Announcement from Phil3759: End Of Support

<< New in version 6: Smoother touch with kinetics, basic theme support, KitKat ready, MTK devices support >>

End Of Support

Project Status: No Longer Updated

As I mentioned before, I have a lot of new important projects in my real life. I am very happy to abandon this project for real life alternatives.
CWM is a dead project for now, until some dev resurrects it. I was about to do, until these new projects came.

Current version will probably work a while for many devices. Some devices with new ROM installers could have issues. Just use TWRP and avoid the new CM Simple Recovery

If the current version works for you, there is no reason you don't use it though. No need to bitch in all threads because it doesn't work for you. Just move on to other alternatives.

Developers info: ** New: you can now build full version from my git sources **
You can also try to get support on IRC on freenode: #PhilZ-Touch (thanks @Bhargav97)

You can fetch source from this link (cm-11.0 branch):

I no longer maintain the older branches
Before you start, make sure you can build stock cwm from cm-11.0 source
Once you can build stock CWM, just replace your bootable/recovery folder with this one and lunch for your device

Device tree changes examples:
They are minimal and detailed below
You can see a few examples from here:
device tree:
vold exfat/ntfs/f2fs kernel support:
selinux extensions for extra partitions:

To avoid modifying and for all devices I support, I modified the build makefile:

Those are the only optional changes to get all features of this recovery mod.
To use f2fs/exfat/ntfs kernel support, you should learn how to modify the kernel too. Else, skip the vold changes and flags (see below details)

Optional PhilZ Touch extra flags:
The below info are optional. You should still be able to build without editing anything in device tree
  1. bootable/recovery/boardconfig/
    It is a quick mode to add device specific tags without altering device tree. That way I can spot needed changes easier.
    # Info on some tags:
    - KERNEL_EXFAT_MODULE_NAME: This will force minivold to use much faster kernel modules instead of slow fuse
    it will only work if you have modified vold sources (contact me for info)
    you'll also have to copy modules to ramdisk and load them in init.rc or a loader script
    you need either an exfat enabled prebuilt kernel or to compile exfat modules along kernel
    you also need to patch minivold:
      Same as above, but for ntfs.
            will enable f2fs support and ext4 <-> f2fs conversion and backup migration
            obviously you need to add f2fs support into the kernel
            read about the extra.fstab use to use specific and distinct f2fs and ext4 mount options
            else, it will drop to bare minimal ext4 or f2fs mount options if not defined in recovery.fstab
    - BOARD_USE_MTK_LAYOUT :=   true
            will enable backup/restore of boot, recovery and uboot partitions on MTK devices
    - BOARD_MTK_BOOT_LABEL :=   "/bootimg"
            This flag is optional, it is used only if BOARD_USE_MTK_LAYOUT is defined
            If not defined while previous flag is enabled, default boot label is assumed "/bootimg"
            Else, it is assigned the defined value
            In fstab.device used by recovery (recovery.fstab), boot mount point must be the same as what we
            define in label
            It is also mandatory that it is defined to real device label (cat /proc/dumchar_info)
            Partition size is grabbed during backup/restore from /proc/dumchar_info
            uboot label is defined as "/uboot". It is automatically backed-up/restored with boot and recovery
            recovery label is always assumed to be "/recovery"
      (optional) for all devices below 1024x768 resolution.
      it forces default touch sensitivity to a lower value. It can be altered in GUI Settings
      This will override ro.bootloader.mode. Mostly used for Samsung devices to access download mode
      The device name that will be displayed on recovery start and in About dialogue
      Needed to be able to alter screen brightness
    - ro.cwm.backup_partitions:
      this can be set on boot or during compile into default.prop. exp in
      it will add support to backup/restore those partitions in nandroid custom jobs provided they are also defined in recovery.fstab
  2. device/brand/phone_name/
  3. extra.fstab documentation:
    * Needed until fs_mgr_read_fstab() starts to parse blk_device2 entries
    * extra.fstab sample:
    # add here entries already existing in main device fstab, but for which you want a blk_device2, fs_type2 or fs_options2
    # mount point must be the same, mmcblk device must be your device true path
    # you can set the f2fs mount options for partitions you want to be able to toggle between f2fs/ext4
    # it will enable faster transfer speed for devices supporting usb mount storage
    # makes it possible to partition vold managed storage (sdcard/usb disks) and format it to ext2/ext3
    # used also to stat for size of mtd/yaffs2 partitions
    # blk_device2           # mount_point           fs_type2    fs_options2     flags (not used in extra.fstab code)
    /dev/block/mmcblk0p28   /storage/sdcard0 	auto	    defaults		defaults
    /dev/block/mmcblk1p1	/storage/sdcard1 	auto	    defaults		defaults
    /dev/block/sda1		/storage/usbdisk0 	auto	    defaults		defaults
    /dev/block/mmcblk0p30		/data		f2fs      [options] 	[flags]

