How to wipe data & cache with ClockworkMod Recovery on HTC HD2?

41

One of the issues that many people face with installing a new NAND Android ROM based on ClockworkMod Recovery ~ fail to boot into Android. You will not face this issue if you have a blank SD card and flashing your first ClockworkMod Recovery Android ROM. However, for those who have ClockworkMod Recovery Android on the phone and wanted to try out other Android build. You might face this issue. Root cause ~ system and data structure are not the same between builds. So new Android ROM crashes with old data. Note – there are 2 major version of ClockworkMod Recovery ~ v1.2 (reside at SD card) and v1.3 (reside at NAND memory).

How to wipe data & cache with ClockworkMod Recovery on HTC HD2?

Step by Step Guide

  1. Power on your phone and don’t let go power button.
  2. DFT MAGLDR Bootloader will be loaded.
  3. Go to AD Recovery (v1.3) or Boot AD SD (v1.2).
  4. ClockworkMod Recovery will be loaded.
  5. Select wipe data/factory reset.
  6. Then select Yes — delete all user data.
  7. Select wipe cache partition.
  8. Then select Yes — Wipe Cache.
  9. That’s all.

After wipe data and cache, you are ready to try out other new Android ROM with interesting features. Enjoy…

    Thank you for this information. What about if I want to restore my HTC HD2 to its original factory setting and remove all of the tweaks and applications that I installed(ClockworkMod Recovery, DFT MAGLDR, ultimate droid etc) What do I have to do? Thank you for your patience!

    Hello jaycee,

    i’ve been writing to you earlier too, i’m in deep trouble.. i had been using mgldr 1.13 and hspl4 with 2.08 version and the rom that i used was WWE 3.14.

    my phone used to reboot with a plain white screen on its own, so i deleted gauner’s hd-fi nand rom and install darkstone nand rom which was running pretty fast and smooth.. i moved back to gauner hd-fi, and it happened again.. same white screen.

    now when i try to install ANY other rom or diferent version of HSPL it doesnt work, it either gives me an error or shows the same HSPL 2.08. i cant move back to original windows rom, third party windows rom, cant even install and load magldr.. it either stucks or gives an error, cant even move from HSPL 2.08 to different HSPL version or back to soft SPL for that matter.

    what am i to do here? i gave it to a software guy in the market, he did it before but he was unable to fix it this time.

    is there any way i can fix it? if yes how?

    regards.

      You still have SPL-2.08.HSPL on your phone, right? What is the error message when you try to install Windows Mobile or NAND Android?

      • mughees

        nothing at all.. it halts after 4-5 mins and then it goes into recovery mode. yes i have the same version.

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          No error message when install Windows Mobile? Back to recovery mode? Do you mean ‘Red, Green, Blue and White’ screen here?

  • mughees

    no error message.. it either gets stuck at 0% or when it goes to 1 or 2% in different windows rom version and gives me a recovery error after 5-6 minutes ( and reboots itself and goes into plain white black screen mode ). it only shows the green, blue, white screen when i press the down volume key everytime it reboots.

  • mughees

    hey jayce, i tried formatting it with sd card also, but it didnt work.. it failed at about 5% saying update terminate UPDATE FAIL.

    how do i fix it now?

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Sorry, I have no further idea already…

      • mughees

        can you please ask and consult with concerned people? i badly need to fix my phone as im broke and i cant buy any other phone right now.

        as far as i know.. theres some serious issue with the RADIO version.. im unable to install custom radio, even the installation stops when installing RADIO.

        is it an issue with software or hardware? if hardware? do i need to change the whole board?

    Hi! I wanted to install a new ROM and one of the instructions was to do a “Task29.” Whats the difference between this method and “Task29?”

        Ok, if i want to install a new ROM, do i just wipe data/factory reset and wipe cache?

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce Ooi

          Yes if CWM layout size matches to new ROM too.
