philz is cwm recovery with a facelift and some addition options and is rock solid.

users on the other hand can be VERY unreliable.

I changed over to TWRP and it is happy with the exFAT 64G extSDcard. PhilZ will not read this card. TWRP mounted and backed up directly to the extSTcard. These TW based ROM's are so huge compared to AOSP ROM's and just a few backups can kill my 16G internal memory.

My aged brain seems to remember this from much earlier and I'm having a deja vu. I'm so used to TWRP and I have come to prefer it so I think I will hang with it. Do you know why @Restl3ss preferes and recommends PhilZ? Is it just preference too? He can't be wasting his time trying each build with every different possible recovery, so he picks the recovery he is more comfortable with? You aren't aware of any special reason unique to this ROM why TRWP wouldn't be adequate, do you?

We gravitate naturally towards what works for us.

I like this recovery. It has a nice interface and it's not laggy like twrp. But this cwm is having problems restoring data on my device GT-P5200. Luckly for me I maded with twrp a backup (just in case) which I was able to restore without problems. Also this cwm can not create a backup in twrp mode (again problem with backing up data). In rest it behaves normally with flashing zips. But I need the backup and recovery functions.
I'm using stock rooted deodexed 4.4.2 rom.
By the way I tried creating and restoring backups with or without md5 check, create, etc. It creates a backup without problem, but if I want to restore the backup or create another one in twrp mode it crashes at "data".

hi
I compiled this recovery because it was what I needed. I shared that with the community. I had no need for twrp mode
so skipped it. You are more than welcome to download the sources and build the recovery you need.
In the beginning it's a little stressful but you'll get the hang of things.
When and if out tabs get Android 5 and a new recovery is needed I'll get back to it if someone else doesn't first.

Ok. I understand. I thought I did something wrong. Because you said that backup and restore is working and on my GT-P5200, with stock deodexed rom, restore didn't. Luckly for me I had a twrp backup, or else I should have to reinstall the whole rom again, apps, etc.
In conclusion it's not my fault, but this cwm it's buggy on my device. Thanks for the quick answer and I wish you a great day.

I love people who press thanks just because their master farted.

LaShto34,

You farted !

What errors for p5200 did you guys encounter ?
Did you use the version for p5200 ?
If you made a successful backup you restoration should be the same.
I did not intend to imply fault or assign blame, the recovery is simply what it is and does what it's meant to do.
Being tested thoroughly [i never spell that rite.... ] , and with hundreds of downloads and only a handful
of issues , it is reasonable to suspect a user error.

If it will help, I myself keep a copy of both my philz and twrp recovery builds on my tab and switch/flash depending
on my needs. If you are specific/accurate as to the details of your issue then i can be the same with an answer/solution
if one is indeed warranted.

moonbutt74 - I read somewhere that Philsz recovery had a feature to make a flashable ROM zip of the ROM. If so, does your version have that and does it work?

Thanks for your work for our Tab 3 10.1

Hi,

every version/build of philz, including mine, and across all the tabs i own, gt-p5210 sm-t210r gt-p3113 sm-t530nu gt-n8013
the process always fails. [EXTREME FROWNY FACE]
so i would have to say no. If you manage to get it to work, would you please provide a full and clear description
of the process ? I'm at least 100 million % certain it's something i'm doing wrong.

thanks.
