:FAQs:


Q: Wanna know about Aroma File manager?
Visit the aroma file manager main thread for more info---> Aroma file manager main thread

Aroma file manager is a touch file manager which can be used while in recovery. It has options for copy, paste, delete,
change permissions and many others. Also, it has a Terminal inside. So, if you forgot to give correct permissions to any
file you can do that directly from recovery. This file manager has got many themes, font, icons, etc. options and it's UI
is fully customizable.

Q: How to start this File manager in Recovery?
  • Rename the downloaded file to 'aromafm.zip'.
  • Create a folder 'aromafm' inside 'Clockworkmod' folder on your sdcard.
  • Now, move that 'aromafm.zip' file to the 'aromafm' folder.
  • We're ready now, when you want to use it in recovery just double tap anywhere OR go to "philz Settings" and select
    "Aroma File Manager" and it will start up.
  • If you also want to browse /data, /system and /sd-ext then mount them in the "mounts & storage" option in recovery.

Q: Problems with Aroma file manager startup?
After doble-tapping OR selecting 'Aroma file Manager' option under 'philz settings' if recovery gives error: 'aromafm.zip
not found at /clockworkmod/aromafm' then, wait for 4-5 seconds and again select 'Aroma file Manager', because it maybe
busy mounting sdcard.

If still doesn't work, you've made mistakes in steps mentioned in first post, please do again carefully.

Q: Does your phone every time reboots to recovery?
This happens very rare when you flash the recovery using any bad app or via any wrong (not proper) method. What you can do
is:

-If you've made a backup of your current ROM then just restore only it's "boot" and then select 'reboot to system'.

OR

-You don't have a backup? Then just flash the ROM which you are using currently again and wipe 'dalvik-cache'. Then reboot
to system. Booting process will take time.

i tried your recovery by creating a zip update
you should work more on it because the graphic in some aroma installer or aroma file manager doesnt work too good!
and just feels the normal CWM and not Philz recovery !
But any way, Good Job!

Aroma File Manager has no LDPI resources. If you want it for LDPI, you can do it, it's an Artist's work. I'm not gonna do it.

Please read the first post carefully. It has no GUI options: So, no themes and all that.

It's not at all like normal CWM in terms of functions. It has got many important functions, atleast for me.

Most important part:

I've worked on this advanced only version for 20-25 days already and made it fully stable.

And...I've worked for almost 2 months on FULL VERSION. Discussed a lot with Phil3759 and finally came to conclusion that it won't work on armv6 unless it's (libtouch_gui) specially compiled for armv6, Which Phil3759 didn't have time and resources for.

So, Be happy with this recovery. No one can give you better philz recovery than this, atleast at present.

Installed your recovery.
Selected clean install ROM option.
Installed a ROM.
Selected Reboot System.
Phone rebooted into your recovery.


Tried various ROMS all rebooted into your recovery and not to the newly installed ROM.
Flashed CWM 6.0.4.6 and installed a ROM and rebooted to installed ROM successfully.

Any ideas what is wrong?

I do like the Aroma FM.

Yep...you're correct.
It won't boot into system.

I finally figured out that it is a problem in androidarmv6 sources. You can see change #6205 if you want.

It was maybe fixed just 4-5 days ago by androidmeda and I'll be again making the recovery and give you all for testing.

This is not only problem of your device but it is also there in: tass, gio and beni.

i read that!
pay attention: the aroma that use in every CWM works fine
but in your recovery it has a bad graphic and kind of blue!

i mean before you create this Philz recovery we had a older version that works perfect!

It works perfect just in the sense: It reboots to system successfully. It lacks Aroma file manager also. And, Aroma file manager with that original green colour doesn't come with armv6 sources nor it will come if you download from original thread.

I'll be fixing reboot to system soon.

That recovery doesn't even have Touch, GUI options and all that.
