Default [Recovery & Root] T217S CWM & TWRP 2.7.0.0 (Unofficial)

Here is CWM recovery for the T217S. TWRP is in post #2.

Please report any bugs here in this thread. I don't have a T217 to test on, so I'm relying on your reports.

Please test and report if it you can/can't backup to the external sdcard. Please include in your report: what size sdcard and whether it is formatted exfat or fat32.

Internal card is mounted as /data/media. That's how things work now, I can't change that.

It takes a few seconds longer for CWM to boot than the stock recovery, so be patient.

Credits go to:
@ketut.kumajaya for tons of help with our previous recoveries and kernels
@hkjr for getting ketut to help
and of course Koush and the CyanogenMod team
Also, thanks to the brave guys in the Q & A thread who tested the earlier versions.

Instructions for ODIN (use T217S.CWM...recovery.tar.zip):
1. Download ODIN on your computer (just do a google search to find it...version 3.07 will work fine). http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2189539
2. Power off the device.
3. Restart in "Download Mode" by holding the "HOME" button, "Volume Down" and "Power" all at the same time (for about 5 seconds).
4. Hit the "Volume Up" to enter download mode.
5. Start the ODIN exe program.
6. Un-check Auto Reboot. See notes about ODIN below.
7. Connect the device via USB to your computer. Verify the device shows as "Added" in the Message box. If it doesn't show then you need the Samsung USB drivers (just install KIES to get them).
8. Select "PDA" then choose the recovery file you want to flash.
9. Hit "START" and wait for Odin to complete the flash. Should only take 10-15 seconds.
10. Restart to recovery mode to verify it works (Hold POWER, Volume UP, and the HOME button all at the same time. When you see the Samsung Logo, let go of the POWER button, but keep holding the Volume UP and HOME until you see the recovery screen).

Notes about ODIN
--Make sure that "Re-Partition" is NOT checked.
--Auto Reboot can be un-checked if CWM doesn't flash correctly on your device. Some have reported that un-checking Auto Reboot fixes this issue. If you un-check Auto Reboot, you will need to reboot the device yourself (refer back to step 10).

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
If the highlight doesn't move on the recovery menu, the selection actually does change. Go ahead and hit Power to select. If the menu goes blank, just hit Volume Up or Down to get it to reappear.

It appears that the menu navigation issue only happens when you use the button combination to boot into recovery. If you use the Quick Boot app or "adb reboot recovery", it seems to work properly.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

After you get the custom recovery working, you can flash the attached universal root zip by @ketut.kumajaya to get root.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Click HERE for latest version.

Same install instructions as above.

After installation, you may experience slow behavior in recovery if you use the button combination to boot into recovery. Using Quick Boot from the play store or any other software method to boot into recovery will solve this problem.

Internal card gets mounted as "/data/media". You may have to hit "up a level" on the folder list on the left to find it.

Please report any issues here in this thread and be sure to include which recovery you are using.

Click HERE for latest version.

Thanks Nole for your hard work on this. I just bought this tablet the night before last and was worried that there wouldn't be any goodies for it, but it looks like thanks to you, things are on their way!

I'll see what I can do. I don't have a T217 to test on, so I may not be able to fix that.

Did the external sdcard mount correctly?

Sdcard mounts properly to flash files, but backups still go to /data/media.

There should be an option to backup to external sdcard about halfway down the "backup and restore" menu
