This is a custom recovery based on Cyanogen's recovery source with a lot of things added by me. The purpose of this recovery is to avoid using adb by accessing all features directly from the menu.

This recovery is for the HTC GSM Desire only, if you have a :
- HTC Dream/G1 you should go here.
- HTC Magic/MT3G you should go here.
- HTC Hero you should go here.
- HTC Sprint Hero you should go here.
- HTC Eris you should go here.
- HTC Tattoo you should go here.
- HTC N1 you should go here.

Important notes
  • Always check recovery.log before posting your issues!
    You can do this by doing :
    • "cat /tmp/recovery.log" OR "cat /cache/recovery/log" right after you had the issue.
    • Use the "move log to sd" option in the "others" menu right after you had the issue. This will move the log to /sdcard/recovery.log so you can easily open it with a text editor.

Features

Use the trackball (up+down) to navigate through the menu, press the trackball to select items. Use the Back-key to go back to a previous menu.

...Thanks a lot for this!
+100...awesome work. also thought we were stuck on 1.7.0.5 which was working just perfectly by the way...just the flash unsigned files was the big missing function for me. :D

You may want to add to OP that its also possible to flash this using a certain small but greatly effective tool called Android Flasher!

    I have my /data/data binded to sd-ext/data use firerat.
    Almost lost it all because i thought nandroid backed up the entire sd-ext.

    Same problem here, pretty much. The workaround for me right now is just not to flash any ROMs that would require a Data+Cache wipe... :(

    Try this version : nandroid should backup everything on sd-ext. I didn't test it yet so check the sd-ext backup tar once you made a nandroid backup.

    any chance for creating more than 2 parition using this recovery?
    Example
    - Partition 1 = fat32
    - Partition 2 = ext4
    - Partition 3 = ext4..

    Since we have data2ext that need 3 partition now.. :D

    Use adb and parted : http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=534714

    RA v2.0.1
