Resolved [Android] A (relatively) easy way to install CWM in your phone

Some time ago, we were discussing about the best (and safest) way to intall CWM on a rooted device.

Thankfully, Android Developer "LEDelete" has created a windows-based tool to install CWM in almost every phone: The RecoverX Project.

These are the steps you have to follow in order to install CWM:

1. Download the app from its official page: http://ledelete.shost.ca/recoverx/recoverx.html and install it.

2. Make sure your phone is rooted (), the USB Debugging option is activated and that you have all the necessary drivers installed. (Setting your screen sleep time to 5 mins. or more is a good idea too).

3. Launch the RecoverX tool

4. Select your phone manufacturer, your model and the CWM version (if available)

5. Wait for the specific download to finish

6. Plug your phone in (it must be on)

7. Wait for the install to finish (check your phone's screen for the installation confirmation via "superuser" request)

8. That's it.

Once the install is completed, there are several ways to access the CWM (it is a brand-dependent thing). Just perform a search using your phone model + CWM as a wildcard.

You can also look for more info on the RecoverX Project thread at XDA Developers http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1773227

Question, My phone does not have a CWM version yet. Will this work for my phone?
Samsung model ZTEV768
Android version 2.3.7

The website seems to be in French so I wasn't able to understand much about the software.

I have changed the link to point to the product page, which is in part-English. Non-English links are not allowed anyways.

You will find the list of devices, for which RecoverX will work on, here:

Many devices do not seem to be in the list, including my model too .

Sorry about the non-english link, my bad.

Regarding the supported devices list, that is only the "official" list. If you check some of the posts within the thread you'll see many people have managed to install CWM on "unsupported" devices (as long as the manufacturer is listed and you choose an older CWM version instead ot the latest). It is a trial and error process I guess.

Anyway, I haven't read anything about RecoverX bricking phones or things like that, so I think it is safe enough to give it a try.

Well I checked the thread and no mention of my model of phone (which is a cheapie phone) none the less there is a ominous warning within the software's GUI that warns of bricking the phone. That's enough for me for now, maybe I'll give it a shot when I decide to upgrade and use my cheapie for experimentation.
