Any way to upgrade the CWM in Valhalla black to 5.0.2.8 without using another kernel? Right now it is on 5.0.2.7 and I would like to upgrade if possible.

Thanks for any help in advance.

There aren't any BML kernels that use 5.0.2.8 at the moment. Why do you want it.

Actually hampster kernel has cwm 5.0.2.8 (blue cwm) but some users are having issues with nand backups and going to mtd with that kernel.

FB, why not rebuild the kernel in vb with my new initramfs?

Added it to my todo list. The thing is that now I really like your CM7 build.sh and am disliking the BML kernel's build.sh. I might just go ahead and do it with anton's kernel since he has a lot of patches already, or he can do it himself.

Does this thing auto-root? I don't see any references to it in your commit history.

I looked at CWM briefly, but I don't know much about our phone boot and recovery process. I don't even understand why recovery has to be build for each device individually and cannot use a single binary and some config and script files.

This is the latest source for the touch recovery:
https://github.com/CyanogenMod/andro...table_recovery

If we can figure how to build and use it I'll include it in the kernel.

Bryan was messing around with getting a build of it going on CM7. Once touch works, it'll be a lot simpler to include it in BML kernels.

This is because the way recovery works is based on the the BoardConfig.mk and other make variables that are specific to the board (like the size of the partitions, other device features that are enabled, etc...)

You don't want to look at the ICS branch. If you want touch recovery, you need to look at the cm-7.2.0 branch... but it has a lot of weird dependencies and as I've said in this forum already... I got a handle on it. I should have something by or on this weekend.
