#1
(This post was last modified: 10-16-2017, 04:00 PM by X3non. )

If you're unable to flash Clockworkmod 5 to your MTK Android phone (e.g Tecno, Gionee, Infinix, Opsson, Innjoo, Lead1, TLC etc) for whatever reason then here's a guide on how to manually flash it.

# See the video tutorial below or @ http://youtu.be/4stHr2N7dVg





Update

  • You can upgrade your Clockworkmod recovery 5 to Clockworkmod recovery 6 using the guide @ //forum.hovatek.com/thread-182.html
  • You can port TWRP recovery to your phone using the guide @ https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-5162.html

Requirements


* Note that the procedure is the same for MTK based Android phones.
Note

Steps to automatically create and flash Clockworkmod (CWM) recovery to a Mediatek (MTK) phone


  1. Enable USB debugging on a working phone (Settings > Developer > Tick USB Debugging. If no Developer under Settings then go to Settings > About > Keep tapping Build Number till Developer appears under Settings ) and connect it to the PC
  2. With the phone connected, install PdaNet (Select Other from the list ; you should see "Drivers Successfully Installed" at the end of installation) .
  3. Launch MTK Droid tools
  4. MTK Droid tools should display the phone's details by the left
  5.  If it doesn't detect the phone then boot the phone into factory mode (volume decrease + power button)
  6. The box at the bottom should be yellow
  7. Click Root at the bottom of MTK and select Yes if prompted on PC and Grant on phone
  8. A green bar should load and the yellow box should become green
  9. Click on the root,backup,recovery tab at the top
  10. Click Backup and wait for the backup process  to be complete
  11. When prompted to pack backup, select No.
  12. When backup is complete, tick 'To select boot.img' (if you don't have the boot.img file then tick 'To select Boot from phone' )
  13. Click Recovery and Boot
  14. If a Window pops up, select the boot file from the MTK backup you just made (MTK folder > Backups > Phone backup)
  15. Click Yes to every prompt you get
  16. When promoted to boot into recovery mode, click Yes
  17. The phone should now boot into clockworkmod recovery mode
  18. Ensure to make a CWM Backup of the phone (See  https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-472.html )

PdaNet can be used for tethering, but here, it helps install MTK drivers on your PC. Don't understand your second question

since you're backing up before flashing Clockworkmod to the phone, the recovery.img you'll have will be stock recovery. if you backup again after flashing Clockworkmod recovery to the phone, the recovery.img you'll have will be a Clockworkmod recovery image
