I've also managed to figure out the update servers url so can now check for updates without the phone

Update 19/08/2014

I have started to create a ROM based on B021. It is still in very very early stages of development and any screenshots seen below should be taken with a grain of salt as things may change in the future.

Here are some screenshots of the progress so far:


You can download the ROM I've been working on here:

CWM For The P2
Ok, well here's a start CWM for the P2

It's not quite the normal flashable .img that you get with most other devices

This is P2Tools.apk and app that install's CWM on to the /system partition and can be booted to from the app for during boot by pressing VOL- or VOL+ when the RED LED comes on.

This is not a Touch Recovery,
Aroma also suffers the half screen bug of CWM6 when it's being used.

This has been edited so as not to wipe /data/share or /data/cust when performing wipes

The P2 does not use /data/media like most devices but /data/share for the /sdcard
