I am posting this recovery on behalf of genokolar. No ads in the recovery for this version

Change log:
1. EXT4 support.
2. Large file system support (e.g. /data > 2G).
3. Updated reboot recovery mode.

To install (you need root):
1. Backup /cust_backup/image/recovery.img
2. Download, extract and place the recovery.img into /cust_backup/image/
3. Done.

To go to recovery:
1. Power off
2. Hold Vol+ and Power buttons to power on (hold both buttons UNTIL you see the recovery)

EDIT: If your phone won't boot with this recovery please try this. Credit to stockwell.

Does this backup the baseband firmware (or what stockwell mentioned that the Perfect Recovery didn't do before)?

No, my concern was actually that it DID backup both baseband and emmcboot.mbn, which could potentially brick if these files are corrupted on a bad restore.

This version still does this, though no one seems to have had this happen to them. I think since nandroid hashes the backups and checks them when restoring the problem only really would be if your phone was turned off while restoring, and even then bootloader mode might still work fine if those files are damaged.

Oh okay! I read your post about that but must have been confused on what you really meant.
