Clockworkmod Recovery for the HTC Chacha.

Please note I don't have the device and therefore can't give any support. I'm sorry.

You will find adlx.xda's cwm HERE [source]
My older, own CWM 4 port can be found HERE or from the attachments

02-05-12: Updated thread and dropped S-OFF tag.
15-04-12: adlx.xda has updated his 5.0.2.8.
05-02-12: adlx.xda has built a 5.0.2.8 CWM Recovery.
23-01-12: adlx.xda has built a 5.0.2.7 CWM Recovery.
24-07-11: Updated with huge CID list for ALL s-off users.
25-07-11: Updated with CWS__001.
14-10-11: Added original recovery update.zip
15-10-11: Fixed Error 6 bug for stock recovery


Code:
Put PH06img.zip on your sdcard, reboot into bootloader mode and flash CWM.

Quick tut to boot into bootloader mode:
Code:
Go to settings -> Power -> untick Fastboot
Turn off the phone
Hold VOL Down + Power for 5 seconds

If you are already rooted and want to flash the CWM recovery on your Chacha, you can also:

- Use Alex.C's 1 click recovery flasher,
- Use Goo Manager
Both applications are available for free on the Market.

Update: Here is the stock recovery.
You can flash this in order to help you update to version 1.52, which can be found HERE

Code:
A quick how-to on upgrading version 1.33 to 1.52

Step 3: Flash the image by rebooting into bootloader
Step 4: Put CWM's PH06IMG.zip on your SDCard again
Step 5: Flash CWM by rebooting into bootloader.

Got help from Geek78, which will order the XTC Clip.

Edit:
Nevermind, I found all I need thanks to Football from the RUU.
I am setting up my build environment (Read: Installing Linux and downloading 11gb of stuff) and will compile the first trial recovery, availible for all S-OFF users to try. For now, those only are people which got the device in an S-OFF state, or ordered an XTC clip, though I believe Alpharev will offer an option to get S-OFF for free. Time will tell!

Really? No single person? You just need to type out two commands. It won't do anything to your phone, I pinky-swear!

Got the result from XDA user knotdevel, thanks a lot for that. Now I have everything I need to work on a cwm port! :)

Grr.... I will have to wait untill the 26 to test it. I am on hollidays without my chacha...

I'm very excited about this too! Can't wait for someone to try :)

IF it doesn't work (might be that the buttons are not configured right), you can just flash the 1.18 OTA (faster than full image dump) and your original recovery will be back, though I don't see any point of restoring to the stock recovery.. I'm also not sure if updating will remove your S-OFF, so you're best off just keeping this recovery build.

oh, I'm going on vacation Juli 28th (which is also my 17th birthday, hurray!), so I think I'll be able to read your response, but don't think I'll be able to build a new recovery before I'm back, if it's not perfect yet, that is :)

Hi man, got a Chacha yesterday :) S-Off. I'm wiling to try that, but I couldn't root it yet. Also I'm totally new to HTC Phones (I come from Moto).

I've tried that:

C:\>fastboot.exe boot recovery-cwm-chacha.img
downloading 'boot.img'...
OKAY [ 1.795s]
booting...
FAILED (remote: not allowed)
finished. total time: 1.802s

Duh? So I guess it means we can't try it like that? Gonna need to actually flash it :( ?

Anyone has the stock recovery.img I could flash back in case this one doesn't work?

it won't work. we don't have engineer s-off.

First trial build is up. Can any ROOTED S-OFF user flash it?

If you still have to root I recommend superoneclick, which can be found Here.

IF you have fastboot (I don't know if your phones support it), try from a command prompt

Code:
su
fastboot boot recovery-chacha.img

otherwise get the file on your phones sdcard, mount the sdcard on your phone and from either a command prompt or using a terminal emulator type in

Code:
su
flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-chacha.img

Thanks for trying! Unfortunately a recovery is all I can do without actually owning the device, so no custom roms or cyanogenmod port by me.. I'm sorry.

recovery-chacha.img can be found HERE


Quick thanks to the people who made this possible:
koush for his amazing work on clockworkmod recovery
TeamDouche for their awesome build system used for CyanogenMod
HTC for the device and update
Football for sharing the update
knotdevel for sharing information about the partition layout of the htc chacha.

Ah, thanks, I guess we would need an engineer HBOOT for that then, I believe seeing someone with an engineering hboot around.

The inability to use fastboot does not mean we can't flash recoveries. We could still flash_image from the device, but I don't know if that'll work with just ship s-off..
Another (rather painful, but working) method is a fake recovery, which I really would dislike to see, but might be a last resort.

    CWM HTC Chacha v5.0.2.7 by Adlx

    I have built a 5.0.2.7 CWM Recovery, if you want to give it a try: http://www.mediafire.com/?crcwnigbr17dc8s ;)

    I've uploaded a new version of CWM 5.0.2.8, which enables the Power button to select options in the menus, as it is standard and it's what users expects ;)

    in the latest build, the camera is still crashing. by the way do we need to open up a new thread for CM 10.1 development?

    I'll open a new thread...

    I've fixed the issue with charging the phone when powered off.

    Here is the latest CWM I have built for Chacha:

    http://goo-inside.me/devs/adlx/chacha/cwm/recovery-5028-2-chacha.img

    If you run SuperOSR or CM7.2 or any rom having flash_image, the easiest way to flash it is via my app 1-click Recovery Flasher, available on the Market (look for "adlx" and you'll find it).
