In this tutorial you will learn how to make your own CWM and flash it to your phone. A cubot GT-99 is used in this tutorial and a video on this will follow soon.


Source : XDA-Developers


Things needed:


A rooted mtk65xx phone


mtk65xx Drivers


MtkDroidTools (latest preferred)


Original Rom


MTK MobileUncle Tools app (PlayStore)


The downloads can be found in the "phone tutorial section"


REMEMBER THAT FLASHING YOUR PHONE ALWAYS HAS RISKS AND I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYTHING THAT MAY HAPPEN TO YOUR DEVICE.


1) first you will need to extract the boot.img from the stock rom of your phone.





If you dont have a stock rom , make a backup of your own stock rom like shown in the phone tutorial section.


2)Next, connect the phone with USB DEBUGGING ON to your PC. Open MTKDroid tools.


The program will recognize your device and it should list your device details. In case it doesn’t, open the ADB terminal in the program and write "adb devices" without the caps. If PC doesn't recognize any device, then you need to install the mtk drivers.








3) Open the root, backup, recovery tab and click on "To choose the boot.img file". Leave all the rest as they are. Then click on Recovery and Boot and select the boot.img we got earlier from the phone's Stock Rom.





4)A prompt will appear and there choose YES. A few seconds later, you will see task complete. Go back to the MTKdroidTools folder and you will see a new folder called recovery. Inside, you have two files. Take the one with the word recovery and place it in the root of your phone’s SD card (not in any folder).


From here on we work with the phone.


Open MobileUncle Tools and go to the Recovery Update. You should see the recovery you placed in your SD card. Select it and click on OK. Finally, choose reboot to Recovery. If all was done correctly, your phone should boot into your new cwm recovery.





You can now backup your stock rom and flash custom roms, patches, kernels and others without fear of bricking!!


I have done this procedure successfully on my Cubot gt99.
