How to use ClockworkMod recovery for flash, backup, restore and more - video tutorial

Hi friends, today I present Clockwork Mod recovery, the recovery menu used on Android, specifically Clockwork Mod recovery is used to flash ROMs uirea after market and beyond.
Those who own an Android and want to flash custom ROMs or uiasca different addons have to use another than the default recovery, normally with the original recovery is not much we can do, we can only flash-ui a rom / kernel can reset original or your device, we can not backup can not restore, we can not mount or unmount the card to be able to access the PC (sometimes possible).
For greater freedom on our Android phone must use a more complex recovery, Clockwork Mod Recovery is the best choice. CWM provides a lot of options, is easy to use and most importantly is a mature recovery, stability is mandatory when it comes to flash, the flash is not playing.
In this tutorial I tried to get acquainted with Clockwork Mod recovery, I tried to explain better how things stand, I hope that from now on not to be scared when it comes to recovery.
What we do with Clockwork Mod ??
Installing custom ROMs.
Install updates.
Data factory reset
Delete cache partition
Erasing Dalvik cache
backup general
Restore general
selective Restore
Fix permision
battery recalibration
Installation sd card for PC
Mntare partitions
Format SD Card
Sd card partitioning
Cancellation requiring signatures (toggle)
These are just some of the functions Clockwork Mod recovery has available.
Clockwork Mod recovery can and gets along well with Rom Manager (the market), we can initialize a lot of the above functions even with the help of Android Rom Manager.
Recovery menu is accessed either RomManager (requires restart) or to switch the phone through a combination of keys (eg volume down + power) for different phones are different combinations to access the menu recovery.
If your phone is rooted, you can install Clockwork Mod Recovery using Rom Manager the market, prompted an administrator (root) must grant them these rights if you want a functional application.

CAREFUL:
These operations can permanently damage your device, all you do is your own responsibility, videotutorial.ro does not assume responsibility for any damages that may arise.
Be careful, measured two / three times and cut once, with flash not play.

    Yes, clockworkmod has nothing to do with the version of Android installed, it is a part of the ROM that "leaves" and is read before the operating system.
    It's like you change the BIOS to a PC (Windows or matters that the operating system of the PC when you want to do BIOS update? Of course not! So here)

  10. ok… thanks a lot… I forgot to mention above, but I asked because I recently had a custom rom installed which was based on 2.3 and I had another recovery. I tried to install clockworkmod and I bricked it (no that would be a problem)… but I have a configuration and I don't want to lose it… anyway..thanks!

    Sorin Sorry, my response was to TomaDanila
    For you, the answer is: No, Android System Recovery is limited, with it you can do is to bring the phone to the state it was when you first start. That will erase everything and will stay with him "bald" as it was when you bought it.
    Now depends on phone model .... This field is very vast and you really use your phone

  18. Hello Cristi,

    My name is Claudius. It's the first time I came on this site. Sincere congratulations for the work you and your colleagues for creating and maintaining this site. I've already formed a positive opinion about you and not only say that I appreciate the effort and workload.
    Well done guys, keep up the good work!

    And now that I'm done with the assessments;), I wrote directly to you, because I noticed (indirectly) from the tutorial that you own, or used an HD2 and that you had some libraries saved on GPS… NMEA.

    I have a HD2 which currently has Windows Mobile 6.5 and looking for something to make them a back up existing ROM (stock rom windows + some customization of language) and then he put Android 4 (are less familiar with CWM and flashes on XDA).

    Think you can help me with some information. If you can leave me your contact on my e-mail ([email protected]) Would be great.

    Regarding the NMEA (btw, I am an surveyour) sought to address the device's connection to ROMPOS and getting real-time DGPS corrections.

    Thank you for your response and look forward to hearing from you.

  19. I have a problem: ClockworkMod Recovery I do not go completely wrong. They want to get the phone in recovery mode I do not appear at all the ClockworkMod but to the android system. I tried to flash the ROM Manager and uiesc and by using an image and terminal version (this version is found on XDA). mention that I have a SGS2. Thank you! and who would have an idea about this problem and we solve it please answer me. Thank you!

