Here is our new ArcTools package designed to facilitate ClockworkMod (CWM) Recovery system installation on your device. This should work on most Rockchip devices running RK3066 or RK3188 processors.

 

Requirements and compatibility:

A rooted firmware is required, if you are not running one of our Kasty firmwares, you should be able to find one for your device in our forum.

If you are using a different firmware and ArcTools is not pre-installed, you can download it here:

Arctools apk

 

Following a few days testing period, we have gathered enough positive feedback from the testers and this package is confirmed to work on the following tablets:

Cube U30GT (RK3066) tested by admin

Cube U23GTC4-W (RK3188) tested by admin

Cube U30GT2 (RK3188) tested by Sethi, thantos and DaezD, saciorlux and robiom

Cube U39GT tested by manu_katz

PiPO M9 pro (RK3188) tested by cracktech and yabalis

Pipo M9 pro (Android KitKat firmware) tested by admin, using ManuPC recovery package

Pipo M6 max tested by Balrog

ifive mini2 tested by juliusdapat

 

Using ArcTools to install CWM Recovery 

We haven't yet written documentation for this CWM installation process but the video below shows the main steps. If anyone wants to help the community with the documentation, feel free to post here.

 

(edit 2014/01/14) ManuPC CWM Recovery for Android 4.4.2 KitKat firmware

If you are running an Android 4.4.2 (KitKat) firmware on your Rockchip device, we recommend using this package:  "iFive X2 Android 4.4.2 CWM Recovery by ManuPC". Thanks ManuPC for providing this recovery image.

(edit 2014/04/16) OMA CWM Recovery for Android 4.4.2 KitKat firmware 

The "iFive X2 Android 4.4.2 CWM Recovery by ManuPC" that is listed above is a good option for anyone looking for a ClockworkMod (CWM) Recovery on a RK tablet running KitKat. Still it has limitations such as not being able to support sdcard for storage.

It's been a while that Oma, the great developer from Crew RKTablets has made a custom CWM that fixes the problem. With Oma's permission, we have made an ArcTools package with this recovery image, it should appear in your ArcTools package list under the name:

"(OMA / CrewRKTablets) CWM Recovery 6.0.3.1 for Android 4.4.2 KitKat on RK tablets (loader Gen2)".

OMA_CWM_6_0_3_1_b.pngImage Enlarger

 

Please note that both ManuPC and OMA packages should be used only an Rockchip based tablets running Android 4.4.x (KitKat) with a Gen2 Rockchip loader ( RK3188Loader(L)_V2.xx.bin )

 

To check your Rockchip loader version, after you load a firmware in Rockchip Batch Tool, the version appears as you can see in the picture below (illustration shows a Rockchip loader 2.10 on a PiPO M9 KitKat firmware)

Rockchip_Batch_Tool_1_7_loader_v2_10c.png

Normally all Android 4.4 KitKat firmwares from the manufacturer are using a Rockchip loader version 2

(the number shown in Rockchip Batch Tool should be 2.something). To our knowledge, no manufacturer have provided KitKat firmwares based on a Rockchip loader, there are only a few custom firmwares from independent developers such as Crew RKTablets.

 


 

Controls in CWM Recovery

Controls are done thru hardware buttons on your tablet : Vol-/Vol+ to go up and down, power button to validate choices. For tablets without these hardware buttons, you can either use a keyboard/mouse connected to your tablet using an USB OTG (Other the Go) cable, or use gestures on the touchscreen: touch and move up to select up, touch and move down to select down, swipe left to accept or swipe right to go back.

 

(NEW!) 2015/01/09: TWRP/CWM Flash-Tool and root for RK3288 devices by Oma7144 & Crew RKTablets, check this topic.

 

The usual disclaimer applies: our application and CWM package come with no warranty for any use; you use it at your own risk. Make sure you first have a backup of your data before testing firmwares or recovery procedures.

 

Thanks to fun_ from androtab.info, ManuPC and OMA (Crew RKTablets) for their CWM Recovery build.

Cheers.
