hi, all

I got my hands on Motorola Atrix 4G 4 days earlier from one of my friend.I like it very much ! awesome phone ! better than my dead defy! This is my first release CWM recovery for Atrix 4G.

i should work as it should be but the ums and usb adb debug functions is not working .


it's just like the defy recovery, you can install this as a normal application.but you need to get your device rooted.and it's only for Motorola Atrix 4G aka MB860.

Comments and donations are wellcome. you can donate so that i can get myself a Atrix 4G, Thanks in advance.

UPDATED 2011-0408-1720 GMT +8
update to support nandroid to internal sdcard.and restore form internal sdcard.
add a "enable adb server" in advance menu, but still not working


download latest version:

MOTOA4_Bootstrap_0408_1720-signed.apk




UPDATED 2011-0408-1105 GMT +8
small change for recovery enter method, you can now enter recovery everytime you plug your ac charger when you phone is off. and you can change modes between recovery mode or poweroff charge mode inside the app.
it seems every thing is working right now, and i am going to add other partition support such as flash "bpsw" partion or "dev" partition , when this feture is add we can flash all partitions and we dont need to flash sbf files to downgrade or upgrade! awesome?


download old version:
MOTOA4_Bootstrap_0408_1103-signed.apk

UPDATED 2011-0406-1434 GMT +8

add support for update.zip in internal sdcard from main menu
add support for mount osh partition,so we can make update package for unbutu mod! great for devs!
fixed power off charging mode.



Download the old version: FIXED! update at 17L43pm GMT+8

MOTOA4_Bootstrap_0406_1730-signed.apk




UPDATED 2011-0404-1555 GMT +8

add support for power off charging as some one requested.


Downlaod old version :
MOTOA4_Bootstrap_0404_1755-signed.apk

Please uninstall the old version ,then reinstall this new version.then reclick the "install recovery" button in the System Recovery Application. the every time you need to enter the recovery , you need to connect the ac charge then click the "Recovery Boot" button to boot into recovery.

An Official Atrix 4G in China is about 5000 RMB(about 700USD) without dock. it's about 7000 RMB with a dock (~1000 USD), so expensive that i can't afford. so your donations will help me a lot!

PS: i am trying to make other way to enter the CMW recovery mode.and i am going to make the osh partiton transparent to user. so we can mod the osh partition ,any devs interested in this?

Fist to the OP thank you for this....just thought Id add some more info from the source site

Second edited due to development success on this Awesome work though do look into adb sbf withing the search function of the development thread and learn about them before using this so you have a way to go back

Removed the apk upload from this post the OP has been working and updating his progress XD and the download speeds much better than it was before XD
Quote:

Third added the apk attachment that is said to install a working recovery, seems to be the only file downloadable from the source site... There is not alot of info there.

Fourth Added pics taken from the source posting... its all Chinese literally

4 days ago I finally got this I heard a long time Atrix 4G, spent three days free time get the Recovery. And then spent one day free time a person considered to be more integration of the perfect ROM, hope you like it. The machine got my brother to feel that defy ah ~! Ha. Good. Machine performance very good, no loss is dual-core!
Haha, A4 custom Recovery Coming! No way in the use of other forums online updates, online updates will be a lot of messy problems occur. May not fully updated!

Installation:
Root for your cell phone first, root method see: http://bbs.goapk.com/thread-1667169-1-1.html

Apk installed then install the normal recovery;
Prompted the request su permission.
Then prompted to install success
Then ok. For details, please refer to the software tips.
Usage:
Switched off the phone into the AC charger, and then the phone will enter Recovery mode!
Keys Description:
Volume up and down switch, the power button to confirm



That said if this recovery even crashes you should be able to get to rsd mode and revert back to which ever base sbf you were using XD

Second This IS NOT Verified there is no release of a "flash able ROM" or kernel for that matter this posting is just for dev purposes and again its content and use is unverified

Third added the apk attachment that is said to install a working recovery, seems to be the only file downloadable from the source site... There is not alot of info there.

Fourth Added pics taken from the source posting... its all Chinese literally

Thanks for you posting and attached the apk file. the original source is post by me for china users. this recovery include two languages. English and Chinese,because i am a Chinese. you can find a flashable rom in here.

http://bbs.goapk.com/thread-1667169-1-1.html

it's also for chinese users. the recovery supports amend and edify scripts.because it's based on clockworkmod 2.5.1.8! only the usb is not working.i didnt find out how to make the usb function work .
other function including backup is work. there is one think that the system partition is mounted when you enter the recovery. you can not umount it.

i will try my best to fix those bugs. if any one would like to help me.please let me know. thanks in advance

it's a bootstrap recovery, it will not infact your phones rsd functionality. and you can use voldown + power button for more functions ,but i did figure out what those function are.
i tested it many times i cant even count it. it takes me so many flash to get a working recovery....! the last time i trying to port the clock work mod to defy , my defy is bricked~~
