Project Open Cannibal presents...
Cannibal Open Touch v2.1 for Asus Nexus 7





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.

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

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!

The Cannibal Open Touch App for Android (separate from this recovery image, which is fully functional on all devices) is *NOT* functional on Nexus 7 devices running Android 4.2 or later. A fix is being investigated.

Flashing instructions:
1. Download the Cannibal Open Touch recovery image.
2. Reboot your device to bootloader mode (adb reboot bootloader)
3. Flash the image with fastboot (fastboot flash recovery /path/to/recovery.img)
4. Reboot to recovery mode
5. PROFIT!

WARNING!
This has only been tested on the non-3g models (grouper/nakasi); while it is hightly probable this will work on the nakasig we cannot confirm this at this time (at best I would expect assert errors with rom zips).

Yeah Drew (the other dev on the project) wrote in that warning there; it's referring to the Android control application that he did. Allows you to easily change the persistent settings from within android instead of recovery (including but not limited to the user defined backup paths). The recovery does work in 4.2, the app does not.

To set user defined backups you could use the app in 4.1 or older than upgrade the settings will remain in place; or manually create a file in sdcard/cotrecovery/ with the title .userdefinedbackups and the sdcard folder you would like backups saved to: for example if you wanted to add rom manager compatibility you would want your backups to be in '/sdcard/clockworkmod/' so in the .file you would simply write 'clockworkmod' without the quotes.

Oh see, that is not a big deal at all. I would be willing to give that a shot, didn't even know there was an app Thanks for the detailed reply, I'm sure it will help others as well.

Yes the recovery works w/ 4.2 roms the only issue is the app that Drew did not being able to communicate with the sdcard properly in 4.2 (this is not related to the recovery itself).

Themes we could use more of; there is an outline of them on our forums and on github (nexus 7 is of course the jb-800x1200 branch)
