Default [Unlocked Only][RECOVERY][2011-11-14] Custom CWM-based Recovery 5.0.2.7-atrix5

This is a modified CWM-based recovery for the Motorola Atrix 4G. It is based on my own custom code forked from the CyanogenMod team's recovery. The major changes I have made include full support for dual SD cards, support for webtop partitions (SD card and internal) and changes to Nandroid backup/restore for this phone's additional partitions.

Some highlights include:
  • Dual SD card support
  • ADB support
  • USB Mass Storage support
  • Nandroid additions/changes
  • ext3/4 formatting
  • Unified kernel for international users
  • Probably others

This recovery is only for UNLOCKED devices. It is intended to be flashed directly to the recovery partition. Additionally, I have an AT&T phone so that is the kernel I am using. I doubt the memory issue would matter in recovery mode but testing from UNLOCKED international users would be appreciated. UPDATE: Initial indications are it works fine on UNLOCKED international phones. Versions for different tegraparts have also been compiled. UPDATE 2: Unified kernel patch has been applied. Choose whatever color you prefer regardless of phone version!

UNLOCKED users can flash this recovery using:
Code:
moto-fastboot devices

moto-fastboot erase recovery

moto-fastboot flash recovery recovery-atrix5.img
Example from my phone:
Code:
$ moto-fastboot devices
TA20700KXH      fastboot

$ moto-fastboot erase recovery
            erasing 'recovery'... OKAY [  0.741s]

$ moto-fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
  sending 'recovery' (4780 KB)... OKAY [  0.490s]
            writing 'recovery'... OKAY [  0.544s]

Original ROM Manager installable zip thanks to SolidHelix. You must still be UNLOCKED to use them.

Source is here.

A few notes:
  • The capacitive buttons can be used to navigate as well. Back is back, search is select. Menu and home are up and down.
  • The "osh" partition is webtop. It is the largest by far and will take some time to backup. Nandroid is not frozen!
  • The "sd-ext" partition is an ext3/4 partition on your external SD card. Veterans will know this as apps2sd and data2sd from other phones. The only use I'm aware of on our phone currently is Sogarth's webtop2sd.

Thanks to:
  • Koush and the CM team for CWM
  • Everyone who has made unlocking the Atrix possible

Screenshots
Thanks to DarkSim2o9 for the following screenshots:
Known Issues
  • sd-ext (webtop2sd) is inadvertently wiped on "Wipe data/factory reset". Next version will make this optional. Fixed in -atrix2.

Miscellaneous
If you'd like ROM Manager to see this recovery as "official" you can try XCellPhoneSalesRep's suggestion posted here.
Alternately, you can try dcarpenter85's suggestion here.
For issues with recovery not sticking or crashing, see here:
Quote:
Thanks to mrinehart93 for pointing this out.

The system runs /system/etc/install-recovery.sh on boot with the stock rom. On boot it checks the recovery partition for some update and with CWM installed decides to reflash the stock recovery over it. Rename or delete the file and the CWM should stick.
Old versions
You can browse and download old versions here.

ok.. for some reason I can not enter recovery with Tenfar's or this CWM... I can enter it when plugged into AC using the Root Manager CWM.. Any ideas? I always get stuck at the "Entering Android Recovery Mode" screen and that is it... Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I had at one-point tried using the old version... after trying to flash the new version and having the problem. I flashed the new version I believe right after unlocking (first time flashing the CWM) It had never worked on my phone unless I used the ROM Manager version. I was hoping this would take care of the issue since I did the erase recovery and flashed this...

Hmm not sure I've experienced that. Do you have install-recovery.sh in /system/etc? Maybe it's conflicting

Very interested in this as well. The big problem (only problem iirc) with Tenfar's is its inability to properly backup and restore the PDS partition.

If this release gives us all of the features of the official CWM, I will be ecstatic!!!
