Not Working by me. Black Screen in recovery. See only the Button on the bottom but the rest is black.

Edit: Ok working. Wait 1 Minute and the Screen is coming but the touch not working correct. The Hardware button also not correct working.

Can you give more details
Touch is completely dead or it behaves bad. In that case, how does it act (a video would be helpful)

What issue with hardware buttons
And is the black screen delay on each start

Black Screen on each start yes. After 10 seconds i see the recovery. With the hardware buttons louder and quieter i can not select ever entry. Only every second i can select. With Touch nothing correct working. In Arome the bottom bottons not working. The Font are very small.

Sorry my English is not so good.

Same problems like Schrotty. After choosing something by touch, it seems the screen doesn't refresh. If I go up or down, the screen appears.
Also I tried to format /cache ... it says Done, but from that point I get the messages "Can't mount /cache/*" ... the problem all the recent recoverys had.
On the right top I see time ... it shows me 02:14 ... no wonder the recent recoveries couldn't have a correct time in backup for me. Strange why some users have correct time/date ....

Sir Phil, great to see you here!

One question : it is possible to include an autoroot option in your cwm, like it is in the Note recovery?
On S2 only flash your kernel, got cwm, got root, got everything together. Niw it us a little bit different. That's why i ask for the autoroot option.

On N7000 and I9100 the kernel and recovery were one .img.
Kernel contained recovery. Since S3 and up, recovery is a separate partition.

Code:
lrwxrwxrwx root     root              1970-01-09 01:56 aboot -> /dev/block/mmcblk0p6

In new cwm 6.0.3.2, Koush added a function to prompt you to root on recovery restart if you loose root
It will copy su binary to where it should
After that, just install Koush CWM Superuser from market and you are rooted

Can I use this method initially?
So flash your recovery on stock rom, boot into it, "enable root procedure", boot up und go to play an install superuser app?
That's all?

Hey Phil, nice to see you here. Always used your recovery on my note2.

I also get the black screen, I think it's because I use a different kernel. Faux123.

Maybe this helps a bit :)

You could simply flash a superuser CWM zip with any recovery and you`re rooted. ;)

I am downloading the whole ROM to check a bit more the stock boot.img
Also, I think it is better to move some exfat modules to the ramdisk to avoid mounting /system which always ends up in some issues
Also, need to look at some scripts that could be needed on start

When I am done, I will release another repack
Thabk you @Chenglu for the support, I appreciate it a lot

Note: this phone is a bit different from i9500, and since I do not own one to test, it could be we need some debugging until it is done

    - vibrate after backup/restore operations


    Notice:
    Stop asking for updates
    I was offered the i9505 by S4 owners. It is my development flagship device. If there are no updates, it means you do not need any
    Start by reading change-logs. When they are relevant, I always release for jflte to thank who offered me the device

    I will miss PhilZ recovery a lot!...
    Tried TWRP 2.7 and three versions of 2.8. My nandroids disappear after booting, browsing files and flash process is much more inconvenient...
    Well it's a pity :(

    For now you have a fully working PhilZ Touch

    To all donators: CWM is no more supported in a good way by CM team. They moved to CyanogenMod Simple Recovery. As the name suggests, it is really a simple recovery with basic and limited features.

    PhilZ Touch being based on CWM, this means I have to start a whole new project from near scratch if we want to continue with PhilZ Touch. I started doing it, it ended with very good version you have now that is compatible with latest CM files. However, continuing this to completely migrate it to c++ complying code is an endless hours job. My life imperatives don't allow it.

    S4 won't see Android L for the next many months probably, so, until then, it should be fine
