I modified the official 1.2 update to allow CWM to flash them. You can use these to upgrade to 1.2 or to return to stock.

There are two files. One replaces CWM with the stock recovery (good for going back to stock). The other doesn't replace CWM (but will replace uboot).

Other than that they are identical to the update from B&N.

Please note neither one of these are rooted yet.

So just to make sure, I could use the one zip to return to full stock but with the 1.2 update? Also will this work if I have CM7 and CWM on my emmc? So reboot into CW, format \system and \data then flash the update-nc-stock-1.2-signed.zip, then Reboot. At that point, I should be 100% 1.2 stock, sound about right?

I thinking about returning to stock and just run CM7 for my SD if this is an options.


Thanks,

Derek.

Assuming you haven't fooked up any paritioning by using the "dual-boot" stuff you can return to 100% stock by doing the folllowing:
  1. Download the update-nc-stock-1.2-signed.zip above
  2. Flash the zip with CWM (either from emmc or sdcard)
  3. Use CWM to factory reset the device (wipe /data and /cache)
  4. Reboot into 100% stock froyo

If you have modified your partitions this will not work.

I'd like to modify this so it just installs to my dual boot partition.

I've done this before with flashing kernels, but there are more partitions here to take care of.

I figure if I'm going to change the updater script to mount the correct block partitions then I should also have it wipe /data and /cache on the secondary partition.

Any ideas on syntax?

Once we have a rooted version I'll probably check it out for fun.

But then I'm stuck with stock froyo - I can't go back to CM7 after I've satisfied my curiosity, right?

Hmmm, have to think about that......then, again, maybe not.

Many thanks for these.

Please post MD5's of these so that we can be sure that the download was successful (some may want to store the file for later use).

Create a backup first.
