Everything Should Be Functioning Properly & Some Extra Features Have Been Added.

I love Amon_RA's recovery images and decided to make one using his source code for the Incredible to give us another option other than clockwork. This is my 2nd recovery I've made since switching to android from windows mobile about two weeks ago. Lg ally was the other Link here . This one I built with an ext-4 kernel I compiled so you can partition apps2sd with ext4 in recovery but remember your rom's kernel must support ext-4 too.

Link to Amon_RA's nexus one recovery thread as it has a good description of what all the features are Link here

To use if you have s-off download the and unzip it to get the and copy that to the root of your sdcard. Boot phone holding down vol down and select yes to update.

To use with unrevoked recovery reflasher download the recovery-RA-v1.7.0.5.img and in recovery reflasher select file and custom recovery and navigate to where you downloaded the file.

Special Thanks:
Amon_RA for his source code Buy him a redbull
Team Unrevoked for the Recovery Reflasher and the S-off Link
Koush source code
worstenbrood source code for modded desire recovery

changelog v1.7.0.2 :
fixed data wiping and cache wiping as they are ext3 partitions not yaffs2
currently wiping cache can only be done with wipe cache not wipe data/factory reset
Thanks koush for the help
fixed flashing update.zips

changelog V1.7.0.3:
fixed small error in sd partitioning script

changelog V1.7.0.4 see attached pics
Added usb mount of phone's internal storage
Added toggle of signature verification on update.zips
Added gui mount umount menu

changelog V1.7.0.5
Changed script to correctly backup and restore /data/data and backup and restore .android_secure on /emmc if selected.

Changelog V1.7.0.6
Fixed typo that caused nandroid to always restore most current backup.

Changes v1.8.1
Supports both Amoled and SLCD
Now supports Flashing from Emmc or Sdcard!!!
Has zip directory browsing from clockwork so zips are no longer needed in root of sdcard (thanks Koush & Amon-Ra)
Wipe Menu no longer uses scripts
Fix error in script for sd-ext upgrading
Fixed The sd-ext issues??
Updated the PB31IMG to be compatible with 3.26.605.1 and prior
Also in rom manager too!!!

Changes 2.2.1
Updated UI
Fixed zip progress menu in flashing
Fixed .android_secure backup back to sdcard from /emmc (was changed in the 11/10 htc update)
Expanded the UI for fuller listing of sdcard zips & dirs. (Thanks Amon_RA)
Still recommend making a folder called Custom_Roms on sd and placing's there
Selectable nandroid partitons gui for backup (Thanks Amon_Ra)
Now backs up sd-ext partiton as a whole if that option is selected in nandroid.
Downloadable from rom manager!!!
Fully working with gingerbread/cm7 and wipes all partitons correctly.
Added menu option to format /data partiton to ext4 and is able to reformat back to ext3 too. (See notes below)

Above option for ext4 requires a kernel with ext4 support and changing the mount line in in boot.img/ramdisk from ext3 to ext4. This will enable mounting of the ext4 /data as ext4 instead of having the ext4 partition mounted as ext3. This formatting will persist through rom flashing and /data wiping but can be reverted via ext3 reformat option. Warning a non ext4 enabled kernel will not be able to mount an ext4 /data partition. If a ext3 data nandroid is restored to an ext4 formatted data partiton all the old files will work as ext3 and anything newly added will be in ext4 (best to start /data fresh to get full benefit of ext4 fs).

Example for changing line in boot.img for cm7 (similar for stock rom on froyo too)

mount ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk0p1 /data wait nosuid noatime nodiratime
change to
mount ext4 /dev/block/mmcblk0p1 /data wait nosuid noatime nodiratime
Then repack boot.img and reflash.

Change log 3.02:
Nandroid now has the option to backup & restore .android_secure on /sdcard or /emmc (stock GB has .android_secure on /emmc)
Added busybox symlinks for mount & umount (now sense 3.0 roms that use busybox to mount in updater script work)
Added script to (re)format /emmc as ext3, ext4 or fat32 (run "partemmc help" from adb shell for use)
Added options in wipe menu to wipe /sdcard & /emmc
Wiping all or wipe .android_secure wipes it on both /sdcard and /emmc
Changed ui back to cyan colors.
Updated /data as ext4 to wipe /datadata also.
Nandroid now suppressed backup of /datadata also when selecting to not backup /data partition
File system type for /cache, /data, /sd-ext and /emmc are auto detected so you can use alternate filesystems (rom kernel & boot.img permitting)
As always properly wipes and you can use update-script or updater-script (amend or edify)
Added flash_eraseall binary this can be used to fix a corrupted nand mtd(not emmc) by erasing it then you can reflash it. Use is "adb shell flash_eraseall /dev/mtd/mtdX" where X is the number of the mtd you wish to erase.

Changelog: 3.06
Added ability to restore CWM backups.
Compiled for armv7a-neon so its faster.
Rewrote the ext3|4 menu to use C not scripts
Added a developer menu:

Developer menu:
Make and flash boot from zimage : This makes a mkboot folder on sdcard and mounts sdcard as mass storage then you copy a zImage and kernel modules into this folder and it will create a new boot like anykernel and flash it.
Toggle full ext wipe : This toggles between doing a quick wipe (default) of ext partitions or a full wipe which reformats them.
Install su & superuser: Installs or fixes su & superuser install (removes old if exists)
Install eng (unguarded) su: Installs engineering su that doesn't use superuser (removes old su & superuser if exists)
Reboot to bootloader: reboots to bootloader/hboot
Reboot recovery : reboots phone back into recovery

what's the difference between this and clockwork? i'm not trying to instigate anything. clockwork is the only recovery that i've used but from reading that linked thread it looks like maybe it has a few more features? i'm not sure. the UI between the two seem somewhat similar too.
