Good day readers,I welcome you again to Tweakloaded. This is yet another awesome tutorial for Android users.
Let’s get started,what’s CWM?
CWM stands for ClockWorkMod (recovery). This is a lightweight recovery image provided free for Android devices by Rom Manager team. There are many types of recovery but cwm is a free Recovery image,easy to use,nice GUI and safe. It also has a premium version though. *winks*
WHY DO YOU NEED A CUSTOM RECOVERY?
Nice question,as a longterm experienced Android user Custom recovery is mandatory if you love to play with your phone by modifying fonts,bootanimation,custom rom installations etc. Installing a custom recovery will enable you make a Full Nandroid Backup of your device in case anything goes wrong,you just have to restore your back-up and prevent your droid from BRICKING and saving you from Cadiac Arrest..lol
Before I proceed to the BigBang Session please if you are not rooted you shouldn’t be here.
Take time to read about rooting on this blog first.
So I hope you are now ROOTED! Yagah,if you are rooted hop in let’s ride….
TRY THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK
Make sure your phone is ROOTed
Charge your battery very well.
Go to PlayStore search for ROM MANAGER.
Download the app,install and run it.
It will request for ROOT permission just click GRANT or ALLOW on your screen when you see the prompt.
Goto install Recovery on the Rom Manager it should be the one at the top of the screen.
Choose CWM and it will ask you to confirm if its truly your device e.g GLACIER (HTC MYTOUCH 4G) click ok or next to proceed.
Make it download the recovery image and flash itself on your phone.
After a successful installation,you will see a option that reads
REBOOT TO RECOVERY NOW.
Click YES and yagah you are in your newly installed Custom recovery.
***Please make a Backup of your Rom immediately,don’t procrastinate***
