So BIG THANKS to SEBASTIAAN15 and KOUSH for his hard work with CWMR !!! :)
Many credits to the Desire S community ( especially to loveboatcaptain - LBC Mod Android Development and Marylandcookie ) for testing, very nice ideas, feature suggestions and helping to get the code running on the Desire S!
Special big thanks to RAVENNA from android-hilfe.de board for hours of testing for the Desire!
BIG Thanks to Hussainmushahid who helped me a lot spending much of time with solving a bug I could not reproduce on my device.

v2.2.6 RC4 Released: Oct/01



  • Rare Superuser problem when tar backups were enabled (disabled by default) was fixed.
  • Converting partitions between ext3 and ext4 without data loss now correctly calculates the space needed to successfully complete the operation
  • New option: check and optionally repair the file system on your sdcard (fat32)
  • Removed duplicate format cache option inside the format menu (wipe cache does the same)
  • When formatting fat32 it will now save your 4ext.prop settings and restore them afterwards
  • Changed partitioning of the sdcard to not use LBA mode for new fat32 partitions as requested by Ghiki
  • Added new size option (128mb) to the partitioning menu per request
  • Parted is no longer used to format fat32 in the partition menu
    -> This solves a bug where sometimes the creation of the fat32 file system failed and produces better quality results​
  • 4EXT Recovery themes should now stay when formatting /system or flashing new roms
  • New option: format /sdcard fat32
  • New 4EXT Recovery Control API because I'm forced to drop "extendedcommand" (see App for the reason why)
    enables file names and directories to include spaces for installations​

    calculates needed space to complete a full or advanced backup at the beginning of the backup.​

    This ensures that you are not left with a non working backup.​
  • Size for recovery greatly reduced



New 4EXT Recovery Control Features


  • Please see www.4ext.net for more.
  • Fix permissions
  • Calculate real values for the space needed to create a new full or advanced backup

    Advanced Backups: While you are selecting / deselecting partitions, it will display and update the currently needed space to complete that custom backup set.
  • As an example, the following would be possible to do in just one session:
    Restore a backup, set to create a backup / advanced backup before the restore,
    format all partitions with a file system of your choice before the restore process starts,
    flash additional zip files afterwards, fix permissions and select to stay inside recovery or to reboot automatically once all actions are complete.​



Features: Use 4EXT Recovery Control or Recovery Updater for complete Changelogs and Known issues!

not all features may be relevant for all devices

    -> so that after a restore, all partitions and up with the file system you wanted!​
  • Advanced Backup: backup only a single partition
  • Convert any of your partitions to EXT4 or EXT3 without data loss.

Formatting:
  • When you wipe or format it will always use the same file system you currently have.

    You can you this app to fix the md5sums of a given backup to "forcefully" restore it!​
  • Calculate real values for the space needed to create a new full or advanced backup

    Advanced Backups: While you are selecting / deselecting partitions, it will display and update the currently needed space to complete that custom backup set.​

Tried using this and at first it detected my ext3 partition and everything seemed fine. I made a backup and chose to convert sd-ext to ext4 on that backup at next restore.

Made a full wipe and restore from the latest backup. After reboot this recovery now detected my sd-ext as a 512MB swap and refused to restore ext-data to it.

I had to go back to CWM 3.1.0.1 and do a full wipe -> restore to get my system up and running again.

Did I do something wrong, or did I not understand how the recovery is supposed to work?

it didn't quite work for me, I'm using RCmix S V2 3.1 test
tried flashing it through ROM Manager Premium v4.3.2.4 (2.5.0.7)

-- Installing: SDCARD:/4EXTRecovery_v1.9_RC1_bravo.zip
Finding update package...
Opening update package...
Installing update...
4EXTRecovery v1..0 RC1
Installing..

assert failed: write_raw_image("/tmp/recovery.img"_
"recovery")
E: Error in /sdcard/4EXTRecovery_v1.9.0_RC1_bravo.zip
(Status 7)
Install aborted.

it's probably something that I'm doing wrong rather than the program itself though....

thanks, but when I try that i get "error writing recovery: no space left on device"
I´m S-ON. Do you have to be S-OFF for this?

