Im working on porting gweedo767's touch recovery to the incredible. I do not own an incredible so i need people to give me feedback so i know what to change. Once i get a good working fakeflash i will release an installable recovery image. If anyone wants to donate to me for me to get my own incredible that would be much appreciated :D and will make the process quicker.
Here is a youtube video I made of how it works: ------> VIDEO

4 ways to use recovery:
  1. volume rockers
  2. soft keys on bottom of screen
  3. capacitive buttons
  4. swipe gestures (up/down = scroll && left = back && right = select)

This will not install ANYTHING on your phone. It is just a test drive to see what it is like. This loads the files into the ram and runs them from there. As soon as you reboot everything will be back to the way it was. This does not change/alter ANY files on your phone.

I need to know what sort of things i need to change like:
  • swipe sensitivity
  • font size
  • order of soft keys on bottom of screen
  • anything else......
Please let me know how i can make this better

Here is the link to a FAKEFLASH: --------> http://sk8erwitskil.com/guest/skyrocket/CWMRT/inc/cwmrt-inc.zip (flash in CWM)

There is a known bug in ClockworkMod 5.5.0.4 that long file names can POSSIBLY cause backups to hang. There is a solution/workaround:
  • boot into recovery
  • try to make a backup (no matter if it passes or fails proceed to next step)
  • either through terminal emulator or through adb run the following command EXACTLY:
    Code:
    touch /sdcard/clockworkmod/.hidenandroidprogress
NOTICE THE PERIOD AND LACK OF EXTENSION.
and it is .hidenandroidprogress NOT .hideandroidprogress __notice the letter "n"__

Hello i tried your recovery and it has a few issues one being major. First off the up scroll button (the one that looks like a house) seems to select items instead of scroll up in the list. Also while on the subject of the buttons imho there a little small, and would look better more rounded, perhaps just putting a ring arround them.

If you swipe to the right on the screen it reboots the phone.

Ok now on to the major issue, it only backed up boot, system, and recovery. It did not back up data, datadata, cache, sd-ext, android.secure, or generate an md5 sum.

Other that that its good. It is not what i was expecting when i tried it. I was expecting to touch on the menu where the options are instead of using softkeys to navigate and select, but i still like this better than having to use vol keys and trackball, great job so far.

It is touch... You swipe to scroll. Swipe your finger up and down to scroll. Swipe right to select and SWIPE LEFT to go back. And thank you for your feedback. :D

Edit: and also that backup issue is a bug in clockworkmod. You have to put a file call:
.hidenandroidprogress in the /sdcard/clockworkmod/ folder. Notice the period and lack of extension.

Ok now i get it. Lol ok then heres my bug report.

Swipe left and right are way to sensitive. When scrolling up and down if you go just the slightest bit to the left or right, it either goes back or selects an item.

As i said earlier the up softkey selects items instead of moving up in the list.

Also as i said earlier not backing up everything or generating an md5.

Other than that it seems great.

i added the fix to the backup problem in the OP. add that file and itll solve that issue. that is a known issue in the base code of clockworkmod 5.x, im working on making a code fix for that. the workaround works fine for now tho. can you tell me what the "home" "menu" "back" & "search" capacitive buttons do in recovery? that way i can re-arrange the soft keys to line up with the corresponding capacitive button.

im guessing back = go back, search = select, but does home = scroll up or scroll down?

thanks

Home scrolls down, menu does nothing just vibes, back goes back, search selects. Also the on screen back key seems to select instead of go back like the on screen up key does.

EDIT: actually the menu button seems to go back also. Its hard to tell. I think when hitting home, menu, back, search, it is also picking up my finger slightly moving left or right when i hit it.

Also for the backup fix, that is just creating a file called .hiddenandroidprogress right? That file was already present in my cwm folder before i ever even tried this recovery. I ran the command anyways and tried to back up again but still only boot recovery and system.

ok i updated the file. the soft keys on screen should be fixed to at least be the right keys. im going to re-arrange the order to those of the capacitive once i get to my work computer tomoro. also, i made the left/right sensitivity lower. see how it works.

yes .hidenandroidprogress. what it does is stop cwm from enumerating the file list that it is backing up. if it gets stuck after that then i have to go in and debug the filesystem points i have probably as they are wrong for data, etc.

Still to sensitive left to right, and the on screen up key still goes back instead of up in the list.

When you make updates, can you provide change log with dates so we know when you updated it.

Thanks

Yes definitely. I have actually stopped doing anything for now since I'm getting an incredible in a few days so I can do my own testing. It was getting too difficult doing all my testing over the Internet lol. I'll be back with another version in about a week. So until then....

Trying this, may I ask what to do if I don't like this? How would one go back to the regular CWM?

This is only a bootable test, it changes nothing on your phone. You flash this it temp boots to the touch recovery, and then when you exit the touch recovery you will be exactly the way it was before flashing it. It is not permanent.