    • hi, if you solved the problem with galaxy tab p1000 to me telling me how I happened to me the same lucru.multumesc

  22. Sal. I have a galaxy nexus and after flash CWM recovery and give uiesc restart sometimes I get into the android recovery and even if I go into CWM recovery first time the second time if you do not flash uiesc again and I get into the of Android. Sometimes it gives me error and sometimes uire flash in CWM Recovery if you select an option does nothing and I menu disappears, and if you press my power button appears once again. And I wanna know if a ROM (android 4.0.4) can only handle 28MB that seems weird. ROM I found on XDA developers say it's original and only has busybox unlocked. Is it normal? What can I do? A and when it asks what model is to flash CWM recovery (GSM, Sprint or Verizon) choose Verizon although I'm not sure, but whatever I select all it is! This is the ROM: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1481613

    • Adrian Gudus said

      What business do you have with Verizon? Verizon is a mobile network in the United States. You must choose GSM
      If it did not matter the version, there was the 3 versions (Verizon, Sprint GSM) Do not make sense?
      Those who have purchased from Verizon smartphone will download the version for Verizon, those who bought from Sprint Sprint version will download and you, that you purchased the download version GSM Romania, this is the version for those who took the free smartphone or free network

  44. Hello
    I have a HTC Desire 606W dual sim.
    From time to time I see this starting ClockworkMod Recovery V.6.0.3.1 after the phone starts after about 20 / 30 seconds restarts. Continue so-on / off until the battery end. I do not know how I managed to make it work but realize that something must be done.
    Tips?
    Thank you

    • I had a similar problem. The phone boots in CWM only. Even if I gave him a restart in boot recovery. Even if I turned it off at the start, it still did. I solved the problem by reflashing CWM with Odin (flash tool for samsung devices) because I have a samsung device. For HTC I don't know what the flash tool is or if there is such a tool. If you want to go back to the stock rom look for "your phone name back to stock rom" or you can try to search for "your phone name CWM recovery loop" to see if you find any solution to the problem with the restart in recovery in case mai apre. I can't help you with anything else because I don't own your phone model. If you still have any questions you can post and we will try to help you.

    Hello guys
    and I ask you to make backup android rom manager must be installed with super su;
    If you install super su root mean that your e -at?
    and if it be so after you make backup and return to factory settings so root remains at all?
    I want to do the full backup Systeme not only to apps and contacts

    • To use Rom Manager you need root. If you install the Play Store Super SU does not mean that the phone is root-enter it. Super SU is just an application that granting rights to applications that require root. To do root your phone depending find tutorial on XDA Developers or here on the site. To do a full backup (Nandroid backup) the easiest and safest method is a custom recovery. If you return to factory default root will not go away. There unroot option in Super SU but the safest way to get rid of the root is the flash ROM uirea stock.

      • Costelina said

        Thanks Alex
        please explain me in more detail (admit are novice when it comes to android phone, I actually broke a samsung)
        I want only backup (in case the phone while moving a heavy)

        • If you want to achieve the purpose for which the backup is only to be there in case of mobile phone begins to move badly. Something like system restore on Windows. You give calm a return to factory settings. Google allows you to keep a backup in the cloud, and after a return to factory settings to restore. But if the reason you returned to factory setting is that the phone is moving slow backup will not help you because you will restore applications and so if an application makes your head making you go wrong restoration backup will return and so she did not have anything.

          • Costelina said

            Alex phone is new; I said do backup before you start to install applications
            (As I learn and I with Android phone)
            I do not want backups to cloud applications not give them in there as I install them again
            I want a backup Systeme Android
            I always taught us not backup; backup; backup before all?
            and all applications that I will root interested before making backup
            and if the root acquis remains how to make the service can lead Harbor disaster
            it has 24 months warranty

          • I think I understand. So you want to make a backup to restore it in case something happens to your phone. Something like Keriver backup made for windows. Adrian has done in the past a tutorial about how we perform a backup using the Android operating system your PC without root. You can find it here: https://videotutorial.ro/backup-de-pe-pc-pentru-dispozitivele-android-fara-root-si-fara-recovery-tutorial-video/
            But many users complained that when they wanted to restore the backup did not work. If you call from a company best known as: Samsung, Google (Nexus), LG etc. ii ui can easily flash stock ROM in case of problems. Flash-ROM uirea stock not void the warranty. About how uieste flash stock ROM on LG phones, Samsung, Nexus find tutorials here on the site. It would help if you tell us your phone model,
