TWRP Recovery

For Galaxy Ace

Team Win Recovery Project 2.x, or twrp2 for short, is a custom recovery built with ease of use and customization in mind. Its a fully touch driven user interface no more volume rocker or power buttons to mash. The GUI is also fully XML driven and completely theme-able. You can change just about every aspect of the look and feel.



BUGS:
If you have found a bug, please consider posting it here.

SUPPORT:
Live support is available via #twrp on Freenode with your IRC client or just click this link.

SPECIAL NOTE:
This is the first build of TWRP and may have some unknown bugs. I take no responsibility of your devices. This is "testing" phase (for some days only). Help in testing if you wish to otherwise stay away until a final release. Don't post back here that: "You destroyed my phone", "You are cheating", "You are playing with my device".

One more thing, we are using androidarmv6 sources and if you are asking for help on IRC channel mentioned above then please mention there that: "we are not using CM or OMNI sources, we are using androidarmv6 sources".

CREDITS:
TeamWin: For this awesome open-source recovery.
androidarmv6 team: To make all these possible.
Me: For compiling it for Galaxy Ace.

DOWNLOAD:
http://www.upload.ee/files/3991497/recovery.img.html

INSTALLATION / UPDATING:
-From the above download link, you'll get a 'recovery.img' file.
-Put that file at the root of sdcard (means, not in any folder)
-Now, open Terminal Emulator and give this command:
Code:
su
You'll be asked to grant superuser permissions, grant them.
-Now, give this command:
Code:
flash_image recoveryonly /sdcard/recovery.img
And wait for 2-3 seconds until it jumps to a new line. Now, close Terminal Emulator.
-Now, normally reboot to recovery and enjoy new recovery!

I think, I should remind you: Recovery is independent of ROM.

It can flash everything which the new kitkat update-binary allow.
If anything fails to flash, just replace /META-INF/com/google/android/update-binary file inside that zip from cm11 or omni4.4 and it will flash.

works great, but if formatting or installing and you accidentaly bump the back button it stops what it is doing, can also corrupt the partition, installs ALL roms from cm9 through to cm11 and all scripts/mods install too,, thanks for this version,, i didnt like the other versions they were a yuck colour, i like the black and gray theme

I just had some look today on your device's development forum and found that @Mardon has already made this recovery for your device (Because, I was confused as I didn't receive a single THANK on any of my posts).

Please note that my TWRP has no relation with @Mardon's TWRP. He has used omniarmv6 sources while I've used official omni sources and the androidarmv6 sources.

I've worked hard enough and researched on everything and have made this recovery. This build is the closest one to an official build unlike little buggy build of @Mardon: Bad colors (not official colors), maybe brightness settings are missing, maybe you can't flash some zips with that recovery, etc.

And...ofcourse, you won't be able to flash stock rom using this recovery because it uses samsung's crappy rfs.

Here's something I need you guys to test:

[ROOT]TWRP Coordinator

It's a newly released app (released just before 10-15 minutes) by TeamWin.

I just need a report if everything's working as it should or not.

WARNING: Don't use the option to update TWRP because we are using an unofficial build. Other than that, everything should work but the app is still BETA...Try at your own risk.

What to do?

-Install my TWRP.
-Remember, app needs root.
-Then, start using app's features and report here if found any bugs.

Your report would be appreciated! Thanks.
