this is a port of Tenfar's Defy Recovery for FlipOut. as the hijacks do not work on this model, there is used a different solution to load recovery.

it does not support mount/unmount. but all other function for backup/restore of system & data works (tested).
you can share usb storage to pc, or install unsigned update.zip files.

Credits for the apk goes to Tenfar, modifications to work on flipout with hack to boot is made by me.

It should work on all 2.1 based releses, as long as the phone is rooted.

controls in recovery are: VOL- & VOL+ for up/down and POWER to select.

There is an addon option to run adb at bootup (root based), if you put a empty file named: "adb_bootup" on root of sdcard.

Enjoy! (now lets see some mods!)

Installation instructions:
  • 1. root it (SuperOneClick )
  • 2. Install FlipOutRecovery.apk
  • 3. reboot phone once
  • 4. now enter app and press "Install recovery"
  • 5. next you can chose to reboot recovery , normal reboot or shutdown.

Good job!

Is there a way to install it from bootloader mode?
This is the only available mode i have right now :(

Care to share your source? I have a port booting on the Motorola Charm, but it fails to reboot properly back to android. It only boots to stock recovery or clockwork mod recovery. Thanks. :)

I see two problems and it's killing me now...
a. Format SYSTEM doesn't work unless you connect the device and say 'adb remount'
b. after you format the SYSTEM, restoring a Nandroid image will surely tell you "MD5 mismatch", it seems that the nandroid script is trying to use a tool from the /system

Darn it's killing me........

entering at boot

is there any way to enter the recovery at boot, rather than from the app.
say as there is with the stock recovery (x and power then release power button)

so if that's not possible... then how would I effectively use the backup tool, I mean I would only need it if the phone wasn't working properly

backup purposes for now.. you would backup and be able to recover..
or if someone made a mod of a rom of course..

you do not need to format anything to install and restore backups, only those experimenting will fail in their mission to mess up i think...

okay thank you!
i tried it in this way:
app: install recovery system -> recovery boot
boot menue: restore/backup -> backup
after a time of waiting my phone restarts.
but i dont have a "nandroid" folder on my sd card..
only a "goapkrev/backup/..."
with files cache.img, data.img, nadroid.md5, system.img

did i anything wrong?

how do i get a sbf file normaly?

this is correct. i was wrong... the ClockWorkMod used here uses a different folder name, but the purpose is the same.

now you should be able to make a full restore of data filesystem, which is primary i think.. /system is more or less not changed for anyone since we all use sbf's installed, but data is important to backup.

    thanks for this work!
    i want to backup my flipout. do i get a sbf file and what do i have to choose in the recovery-app?
    thanks

    no, you get a full backup of filesystems on your mobile, into a Nandroid/openrecovery/[serialnumber/date] folder which you can restore again the same way..

    sbf is motorola only.

    no, and bootloader is locked, so the source is worth less, maybe kernel module addon's but nothing else..

    Use my recovery.
    It's working on flipout too
