Features

Touch
- click on an entry to select it
- double click on an entry do "execute" it
- the back key works as back
- dragging the menu will move it, if possible
- keys still work


Custom Colors
create a file named ".config" in the clockworkmod-folder on your internal sdcard (in android that would be /sdcard/clockworkmod/.config)
the syntax per line is:
Code:
TYPE=R,G,B,A

Valid types are:
Code:
MENU_TEXT_COLOR
NORMAL_TEXT_COLOR
HEADER_TEXT_COLOR

Example:
Code:
MENU_TEXT_COLOR=255,0,0,200
NORMAL_TEXT_COLOR=0,255,0,200
HEADER_TEXT_COLOR=0,0,255,200
That would display your header in blue, your menu in red and the log in green.

If you don't know how to use it, then you probably shouldn't, just saying :p

Nice 1st version. Little easier to swipe through long menus than using volume buttons. Tried it out for a few minutes and works just as described. Thanks.

Latest release: alpha 1

Changelog

alpha 1 (CWM)
- based on my cwm beta 4 big font
- added simple navigation using up and down touch motions (nothing big for now)

Bugs
- see my cwm thread for known bugs
- ics seems to not create /cache/recovery, so you might get some errors mentioning that on startup

Notes
- simple up and down swipes for now to navigate, use search button (bottom right) to "execute", and back button to go back
- other buttons still work
- if you swipe to much, you will see a message, that the back button was disabled, swipe a bit more in one direction to enable it again (otherwise the screen will simply toggle on/off)
- i will try to rewrite the whole navigation to utilize the touch screen a bit more :) (will take some time though)

How to install/update
- cwm update zip only...

Thanks to
everyone who donated some money, which made the note a bit more affordable

Just to be clear

Android is new to me, though I consider my self significantly technologically savvy. When the instructions say:

How to install/update
- cwm update zip only...

Does that mean I am to use the install update.zip method? or do I still flash as normal from the SD Card?

Appreciate all your hard work Braway!

yes,
so basically you need to have cwm already installed,
put the zip on your sd, and flash it through cwm

Working great for me. Swipe up or down instead of using volume keys to change selection and power to select. Thanks for your time and work braway. ;)

Same way you flash from your sd card on cwm.

Awesome work. I was wondering if you plan to make a big font version? It's helpful for guys who have a hard time reading the dinky font.

Thanks again & keep up the good work.

    Uploaded beta 1

    see post 1 for details

    big differences:
    - no more swiping
    - direct selection of items in the list
    - double click an item for execution
    - long(er) click does not select/execute
    - "dragging" of an entry will move the list (in file selection for example)
    - back key is the only way to go back now

    - keys still work (vol up/down, home/menu, search/power)

    Is there a flashable zip for the latest touch recovery?

    No, not yet. I was hoping someone was going to post one. I've trying to do it through terminal emulator but still no luck. I would try adb but my computer is out of commission

    Sent From My Hybrid AOKP Note


    There is no flashable .zip file for the latest version of cwm touch recovery, but you can make your own.

    1- Take the .zip from the 1st page of this thread.

    2- Then go to the ROM Manager website, scroll down to Samsung Galaxy Note, and download the cwm 5.8.4.3 touch recovery .img.
    http://www.clockworkmod.com/rommanager/

    3- Take the cwm 5.8.4.3 touch recovery .img and rename it to "recovery".

    4- Drag it into the .zip from the first page of this thread and replace the original recovery image in the .zip with the cwm 5.8.4.3 touch recovery that you renamed "recovery".

    5- Then flash the .zip with the new renamed recovery .img in cwm or twrp and you're done.

    Another thing you could do, is what I did.

    • Download cwm touch recovery from: http://www.clockworkmod.com/rommanager/
      (first column is normal cwm, second is touch)
    • Copy the recovery-clockwork-touch-5.8.4.3-quincyatt.img file to your sdcard.
    • adb shell as root.
    • Code:
      dd if=/sdcard/recovery-clockwork-touch-5.8.4.3-quincyatt.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p22
      (this is the same from recovery or from android)
    • Reboot to recovery
    • Enjoy!
