Android system Recovery <3e>
Samsung Revocery Utils
- for BML -
and below it says in yellow:



# MANUAL MODE #

Installing Multi-CSC

You pasted your problems in reverse order (right?).
Linda (the robot voice) tried to convert you to ext4 (voodoo lagfix) and failed, then the phone rebooted and you got the 3e recovery issue.

This is because the stock rom comes with an update in /cache.
The update tries to mount /system, but because you had previously been voodoo lagfixed, the settings on your sdcard (in /sdcard/Voodoo) still exist. So that csc update couldn't mount /system as rfs, then it bails out.

Before you Odin, wipe /sdcard/Voodoo.

This allows the csc update to succeed. Then reboot to recovery and enable voodoo lagfix and /system lagfix.

**EDIT**
Got the red recovery (Voodoo?) to work, but whenever I install a ROM and reboot, a robotic woman's voice says, "convert DATA partition, system not available, then it says convert SYSTEM partition, data not available."

If you get this problem, see here.

I wiped the Voodoo on sdcard, and after ODIN I still got the installation aborted when installing Multi-CSC

After you unzip the recovery file, when you move it to /system, it should replace the existing recovery. As far as I know, unless it replaces the existing recovery file, it will not work.

eMJ's right. You need to have the recovery file be replaced entirely. Nothing but the file being named recovery will suffice. recovery-copy isn't actually named recovery, so it won't be read. Mount R/W on the system, use a root file explorer or ADB, and overwrite the existing recovery with the one from this thread. OR, delete the recovery file and push the new recovery file in it's place and you're fine.

2. unzip the .zip file above on your computer
3. double click on the run.bat in that folder.
Your phone will reboot into recovery at the end of the script.

I took out the rooting aspect of the script, so use SuperOneClick to root your phone before using this script, if you don't have root.

Can you re-upload this file please?
