Please bear in mind that it's not the regular android recovery (we cannot replace recovery image without cracked bootloader). Instead, the boot hijacking is used to start recovery mode. You still need basic files on your /system partition to use this. NEVER use the "format /system" option (it's there only to check if anyone reads this long, boring note).
This recovery is NOT tested for compatibility with app2sd! Use at your own risk.
This recovery WILL be used to flash custom roms easily.
DO NOT reinstall busybox. Recovery depends on it's particular busybox version.
1. Phone must be rooted
2. Busybox from the market installed
