[Quick Tip] Update Official ClockworkMod Touch Recovery on HTC One X

clockwork mod logoIn the article where we showed you how you can unlock your HTC One X bootloader and install ClockworkMod recovery to root the phone, the recovery we installed was an interim recovery. The interim version of ClockworkMod (CWM) recovery had many limitations, like one could not mount the internal SD card using the mount and storage option, and also the phone’s battery could not be charged.

These two limitations can be a problem when you are stuck in a boot loop when something goes wrong on your device. So today we are going to see how you can flash the latest official recovery which fixes these problems. Before we proceed make sure your phone is unlocked and you have the interim CWM recovery running as the device’s default recovery. Also you must have the HTC drivers installed on your computer.

Note: We at Guiding Tech will not be responsible if your phone is damaged in the process. But as we have created an auto-installer script, the process should be smooth enough.

All you need to do is download the latest CMW and flash it to your phone from the downloader. Generally, you would have to write down commands in Command Prompt to flash the file. But, good thing for you that you are our reader and all you need to do is download the archived files of the script on your computer, extract them to a folder in your computer and run the GT_RecoveryUpdateScript.bat file. Make sure your phone is in bootloader mode and connected to your computer via USB.

After the success message you can reboot into recovery to check. If it shows version 5.8.4.0 at the bottom, the flashing was done successfully.

You can now charge your mobile in recovery and mount the internal storage space directly to transfer files.  If you are on a custom ROM, you might have to flash the ROMs Boot.img file again. Sometimes the phone reboots in recovery all the time.
