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.

This recovery is for the HTC GSM Desire only, if you have a :
- HTC Dream/G1 you should go here.
- 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 N1 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. Use the Back-key to go back to a previous menu.

fastboot flash recovery recovery-RA-desire-v2.0.0.img

Download

ALWAYS check the md5sum to make sure the zip isn't corrupted.

Latest version :
"Themed" versions :
Only the background and colors are changes compared to the default one.
Change-log :

v2.0.0
Some things in v2.0.0 were kanged with a twist from the Clockworkmod recovery.
  • Updated kernel to 2.6.35 (SLCD and AMOLED are now both supported).
  • Added SDEXT support for update scripts.
  • Added "filebrowser" support when you select a zip to flash.
  • Added "/.." support to the filebrowser so you can navigate up.
  • Added a mount menu so you can manually (u)mount stuff.
  • Added a toggle verification switch so you can flash those awesome unsigned winrar rom releases...
  • Fully re-wrote the wipe menu (it's not using a script anymore), added a few new wipe options.
  • Added "/sdcard/.android_secure" support , nandroid now backups/restores .android_secure (Froyo a2sd apps) by default.
  • Added a few new Google apps to the Google app backup script.
