Hi, folks

ClockworkMod Recovery (<- source).
"Changelog of ClockworkMod Recovery"

changes are here for some of the work we have done for support in RM
changes for the yes/no patch, and anything provided in this thread are here
If you cannot wait for new builds, then Arifs nightly builds are available here.

  • Based on sources
  • Re-coded recovery and leo gits in few places to have the same CWR working for both MAGLDR and cLK
  • Fixed cLK with versioning in cLK to add clk= to /proc/cmdline
  • Now require cLK, rather than the 1.4 from cedesmith
  • Compiled using official Offmode-Charging Fix by Koush
  • Edited confirmation menu to show one "no" only
  • Re-arranged YES / NO: YES now is on first place
  • ReiserFS and NILFS Support
  • Offmode-Charging with cLK ONLY
  • SD-EXT backup / restore (no matter if Reiser, NILFS, ext 2/3/4)

You can flash this image easily from within Android; simply copy the file onto your sdcard and run following commands:

$ su
# flash_image recovery /sdcard/name_of_recovery_file.img
Maybe the flash_image command is not available on your build; you can find it attached. Copy it into /system/bin folder and run following in terminal emulator:

$ su
# chmod 777 /system/bin/flash_image

For cLK:

  • You need android sdk installed and path variable set in windoze to "*androidsdk*/platform-tools" and "*androidsdk*/tools" (alternatively you can copy the .img into the tools folder of android sdk and operate from there)
  • Flash appropiate cLK layout from second post
  • Download the file attached
  • Boot your phone into fastboot mode (hold back key (left arrow) whilst powering on)
  • Open a command line by pressing "windoze key+r" and typing "cmd", followed by enter
  • Navigate to folder, which contains the recovery image
  • Type "fastboot erase recovery" (<- not really necessary; just to make sure), followed by enter
  • Type "fastboot flash recovery name_of_recovery_file.img", followed by enter
  • Type "fastboot reboot" for rebooting your phone
  • Access recovery as described in cedesmiths thread (hold home key whilst powering on)
  • You're done


For MAGLDR 1.13, booting from NAND:

  • Download the file attached
  • Download a partition layout incl. recovery from this thread which fits your ROM you want to use best and unzip it into "C:\recovery" for example
  • Copy over the recovery image file from inside the zip archive into this folder "C:\recovery", delete existing "recovery-raw.img" and rename copied image file to "recovery-raw.img"
  • Flash the recovery and partition layout using "DAF.exe" as usual and described in the thread of raiderx or the ROM provider
  • Boot Recovery with menu point "8. AD Recovery"
  • You're done
Note: For future updates of CWR it's best to set up a fixed boot partition size of 5M and not use the filesize flag in flash.cfg.[/list]


For MAGLDR up to 1.13, booting from SDCard (SD-files version):

  • Download the file attached
  • Extract the files to the root directory of your sdcard
  • Start recovery within MAGLDR with menu point "AD SD"
  • Recovery should start
  • You're done


For both via CWR:

  • Download the * file onto sdcard
  • Go into recovery by either holding home key in cLK or using the 8. AD to recovery in MAGLDR
  • Note: recovery-partition size of minimum 5MB needed
  • Select Install zip from sdcard
  • Select Choose zip from sdcard
  • Navigate/Select the recovery from the sdcard
  • Select yes to install the recovery
  • reboot into recovery, and hooray, you are in the new recovery

March 25, 2011
  • Updated to sources

March 17, 2011
  • Updated to sources
  • cLK was updated to latest patches from cedesmith incl. complete offmode charging support (LED color changing, button press behaviour etc)

March 15, 2011
  • Backup'n Restore does what it is intended to
  • cLK is running well and was updated to latest patches from cedesmith
  • MAGLDR is running well if restored backups are from same version

March 14, 2011
  • Second run, needs testing by MAGLDR users regarding full restore (mainly: Boot partition!)
  • cLK is running well

March 10, 2011
  • Initial release,, English only
  • Bug with MAGLDR; removed

- Backups from a previous version can't be restored with this one. However, backups from this version are fully working.
- Offmode charging is only possible with cLK; MAGLDR up to 1.13 isn't capable about that at this time, maybe in future releases.
- MAGLDR Versions are untested by me, here i'll need your feedback, especially regarding restorings from earlier versions (e.g backup restored in = working or not).

CWM "ChangeLog", but w/o Version No.

Awesome. Only thing we really need now is a change log between different CWM versions as they come out.

PS>> Gave you an extra post in case you need it later.
