Unofficial CWM Recovery 6.0.2.8 for HTC Desire 300 (g3u)

device_htc_g3u v0.77b (25/9/14)

rearranged entries in recovery.fstab
(to speed up manual mounting via recovery menu)
fixed sideload's driver log spam
(errors are only surpressed but it should do the trick)
fixed ext-sd log spam
(blinkfeed-data repurposed as ext-sd)
device_htc_g3u v0.7b (28/8/14)

fixed double buffering
(graphics.c tamed with 0% overscan involved)
fixed stability issues
(cwm's ueventd.rc was evil and a worthy foe)

Full Disclosure
This is my first android project, so go easy on me.

Project Status
Main Features are working.
Backup,Wipe,Restore,Install,ADB,USB-MS,USB-SL
(Tested by factory resetting my device, installing CM10 and reverting back to my backup)

TODO
md5 check is slow (by design? missing crypto mods?) [no priority]

Disclaimer
Use at you own risk.
I can not be held accountable for any damage you might cause to your device if you decide to flash this file.


Installation
Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to infiltrate the bootloader and meet the contact fastboot.
Initiate a conversation by saying fastboot flash recovery recovery.img and wait for his response.
End the conversation with fastboot reboot-bootloader and navigate to the exfiltration point recovery.

Special Thanks
go out to whoever actually fixed the framebuffer issue by teaching minui how to properly align the frames for double buffering.

I have no clue if they work. but knowing that philz is just a variation of cwm and the backups should be just misnamed tar archives.
I guess they could. It's worth a try.
Worst thing that can happen is that it won't boot until you restore a different backup you hopefully made before you started such an attempt

Is it possible to upgrade new CWM through old PhilZ CWM v.6.0.3.7 or I have to use ADB?
