DEPRECIATED. PLEASE USE TWRP INSTEAD


CWM5 Based recovery for the Motorola Xoom.

Main features:
  • Tar backups (Application extraction in Titanium backup)
  • Dual storage support - uses both the internal storage and the external sdcard
  • Openrecovery scripting support - Supports flashing through the GooManager application
  • Softkey version available (based on the original touch recovery for the Galaxy Nexus)

Notes:
  • By default nandroid progress is hidden. To show the nandroid progress, place a file called .shownandroidprogress at /sdcard/clockworkmod
  • Nandroid backups from an earlier recovery will not work.

Installation
Flash the zip file through recovery.

OR

Flash the image with fastboot
Code:
fastboot flash recovery eos-recovery-r6.img


Downloads:

Normal version

Softkey Version

Download link for the softkey.zip doesn't work, but still managed to flash the img version through fastboot.

Thanks for this amazing (first) softkey recovery for xoom :D

Works great here,softkeys :)

Thank you Solarnz!

One question though, can I use backups larger then 2.1 GiB with this recovery?
I couldn´t with rouges recovery.. some fault with the tar binary in recovery.
I will try it myself but Ihave to shrink my data partition first...

I have the problem on my galaxy nexus with latest touch CWM

Regards.

The coolest recovery ever seen. Great job done. The softKey version is really great, avoids use of those annoying hardware buttons. Really love it. :D

EDIT:
-Just found bug with USB mounting from recovery, the eroor message is "E:Unable to open ums lunfile (No such file or directory). I have UMTS 3G MX01 version of xoom. Anyone else found this bug?

Thanks for the recovery with softkey .. having the Nexus I feel at home! and then with the physical buttons are a little annoying, since it has not xoom key performance .. is now much better .. Good going for the great work ..

False sense of hope :'(

The four bottoms on the bottom of the screen are as follows from left to right:
Back
Up
Down
Enter/Select

The options can't be physically touched. You have to use the soft keys to scroll through the options.

Still better than using the volume rocker and power button but not what I was expecting.

This is frikkin awsome solarnz! Thanks so much for your work :D

It got frustrating with those little volume buttons, and coming here from touch on my Nexus S was an adjustment... but this is great ;)

... What did you think "Softkeys" meant? There is a reason why I didn't say it was a touch recovery...

I for one appreciate this use of soft keys. I fat finger too often and I can't imagine having to touch each command line.
Bottom line, this is great and works for me! Thanks solarnz. My physical buttons and my fat fingers thank you!

    Thread cleaned of junk posts. I left the good ones that say things like:

    the devs don't owe you anything

    this is not a tech support forum or customer service

    devs do this as a hobby, they have families, jobs, homes, etc.

    .....

    Stay on topic, and be nice to eachother.

    @solarnz if you ever need me send a PM, I try my best to take care of developers wishes, thanks for all you do for the community!

    I haven't had time to look into these issues yet.

    Please remember this is only a hobby, I'm not employed to do any of this.
