  2. Installing zip
  3. ADB
  4. All partitions are mounted
  5. Internal SD Card fully working!

About SD-EXT support
I added support for sd-ext partition. For now only ext3 partition works. To use compatible with my recovery sd-ext parition I reccomend to partition sd card usung Advanced>Partition SD Card in my recovery. All data will be deleted! After this paritioning sd-ext works with my recovery and Link2SD. If you partition SD Card in recovery don’t try to create swap partition, because we haven’t got support for swap.


  1. Support for Jellybean and other roms

  1. Stable SD-EXT (ext3) support
  2. Fixed ADB, now working correctly
  3. Changed some text to make installer cleaner

  1. Changes only to test version
  2. SD-EXT support, but it is still in testing. See Notes above changelog, because sd-ext don’t work in 100% (you must partition sd card with recovery)

  1. All bugs fixed
  2. Can’t still mount Internal and External SD because can’t mount in recovery through MTP, please copy files through adb or use this app to copy: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show….php?t=1057059)

  1. Fixed Internal SD
  2. Some texts in apk changed

Q: What is CWM?
A: Here it is: http://forum.xda-developers.com/wiki…rkMod_Recovery

Q: When I do Backup in CWM and check backup folder size i see size about 20 mb, my backup should be about 1 GB?
A: Don’t worry. CWM since 6 version use diffrent backup format. CWM don’t store everything in backup directory, It uses diffrent directories and backup structute. Everything is OK!

Q: I installed CWM and it don’t boot.
A: Check if You propely installed this CWM, nad check if you propely boot to recovery. Maybe you tried to install other recovery? If It still doesn’t work reflash firmware with KDZ (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show….php?t=2085344), and try to install on clean, rooted rom.
