I can answer this question: it is impossible. There are certain problems in work of this Mod. The first: does'nt making full nandroid backup. The second: does'nt flashing boot.img. It is necessary to develop this program still. But something, already is able: root, interface modding, ect....

Howdy.

I have flashed this recovery image and for the first time, can boot into recovery and see what I'm meant to see! :) Thanks. Previously (2012 hardware) I just hung on the white HTC logo screen.

Now, if I select backup and restore, press the power button, all the text disappears and I'm left with the central hat image... but nothing much happens. Pressing power again brings me back to the main menu. Same thing with -power off. The top option of reboot system now works just fine.

Any ideas? I'd like to backup my current system before flashing WildChild 3, you know - just in case anything goes wrong!

EDIT: immediate edit. cancel all of the above, I'm just new to recovery (obviously!). I went through the main menu a few times, it told me the back button was now active and away I go - backing up as we speak! Apologies!!! and thanks!

haven't tried cm roms on stock kernel would anyone here like to try???

i.m using now a custom kernel on my wfs2012 (overclocked 815 MGz) without trouble, but i can`t flash any CM roms because it hapens error Status7 in CWM. I think that this CWM is too old to flash CM ROMs. But we have no any choise :)
