GeeWiz 1.2 Froyo ROM/Kernel/Recovery - RETIRED

This ROM/Kernel/Recovery is retired -- No further updates will be made to it however I am always willing to provide as much support as I can, please feel free to PM me or continue to post to this thread

GINGERBREAD GEEWIZ HERE: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1278838

Background
My goal was to build a ROM that would be suitable for my non-technical and glitch-intolerant wife to use on her phone. Something solid and basic that modifies only what needed to be modified to clean up the bloated and Binged out device Samsung gave us, while keeping TouchWiz and all of it's enhanced stock applications (other than the wild color palette, they aren't that bad).

I've also included an ED05-based kernel with the ROM. It follows the same principals as the ROM; has what it needs to be useful but keeps things pretty much stock. I've tried to enhance the performance of the device a bit without taking any measures like overclocking or under-volting it, killed off Verizon's ability to monitor your wifi tethering from third-party tethering apps, added Supercurio's amazing Voodoo Sound to it, added a couple little personal tweaks of my own here and there, and the end result has been something that matches the ROM concept very well.

The feedback I've received on this ROM/Kernel has been overwhelmingly positive, and I thank everyone for not only giving it a try but for also taking the time to let me know what you think of it. The nature of the ROM/Kernel doesn't lend itself to frequent updates, but I will do my best to keep it updated with the latest and greatest built-in stuff for you and apply anything new I learn that would be of value ...

Credits
ccampos784 ... taught me how to deodex properly, hooked me up with a GPS fix, let me use his update.zip as a template and for his advice/help through the final stages of this project. Also the author of the excellent PW-OTB Fusion Kernel, which I highly recommend
untermensch ... posted a fabulous tutorial on how to add options to the pop-up power button menu
ChainsDD ... what would we do without Superuser.apk ?
boombuler ... AppWidgetPicker
sbrissen ... Accurate Battery Meter modification graphics
supercurio ... Voodoo Sound
the nameless others that posted their experiences on the Internet for me to learn from

> I recommend you flash your device back to stock ED05 before installing this ROM/Kernel. Neither component has been tested on a device that has been modified far from stock. If you need ED05, please refer to pentafive's post here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1178544)

> Installing this ROM/Kernel/Recovery will void your device's warranty, and I cannot be held responsible for any damages of any kind (including data loss) that are incurred either directly or indirectly by this ROM/Kernel. What you do to your device is your problem.

GeeWiz Kernel 1.2
Base: SCH-I500 ED05 linux-2.6.32.9
- Compiled with 2010.09 armeabi toolchain
- Root shell enabled
- EXT4 file system support (does not provide you with a way to convert to EXT4, however)

- Default I/O scheduler set to DEADLINE

(Complete version history below)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Animation Chooser Service
- The GeeWiz Kernel has a custom service called Animation Chooser that decides at boot time whether to show you the stock VZW animation or a custom boot animation
- If a custom boot animation is located in /system/media, that will override the stock VZW animation
- If neither a custom boot animation nor the stock VZW/Samsung animation is found, it will default to a basic "ANDROID" boot animation
- This service is currently unique to the GeeWiz Kernel, please feel free to ask me any questions you may have about it and how it works

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Using other Kernels
- You should be able to use pretty much any TouchWiz enabled Froyo Kernel out here, Voodoo or not, with this ROM.
- I left the stock Verizon boot/shutdown animations in place in this ROM, so it should be noted that if you use a different Kernel you may experience an "ANDROID" animation overlaid on the Verizon animation during boot. Otherwise, I haven't had any notable or unexpected issues with combining this ROM with other Kernels.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Known Issues
- Default applications may be listed out of order in the main app tray. This is due to the TouchWiz Launcher being 'install' before some of the provided applications, which prevents those applications from being laid out properly. To resolve, clear data on the TwLauncher application.

GeeWiz Froyo Recovery

NOTE: This Froyo-based recovery has a known issue with ADB. More often than not, when recovery launches ADB will not be available. Remove the USB cable from the device, and select Tools/Restart ADBD Service from the Recovery menu (I typically do it twice for good measure). Wait a couple seconds and reconnect the USB cable. This should allow ADB to connect.

