Info:
Kernel compiled from sources update3
No sensors flashing: fast boot in recovery
Root allowed
Selinux enforced mode preserved
Built in NTFS/Exfat kernel module support for fast backups

Recovery: based on cm-11.0 kitkat branch

More info:
At worst, it would bootloop and you have to know how to get out of a bootloop, that's it
But you're still warned: Read Post 1

First, someone has to flash it so that we debug it
The risks are a boot hand so you need odin to flash another recovery
Either selinux missing permissions I will add later or needed graphics.c

Waiting for feedback

cool to see you here, mate ;)

EDIT: ok, I flashed it

- CWM zip to flash Recovery does not work (at least for me...)
- ODIN flashable works
- CWM Touch Recovery works, no issues so far ;)

Thx. :)

Are you kidding?
It works?
LoL
Never thought on first release. This has no device tree. I built near from scratch, based on twrp broken device tree for cwm

Big thanks. I am removing noob warnings in op so that we start debugging where needed

I have to thank you...I don't like TWRP, so I used CWM so far...but as I use Sammy Flip Cover, it is really hard to handle volume buttons....now I don't need them any more :D

EDIT: Thx for mentioning me in OP...but please correct my nick ;)...its a funny kind of my initials (A.B.) and the number behind is quite clear I guess :(

Nice to see this ramping-up :good:

Obvious warning that should be added to the top post - like every single custom (non-Samsung) recovery so far, this is also tripping the Knox flag.

Fixed with your correct nick

- is backup to exfat extrnal sd ok?
- mount usb storage and OTG USB?
- format usb otg in exfst/ntfs/ext4/ext2?
- boot into recovery is fast?
- time/date?

If all ok I will clean it and release other variants

- will test backup...right now not enough free space on external sd
- usb storage mounting does not work
- won't test format ;)
- boot in recovery is fast enough - same as before on regular CWM
- time/date not showing up correctly...for me it is 10.05 am now and it shows up 20.12 pm though I set the correct timezone

Backup to extsdcard (fat) OK : Time 20min
Backup usb otg OK : Time 10 min
don't try format
boot in recovery speed time seem to be the same as normal cwm
time/date : in cwm I had 23h29 instead of 14h32 (I'm in france), in backup name the date is false (01_01_1970)

aromafm feature not working.

i have /aromafm/aromafm.zip in the clockworkmod folder on internal storage and sdcard...

Philz touch can´t found this folder...
"now clockworkmod/aromafm/aromafm.zip in storage paths"


i started aromafm.zip via install zip -> Choose zip from /sdcard -> clockworkmod -> aromafm -> aromafm.zip and this work it...

go in the sdcard folder ... -> empty! no data found on internal storage...

external storage is this problem too.

regards

I can't check, I'm on mac. Try with virtual machine without success but it's not a good test.

Find an old flashdrive to try some format :

vfat : OK
extfat : OK on windows (VM), not on mac (ask to initialise the disc)
ntfs : OK

Don't have the driver to test the other.
