NDRUtils-Google play says "your device isn't compatible with this version":(

Installed dual recovery XSP-2.7.102-BETA
On Stock android 4.3-12.1.A.1.201

A suggestion.. How about setting camera button to enter CWM?

I'll have a look and add the SP to play's compatibility list... Sorry about that :p

The reason for not using the camera button is because of cross device compatibility.

Next major version will have a different solution to this though.

I've updated the app's compatibility list, I saw your model wasn't the only one not receiving updates...

All have been corrected.

Basic Recovery Functions don't work

@[NUT]

Hello!

Your dual recovery looks very promising that I reflashed my phone just to install it (yes, i got to remove the old recovery that way, because there are no removal instructions on the thread I used before). Upon successful installation, everything works, great!

After some minutes I thought of playing with PhilZ recovery. What is awesome is that, I now have an awesome recovery. While testing every possible functions, I tried the "Flash Zip". And I chose to flash from sdcard0. What is interesting here is that the recovery cannot mount sdcard0. I stand there weird, felt that the error is extremely unsuitable.

With sadness due, I decided to not use PhilZ. I rebooted and booted into TWRP. Awesome again, I can't use the touch screen at all. I can't do nothing. And this forced me to shut down my phone via the force shutdown button in the back.

Yes, maybe I can still use PhilZ, however moving every possible flash zips into sdcard1 is a pain!

If you want some logs, I have them in my Mega cloud.. Here's the link.

Any fix would be extremely appreciated from the real bottom of my nerdy brain and hearts! :victory:

I think I included a test-fix version this time, while it confirms my hunch it didn't fix it... (thank you for that) I do know how to fix it for sure, I'll inform you when 108 is online.

Okay I would be glad to see the outcome :)

@TechnoSparks

I have a small thing to test for you, if you're game?

Use NDRUtils to reboot to CWM and see if that can actually mount sdcard0?


Yes I did what you asked and the mounting works while pooping rainbow! :victory:

I am quite a noob here tho, philz is CWM based, right? So this is probably an error from the Philz recovery, isn't it?
