Default [HELP] Twrp problems.

Well, it so happened that I was on omni rom 4 3.1 with cocore kernel twrp recovery and I saw in a thread that we can theme our recovery by adding a ui.zip file in the theme folder of twrp. Ever since then, my phone boots in recovery only (without the three button combination). Plus in twrp, the theme is applied but I get a super zoomed view of the recovery so I can't restore nandroid as well. Of course, I used my last resort and brought back my phone to stock through odin but the problem is what did I do wrong and what should I take care of to prevent this sort of **** from happening in the future?

Why did you use the co-core kernel for a cm ROM??
The rom shouldn't boot if you did this..
BTW You are getting the super zoomed recovery maybe because you are using the ui.zip designed for a mdpi/ldpi screen resolution.
Our screen is hdpi.

Do not mess with something that you are not sure that works on our phone. If you read that someone that has I9070 phone is using something, you can use it. Searching and using stuff from other phones can make you mess like that you got.


Omni MUST use its kernel, you CAN'T use COCORE on it. You will end up with a bootloop if you use COCORE on OMNI.


What you need to do is to flash stock FIRMWARE with ODIN. Download CoCore kernel, UNPACK it and use KERNEL.BIN.MD5 (copy to phone memory). Install UKF and ROOT EXPLORER. Open Universal kernel flasher and follow the procedure to install COCORE. Install, reboot and you have permanent recovery (CWM or TWRP depends what CoCore version you choose).

Perhaps you guys misunderstood me.. I did not flash cocore on Omni.. I flashed cocore on stock and then I flashed omni rom.. so I guess I have permanent recovery..

Im sorry if I sound like a noob but hey, every expert was once a noob, Im learning

I agree to the part of messing with things that people Dont use on our phone, I'll see to that in future..

I missunderstood. Because you wrote: "that I was on omni rom 4 3.1 with cocore kernel twrp"

P.S. Maybe that theme problem have something to do with version of TWRP. But I can't tell for sure.

By the way, why did you tell the rom should not boot? Is it because the cocorekernel is only supported on android 4.1 or some other reason?

And when I went from omni rom to cm11 by maclaw, my recovery changed to cwm... any idea why did this happen because I was supposed to have permanent twrp

The recovery in our phone is dependent on the kernel.
So if the kennel changes, the recovery changes..

Default custom recovery in cm11

So if i flash from stock rom jb to cm11 (tc) , the recovery changes to cwm , no matter if u had CoCore+cwm or CoCore+ TWRP in stock rom.
What happens to the kernel in cm11?
i have done nandroid backup with TWRP, but since recovery changes to cwm in cm11 , will i no longer be able to restore the backup ?
Would it be better to do a nandroid backup with CoCore+Cwm then?
