ClockworkMod Recovery - Modified for Motorola Xoom



OK, so this recovery will skip /data/media (Internal storage) when performing nandroid backups and also when you perform a factory reset.

This means that we can now perform nandroid backups without backing up our internal media and removing it everytime you want to do a backup.

Thanks to Bigrushdog and MadIndustries for helping out with the concept of the solution for skipping /data/media.
Also thanks to Koush and all the other developers that have contributed to clockworkmod, without you guys the android world would be completely different.
Thanks also to everyone in #xoom that tested this.

The source code for all changes etc are available through the github repository. The two other projects that have been modified to make this recovery possible can also be viewed through my github account.


Even though this recovery has been tested, I am not liable for any loss of data or any damages done by this recovery.

==============================================
General Notes

When I refer to /data/media, this is the same as /sdcard when the xoom is booted into honeycomb. So any data that is stored in here should be untouched by this recovery.

If you encounter a problem with the filesystem on /data like it has become corrupt, place a blank file called "eraseData" (without the quotes) in the clockworkmod folder on your external sdcard. This will revert to the old way of formatting /data. NOTE: by doing this you will lose everything that you have in /data/media.

Versioning of recovery images:
At the moment I don't have a version number as such, instead each recovery image is timestamped in the format of DDMMYY-HHYY. So the file recovery-solarnz-120511-2030.img was produced on 12 May 2011 at 8:30 PM. This versioning is also shown in recovery when it starts.

==============================================

Downloads

SLOW DOWN AND RELAX
Make sure you download the correct version depending on how you want to flash. I have seen at least two xooms bricked now because they have tried to flash the zip file through fastboot.

Recovery Zip (solarnz-R4c-100611-1150) FLASHED THROUGH CWM
MD5: 1ad409db4030635734b27df02b7e7c1a

Recovery Image (solarnz-R4c-100611-1150) FLASHED THROUGH FASTBOOT
MD5: 20575d4b62bf697f77abca9093877ea3

==============================================

Installation Instructions

Method 1 Flashing through CWM
Quote:

Download the recovery zip file

Place the recovery zip on the sdcard where clockworkmod can read it.

Reboot into recovery using "adb reboot recovery" or any other method

In recovery, select flash zip from sdcard and select the recovery zip you downloaded

Sit back and relax while recovery flashes the new recovery and reboots into it.

Method 2 Without CWM
Quote:

Download the recovery image (not the zip file)

Pull up your command prompt, then

Code:
adb reboot bootloader
fastboot flash recovery recovery-solarnz-XXXXXX-XXXX.img
fastboot reboot
Let your Xoom boot up. Then to check out your shiny new recovery,

Code:
adb reboot recovery

Also, you can grab Rom Manager or QuickBoot from the market for easy access to recovery.

==============================================

  3.2.0.0 (R4c-100611-1150)

might be a stupid question but just to clarify: we would obviously not want to flash any recoveries in rom manager thus not having any need for rom manager at at this point correct?

Rom manager is still nice as you can quickly reboot to recovery etc from it. It also allows you to select the operation to do in recovery and then restart it will automatically restart and perform the action.
If you flash recovery from Rom Manager, you will end up with the official 3.0.2.5 recovery from Koush that doesn't contain the method of skipping /data/media

No difference, BRD used this modified 3.2.8 in his first step on that thread. But this will be the go-forward recovery from now on.
