Do you already have a custom recovery installed like clockwork? Great, then go to the failsafe thread to get a newer version of the recovery, and the failsafe installer. If you do not, you need to go to the custom recovery threads as there are multiple, and get any type of custom recovery installed. Then from there, install the newer custom recovery from the failsafe thread, then the failsafe itself from within the new custom recovery, then from there you can install cm11 using the cm11 thread following the instructions.
Just realized cwm is removed,can't install using oneclickrecovery tool either fails says cannot find img etcetc,yet its all there no problems adb is fine and works.Fastboot driver i can't get running although listed yellow exclamation,any ideas?
Fixed it managed to get fastboot going downloaded the required missing dll files and win_usb.inf set up and used ouyatoolbox 184.108.40.206 to rewrite recovery,found i can no longer add the newer 220.127.116.11 recovery zip in update from zip in 18.104.22.168 recovery though? Used to be able to do that. Any way tmore to the point is can someone tell me the step by step process to add cm11 firmware so i don't have to read a load of b@llocks that doesn't end up giving less than nothing in terms of having a clue how,someone in the thread writes about erasing stuff and what oreder but that doesn't tell you how to install or what erase process is or anything detailed and the net has exactly the same misguided tutorials on how to do it.Tellinng a newbie to erase stuff means they will erase all the wrong stuff in all fairness it's good to have a slightly better idea by reading that but it doesn't go in depth or step by step.
All i have found is sites pointing back to the xda pages that do not explain it,it's like your expected to know everything before you have been taught and fill in the gaps off the top of your head.
