With a little modding, I was able to get ROMRacer's Atrix recovery console working on the Photon, I PM'd him letting him know the change that needs to be made for it to work, so if he post a thread over here, I will close this one.

So for the time being, here's a true CWM recovery console for the Photon.

I chose the blue version for this but I imagine that if ROMRacer makes a thread, he will post the other colors also.


And as the title states, THIS IS ONLY FOR UNLOCKED PHONES


Install instructions

Extract the zip, put the recovery.img in the same directory as adb and get the phone into fastboot mode the same way you did to unlock it

And type this
Code:
fastboot erase recovery

fastboot flash recovery recovery.img

make sure debugging is enabled then run the command fastboot devices to make sure fastboot is seeing yours
