Hello world !!!

I'm very happy to present you a project of a new kind : The RecoverX Project

The goal of this project is to gather ALL the recoveries for ALL android devices in ONE tool which install them on the devices. RecoverX is coded in C++ thanks to QtSDK and allow to install a recovery on more than 150 different devices !!!

You just have to select your phone and your recovery, to click "Install" and RecoverX does the rest, It's as simple as that ;)

This program have been published on XDA News : Here and here

Behind this tool : over 120 - 180 hours of work, 4200 lines of code and +600 uses by day !!!

Here is the list of the recoveries which are available :

This program require different prerequesties, depending of your device

- Wether you need an unlocked bootloader to flash the recovery partition (and fastboot drivers on your PC)
- Wether you need root access and usb debugging activated (if busybox is not installed, RecoverX will ask you the permission to install it).

To boot in bootloader mode :
- Tape "reboot bootloader" in terminal emulator.
- Or shutdown your device, hold "Volume +", "Volume -" and press power button.

To boot in recovery mode (depending of the device) :
- Tape "reboot recovery" in terminal emulator.
- Or shutdown your device, enter in bootloader mode and select "Recovery".
- Or press back button when the device start.
- Or press volume button when the device start.
- Or tap the screen when the device start.

PS : On the first lauch, the download may fail, please, try to restart the program again.

@celka : Hum, your device seem to not be rooted correctly because adb can not remount the device :

Remount device (r/w)...
remount: not found

However, I tried to solve the problem by remount the device by an other way and I publish a new version : RecoverX v1.1

Keep me informed if it's work !!!
Thanks in advance,
LEDelete

@mangdasire : yes, it's work on locked bootloader.

@skuhn1978 : No problem, but this tool isn't for ICS because I didn't find a recovery compatible with ICS so I think the file "charger" works on 2.3.

But you seem to be informed about a recovery for ICS, can you give the the link ??? And did you know if my file "charger" works on Android 2.3 ???

Thanks for your usefull post !!!

I´m not a developer, i have learned such things by search google ;) and try and error.

The recovery you use CWM 5.0.2.7 should work in ICS only thing is you must replace the charger-file. If charger works in ICS and GB must someone try.

I saw it that the recovery works in ICS because i installed the APP http://goo.gl/XurYt before it was updated for ICS, only change the charger file and it worked perfectly. Now the APP is updated to ICS, you can install it it will create a folder naa... on your SDCARD with the CWM recovery files.

So you mean RecoverX has installed the recovery correctly on your phone, no ???
Can you confirm it's work, thanks.

@skuhn1978 : Thank you very much, I will add the charger file for ICS in the next version. Thank you very much for your contribution and if you notice an other thing, do not hesitate !!!

    Today is the first year of The RecoverX Project.

    The 14th July, in 2012, I published the first version of RecoverX, which was only working for 9 Xperia devices. Today, RecoverX is compatible with almost 150 android devices.

    I'm very proud of this achievement and I will continue my effort in order to improve the user experience.

    Finally, I would like to thank everyone, developpers, contributors, and users for supporting me in this big project, thank you !
