That sounds pretty awesome, will try later. I would have saved a lot of hours with that... anyway, I'll save them by now

I have not disabled USB debugging and I have M boot loop. Now reflashing to try again.

For everyone - do not forget to turn off usb debugging. Now itīs working and I am going to try it some more.

Edit: Finally the true, fully working recovery. With Tenfarīs recovery, this is the best developed thing for Defy, since Defyīs release
and itīs worth the donation. About only 5 minutes to recover bricked system.
I only hope some day adb will be working too, but this is great enough for now.

How can I get root-access after starting adb via the bootmenu?
Currently, it's not working for me:

Not yet. We need the 2nd-init working to do that.

it's a great improvement but no where near custom kernels

afaik, this is another "bootstrap" executed on boot except it resumes normal boot after 2 seconds or so.

if we can get 2nd-init to work with it, we might finally be close to getting what milestone already have.

Curious, just in case anyone has already tried and can give an answer: when installed, is outer persistent after you flash a sbf? Or is it overwritten by the sbf? Does anyone know? (i mean, afaik /pds isn't restored with sbf, mess with it and you get a brick! )

Nope, i have just emailed "intohim" and asked him to come online, as he is the only one who can read korean, and the korean page doesnt work here for some reason. I will update as soon as i get a reply

Sorry to say, but nope, this is not hardcoded in to rom or is not replaced in place of original recovery as the bootloader is still locked. And installing a sbf update is like replacing everything on the phone with the contents from sbf. So it wont work if you reflash the sbf, unless it is included in the mod or rom you installed. Some developers have just contacted me and said that they are going to include this on their rom. So future defy roms are going to be more safe
