Wiki Problems

This page is for reporting problems specific to the wiki.

While just about any content on this web site can be improved via direct edits (and we do encourage you to learn to fix things yourself), we understand that not everyone is comfortable editing a wiki. So, if you've identified content that needs to be altered (e.g. bad installation instructions, broken links, incorrect build procedure), report it here. To do so, press the edit button in the tab above. Don't worry-- editing this wiki page is reasonably safe and unlikely to break any other part of the site.

Please describe the issue in reasonable detail and include links to all relevant pages. If you have information that would solve the issue you've identified, please provide it as well. At the end of your report, paste the following code: --~~~~. That's two dashes (-) followed by four tildes (~). This code will automatically be replaced with your name and the date (a "signature") when you submit your edit.

If you are an experienced wiki-editor, you can help fix problems on this page. If you resolve an issue, please remove the report when you're finished. There is no need to post replies or any confirmation that the problem has been fixed. Instead, you can write on a user's Talk page to follow-up on a report.

Examples

Bad examples:

I couldn't get my Nexus 7 build working!
Build cm-11-20140125-NIGHTLY-device.zip has broken wifi.

Good examples:

Grouper_Info: The kernel source code is actually located at http://www.github.com/cyanogenmod/android_device_asus_grouper, not http://www.github.com/cyanogenmod/baddirectory.

Install_CM_for_n7100
The command
adb push ...
didn't work for me, telling that the device is not detected (I am new to this topic). It worked after I issued the command
adb shell
once and exited. It took me an hour or even more until I figured this out. I think it would be reasonable to add this step to the template with installing instructions. I suppose this step is also needed for many other models.

Install_CM_for_serranoltexx
Following page:
"How to Install CyanogenMod on the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini (International LTE) ("serranoltexx")"
http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Install_CM_for_serranoltexx#Installing_a_custom_recovery_on_Galaxy_S4_Mini_.28International_LTE.29

Contains nonworking link for custom recovery. Please search for:
"recovery-clockwork-6.0.5.0-serranoltexx.tar.zip" which is a link to:
http://chelnok.de/recovery-clockwork-6.0.5.0-serranoltexx.tar.zip
Clicking link results to "not found" page. I have tried multiple times during several weeks.

Upon trying to save a translation in the translation tool, I always get an alert informing me that the save has failed. This happened while trying to translate in italian the untranslated portions of the pages Community and About, with both Google Chrome and IE11. --Tre3qwerty (talk) 19:54, 19 September 2014 (UTC)


Install_CM_for_i9100#Installing_a_custom_recovery_on_Galaxy_S_II codeworkx's Recovery: cwmr6047.img link does not take to download link. The location in the flashing image is not clear: where is zImage? zImage is not a file but the folder of the zip. After step 4 recommend removing battery and reinserting it. After blue line is full is it OK to turn off? Step 10 boots into Yellow exclamation mark even if just shutdown, remove battery and do volume up home power. This seems to be recovery failure. --Amunizp (talk) 05:31, 19 September 2014 (UTC)


Install CM for tsubasa Section Installing CyanogenMod on Sony Devices, point 4 It says: "While the device reboots, press the Volume rockers a few times to load recovery." That's missleading. It should be Enter the recovery mode by turning on the phone while holding down the volume down button. --Royalpain (talk) 04:50, 14 September 2014 (UTC)


Install_CM_for_d710 says
heimdall flash --kernel zImage --no-reboot

Tip: The file may not be named identically to what's in this command. If the file is wrapped in a zip or tar file, extract the file first, because heimdall isn't going to do it for you.

Note: this device has an initramfs recovery, meaning recovery is actually packaged inside a kernel image. Substitute the filename of the kernel/recovery combo that you downloaded in place of zImage above.

please clarify what to specify in the flash command. i tried specifying the whole zip, or the sbin/recovery, either leaves me with a soft brick. atm i'm googling for a d710 heimdall unbrick tutorial(rwilco12.com/forum/showthread.php?tid=43 is also unclear as to what to specify to flash). --Gregrwm (talk) 20:56, 11 September 2014 (UTC)


The indication "Both cases require adb to be working in recovery." is nice but not really satisfactory if this is to be a walktrough guide. I recommend posting a link to the method cited here: [1] respectively to the answer including a modification of the android_winusb.inf file. I tested the method today and it worked well for my Moto G.--Mooka (talk) 18:58, 8 September 2014 (UTC)


This issue was reported by NateBroChill: A listing of model numbers that hlte supports is missing from the info page. See SGS3FAQ for example.--Matt Mower (talk) 00:04, 27 July 2014 (UTC)


This issue was reported by Skyler827: Install_CM_for_huashan: If you can't install the drivers for Fastboot mode, see the second answer to this question: http://android.stackexchange.com/questions/61279/sony-xperia-zr-fastboot-driver.

^ Driver install instructions in the wiki for many devices would be a good idea (including bootloader/fastboot and recovery mode). --Matt Mower (talk) 23:55, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

You need to *hold down* "Vol Down & Home & Power" until the Warning!! screen appears, and then press Vol Up

Zadig has to be run graphically as windows administrator, not from the command line

There is no Replace Driver button at first, you need to press Install Driver first? But that doesn't always work, you have to press it a few times?

"A blue transfer bar will appear on the device showing the recovery being transferred." There is no such bar. It just says "Downloading", but it works.

Need to hold Vol Up and Home and Power until "recovery booting" shows on screen, and then let go. Holding down the power button powers off the phone, but does not boot into recovery. You need to let go of the power button briefly after it has powered off and then keep pressing it and it will boot into recovery in 3 seconds. If you just hold the buttons down it will go black and stay that way.

HOLY FUCK DID THIS WIPE my "internal SD card" and CWM didn't include it in the backup?? I had pictures on that!

Oh phew they're in /mnt/shell/emulated. I was worried because /mnt/sdcard was replaced by some stock empty thing and I couldn't find the files!


I cannot translate this page: http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/index.php?title=Community/ko&action=edit I want to change "Translations:Community/3/ko" into this

[[2]Install_CM_on_Samsung_Galaxy_S] I was not able to connect to my device: Samsung Galaxy S, while in CWM.It was Semaphore 2.4.7. It always shows the device is offline, when I try to connect witch adb. So I were not able to get the .zip file on the SD-Card an could not follow the instructions in the wiki. My Solution to this Problem was to transfer the .zip file on the SD-Card before flashing. Then I was able to install the .zip-file in CWM.
