  • Beware, some of your earlier Backups might just show md5sum mismatch. [happened with me] So just keep earlier recovery update.zip in /sdcard, just in case.
  • The backup format for this recovery is .tar and not .img, this is done [not by me, by koush and CWM developers ] to reduce size of each backup. So, backup generated by using this version are not supported by earlier Recovery releases. But this release can use earlier releases' backup.

[Disclaimer]

I am not to be held liable/responsible if you damage your phone by following/not following this thread.



[Acknowledgement]
  • koush for his CWM bootable recovery sources.
  • Steam recovery sources by SteamMOD for touch input related modifications.
  • k1chy for testing this touch based CWM recovery on his ideosX6 device. (Since my device is bricked right now, I can not test it )



P.S.: I have purposefully kept same format as for my older post of CWM Recovery v3, so that it will be helpful for any new user to grasp everything at single place.

Well I am not the right person to tell that, as I am not the developer of CWM recovery. Its Koush.
I have just ported it to our device.

Anyway to tell you few points that I found out:
  • Major change for our device is support for backup in tar format. (Size reduction of the backup files)
  • Support for firmware update check and its installation. (If you did ota update and phone restarted in recovery for the same, I guess) - NOT for our device
  • Support for zip installation from internal SDcard. (Avalable in few devices) - NOT for our device
  • Few comsetic changes during backup and recovery that you might have noticed.
  • And few changes in recovery log file.

You can find these out by yourself by looking at sources modifications at: https://github.com/CyanogenMod/andro...s/gingerbread/

Thumbs up Initial Test
Ok...set this up on my device:

1. Backup works fine (in tar format now)
2. Restore Works fine
3. Format/Wipes work fine
4. Didnt see much difference from functionality standpoint though...

Will definitely update if something fails or creates a problem

Thanks a lot for this....

This recovery's backup is in tar file format for non boot partitions, as its mentioned in few posts before. So the backup created by this re overy can not be used with earlier versions of recovery.

And for adb, is your device detected when it is booted into any ROM. I mean have installed drivers correctly.


For USB mounting, select mount USB storage in mounting menu. And remain in that menu untill you are done with USB usage.

OK that was one info i might have missed .. about the .tar format! thanks for stressing it again

but about the other two advices .. i have my phone detected by all other roms ..yes ...thats how i could fix its looping at corrupted boot animation yesterday?(mentioned in another post ) so i guess its some other issue .. since its not worked with the combined recovery version too (stock and v5.0.x.x) ..any guess whats happening ??

about mounting and unmounting .. i stayed in the "mounted" state for 10 minutes and still it didnt show up on the pc. but with other clockwork i guess its again urs 0ne with orange colour i get this working so easily .

thanks for immediate response and thanks for these great releases i really like the details shown (each file name its backing up and restoring ) really cool :P

I really dont know the reason behind the problem. Try re-installing any of the latest recovery.
