Lightbulb FlipOut Recovery (CWM based v2.5.1.2)

this is a port of Tenfar's Defy Recovery for FlipOut. as the hijacks do not work on this model, there is used a different solution to load recovery.

it does not support mount/unmount. but all other function for backup/restore of system & data works (tested).
you can share usb storage to pc, or install unsigned update.zip files.

Credits for the apk goes to Tenfar, modifications to work on flipout with hack to boot is made by me.

It should work on all 2.1 based releses, as long as the phone is rooted.

controls in recovery are: VOL- & VOL+ for up/down and POWER to select.

There is an addon option to run adb at bootup (root based), if you put a empty file named: "adb_bootup" on root of sdcard.

Enjoy! (now lets see some mods!)

Installation instructions:
  • 1. root it (SuperOneClick )
  • 2. Install FlipOutRecovery.apk
  • 3. reboot phone once
  • 4. now enter app and press "Install recovery"
  • 5. next you can chose to reboot recovery , normal reboot or shutdown.

Good job!

Is there a way to install it from bootloader mode?

Care to share your source? I have a port booting on the Motorola Charm, but it fails to reboot properly back to android. It only boots to stock recovery or clockwork mod recovery. Thanks. :)

I see two problems and it's killing me now...
a. Format SYSTEM doesn't work unless you connect the device and say 'adb remount'
b. after you format the SYSTEM, restoring a Nandroid image will surely tell you "MD5 mismatch", it seems that the nandroid script is trying to use a tool from the /system

Darn it's killing me........

okay... I see.

BTW, besides the official ROMs, are there anything else to run on the MB511?

Default entering at boot

is there any way to enter the recovery at boot, rather than from the app.
say as there is with the stock recovery (x and power then release power button)

Not likely. Unless we 'flash' the recovery image to the phone's ROM. (AFAIK, that's not possible. )
