looks like I will be the guinea pig and try it first...here goes nothing!


Update: Confirmed Working!! Making a backup, then flashing a rom

Update 2: Backup worked, mount USB storage from CWM fails, so I have to load into the phone since we got no SD Card

Boots into CMW... Should I try a ROM?

Backup appears to work....

Mount SD didn't work.... Although I didn't figure it would...

Having issues on my Mac. I did the flash, I see the status on the device, but I can't seem to get the recovery to take. It just dumps me into the stock recovery.

./fastboot-mac flash recovery LTErecovery_cwr.img
sending 'recovery' (5300 KB)... OKAY
writing 'recovery'... OKAY

I re-pushed CWM recovery and seems to be running fine now. Just installed a mod without issues.

Question. I'm getting 'fastboot' is not recognized...etcetc' when I'm trying to flash the recovery. Noob issue I know. Should i be normally booted up into android when I run that script? I'm unlocked and rooted already.

I pretty much just plugged my phone in, put the downloaded file in the root of my harddrive and made sure cmd was pointing there and ran the script. and it gave me that message that I said above

no, your phone needs to be in fastboot (From off, hold volume up and down and power). then run that.

Weird I couldn't get into recovery.

I was already unlocked so I booted to fastboot, ran the "fastboot flash recovery LTErecovery_cwr.img" command, which worked, then ran "fastboot reboot".

Went back into fastboot, choose Recovery, and all I got was the red triangle until it rebooted itself back into the OS.

i am definitely in recovery, but have not tested doing a backup or restore. I am really trying to get CWR off so that i can run the OTA upgrade, but i dont think there is a stock recovery img file out yet.
