Discontinued
TWRP Version: 2.4.3
CWM Version : 5.5.0.4
E Kernel Version: Build 3 - U2


Presenting the first Dual Recovery Kernel for Arc/S and Pro. Your warranty is now void bla bla bla. I'm working on bringing TWRP to ICS based kernels (not cm9) and have been successful, worked on this alone for hours. Thankyou to @Rachit Rawat for allowing me to use some ramdisk files from his sources and Teamwin for creating TWRP. Ill write the rest of the thread later on. Both of the kernels are attached. And for those wondering, yes its been reported to be fast, pretty responsive with great battery life.
To use TWRP hit the volume down button when the led lights up pink. And to enter CWM hut the volume down key at the next led light up and vibration.
Note: TWRP and CWM are not the same when backing up or restoring, you will not be able to restore ones backup from another.

What works:
Twrp
Cwm
Flashing
Backup
Restore
Mount device partitions
Mount external partition
Boot

Old stuff. not required.

Since I've got the 2nd post, let me point out the things which are working / not working in TWRP:

Working:
  • Flashing zips
  • File Manager
  • Backup (Haven't tried Restore)
  • Terminal Command (Little buggy keyboard)

Not Working:
  • ADB Sideload via TWRP
  • ADB and Mount USB Storage
  • (Bug) Aroma Installer works only half screen

A note on backup:
  • If you got any issue while making a nandroid backup, download the attachment, extract the file and move it to /sdcard/TWRP
  • If the check-box of .android_secure does not get displayed in Backup menu, go back and enter Mount Menu, unmount SD Card and mount it again. Go to Backup menu again and select Refresh Sizes. .android_secure will be visible now.

Boot successful! :good:

Testing other things now.

BTW, the /vendor partition is not /system/vendor. Need to modify init.semc.rc or else people will have issues with sound enhancements.

Vermagic string is indicating Serene-ICS! :p

EDIT: Damn, this thing has dual recovery! :cyclops:

Is this dual boot ? After I install modules(1).zip, after i touch 'reboot system', I end up in cwm again.
But after i reboot system (from that cwm menu), its back to TWRP again when i press vol down.

Anyway.. the wifi works, so far no facing problems. no bootloop etc.
In the info, it's still serene kernel.

* Kinda not used with this touch screen menu in twrp :D.

Nice work mate.

Yeah itll say that. I needed the .13 kernel as I wanted to base it on that, was away from my pc so I asked Rachit Rawat if I could use some files from his source and kernel. Its not supoosed to go into dual boot, may have added them by mistake to the new update. (Too early)

When the notification light glows pink, Vol down enters TWRP, else when blue light+vibration, CWM Recovery.

    Gonna build .13 from source when I get my laptop back, with some more patches for Ram and fixes for ADB issues with TWRP (Which will be updated to 2.4).
    To find out more about the new features in 2.4, have a look here.

    Re: [ICS][.13] E Kernel w/ Dual Recovery [Pro/Arc]

    May you bring TWRP to stock kernel so that we can see it soon to xperia neo also . Excellent work.:good:

    I have done this but problem with TWRP is that most zips use old binary and updater-script. Unless ROM cookers/devs include it in their new releases there is no point on having it. Yes they can change them themselves but its hastle most users like to avoid. Besides some updater scripts maybe harder to change like ones with AROMA and other things especially for the newbies. Maybe a CWM version plus a TWRP version??




    Why not do that right now? :p im free. tell me this, do the Neo kernels work on Neo V?

    Yes build for both using haida config amd it will be fine.

    Sent from my GT-I9300 On Official JB

    What governor/scheduler Min/Max would be the best for your Kernel? Any suggestions?
    Governer = Smoothass
    IO = Noop
    Clock speed = 245mhz min / 1.2ghz
    These are what I used back when i had my pro, worked great.

    this is based on @Rachit Rawat kernel ???
    not based on, just some ramdisk files acquired. for (.13) base.

    [noob] what is TWRP ? :)
    its a recovery like cwm. you can read more here: http://www.teamw.in/project/twrp2