Background
GeeWiz Recovery is the project I started working on back in the day before trying to get into ROMs at all. I wanted to learn some of the ins and outs of Android/Linux development, but am also one of those annoying "non-Java" guys. Playing around with Kernels and ultimately a Recovery system was a much more comfortable fit for me.

Like all things I seem to try to do, it doesn't have extreme ambitions for cool new things never seen before, it's just supposed to do what it claims to do and do those things well. When compared with something like ClockworkMod, for example, it is a rather limited toolset. That said, I think it also can suit the needs of most folks that are just looking for a tool that will allow them to install updates, create and restore volume backups, properly wipe their devices, or convert from the RFS filesystem to EXT4 (so far anyway!)

GeeWiz Recovery is based on the Android AOSP 2.3.5 (not 2.2.2) Recovery code and is not a derivative work of any other recovery. Many features are undeniably common, and I would be lying if I claimed I didn't need to look at projects like ClockworkMOD for assistance on more than one occasion. GeeWiz recovery is specifically written for the STOCK Samsung SCH-I500 (Fascinate/Mesmerize) device and cannot be properly used on any other devices without modifications. This tool also cannot be properly used on SCH-I500 devices that have been converted to "MTD" (CyangoenMOD, MIUI, etc).



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

>> NAVIGATION <<

VOLUME UP: Move menu item selection bar up
VOLUME DOWN: Move menu item selection bar down
MENU: Go back to previous menu
HOME: Go back to main menu
BACK: Select highlighted menu item
SEARCH: No operation

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

>> MENUS <<

MAIN MENU

Install Update Package - Opens an SDCARD file browser and allows you to select an Update-Zip package to be installed to your device
Wipe Device Data - Shows the Wipe Device Data Menu
Manage Volumes - Shows the Manage Volumes Menu
Tools - Shows the Tools Menu
Exit - Exits recovery and reboots the device

WIPE DEVICE DATA MENU

Wipe Cache - Wipes (formats) the CACHE volume of the device
Wipe Dalvik Cache - Wipes (deletes) the DALVIK-CACHE from the device. Use this option after flashing any non GeeWiz ROM to your device (GW does it automatically)
Wipe Battery Statistics - Wipes (deletes) the battery statistics file from the device. Use this option with a fully charged battery to reset your battery meter.
Wipe all user Data (Factory Reset) - Executes a Factory Reset operation. All user data not on the SDCARD will be deleted, and all data volumes will be formatted. This option will reformat data volumes with either RFS or EXT4, depending on what file system is already in place. To convert file systems, please see MANAGE VOLUMES MENU below.

MANAGE VOLUMES MENU

Mount Volumes - Allows you to specifically mount a device volume by name. This operation is not required for other Recovery operations, they will automatically mount or unmount volumes as needed
Unmount Volumes - Allows you to specifically unmount a device volume by name. This operation is not required for other Recovery operations, they will automatically mount or unmount volumes as needed
Backup Volumes - Allows you to generate a backup of a device volume by name. Please see BACKUP/RESTORE below for more details.
Restore Volumes - Allows you to restore a volume from a backup generated by this Recovery. Please see BACKUP/RESTORE below for more details.
Convert Volumes - Allows you to convert device volumes to and from the RFS and EXT4 file systems. Volumes with only one valid target file system are not shown in this list.
Format Volumes - Allows you to format device volumes with either the RFS or EXT4 file systems. Volumes with more than one valid target file system will prompt with an additional selector to allow you to choose the desired file system.

TOOLS MENU

Restart ADBD Service - Restarts the Android Debug Bridge (ADBD) service. Select this option if you are having difficulty connecting to the device through ADB while Recovery is running

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

>> BACKUP/RESTORE <<

This version of GeeWiz Recovery allows you to back up and restore the individual volumes of the device to the SDCARD, using a handful of different formats. Currently, the destination location of these backups on the SDCARD is fixed as /sdcard/backup/volume and cannot be changed. Future versions of GeeWiz recovery will provide for complete device backup/restore operations.

