    Clockwork Recovery Mod Update Does Not Stick

    Hi all,

    It seems that updating the recovery via the update.zip placed in my SD cards root by Rom Manager, does not actually flash anything. And thus, the update will not stick if you use the hardware buttons to boot into recovery.

    So how does one actually flash the recovery partition, and hence, update the clockwork recovery mod, without destroying any data on the phone (which I assume is safely in other partitions)?

    HTC ONE V. I could have sworn I filled that in somewhere. Anyway, I can reboot into the latest recovery using ROM manager (it probably uses that zip it downloaded to my SD card). But it obviously has not written to the recovery flash partition.

    What I do is:

    1) Have ROM manager download the latest Clockwork Recovery version (v5.8.4.5 in my case)
    2) Boot into recovery (v5.8.3.1) and then try to flash the zip left in the root directory by ROM manager. This works: I get to see v5.8.4.5 after the "flash". So, just to be very clear, I do _not_ use Rom Manager to flash (the free version can't even do that I think). I only use to download the latest Clockwork Recovery version.
    3) Reboot the phone

    This gives me version 5.8.4.5 as long as I reboot into recovery using Rom Manager and leave the downloaded ZIP alone (there is also one in a Rom manager directory on the SD card, apart from the one that is also in the root of the SD card - I can probably delete the one in the root of the SD card...). However, using the hardware buttons brings me back to v5.8.3.1, which is to be expected as the flash partition containing the recovery software has not been written to.

    So, "flashing" that zip appears to be quite useless apart from being able to go to the latest version via the hardware buttons approach (in the event my phone no longer boots).
    I think what I'm doing now, is the equivalent of "booting from CD-ROM" or "booting from USB-stick". I want to truly permanently flash to v5.8.4.5.



    Just a a side note, I used an all in 1 tool to root (By Hasoon), and that tool actually flashed Clockwork Recovery.


    I hope my steps are a clear? Do ask if I messed up my explanation:-)

    thanks
