Newbie - CWM Recovery

chibrichishchibrichish Posts: 3WeTek Community Member
Hi All

I have downloaded the cwm-v6.0.5.1-dvbbox.zip but cannot seem to boot into it.

I have extracted recovery.img to the root of my fat32 sdcard and followed this video () but it never boots into CWM.

Is there a different version of CWM or TWRP Recovery for the HUB or am I missing something?

Any help would be appreciated.

P.S. I am on WeOS 3.1 if that matters.

Thanks

    Sorry man.You wont get any support here when it comes to hacking your device.I was told play 2 wasnt meant for third party roms which could not be farther from the truth because i have successfully flashed twrp recovery and with a little help from *** developers i have flashed cm 14 rom and omni rom with only one issue.Wont connect to wifi but blazing fast with my hard wire connection. You can email me and ill send you a link.Actually I have to thank dandroid for the twrp file on this forum.all i got from supporters (if thats what you call yourself W) was talked down to and told i cant do something.well that just fueled the fire and i accomplished what i set out to do

    Thanks for the reply,

    I just want to make a nandroid backup to copy my config over to another device. I am happy to use either TWRP or CWM but unfortunately I cannot seem to boot from the mSD.

    Not sure why this is so taboo?

    CWM recovery has nothing to do with hacking your device. WeTek has a download of CWM Recovery for the Core on the forum. No idea why there is no CWM Recovery for the Hub.

    There must be someone who can make a CWM or TWRP recovery for the Hub?
  • JIMBOOOOOOOOOOOOJIMBOOOOOOOOOOOO Posts: 40WeTek Community Member
    once a custom recovery is flashed then your system is hacked.Warranty voided =HACKED.And yes I have found a forum with all hub files but not mentioning the site it is found.I WAS WARNED

    Come on, the recovery.img stays on the SD-card. Nothing is flashed. Zero problems with warranty.
  • JIMBOOOOOOOOOOOOJIMBOOOOOOOOOOOO Posts: 40WeTek Community Member
    Ok I was told that improper information.thank you.I was also told i would brick my device by attempting this and I did not lol.but that was for play 2.was told wetek can tell if you have flashed any custom recovery.via a flash ticker
  • JIMBOOOOOOOOOOOOJIMBOOOOOOOOOOOO Posts: 40WeTek Community Member
    Actually i was right.my recovery of twrp is internal and custom rom is internal.It boots into twrp with no sd card.not sure what you are talking about

    @all

    Let's stop this nonsense of tips/hints or whatever you like to call it.

    We (Support Team) strongly discourage anyone in attempting anything in the NAND/internal memory of your device. You can fiddle around Sdcard, no problem.

    Why have we taken this action, you ask?

    We were friendly enough for allowing this kind of procedures in WeTek PLay 1 and Wetek Core.
    We even made foolproof step-by-step tutorials with videos and whatnot. STILL, a lot of people and I mean A LOT were bricking their devices.

    How you ask?

    There are a lot of ways these procedures could go bad, EVEN tho we have foolproof tutorials...
    And Wetek ended up repairing a bunch of devices, because of bad usage from its users.
    And for this, changing the NAND/internal memory OS was considered a violation of warranty.

    What do we mean with this?

    Devices that reach our repair center with another operating system (we don't care which one) other than WeOS, Wetek Team will not repair and return to sender. Simple.
    Even some devices that still use WeOS, but has traces of improper usage, the same thing happens.

    We know all of you are pros and have no problem with installing and uninstalling whatever software.
    But please take into consideration, that are some users (there are more than you guys think) that have no clue what they are doing, and still mess up their devices even if they are following a simple step-by-step tutorial.
    So we ask you, STOP encouraging this behavior. Or some poor guy will have his warranty voided because of you.

    @JIMBOOOOOOOOOOOO
    all i got from supporters (if thats what you call yourself W)
    C'mon man, WE ROCK, Just because we did not teach you on how to use unauthorized software (which no name company will tell you to), we are no longer good support?
    Chip on your shoulder?

  • JIMBOOOOOOOOOOOOJIMBOOOOOOOOOOOO Posts: 40WeTek Community Member
    My apologies
  • chibrichishchibrichish Posts: 3WeTek Community Member
    So, is there a CWM Recovery for the HUB?

    Like I said, I only want to take a backup of the data partition to clone to another device?

    This is all about Risk Assessment on WeTek's part - meaning how many Clueless newbie's are going to get themselves into trouble with TWRP, CWM or USB Flashing Tools.

    Why would any company provide such tools which then possibly results in an extra support burden and can result with upset end users that complain loudly and bitterly on their own help forums - ones that no longer have a warranty ?

    Such Hacking tools and discussion belongs on the Freaktab or XDA Websites along with all other such Android hacking.

    Junior Hey... ha ha good one ;)

    You really have N.F.I.

    Do you think for one moment I would be posting up any Play2 - Partition compatible TWRP .img after multiple warnings by WeTek themselves not to Post such tools on their Public forum ?

    BTW. did you notice I never directed post #11 above at you at all yet you seem to take that posting as some sort of personal attack. You are actually the one adding fuel to the fire...
