Red face [RECOVERY] CWM for the SK4G. Enjoy!

Special thanks goes out to everyone who tested for me.

I do not have the device, so I rely heavily on testers to report any bugs.


Here is CWM for the SK4G.

You will need to modify your stock recovery binary to be able to use CWM.
Kernel Devs can also compile CWM into their kernel by extracting the update.zip and building it into their initramfs.
[B]
To replace your stock recovery binary with the modified binary:
download this file
DEAD. USE BALI KERNEL
Exatract and take the recovery binary file inside of it and use root explorer or adb push the file to /system/bin.
DO NOT delete the current one there, or rename any files.
Just overwrite it.
I would however, recommend getting Android Commander from www.androidcommander.com It's a lot easier, and a lot more useful.
[B]
CWM Final
DEAD. USE BALI KERNEL
Place in the root of your SD.

You can now use Quick Boot from the market, or adb reboot recovery to boot into CWM

I have sent Koush the device tree to have the official update.zip supported within Rom Manager.


UNTESTED:
You can also take the contents from the update.zip and replace the contents that are in noobnl's recovery rerouter/root.
Again, I haven't tested that due to not having the device.

Krylon... quick question... how much effort would it be to make a "reorient kernal" similar to wat the captivate had so it could use i9000 roms. Since this phone is basically a galaxy s...
