[Q] Problems Flashing Clockwork Mod

Hey All,

I am trying to install CyanogenMod 6.1 onto my DHD. I have successfully rooted, but when I try to install ClockworkMod Recovery via Rom Manager, It says that the flash was successful, but when I attempt to reboot into recovery I get a red triangle with an exclamation mark. I'd upload a picture but as I am new I'm not allowed yet


So obviously it hasn't installed properly even when it says it has. I have tried uninstalling and re-installing, and when I try to install older/newer versions of CWM, it says that an error has occurred.

Does anybody know how to fix this? or alternatively is another recovery firmware available, such as Amon_RA for the DHD?

Thanks in advance guys

on the sdcard in the Clockwork directory, delete the .settings file and the download directory.

Try again it will flash now.

I have already 'reported' the problem here.

Hey there leppie,

I did as you instructed, I closed the application, deleted the .settings file and download directory inside the clockwork directory, and it reinstalled. No difference, still getting the phone icon with the red triangle and exclamation mark

do you any other suggestions I could try?

I'm sorry, but I don't understand your post. Does it have something to do with the discussion?

You are rooted, but are you s-off? You need s-off to bypass the emmc lock on your phones memory.

If you have only root, anything you flash will disappear back to stock whenever you reboot.

Thanks for your reply, I am currently S-ON, which probably explains the issues I'm having. Could you point me in the direction of a straightforward guide for turning S-OFF for the DHD?

You can take a look here, here or here, for example. Or maybe next time you could try to use that funny button with "SEARCH THIS FORUM" written on it. :P

I have managed to get S-OFF and I'm successfully running CyanogenMod 6.1.2 It feels like i've set my phone free, it's much faster and the additional options and tweaks are very much appreciated!

Now it's time for a faster kernel :P :P

Thanks has been given to all who helped in the thread

Happy New Year to you all tomorrow!
