ClockworkMod Recovery - Modified for Asus Transformer
OK, so this recovery will skip /data/media (Internal storage) when performing nandroid backups and also when you perform a factory reset.
This means that we can now perform nandroid backups without backing up our internal media and removing it everytime you want to do a backup.
Thanks to Bigrushdog and MadIndustries for helping out with the concept of the solution for skipping /data/media.
Also thanks to Koush and all the other developers that have contributed to clockworkmod, without you guys the android world would be completely different.
Thanks also to everyone in #xoom & #transformer that tested this.
The source code for all changes etc are available through the github repository. The two other projects that have been modified to make this recovery possible can also be viewed through my github account.
Even though this recovery has been tested, I am not liable for any loss of data or any damages done by this recovery.
When I refer to /data/media, this is the same as /sdcard when the transformer is booted into honeycomb. So any data that is stored in here should be untouched by this recovery.
Nandroid backups and restores don't touch the boot or recovery partitions.
If you encounter a problem with the filesystem on /data like it has become corrupt, place a blank file called "eraseData" (without the quotes) in the clockworkmod folder on your external sdcard. This will revert to the old way of formatting /data. NOTE: by doing this you will lose everything that you have in /data/media.
Versioning of recovery images:
At the moment I don't have a version number as such, instead each recovery image is timestamped in the format of DDMMYY-HHYY. So the file recovery-solarnz-120511-2030.img was produced on 12 May 2011 at 8:30 PM. This versioning is also shown in recovery when it starts.
Recovery Zip (solarnz-R3-240511-1908) FLASHED THROUGH CWM
Method 1 Flashing through CWM
Download the recovery zip file
Place the recovery zip on the sdcard where clockworkmod can read it.
Reboot into recovery using "adb reboot recovery" or any other method
In recovery, select flash zip from sdcard and select the recovery zip you downloaded
Once it has flashed the zip file, be sure to reboot your transformer so it complete the flashing process.
Also, you can grab Rom Manager or QuickBoot from the market for easy access to recovery.
