Hello world !!!

I've created a project of a new kind : The RecoverX Project

The goal of this project is to gather ALL the recoveries for ALL android devices in ONE tool which install them on the devices. RecoverX is coded in C++ thanks to QtSDK and allow to install a recovery on more than 150 different devices !!!

You just have to select your device and the recovery, click "Install" and RecoverX does the rest !!! It's that simple

This program require different prerequesties, depending of your device

- Wether you need an unlocked bootloader to flash the recovery partition (and fastboot drivers on your PC)
- Wether you need root access and usb debugging activated (if busybox is not installed, RecoverX will ask you the permission to install it).

This program have been published on XDA News : Here

Here is the list of supported devices :


Finally, a small preview







Awesome !!! Where is the download link ???

I've published a new version as some people have problem with "remount" the device. I also fixed the "Cross-device link" problem.

Here is the newest version : RecoverX v1.1

hmmm,
where is the recovery installed with this tool?
and so what's the point of this for custom kernels? (recovery is embedded in kernel)

or is it only for stock kernel? (for stock you could add a busybox installer)

am not sure it is really useful for our range of devices (i mean shakira/mimmi/robyn)

PS: this idea i good, and i hope for good improvements

Good idea !!! I will try to add a busybox installer soon. And yes, this is only for stock kernel because custom kernels already have a recovery included in the kernel (such as ALFS or nAa which got CWM).

And the main fucntion of the program is to simplify the installation of a recovery for beginners.

Moreover, thanks to this tool, you don't have to install xRecovery if you wish to install CWM with xRecovery.

And what improvements do you think ???

you should tell it in the OP that it is only for stock

ideas for next :
  • busybox
  • colorful soft
  • browse-able menu or GUI
  • auto device recognition using build.prop with confirmation asked to the ser before installing

@fifo171 : I would be very honored for that but I've got already a lot of work and, on top of that, X8.toolbox isn't coded in C++, so I'm not a specialist.

@matmutant : I take note of your ideas and I already tell that is for 2.1 stock rom in the post : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1773227

@static28 : not for the moment but I work to add CWM for X10, X10 Mini Pro & XS
