Recovery mode missing can't flash it
Hi I've got a Chinese phone Pomp W89 and I wanted to put a custom rom on it, I tried to install cwm and twrp but I've found out they don't support my device, so I went on needrom and found a recovery file for my phone which I downloaded and used rom manager to flash.
But I've then worked out the file was corrupted and since then I can't get into recovery mode the phone just showed a brief white screen then boots up normally, it does say recovery mode at the bottom but never goes into it, I then found a complete recovery file for my phone and flashed that but the same thing happens without the brief white screen just a black one then it boots up normally.
I've tried cwm to flash and several other programs and I also then tried the terminal emulator to flash which I think was successful but the exact same thing happens, I just don't understand if the new recovery.img has been flashed why would nothing change? There was already a recovery.img on the phone which I kept a copy of and that makes no difference either.
I was going to flash using my computer but I have windows 8 and can't get the usb drivers to install for the phone.
Re: Recovery mode missing can't flash it
I'm going to guess that although the Recovery file seems to be the right one, it's not. Something is preventing the install and if its definitely the recovery you need it may need to be flashed via computer, so you'll need to try and get on another computer to manually push and flash the recovery.
