    • if sd-ext is mounted then it will execute /sd-ext/userinit.sh & shell scripts in /sd-ext/userinit.d/ folder
    • also scripts in /data/local/ will be executed... it will execute /data/local/userinit.sh & shell scripts in /data/local/userinit.d/ folder

Features of my custom touch edition recovery
base recovery sources are from koush/CyanogenMod/FreeXperia Team... i have added more features to it and my team mate, Napstar, has worked on adding the Touch capabilities...




[ features ]
  • revamped layout for recovery menu (to improve navigation) [renamed few options and changed their order]
  • changed "wipe data/factory reset" option to just "factory reset", and detailed the partitions which will be wiped
  • added reboot options
    • reboot into system
    • reboot into recovery
    • reboot into fastboot mode
  • some modification in "Partition SDCard" section:
    • put up a confirmation to warn the user that this option will wipe sdcard
    • added ability to select filesystem when creating new layout
  • add confirmation to "backup" option in Nandroid menu... it used to keep getting pressed by mistake and start making backups immediately... now it will ask u before starting backup
  • removed tons of "NO"s from some menus...


[ how to enter recovery ]
  1. when the device is booting the new bootlogo will be shown, keep watching the notification LED
  2. when the LED turns BLUE keep pressing the BACK button
  3. you will now enter my custom recovery


[ how to navigate in recovery ]
  • the recovery is touch edition so controls are on screen
  • if someone prefers to use hardware buttons the the mapping is as follows:
    • BACK button -- to go BACK in menu
    • HOME button -- to SELECT menu item
    • VOLUP button -- to navigate UP in menu
    • VOLDN button -- to navigate DOWN in menu

I think that the only ONE reason that users still stay on stock kernel - it better battery life :C

cuz in all other things your kernel is GREAT! I don't see any more reasons.

Are you saying that Doom's kernel has better battery life than the stock SE kernel?
