*oh and I have some new clockwork recoveries if you all want these too, they appear fine with the minimal test I've done, if you all want I can upload these too - built from newest source something like 6.0.4.6? cant recall the versions and am lazy now, but built for kitkat roms

Working ADB sideload confirmed
Mind sharing how did you fix that?
My idea is that the problem is in fstab.recovery, but I'm not entirely sure on that. Could you please share "device-related" changes for TWRP?

Sure thing, I hope have some time in front of a PC this next week, I'll put up a new build with sd-ext fix and post a github link and clean up the op. Sorry just haven't had like ant quality PC time in the past few months

Alright, finally got around to flashing this. All the basic functionality I used CWM for, works perfect in TWRP. Pretty awesome

Why switch?
Hey @demkantor,

great work again, I guess, thanks. We vision users are lucky to have folks like you still working on our device.

One overarching question--why switch recoveries, and if I do, to this TWRP or your (or Nevergone's?) CWM? I have used 4EXT (I think at your suggestion, in fact) ever since I rooted my phone in August, 2012, and no problems. I have kept up with all the latest ROMs in the Flinny line (and a few others) including 11.0, though I have now stepped back to his last 10.1 build while KitKat needs fixing. My needs are pretty basic, I suppose...I just flash the occasional new ROM, make backups, occasionally restore them (like in going from 11.0 back to 10.1.) I rarely touch adb...it just hasn't been necessary. I am perfectly happy with my phone, and marvel at its longevity!

So, stick with the latest 4EXT, or jump to something newer?

Thanks,

p-d

ps still at the U? Go to Al's for me sometime, I miss breakfast there.

Thanks!
In truth I still prefer 4ext myself, its my favorite recovery but development on it has slowed over the past year. The only reason I bothered to make this was for @AYEHAN who has a broken SD tray and needed to be able to sideload a ROM, currently 4ext is lacking this feature. So if your current recovery is still working for you then I would suggest to stick with it, TWRP is nice and I use it on most my devices (as 4ext isn't available) but if it ain't broke don't fix it!
Yeah last few days of brake before the new semester begins, and for sure will go to Al's, best whole in the wall there is!

One major bug I came across, is it will no longer flash roms. Like, regardless of what the rom is it just won't flash it, it spits out
assert failed: get prop("ro.product.device") == "
E:Error executing updater binary in zip '/sdcard
,
and I know these roms all work since it was flashing them beforehand. Just thought I'd let you know

*Edit*
So any rom other than G2Slim won't flash for me. CM10.1, Flinny's CM11, etc. It's so odd
*Edit 2*
I installed CWM v5 again just to make sure it wasn't a problem with the roms themselves or my sd card, and things install fine, so it must be a random bug with twrp, hopefully a very rare one at that
