CWM Touch Recovery v6.0.3.6 for Redmi 1S WCDMA

CWM (ClockworkMod) recovery is a custom recovery which offers much more features compared to the original MI-Recovery 2.0.1 of Redmi 1S.

This is not my work, all credits go to @brainfog (who is user the1024 from Russion 4PDA forum).
I am just adding explanations how to test and install the CWM Touch Recovery v6.0.3.6 for Redmi 1S WCDMA by providing different ways according to user needs and an easy way to revert back to MI-Recovery.

Thanks a lot to @46995103 for giving the hint to this recovery and to @gtiu,  @punkthemonk and @philip_petev for testing and providing screenshots.

List of most important features:

  • Menu navigation: navigate up by pressing Volume Up or swiping up, navigate down by pressing Volume Down or swiping down, select a menu item by pressing Power or swiping right, go back in menu hierarchy by swiping left
  • Installation of zip files without signature verification from SD card or sideload
  • Factory reset
  • Wipe of Cache and Dalivik Cache partitions
  • Backup of Boot, Recovery, System, Data and Android Secure partitions
  • Restore of backups

Known restrictions:

  • Mounting of USB and Internal Memory not working
  • Charging not working
  • Using CWM zip files can not be installed from internal memory
  • The Internal Memory is affected by the features Wipe Data, Backup and Restore because on Redmi 1S the Internal Memory is integrated within the Data partition (/data/media/0)

Caution:

This is a safe process, but I am not responsible for anything bad that happens to your phone

Below you find 4 step-by-step guides:
1. [for testing purposes] Temporary boot into CWM recovery using PC and fastboot
2. Permanent installation of CWM recovery using PC and fastboot
3. Permanent installation of CWM recovery using Mi-recovery
4. [if necessary] Installation of Stock MI-Recovery 2.0.1

In case any step is unclear, needs refinement or you are encountering issues please reply to this thread.

1. Temporary boot into CWM recovery from PC via fastboot for testing purposes

OnePlus One is available now !!!

fgfg_6_1

Thousands of fans are still awaiting a OnePlus One invitation, but there is another way to buy the 2014 flagship killer! One of the most trustworthy online resellers in China, Antelife has the 64GB 3GB White model in stock.

fgfg_5__6_1

Antelife are based in China with a very good proven track record and have actually shown me physical proof they have had the OnePlus One in stock (although by the time many of you read this I guess those stock to have been depleted).

Important: before buying the OnePlus One from China

The OnePlus One phones in China are sold in batches through JD.com without invitation. This is a proven method for China and one which Huawei and Xiaomi have been using for years with success, it also means that there are many more OnePlus Ones in China than there are elsewhere.

Before ordering the OnePlus One from China you will want to weigh up the pros and cons:

Pros

  • You don’t need an invitation.
  • The phone will be in your hands quicker than the international model
  • You will be the envy of your friends

Cons

  • The prices will likely be higher than the official retail price
  • The Chinese version of the OPO comes with ColorOS NOT CyanogenMod 11S, however you will be able to install CM.
  • You might have issues with warranty turn around time.
  • So keep these points in mind before ordering.

Head over to antelife.com, and order your brand new OnePlus One flagship today

CyanogenMod RedMi WCDMA BETA

cyanogenmod-10.2

This is real CM10.2 for our Xiaomi Hongmi (this is not a themed to look like CyanogenMod ROM). This is the real deal, based on Android 4.3.1, from an unofficial ported ROM, so there are bugs, like back and settings button don’t work, only home button does.

I have tried it for a few days, and have to say I am really impressed. Seeing that there is already a CM11 ROM in the making for a MT6589 mobile, I am sure that this CM beta will have it’s bugs squashed in no time.

But, for now, download and enjoy a bit of cyanogenmod on our RedMi.

Known bugs: One SIM card only (3G), Camera not working, Bluetooth not working, Mobile Assistant bug

Working:               WiFi/ Data and sensors, all sounds and CM themes. ROOT privileges, Sony Honami Keyboard, the system is very smooth and small memory
