Default recovery 3e modified to work like recovery 2e - Updated 01/23/2011

there are a number of problems with the recovery in the just leaked
Froyo ROM.

1. signature checking
2. passing API version 3 to the updater binary
3. forced wipe after installing an update.zip

the attached zip has a 3e recovery modified to disable signature checking
report API version 2 for backwards compatibility with clockwork mod recovery
and disable the forced wipe after installing any update.

I don't know of any reason to run this version over 2e but it
might be useful to someone.

Installing:

1. turn on USB debugging
2. plug into computer
3. run script and follow on screen prompts.

UPDATED 01/23/2011

fixed path error when space in user name

UPDATED 01/22/2011

compressed the rageagainstthecage resource to prevent anti-virus detection

new anti-virus report
http://virscan.org/report/8e83f338fd...679efbd29.html


the /system file system is full on the newer ROM's
use the attached update.zip to root then install clockwork

you cant flash this you will have to put the files on the internal sdcard
then use root explorer or adb to move the files into place, recovery goes to
/system/bin and the keys to /efs, update.zip is the clockwork recovery and
stays on the sdcard.

when you boot into recovery and choose re-install packages clockwork will
be able to do its thing.

I do like the sig verification but it's a PITA and may disable it, this is a temp
fix until I can finish hacking on recovery there is very little clues as to where
the functions are so it may be a few days.

forgot to mention to you also have to remount /system rw

mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/stl9 /system

Be-ware. Doing so on the ODIN 2E version will break Recovery all together.
Fine to replace on the Stock 2.2 ..
