Project Open Cannibal presents...
Cannibal Open Touch v2.1 for Amazon Kindle Fire (first generation)





About Cannibal Open Touch:
Cannibal Open Touch is the next generation of custom recoveries. Jam-packed with cool and useful features, it can handle just about anything you can throw at it.

Warning: Does NOT currently support KitKit

Main Features:
1. Theme support
2. Touch screen button controls!
3. GooManager support!
4. Advanced Backup
5. Delete old backups!
6. Persistent settings
7. User-defined backup locations!
8. ADB Sideload
9. Touchscreen calibration
10. Backported “retouch binaries” patch for ICS/JB compatibility
11. Backported extfs tools for better ICS/JB management

Why the name Cannibal Open Touch?
Because we can. The name also embodies everything that Cannibal Open Touch is. It is no longer just a variant of ClockworkMod Recovery, it is it's own recovery by itself. Combining features from ClockworkMod 5, Team UtterChaos' Sony Xperia recovery, AmonRa 3.0.6, Xionia CWMA and a heaping helping of our own special enhancements it is truly revolutionary.

What to do when an error occurs:
DO NOT simply say "xxxx doesn't work" as that is highly unhelpful and will probably be ignored. Instead, post the recovery log! To grab a log when an error occurs, simply open a terminal (or command prompt if on Windows), "cd" to an easily accessible directory and execute:

Code:
adb pull /tmp/recovery.log
Paste the log as an attachment (don't paste the text inside, as it can be quite lengthy), or paste it on pastebin.com.

WARNING!
If you are upgrading from a previous version of Cannibal Open Touch you must delete the settings.ini file located in the cotrecovery folder on your sdcard!

Flashing instructions:
Flashing instructions can be found at the download link below.

Just made a nandroid & it seemed faster than 2.02, maybe placebo. Didn't flash any roms , as I don't have anything new to flash...yet! I like the overall simplicity and the functions in plain language terms.

Couple of questions, where can I read up on how to install a theme? Is that something that the COTR android app does or will do? Also, as stated in the OP, I deleted my current .ini file but can I still restore older COTR nandroids, say from 2.02 with this version? I'm figuring yes but want to be sure.

Thanks again for an alternative to TWRP. Btw, when the skull logo first came up, I thought I got a virus or something. LOL Looks cool.

I can't imagine what would effect speed but cool

Previous backups should work just fine yes as for themes we don't have a lot yet but there is an outline for creating them on both github and the POC forums. The apps capabilities are limited to Drew's java capabilities as I find java to be; well, it's unsavory, we'll leave it at that

To that end I'm not sure but maybe.

I assume this replaces twrp. Would I install this along side twrp? Will firefirefire offer a choice of recovery?

Not at this time (no pun intended); requires an offset which varies a bit by location so it's a bit of a hack. Haven't done it yet but we may add a function for it in the future.

Thanks for your reply, obviously it would be nice for proper timestamping of the nandroids, as now it reads 5 hours ahead for me.. But even without that, I've previously been enjoying using COTR and this new version with themes gives me a little something extra to play with.

Started messing around with the themes I d/l from the git, took the devildroid one and substituted the devildroid background out with the droid jellybean machine that's been floating around the web. Simple but looks pretty nice, I like green and gives me a better idea how to work with the themes going forward. Gonna' work with the HTML color picker to see what other combos I can come up with.

Btw, just for the heck of it, I updated my smirkit with COTR 2.1 and flashed it instead of fast booting it.

Anyway, thanks again for this update.