If it doesn't build or errors, post log/error here and I will help if I can

Adding Full PhilZ Touch version support for your device

  • Compile for your device by replacing bootable/recovery contents with files from my git
  • Set the needed options in bootable/recovery/boardconfig/
  • It is very important to set the correct options so that libtouch_gui can be initialized properly
  • Optional: you can add your signature here, but do not remove other About ui_prints please, keep credits
  • post a link to your thread or attach your recovery.img here and I will upload them to and main OP for official support
  • If you have errors, bugs or need a specific feature for your custom kernel, just let me know by PM
  • If errors are related to libtouch_gui, try to disable the PHILZ_TOUCH_RECOVERY flag here by adding a #
    Then, post here your error log when compiling

Missing sources in my github:
none, it is all open source now
- all gui options, include touch code
- Create from current ROM or from pre-existing backups
- However, they are all enabled through the new libtouch_gui library. Just set your flags and compile it

Will libtouch_gui sources published?
They are open source now
Not for now. Why?
Answer: in this post

Can I include and use your libtouch_gui in my recovery mod ?
You are welcome, but:
- do not reverse code
- do not binary edit it
- add credits in your code
- do not remove credits headers from sources and give proper credit in your thread site
- post a link to this thread on your site/thread
- push fixes to my github if you find bugs that you fix or if you add new features

PhilZ Touch Quick Guide
It is based on Koush clockworkmod 6.x to which I added many features and a full reliable touch interface
It brings a true touch and scroll interface, fully customizable GUI, theme support, advanced nandroid options and much more

How to select your .android_secure path
  • In Custom Backup and Restore operations, you can select the target/source for or disable it
  • In stock backup/restore operations, include those started with ROM Manager, you can also force a target/source for .android_secure
  • basically, recovery will check first external storage for a .android_secure folder. If it doesn't find it, it will look in internal storage
  • If you want for example .android_secure to be in internal sd, just delete .android_secure folder from external sd and ensure there is a .android_secure folder in internal sd
  • for external sd, just ensure there is a .android_secure folder in it. It will be chosen what ever is the internal sd state

Custom Backup and Restore menu
  • This is one of the most powerful features of this recovery.
    It is made completely open source code, built from sratch. Just keep credits headers and give proper credit if you use them
  • You can select which partitions you want to backup or restore
  • You can choose your .android_secure source and target or even disable it
  • You can set it to reboot directly after job is done
  • backups will go under the folder clockworkmod/backup (please move all contents of custom_backup folder used in previous versions to the default backup folder in cwm)
  • TWRP backups go under stock TWRP/BACKUPS/device_id folder and will be automatically recognized by TWRP
  • Custom Restore Menu allows you to restore from any of the stock clockworkmod backups, the custom backups or the TWRP backups
  • efs is backed up under clockworkmod/backup/.efs_backup
    - efs must be selected alone for backup in cwm mode
    - it will create 2 copies: a tar and raw img backup using cat/dd command
    - to restore efs, under Custom Restore menu, select efs only and toggle between tar and .img
    - restore .img format is advised, but tar will work under most circumstances
  • modem.bin files can be named any_thing.bin and must go under clockworkmod/backup/.modem_bin
    - with that, you can flash modem.bin files that come with official firmware (may need unlocked devices for some models)
  • if you disable md5, your backups will no more be recognized by stock cwm builds. Look at next step to regenerate md5 for stock cwm compatibility. Otherwise, all stock and custom backups are backward compatible with stock cwm (except special partitions like preload, recovery, modem and efs which stock cwm doesn't support)
  • you can now recreate md5 sum for any backup you want. Use with caution!

