    • Actually Step 6 should be like this (to avoid confusion) : Select and run the to open up ClockworkMod settings.
      and the rest are as written above.

  • Hi, I only see the following : (a) reboot system now (b) apply update from external storage (c) wipe data/ factory reset (d) wipe cache partition and (e) apply update from cache

    I don’t see “choose zip from sdcard” option from the menu. Am I missing something ?

    I downloaded both programs from the links given or do I have an old version of ClockworkMod custom recovery ?

    Which one should I choose ?

    Thanks !
