[OBSOLETE][Recovery] Clockwork Recovery
FIRST IF YOU HAVE INSTALLED THE OTA UPDATE(TO 2.2.2) ALREADY AND WERE NOT ROOTED BEFORE THE OTA UPDATE YOU CAN ONLY GET CLOCKWORK RECOVERY THROUGH THE FAST BOOT METHOD BELOW AS ONLY ROOT CAN FLASH CWR THROUGH ROM MANAGER
IF YOU ALREADY HAVE CWR INSTALLED BUT DO NOT HAVE OR TRIED TO INSTALL THE OTA UPDATE YET AND ARE STILL ON VERSION 2.2.1 DO NOT UPDATE!!! DOWNLOAD THE ZIP IN THIS THREAD http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1008650 AND FLASH THROUGH CLOCKWORK RECOVERY AND YOU WILL HAVE THE UPDATE PLUS IT WILL BE ROOTED (CURRENTLY THERE IS NO WAY TO ROOT WITH THE UPDATE UNLESS IT'S THIS METHOD)
IF YOUR STREAK 7 CAME PRE INSTALLED WITH ANDROID VERSION 2.2.2 YOU CAN ONLY GET CLOCKWORK RECOVERY THROUGH THE FAST BOOT METHOD BELOW AS ONLY ROOT CAN FLASH CWR THROUGH ROM MANAGER
Ladies and Gentlemen,
After over 72 long hours and barely any sleep we now have a working Clockwork Recovery!!! I cant believe I did it! Thanks to everyone in the community that pitched in to make this happen, I couldnt have done it without the help of all of you! Thanks!!
Special thanks to Koush for taking the time to chat with me and Bogdi1988.. one guy on irc told me "You should feel lucky, Koush is even talking to you about this, he ignored me for weeks" hahaha I guess he knew how close we were so we didn't mind helping us get to the finish line! I dont know what exactly he changed for us but he put the finishing touches on it.
AGAIN: YOU CAN FLASH CLOCKWORK RECOVERY MOD BY USING ROM MANAGER(IF YOU HAVE ROOT ACCESS) OR INSTALL MANUALLY THROUGH FASTBOOT
DO NOT PERFORM A FACTORY RESET FROM WITHIN ANDROID YOU WILL MESS UP YOUR PHONE. IF YOU WANT TO DO A FACTORY RESET DO IT THROUGH CLOCKWORK RECOVERY
make sure your phone is connected to the computer and you have entered fastboot mode on the phone by holding down Volume down and the power button at the same time
rename this file to recovery.img (or any easy name to type)and place into the same directory as your fastboot executable (usually androidsdkfolder/tools)
open up a command prompt and navigate to the androidsdkdir/tools folder and type this in at the C prompt
(to make sure you're connected)
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
Thanks to Koush, Bogdi1988, BinaryBishop, Lou, nledevil , Hellzya, KenAP, Josh (Hellzya:"hey Jo who are you?") hahaha and everyone else that helped us get this done!!!!!
LET IT BEGIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