Open Recovery Script Support (ORS): revised and adapted from original sk8erwitskil source
  • On start, recovery looks automatically for "/cache/recovery/openrecoveryscript" installed by goomanager or any tasker. If it finds it, it is run and phone will reboot
  • You can also add custom ors scripts you edit your self:
    When pressing the ors menu, it will look at default locations for your custom scripts:
    "clockworkmod/ors" first in extra storage, then in internal sd. Put your custom scripts there with file extension .ors
    That way you can access your jobs (flash, wipe, backup, restore...) instantly
    If no scripts are found in default folder, you get option to browse both storage volumes for a custom location
  • To learn how to write ors scripts to automate your backup/restore/wipe/flash tasks, read here, it is very easy:
  • Give Goomanager a try
  • All backup and restore options are supported include special partitions 1, 2 and 3 and even extra 4 and 5 partitions (could add modem, efs and preload linked to them later)
  • /preload will be included with /system if you enabled the /preload option in Misc Nandroid Settings
  • you have an extra here: you can set the target volume for ors backups under Misc Nandroid Settings menu
  • ors backups can be set to either TWRP or CWM format

Aroma File Manager Support *Adapted from amarullz and sk8erwitskil
You get here the possibility to browse your phone with root access in a friendly GUI file browser, while being in recovery
You even now get a terminal emulator to run in recovery
  • Download Aroma File Manager from its Home Page
  • Get the last version and rename the file
  • Put the in "clockworkmod/aromafm/" in any of the storage volumes
  • In recovery, tap the Aroma File Manager menu or double tap any part of the screen outside menus
  • It will launch the file manager automatically
  • Double tap gesture linked to Aroma File Manager can be altered in the GUI Settings menu

Touch GUI Preferences:
This is another unique feature of this recovery and is built from scratch
  • You can toggle through 4 touch modes:
    Full Touch: menus are validated by touching them. I added extra checks to make it robust to validation by error while scrolling.
    Double Tap: menus are highlighted on first touch. To validate action, you need to double tap the same menu
    Semi Touch: the classic semi-touch interface I enhanced. Menus are selected/highlighted on first touch. You can scroll by swiping up/down, but no validation on touch.
    Disable Touch: touch code completely disabled. You have all gui options left, but only hardware keys
  • When Full Touch mode is selected, it will automatically set recommended menu height, touch accuracy and scroll sensitivity. You can alter them later if you want
  • Scroll sensitivity controls scrolling on swipe up/down. Lower values are the most sensitive. Adjust this based on selected menu height
  • Touch accuracy: increase it if your touch gestures are not well accounted for
  • Config files are saved in /data/philz-touch/philz-touch_x.ini file.
  • You can do a backup of your settings file, it will go under /sdcard/clockworkmod/philz-touch.ini.bak
  • You can choose to be prompted to restore your settings whenever they are wiped while you have a backup. You can also set recovery to auto-restore them when needed. This check is done when you reboot to main system from within recovery
  • There are many gesture actions that you can setup at your wish (some default actions are setup by default)
  • Long press/move is the bad equivalent to a long press gesture action: just that after 0.6 sec of touch, slightly move your finger or change the pressure surface without actually lifting it
  • Your screen should auto-dim automatically after one minute and turn off after 3 mn. You can change those time settings. Just touch the screen to reset brightness and turn it on (some devices need to press hardware button)
  • All GUI parts can be customized: menu hight, text colors, menu colors, selection colors, background color and icon, menu seprators, battery and clock, header text...
  • To setup a custom background image: put a png image with your device resolution in a folder clockworkmod/custom_res
  • You can take screen shots from recovery display by the slide left gesture (change it at your wish). Pics captures will go under clockworkmod/screen_shots folder. External storage will be always used first. If no external storage is found, internal storage is used. You can take up to 999 pics before it resets to 1

