T30 rom (only GB and CZ language)
Mirror by Astrali :
Kernel source EU version
Modded boot.img with T30 kernel and T27 ramdisk (to get latest kernel keeping your multilingual T27 rom)
update : i also manage to build Philz Touch recovery !
Below are the files that you need to build CWM recovery or Philz (files to replace on an CM11 git repo)
mainly boardconfig.mk and some modifications to roots.c, nandroid.c, graphics_overlay.c and additional msm_ion.h / msm_mdp.h
Disclaimer : this recovery is provided "as is" and i'm not responsible for any lost (hardware / software / girlfriend ...)
How-to (not for newbie: you need to know how to get adb / fastboot and install the correct drivers for phicomm c230w wchih could be painful, i don't have time to explain it here also a lot of people have writtent on these issues)
1) Download the recovery_c230w_0.1.img from :
or the Philz Touch (this one will replace your su apps something strange, now my phone is always root)
2) Plug your phicomm into your computer
adb reboot bootloader
fastboot boot recovery_c230w_0.1.img
5) If everything went fine on 4 you could permanently flash the recovery with :
fastboot flash recovery recovery_c230w_0.1.imgrecovery_c230w_0.1.img
Koylaaa have sucessufully installed the recovery using nandroid manager :
The date of backup and folder name will be "1970-01..."
it's because of the qualcomm hardware and kernel having writing on the RTC disabled (to prevent some issue on modem) => no fix so far
People say that using rom manager to make backup solve the problem (to be validated)
How to build :
See below what tutorial i have been following.
When your system is able to build a recovery use the files that I provide to get a usable recovery on the msm8610 (mainly aded definition in the boarconfig.mk and some code rewrite about the sdcard0 and 1 of this device)

Hello all (i think i have to put this in the android hacking dev section but as a new user i can't )
I got this new phone from china (bangood).
It's a dual core snapdragon 200 (msm8610 in the build.prop file)
come with 512ram and 4g rom
It come rooted and with the minimal android recovery e3.
But i want to be able to make nandroid backups so i try to build the cyanomodgen 11 recovery for it.
I have followed the tutorials from
I was able to extract the original boot.img and recovery.img from my phone.
(althought my phone use some weird partitions scheme)
I use the cyanomodgen 11 source on a virtualised ubuntu 12.04lts x64
I was able to get the recovery image builded, and the update.zip too.
After some test i discover that i have to add the dt.img into the recovery.img with the help of mkboot, that's OK.
So i tested my builded recovery.zip with fastboot boot recovery.img.
And it doesn't work :
The phone reboot, the screen goes black but the phone is usb-detected as an adb device. It is not crashed and i can reboot it with adb reboot.
For test purpose I was able to unpack the original recovery.img, modify some images, repack it and it will boot OK (so mkboot seem good)
I also try to replace only the /sbin/recovery with the cwm one in the stock recovery.img with the same result (screen black, adb usable)
I also try two other already builded CMW recovery : one for the KIS3 and one for the nokia x2, two phone based on more or less the same SOC.
( from http://www.modaco.com/topic/373213-r...-open-c-kis-3/ and http://forum.xda-developers.com/noki...ia-x2-t2850273)
The two recovery behave the same :
they work but the screen is fuzzy (at least screen resolution aren't the same, maybe gpu are different)
It is adb-detected and if i push two time the power button it will reboot indicating that the recovery works.
So i have two options :
- be able to build a correct CMW recovery from the CWM sources (i like this one because of beeing able to add a new device to cwm recovery)
- be able to reuse the already builded recovery and put it in my stock recovery.img. (i try to put the ramdisk files into my stock recovery but i only manged to get a black screen with a lot of usb drive detected, like on for each partitions)
Please tell me which option would be simple.
If you need any else information i could provide all the file that i have extarcted from my phone (boot.img recovery.img i also have the firmware.img...)
ps : please excuse some mistake in my english as i'am a french people. Please excuse if it's not the right section, i have read many thing on xda-dev but it's my first post.
