    cwm recovery for rk3188

    What is cwm recovery?

    Is a recovery image that let us to make backups and restore of our actual firmware with all our applications installed, it makes a mirrored copy of our system. Very useful if you want to try install new roms and after test it you want to come back at the state you had before.

    You can too install roms in cwm zip format (I will do a generic zip soon so you can install roms using this way) without use any external pc so simply, you copy the zip to the sdcard and flash it from cwm recovery.
    This tool have more functionality like clear data,clear cache, mount and unmount file-system, format them, etc...

    YOU DON'T NEED TO BE ROOT TO INSTALL CWM RECOVERY IN YOUR SYSTEM. So you can use it to make a backup of the stock rom or any rom installed in your stick.

    From cwm we cant modify our partitions space, so we cant modify user app size or system size.

    Where can i get this tool?
    http://androtab.info/clockworkmod/rockchip/
    fun from androtab made the work, but I think that he is busy, no updates in his page for a long time.
    You can use his generic cwm recovery and it is fully functional to make backup and restore them, except that if you have a problem with the kernel partition you will be not able to boot in recovery
    So I used his generic cwm ram-disk and I modded it a little to add the stock recovery kernel on it. So with it you will be able to recover the stick if something was wrong.
    All credits to fun_ from androtab, he did all the hard work, I only modded it, modify some little things, and add a kernel so we can format and flash the kernel partition from cwm. So it is not my work, it is fun_ work. If it works for you, then Thanks to fun_, if something fails or not work, for sure it is my fault.

    How to install it?
    A very good explication by MhagnumDw with other method to install it:

    0) Open ROM Flash Tool.exe
    1) Enter the flash mode
    2) Extract the recovery.img from specific cwm image, rename it to recovery-cwm.img and place it in the folder FinlessROM (this step is only to facilitate the next step)
    3) Let marked only the "recovery" and set the path FinlessROM\recovery-cwm.img (see image)
    4) And last click Flash ROM

    It is a explication for the rk3066 devices, but it will work for the rk3188 devices too.


    A new way to install cwm recovery from any rom and without pc.(RECOMMENDED, specially if you use lewy roms)

    1. Install from play store the free apps Terminal emulator (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=jackpal.androidterm&hl=es)and busybox installer(https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....busybox&hl=es)
    2. Open busybox installer, grant superuser permission,Use normal install (Not smart Install) then when it finish close the app.
    3. Download http://www.freak-tab.de/leolas/cwm/term-install.zipfrom your stick, it must be downloaded in /sdcard/download/ (this is the default folder if you use the stock browser for download it.
    4. Download your specific cwm zip from this thread and it need to be in /sdcard/download too.
    5. Open Terminal emulator and write:
    Code:
    su 
    cd /sdcard/Download 
    unzip term-install.zip 
    unzip theNameOfYourSpecificCwmRecovery.img.zip
    mv theNameOfYourSpecificCwmRecovery.img cwm-recovery.img
    sh cwm.sh
    Replace theNameOfYourSpecificCwmRecovery for your specific cwm zip name, for example in imito qx1 it will be qx1-cwm-recovery
    After write su you must grant superuser permission to terminal emulator.

    I hope the instructions are enough clear but if you have any question I will be for here
    Have fun.



    How boot in recovery mode?

    There is an apk made by Petrus (credits to him). This apk let us to reboot, boot in recovery or bootloader mode (NEED ROOT). Is the simplier way to enter in recovery, you can find it in:
    http://www.freaktab.com/showthread.p...App&highlight=

    You can use terminal emulator in your stick and write:
    Code:
    su
    reboot recovery
    Thats all, I will try to help you if you have any question. And of course if you can complete this tutorial or suggest any corrections, you are always welcome.

    If you dont have a cwm for your specific device please upload your stock recovery.img and I will make one for you.

              1st CWM backup!

              Just to let you know leolas, I have just made my 1st CWM backup onto my ext SD card of my X7.

              Thanks very much for your help. This really adds a fantastic feature to the Minix NEO X7, and now makes it so easy to try out different ROM's. Brilliant

                          Good work.

                          I use fun's cwm to flash the new ROMs and switch kernels. Backup is also useful.

                          Might be an idea to make a couple of posts in the downloads thread one for cwm and one for useful cwm scripts.

                              Good idea. Thanks a lot 900supersport. In tablets must be more difficult, I don't know how remap the keys in cwm.

                              No so time usually for me is taking only 2 or 3 minutes.
                              What filesystem is in your external sd?
                              And it is full? Have enough free space?
                              Can you adb connect the device?