Setup Free Browse Mode and Multi-zip Installer:

Free Browse Mode:
  • You can setup a default folder from where the Install Zip menu will start
  • From within your set default folder, you can now browse backward up to the root file system to install a zip file
Multi-zip Installer menu:
  • Lets you select multiple zip files to flash at the same time
  • The zip files must go into a subfolder under: "clockworkmod/multi_flash"
  • At least one subfolder with your zip files must be created. You can create as many subfolders as you want
  • exp: clockworkmod/multi_flash/NEAT_ROM_files

Pause on Logs:
  • Pause on Logs: when enabled, after flashing a zip file or doing a nandroid job, you will be prompted for a key to return to menu display. That way, logs are kept in full screen. Obviously, no pause will be performed on boot scripts and multi-zip operations

How to Install

This will depend on your device. Please look first for help in your device specific thread.
Provided instructions here ARE NOT VALID for all phone

Recovery (.zip) packages instructions
They come in the form of .zip files that can be flashed in cwm recovery
  • Download file
  • Put the previously downloaded file on your sd card
  • Boot into recovery (volume up+home+power)
  • Select "Install zip" and browser to your downloaded zip file.
  • Now select the fileyou copied in previous step
  • You will have PhilZ Touch Recovery flashed

Odin packages instructions: Samsung Only
They come in the form of .tar.md5 file
  • boot into download mode
  • start odin3 and configure it as in picture below
  • connect phone in download mode to PC via USB
  • press start to flash the tar.md5 package
  • normally, phone should auto-reboot into recovery.
    If it reboots into main system and your recovery remains stock, repeat above steps and untick "autoreboot" in odin. Once flash is done, keep pressing the 3 buttons combo to for a reboot into recovery.You should see the new CWM
  • when in recovery, if you choose option "reboot system now" and you get "yes - disable flash recovery", select that option to avoid stock recovery overwriting cwm
  • to remove yellow triangle, use TriangleAway

Root your phone and reset Yellow Triangle

1- what happens if I wipe/format/factory reset my data/media device?
format /data: only data is wiped, exclude /data/media:
cd /data ; for f in $(ls -a | grep -v ^media$); do rm -rf $f; done
format /sdcard : only /data/media or /data/media/0 (depending on setting you choose in Advanced menu) is wiped
rm -rf /sdcard/*
rm -rf /sdcard/.*
format /data and /data/media: will issue a true format on /data volume, obviously killing /data/media

Factory reset: will also preserve /data/media (rm -rf)

Clean to Install a New ROM: will do a factory reset (format /data, /cache, /datadata and sd-ext) + format /system +/- /preload. Your system will not boot until you install a new ROM

2- I backed up my data and I cannot find it when I boot into phone
Stock CWM and CM Updater app are using a non conventional linking for internal storage: internal storage is linked as /sdcard/0
PhilZ touch supports true /sdcard paths by linking it to either /data/media or /data/media/0
/sdcard/0 has no meaning in PhilZ Touch unless you set it to /data/media

By default, if a folder /data/media/0 exists, PhilZ Touch will default /sdcard to it, else it will use /data/media.
The advantage is for all stock +4.2 users: they can directly access their backups from /sdcard, while in main system and see them on PC in MTP mode.