BACKUP FILE NAMES/FORMATS

When generating a volume backup, you will be prompted to choose from one of four different formats, which are listed below. All backup files will be generated with the filename format of VOLUME-YYYYMMDD[-N].EXT, where VOLUME is the volume name, YYYYMMDD is the current date, -N is an optional unique number used to differentiate between multiple backups made on the same day, and EXT is the default file extension for the selected backup type and compression setting. (Currently compression cannot be disabled)

EXT4 IMAGE [.ximg/.ximg.gz] - This option will generate an EXT4 image of the selected volume. These images can be used to create volume images that can be mounted and manipulated on other Linux systems. The generated image (uncompressed) will be of equal size to the source volume.

EXT4 SPARSE IMAGE [.simg/.szimg] - This option will generate a 'Sparse' EXT4 image of the selected volume. These images are similar to a full EXT4 image, but are only as large as the data on the volume requires. An android tool called simg2img is required to convert these back into a standard EXT4 image before they can be used on other Linux systems. When compression is enabled (.szimg files), a custom tool is required to unpack them into standard EXT4 images; this tool is available upon request, however I did contribute the necessary code changes back to AOSP with the hopes it will someday be included in Android.

RAW DUMP [.img/.img.gz] - This option will create a raw dump image file from the selected volume. If the volume is EXT4, the output is very similar to an uncompressed EXT4 IMAGE. If the volume is RFS, this image becomes an ODIN-compatible dump of the volume.

YAFFS2 IMAGE [.yimg/.yimg.gz] - This option creates a YAFFS2 image file from the selected volume extremely similar to, if not identical to, the backup files made by ClockworkMOD Recovery. These images are used for general-purpose backup and restore needs; they provide the fastest means of backing up and restoring a device volume. GeeWiz Recovery uses this format internally when converting volume file systems to provide the fastest possible conversion.

It is not necessary to know what format was used to generate a backup when it's being restored or if it has been compressed or not. The restore code will automatically determine this, and can successfully restore any format listed above. Backup files generated by other means or recovery systems are not guaranteed to be able to be restored with GeeWiz Recovery.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

>> INSTALLATION <<

GeeWiz Recovery can either be installed by flashing it directly with ODIN or if you already have an Edify-compatible custom Recovery like ClockworkMod installed you can use that as well. Install it as you would any flash update with these tools, I wouldn't dream of being able to provide better direction than what already exists out here on the Internet for using them.

Download links for GeeWiz Recovery are included as part of the main post above, and will be maintained/updated in that post.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

>> SOURCE CODE <<

All Source Code for GeeWiz recovery is included as part of my SCH-I500 Froyo Kernel GIT. Explanation as to how to compile it or what tools you need to compile are beyond the scope of this post, but please feel free to contact me if you give it a try and run into difficulties.

https://github.com/djp952/sch-i500-froyo

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

>> REUSE <<

If anyone finds this recovery of value and would like to include it their SCH-I500 ROMs or KERNELs, please feel free to do so. Link back here, include it in your updates, compile your own and change the menu colors to purple, whatever you want to do with it is fine with me. If you want to mention my name, that'd be cool, but is certainly not a requirement of any kind. If I didn't want it to be used, I wouldn't have posted all the source code (so far) to github!!

No I'm using the powerwashed TW ROM as we speak, I am just glad some other developers are doing some work on TW ROMs . Alot the developers have jumped ship and either got new devices to play with, or are working on the MTD ROMs. Honestly I'm no big fan of TW, but this had to come back to have a phone that actually works.

Well, "jumped ship" kind of implies that they abandoned a loyal crew of some sort rather than simply getting a new phone Maybe not what you meant, so just a friendly heads-up. A lot of folks (not saying you're one of them) forget / vocally refuse to accept that most devs crank out professional-level goodies for the rest of us simply because it's fun or otherwise fulfilling for them.

Tensions seem especially high in Fascinate land right now, so just be especially mindful of syntax when discussing the devs. Again, just trying to help, no condescension intended whatsoever...

FYI, I have to pull the CWM update.zip version temporarily. I missed a couple entires in the update script that are causing problems with permissions. The ODIN/Heimdall version is fine.

Sorry!! I'll fix it and repost as soon as I get home from work. It was a dumb mistake.

Oh, and I got the SpareParts.apk by building from source (android_2.2.2_r1 branch). Didn't have to do anything special at all.
