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 bacon builds (latest: CannibalOpenTouch-2.99.11_bacon-2015041308.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:

  4. Boot into recovery mode
Alternatively, you may boot the image instead of flashing it:

  • All backup/restore operations now verify that you want to take action
  • Resized UI to be more usable on all device resolutions

The preceding list is not 100% complete. See the project source code page for the full commit list.

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)!

So what happens if your out away from your PC and you flash something that goes wrong. No backup on your phone to restore...thanks but no thanks.

Edit: In addition what if you're not by your PC and you want to make a backup before flashing something? You have to wait till you get home? Kind of defeats the fact that these are cell phones and not tied to a cord.

Short answer: one should not be messing with one's phone while away from their computer.

Long answer: we're weighing the logistics of adding on-device backup capabilities to Cannibal Open Touch. There are serious legitimate data security concerns that do weigh heavily on our decisions in regard to this subject.

You're kidding I hope...

I find my self out with my wife while she's shopping and while I'm sitting waiting for her I'll check out XDA to see if there is anything new and never have a problem or even a second thought about flashing something because I have a backup.

I'm 100% sure I'm not the only person that flashes things while away from my PC.

No disrespect meant but without on-device backups this recovery sounds better suited for a land line phone than a cell phone.

Nope not kidding.

And if that backup that you didn't give a second thought about somehow got corrupted without your knowledge you'd be toast.
