I take no responsibility for any harm that comes to your phone as a result of applying this mod.

Official Clockwork Mod Recovery 5.0.2.6

Note that ROM manager support isn't currently complete. ROM downloads etc should all be working fine, but it needs to be updated to properly flash the recovery. At the moment it uses a method called fakeflash which will load the latest recovery from within whatever recovery you have installed. All other aspects are working fine though.

Download:
Installation Instructions (upgrading - root explorer method):
  • Using any file explorer which is able to remount as writeable (such as root explorer), browse to the /cust_backup directory and remount it as writeable
  • Navigate to the image directory and backup up the current recovery by renaming it to something like recovery.bak, or _recovery.img
  • Rename the downloaded recovery to recovery.img and copy to the image directory.

Installation Instructions (new install):
  • Unplug any usb connection and turn the phone completely off
  • Whilst holding both the volume + and volume - keys hold the power button to turn the device on. Let go when you see a pink/purple screen.
  • Attach the usb cable to your computer and wait until a few usb mass storage devices are detected and mounted. Look for one that has just one directory called 'image' in it. Navigate into this directory and you'll see recovery.img etc.
  • (optional) Rename recovery.img to recovery_backup.img
  • copy the new recovery.img to image, unmount the mass storage device (safely remove in windows) and then pull the battery out to turn the phone off.
  • Hold volume + and power to boot to recovery.
  • Install any custom rom
  • Install rom manager and update to latest recovery

That's cool! Is it still possible to boot it with stock kernel, or you did modifications to recovery_kernel?

You can't flash the boot images with cwm i thibk. Download and add this recovery img in /cust_backup/image folder its done.

And thanks stockwell. Haptic now work in recovery mode. Blue text version is much better than yellow

The backup will then restore but just be aware that it will also revert to the recovery you had when the backup was made.

Stockwell, this is for old backups and for the ones made already with the new recovery? We still have to make these alterations everytime we want to restore?

Sorry I meant to reword that since its a little unclear. This is only for backups made with an old version of recovery. All new backups will name it boot instead of cust.

You probably need to change your anyKernel script as well to use /boot instead of /cust for the boot.img, if I did not misunderstood.

The recovery kernel is the kernel I use for Miui, but with the framebuffer set to 16-bit colour.

There's nothing specifically added to the kernel to make it work with the recovery other than that, but if you do manage to get it to boot on your pro then the display will be weird since its trying to output 16-bit colour to a 32-bit colour framebuffer.

It requires only a small modification to get the recovery working in 32-bit colour though, so if you do get it to boot then I can help you get it fixed up.

Ah thanks yeah I will need to change it. I'll try and get it done now, the new version of AnyKernel should be compatible both with the new and old versions of recovery.

Edit: Modified version of AnyKernel is on my github. I haven't tried it out but it should work fine on new and old recoveries.
