CM dropped CWM support in CM-12.0 in favor of CM's own recovery, which has different bugs and is generally very simplified recovery (does only wiping/flashing images). So I decided to go on with a different recovery from now on.

This recovery is LVM compatible.

Requirements
  • U8800 with 404020 baseband (If you ever installed 2.3 stock firmware, you're ok!)
  • Strongly recommended: Unlocked pink screen

How to install
Method 1 (by recovery)
  1. Download the zip from downloads below
  2. Save it to your phone (internal or external SD)
  3. Reboot to your current recovery
  4. Install the zip
  5. Reboot recovery
Method 2 (by pink screen)
  1. Download the zip from downloads below
  2. Save it to your PC
  3. Reboot your phone in pink screen mode
  4. Extract recovery.img from the zip
  5. Save the zip on your phone's image/ directory (where boot.img and other files are located)
  6. Reboot to recovery

Downloads
Things to know
  • When backupping, tick "cust". This holds boot.img and other files which are grucial for restoring a full backup.

Hi Blefish
Thanks for the updated recovery.
I had a question, if we were to flash say your CM11 rom, I guess we need to uninstall LVM as you had mentioned before or just flash directly using this recovery
Great job again

You can use this recovery, however LVM needs to be uninstalled. The new BlePart-LVM-11 script makes it easier for you . However, I still want to do one mor CM11 release, with LVM support. Theoretically the new CM12 release is LVM/NON-LVM compatible too but it has problems on installing the ROM (the space on /system is not enough).

Thanks Blefish for the update.
Just installed the new recovery, Off-Mode charging is working fine.
I like the new white charging animation

Blefish, thanks a lot!!
Perhaps, in the next update, you could enable the LED to show the charging progress , if possible..

Yes, I am planning that. The thing was that in CM's healthd (charger is using that) it is supported, but in Omni's healthd it's not supported. I will probably implement it myself if someone has not done it yet.

New version uploaded, enjoy!

Next releases will be uploaded at LegacyHuawei
This version adds the RPC side charging (more stable) and it also enables charging led indicators.

I installed 2850 and now I can't access the sdcard (in TWRP). It works fine if I boot it normally, so I'm guessing it's not a problem with the sd card?
I tried the option to mount the sdcard, but when I try it, TWRP doesn't tick that option. All the others work, though (cust, system, data, ...)
Any suggestions?
