Default Working recovery with UI glitches

Hi,

I just realised that I'm going to post this, hopefully to get some help getting the frame buffer issue working. I'm not giving up on it, but it just doesnt seem fair to sit on this any longer since it works, besides the GUI glitches.

As i said before, the S7 kernel does not support framebuffering, which makes the GUI in the recovery a bitt messy. When you move up / down in the menu, it switches between selecting an item on top and an item on the bottom (you'll see 4 menus in total, but the ones on each horizontal line is a mirror).

This means that it starts by using the lower one, and it uses the top one next, then it goes back to the lower one. Boot it up and you'll probably see what I mean. This shouldnt cause any problems with the recoverys operation anyhow.

If you want to enter adb in linux you will have to get a copy of usb_modeswitch and run the following line in order to get adb to recognize the device:

sudo usb_modeswitch -W -v 12d1 -p 1031 -V 12d1 -P 1035 -M "5553424370ab71890600000080010a110600000000000 0000 0000000000000" -s 20

This will switch the huawei s7 usb device into adb mode.

Also i take no responsibilites of bricks or other problems caused by using this recovery. Its truly for learning usage only.

My credit list would be to long if I where to include all forums that I've visited to get more information about this device, but if you feel like you deserve credit, let me know and i'll add you, otherwise, thanks to all people posting information about android devices, i could never have done it without you.

Ofcourse i have to thank the creators of clockwork mod, and also the people who wrote the repack-image.pl and unpack-image.pl scripts

Thanks to my wife who put up with me sitting and messing around with this for almost a week, giving her not the attention that she deserved, and thanks to all users of the S7 tablet out there.

The shortcut key for entering recovery is menu + send, if anyone wonders.

Hope you'll enjoy it as much as I did.

You're right, I noticed now that I the wrong ramdisk in the image that was released. I have several of them for which I use to debug the framebuffer stuff, and I forgot to use my own build.

I'll upload the correct one sometime this weekend.

Sorry.

The ui glitches even more now that the misc partition handled and the nandroid script is running. I guess i need to get this fixed before i release it, or it will just be a mess.
