Since a lot of new custom recoveries are being built without loki due to the unified builds, I made this tool to loki recoveries.

Procedure:

1) flash your favorite recovery
2) flash the attached loki_recovery.zip

Thanks @Phil3759 for loki updater scripts and @djrbliss for finding the exploit and attn1 for loki-doki.zip

This will only loki the recovery in your recovery partition. This will NOT loki ROMs or kernels.

I know it allows to flash custom roms, but will this work for mk2?

I'm not sure what is going on here. Loki-Doki was introduced by attn1 sometime around May of 2013. It is the flashable script that Loki's recoveries, Kernels, and Roms that are not already LOKI'd. It only works for MDB and MDL firmwares on AT&T because that is all that LOKI works for with AT&T..

So what is this all about?

The loki-doki zip I could find does not Loki recoveries. It only Loki's ROMs and kernels. This zip loki's recoveries. That's all..

Nope. This will Loki your recovery if you are on MDB or MDL.

OK, thanks for clarifying. The name in the title threw me off a bit.

But there is also this...

For anyone interested in how the process works.

Ah OK.. I didn't know that existed.. This way is easier tho.. You just flash Loki_recovery.zip after a recovery flash..

I'll change the title too..

Not to sound rude but I really did not know (and still don't) that there was a Loki team. I used stuff from @Phil3759's recovery zips and the original loki-doki.zip from attn1 as a guideline. If there is such a team, please do tell me who the members are in a pm and I will take the OP down till I get permission from them.

attn1 said that people can freely use his work for further development. However, generally, it's usually good form to recognize those that your work is based on. I agree with you that this could be very useful as long as people understand what it is for and the it will only work with MDB and MDL builds. My concern was that people will confuse this with LOKI-DOKI and that would cause a lot of issues. Unfortunately, you can explain 100 times in a thread what it is or isn't and it is always the responsibility of individuals to do their own research and reading, but the truth is, the name alone would throw people off. So changing the title is probably a good thing for their sakes.
