Questions:

- What is the difference between normal recovery and these recoveries?
If you install a normal CWM/TWRP/Philz release on an unlocked P769, you will notice that the screen is inverted/mirrored and/or the the touch is also wonky. The above uploaded recoveries have been especially adapted to work correctly, so there is no-more mirror issue and the touch works fine as well. After flashing the below fix too, the touch should work while on your ROM as well.

Please note, you may have to also flash this fix (cwm_ts_fix_p769) for the wonky touchscreen after flashing the recovery. Get it here

- How to install recovery?
Option 1:
a. Go to recovery and flash the zip
Option 2:
a. Extract the recovery.img file from the zip and copy to your internal/external SD card on phone
b. Install Rashr from here
c. Flash the recovery from within the application by browsing for it
Option 3:
a. Extract the recovery.img file from the zip and copy to your computer
b. Use fastboot to install recovery, see here
c. Use the command "fastboot flash recovery recovery.img"
Option 4:
a. Via flash_image, use this guide.

- Are these recoveries bug-free?
I have tested all the recoveries on my device (T-Mobile P769) and it does boot into them and you can flash zip files, I can't comment on functionality more than that, however if there is an issue with these recoveries then it is most likely an issue with the original recovery as well.

- How are these recoveries created?
These recoveries are created simply by using kuma82's method, described here, which is replacing the kernel (zimage) from the original recoveries and replacing with the kernal from bobZhome's CWM recovery .

- Will you keep updating the recoveries?
I will try my best, I do not compile the recoveries from the original sources, because I don't have the time or know how to, however if there is a new recovery release and required by the users, I will gladly mod it and upload it.




Thanks to:
