clockworkmod - Fastboot is getting stuck while trying to flash CWM onto Nexus 4

  • juffel

    After successfully unlocking the bootloader of my new Nexus 4 using adb and fastboot I now want to install ClockworkMod Recovery onto my device. Sadly it is not working properly. I am using Gnome Ubuntu 13.04 and installed adb and fastboot with apt. While in fastboot mode my device is visible when testing with

    $ sudo fastboot devices
    002847af108bXXXX    fastboot

    when I try to flash the ClockworkMod image recovery-clockwork- using

    $ sudo fastboot flash recovery recovery-clockwork-
    sending 'recovery' (7814 KB)...

    it gets stuck. I already waited for 40 minutes to complete but since the size of the image is around 8Mb I suppose it cannot take that much time and something is not working correctly. Strangely also my USB-connected keyboard and Bluetooth-connected mouse are ignoring my inputs while fastboot is running.

    I also tried renaming the .img file to recovery.img with the same result. Perhaps I am missing something obvious, but I have no idea what the problem could be.

    clockworkmod - Can't boot to Clockwork Recovery on Atrix (several methods tried)
  • jacobcase94

    I have a Motorola Atrix 4G, with AT&T Carrier. Android 2.3.4

    EDIT 11/6/2011: I don't know if this means anything, but I don' have an sdcard in it.

    I have rooted it using this tutorial.

    I installed Rom Manager and installed the Clockwork Recovery Image, with success (supposedly).

    Here are where the problems occur. When I turn off the phone and turn it back on, while holding the volume down button, I get the big red M and scroll down to "Android Recovery" and select that. I then get "Failed to boot 2".

    Ok, so I reboot and go back to my stock rom and try reinstalling the rom, and it down nothing to change the situation.

    Next, I try running the fastboot software in the command window on my pc using the command "fastboot flash recovery recovery.img" (recovery.img is the clockwork mod). On my phone it says "Flashing Partition Recovery" then "Flashing MBR to device" and finally "Failed to process command flash:recovery error(0x180002)".

    Any suggestions? I did google the problem, but the answers I have found didn't apply or didn't work.

    Please help, Thanks.
