I fixed recovery for the Continuum users so that you have your own button mappings. It isn't integrated into the kernel yet, but I'm going to attempt to get that fully working (I have it partially working atm). Until that is fixed, you get the update.zip method for CWM. So, to accomplish this, you'll need to download two things. First, you need the update.zip file, which is placed on the root of the SDCard (/sdcard/update.zip) and the second item is the recovery kernel, which is flashed via Odin (v1.3). It is now integrated into the kernel and it has been updated to the EC09 kernel. This package will flash both recovery and kernel (so you don't loose CWM when the system boots). Note that if you are still on DL17, you should use the archive packages below. What you will need is this file, and you will want to flash it via Odin (or extract it and use Heimdall).

Open Odin, click the PDA button and browse to and select the continuum_recovery.tar.md5 I400_CWM.tar.md5 file that you downloaded. Remove the battery from your phone, and hold down the volume down button while plugging in the USB cable that is attached to your computer. Make sure you have the drivers installed, if not, you'll need to install them before you continue. Flash the file by clicking start if the phone is detected in Odin. Once it completes successfully, all you need to do is boot to recovery and apply sdcard/update.zip and you'll be in CWM. I decided upon black background with cyan text. This can still be changed if you wish, but I like it

Here are your button mappings:
Camera button/Grip sensor - Select Item (applies to cwm and stock recovery)
Volume Up/Down - Scroll up/down in the list (applies to cwm and stock recovery)
Power Button - Select Item
Menu Button - Does nothing
Home Button - Go Back
Back Button - Go Back
Search Button - Hide Text

I'm still trying to figure out how to get buttons to show up for the touchkeys. For now, they're blank, so just press in the approximate location on the screen for them. We may or may not be able to get buttons there at some point. Also, when you initially boot to recovery, there will be a message about update.zip being gone. Ignore the message as it seems to be a bug. As long as you copied the update.zip from this thread to your SDCard, you should be fine. Enjoy.

If you like my work, feel free to donate to me. Alternatively, sign up for Dropbox via my referral link Also, remember that none of this would really be possible without the generosity of DroidXcon, so you could donate to him as well.

I'm going to update the update.zip soon then as well to the latest CWM 3.x that we have for the Fascinate as well. Then, maybe look into replacing stock recovery again and hoping it works this time.
