Plenty of guides out there for ROMS. But how do I get just the ClockworkMod bootloader onto the phone that is required before all this for the various ROMS?
power+vol up&down + X
and I'm given a Bootloader 0.0A
I then have RSDLite ready, but all .sbf files are full roms. I already have CM9 on the phone but somehow there is no CWM recovery mode so I only need to load on the bootloader.
edit: the buttons to press are always R+M+Power for boot right?
Would be nice to show how flashing with .sbf links to the next stage putting a ROM on and have it as a sticky.
As far as I know:
1) Hold vol up and down keys and hold power on key to turn on phone and get boot loader (not pwr+x like it says at CWM website -wtf?)
2) flash .sbf file
3) Check it boots. Probably doesn't.
4) Boot into recovery mode (hold R + M + Power button until triangle, then press the @ key). Clear all the cache(s)
5) flash a update.zip file you already have stored on the sdcard. There's no internal sdcard so at least this is easier.
Previously I got stuck at stage (5) because the bootloader needs a signed update file. So, I either have to find a signed .zip or find a .sbf file with an unlocked boot loader.
Tips please. This info all really needs to be in a sticky so people know the order of things. Otherwise you just see the .zip file and think wtf?
