Hi guys,

At this moment, I know this is kind of extended version of the stock recovery which we have access to.

It enables us to install custom ROM based of stock ROM only. The rest, we still need to have unlocked bootloader.

We can also make snapshot of the phone which enables us to restore to it.

Ok, here is my misery lol
1. When we flash ROM, we will lose root. We can use this recovery to gain root by using the recovery option, yes? However, it won't work if we flash other ROM, could it be older (GB) or newer (ICS).

2. When it says snapshot, I am assuming it is a full one, which includes all the apps? And it will saves to the virtual sdcard?

Thank you.

all right i think busybox is wanted to flash the recovery...? anyway i get it..
Someone can confirm backup and restore is ok...? because i have a ray too and when i flash the first release of CWM by qhanguut the backup was ok but not the restore...

Also, thanks for your work dude

@hello_hello : you don't loose root when you flash a rom. just when you flash stock firmware... also yes, the backup is save on your sdcard with your system "root" access

I found a minor problem: the timestamp created by nandroid isn't correct.
It's something like "1970-04-06.18.58.53" now.

Known issue, it also happens with the recoveries in Arakmar's ICS and DooM's GB Advanced Stock Kernels (kernels with recovery - we already had recovery in one form ) it's a device thing

anyway, nice work tommyrumbler

If I have this system "root" access, does that mean I can restore it when I flash a new firmware? Or just it has to be the current rooted firmware only?

I think I get it. It simply means ROM backup. With this we can flash or mess with the system eg it's app etc without worry as we can restore it.
