Im getting a nvflash error when trying to install the new clockwork.
It says check apx driver and usb cable. The drivers are already installed so Im thinking its the usb cable, but not sure.

the recovery's on a different partition, might make it a pain in the ass to access the touch drivers...

or he might just like the o2x more (everyone likes those Europeans more than us anymore)

Angry Touch Recovery

I'm just gonna throw this out there, just because I wanted to try, I flashed the O2x Touch Recovery to my G2x. Everything as far as the application goes worked, touch to select, ect. The only problem is when you ask it to do something, the mounts are wrong, naturally. What I'm getting at is that both devices use cwm 5020, obviously, mounts changed. How hard would it be to decompile both versions of 5020 and apply the differences to the new touch recovery app?

p.s. for those who wonder how I flashed touch to my G2x, I just swapped out the recovery images in the one-click nvflasher, pretty simple. when you're done, put back correct file, nvflash again.

It's all in the ram disk. Just swap out the vold.fstab in the ram disk. Recovery images are simply boot.imgs.

Interesting, because the differences are only 1 partition. And using the O2x CWM to wipe /system (iirc) would just wipe our internal SD. Ours is partition 7 theirs is partition 8, our partition 8 is the internal SD. Since the phones are 99% the same, it should be that simple. and I need to get up early... I do have one untested tool for decompiling a boot.img....


@Kairi: Can you mirror this on Dropbox? Or somewhere not blocked by my work? Wifi at home is down and I am just chewing away at my data with having to tether.

So, my idea worked? I'm not at home and since I'm a collision tech by trade, my boss don't like me playing with my phone. Volk, if you read this pm me and fill me in if you can. Thanks brother.
