Here are prerooted stock images for use with my recovery. Note that these contain addon.d support, so any 3rd party things you install to /system need an addon.d script to be retained between flashes.

Managing Stock Recovery
Starting with 5.0.5_r3, stock recovery gets disabled. This means you cannot reboot in to stock recovery manually or automatically because of a system update. This will make it safer for people who forget to disable updates. You should still disable updates though. If for whatever reason, you want to reenable it, or verify it is disabled, you can use the manage_recovery program. Under normal circumstances, you should never need to use manage_recovery.
  • Connect to adb and start a shell
  • Switch to root with su
  • Run manage_recovery (if you do not run su first, it will seem to run, but won't actually be able to do anything)
    Code:
    manage_recovery

There are 3 different scenarios that manage_recovery will detect and prompt for.

The first is when stock recovery is disabled, it will look like this:
Code:
Checking current stock recovery status... NOT STOCK
Checking for reason... DISABLED
Stock recovery is currently disabled,
Would you like to enable it?
Type 'yes' to enable it, anything else to quit.
The second is when a stock recovery is flashed that does not match the current system version:
Code:
Checking current stock recovery status... NOT STOCK
Checking for reason... WRONG VERSION
Would you like to disable stock recovery?
Type 'yes' to disable it, anything else to quit.
And finally, the third is when stock recovery is enabled and the correct version:
Code:
Checking current stock recovery status... STOCK
Would you like to disable stock recovery?
Type 'yes' to disable it, anything else to quit.
After changing the recovery status, you can run the program again to verify it changed.

WARNING: DO NOT FLASH 5.0.5.1 OR EARLIER IF YOU STARTED WITH VERSION 5.2.1.0 OR LATER

Hi,
I ended up with following message during image installation:
Code:
[...]
Coping system image...
Updater process ended with signal: 7
Error installing zip file '/usb/sloane-5.0.4-rooted_r2.zip'
Updating partition details...
...done
And, no wonder... after power cycling (I had to do so, since recovery seemed to be frozen) it stuck in a bootloop.
But I still can access recovery!

Any ideas? Is there any way to get a more verbose output?
(Used recovery 3.0.0-2 and recovery_installer v3)

Edit:
Now there is no /system Partition mounted

Edit2:
I was able to mount /dev/block/mmcblk0p13 manually to /system but it seems that I can't mount it in rw mode.
If I do so, it switches back to ro when I there the folder. (I think, that could be the error during image installation)

What's strange is: If I enter /system/lib I can't execute any command (like "ls" "touch" etc. only cd is working) I get following output:
Code:
/system/lib # ls
CANNOT LINK EXECUTABLE DEPENDENCIES: "libc.so" is 32-bit instead of 64-bit
# echo $LD_LIBRARY_PATH
.:/sbin
File libc.so is existing, but I can't finde a way to get the file type data

Edit3:
More strange things:
I was wrong! I am able to write to /system till the point when I execute a "ls"
Than its back to ro.

Edit4:
I tried to reflash recovery and the following error:
Locating the target file...
Code:
[...]
Reading 05055F000: 100%
Opening the target file...
Reading 01D947000: 100%
error: source file is larger than target file!
No shure if that was there when I flashed it first.

If you reboot in the middle of flashing the ROM, you're /system is going to be corrupt. It's a miracle recovery is still working. The reason the installer is failing is because you can only use it for 100% stock roms. Once you start using recovery and flashing things, you cannot (and should not) use the installer. I will add a warning.

If recovery hangs again, you can run
Code:
killall recovery
from adb shell and it will restart. It is extremely important never to reboot if you have a failure. As for logs... /tmp/recovery.log has the full log. Have you verified the file transfer properly before trying to flash?
