@ 96DANGER96
AIt's a simole but basic ruule for any thread/forum: also if there is no a section, is not a good reason to make an OT in other place.
You cannor ask here about an argument that is OT (mediatek is OK - others are OT).
Please open a thread with your specific request and don't post here fabout OT argument.

Thanks to surfturtle for reporting . . .

Workaround : Use Manual mode & select 720x1024 that is the screen res for 720x1280 . . .

This is an AIO porting tool so go ahead & try the differrent res at Manual mode, the unpack/ repack feature, play around with it & you'll learn what is needed for porting custom recoveries . . .

Notice to annoying n00bs & newbies

Most of your questions are already answered on this thread so pls read it...

1) Either your MTK is still then use this method here then EXIT/ CLOSE it first then re-start the porting tool...

2) i've already put in alot of error checking to make sure this porting tool works, either the Auto or Manual port, it will leave behind Ported-CTR folder then manually install it via SPFT when it fail to auto install.... Most probably why it fail to install is b'cos you use SuperSu did you bother to look at your MTK device & grant access to Root Shell... There has been cases where the stock recovery is already corrupted then this tool will also port a corrupted CTR too. Re-install your stock 3e recovery.img & make sure you can boot into it then only use the porting tool again or just use the manual port... The differences is Auto will upload whatever recovery already at your device be it older CWM or TWRP & it will repack it with CTR ramdisk. While Manual will use whatever at your stock 3e -> factory_init.project.rc, meta_init.modem.rc, ueventd.rc & etc... Refer to this by Master Shifu carliv... This tool has no log b'cos it is actually a simple copy & paste program, thats what it actually do....

3) Pls bear in mind that this porting tool has been downloaded by many & confirmed working BUT i can't guarantee that it will work flawlessly on your MTK device so continue trying & report back the solution if you found one...

4) This has been mentioned many times on this thread, if you really can't get it to work then don't just say your porting tool doesn't work...

Instead list out everything then it'll be easier to trouble-shoot
a) What OS you are using on the PC & your MTK...
b) Did you disable UAC & Anti-Virus on your PC
c) Did you execute the porting tool at C:\ drive if you're using XP else then at your Desktop READ what the porting tool says & it will ask you to wait then wait for it to continue without pressing the OK button...

As said many times, this porting tool uses Russian Master Shifu Michfood Repack Utils Huge Credits to him, it is actually DOS program with cygwin dll working at the back so all DOS limitation still applies such as it will ONLY operate properly when it is executed at the Desktop on latest OS... Tested working on XP to 8.1

As much info as possible then it'll be easy to identify where it goes wrong & did you bother to read 5 to 10 pages from the back then you would have know what is the latest story...

Last but not least, i didn't compile CTR so any features not working / bugs found pls report it here BUT again, read the whole thread first as most already answered at that thread...


1) Touch not working, refer to here...
2) MTK Alcatel devices refer to here & here... Supported on CTRv2.4
3) All MTK devices supported except this...
4) Inverted screen solutions -> Compile your own
5) CTRv2.5

Can I use this method to port CTR to my KitKat device?

The whole procedure completes successfully but the resulting recovery.img is 6.04MB and I can't use it with SP Flash Tool because it's too large and will overlap.
What am I doing wrong here?


Sorry but can you help me to find a link where can I download michfood-Port-CWM-
