Description
This is an Amon Ra style custom recovery based on drellisdee's (aka getitnowmarketing) source with a few changes added by me.

The "nandroid" script includes code to auto-reboot your phone upon completing a backup, which could be especially useful after a long, compressed backup, but it's never been an option in the UI. I wanted this feature to be included in the backup and restore menus simply for convenience, i.e. restore a nandroid before going to bed so the phone is ready for you in the morning, make a backup while you're mowing the yard so the phone is ready for you when you come inside, etc.

Accordingly, I modified nandroid-mobile.sh to include autoreboot on restore and modified and built a new recovery binary to offer autoreboot in the backup and restore menus. While tinkering with it, I decided to modify the font color and background graphics. Themes and features explained below.

Change Log

Code:
v4.3 - Add Get Current ROM Version to Other menu
Add initial dalvik wipe to Superwipe to ICS and AOKP themes from v4.2.1

v4.2.1 - Very minor
Update mason theme to new logo
Add initial dalvik wipe to Superwipe (forgot it on v4.2)

v4.2 - Add Roboto font (from CEnnis91)
Reorganize and clarify wipe menu, add Calkulin's Clear Temp (wipe Temp Files in recovery) and Superwipe
Center main recovery screen header and switch to all caps

v4.1 - Added two new choices to the top of the wipe menu:
Combined cache & dalvik wipe
Combined boot, cache, data, system (aka Calkulin's FORMAT ALL) wipe
Changed auto-reboot message from "Rebooting recovery..." to "Rebooting phone..."

v4.0.1 - Fixed symlinks  to dump_image and flash_image, which should correct any restore issues from v4.0 (thanks drellisdee)
Modified nandroid-mobile.sh and extracommands.c to allow recovery to handle autoreboot versus the script (thanks drellisdee)
Added message and three second delay before autorebooting (thanks drellisdee)

Features
All features from v3.11 + autoreboot + improved wiping options + roboto

Known Issues
None at this time

Important Notes
1. To autoreboot, just select that option along with your other backup/restore choices and run as normal. Upon completion, you will see a reboot message along with a three second delay before rebooting.

2. The AOKP theme is just that-- a themed recovery-- not officially endorsed/supported by the AOKP team so please don’t bother them with anything related to this recovery.

3. Compatible with nandroids made under previous versions of Amon Ra (and probably CWM... dunno, never use it. Someone else that tries- Chime in!)

There IS no better recovery than this for the evo. No way, no how. It's a pleasure to have this on my phone bro. Thanks for letting me test it. All of the greatness of amonra and so much more. Now xda members get it! Even better.

What about an option for auto reboot in flash menu? When selecting the last item to flash you could check auto reboot instead of going back twice for reboot. Just throwing it out there, not sure if its even possible.

Good to see this on xda for everyone to flash and love. I also grabbed it from TCD while checking out the Reloaded Preview. It improves on the already great RA Style 3.11 Recovery. Thanks for working on this and sharing it.

    Thought I'd mention, I'm no longer working on this recovery (if you couldn't tell ;) ). The base is pretty dated now and beyond my ability to bring to new devices. TWRP is an awesome recovery, so I'd look for that on your new phones and tablets. Zip queues are sweet and while there is no auto-reboot it's not that big of a deal since it backs ups and restores so fast. You can check them out here or in your respective device forum. I really appreciate everyone who liked this recovery. I went from bugging drellisdee to learning how to make it on my own and that was a really great experience.

    Right now, I'm trying to pitch in on ParanoidAndroid for the Nexus 7 when possible and hope to upgrade my phone soon (waiting for my contract to expire late November and for what Google has to say on 10/29). Thanks again everybody!
