View Full Version : No recovery, clockwork OR stock

09-20-2011, 10:45 PM
Uh, well testing DXC's latest bugsquasher for that miui (9.16) with the constant 100% didn't go so well...

Initially I restored a CM7 nandroid that I made before flashing miui to await the fix. Fix came, so I was going to restore that buggy miui build that I saved just for this purpose and test the fix only... I wiped everything, and applied the fix and rebooted, then realised I forgot to restore the miui nandroid... so basically i applied the fix to cm7 gb (fyi - not advisable)...

Had to sbf... tried the .602 1kds cd, didn't work (verified md5 & cd burn), so used the .340 cd...

rooted, flashed the tbh. 602 aio to get back to the gb kernel so I could restore the cm7 gb nandroid from an hour earlier...

still with me?

ok, so after installing a few needed apps, I find I can't access clockwork recovery either through the power button (cm7) or rom manager (flashed droidx 2nd unit recovery), nor can I access stock recovery, just hangs on boot logo, needs a battery pull to get further

uninstalled rom manager, ran fixed permissions, nothing working to get into either recovery

lots of reading and whatnot, saw a few similar posts and wondering if anybody has a suggestion as I believe another sbf is needed at this point. Everything else is working fine, just no recovery...

well... zoe... from what i've found out... the aio is hit and miss with getting a good stock recovery.. it broke mine till i sbf'd...

A lot of people have reported stock recovery to be broken when running the TBH prerooted versions.

Edit: Aaaaaand ninjad.

What I guess I find strange is that i was able to access clockwork with the d2 bootstrap and flash the latest cm7gb (well it was rev's 9-17) but then it just broke from there...
When I was on the .602 i did try to restore my nandroid, but that was a no go. idk the recovery version # but it was the old green text, the nandroid I tried to restore was made with the cyan text. also rom manager reports that the current installed recovery is the latest (4/5.0.2)

so a bug from the aio didn't appear on gb .602, but somehow carried over to cm7 though I religiously wipe etc...

gah, charging up...

Edit: I used that aio once before and while I saw other's have probs none for me then...

yeah superuser is up to date, as is the Rom Manager so i guess i'll just have to repeat the sbf and get to a rooted .602 kernel so i can restore my good cm7 gb nandroid.

wish i knew why my 1kds .602 sbf disc failed, checked the md5 and verified the burn (i learned that lesson the hard way once). same computer and program that i used to burn the .340 disc...

in just a few minutes i'll likely sbf back to froyo, take ota, root and then restore. best d3 ota root thread process suggestions welcomed i guess, never paid much attention as i was so far ahead when this came out... (oh i see there's a great big stickied thread, ha ha i suck at navigating these forums, and the search sucks too, using google to search the forums is waaay better)

FIXED, and super easy too

droidxchat over on rootzwiki (and here to i believe) posted

Can't boot into the new CWM Here's a quick fix.
(http://rootzwiki.com/showthread.php?4905-Can-t-boot-into-the-new-CWM-<br /><br />t)
what the issue is that Rom Manager is trying to install the newer recovery file but that the preinstall/app folder doesn't have room (or more likely appears not to) based on the slightly different file size of the file

using root explorer navigate to preinstall/app and delete something (i too chose NFSShift)

then reflash clockworkmod recovery in rom manager and reboot

damn so simple and took 13 seconds, much faster than sbf'ing and re-navigating back to .602 just to restore a nandroid

now i can restore that buggy miui and then flash the fix that droidxchat also made for the 9.16 staying at 100% bug. the thing that i meant to be doing when i unleashed this whole debacle on myself...
