[CWM] Clockworkmod Recovery (Touch Based) for the Huawei Mercury m886/c8860
[Image: Ambox_speedy_deletion.png] DISCLAIMER: This has been tested and is fully working, but install at your own risk! I am not responsible if you break your phone!!!!


I finally broke down n ported CWM for the Mercury myself since whom ever did the currently used cwm hasnt pushed to github n submitted it to koush.. This is built from the ics branch aka the base for the CWM Touch, meaning once submitted n officially built by koush CWM Touch should be available for those who choose the pay the $1 for it and have ROM Manager support.  Androidwink

Installation Instructions
  • Download CWM 5 recovery.img
  • Turn the phone off, then turn it on while holding vol.up + vol down.
  • The screen becomes pink, connect the phone to your PC via usb cable, usb drive will be mounted
  • Find file recovery.img, place it somewhere safe. Copy downloaded recovery image to where the old one was, and unplug usb cable.
  • Turn off your phone (pull out battery) and turn it on holding volume up.

People to Thank
  • koush - for his kickass recovery.
  • jonhaney - for the instructions.
  • Romeo5k - for testing.

Thank you sir.  You are truly a gentleman and a scholar... or at the very least, you're a kick-ass developer who is very generous with his time!

Thank you PlayfulGod, jonhaney, koush, and Romeo5k!

Do you have to be rooted??
I installed your recovery, but when I boot into it all I get is the first menu screen.  Nothing else works. Every menu I select gives me a blank screen only the background shows.  If i push the power button again it brings me back to the first screen.  "reboot system now" doesn't even work.

Ian

If I wait aprox 2-3 min then it will say "back button enabled" , then it seems to work ok

Touch doesn't work on mine.  I can scroll with the vol buttons and after a while it would open the other menus and I was able to root my mercury. 
But touch didn't work and it took a while before it would operate properly.

I did do the latest OTA update.

Can't wait till we get some good roms.  But for now the phone works great.  Just needed root for screen shots and airdriod.

Thanks

would yall learn to read, it says touched based, not that its touch, which means when the bugs are worked out n officially built by koush touch will be available, just as it says in the OP. Androidwink
