PhilZ Touch is a CWM Advanced Edition that adds all the features you could ever miss in CWM
It is a well proven recovery for many phones

It also adds a full touch interface a completely configurable GUI


Since many requests to port it to N8000, here it is finally released

Please give your feedback, what works, and any bug you could encounter
Read the features, and check if you are missing something

I would appreciate a screen shot from your device, mainly under GUI options or custom backup menu where you select partitions
To take a screen shot, just slide left

Also, do not forget to read about the powerful aroma file manager integration and double tap shortcut

I had a hang up on the Note 10.1 splash screen trying to enter recovery after flashing the zip file but no problems after flashing the tar file with mobile odin.
I`m going out soon so haven`t been able to test it much.
Initally it isn`t working very well.The touch screen interface is very erratic.Pretty much unusable so have to use the power up/down button to navigate.
Once i get home i`ll try changing some of theGUI settings to see if that helps.
Thanks for porting the recovery over here and i`m sure the glitches will be sorted out soon.

I see in Post #1 the .zip file is for the P5100 (Galaxy Tab 10.1). Any ideas where I can find the .zip version for the Galaxy Note 10.1 (N8000)? Thanks

Well spotted mate.I had my sleepy eyes on this morning and flashed it with predictable results:D
The tar file flashes fine with mobile odin.Why don`t you try it?

Sorry, fixed the zip version, now it is the one for N8000

About touch behavior:

1- when you touch a menu to select: is the selection precise and working as expected
2- bottom virtual buttons: do they work as expected?
3- If it is slow, try to reduce the Scroll Sensitivity setting and reduce menu height. Play with both to find a sweet point¨


Try to describe what happens with precision. A video would even be better, so that I can get what you mean. I won't be able to help much as I do not have the device, without these

1-no. For example i touch Backup and restore and the highlight changes to Install zip from SDcard. Go back picks another option or is unresponsive.

2-Totally unresponsive. (Edit:The back button works.)

3-Haven`t tried this as it is very difficult to navigate anywhere.

Maybe a N8000 user could post some findings as i`m on a N8010.

Thank you (out of my 8 daily :good:)
Ok, maybe it is a kernel issue in fact, as the kernel is stock N8100, but wired anyway
Post the recovery.img from N8010XXUCMA8 and I will look at it

i use n8000 and touch is also unresponsive.. when i touch the screen its always 'scroll down' .. when i touch bottom keys its always 'select'.. changed touch gui and also disabled it but still the same... so have to use volume rocker..

but so far all options i ticked works fine (backup., wipe., flash theme/mod).. :)

Ah, bad news
So, the kernel swap won't fix it

Can you try to hide bottom virtual buttons in GUI settings and let me know if it fixes anything?
Also, Stock CWM Touch does work for N8000?

Ok,
Here is another repack:
Deleted


If touch doesn't work, try also to hide bottom virtual buttons in the GUI Settings

This version is is same recovery but repacked with original cm-10.1 ramdisk and kernel for N8xxx devices
Maybe the touch code issues are related to differences between stock and cm-10.1 kernels!
The adverse effects are:
- no exfat support
- aroma file manager could not work

Take it as a debug version just to rule out kernel from the touch issue

Flashed the latest repack and it made no difference.:(

Just flashed on 8010 and echo what ttav said scrolling up and down results in it flying up and down menu.

Turned off the virtual buttons and no diff at all.

Re: [N8000][CWM Advanced Edition] PhilZ Touch

Figured it out. Probably key setup. It will be fixed. Meanwhile stick to version in post 1 and use hardware keys

Let's do it the hard way:
I changed the Key up / down mapping, but from the video I saw on P3100 thread and your description, not sure it would be enough. So, this a debug version only:
http://www.mediafire.com/file/l970z1wgn9ncpsv/philz_touch_4.90.8-n8000-debug-touch.zip

On each touch, it will print a lot of info about screen touch events
Please do exactly the following, do not touch screen other than below instructions, until you are done with log file


1- Boot into recovery, do not touch screen at all
2- Touch and lift finger on top left corner
3- Touch and lif on top right
4- Touch and lift on bottom left
5- Touch and lift on bottom right
6- Touch and lift on a menu
7- Touch and lift on a second menu

For steps 6 and 7, describe what happens

Now, using hardware keys vol up/down, navigate to Advanced / Error Reporting
Attach here the /sdcard/clockworkmod/recovery.log file you get


This will help me spot the issue

Step 6 i touched and lifted on mounts and storage.The menu highlight moved one step down from top of menu.
Step 7 selected advanced and the menu highlight moved one step down.

Things seems a bit more complicated
I thought it was the x / y flipped, but not
The log you provided shows 4000x4000 board HxW coordinates :eek:

I need more debugging, sorry
Here's a new debug version. It will write into log many useful info regarding all the gui events

http://www.mediafire.com/file/0mnlne32jnof1v3/philz_touch_4.90.9-n8000-debug-touch.zip

Please proceed again exactly as below:
Each time, only touch screen and immediately lift finger, do not keep it on screen

1- Boot into recovery, do not touch screen at all
2- Touch and lift finger on top left corner (outside any menu)
3- Touch and lif on top right (outside any menu)
4- Touch and lift on bottom left (outside any menu)
5- Touch and lift on bottom right (outside any menu)
6- Touch and lift on "Install Zip menu"
7- Touch and lift on "PhilZ Settings" menu

Now, do not touch the screen any more
Use hardware buttons:
- Go to Advanced / Error Report
- upload here the /sdcard/clockworkmod/recovery.log file you get

If you continue debugging, I'll be able to fix it :)
Many thanks

Sorry for the delay.
