I have CWM already installed on my Android device. To upgrade my CWM version, do I simply boot into fastboot and cd the new .iso over to my device? Is it realy that simple?

EDIT -- The new file that I have is an .iso not a .zip so when I boot into CWM it doesn't see the .iso.

2nd Edit --- I used this command when booted into fastboot to flash my recovery

fastboot flash recovery recovery-clockwork-

It's even easier than that. Just flash the new recovery from CWM as you would any other flashable zip.

  • Then that can't be a cwm recivery. What's the full file name?

  • Seems like you have HTC. Yes you should be able to do it this way also but you might also be able find a zip of the CWM recovery for your olympus and flash that directly from CWM. So you have 2 options.

Just flash the recovery like you flashed it before, simple as that.
