hello all,

this recovery is not ported by me, xda's senior member fun_ have ported this to many devices, and we using the one which is compatible with paladin, many many thanks to him, a link to original thread is here

requirements:-

1. a rooted phone, you can root your tab here

2. cwm recovery image which you can get here

steps:-

1. open file manager which can have root access

2. go to system and rename recovery.cpio.img to recovery.cpio.img.bak

3. put downloaded recovery in /sdcard

4. open terminal emulator

5. type su

6. type "inand_flash_image recovery /mnt/sdcard/recovery.cpio.img" (if you have put it in flash then replace sdcard with flash)

7. then boot into recovery by holding menu and power button together or by typing "reboot recovery" in terminal emulator

how to control recovery:-

# power button is used to select options

# menu button will take you up

# home button will get you down when pressed

some notes you should keep in mind:-

1. back button do not work in recovery

2. never try the key test option else you will get stuck

3. backup do not work for boot, xboot, mbr areas

4. do not flash any rom available for paladin, basic etc. devices (or you will have a hard bricked tablet)

a simple step to enable on-screen back button

as soon as you booted into recovery, press menu then home then again menu, a message will appear saying enabled ( can be done in every screen)

kcrc32 not same is normal

did the terminal flash the recovery 2 times

like:-

kcrc32 not same
then a hex address
flashing from /mnt/sdcard

kcrc32 not same
then a hex address
flashing from /mnt/sdcard

if you get something like above then it is flashed properly

yup i got it twice, kcrc32 not same.

then i entered reboot recovery. thats when the screen goes all curtainfall like a crash, and recovery doesn't load. i had to use the reset pin and power button to turn on the tab again.. perhaps the img is not compatible with my tab?

btw mine is Karbonn Smart Tablet 2.

but when i purchased, it came with android 4.0 ics. everything else is same as in that page..

What if there is no "recovery.cpio.img" file in the system folder? This is after having root permissions...nothing has been done otherwise. I do not have a recovery file to rename and am unsure if it should still go in the system folder or not. It doesn't even have a file extension (I had to transfer it to my laptop just to check, and there's no .img or .zip...nothing.)

Also I keep getting the following message in terminal emulator when attempting to run the command:

sh: inand_flash_image: not found. The image file is in the /mnt/sdcard/Download folder. The full instance is:

[email protected]:/ $ su
[email protected]:/ # inand_flash_image recovery /mnt/sdcard/Download/recovery.cpio.img
sh: inand_flash_image: not found
127|[email protected]:/ # inand_flash_image
sh: inand_flash_image: not found

Any help?
