  STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE

Important Note: Backup important files stored on internal SD card of your device, so that in case a situation arises requiring you to do a factory reset after flashing CWM Recovery, which might delete internal sd card too, your files will remain safe on PC.

  1. Extract/Unzip the Fastboot zip file into a folder, you will get the following files:
    • adb.exe
    • AdbWinApi.dll
    • AdbWinUsbApi.dll
    • fastboot.exe
  2. Similary extract the recovery file into the same folder (Step 1), you will get one file:
    • recovery.img
  3. Boot into fastboot mode to flash the recovery (recovery.img). For this:
    • Power off your device and wait for 5-10 seconds until the device is fully switched off.
    • Press Power + Volume Down buttons together to enter the fastboot mode.
  4. After entering the fastboot mode connect the Phone to the PC using an USB cable.
  5. Now navigate to where you have extracted the fastboot files and hold SHIFT key on your keyboard and RIGHT CLICK and select “Open command window here” (as shown in the below image).
    Open-command-window-inside-any-folder
  6. Now flash the recovery.img from the command prompt. Type/Paste the below command inside the command prompt:
    fastboot flash recovery recovery.img

    Do not exit the command prompt yet.

  7. After you have flashed the recovery.img, reboot your device from fastboot directly by typing/pasting the below command inside the same command prompt: fastboot reboot. Now your device will reboot.
    fastboot reboot

    Now your device will reboot.

  8. Now you can boot into recovery mode. If you’re rooted, the easiest way to boot into recovery mode would be using the QuickBoot app. If not rooted, then follow the instructions below:
    • Power off your device and wait for 5-10 seconds until the device is fully switched off.
    • Press Power + Volume Up buttons together to enter the recovery.
      └ In Recovery mode, use Volume buttons to navigate Up and Down between options and use Power button to select an option.
