you don't know how to fix it yourself?
This page is for reporting problems-- maybe it's a bad installation instruction or something wrong with the build walkthroughs.
Of course, since this is a wiki, you can try to fix the page yourself.
Note: Fixing Individual Device Settings VS. Fixing Wiki-Wide Templates
- If the problem is with information regarding a device such as the info page, the install instructions, or the build page, try editing the device template for that page, linked at the bottom of every device info page. Modifying these settings will only affect the device in question, although may affect several pages relating to that device.
- If the problem relates to ALL the devices, you may want to look at the template that is used by the device. Modifying a template will change dozens if not hundreds of pages simultaneously for many devices, so only play with these if you know what you are doing!
If you can't fix the problem yourself, describe the problem below thoroughly and include links to where the problem is, as well as what the solution should be. Also add a --~~~~ at the end of your message to "sign" it. Hopefully someone who's able to look at the problem can fix it.
If you do fix the problem, please remove the report from this page.
- Bad example:
- I couldn't get my Nexus 7 build working!
- Good example:
- On the page Grouper_Info, I noticed there was a bad link. The kernel for the source code is actually located at http://www.github.com/cyanogenmod/android_device_asus_grouper, not http://www.github.com/cyanogenmod/baddirectory as reported on the page. --Fattire (talk) 07:38, 8 December 2012 (UTC)
Note: please leave edit time in UTC as far as possible to maintain uniformity
Report any issues you discover below
Put new issues at the top! And don't forget to add your name and a date by appending --~~~~ at the end.
The file I downloaded from Cyanogen's ClockworkMod Recovery link would not work for my Galaxy note. When I flashed it, I received a message telling me that the firmware upgrade encountered an issue. The file it downloads (recovery-clockwork-220.127.116.11-quincyatt) was 123 KB. The file I downloaded from Clockworkmod.org (recovery-clockwork-18.104.22.168-quincyatt) was 7,912 KB. --Ennuienthusiast (talk) 00:16, 10 June 2013 (UTC)
I was unable to connect with Heimdall from my Windows 7 64 bit machine. Samsung USB Composite Device was not shown in zadig. I ran zadig in XP mode (service pack 3) and was able to update the drivers and connect. --Ennuienthusiast (talk) 00:16, 10 June 2013 (UTC)
On breakfast vibrantmtd at "Prepare Device Specific code" the download of both specific configuration and kernel source fails. it seems that maybe the repository does not exist or appears in a different name. any ideas / instructions will be helpful. thx. --Benk (talk) 22:43, 9 June 2013 (UTC)
on Install CM for n7000, at item 7 it says "The device will not reboot, rather will wait for you to reboot it to give enough time to enter recovery with the button combination." It's unclear if the user is supposed to reboot it at this stage, or not. I am assuming that this means the device should be rebooted, but it doesn't specify how this is to be done. I am also assuming that during the reboot, you have to press some unspecified combination of buttons in order to enter recovery mode. Could someone please clarify this? --Anglebracket (talk) 21:09, 7 June 2013 (UTC)
On all pages where the user picks the category (nightly, milestone, RC, or stable), would it be possible to show exactly what version of Android is represented by each? --Anglebracket (talk) 20:23, 7 June 2013 (UTC)
On Install CM for hallon, it says that holding Vol Up will put the device into fastboot mode. Actually, on hallon (Xperia Neo), it is the menu button. See also http://unlockbootloader.sonymobile.com/fastboot-buttons. --Per Olofsson (talk) 18:07, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
On http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Install_CM_for_solana , on "Gaining Root with Motofail" Procedure for Windows, step 8: The exploit script on CMD (the run.bat) did not work. I was not able to create the "bug report vibration" demanded by the script at the end of the procedure. I only got the "Silent Mode, Plane Mode, Suspend and Power off" screen vibration and the exploit failed. -KMur (talk) 21:40, 4 June 2013 (UTC)
Obs.: I just succeeded at rooting. I had to download another "motofail_windows.zip" from: http://vulnfactory.org/blog/2012/02/11/rooting-the-droid-4-a-failed-bounty-experiment/ , and run it from a Windows 7 32bit (instead of the 64bit previous) computer. It worked on the third attempt. I did not need to touch the phone, all steps were automated! --KMur (talk) 02:11, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
On http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/index.php?title=Install_CM_for_p3110 , Heimdall requires the X86 version of the C++ redistributable, EVEN IF you're running an X64 system. ---Schweini (talk) 19:34, 1 June 2013 (UTC)
The link to download CM 10.1 RC3 for razr/razr maxx (cdma) is broken giving a 404 not found error. Looking forward to the new download. --amrozack
Install_CM_for_i9300 - Yesterday I followed all the process exactly step by step. All MD5 checked, all steps carefully followed. But I got a "Initialising protocol... ERROR: Protocol initialisation failed!" while flashing CWM recovery with Heimdall (I certanly don´t know why), so I gave up. Today I tried again and it worked. May be it could be necesary to reboot the phone after the installation of the custom driver and before flashing the CWM Recovery, because it´s the only difference I see from yesterday and today --Elreymon (talk) 13:22, 01 Jun 2013 (UTC)
Install CM for otter - The instructions for placing the zip file onto the device didn't work for me. "adb push" fails with "Permission denied". So I loaded the zip file using the standard USB drive interface. I put the zip file to the "kindleupdates" directory, but it could be any directory, including the root. I was able to flash it successfully. It turns out the drive seen by the host computer corresponds to the /sdcard directory as seen by the device in the recovery mode. --Pavel Roskin (talk) 21:20, 28 May 2013 (UTC)
Install_CM_for_p5110 - I have the p5113 and this may be a differnce between the two models. On step 3 the prosess to get into download mode is wrong while the device was off I had to press and hold the power and volume up buttons, then press volume down to accept that I wanted to install a custom os, and then attach the usb cable. Also step 7 does not say what the button combonation is to get into recovery, its hold volume down and power. --TheTaLlesT (talk) 16:28, 28 May 2013 (UTC)
Install_CM_for_satsuma - There is a note that the kernel will not update on 2011 models and that fastboot must be used to flash instead. A guide for flashing with fastboot would be much appreciated. --Mortenf (talk) 15:27, 28 May 2013 (UTC)

