Hi,

It's not CWM, but this is the stock 3e recovery + adb root access, allowing you to use adb to back up other partitions, restore, etc. etc.

Flash the pda-recovery-root.tar with Odin using the same instructions as for the Root kernel.

If someone who has not yet rooted could flash this and do the following from adb in recovery after:

Code:
adb shell dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p8 of=/tmp/stock-kernel.img
adb pull /tmp/stock-kernel.img
adb shell rm /tmp/stock-kernel.img
then upload stock-kernel.img that would be good for making a return-to-stock odin image

Hi, I haven't tested with anything other than the AT&T GNote. Do you get the # root prompt in adb? You likely wouldn't even have adb without the mod working, what error do you get for what command exactly?

when i run


adb shell dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p8 of=/tmp/stock-kernel.img

i get

/dev/block/mmcblk0p8: cannot open for read: Permission denied

then again do i have to be in recovery mode fir before i run adb? just figured out how to get into recovery.

Since I'm in Canada with the Rogers variant I was going to upload the stock kernel, but somehow I just cannot get into recovery to pull it, I've tried vol up+power, both volumes+power, and obviously vol down+ power is download mode. It's almost embarrassing haha.
I've always made good use of what the dev's have done for us since my N1, I figured I could give back at least a little

to get into recovery mode hold vol + and vol - and turn on the phone holding the volume keys and release the power key

Da_G...

I have been a big fan of yours for a long time... You had the BEST Windows 6.5 ROMS I ever used and have always done a lot for the community...

I cannot tell you how happy I was to see that you have this phone and are working on it!

Just wanted to sing your praises

Can't wait to see your new stuff!
