Guys, i can't keep up with all the different porting tools i've made, pls DIY if you want CTRv2.5. . .

The porting tool has everything & already given you all the info you need . . .

Step 1
  • If yours is emmc/ mtd refer to here & download your device res
  • If yours is custpack refer to here & download your device res
  • If yours is ubifs refer to here & download your device res

Step 2
  1. Use the Unpack/ Repack recovery.img -> Unpack recovery.img, copy downloaded CTRv2.5 Eg: port_CarlivTouch-recovery-2_5-480x854.img & rename it to recovery.img & press OK
  2. Goto CTRv2.4\UnpackRepack\recovery\rmdisk & copy whole res folder out
  3. Goto CTRv2.4\UnpackRepack\recovery\rmdisk\sbin & copy the binary file named recovery out

Step 3
  1. Use the Unpack/ Repack recovery.img -> Unpack recovery.img again to unpack the earlier working CTRv2.4 recovery.img for your device
  2. Delete res folder & replace it with res from CTRv2.5
  3. Replace recovery from CTRv2.5 to sbin
  4. Manual edit CTRv2.4\UnpackRepack\recovery\rmdisk\etc\recovery.fstab with Notepad++ & add the below accordingly
    Code:
    /boot        emmc    /dev/bootimg
    /recovery    emmc    /dev/recovery
    /uboot       emmc    /dev/uboot
    /nvram       emmc    /dev/nvram <- Add this new line
    
    OR
    
    /nvram       mtd      nvram
  5. Use the Repack recovery.img & let it auto-install the new CTRv2.5 to your device, thats it !

Thanks for another way of manually updating carliv recovery. However, in my case, I do it the other way around. I just copy the necessary files from my working CTRv2.4 to CTRv2.5 (e.g., recovery.fstab, default.prop, ueventd.rc, kernel image, etc.) and repack the latter.

Master recovery was successfully created and also it was flashed perfectly
The Recovery booted and also everything was fine...

Just a thing that when flashing something the updater script lines are exceeding the resolution which was not before
other than its perfect
