Mmm, show me the source code :)

This is not open source.. If people didn't post it on XDA without my permission I wouldn't ever post this here. This is just my little personal recovery which i created for my personal use. Anyway mods also allowed to post it even without the recovery source code. But if some mode still have a problem with it then just lock the thread and I won't share it on XDA anymore.

But just to explain to some people here how are the licenses working..
I don't have to share the source if anyone is asking. I'm not under GPL but under Apache. So everything is OK ;)

ZCX is too much outdated recovery. Use official TWRP to flash this.

ZCX is too much outdated recovery. Use official TWRP to flash this.
Meaning I failed to install redwolf because zcx is too old for this recovery?
And so that means I should download the latest official twrp and flash that and lazy flasher inside the zcx recovery and then followed by reboot and then flash redwolf latest??

    Red Wolf Recovery is custom recovery based on TWRP source code however some things are working here slightly different then you might expected. The main objective of this project is to provide stable recovery with features which you have never seen before in a recovery and which have not been accepted for adding to the official source code of TWRP. This recovery is also first recovery on the world with password protection.​

    • For devices: Kenzo & Kate
    • Authors build: ATG Droid
    • Developers: ATG Droid

    - If screen is turned off then automatically detect AROMA Installer package and unblank screen before starting the update binary which is going to call AROMA GUI, so we won't be stuck at the black screen since AROMA engine require screen to be turned on.
    - Added ability to change OTA Survival driver properties from the recovery GUI, allowing recovery to support "out of the box" almost all incremental OTA updates from different OEMs/custom ROMs out there (as long as they have correctly formatted metadata).
    - Notify user about the current activity of the deactivation process - that's handled under the console 
    - Improved dumwolf driver
    - Removed the vibration feedback from all GUI elements
    - Automatically resize bootable partitions during nandroid backups
    - Changed theme to black/white/red style based on @TBO material theme
    - Data files aren't anymore saved on the storage partitions, which means that we're now able to survive even encrypted device.
    - Some bug fixes and improvements...
    
    [B][U]RedWolf-V3.2.1_026-Kate_Kenzo.img[/U][/B]
    
    - This is just a quick bug fix release for MIUI users. So is highly recommend to update to this build if you are using MIUI.
    
    [B][U]RedWolf-V3.2.1_025-Kate_Kenzo.img[/U][/B]

    New update is here!

    - RedWolf-V3.1_018-Kenzo_Kate.img

    This is the biggest update ever in the history of this
    recovery. Also to answer some questions here - i'm not ever going to fix
    some "bug" which i don't have on my device. In the previous builds there sometimes
    happened that someone founded some bug and always if i was also experiencing that bug then
    it was fixed in a few days or even hours. But if i don't have it then i can't do anything about it.
    Now let's get to this update...

    Main changes in the V18 build are these:

    - Recovery base was updated to the AOSP 8.0.0 (of course special thanks to Dees Troy). Also from what i know redwolf is right now the only recovery for Kenzo which fully support installation of the AOSP 8.0.0 based ROMs.

    - Added support for the automatic reboot after the successfully finished restore process

    - Added full support for the MIUI Incremental package installation, detection etc (Anyway this thing is
    still in the beta version and might won't work correctly - i'm not even MIUI user so don't expect me to give this that much of attention)

    - Deactivation process of the dm-verity & forced encryption was moved to the installation.

    - Added new section called "special actions" in to the advanced menu... Here you can select what recovery should
    automatically modify in the ROM during the installation (like changing props or deactivating dm-verity & forced encryption).

    - Speed improvements while recovery is doing some actions like changing access password etc.

    - And also some bug fixes & improvements...


    Huge thanks to the Chinese dev called "BY~XM" for his development on the ZCX recovery from which i learned
    a lot about the Incremental package detection, installation etc.
    Also special thanks to the dadi11 for compiling & testing!


    Anyway if someone want to see a full changelog then here it is:

    OK so official images of the Red Wolf Recovery based on the TWRP 3.2.1 & AOSP 8.1.0 are now out...

    These are a test builds but I would say everything in it is working perfectly.. I'm right now not sure only about MIUI Incremental OTA support so test this and let me know. ;)

    Btw. builds are now moved on teamhorizon's servers as I would say that it should be better than on AFH...

    Also please delete old recovery config file before booting in to this.. You can find it in "/sdcard/WOLF/.wolfs". It's better to delete it to prevent any unexpected issue with old files. It's like when you are clean installing your ROM.

    ************************************

    Changelog:

    - Fixed GUI color glitch while starting Aroma Installer update-binary
    - Optimized pigz runtime process
    - Updated recovery base to the AOSP 8.1.0 & TWRP 3.2.1
    - Highly improved signature verification for Incremental packages now we can be really
    sure if the package is compatible with the ROM.
    - Introduced a file based backup/restore engine. Expect it to be improved with the next builds...
    - Improved security related to the password protection
    - Fixed loading of the AromaFM config file
    - System survival process for Incremental packages is now set by default
    - Code optimizations
    - Removed the dumwolf process
    - Added signature check for incremental OTA survival so we won't be unnecessarily creating a new
    one if it's signed under the same access key
    - Magisk updated to the version 15.1
    - Added Indonesian language
    - Fixed issues with Chinese characters...
    - Governor which is changed by the action in the recovery GUI is now automatically set for all
    cores instead of only four.
