There's a "file integrity check" involved with the flash process, to prevent broken/tampered files from being flashed. Basically, you've got 3 options: Get the .md5 file that should go along the .zip generate the .md5 yourself (if you cannot find it, and are sure your .zip is fine) Turning off verification in TWRP. Btw: There was a discussion at ...

I just ran into this issue and my fix was flashing TWRP and using their partition file system correction tools. I used rashr to replace CWM recovery with TWRP and after the fixes from TWRP, I was able to flash ROMs again.

Which phone brand and model? Search in the internet for the firmware. If it is a samsung you can use software ODIN and reinstall stock-firmware. Press and hold Volume Down, Home and Power buttons, all at the same time, this will give you download mode.

You can't protect your recovery with a password. It's useless because if someone has physical access to your phone, he could just boot into download/bootloader/fastboot mode and flash a custom recovery to bypass any security on your phone. This is also the reason why no recovery offers password protection.

If your screen is blank I don't think is in fastboot. Which device do you have? Make sure you have the proper drivers intalled.

To put it simply, it is not designed for users to "boot from Memory card" as you put it. It is an embedded device and is designed as such. Android devices are typically not meant for the end user to install software via external media. They are specifically designed for additional software (not new OSes) to be loaded via some network connection. The ...

Use Volume Up + Power to get into Recovery mode. From there you should be able to perform a factory reset or flash a ROM.

The easiest way would be from fastboot by issuing a 'fastboot erase userdata' command. But booting afterwards might be troublesome because you will have no filesystem on your userdata partition! It is normal that you don't see anything on your screen except the LED when booting into fastboot mode using the key combo. Just run fastboot as root on your ...

You have a very vague question, but generally speaking there are a few ways to boot into recovery mode: Most devices have a key combination that should be held down when powering on. You can find many of them on CyanogenMod's wiki. Search for your device, and if it's supported you'll usually find the instructions on the Info or Installation page. If ...

Finally I found the way: Turned it off and then connect it to computer, adb found it as recovery then i ran adb reboot recovery and then it reboots to recovery. I found that volume up and down keys are semi broken and for this reason it could not to load recovery mode.

To enter fastboot mode hold vol+ vol- AND power for about 5 seconds; then check with fastboot devices this assumes you've already installed the adb drivers from hi suite or some universal set. once you're here you can flash a custom recovery or extract the factory recovery from the firmware zip. ...

The answer for me involved a number of things, but I think one is really the key. Use the "recovery" Command, bro This uses CyanogenMod's/AOSP's recovery program to wipe the user data and disable encryption. (found in this answer on Stack Overflow) Boot into your recovery, and then from your computer run adb shell recovery --wipe_data ...

I had the same problem once. but I could access the notification drawer. and I had a battery booster installed. So , I clicked it and clicked the rating button. It went directly to Google play and find the app's page and open it. You can unfreeze it then.

If you are trying to get your phone back to the way it was when you got it, I recommend flashing an RUU instead. It reverts your recovery and bootloader too. You won't even need a custom recovery to do this. There are many RUUs available, like this one for the GSM HTC One GPE. Just make sure you download the correct package for your device and follow all ...

ClockworkMod Recovery doesn't use touch interface. If you can flash stock ROM with it.. But you may have problem getting rid of CWM after flashing the ROM. It might be possible - some ROM's do a reflash of recovery partition before every reboot. You can try letting the battery run low to the point where the system shuts down automatically.

I use the Nexus Root Toolkit for Windows by wugfresh, it will allow you to unroot and revert to stock with a button click. It also includes full instructions on any setup you need to do prior. You can find it here: http://www.wugfresh.com/nrt/. It will also allow you to choose TWRP or ClockworkMod if you wish and can help you install new ROMs too.

There is no fastboot mode on Samsung. You must use the ODIN mode, which is an alternative to fastboot. On Linux there is a client application called Heimdall which talks to phones via Odin mode. So the answer to your question is ODIN or Heimdall. ODIN is the proprietary Samsung PC application, Heimdall is multiplatform open source alternative. ...

You can either upgrade to L via TWRP itself (some reported having trouble with TWRP 2.8 and suggested trying 2.7) or revert from TWRP back to stock recovery if you want to go the OTA way (I guess that's what you're trying to do, you're not clear on that in your question). Also instead of TWRP you can try ClockworkMod recovery. edit: typo
