  4. it is posible to remove Clockworkmode without reflashing the phone and how?

  5. Wts THE advanage of clockworkmode(CWM) &WHY WE INSTALL ?

    ReplyDelete
  6. Android is locked down to what you get with the phone every android phone comes with a recovery mode incase it messes up this makes it easier for phone fixers to fix phones eg if you get a boot loop. Clockwork is a custom recovery with more options like the ability to flash custom roms cm7 is one of many if you look on XDA there are loads for every android phone going you can even get android 4.0 ICS and yes you can get rid of it by using kies to reflash a stock rom but you would never need to do this.

    2. Try turning off your phone and then rebooting it by pressing home+power+volume up buttons. I´ve noticed that in some forums they start the recovery mode that way. I believe that is because the galaxy ace s5830 and 5830i are diferent...

    1. You chose the option "update from sdcard" which searches for a file named update.zip on the root of your sd card. You can go with the install from zip option or rename the CWM file to update.zip.

      Delete
  39. I have had the two cases, flashed CWM succesfully and unsuccesfully. The main difference is the version of Android you are using, when i used Froyo (2.2.1) it did not boot and i had to save my semi-bricked phone through ODIN (Vol Down + Home + Power for download mode on boot) but when i used it on Gingerbread (2.3.4) it worked perfectly.

    Hope it helps.
