  1. I have installed the ClockworkMod v4.0.1.5 on my Micromax A70 but on selecting the “Reboot into Recovery” option i always get the default android recovery menu and not the ClockworkMod revovery menu.

    What should i do.. ?

      • I tried re-installing ClockworkMod but this time the device hangs with the Micromax logo and doesn’t proceed to the Recovery menu. Even if i remove the battery and try pressing Power+vol. down button, it gets stuck on the Micromax logo. What should i do now ?

      • Though installing the CWM Recovery through ROM Manager didn’t work, i tried installing it by flashing the recovery image through fastboot (as mentioned in the thread) and it got installed in a flash.
