Cannibal Open Touch 3.0 Alpha 11

Disclaimer:
While we try to test our work as much as possible, it is always a possibility that something could go wrong and screw up your phone. We are not responsible for any damage that is done to your device, either directly or indirectly, as a result of using Cannibal Open Touch or any other Project Open Cannibal projects. Any damage done to your device is your responsibility and your responsibility only. We do this for fun, and we simply like to share our work.

What is Cannibal Open Touch?
Cannibal Open Touch is a custom recovery (like ClockworkMod or TWRP), created purely out of love for the platform and the desire to contribute something cool to the community. The name embodies everything that Cannibal Open Touch is. We take what we believe are the best features of popular recoveries like TWRP and ClockworkMod and, well, cannibalize them along with rolling out our own features.

Features:
  • Full Touch UI
  • Complete theme support, including app for management of themes (we'll get to that in a sec)
  • On-device backup and restore
  • Backup and restore via ADB
  • Much much more planned!

Bugs:
  • During installation, the standard Android installing icon gets displayed instead of the custom dialog box.
If you find a bug, please do not report it here! Instead, report it in the GitHub repository!

Screenshots
See the Screenshots tab above. (Or click me if you're using Tapatalk!)

Nandroid has been replaced!
Nandroid is in fact gone, and has been replaced with a much more robust backup solution. Backups can now be made either with ADB (the recommended way) or via the new Backup and Restore item in the main menu. Backups made via the built-in menu can be copied to a PC and restored via ADB, and backups made via ADB can likewise be copied to your device and restored using the Backup and Restore menu.
Code:
adb backup -f mybackupfilename.ab boot system data cache
You can also restore said backup by using adb, like so:
Code:
adb restore mybackupfilename.ab
Downloads:
Cannibal Open Touch hammerhead builds (latest: CannibalOpenTouch-2.99.11_hammerhead-2015032623.img)

How to install:
  1. Download the latest Alpha image
  2. Reboot to bootloader:
    Code:
    adb reboot bootloader
  3. Flash the image with fastboot
    Code:
    fastboot flash recovery /path/to/downloaded/recovery.img
  4. Boot into recovery mode
Alternatively, you may boot the image instead of flashing it:
Code:
fastboot boot /path/to/downloaded/recovery.img

Cannibal Open Touch themes app:
We are currently seeking Alpha testers for an app that will let users download and choose themes without rebooting to recovery mode. Currently there are 20 slots open. If you wish to join please PM me. The only requirement is you must have a Google+ account and are willing to submit proper bug reports, should any arise.

Cannibal Open Touch Themes:
You can now make your own themes for Cannibal Open Touch! See the example themes (it's pretty self-explanatory). Themes must be installed in /sdcard/cot/themes/theme_name (or /data/media/cot/themes/theme_name) in order to work. Please feel free to submit pull requests to have your custom themes added to the theme repository. They will also be packaged and made available to download via the Cannibal Themes app (mentioned above)!

Sounds good, let us know what you think. Remember though that this is a very early alpha build (it's stable, but feature-completeness is maybe 5%).

Nice to see you here. I'll flash ASAP and start flashing again.

Not as of yet.
Don't know about future implementations, but by the look of it if I would guess, no.
