Default XOOM2/Xyboard BOOTSTRAP 11-16-12

This is a custom recovery, based off the Bootstrap recovery method originally from Koush
ALPHA!!!!

A Big thanks goes to the guys who have help test this, nchantmnt, taquion12, HussX, without them this would not have been possible (because I myself donít own a xoom2/xyboard)
And a big shout out to the gentleman that brought this charge mode type of hijack to my attention luxxx123.
Also thanks to tenfar for his contribution to the Android communities

This project is being retired, i will give you all what i have so far but know that is it NOT 100% and will never be

This is a custom one off bootstrap, it works the way it does, remember im NOT going to be able to continue development of it, and im sorry if you dont like what i have so far, you are welcome to not use it.

HOW TO USE:
install apk,
open app
press install recovery
Allow SU permission
if everything goes as planed you will see a "success" toast
now press power off,
PRESS and HOLD all three keys to enter the Boot Options, using volume down navigate to BPTools, then volume up to select
You will boot into TWRP.
you can flash zips, and a backup, and all the other normal things, however DO NOT ATTEMPT TO RESTORE A BACKUP you wipe your /system and be left with nothing there.
this is HIGHLY recommended to not be used a primary solution.

Thank you all for your help over the month, and i will as always answer what ever questions you guys have.

on my mz609 8.2: wipe cache work, wipe dalvik cache work, wipe battery stats work.
wipe data/factory reset not tested, first i want to make a backup : D
flash zip don't work, backup don' t work, (i sent e-mail with last_log)

this work without one xoom2 is already a great result. do not stop

Very cool - once I get the ICS update and root, this is the first thing I am going to do.

Thanks!

wipe dalvik & cache works
backup and restore doesnt work and flashing zip doesnt work.
also factory reset doesn't work.
seems to be a mounting issue. unable to mount /sdcard and /cache.
will send you log via email.
do you need the partition table? don't know if there is a difference between xoom2 and xyboard e.g. between the models' tables

edit: log basicly consists of not being able to find/mount /cache /sdcard /userdata

edit 2: ok, sent you my logfile, seems like recovery can mount /cache on boot but not remount it after wiping it.

cheers

please try this one and report back
xoom2recovery_v0.0.3.apk - 2.29 MB

also need this one tested, and please report back which verision you are testing, refer to v0.0.X on the apk name
i think 0.0.4 should have a lot of things fixed.

but please feel free to test both,
xoom2recovery_v0.0.4.apk - 2.29 MB

ok guys im am seeing a problem. i need info. and some imgs.
need xoom2 (aka pasteur) , xyboard (aka fleming) and a xoom ME if anyone has one.
i need the following from them
please send me the model number mz609 and the details like "its the verizion droid xyboard" or the xoom media edition. the only img i have is of the pasteur which is the Xoom2 and i think its causing some issues, but i am not sure because im not getting enough detail on what deice you have and what the errors are, i cant remember what tablet each of you have some friendly reminders when you email or post would be great.
thanks



. that said i need the boot img and the reocvery img.
do this
in terminal
su
cat /proc/partitions
find the recovery and boot img block and then do this
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk1p11 of=/sdcard/boot.img
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk1p12 of=/sdcard/recovery.img

subsituting the mmcblk1pXX for the correct block.

I have an MZ607 Xoom2 ME. I would be willing to help-I am rooted and on the ICS OTA, but this project is a bit over my head. I don't have fast boot files, for instance.

However, if I can be of assistance let me know - I'd love to see a custom recovery for this device!
