Doesn't matter... eMMC or MTD partitions are supported. The only thing you need to do is to adapt recovery.fstab to each specific case.

Okay, here's CWM recovery v6.0.2.8 (ramdisk only) for anyone that wants to port it to MT65xx based devices. Please note that this ramdisk contains my Huawei U8836D specific files and properties, but it should at least be portable for the majority of MT6577 phones out there. Important note is that init.usb.rc (only needed for MT6577 devices) is device specific and while porting the original must be taken from stock boot.img.

Other than that, nandroid backup is fully working for devices with eMMC partitions, unlike other recoveries that get stuck while backing up boot partition.

Happy porting (and don't forget to hit "Thanks" button)!

Yes, I'm interesting in your ramdisk. I will try to port for my Umi X1 and my Amoi n821...
Thanks.

i suspect yours is mtd then refer to here & download BakUpTool_MT657 5 _2.3_v2c_4GB_sdcard.rar

Or you can use this tut to uploading your recovery via SP Flash Tool...

Yuweng bro!

We got the kernel source of a110 - as another company releasing the same phone posted in on github!

I cloned them on to my linux and compiled the kernel.....varunchitre said he used a modified repack script of bruno martins.....he is currently off for 5 days due to exams.....so I can't get it from him currently..........anyways i'm going to try the same repacker......do you have any recommendations?

Wow, that is indeed a great news, Master Shifu...

So far there are non DEVs compiles CWMR for our MT6577 SoC so i too have downloaded CM10.1 source code to learn to build it... it took 8 hours on my 5mb broadband to download it & after zipping it, it is close to 10GB in size... Just started to setup the build environment and those cli is really driving me crazy... Just to let the rest of you guys FEEL of setting up those build environment here...
So guys please thanks Master Shifu BM, now we don't have to compile it & we have cwmr 6.0.2.8 on our MT6577...

Eagerly awaits for your CWMR touch too, Master Shifu...

Yeoh Bro, Wow, you too started to build then i could learn a trick or two from you...
i've tested JB boot/ recovery unpack/ repack, both Master Shifu BM & Master Shifu Michfood utils works great... in fact, one fellow xda member who pm me, provide links to latest MT6589 update.zip & the good news is that both utils is able to unpack/ repack it successfully too...

Sorry

Nice to meet you........


Big Thanks for your job, my port of your recovery for my devices is very good not bugs i think.

O.T.
But you can help me for setup device and vendor directory on cm10 (Acer Gallant Duo and Z110)?.

Do let me know how it works out on ur MT6575...

Hi yuweng
You addressed these lines to another forum member, but please allow me to join the Ubuntu beta testers "army" .

As you know, I also wanted to port one of these nicer recoveries for my Haier W718 (MT6575) since the one that comes with this phone is very basic.
First I tried the Windows XP+Android Kitchen+cygwin way, but I got an error with the output and I thought I might as well try the Ubuntu option since I have it installed.
Unfortunately, I also came across an error:
Repacking recovery image...
Ramdisk size: 5314 blocks
Can't exec "mkbootimg": No such file or directory at repack-MT65xx.pl line 82.
But that executable file is indeed in the directory where the script is running, so I don't understand. I extracted it in the same folder where I have the Android Kitchen although I am not even sure this is relevant. Am I missing something?

Cheers,
