all credit goes to original CWM author koush and all its contributors. but they have no responsibility for this CWM-based Recovery. use this CWM-based Recovery at your own risk.

this CWM-based Recovery can write raw MTD partition such as kernel, boot, and recovery on RK3188, RK3066, RK2928, RK2926, RK2918, and RK2906 devices without any problem. this can be installed without Windows.

if you want to install zip with edify script which writes something to raw MTD partition, you have to use update-binary and/or flash_image included in this CWM-based Recovery image.

please see my site for detail.

* about tools to make device specific image

you can use any tools which can be used to make custom rom for Rockchip devices. I'm using rkunpack, rkcrc, unpackbootimg, and mkbootimg.

if you don't know how to make custom rom for Rockchip devices, please ask google. many developers are already making custom rom for Rockchip devices, many information is already floating around.

if you want to know how to install CWM, please read "how to install" page on my site, and try "from root shell" method.

if you want to know about these tools, I'll add more information including them on my site. but it will be done little by little.
and I think here is not the best place to talk about other topics. please try search box on XDA, or google.

regards,

Thanks alot for info! I'll try 'from root shell' method. Seems like the easiest way.

How do i boot into CWM if stuck at boot?

I know I can do it with 'reboot'->recovery with reboot-app in finless 1.5. But I've been troubled with freeze at boot sometimes with no other option than to reflash rom.

I only have a MK806. it has a button to boot recovery and bootloader. but sorry I don't know about other device...
if you are sure there is no button, then you need to flash some misc.img with USB flash tool.
sorry, I'm busy a little. please search about RKAndroidTool for RK3066 on google.

backup will be named as "1970-01-01.xx.xx.xx" on (at least) MK806 and MK808B.
I'll investigate it. for now please rename it from PC or any explorer app. it's just a directory name on SD card.
