[RECOVERY] ClockworkMod Recovery (Test) for G2X
Read Me First!
This will get CWM on your device's recovery partition and wipe out your stock recovery. If you wish to keep things simpler, just install ROM Manager and "flash" the T-Mobile G2x recovery from there, it doesn't actually overwrite your stock recovery, but it will still let you boot into CWM recovery, only by using ROM Manager, of course.
** Not responsible for any damage done, obviously. **
Here is an initial test of CWM recovery for the G2X. You need to use nvflash to flash this, I've packaged it up for you and included a nice bash script to flash it, on Linux.
Hold VOL UP+VOL DOWN
Plug in USB.
The phone won't do anything, but you should see it under 'lspci'.
Then grab http://mirror.dal.tdrevolution.net/c...h-recovery.tgz
Extract it, and run flash-recovery.sh
You're not stuck on a software upgrade screen, when your computer says the recovery image was transferred successfully, just pull USB and you're done.
test2 - Properly mount /sdcard to the external SD.
test2 - Fix device name, should be p999 not p990.
test2 - Do not use custom recovery ui, navigate using VOL UP/DOWN and Power to select. (BOARD_HAS_NO_SELECT_BUTTON).
test1 - Initialness.

I hate XDA. If you see me posting here, it's probably important.
