Default [RECOVERY] Monster RootPack 0.7 / Clockwork Recovery 3.0.0.5 SD (1.1 Compatible!)

Quote:
New version 0.7 available!
Now compatible with software version 1.1 !!
Special thanks to Decad3nce for the new framework.jar!
Howdy everyone! It's thecubed / IOMonster again!

This time, I'm back with a MONSTER release

For all those asking "What's a Monster RootPack"? It's simple!
It's a SD card image containing a bootable Clockwork Recovery 3.0.0.5 and a set of .zip files that allow you to root your device and install Google Apps (market, gmail, youtube, etc).

All you have to do is read the instructions-- it explains the rest.
Please be sure to read ALL the instructions first before using this utility!


Quote:
All the instructions can be found here: http://legacyschool.us.to/nookdev/cl...tructions.html
Be sure to read through them!
I'm not one for huge forum posts, so keeping all the instructions on one URL helps me stay organized


Quote:
Downloads:
Download the RootPack here: http://legacyschool.us.to/nookdev/cl...ack-0.7.tar.gz [mirror]

Or

Download a bootable Clockwork SD card (128mb, 1gb, 2gb, 4gb, 8gb) here:
http://legacyschool.us.to/nookdev/clockwork/0.7/ [mirrors]
Quote:
Updated Zip Files:
Use these if you already have a bootable SD, or even CWM installed on your device:

Quote:
Want to build your own CWM SD cards?
Download this: http://legacyschool.us.to/nookdev/cl...env-0.7.tar.gz
It's a complete build environment for making bootable SD cards. Included are the source files for 128mb, 1gb, 2gb, 4gb, and 8gb SD cards.

Updates:
  • Version 0.7
    New build environment!
    New CWR sizes, rootpack reduced to 128mb image. (We now have 128mb, 1gb, 2gb, 4gb, and 8gb images!)
    1.1 Rooting and Google Apps support! (thanks D3cad3nc3!)
    FIXED: backup/restore from CWM now works correctly!
  • Version 0.5
    Well, packages.xml is in /data/system, not /system .. oops.
    Release of 128mb bootable Clockwork SD card also
    Adds block-1.1.zip and unblock-1.1.zip to block the updates the easy way!
  • Version 0.4r2
    Bugfixes. Lots of 'em.
  • Version 0.4
    Fix root.zip and googleapps.zip permissions problems (/data/app and /system/app DO have different owners and permissions)
    Bootable CWM base: No change; version bumped to 0.4 just because.
  • Version 0.3
    Update to most recent Clockwork Recovery 3.0.0.5 build (should have working backup/restore, and defaults to ext2/ext3 support instead of ext4)
    Fixes root.zip and googleapps.zip bugs (can't believe I forgot a semicolon!)
    Updates installclockwork.zip to latest Clockwork Recovery build supporting ext2/3
  • Version 0.2
    Initial public beta release
This brings me to my final point: this rootpack has been tested on my device, but I'm sure there are still bugs! If you want a time-tested method for rooting your device, stick with AutoNooter for the time being.

BUT! I really need testers! If you'd like to test this, please let me know.

Questions/comments welcome!

CWR works beautifully booting from SDCard, you sir are the man of the hour I shall email you two internets!

However, I do not see the zip files you refer too :P (Does not really matter that much as by itself its amazing!)

The real credits go to the awesome dudes of ClockworkMod, nemith on IRC, FatTire on IRC, [mbm] on IRC, and a LONG list of other people that I am soon to credit with a rather large section in my instructions

Glad it helps!


EDIT: The zips are only in the rootpack_1gb.tar.gz -- they're actually in the sd image. Clockwork_1gb.tar.gz is just a bootable clockwork, for the people who just want a platform without any additions (and a speedy download! the rootpack is 24mb, whereas the clockwork card is only 8mb)

something is up with the img file for the rootpack, it claims not enough space on my 2gb card and my 16gb card... cwr only img seems to be fine.. just a heads up

I take it back.... my work laptop is just a POS, my thinkpad does it just fine! whatever.... so much for Dell!

How big did it decompress to be? It should only be around 900MB... unless I accidentally compressed it wrong somehow...

Seems to decompress fine for me.. 941-ish MB.. should fit just fine on any SD 1GB or larger...

Default What If You're Already Rooted..

Can this be done or (groans mightily) do we have to revert all the way back to stock?