You can override that setting in Advanced Menu and force it to /data/media or revert to /data/media/0
I recommend moving all your old cwm path to /data/media/0/clockworkmod and set sdcard to /data/media/0 unless you are switching between stock CWM and this mod or you need CM Updater app

To sum it up: for stock +4.2 rom users, keep default (/data/media/0). For CM users, if you frequently use CM Updater to flash in recovery, force /data/media

3- I come from stock CWM/TWRP and PhilZ Touch cannot see my backups
Read Answer 2

4- Aroma file manager doesn't start when I double tap screen
Read the guide to install aroma file manager.
Path changed in v5!
Read the /data/media/0 faq 2

5- CMUpdater cannot flash downlaoded files
If you get a /sdcard/0 error, it means you have /sdcard set as /data/media/0 in recovery
The reason is that CM app doesn't support /data/media/0 and is faking recovery with a /sdcard/0 implementation

You still can alter the setting and force it to /data/media in Advanced menu. This will give full compatibility with cwm, CM roms and CM Updater

6- How to flash a boot.img or recovery.img file?
- Put your boot.img or/and recovery.img files under a subfolder in clockworkmod/backup on sdcards
exp: /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/cm-10.1-nightly_20130713/boot.img
- Navigate to Backup and Restore / Custom Backup and Restore / Custom Restore Job
- Unselect all partitions except boot and/or recovery
- Select >> Start Custom Backup Job <<
- Browse to your backup location until your cm-10.1-nightly_20130713, and select any file inside it
- You are done

7- My backups take a long time to complete
First, make sure you set compression to fast or low. Low compression setting gives around 30% compression with quiet no impact on speed. Rising compression value makes backups extremely slow with very little gain on space.

Stock CWM uses exfat fuse but without any buffering of writes. The end of it is a non usable thing for any backup because of an incredibly slow write speed.
TWRP uses exfat fuse binary to do the backups + caches tar writes to improve speed. This could cause data corruption on some devices.
PhilZ Touch uses patched kernel with native exfat support (static mode) for Samsung devices and soon other brands. This is supposed to be the faster and safest way.
However, it seems to struggle on some devices because of the logging mode used by CWM

- hide progress bar in Nandroid Settings menu: this will dramatically improve speed for many devices
- do not use exfat
- change exfat card to another brand. Ask in forum what people are using with good speed
- some users reported a real slow down when card/device is hot. Let your phone rest from intensive read/writes before starting a backup
- switch to another recovery like twrp if you cannot live with it. PhilZ Touch is compatible with TWRP and can backup/restore twrp format

8- You think you found a bug?
- Make sure your issue is recovery related
- All external sdcard issues: first format in PC with primary partition, tons of people are formatting as logical and come cry
- Reproduce your issue and while in recovery:
- Go to Advanced / Report Error
- Copy the /sdcard/clockworkmod/philz_recovery.log file and attach it here
- Give detailed info about your issues
- Without these, there is little chance I can help you, so, do not get mad if I do not answer

9- Loki things
Locked bootloader? How to lokify before flashing:
  • In Advanced Menu / Toggle Loki Support : enable auto loki
  • Flash the zip file and you are done

PhilZ Touch recoveries that come in a zip file format AND released after v6.01.2 have a script in the zip to lokify the recovery image during flash even if you are coming from older recoveries or TWRP (thanks @Wootever)

The included recovery.img in the zip is not lokified, it will be lokified during flash

If you are using a new CWM or PhilZ Touch with auto-loki enabled, please disable it before flashing my zip files to avoid any issue with double lokifying, if ever possible!

Unlocked bootloader users can still extract the recovery.img file and restore it from inside recovery:
  • put recovery.img in /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/philz_update/recovery.img
  • In Custom Backup and Restore menu, unselect all except recovery
  • validate to browse to the update recovery.img
  • done

10- Assert error 7 on device name when installing roms and updates
Start of v6.02.2, recoveries are based on cm-11.0 (KitKat) device tree.
In all zip installers, you have a file called update-binary. It is the executable that will process and interpret all commands in updater-script, which will do all actions.

Older update-binary files cannot access system assert props on kitkat based kernels.
- edit your updater-script in zip file and remove all assert lines checking for device name. Use notepad++ or a linux editor
- manually change your update-binary in the zip with a new one you take from a cm-11.0 release
- revert to an older recovery before 6.02.2
- ask your rom releaser to update his update-binary

Note: start of 6.09.6, this error is fixed. However, you can end up with error in FAQ 11

11- various status 7 errors: format() expects 5 args, got 4 - set_permissions errors...