Yes, most probably..
To you who are S-ON what do you use? Fake flash?
Sorry I don't know much about the desire.

Regarding the Bug identifying sd-ext as swap: can it be that the partition types are mixed up with some of you? I mean swap not being the LAST one?

I always thought with all those a2sd techinques, you would partition swap at last, i.e: fat32,ext,ext,swap, or fat32,ext,swap, or fat32,swap

If it's possible that you have fat32,swap,ext,ext or something like that, the recovery won't work right!

I don't have swap. I only have one ext partition at 512MB.

The partitions that were detected on my device were initially:
Data - ext4
Cache - ext4
sdcard - fat32
sd-ext - ext3

Then after I tried to convert sd-ext to ext4 using a restore method (supported by the recovery?) my partitions were detected as:
Data - ext4
Cache - ext4
sdcard - fat32
swap - swap

I have no idea what this means.. and I can't really help you with bugtracking coz I need my phone up and running during daytime :p

This is strange indeed. This feature works without problems since many weeks.
Could you please tell me how your partition table looked like and what file system you had on your sd-ext partition that you migrated to ext4?

It detected data cache as ext4?!?

That's a major bug then. I'm very sorry.. extremely strange that sebastiaan and me didn't find that one.
Will look into that..

Please anyone who discovers any bug, please use the menu item in advanced to copy recovery.log to sd-card and send me the log.

Thanks in advance :)

I 'll take this recovery offline if it's like you say!

    Hi everyone,

    I'm currently working on the next "bigger" release where I hope to include most/all the requests you've made, dropping parted completely, changing detection of volumes, improved startup time et.c. and some more features and theming options.

    For the meanwhile, here is a very small update, because some of you are in need of more different sizes for partitioning.
    There is also a new option in the 4EXT menu where you can reload your themes.
    This might be most useful for themers who don't need to reboot recovery all the time now just to see any changes they have made.

    You would need to remove the last line of the updater-scripts of the flashable themes, because this line reboots recovery automatically.

    Anyone who doesn't need that, really doesn't need to upgrade..

    Update: due to a missing "," :D there was a very strange size to chose from in the partition menu. Sorry, here is the fixed update:


    Desire GSM different versions, pick one of them:

    4EXTRecovery_v2.1.1b_bravo.zip, md5sum: 4c2c70f97286186b7296a510172fe93f
    extract and use AndroidFlasher or fastboot to flash recovery.img

    4EXTRecovery_v2.1.1_bravo_OneClick.zip, md5sum: e003d2b585e11c8b963e4b888bf21734
    extract, turn on usb debugging, start runme.cmd/runme.sh (windows user/linux user)

    PB99IMG_2.1.1_bravo.zip, md5sum: 2bb7e78ffdbf2c14be62218300f964bf
    rename to PB99IMG.zip and put it on your sdcard, start into bootloader and let it install

    Desire CDMA different versions, pick one of them:

    4EXTRecovery_v2.1.1_bravoc.zip, md5sum: 5561b36023aca4b90732f782a11fc845
    extract and use AndroidFlasher or fastboot to flash recovery.img

    4EXTRecovery_v2.1.1_bravoc_OneClick.zip, md5sum: df2f7293f6aa39adaa9d3dd9985ef9f2
    extract, turn on usb debugging, start runme.cmd/runme.sh (windows user/linux user)

    update.zip, md5sum: d631c869dd239326c13b145cdf62e554
    fake flash version for s-on users.

    Thank you all very much :)

    Hi Madmaxx82
    why you don't add option set password into recovery for entry recovery?

    Because of several reasons:

    1. it doesn't make sense
    2. it's difficult to implement (where to store the password so that it doesn't get lost on flash/wipe/ et.c.. dump recovery.img, unpack, insert, repack and flash?)
    3. it makes the use of recovery very inconvenient.
    4. what about auto reboot into recovery, backup/restore/install and reboot initiated by rom manager or 4ext recovery control.. always enter a password?


    Why it doesn't make sense:
    Flash another recovery and everything is ok again.
    Flash an RUU, extract backups from sdcard..

    et.c et.c.

    You would need an implementation at the bootloader level that also prevents fastboot from working before it wasn't unlocked by some pin/password.

    Only then a recovery with password option would start to make some sense.
