ClockworkMod Recovery is ROM manager for Android Smartphone device. The default Huawei U8100 Android Recovery Mode just have 4 options and none of that option can be use for upgrading the ROM.

ClockworkMod ROM Manager is available on the market, but it's not compatible with Huawei U8100. Don't worry there is another way to install it on your Android. We can use fastboot to install recovery image to your phone. Okey, I'll explain the step by step tutorial how to install ClockworkMod recovery into Huawei U8100 Android Smartphone. Make sure you have all the requirements below.

1. ClockworkMod Recovery Image
2. PC with U8100 USB driver installed
3. Full battery charge

From my experience, the best version of ClockworkMod recovery that work with Huawei U8100 is version 2.5.1.8. I have use v5 but no luck to upgrade the ROM. Maybe there is any modified version for it sooner. Okay, let's try. I assume you have done nothing to your Huawei U8100 Smartphone.

1. Turn off your your phone and connect it to your PC with USB Cable. Wait until the driver installed successfully.
2. Press "End Call" + "Volume Down" and power on you phone while keep pressing "End Call" + "Volume Down" key.

  7. There is an option from ClockWorkMod Recovery said: "Install zip from SDCard", So you must not extract the .zip file.

  11. Hi, I did all of the steps, but when I run install-recovery-windows.bat, Command prompt window appears but it doesn't disappear and the last line shows "waiting for device". Of course, I installed the driver. FYI, my ops is windows xp. Thanks

  12. @Perspolis: Can you give me more info about your device, "waiting for device" means that the computer doesn't recognize your phone so you must install the driver. Please check device manager on your PC to make sure the phone has been connected to the computer
