    I haven't seen too many people using cwm, what guide did you follow?

    I would suggest installing twrp recovery and flash harmonia to get you back and going (check out phandroid or vmroms)

    These phones are pretty much unbrickable

    i followed the only one i could find but used the cwm instead of the teamwin recovery one that was offered. how would i go about doing the twrp recovery and flashing harmonia what method should i use? i dont have a custom rom installed or anything but if thats the only way to fix it which would be the yes, itd have to be one i could apply through my phone not the computer

    Adb through fast boot to install recovery, then wipe everything and flash harmonia or a stock ROM....anything other than stock will most likely require a downgrade in h boot which requires s off


    Go to phandroid forums or vmrom forums there are a lot of knowledgeable people in those forums

    it worked before but now it wont connect for some reason. i cant actually turn the phone all the way on or anything you think i might could flash a new recovery and rom through the cwm recovery i have now? or do you have any idea how to fix the md5 mismatch error

    From power off
    Power + vol down
    Click fast boot
    Connect to PC should say fast boot USB

    Or you can try and put a ROM.zip on your SD then flash through cwm

    I have not used cwm on this phone

    Yes but you need to pay attention to hboot requirements, ROMs like cm10 and from sprint 3d usually require hboots lower than 1.5........you most likely have 1.57.......i believe mobster works with your boot, there is a lite version that has the look of cm10.....again goto phandroid forums, it has the most friendly and active forum I've found for this phone

    If you flash a ROM not compatible with your hboot you will likely boot loop..... as always make backups and you shouldn't have too many headaches
