I present to you, this universal CF-Root which should work on all the Gingerbread based ROMs.

Features:
- All the previous features of my earlier versions:)
- CWM Recovery version 5.0.2.8
- Stock recovery is also preserved
- Support for phones using the SD-Card swap mod [ I use that

];

- Updated Superuser to v3.0.6
- Root / Unroot from CWM recovery
- More options added to CWM recovery (backup to internal sd supported, for the guys who got 16GB internal memory :) );
- Busybox can be installed now over the minimal BB already provided.
- Fixed backup of ".android_secure" instead of whole of internal sd card.
- use "bootanimation.zip" instead of "sanim.zip"
- More features which I don't recollect as of now ;). Find and let me know. :)

If you have just reinstalled the new PDA over the old version (that means if your ROM version is still the same e.g. XXKPQ), then the settings are not regenerated. You need to perform the following steps, in order for the new settings to be in effect:
Code:
adb shell
# sysrw ; rm -rf /system/cfroot/ ; sysro
# reboot
Changelog: (moved to 2nd post)

It is intentional in this recovery to NOT backup the whole internal sdcard. Wipes should not be touching the sdcards (internal & external). Only the ".android_secure" [The apps you install/move to SD card], should be backup up and restore should work fine. Please report in case you observe any issues.

Attached you will find the CWM ... just flash with ODIN selecting in the PDA source the CWM file. Also you can find the version to flash from CWM Manager app.

Restart the phone (if things are not working as desired after first reboot)!!!


Also, since the Superuser version is updated, do the following steps:
- Goto [Settings -> Applications -> Manage Applications -> All -> Superuser] and "Clear Data".
***
*** This is because the earlier versions permissions conflict with the newer version.

P.S.: Please contact me via PM if you find anything inappropriate here

Just press "Thanks" if you like my work...!!!

The custom boot logo works like this:
1) After flashing the extra version, logo.jpg is not available initially. Hence you see garbled screen.
2) However, this version enables the ability to copy your custom boot logo.jpg to "/mnt/.lfs/" folder. (you can use Root Explorer to do this by mounting it R/W first)
3) After placing your custom logo.jpg, reboot and then you should see your own boot logo.

Attaching the original logo.jpg, if you want to use the stock one.

    No Amit. It is not about ext4 conversion.
    It is just about restoring the backup. I was using the Universal CF-root that comes with UC Kernel. The restore keeps on giving me md5 check error. The check for some reason is failing.
    I think DoomLoRD might need to update his ramdisk with mine latest version. I have made lots of fixes and improvement over the version which he is using. I would suggest that you try the latest version from this thread (based on stock rom) and if things work fine, suggest DoomLoRD update ramdisk in his kernel.

    yes its awesome amit upgrade CWM to v5.0. something

    But i have bad experience i backup rom flash ext4 then retore and get some error regarding : fail to format: rfs_.......

    then i retry and get message md5 checksum fail :(

    Somehow wrong version got uploaded (re-download from OP again). My bad. The issues should have been fixed now. :)

    I think he may need to patch the ext4 module to XXKPQ kernel version.
    Nice thought :) BTW, this is universal CF-root and should work with any ROM irrespective of kernel version ;)
