I'm on a Galaxy S2 running Gingerbread 2.3.4, my baseband version is I9100XXKI1 and my kernel version is 22.214.171.124-I9100XWKH4-CL487028root@DELL136 #2
Using Odin3 v1.85 and S2 Root. (Superoneclick kept freezing on me)
My aim is to install Cyanogenmod 7.1.
So far I started off by trying to flash it with XWKDD Insecure, which I believe is wrong? However after rooting it, I installed ClockworkMod Recovery, downloaded the ROM and tried installing it - which is where the problem started - I kept getting the error in recovery mode 'Invalid whole-file signature'.
It just wouldn't boot in to ClockworkMod Recovery.
So after some digging around I managed to find a file to flash to my device for the CWM Recovery mode, tried it, and it worked. However, I still couldn't install Cyanogenmod from my SDcard.
I tried it a few times, wiped/formatted a few times and ended up getting my device stuck in a bootloop.
So, I've managed to get it out of the boot loop, and started fresh...
I flashed it with XWKH4 Insecure, unrooted, rerooted etc.
I've downloaded CWM again, downloaded the Cyanogenmod again, tried installing it, and once again it's gone back into Androids recovery and failed to install because of the 'whole-file signature' and failing to verify it.
I did post this in Q&A as well, however it doesn't seem to be as popular a forum as this one, I'm not really looking to wait for days for a response.
I recently rooted my Motorola Droid and I am trying to run Rom Manager by clockworkmod and when i attempt to Flash Clockworkmod Recovery I get an error saying, "An error occurred while attempting to run privileged commands!" Can someone offer me some help on what to do, I have tried uninstalling and turning the phone off.
I recently downloaded and flashed my Qmobile A10 with this ROM URL....
And after flashing it I had a RAVEN ROM first which was getting stuck at boot logo. Even after the flashing I get to see the RAVEN ROM boot logo and then I see the Canvas(The ROM I installed) boot animation. Problem is that I don't get signals. They keep dropping.Further more I don't get to go to recovery again. Everytime I try it just factory resets the mobile.I tried going to Recovery mode by:
1) Holding Vol UP + Vol Down + Power Button > Vol Up 2) Mobile Uncle Tools again 3) ROM Manager 4) Terminal Emulator 5) Some flashbit.bat file I found for my phone 6) SP Flash Tools
All give the same result that my phone is factory reset. Except SP Flash, even after installing drivers it prompts that the drivers may not be installed and a USB error 8100.
I done a backup using Clorkwork Mod before I flashed a new ROM onto my phone. Now when i am trying to restore the backup onto the phone using CWM it completes the task but whenever I reboot the phone it gets passed the first samsung screen but hangs at the second SAMSUNG screen where the text is pulsing.
I have tried Wipe / Data factory reset, Wipe Cache, Wipe Dalvick and fix permissions. None of these seem to make any difference. The only thing that has worked in flashing a new ROM but I do not want to lose any of my apps /configs.
randomly yesterday my phone shut off and rebooted itself. Well, it became stuck on the Samsung boot screen. So I reset it again, and again, and again. Eventually I went into recovery mode and clicked the wipe data/factory reset button. Actually, at first I clicked the wipe cache button. So I rebooted it, and now everytime it boots it goes straight to recovery mode (Volume Up, Home, Power). So i began looking for solutions and decided it would be best to restore to a stock Rom. Well I downloaded one, and attempted to look for it in the internal SD card but all it said was "unable to mount sd". Did some more research, and found something called odin. I went into download mode and odin was able to recognize my device. Loaded up my stock rom (pda, .md5) and it would say this:
<ID:0/003> Added!! <OSM> Enter CS for MD5.. <OSM> Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable.. <OSM> Please wait.. <OSM> KIES_HOME_I317UCAMA4_I317ATTAMA4_578342_REV04_user _low_ship.tar.md5 is valid. <OSM> Checking MD5 finished Sucessfully.. <OSM> Leave CS.. <ID:0/003> Odin v.3 engine (ID:3).. <ID:0/003> File analysis..
Not entirely sure why it stopped at recovery.img. I installed the Samsung Drivers from the website and still nothing. Uninstalled odin and went to an older one, still same message. Installed a newer one, still same message.
Galaxy 3:I5801 with firmware upgraded to 2.2 , was rooted already..I had been trying to upgrade to 2.3.7 with cyanogen 7.2..Clockwork mode recovery was not installed and instead in the normal recovery mode a zip file ,containing the files:META-INF,System and zimage, was renamed as "update.zip"
It did accept the zip and displayed "Welcome to android 2.3.7" but then was stuck displaying "I5801" logo.I am still able to enter the download mode (Vol - | power | home combo) and the "Forced upload by key pressing(vol + | power | home)". I tried usng ODIN to flash , it is flashing and displaying "pass" but no change in the phone .
