UPGRADE INSTRUCTIONS
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Flashing recovery with fastboot.

- Boot tablet into fastboot.
Code:
fastboot -i 0x0B05 flash recovery foo.img

- Replace foo with the file name.

- Once flashed reboot into bootloader.
Code:
fastboot reboot-bootloader

- Enter recovery.

-FLASHING WITH 'dd'

You will need a super user terminal to make this work .....

Code:
su

Code:
dd if=/sdcard/foo.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p4

Replace foo.img with the recovery image name .....

This will move the recovery image to /staging so on the next boot it flashes it to /recovery

So make sure you do a reboot before trying to enter recovery .......

This command also expects the image to be in /sdcard

HOW TO TAKE A RECOVERY LOG
You will be taking this log cause of some kind of error message .....

Once you get and error message, here is how to retrieve a recovery log ....

Using a PC with adb/fastboot installed on it, and if windows the correct drivers. ....

Code:
adb pull /tmp/recovery.log

This log will be in the same directory as the terminal/cmd window is cd'd into ....

Now you have the log, upload it to a pasting site or for download, and give us a link....

Could you remove showing the kernel boot and add dock SD card mount in next relese?

Yes I add the dock sd card, the framebuffer is part of the zImage and something we have for debugging ....

The framebuffer is going to stay, but I may be able to repack the recovery with a different zImage.....

I just dont know how much demand for it or time I would like to spend on it .....

Thx Josh

You may also want to add instructions for noobs... Is it a blob, img or zip... Is it flashable in recovery, fastboot... ijs...

:cool::cool:

I will add some instrution over the next few days, yes ..... :good:

Yes for it is a blob, but the build outputs a recovery.img and I see no need to rename it ..... :p

Thx Josh

I had in the 2.8.1 being able to repair an exfat 64GB external micro sd card.
Upgraded to 2.8.5 the only option is to change the file system. Went back to 2.8.1 and it no longer is available now.

Is this the same for others?

Regards
Duke

is this for use with any rom or only for KANG Omni
Works great with KatKiss 5.1!
Just make sure that you do not try to install it from within TWRP, using the image installation functionality. I did that yesterday, and ended up without a recovery and with a tablet that would not allow me to install one. I had to do a backup/full wipe/restore of my tablet to revive it. No harm done, but I got a big scare!

Check out this thread by @_that lots of good info in there ....:D

Very enlightening. So, if I understood things correctly, if I unpack the recovery blob with blobunpack, then twrp_tf300t_kang_2.8.6.0.img.SOS, which is contained therein, is the actual image, which I could, theoretically, use with tools that handle images, such as the TWRP image installer. (I've learned my lesson, however, and will stick to the tried and true methods!)

No the device will not flash an image.... It has to be a blob .....
