GUIDE: CLOCKWORKMOD RECOVERY INSTALLATION ON XOLO A500S IPS
Before you begin with guide instructions below, make sure your android device is adequately charged — at least 50% battery of the device.
STEP 0: CHECK DEVICE MODEL NO.
To make sure your device is eligible with this, you must first confirm its model no. in ‘About device’ option under Settings. Another way to confirm model no. is by looking for it on the packaging box of your device. It must be A500S!
Please know that this page is meant only for Xolo A500S IPS. Please DO NOT try the procedures given here on any other device of Xolo or any other company. You have been Warned!
STEP 1: BACKUP YOUR DEVICE
Back up important data and stuff before you start playing around here as there are chances you might lose your apps and app-data (app settings, game progress, etc.), and in rare case, files on the internal memory, too.
For help on Backup and Restore, check out our exclusive page on that linked right below.
STEP 2: ROOT YOUR DEVICE
The recovery flashing method given below, uses the Mobile Uncle (MTK) Tools android app, which needs root access on your device.
So make sure you phone is rooted before proceeding with the Clockworkmod Recovery installation discussed in the guide.
STEP 3: INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
