Default 18/Nov 2.5.1.2 r2: ClockworkMod recovery for HTC Desire HD

I'm pleased to present my ClockworkMod recovery for the HTC Desire HD (aka HTC Ace / HTC Spade). This recovery has been built and setup by me and is in no way endorsed buy Koush, so please don't ask him for support! I am still testing this recovery, so caution is advised and you use it at your own risk!

You will need the ENG HBOOT installed on your device to flash this recovery!

You can load recovery by powering on the device with 'Volume Down' pressed and selecting the 'recovery' option, by using 'adb recovery', by installing 'Quick Boot' from the Market or by installing 'ROM Manager' from the market.

Navigation in the recovery image as follows:
  • Volume Up / Down to move between options
  • Power key to select an option
  • Select 'go back' option to go back
Step by step install instructions
  • Download 2.5.1.2 r1 ClockworkMod Recovery for Desire HD - DOWNLOAD
  • Download fastboot if you do not have it already.
  • Turn off your phone and take out the battery. Unplug the phone from the PC / charger.
  • Replace the battery and turn the phone back on with 'volume down' held, then select 'fastboot' (using the power button).
  • Plug the phone into the PC.
  • Extract the fastboot zip file.
  • From a command prompt (at the directory containing these new files!) run 'fastboot-windows flash recovery recovery-clockwork-2.5.1.2-ace-modaco-r2.img' (subsituting 'fastboot-mac' or 'sudo fastboot-linux' as required)
  • When this finishes, from the command prompt run 'fastboot-windows reboot' (again substituting 'fastboot-mac' or 'sudo fastboot-linux' as required)
  • Done!


The changelog is in the next post.

Works like a charm, no more 3 time scrolling to activate the power button. :)

Recovery seem to be working ok just like the test. But I still find it strange that I cant mount the SD card if I boot to the recovery using the Volume down and power method. The only way I can mount is to boot using the ROM manager. (By the way, I have the S-OFF and root).
