Default [smirkit-2.8][06/02]install recovery+bootloader COTR or TWRP

6/02/13This update has been provided by Ichigo™
Quote:
TWRP has just been updated to 2.4.4.0, here is a new smirkit v.2.8 that contains this latest TWRP release.
everyone who uses this should thank Ichigo when you see his post's. he has taken on the task to keep this updated for your use as me nor webdroidmt no longer have this device. Thanks Ichigo!

download the new smirkit app here
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/...33/Smirkit.apk

install the app, click install! no need to reboot to recovery and flash like before.

use smirkit as you normally would. this would be a new installer of smirkit

some info to take note of.

The advantages of an app over a flashable zip are:
1)You can install smirkit within the app instead of having to reboot into recovery
2)It will install smirkit on alt roms
3)It can automatically remove smirkit if the user wants instead having to manually do it.

Two things the users should know:
1) They may get a warning when installing something via smirkit. I'm not sure why it shows, but they can just ignore the warning. Everything still works fine.
2)They may find a smirkit folder on their sdcard. They shouldn't delete this folder. It's only 30bytes.




______________________________
smirkit now works on all roms! stock rooted users, make sure you install busybox from the market and run the app to install busybox first.


this update includes sblood86's new cannibal open touch recovery. read below for new install instructions!
release thread here



thread cleaned. I wanted to lighten the load and provide a way of flashing up-to-date files so nobody gets left behind. as cwm gets updated, I will update this to include it. in this update is the new twrp 2.1.1. I never got a response from him officially, but u guys need a way so I'm leaving it up until he says otherwise. I do beg u to visit his site anyway if u use this so he gets his views/clicks. if you can spare some change donate to them.

I wanna thank kinfauns for rewriting the way the scripts now run, to verify the md5 before flashing the Bootloader or Recovery. this guy does a lot behind the scenes, so thank this man often! without his help that twrp update wouldn't have came so soon. if u have time, I highly suggest reading his guide to familiarize yourself with the kindle fire. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=23747567


credits to:
hashcode - updating fff to v1.4a with a boot mode selection.. awesome!
dees_troy - updating twrp and squashing an old issue that I'm so glad is fixed!
sblood86 - providing support on our kindles and helping me very regularly lol.
jrummy - developers of root browser
doomlord and team utterchaos - for providing us with support and updates to our cwmtouch!
pokey9000 - for creating the bootloader on all of our devices!
Kinfaun - for assisting me with writing the scripts and method.
teamwin - for starting us off with twrp
webdroidmt - staying involved and updating smirkit since i no longer have this device!
Ichigo - taking on the task of updating smirkit since me and webdroidmt no longer have this device! (thank this man when you can)

you NEED root, busybox, and a custom recovery to do this. (any recovery u can flash a zip with)

______________________install instructions___________________________

[*]firstly, grab terminal emulator and busybox if you don't already have it off the market.

[*]now, download goomanager from the market

[*]in goomanager, tap browse all files, then devs/smirkis/otter/smirkit and download smirkit-installer
-needs to be updated. use dropbox link for now

OR
[*]download smirkit-installer directly here (thank Ichigot for this update):


http://db.tt/8ZLuCqmE

[*]flash smirkit-installer.zip in recovery using goomanager, or manually

______________________how to use smirkit____________________________

[*]boot back into the OS and open terminal emulator.

[*]first, type SU then hit enter

[*]now, type smirkit then hit enter


it should end up like this:


then this:



from here, make a selection from the menu.

enjoy!


[*]WARNING: IF YOU FLASH A NEW ROM IT WILL REMOVE THE FILES NECESSARY FOR THIS TO WORK. JUST REFLASH THIS IN RECOVERY AGAIN OR ASK YOUR ROM DEVELOPER TO SUPPORT THE NEW SMIRKIT IN THEIR ROM![*]

u can use rom manager to do backups n restores n installs, but reboot to recovery option does not work in rom manager.

so install cwm, and firefirefire bootloader

If using CM7 with TWRP installed, can this be used to just simply swich from TWRP to CWM. I'm sure there are many looking for this?
