Carliv Recovery for the THL T6S

I was a bit worried with the cwm recovery that I had created a few days ago. Its because the recovery is a cwm v5+. As far as I know, kitkat doesnt work with v5+. I need  cwm v6+.

And I stumble to Carliv's thread on the XDA (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2759981). So, I did as the instructions there and walla.. a cwm 6+ recovery. You can grab it here.

As you can see, it's still upside down.. :). Well, does it work? Creating backup - yes. Restoring a backup - not tested yet.

To finish off, some shots of the 2 touch (good enough for a 4 yrs old) ips screen.

Good night.


  1. Did you root it? Custom recovery should require rooting, but I am having some bad time rooting mine, tried VROOT from THL webpage (http://www.thlmobilestore.com/news/thl-mobile-phone-root-method/) and it says it worked, but apps are unable to request permissions. There is an app now called vRoot on the phone, if I understand correctly it an alternative for SuperSU or Superuser, and it does not work for me :(

    Also how did You flash the recovery, using ADB or some special FlashTool?

  2. I will create a tutorial tonight on how to root the THL T6S. No worries.

    Και με Έλληνες αναγνώστες μου, μπορείτε να ξεριζώσουμε αυτό το τηλέφωνο από τον εαυτό σας. Δεν χρειάζεται να πληρώσετε για να ξεριζώσουμε το τηλέφωνο.

    1. Thank You in advance, will be waiting for it :)

      As I understand, root is not needed to flash recovery, however, THL phones do not have regular revocery partition and simply Fastboot'ing the *.img doesn't work. After some googling I found SP Flash Tools (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=49632244) so I tried to flash your recovery with it, but SP Flash Tools application doesn't react to my phone connected via usb while powered off, same goes for powered on, so I guess SP Flash Tools won't work here... However adb and fastboot work fine, only the fastboot flash recovery doesn't work, so I am waiting in anticipation for promised post :)
