LOL. You translate the part about writing bcb with all zeros as being the same as quoting Linux code from a script in CWM? I guess you read the posts the way you want to read them. I'm finished with this discussion.

Actually if you'd gone back and read it you would see it links to this script here: https://github.com/fat-tire/android_...ecoveryboot.sh

Amazing how much you miss when you don't actually read something.

And that's not Linux code. That's a bash script. Big difference.

I am appropriately ashamed. I did not follow fattire's link. Mainly because I understand zip about c. I apologize to mateorod for cluttering his effort. But leave it to you to put the barb in. I hope in the future you can resist the temptation.

Well if you didn't act like you were sitting high on the horse, maybe the responses you receive when you're wrong, wouldn't be so harsh.

I don't get any harsh responses except from you. Why is that? Are you the only one who sees my high riding?

Edit: Fattire, I apologize for cluttering your thread with this nonsense. I am finished. HacDan, do not answer my retorical question.

Hey, thanks Dan. I was able to quickly implement that change on the way out the door, and it has indeed stabilized the size issue. Which will, I believe, make the fix functional, although not quite finished. I had tried importing some commands from the omap config file that were set up like that (specifically the rewrite to bcb after an update.zip is applied) but the way I was doing it as breaking the rest of the function.

So now I just need to winnow out whatever is writing the boot data and encrypted characters. I'll do it tonight. Thanks for the tip.

I will say it looks pretty cool, due to the framework tonsofquestions (I believe) put together. Very easy to put in.

My plan is to only change the default to recovery behavior in the event of a missing bcb file, since the other two eventualities (too small or empty, if memory serves) can be addressed by the menu option. Hopefully that lets us boot into recovery from the ROM, because as it is I can still only get to recovery through cyanoboot.

Yeah-- gotta make sure that's the case-- don't want to get into a bootloop situation in the other direction, so make sure the menu will override the behavior if the file isn't found. (It should... but if it did, wouldn't that let you get out of a busted recovery loop now?) You might need to move things around to give the menu priority. I can't remember :P

Disregard i was being impatient after an hour or so of pulling what little hair
i have left out and wearing google out i found what i needed to know.



I was wanting to change the menu to what's on my nook instead of
just mmc or sd.
I have compiled a few apps for ubuntu when I couldn't find a deb package have compiled cm from source a couple of times but im not sure on the build tools or how to configure the build for this .
Im trying to learn a bit instead of asking for someone to do it for me
but im not sure how to configure the build or which config file to use.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you're just asking how to compile the uboot, this is where I learned it.

Git clone the verygreen bootloader, but make sure to switch to the cb branch to get the latest changes.

Edit: Just saw your update. I was responding to an email alert that just had your original post.
