    • Wag nyo pung e update… Baka brick cp nyo po. Mas okey if naka back up ka ng dating original. Para ma ibalik sa dati.. Once may balita kayong may new update. E balik nyo lang sa dati. Pata maka update. Basta wag po kayong mag update if naka custom rom kayo.

  1. Sorry kailangan ko talagang mangulit… Pag click ko kasi download. Nag stock na sha doon. Na plug ko na po yung usb. Surebol connected sa pdanet. After unplug. Off ko cp ko. Hit power up + vol down. No command parin po… Salamat po sa sagot.

    • nakapag root na po ako ng cm flare s3 power lollipop gamit ang latest kingroot, advice lang need mo ng strong wifi, at hndi ka kaagad maroot nyan, ako naka 7 attempts bago naroot, attempt ng attempt ka lang hanggang maroot, i am sure hndi ka maka abot ng 10 attempts kung malakas ang wifi mo. pa credit nalang po papa jack tnx.

  2. So you mean. Press power at vol down habang naka saksak pa yung usb cable habang naka off? Di ko pa na try yun… Try ko bukas.

    Nag ka check na kasi sakin successful daw ang download pero wala paring twrp nag white screen lang yung phone ko. 🙂

    • Sorry pero wala ko video tutorial. First wala ako CM S3 power 2nd. Busy ako sa full time work at family ko. Pwede ako mag provide ng image tutorial which you can follow easily.

    • sir jack misunderstanding po, hindi galit yung tono ko sa tanong na yan haha xD genuine question po. nagwowonder lang kung pano na mo na test habang walang cm s3p.
      tsaka po un talaga nfeel ko nung nabasa ko na wala kau cm s3, nkakatakot itry (lalo na kung nabasa ng walang experience katulod ko) dahil ung nagpost mismo wla cp sa subject na ipinost, kaya nagtanong ako hehe. genuine question po, hindi galit at choosy. may utak po ako, nakakalito lang yung instruction lalo na sa baguhan po. ipost ko po below ung ginawa ko…

    • mejo po nakakalito ung steps pero nroot ko naman din, at sabi ng root checker app na may root access na ako.
      eto po yung ginawa ko:

      continue sa Step 5 & 6

      5. Press Download button (wag muna isasaksak sa PC)
      6. Plug nyo na sa PC ang Phone

      pag plug nyo sa phone nyo, makikita nyo na may DOWNLOAD OK na window lalabas..

      unplug phone

      HOLD Power then Volume down (1-3 seconds sa akin) hanggang sa lumabas Flare S3 Power logo, then let go na sa buttons

      lalabas yung Carliv Touch Recovery sa Phone, katulad sa pics na ipinost ni Papajack sa guide.

      Follow nyo na instructions nya.

      >>>> sa akin, hindi ko nakita yung BETA supersu zip.
      kaya in-off at on ko ang Phone at isinave ko yung BETA SuperSu.zip sa sdcard thru ES File Explorer app.


      inulit ko yung steps 5 & 6 pati yung Hold down Power + Vol down etc…
      tapos dun, meron na yung BETA supersu.zip. follow nyo na instructions nya.

      ganun ko po naroot cm fs3p ko.

      pa approve po papajack para makita po at mafollow ng iba lalo na yung mga mejo nalilito. Thanks po.

  3. ang gulo naman ng tutorial nyo sir. after ng sp flash tool download ok meron kaayong note na power + vol down taz meron ding vol up + power. anu po ba talaga sa 2? tried power + vol up but nothing happens. tried vol down + power napunta sa recovery pero hindi nmn custom recovery so aborted ung flashing ng super su.zip. magulo kz yung tutorial po eh.

  4. thanks a lot jack , already using it now. nice interface for lollipop twrp ganito pala ang itsura ..sa mga tao namn na hindi nkakaintindi sa tutorial wag na kayong magalit kayo na nga ginagawan ng paraan kayo pa ang may ganang magalit.hay naku!..common sense nlng .kung wlang common sense wag nlng. by the way thanks ulit sa twrp sir jack..more power androidcribs.com!!!

  5. sir jack may problrem aq hindi aq mkapagfull back up sa twrp , unable to mount data' yong data q po zero mb at yung cache nia zero din…kailangan ba na e flash q uli yun kitkat na original firmware kasi lollipop na to .i flash it through spft ..yon parin ang probs unable to mount data' ngfullwipe kasi aq using ctr sir..yon kaya ang dahilan ngcrash yung data files ko?..cguro try q e flash ulit yung original firmware na kitkat , ang probs po wala aq nung original tlaga na o.s ..kasi yong nand2 po sa inyo na firmware na flash q na po yun pa rin ang probs..so , ang kailangan original na firmware sir jack ..meron po ba kayong link para sa fs3p kitkat firmware orig.

  6. sir , try q na po e mount error parin sir data at cache files..parang sa internal tlaga sir jack ..may idea ka ba sir? .tiningnan q sa es file explorer yung root files sa o.s yung data and cache wlang laman sir , how come nagfunction parin xa kahit walng data at cache files sir hindi xa ngbootloop..kaya lng hindi aq mka.backup and hindi makapagflash ng custom o.s ..

  7. pag nasa recovery po aq , mount hindi q po ma check yong box ng data sir at cache..error talaga..stable po ba yong cmd e repair ang data partition? may nabasa aq sa xda sir jack pero sa nexus 5 na tutorial.. wlang mediatek..ilang beses na aqng ng flash ng stock firmware na lollipop sir yun parin ang probs pg.ngback.up na aq.

  8. Attempt repair of /data partition. This partition includes /sdcard and dalvik. (/sdcard is linked to /data/media) At the ~# prompt:
    a. Enter: ‘e2fsck /dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/userdata’

    -through adb xa sir jack and rooted phone. ok po ba ito?

  9. Sir , name try q po yung havotek na tut regarding data error for mediatek ..nung tiningnan q sa es file may laman na po yung cache at data files pero ayaw parin mg fullback up sir..di kaya sa twrp sir? flash q kasi yung image using rashl app hindi po spft..kailangan ba spft ang gagamitin para sa twrp

  10. Salamat Papa Jack 🙂 Kudos! Super easy. Custom ROM naman next time. HIHIHIHIHI. More power androidcribs especially Papa Jack 🙂 Waiting for TWRP sir. Godbless! 🙂

  11. fs3 ko lollipop ayaw nang mag open bootloop ? pwede ba siya downgrade ng kitkat kasi wala pa daw program fs3 power nung pinagawa ko .. help me plsss. di rooted fs3 power ko

  12. May tanong po ako sir.pwd po ba mag flash ng custom rom sa cmfs3power lollipop version gamit ang OTA UPDATE?kasi po may settings doon na install via sd card tpos mag boboot sya aa recover mode. Pws po ba i flash kht nd rooted?

  13. Sir pwede po ba to sa i root sa pc gamit yung windows 10? Kasi baka magkaproblema pa at ma bootloop pa CM Flare S3 Power ko. At nkita ko po hindi gumagana yung mga software.

  14. Sir. Pwede po ba malaman kung dapat ba nakapatay yung unit o bukas siya sa step na plug niyo na sa pc ang phone? Kasi medyo di po naguguluhan ako sa instruction. Salamat po 🙂

  15. thanks sa TWRP, works great, backup, restore, factory reset, mount system,and data,externalsd, aside lang sa pag mount ng sdcard to PC, although need modifications sa lollipop rom para ma mount ung /data partition