Downloaded SafeStrap Recovery, but md5 checksum did not match. Tried to install and got error "file 'Safestrap-RAZR-D4-BIO-3.11.apk' is not a valid zip file". I downloaded several times, but still didn't work. --Klavergne (talk) 03:13, 2 June 2013 (UTC)

http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/M7_Info lists the CPU as 1.7 GHz quad-core Cortex A9, while in reality it's 1.7GHz quad-core Krait 300. Krait is Qualcomm's own ARM-compatible design, not based on Cortex-anything. Also the display is called "SLCD3" or "Super-LCD 3", not "Super-LCD 2" --Kaotik (talk)
Someone added on the http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Unofficial_Ports site links to my CM-port for Acer A210 release threads on xda-developers and android-hilfe.de fora. But due to some build issues to be fixed (my build needs currently some changes outside /deices/<vendor>/<product> treepath) I did not publish the source yet. Maybe you want to remove these links until I fixed the build issues and publish the source. --U.k-f (talk) 08:34, 7 May 2013 (UTC)
On the page http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Install_CM_for_p1c it would be helpful to say that the recovery mode for this particular model is to "Simultaneously Hold Home Button, Volume Up, & the Power button, continue to hold all three until the screen flashes "Samsung", then release all buttons." --AndyCool22 at gmail dot com May 4 2013
In the page for Live with Walkman (coconut), you need to be more clear on how to use the fastboot mode, which is by turning phone off then pressing volume up while connecting to PC. Also, at that time, Windows fails to install driver for "S1Boot Fastboot", causing the fastboot utility to keep waiting for device. In order to fix this, you need to follow the instructions on the linked Sony page to download an inf file and replace the one shipped with SDK, then use that file as source for driver installation. --RenatoSilva (talk) 23:20, 1 May 2013 (UTC)

Missing step - HP touchpad With the instructions at http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Install_CM_for_tenderloin I have successfully reached step 12 of part 1 and can us MoBoot to get into WebOS or into ClockworkModRecovery. But the next section speaks of using the command "adb" to put the CM zip file on the SDcard. I can't see where the adb command is supposed to run! I checked the video version of the instructions and this isn't covered - on the video version, as soon as MoBoot is running, "Boot CMod" is one of the boot options. It isn't for me!! --Ccomley (talk) 21:41, 24 February 2013 (UTC)
- There is documentation in this wiki about adb and how to use it, but I can make that more linkable in the document I guess --Fattire (talk) 21:50, 26 February 2013 (UTC) UPDATE: It says "See adb documentation for additional help with this step". Was this not there before? If not, we can remove this wiki problem item. --Fattire (talk) 21:52, 26 February 2013 (UTC)
On the "Install CM for tenderloin" page I noticed two things that could be documented.
- After installing the novacom package and booting the TouchPad in USB mode I did not get the novacom (boootie) driver until after I had rebooted my PC.
- When running the novacom command it simply hangs if you are not running it as administrator. Start the command shell using the "Run as Administrator" option if you do normally run as administrator.

- Installation on an HP Touchpad, Installing CyanogenMod from Recovery
On Windows based system, after completed the steps Installing the ClockWorkMod Recovery using ACMEInstaller3.
There is no
sdcard folder on the Touchpad, and no sdcard can be plugged on the contrary of what is written. By default, as I understand, the
sdard folder corresponds to the root of the Touhpad.
When installing Cyanogen for the first time :
1/ Connect your Touchpad to your computer, enable the Mass Storage Mode, create a
sdccard folder at the Touchpad root.Your folder can have any name, but
sdcard is easier as the ClockWorkMod Recovery asks you for an
2/ Place the CyanogenMod rom .zip file in the
3/ Reboot the Touchpad and follow the steps 4 6 to 9 of the Installing CyanogenMod section. --vitam1970 (talk) 22:00, 23 February 2013 (UTC)
- There is a note that says Some devices do not have removable SD cards. Regardless, there should still be a partition on the device named "/sdcard" that can be used for flashing purposes, even though the contents of /sdcard may actually be in internal storage. -- This should be true for the tenderloin device just like any other. If I recall correctly, the /sdcard maps to the same virtual file system as the /media partition in WebOS. so I'm pretty sure it's there. Also, FWIW the /sdcard partition is NOT the same as the root of the touchpad, which is "/". --Fattire (talk) 21:59, 26 February 2013 (UTC)
Hint for the newbies : Google apps are not packaged with CyanogenMod9 builds. Just have a look at Goo.im to get the .zip approved by developers. Copy the archive in you
sdcard folder on your touchpad, reboot and make a ClockWorkMod update.

