Default [Odin] Clockworkmod Recovery - Not compatible with Rom Manager yet

This does not mean you can flash CWM through Rom Manager yet! Do not try it. In fact, Rom Manager is not supported yet. You are warned.

I'm too tired to type a long post, so I'll be brief. Flash this with Odin found in the same forum as this post. Haven't tested flashing zips because I've never made one before. Nandroid works because I spent all day trying to get it to work. Your warranty is now void. Please don't sue me.

http://hardestyhosting.com/mirror/admire-cwm.tar

Almost forgot to thank Shabbypenguin for his proper BoardConfig.mk and for dealing with me all day, Unforgiven512 for getting Odin working, PlayfulGod for his input, DRockstar, Koush, and everyone else.

Steps:

1. Download http://goo.gl/3z64A (Odin) and http://k0nane.info/rom/indulge-drivers.exe (Drivers)
2. Install the drivers. There's not much to it.
3. Follow the steps to enter download mode at [ACS] THE ODIN THREAD: Return to stock OR in short:
a. Turn the phone all the way off, then remove and replace the battery and make sure the usb cable is unplugged.
b. Plug the computer end of the cable into your computer.
c. Hold down the Camera button, tightly. The Camera button is kinda flimsy.
d. While still holding down the Camera button, plug the usb cable into your phone.
e. Wait a few seconds. You should be at a screen warning you about how custom roms are dangerous to your warranty. You already know that, so hit Volume Up.
4. On your computer, extract Odin and open it.
5. Without touching any other options (don't do it, I'm not helping if you do,) click the OPS button and select the .ops file in the same folder as Odin.
6. Click PDA and select the cwm tar I posted in this thread and just click OK when it warns about an "invalid image."
7. Click Start and wait.
8. If your phone reboots, you have CWM installed and can boot into it by holding Volume Down and Back while turning on the phone. If the green bar with the timer doesn't move after about a minute, take your battery out and start over.

EDIT: Do not PM anyone I credited for ROMs. They don't know.

For a port of CWM to be available for installation through Rom Manager, it needs to be able to be compiled from sources merged into the CWM tree. Unfortunatly, the method in which CWM supports RFS in the official tree is an ARMv7 binary which is incompatible with our phone which is ARMv6. In order for my CWM port to format RFS, I used the binary from the stock recovery ("fat.format") which is hard-linked to a binary called "linker" in /system/bin. On the stock recovery/rom, you cannot format /system, so the stock RFS format binary always expects /system to be mounted. In order for me to get RFS formatting to work, I had to put the "linker" binary on the initramfs next to the kernel on the recovery partition under /system/bin. This is very kludgy and scared off Koush because of initial fears that having /system contain files could break multiple things.

In any case, further development has been halted because I broke the phone's NAND and can no longer access /cache or /data due to bad blocks. I've got the poor thing running off the SD card completely. I'm still not asking for donations but I can gladly do a search for the sources I used for someone else to continue development.
LormarTX and twogbsd like this.

Just as a reminder, you cannot flash until you have hit Volume Up at the warning screen when you enter Odin mode.

I can assure you that this works. It's not like I posted some random build. I spent most of Monday trying to fix the exact RFS problem you're thinking of. The fat.format binary has some strange static linkings that I solved by grabbing another binary and integrating it into the recovery ramdisk. Also, I had to modify the CWM source pertaining to RFS partition formatting because it called fat.format wrong and refused to format partitions. Other than that, it should be for the most part safe.

If you want to test out how it handles RFS, do a Nandroid backup and restore it. Nandroid formats /system with fat.format, so if it works, there's a little bit a reassurance.

I will play with it 2moro. I will test the ability to wipe cache n dalvik. I will see how it handles a nandroid. If this works then I'll create a flashable version of my rom with an advance update script.

No offense but I don't know you. Got any links to any other projects or is this your first? I know people that r known devs that have been working on this for some time and haven't figured out the issue that u said u solved in one day.

I don't know about the rest of you here but I think I'll wait till Mystery gives his OK and releases an update! Just my thoughts. Rather be safe then sorry.

http://hardestyhosting.com/mirror/admire-cwm.tar

Almost forgot to thank Shabbypenguin for his proper BoardConfig.mk and for dealing with me all day, Unforgiven512 for getting Odin working, PlayfulGod for his input, DRockstar, Koush, and everyone else.

Steps:

1. Download http://goo.gl/3z64A (Odin) and http://k0nane.info/rom/indulge-drivers.exe (Drivers)
2. Install the drivers. There's not much to it.
3. Follow the steps to enter download mode at [ACS] THE ODIN THREAD: Return to stock OR in short:
a. Turn the phone all the way off, then remove the battery and usb cable.
b. Plug the computer end of the cable into your computer.
c. Hold Volume Down and the Camera button, tightly. The Camera button is kinda flimsy.
d. While still holding down Volume Down and the Camera button, plug the usb cable into your phone.
e. Hold the buttons for about four seconds, then let go. You should be at a screen warning you about how custom roms are dangerous to your warranty. You already know that, so hit Volume Up.
4. On your computer, extract Odin and open it.
5. Without touching any other options (don't do it, I'm not helping if you do,) click the OPS button and select the .ops file in the same folder as Odin.
6. Click PDA and select the cwm tar I posted in this thread.
7. Click Start and wait.
8. If your phone reboots, you have CWM installed and can boot into it by holding Volume Down and Back while turning on the phone. If the green bar with the timer doesn't move after about a minute, take your battery out and start over.
So are you suppose to put the battery back in while holding down the camera and vol down button?

mystery cwm works, SuigintouLain, playfulgod,and i spent many an hour trying to figure out the rfs issues, glad to see it was finally fixed

this wont allow overclocking, or apps2d, or anything....

this allows you to make backups of your phone, and restore them, allow you to flash unauthorized software

This is cool for backing up and restoring and installing non system mods.

but

Isn't this a bad idea since most of the MetroPCS 2.3.4 is not Deodexed (to save space & integrity), meaning if someone flashes something (zip file for example) that has to do with the system....it will remove the file integrity and cause system boot loop.

Although if the system is Deodexed, than that will be a great tool to apply update that's related to the system.

Does this wipe data on its own, like a full ROM would do? or is it like Mysterys Admiral BeastRom/theme, that just switches a couple things and adds a couple tweaks.?

preform a backup first and then install. if you dont, like i did, then restore from your back up. thats what i did, therefore no harm done. But the UI and font change but other than that idk

No You do not have to wipe anything. this will customize your phone, when more people give me more suggestions then i will add it to the full rom im creating but again i dont know the codes to overclocking this phone but far as other stuff i got you.

No, that's only to make sure the phone is fully off. Make sure to put the battery back in before performing the Volume Down/Camera move.

Those bother me too, and I'm going to look into a simple deodex/root/cwm Odin flash with simple add-ons.
