This will be the custom recovery beta thread for Micromax a60 recovery. Split from main thread to keep it on topic.

Test Version: Note I do not have this phone and was asked to add this to my recovery lineup.

Directions:


Download this recovery and copy to root of sdcard
see post 162 for latest http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=162

download flash_image.zip and unzip and copy to root of sdcard

flash_image.zip

Download this and copy to root of sdcard (do not unzip)
signed_test_flash.zip

commands to flash recovery

from adb shell or terminal (requires root # prompt)
Code:
su

mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock1 /system

cat /sdcard/flash_image > /system/bin/flash_image

chmod 755 /system/bin/flash_image

mv /system/etc/install-recovery.sh /system/etc/install-recovery.sh.bak (notice this file install-recovery.sh may not be on your device if it gives an error or file not found move on)

flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-a60-gnm.img (or name of recovery.img)

sync
then power off device and boot holding "HOME" key

Please test nandroid backup/restore by using the nandroid backup and restore option

Please test usb mass storage in recovery

Please test flashing of signed-test_flash.zip which if successful will place test-flash_file in /system/bin

Please test key mapping if if it is wrong use keycode debugging under other menu and send me keymapping and keycodes. IE. vol-up is keycode 000 etc

Key mapping is Vol-up & Vol-down move selection up & down. Back is backup a menu. Menu key is to select.

This is a test version I'll do full release soon after bugs (if any) are worked out.

For debugging use the move recovery-log to sd option under other and please upload it with feedback.

I tested but the text on the recovery was not readable. It was only responding to volume up-down, ( as you have said now only I read the instruction ). I tried to select options with menu key, even a level down text was not readable.

I got an error "mtd: not writing bad block at 0x002c0000" one time I tried
Code:
flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-a60-gnm.img
The first time I tried
Code:
cat /sdcard/flash_image > /system/bin/flash_image
I got /sdcard/flash_image: No such file or directory, just added for documentation. Thanks to @drellisdee and others. Should I try once more, pls let me know.

Seems like options are working. My phone reset to default or something when I selected an option (not readable!) and my installed apps are missing

Sounds like it. Seems you selected data wipe. Please setup adb drivers if you havent already. In recovery do this to test nandroid. Adb shell nandroid-mobile.sh --backup
Can someone verify the resolution of this device ie. Wvga, hvga etc. It need to look at resolution for the ui stuff.

When you say text isnt readable do you mean its not there or to small or jumbled to read. Try to take screen shot with adb shell ddms or adb shell ./ddms

Text is not small. Looks like the frequency is not correct, that is my guess.

I too got the same thing. It's unreadble. resolution problem may be. It should be QVGA 240x320. Thats what i think.







Installed this custom recovery through an app called "recovery flasher", which can be downloaded from the market.
