Hi recently i read thread about fix MD5 mismatch error but it uses terminal and some lines which sometimes result in errors and are difficult to remember all steps also so i after my research i found this that we DON'T NEED terminal emulator or something to fix it. we can fix it in just 20 seconds. HOW ? read below > :eek:

1. Go to backup folder of clockworkmod

2. Rename backup folder to the name you want for example XYZ

Note: dont add space between names.

3. open that folder and open this file nandroid.md5 with any text editor, i use DB text editor which comes with OI file manager


you will see something like this :

4. delete everything from it except boot.img and recovery.img line.
after doing this u will see something like this :

thats all now save it and test it it will work for sure as it works for me everytime.
Good Luck :cool:

This method is a noob proof method, but i wouldnt recommend it! Simply because skipping an md5 checksum on some of the data files in the nandroid md5 isnt a smart move, specially if you're restoring a rom such as CM which uses codeworkx in its md5.
Idk, i would go with the terminal emulator and fix the issue there! If you ask some well known devs, they will tell you its not a smart idea to skip any type of md5 sum

Some people dont have enough knowledge about fixing md5 so this will help them.
I always follow this tutorial and i never faced even a single issue till now so no harm in this method.

Rom: Chobits
Editor: RB text editor (root browser)

When I open the md5 file, I did not see the boot.img and recovery.img line exept the rest, so I deleted everything leaving the Md5 Empty. Then on the CWM I restore it, suddenly, I freak out|!!!!! It REALLY WORKED!!!! packingfreakinton! You're a freakin genius! :D
