This is a custom recovery based on Cyanogen's recovery source with a lot of things added by me. The purpose of this recovery is to avoid using adb by accessing all features directly from the menu.

All source code is available at github.

This recovery if for the HTC Dream/G1 only, if you have an :
- HTC Magic/MT3G you should go here.
- HTC Hero you should go here.
- HTC Sprint Hero you should go here.
- HTC Eris you should go here.
- HTC Tattoo you should go here.
- HTC Nexus One you should go here.

Important notes
  • Always check recovery.log before posting your issues!
    You can do this by doing :
    • "cat /tmp/recovery.log" OR "cat /cache/recovery/log" right after you had the issue.
    • Use the "move log to sd" option in the "others" menu right after you had the issue. This will move the log to /sdcard/recovery.log so you can easily open it with a text editor.

Features

Use the trackball (up+down) to navigate through the menu, press the trackball to select items.
You can also use the volume keys (vol-up + vol-down) to navigate, and the CALL-ANSWER key to select items (in case your trackball is broken).
  • full ADB access in recovery mode
  • Busybox v1.15.3
  • HW-Key navigation (volume keys + CALL-ANSWER) option

Install
  • There are several ways to install a custom recovery, choose the one that suits you most (I probably forgot a few).
  • You don't need to enter "mount -a" if your partitions are already mounted.

via fastboot :
  • Requires engineerings SPL!
Code:
Copy recovery-RA-dream-v1.7.0.img to a location where fastboot can find it.
Boot your G1 into fastboot mode (boot while holding BACK)
Connect your G1 via usb to your pc/mac/...
fastboot devices (to make sure that fastboot "sees" your device)
fastboot flash recovery recovery-RA-dream-v1.7.0.img
via adb :
  • Requires a custom recovery (with test-keys) like Cyanogen's v1.4 or my previous recovery
  • Do NOT follow these steps from a terminal application on the phone, make sure that you've booted into a custom recovery first!!!
Code:
Copy recovery-RA-dream-v1.7.0.img to the root of your sdcard
Boot into your current custom recovery (boot while holding HOME)
Connect your G1 via usb to your pc/mac/...
adb shell
#mount -a (this can give back an error if you don't have an ext partition, don't worry about it and just proceed)
#flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-RA-dream-v1.7.0.img
via console :
  • Requires root
  • Do NOT follow these steps from a terminal application on the phone, make sure that you've booted into a custom recovery first!!!
Code:
Copy recovery-RA-dream-v1.7.0.img to the root of your sdcard
Boot into your current custom recovery (boot while holding HOME)
select console from the menu
#mount -a (this can give back an error if you don't have an ext partition, don't worry about it and just proceed)
#flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-RA-dream-v1.7.0.img
via terminal application installed on the phone :
  • Requires root
  • DO NOT use this method with CM5.0.7, there are currently some memory issues while flashing, use the above methods (preferably the fastboot method) instead until the issue is fixed in CM5.0.7!
Code:
Copy recovery-RA-dream-v1.7.0.img to the root of your sdcard
start the terminal app
#flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-RA-dream-v1.7.0.img
Download

ALWAYS check the md5sum to make sure the zip isn't corrupted.
Click on the Mirror-link if you don't like rapidshare

Download the R version if you have a Rogers Dream EBI1 phone!

Latest :
Old stable versions :
Change-log :

v1.7.0
Code:
- Fixed some minor bugs
- Recovery and scripts use /sd-ext instead of /system/sd as mountpoint to support the new apps2sd method (implemented mostly by Chris Soyars)
- Added an option to backup/restore Google proprietary Android system files (backuptool.sh written by Cyanogen)
- Removed "move apps2sd"-option as it's not needed anymore with the new apps2sd method
- Updated BART to v1.3.1 (updated by Dumfuq to support /sd-ext)
- Added a wipe cache only option
- Nandroid now backups/restores /cache again by default
- Dalvik-cache wipes /cache/dalvik-cache now
- Removed SDCARD: prefix in output when chosing zip to flash
- Added Cyan version (There's no difference with the normal version, only the wallpaper and textcolor changed)
v1.6.2
Code:
- Added power off menu item
- New unyaffs binary patched by Koushik Dutta and Packetlss to fix the "losing root"-issue and incorrect file-time after a Nandroid restore
- New dump_image binary (by Brainaid) patched by Packetlss to fix the "bad blocks"- Nandroid restore issue. (This will not fix old corrupted Nandroid backups! Please make new backups!!)
- New mkyaffs2image binary
- New flash_image binary
- Updated busybox to v1.5.3
- Nandroid menu options will NOT backup or restore recovery, cache, misc, splash1+2 (to avoid issues)
- Fixed wipe option not wiping when ext was not present
- Created carebear versions after the idea of packetlss
- Switched the Nexus logo to a Green Carebear with Nexus One logo (Thanks Montalbert!)

I'm sure that step isn't needed, to be honest. I flashed without, like a normal .img flash