I have a chinaphone and I'm trying to install a custom recovery so I can make/restore backups if anything messes up the phone, but it hasn't got an official clockwork mod recovery.
I've read that you can build a custom recovery using the ClockworkMod Builder website with the original recovery img extracted from the device,I tried using this method to extract the recovery: http:[url]....
Then I used an App called Online Nandroid Backup which has successfully created a recovery img for me, I ran it through the ClockworkMod Builder website but it says no changes were made.
I make root at one LG e510, after I put Rom manager and install custom recovery clockworkmod recovery. Everything fine till here, but after try to acces recovery, spears only stock recovery and not custom recovery.
I hit the top button. Flash Clockworkmod recovery or what ever it said. I then backed up my Current ROM. I then downloaded Cyanogen v6.0.0 cr2. It downloaded and rebooted my phone. But It went to a screen with a Triangle w/ exclamation and a phone under it. I then hit the up vol button and camera, and now I'm at the Android system recovery page and I don't know what to do next. These are my options reboot system now apply sdcard:update.zip wipe data/factory rest wipe cache partition wipe base band data. I did click to backup current ROM and wipe data and cache.
I have a Samsung Galaxy Nexus 4G on Verizon, and I just unlocked the bootloader, then I tried to gain root access through this guide, started at the "ClockworkMod Method": [HOW TO] Root the GSM/HSPA+ Samsung Galaxy Nexus - Android Forums now when I flash the su.zip and try to reboot, the phone is stuck in the Google reboot screen.
What commands the ClockWorkMod recovery uses to generate backup images? Like when you browse to your /mnt/sdcard/Clockworkmod/backups/ directory and see your *.img files, what command is used to generate that file? I know in linux you can use dd and cat (block partition) > *.img and that would generate it, but i want to know the exact command used by ClockWorkMod recovery.
I reckon that I have deleted all the data from partitions such as boot, system, cache, etc all of them. Hence, the Nook tablet isn't starting into any mode except the recovery mode of ClockWorkMod. How to restore the boot entries of a Nook 16GB tablet?
I have a problem with my LG optimus 4XHD. I didn't like the 4.1.2 lg skinned android so i wanted to install a custom rom. I started by rooting my phone that worked but then i flashed clockworkmod recovery without unlocking the bootloader. Now i can't enter my recovery anymore but i can still boot into android. Now my question is: Can i still unlock the bootloader now without bricking my phone?

I try to understand android boot sequence on my JB (under CM10). I found some docs and there should be specific partitions (boot, recovery, system, cache, data).
My understanding of the boot sequence is now:
A) normal boot: 1) Power ON -> 2) bootloader -> 3) boot-partition where i flashed the kernel aka boot.img -> 4a) system-partition with the OS (libs, UI, etc) where i unpacked over CWM my customROM.zip -> 4b) data-partition, where i unpacked google-apps.zip and installed all the apps -> 4c) cache-partition with user data
B) recovery boot (adb reboot recovery): 1) Power ON -> 2) bootloader -> 3) recovery-partition with CWM where i may unpack all the .zip stuff to proper partitions, or restore from sdcard, etc.
Is this correct? I wonder, because i didn't installed CWM into recovery-partition. It cames from install of CM10 (fastboot -i 0xfce flash boot boot.img), so it must be in boot-partition and not in recovery?
So, next confusion: i looked up to /proc/mtd and i don't see neither boot nor recovery partition here:
I did a backup with CWM and loocked the data. There aren't boot, and recovery backups:
# ls -lha /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/2012-10-04.18.49.55/ d---rwxr-x 2 system sdcard_r 4.0K Oct 4 18:56 . d---rwxr-x 3 system sdcard_r 4.0K Oct 4 18:49 .. ----rwxr-x 1 system sdcard_r 1.6K Oct 4 18:54 .android_secure.vfat.dup ----rwxr-x 1 system sdcard_r 54.6M Oct 4 18:55 cache.yaffs2.img ----rwxr-x 1 system sdcard_r 360.2M Oct 4 18:53 data.yaffs2.img ----rwxr-x 1 system sdcard_r 212 Oct 4 18:56 nandroid.md5 ----rwxr-x 1 system sdcard_r 214.6M Oct 4 18:51 system.yaffs2.img #
So, i think i didn't understand the boot sequence and partition schema corectly.
Is this possible? I'm trying to make an automated script without any user interaction. I can select sideload mode manually using the volume and power buttons when in ClockworkMod Recovery, however I want to enter sideload mode using the command prompt from my computer.