There's a bug in the libusb for heimdall (Windows--not sure about other platforms) that has been fixed since the version linked to here was built. (latest version from 2/1/13 available here: https://github.com/Benjamin-Dobell/Heimdall/tree/master/libusbx-1.0/lib/Win32/Release). I know it affects t-mobile S3s...not sure about others. I don't have quite enough confidence to recompile the whole thing and post it here. Also I'm not sure that even the libusb fix has completely fixed the problem--with the latest libusb, heimdall claimed to have successfully flashed the latest clockworkmod, but I was still at the previous version (although the counter incremented....odd). (further discussion at: https://github.com/libusbx/libusbx/issues/78) --Mattjm (talk) 00:20, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
- The installation instructions for the HP Touch Pad lack an important step. The
android_winusb.infincluded in the latest Google USB driver package lacks entries for this device. For me, it worked to add
%SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_0BB4&PID_0C02&REV_0227&MI_01
%CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_0BB4&PID_0C02&MI_01
after the last lines of the [Google.NTx86] and [Google.NTamd64] sections. Others reported success with
%SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_0BB4&PID_6860&REV_0227&MI_01
%CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_0BB4&PID_6860&MI_01
My Samsung Galaxy S was broken after doing all the steps at http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Install_CM_for_galaxysmtd
CM started up fine but the modem/network was not detected. I could not call anyone or receive calls/sms. I fixed it by following this great tutorial http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=22555425
So if you have a Galaxy S and have problems with your modem/finding a network, you might want to try the tutorial!

http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Install_CM_for_quincyatt The md5 for the qunicyatt version of ClockWorkMod is reported on the page as a377cc819926c910b1974b38d9143f02 however, tar.md5 file reports an md5 of f3e92c325e876ec771247e2375e53cd7 , even though the tar.md5.md5 file on the server in the same directory reports the same incorrect md5 as the one on the wiki page. --42ndfloor (talk) 16:52, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Mint_Info shows that the latest CM version is jellybean, but under CM support it lists both 10 and 10.1. Builds started on the 17th for 10.1, so the latest CM version needs to be updated (I didn't know if there is a specific variable somewhere that needs to be changed, so I figured I'd leave it to the gurus). --Bassmadrigal (talk) 12:42, 24 April 2013 (UTC)

On the page http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Install_CM_for_hercules it points users to the default build of Heimdall, which doesn't work with the SGH-T989 at this time. There is a fork of Heimdall with support for the SGH-T989 available at git://github.com/jamiejackson/Heimdall.git. Also, ClockworkMod will sometimes fail to work with a SGH-T989. It would, therefore, be helpful to note this on the instructions and provide some links to another Recovery Mod, such as TWRP: http://www.teamw.in/project/twrp2 --Hosef (talk) 03:41, 20 April 2013 (UTC)
The heimdall code example for flashing the recovery image onto a Samsung Galaxy S2 i777 is incorrect. That will flash the kernel, not the recovery image. This trashed my phone and I had to follow the instructions hereEntropy512's Original I777 UCKH7 Kernel plus Non-Rooted System Package in order to salvage my phone. For me on Mac OS X, the command line was more like "sudo ./heimdall flash --recovery recovery.img --no-reboot". Please fix this, so that I'm the last noob to hit that stumbling block. --Taltman (talk) 06:34, 19 February 2013 (UTC)
- The recovery linked is NOT a kernel, it's a fakeflash that only replaces the running recovery with cwmr at run time. It is not a permanent change to the device. The above would never work on i777 as it does not have a dedicated recovery partition and the kernel itself contains the recovery. I will try to find a zImage instead of a fakeflash. For now I have replaced the instructions to make it more clear. --Utkanos (talk) 05:27, 20 February 2013 (UTC)
The build instructions for Motorola Xoom everest Build_for_everest#Extract_proprietary_blobs refers to a folder that does not exist and a script that does not appear to exist either.
- changed device_vendor to moto -- White 18:04 20 Jan 2013 (UTC)
- The missing script, if it's not there yet, needs to be added by the device maintainer (or by someone else). Every supported CM device should have it. --Fattire (talk) 20:27, 27 January 2013 (UTC)
- this is not really a wiki problem. The file will/should be updated by the device maintainer. Moving this to fixed but I think we should keep this till the maintainer actually gets around to including the extract script. -- White 05:07 9 Feb 2013 UTC
