for more screenshots check attachments



[ info ]

This Recovery will reside on the /recovery partition of the device and will give you lots more features than any existing recoveries for this device...



[ credits / special thanks ]

  • Koush - for the brilliant work & coding on CWM recovery
  • Team Revolutionary - for the initial CWM4 recovery... i have used the recovery.fstab and HTC charger from their recovery-ramdisk
  • Napstar - my teammate (Team UtterChaos) for his work on implementing touch based interface
  • sztupy - for his work on SteamMOD recovery (the core touch interface is based on his work)



[ Requirements ]

  • S-OFF device
  • HoneyComb version
  • WiFi Flyer only????
  • CWM4 Recovery (by Team Revolutionary)



[ features ]

  • now featuring Touch based navigation interface!
  • features derived from CWM5
    • ability to backup & restore to/from internal SDCARD
    • ability to flash custom update.zip from internal SDCARD
    • faster .TAR backups (backups created using this new recovery MAY NOT BE COMPATIBLE with older CWM4)
  • my additions
    • changes to graphics (ported some graphics from CWM5.5 ICS edition)
    • revamped layout for recovery menu (to improve navigation) [renamed few options and changed their order]
    • changed "wipe data/factory reset" option to just "factory reset", and detailed the partitions which will be wiped
    • added reboot options
      • reboot into system
      • reboot into recovery
      • reboot into fastboot mode
    • some modification in "Partition SDCard" section:
      • put up a confirmation to warn the user that this option will wipe sdcard
      • added ability to select filesystem when creating new layout
    • add confirmation to "backup" option in Nandroid menu... it used to keep getting pressed by mistake and start making backups immediately... now it will ask u before starting backup ;)
    • removed tons of "NO"s from some menus...


[ WARNING ]


THIS RECOVERY IS STILL IN TESTING... MAKE SURE THAT U HAVE UR COMPLETE DATA BACKED-UP (INCLUDING SDCARD DATA)...

and incase this doest work correctly make sure that u can restore to factory condition...

"Partition SDCard" option in CWM5 WILL WIPE UR EXTERNAL SDCARD!!!

I have only tested it to work on my WIFI Flyer... please check if it works for the 3G version... if 3G version uses a different partition table THEN DO NOT USE IT ON 3G VERSION!





[ how to install this recovery ]

  1. download the recovery package (its an update.zip)
  2. place the downloaded package on external SDCARD
  3. reboot into recovery and flash this package
  4. thats it! new recovery will now be installed


[ how to get back to Team Revolutionary's CWM4 Recovery ]

  1. download the Team Revolutionary's CWM4 Recovery package (its an update.zip)
  2. place the downloaded package on external SDCARD
  3. reboot into recovery and flash this package
  4. thats it! old recovery will now be installed

DooMLoRD, can you confirm that you have off-mode charging working properly? Having a recovery that doesn't is not a good situation to get into in a device with no removable battery.

the necessary files for that are already in place...

may be someone can help test that...

additionally: is the partition layout on GB different? and waht abt the 3G version?

Reserved for me at the moment

Will give it a try and post here + stuff from other posts

Thanks a lot... Great idea

Sent from my HTC Flyer P510e using xda premium

EDIT:
OK just chose to install your zip in CWM - successful

Phone is rebooting... to android, not back to recovery - booting since 5 minutes
(no bootloop - HTC quietly brilliant logo visible)

EDIT2:

pressed power - powered down (vibrated once) booting again

Coolexe´s rom with your kernel just successfully started

will reboot soon to bootloeader check your stuff

EDIT3:
got into your recovery... old backups still there
Rebooted from recovery to Androd without problems now
just the first boot after installing your recovery was a hangup solved by pressing power button untill manual reboot

ALL OK

HTC Flyr 32GB 3G

All over the place
so there is a common recovery for 3g/wifi versions in GB?

Yes, layout is the same, sizes may differ, but that doesn't matter so log as the partitions reside at the same device path.

The partitions are the same layout but the kernel offsets are different, you'll need a GB kernel for GB and HC for HC.

ok so from what i see, comparing the 3G-GB with WIFI-HC versions of CWM4 recovery from Team Revolutionary, is that the ramdisk (recovery.fstab i.e. partition table info) is the same on both these versions...

so i think..

  1. 3G/WIFI versions use same partition table
  2. to have GB/HC versions i just need corresponding zImage


can someone confirm this?


if the above is true then the version i have posted in 1st post (HC-WIFI version) will work on HC-3G too...

Sorry, I wasn't very clear on what I said earlier. I meant off-mode charging. Device powered off and charger plugged in. The recovery is used to handle this charging mode. The use case which is of particular concern is what happens if the battery goes completely flat. I'd suggest the test is to be charged about 50% power off and plug into wall charger for 30 minutes or so and then check the charge level. I can't test it myself right now because I'm working on other things on my flyer.

oh ok...

i use the offset: 0x14400000 for the HC recovery/kernel

whats the offset for GB?

Sorry, I wasn't very clear on what I said earlier. I meant off-mode charging. device powered off and charger plugged in. The recovery is used to handle this charging mode.

that isnt directly related to recovery...

that should be taken care by bootloader or main kernel...

0x4400000 ( same without the 1 )

Nope, it's recovery on HTC devices, we had loads of problems with pyramid and a few others when revolutionary was first released.
