[Q] eMMC altboot recovery fails to load
I had old recovery versions in EMMC of both a recovery (twrp2.400) and alboot.img (cwm6.012) to choose from the Cyanogen menu.
I updated my ROM to the Official Cyanogen 4.2.2 (stable 10.1.3 releasel) using CWM6.029 on a bootable SD.
Now I want to update my recovery and altboot to the latest versions in eMMC.
I was able to flash TWRP126.96.36.199 as the recovery and that works fine.
I downloaded the latest CWM 188.8.131.52 acclaim image for internal, renamed it altboot.img and copied the file to the bootdata folder in root.
From the Cyanogen Menu when I select "Internal eMMC alternate" recovery I get a large inverted Nook "U" then the Internal TWRP recovery loads instead of the alternate CWM altboot recovery. I tried several versions of CWM both 184.108.40.206 & 220.127.116.11. They both do the same thing.
However when I go back to my original altboot CWM (vers6.0.12), altboot loads just fine.
Any ideas on what is going on??
