Quick update of both internal and external SD supporting recoveries to v5.0.2.8

Both .img files in one package: http://www.mediafire.com/file/0auipyswgqdsiah/cwm-5.0.2.8.zip
MD5#: 4f93fab2e4e51ecdb40acc11c9a4ba99

By request a quick explanation of the difference between the two recoveries:

Usually, your recovery image will look on the external SD card for ROMs to flash, and backups to restore, and the external version here is no different. For the most part that is fine and dandy (unless you don't have an SD card I guess), however the stock O2X mounts it's internal SD card as /sdcard, which confuses ROM Manager a fair bit.

The internal version of the recovery mounts the internal storage as /sdcard as well, so ROM Manager can find backups it's made etc.

NOTE: Backups made with v5 are not compatible with earlier versions.

  1. None this time, as I doubt anyone uses SD-EXT or cares about the splash

Was bored, so thought I'd be productive. Here is a build of CWM recovery that uses the internal SD card rather than the external. If you're on a stock based ROM, then this will let ROM Manager interact with the recovery properly.

Coool, just what I needed.
Still havn't found time to buy a good sd-card yet :(


How to enter recovery?

Does the usb mount work?
With external sd if something goes wrong you can take out the sd, copy the rom or kernel you want and then put it back in to flash it, you can't do that with internal memory ;)

support internal and also external sd?

Only internal, I've just tried mounting external to _ExternalSD, but it wont browse it. I'm probably doing something wrong though heh

In the event of a horrible disaster, you'd have to NVFLash the external SD CWM I guess.

/data is where all things like apps, email, texts etc and are stored, this is what's wiped during a factory reset.

I've never used the stock recoveries wipe, so I don't know if that blitzes the internal SD card, but Clockwork doesn't.

    in this case i don't know how to do...
    i have checked inside the bat file but i don't know which comand use from terminal emulator..

    Code:
    adb-windows push psneuter /data/local/psneuter
    
    adb-windows shell chmod 4755 /data/local/psneuter
    
    adb-windows shell /data/local/psneuter 
    
    adb-windows wait-for-device
    
    adb-windows push clockwork-ext.img /data/local/
    
    adb-windows shell dd if=/data/local/clockwork-ext.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p7
    
    adb-windows shell rm /data/local/clockwork-ext.img
    
    adb-windows shell rm /data/local/psneuter

    Those comands aren't for windows adb?


    The best way is:

    - copy the desired .img on you sdcard
    - run a Terminal Emulator
    - launch the Terminal Emulator, then type:
    'su' (without quotes) and enter, it will runs the session as Super User.
    then type:

    'dd if=/pathto/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p7', replacing /pathto/recovery.img by the path for where you put it, for example: /mnt/scdard/clockwork-ext.img for example. Use a File Explorer to see the correct path.

    I've already done it it works perfectly. As your phone is rooted and as you make the stuf from the inside you don't need psneuter exploit, so ther's just one command to run.
