*) i rebooted to recovery manually and
*) installed the zipfile from the "updater"-folder in the internal Storage

Current location of cwm?

Hi chrmhoffmann,

you have created cwm images on goo.im. Unfortunately this service is offline now. Do you have an alternate download location, or can you give a hint on how to build the image out of the given github tree?

    CyanogenMod/CWM is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed.

    This is CWM for the fairphone FP1 (first edition, repartitioned as of FP cherry 1.6). As there are no custom roms (yet), this might not be very useful as of now :)
    Do not install on any other device than the fairphone FP1 first edition - repartitioned as of FP cherry 1.6.

    - The recovery has been compiled from Cyanogenmod 11.0
    - device tree https://github.com/chrmhoffmann/android_device_fairphone_FP1

    Before proceeding please make a complete backup for ALL partitions (especially the recovery with e.g. MTK Droid Root & Tools).

    Thxs go to:
    - bgcngm/mtk-tools
    - the guys who make MTK droid root & tools
    - keesj from fairphone and tmp_ who gave us working kernel

    What works
    - you can adb into the CWM
    - backup and restore (boot, data, cache, system)
    - install from .zip files not tested but should work

    a) copy the recovery to the device: adb push cwm-fp1-kk.0.1.img /storage/sdcard1
    b) adb into device: adb shell
    c) flash to recovery: dd if=/storage/sdcard1/cwm-fp1-kk.0.1.img of=/dev/recovery

    You could also try to use a tool like mtk mobile uncle tools (not tested by me): https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mobileuncle.toolbox


    - update to kitkat compliant version
    - self-compiled kernel

    Older downloads:
    - rename to FP1 so that original zips should be flashable
    - initial version

    Hmmm... You can test the installation by removing that assert from the zip file. It must be somewhere in META-INF/..../upgrade script.

    I guess I could change the ro.product.device to FP1 [EDIT: argh that changes directory structures etc...]


    Should be fixed now. Update recovery to 0.2. See op.

    Updated version See op.

    Does this version work with the new FP1U model with only a different chipset?

    I tested the install on FP1U and can confirm it works.

    EDIT: I only tested the KitKat install.

    su and dd are two separate commands. Either you execute su first to gain root privileges and write your CWM image to /dev/recovery afterwards using dd, or you can use
    su -c "single command you want to execute as root"
    to, sort of, combine both.