First read FAQ 10
Start of 6.09.6, recovery will analyze the update-binary that comes with your zip package. If it detects an outdated version, it will be automatically replaced during flash.

This will fix all assert getprop errors discussed in FAQ 10 (often used to check if the zip is meant to be flashed on your device)

However, doing so, can expose you to a bunch of new errors if the update-binary is +2 years old. In that case, the updater-script code used could not match the new update-binary:

The error "format() expects 5 args, got 4" is caused by not using the below new format command in updater-script:

format(fs_type, partition_type, location, fs_size, mount_point)

format("ext4", "EMMC", "/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/system", "0", "/system");
The error due to failure on set_perm is caused by using 2 years old update-binary
New ones will abort installation when setting permission fails on any file, while it was previously allowed to continue

- start of 6.15.4, PhilZ Touch added an option to force using the update-binary that comes in your zip. It will make it work except for the assert for device name error. However, that error is very easy to fix by any one (see FAQ 10). The option doesn't stick on reboot, you have to manually set it when you flash such files. It is done on purpose to keep you warned about potential risks using such bad scripts often coming from a copy paste procedure
- hammer your ROM maker to keep up to his time, and look closer at his scripting and update-binary engine used

12- Time fix for Qualcom Chips and other devices
On many Qualcom devices, setting the time is disabled on different levels, depending on the device
New PhilZ Touch versions added a workaround to this limitation. The fixes do not modify in anyway the RTC flags in kernel, as it is not recommended by Qualcom

- Qualcom Time Daemon:
This is the recommended option. It will load the time daemon from /system and will keep your recovery time in sync with ROM.
However, many CM/AOKP/Custom Roms do not have a proper implementation of the daemon. Ask your ROM dev to properly implement Qualcom proprietary binaries and RTC permissions.

- Use RTC Time Offset:
This is the second workaround, recommended for ROMs without proper time daemon. You have to enable the option. After that, it will ask you to setup the actual time/date manually. Do it AND Validate your choice to apply the actual time. Enabling the offset mode without manually setting correct time AND validating your option has no effect!

- Try Force Persist on Reboot:
This is your last choice, if all other options failed. Disable previous 2 options and enable this one. You will need to setup time/date manually AND validate your choice. Else, it won't have any effect.

- Normal/manual mode: Non Qualcom based devices, can just use the default mode to set time/date manually

13- My ROM maker advises another recovery
If an installer script cannot run on PhilZ Touch, it won't run on CWM. PhilZ Touch is just a CWM mod in that regard. Installer is not modified

Rule of thumb: If a ROM cooker says "YOU MUST USE A GIVEN RECOVERY", be sure there are bugs in his work
A properly formatted updater-script, shell child scripts or aroma scripts should be able to run on any recovery as it should call real blk device paths and not "pre-defined" mount points

Mount points WILL vary from recovery to another and maybe from a version to another. Relying on them is a bad idea

Also, many do miss proper edify scripting rules:
- /sdcard is a symlink, not a folder since years now (/data/media)
- you cannot extract without mounting first
- you must create your paths. Installer won't be verifying you did so
- you cannot mount vold paths (sdcard, usb storage...) by calling the mount point in a shell script. Look at your fstab under recovery to understand why

If a rom maker has issues to understand this, he can ask for help here or in an edify scripting thread

14- F2FS <-> EXT4 format migration
  • Under "mounts and storage" menu, if "toggle f2fs <-> ext4 migration" is enabled, whenever we try to format an ext4 or f2fs partition, we get a prompt to convert between f2fs/ext4
  • To convert /data on /data/media devices, we must as always select the "/data and /data/media" menu
  • Nandroid implementation to migrate your data/ROM from ext4 to f2fs:
    - backup your existing data
    - in "mounts and storage", format the partitions you want to convert to f2fs
    - restore your data
    - on restore, if both backup image and target partition has different fstype and fstype is either ext4 or f2fs, we favour target devise fsytpe (data migration)
