Beta2 change log: complete rework of recovery.fstab. rework of recovery source CWM now fully up to date with latest version and more
Now, before I post this, We are not responsible for any bricks.
/system mounts, however it doesn't unmount to be able to format during a restore.
FULL ROM FLASHING!!! Backup, Advanced Restore of Data and Cache, Flashing zips (mods, boot animations, kernels, modems, etc), Error reporting and everything else but full restore due to the system issue.
How to get to recovery: Power Menu Mod, Quick Boot App, adb reboot recovery, 3 button salute.
What you will need to do:
Use Root Explorer, Android Commander, Droid Explorer or what ever else is out there to replace the recovery binary in /system/bin with the one attached. This will allow you to flash the update.zip from stock recovery.
After the file is replaced reboot the phone.
Put the update.zip on your external SD, boot into recovery and choose the 2nd Option to flash update.zip from SD.
This will boot you into CWM.
Biggest change from 22.214.171.124 to 3.x:
your normal zips will not work on this CWM or any future CWM for that matter. CWM3 has been updated to only allow edify updater-scripts. You will need to modify all of your update-scripts to be in the edify format. I will need to find a link on how to do this and post it in this thread.
More updates to follow. This is just to hold everyone over for now. Again, please do not complain that you can not restore or ( flash a full rom (untested)). This is a known issue, and is actively being worked on. drhonk and I worked on this all day and are tired.
Modded Recovery Binary for the SGS4G:
CWM 126.96.36.199 SGS4G Edition Beta 3
I will not request this to be added to RM until it is FINAL. Please do not attempt to contact Koush to have it added; I will just ask him to remove it. This is only to keep you guys tied over for now.
BIG BIG THANK YOUR to drhonk for keeping my ass working on this. LOL
Also Big thanks to Koush for helping us troubleshoot things.
