There are three ways to install these.


1. If you have not unlocked your bootloader then follow these instructions thanks to superdragonpt.

2. Flash in a custom recovery:

1. Copy zip to sdcard
2. Boot to recovery
3. Install zip from sdcard
4. Select custom recovery zip
5. Accept install
6. Reboot or reboot to recovery
7. Enjoy!

3. Fastboot: note there is no way to boot to recovery while in fastboot mode:

nexus one , galaxy s2, nexus (9250) nexus 4.... I used respectively. I have some experience. but not what I do. can driver problem. (nothign) happens with flash tool. that's why I did not install it "recovery"... I could not unlock the bootloader. I only ask. The most important favor. adb commands Is it possible to accomplish this task.
* for example --- adb reboot bootloader --- fastboot oem unlock ---- ---- fastboot devices ---

Thanks ;)

In your opinion whats the best one/less buggy?
Regards

I think CWM is less buggy, mainly because it is just regular CWM with a few modifications. The two bugs I have found are fairly minor and related to my modifications. One is the default compression resets to fast but I need to test if it is the menu or the setting, and the internal sd defaults to data/media instead of data/media/0.

As for which is best, that is a personal preference. I changed CTR a bit for our device, and my preferences, mainly just stupid stuff like reboot to bootloader instead of download. They both should work just fine, I haven't had a bunch of time to test everything, as I finally got CM booting with display. I think I know what needs to be done for both of those issues, just haven't got any feedback, to know if anything else needs to be fixed.

If your touchscreen is still broke then I would suggest CWM, I forgot to change the default keys for CTR as it is flipped, so the buttons are still upside down.

I was also working on Naptser Touch Recovery, COT, Philz and TWRP. I have them all booting, except TWRP, but there are issues with all of them. I was basically working on them when my frustration with CM got too high.

Our biggest obstacle is our 6mb recovery partition, all of these recoveries are themed and include huge png files that make them almost unusable. I have found a few ways with CWM based recoveries to get a lot of extra space, but still not enough space to include all the themed pngs. Some of the pngs are almost 1MB alone, so that really makes it hard.

If you have any other questions feel free to ask.

Because the results can not be understood from the first start. I started from the first stage. Successful results.

Sorry, it is very hard to understand what you are trying to say. The drivers are the hardest part, unless you have an old Windows XP computer laying around. It is really easy with XP, but there are issues with 7 and 8.

Just like Samsung has odin, we have SP Flashtools. Basically if you want to do this, you have to get SP Flashtool to work.

If you have any other questions, feel free to ask, but please include both english and your native language so we can translate if we can't understand your english.
