[OFFICIAL][RECOVERY] Cannibal Open Touch v3.0 Alpha Builds (latest: Alpha 3)
Cannibal Open Touch 3.0 Alpha builds
Howdy gents. It's been an incredibly long time since we've done any work on this and now we have something to show for it. I present to you alpha builds of Cannibal Open Touch 3.0!
While we try to test our work as much as possible, it is always a possibility that something could go wrong and screw up your phone. We are not responsible for any damage that is done to your device, either directly or indirectly, as a result of using Cannibal Open Touch or any other Project Open Cannibal projects. Any damage done to your device is your responsibility and your responsibility only. We do this for fun, and we simply like to share our work.
What is Cannibal Open Touch?
Cannibal Open Touch is a custom recovery (like ClockworkMod or TWRP), created purely out of love for the platform and the desire to contribute something cool to the community. The name embodies everything that Cannibal Open Touch is. We take what we believe are the best features of popular recoveries like TWRP and ClockworkMod and, well, cannibalize them along with rolling out our own features.
- Full Touch UI
- Themes coming soon!
- ORS (GooManager) support coming soon!
- Much much more planned!
If you find a bug, please do not report it here! Instead, report it in the GitHub repository!
- Some menus (like Recovery Settings) are useless. That's because this is more of a UI preview than anything else at this point.
See the Screenshots tab above.
HAAAALP, I don't see a Nandroid menu!
Hold up there, partner! Nandroid is in fact gone, and it isn't coming back. Backups are now to be made using adb, like so:
Why is Nandroid gone?
adb backup -f mybackupfilename.ab boot system data cache
Due to the increasing amount of stories about Android malware, keeping backups away from your phone storage is the safest way to do things. It would be quite trivial to write a rogue app that looked into your Nandroid backups and did naughty things.
