Hey guys do we need to install busybox over any custom kernel??? I am using bck kernel. Whats the use of busybox.

BCK Kernel comes already with Busybox preinstalled.. no need to install busybox. :)
Note that you are using the CF-Root version. :)

Basically, Busybox is a collection of simple, but powerful Linux utilities and commands that Android doesn't come with by default. It is used by apps like Titanium Backup in order to do some special operations. It is also known as the "The Swiss Army Knife of Embedded Linux"...:D

I am on stock DDKP2, and have rooted using the universal cf root. Firstly, out was just a sweep to do that, thanks to the developers. And even the options in the cwm are great.

I have few questions:
1. If I use the ext4 app, will I need to back up individual partitions via the nandroid back up before using, our any other issues that will pop up.
2. How does the cwm manager app differ from the recovery cwm ?
3. If I flash another ics rom, will the root options be sustained, or I will have to root again with some other tool?

Just do a backup before doing anything that has the potential of soft bricking ur phone. It applies to almost all developers works. Better be safe than sorry.

CWM manager is just to make life simpler.

Custom ROMS all come with Root or SU. Stock ROMS however do not.

Thanks.

I did a nandroid backup, rebooted, and tried using the ext4 conversion utility.

It rebooted into recovery and tried converting every partition of the flash from rfs to ext4. Out of the four \system partition was not converted. Its says a warning while restoring the partition that too little memory is left, so it performs a roll back process.

Rest data, dbdata and cache were converted, but seems like their usage has increased, like in stock task manager personal data used around 11mb out of 72 mb space. Now its consuming 29mb. Similarly with other partitions, a bit usage has increased. Is it normal ?

Thats nothing to worry about. just go to the app again and see if the convert to ext4 option is still white or is it dark. if it is still light then ext4 conversion was not successful.

Yeah, both the options 'convert to ext4' and 'convert to rfs' are light. Both options are still available. And even it shows that \system is still in rfs, and \data, \dbdata and \cache are converted into ext4.

Should I try to convert again?

    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
    smile.gif
    ];

    - 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 ;)
