Clockwork Based Recovery

I RECOMMEND USING THE TOUCH RECOVERY! (click here)

Disclaimer
I'm not responsible for any damages to your phone. Neither am I responsible, if the phone becomes alive, runs away, dominates or kills you ;P
Also, if you don't know how to flash this, then you probably shouldn't... just saying...
All this work is done "blind", since I don't have a note, so be thankful to the testers, who were willing to sacrifice their devices

How to install/update
- see post #2

Thanks to
utkanos - for help with the framebuffer
DAGr8, Johnsondr80, lpsi2000, BLOWNCO - for testing my crap
koush and anyone who worked/works on cwm/cm - without them this wouldn't have been possible
and possibly lots of other people who did important android work, but are sadly forgotten

Good luck, and happy flashing.
Please report bugs with as much detail as possible, and preferably in a separate paragraph

How to install

Odin (this will increase the flash counter)
- put your phone into download mode
- in odin choose pda, and select the .tar.md5 file and flash

Note: there are several guides how to use odin on xda

Alternative (this will NOT increase the flash counter but is harder to do)
- get adb (from the android sdk for example)
- root your phone
-> there are several ways how to archive that, the easiest is probably flashing a rooted system.img using Odin (flashing system does not increase the counter)
- start your phone normally and activate USB debugging (Settings, Applications, Development or so, enable USB debugging)
- extract the recovery.img from either the Odin.tar.md5 or from the CWM.zip and put it onto your sdcard
- connect the phone to your computer, dont mount/share the sdcard
- run the following commands:
Code:
> adb shell
~ su
# dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p22
<some output>
# exit
~ exit
- the path (/sdcard/recovery.img) might need to be adjusted
- NOTE: this can brick your phone, if you have typos, make sure you know what you are doing

Updating CWM
- download the update.zip from the CWM link and put it on your sdcard
- reboot to recovery and install it, on the next reboot you should have the new version running
- alternatively all the above can also be used to update

Back to stock
- get the correct stock recovery.img (the at&t one should also work for telus, Bell and rogers, otherwise look for the correct one)
- use the Odin or Alternative to flash the stock recovery img back

I can confirm sdcards issue is fixed. Once again - amazing work! Much appreciated.

I agree the fonts are really small and hard to see and while we're on that subject - are there any plans to port the touch interface?
