Default [bootloader][05-26] FFF 1.4A bugfixes + new look + recovery boot [.zip file size]

NEW BOOTLOADER INSTALL METHOD: FLASH.ZIP. SAFER. USE IN RECOVERY JUST LIKE ANY OTHER ROM .ZIP


This is an UPDATED version of FIREFIREFIRE by Pokey9000

CREDITS and THANKS GO TO:
- Pokey9000: For getting this going. Hard to dev at all w/o a way of getting to recovery.
- eldarerathis: Menu code was used from the Extended FIREFIREFIRE github
- Icemank121: All splash/menu screens


Version 1.5 of FIREFIREFIRE changes:
  • [1.5] Better handling for lower power / charging screen
  • [1.4a] Reprioritized the different boot options so that regardless of idme bootmode, the options chosen from the menu would be used first.
  • [1.4] Support for a single boot directly to Recovery for applying ROM updates, etc via "Reboot Recovery" menu in Android. Works with any recovery that is installed. All existing ROM devs need to update their BoardConfig.mk to support this by adding the following:
    TARGET_RECOVERY_PRE_COMMAND := "idme postmode 1;"
    Your builds will need to also have a working "idme" binary and the "libidme.so" lib for the reboot recovery option to work.

    Both of these are in the prebuilts of the device tree on github:
    https://github.com/KFire-Android/and...-11.0/prebuilt
  • Fixed Charging Mode which will pause the boot process and let the device charge if the current capacity is under 3%. If you connect it to the stock charger, the boot can proceed.[/B]
  • Added a Boot Menu which is accessed by pressing the power button after a the initial splash screen is displayed. You then press the menu button again to navigate through each option. If you wait after an option is highlighted, it will automatically be selected after a few seconds.:
    • Normal: Standard boot into your installed ROM
    • Recovery: Boot to recovery
    • Reset Boot Mode: This is a normal bootup but resets "idme bootmode" to 4000 for those that are stuck and can't access idme for whatever reason.

NOTES:
Currently the handling of the power button is a bit sloppy, takes 1-2 presses for it to register each press to navigate through the menu.


Download the recovery-flashable .zip file here:

v1.5 md5sum: 4e9d277a31a2a26d33156edf5abbf0e4
v1.4a md5sum: 419c53b922c963082454b14b7de75a90

Apply this flash.zip from recovery just like any other ROM or kernel .zip file. This is by far the safest way to upgrade your bootloader. It does a sha1sum check on the file before applying.

Really Nice update, it should avoid some people like me ever getting stuck in fastboot, something I did not understood reading the OP.

Suggestion: in a future version, could you make a count down decreasing the selecting marks "--"?
Since it can easily take you out of fastboot, ROM makes could also add reboot to "bootloader".
