I did the whole thing, waited for about half an hour (twice), but absolutely nothing is happening. Any tips?
I had to try several times in order to successfully do it.
I don't know if it changes anything but, did you activate the "USB Debugging" ? I activated it on my last try...
My main problem was linked to the drivers : my computer had a hard time using the right ones (always checking Windows Update, had to disable it).
When it worked, I just pressed the power button, released it, inserted the battery and clicked "Download" in the next 5 sec. My computer used the right drivers, everything went smoothly (CMW installed in less than 5 sec with a big green symbol that I was REALLY happy to see).
If it doesn't trigger in the first 10sec, it failed : you can unplug your USB, shutdown your phone, remove the battery and repeat the process (press the power button, release it, plug the USB cable, insert battery, press Download).
Just keep an eye on your drivers to make sure Windows is using the ones you have installed...
Hope it helps...
