Default CWM-based touch recovery

I have put together a touch recovery that I am now testing functionality on.So far it will backup and restore and touch seems to be working. Flash with dd on emulator or adb.
I used the recovery from the warp2 and tweaked it til it worked.

***Edit...Mod update***: this thread and its link is no longer supported by the OP. He is working on some other things for future threads. We will leave this thread open for now
Thanks for your contribution totlth


Update:4/8/13
This download has cwm6030 with support for backing up sd-ext if you have it
mod removed non working link

recognizes internal and external sdcard
no mount usb mass storage

Update:3/27/13
this is link to recovery w/usb mass storage mount
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/50339543/touch-recovery2.zip

mount usb mass storage is working on my end on 3 diff os, but
it no longer recognizes the internal sdcard (i.e. sdcard2)
backups and restore go straight to the external sdcard (i.e. sdcard)

adb instructions:
unzip and put on sdcard, name it whatever you like but remember the name
connect phone to pc and make sure usb debugging is enable on your phone
if you're on windows the path variables should automatically be defined when you installed the android sdk, if your on linux youl have to add your path manually

open terminal/cmd
type : adb shell
hit enter
type : dd if=/sdcard/"whatever-you-named-the-image-without-the-quotes".img of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/recovery
hit enter and wait
when prompt returns
type : reboot recovery
hit enter

terminal emulator instructions:
unzip and put on sdcard, name it whatever you like but remember the name
open terminal emulator and
type: su
hit enter, if prompted allow root permssion
type : dd if=/sdcard/"whatever-you-named-the-image-without-the-quotes".img of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/recovery
hit enter
when prompt returns
type : reboot recovery
hit enter

Update 4/15/13
Tip: if you're having trouble(i.e. file not found, no such file, etc.)
Double check your sdcard to see the exact name and path of the .img file.



btw - I'm not a developer nor do I claim to be
I don't care if you link to this post or if you make improvements/changes to recovery
nor do I care about receiving credit. although thanks are appreciated/ not necessary

I just like to share what I've learned with like minded individuals
stay groovy yall and share the knowledge
dadcup, jerryag and ZeroGeined like this.

Default it works so far!!!!!

Well, I flashed the recovery, made backups, and all the menus work. Even the soft buttons on the phone work. Home and menu go up and down and the back button does just that, go's back a menu. I haven't restored a backup yet but it seems like it will work. I will test a restore today And let you know what happened.

It appears CWM is coming a long ways, Shabby has one that works and now this guy, sweet. I'm curious to as what does or does not work in this I beleive I'll flash it and test as well now that Dj confirms it flashes properly.

Edit: I tested the CWM out. I successfully backed up and restored perfectly fine. The issues are the same as Shabby's Recovery minus the text wrap within the interface. The USB and ADB from recovery do not work, everything else appears fine. Also, the dating for recovery files is a bit off "1970" lol but, this Recovery is just as functional as Shabby's.

You can use dd or fastboot which ever you wish.

For dd:
Copy touch-recovery.img to the root of your SDcard.

Quote:
adb shell
su
dd if=/sdcard/touch-recovery.img of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/recovery
reboot recovery
For fastboot (touch-recovery.img in the same folder as your fastboot.exe)
- Method does not work for Windows 8 users

Quote:
adb shell
su
reboot bootloader (The screen will be black but, that's how our bootloader looks)
fastboot flash recovery touch-recovery.img
I have tried both Shabby and tolth's recoveries both seem to be pretty solid and equalivant other than Shabby has an awesome rainbow theme to his. I have this touch version on my own device currently as it does not text wrap and the interface works flawlessly.

Shabby explains in his thread also how to flash from terminal emulator if you guys want to view his directions [ZTE Avid 4G/Elden] CWM

I may have a way to fix mount islands in recovery. But I had to reload the laptop I was using. It's almost done updating now, so probably/hopefully I will have it "fingered" out. Lol

Do you have an IRC Network you chat on. I would gladly flash it to test for you before you release it on forums.

It's nice that two CWM were rolled out close to one another. I am not speaking for Shabby but I'm not sure if his interest in this device is high. He gave us CWM but, I beleive this touch if it is up to par as far as 100% functionality soon will be the main recovery we use unless Shabby updates his soon as well. Then we'll have a choice of touch and Shabby's Rainbow Penguin CWM mod.

as i told you in irc, requisite0 is your best hope of getting the device files fixed up more. while the cwm isnt perfect it will do exactly what everyone needs it to do which is nandroid and flash zips. with those two big things you need for people to start feeling safe enough to mess around with their phones . does teh touch recovery not do the word wrap even when you scroll via volume keys?

totlth, st pete sucks. kenneth city is worlds better ;P

Nah it doesn't text wrap even when vol up/down. USB MS doesn't work for me, could be the windows 8 issue. OP said he has it working for himself. Backup/restore works. I don't know if flashing zips works however.

I'm trying to help them feel safe by sacraficing myself at testing what needs to be tested x.x

How did you flash it?
The only flash method that I have tested is the dd method thru term emulator or adb.

I did notice the updated one took abit longer when making a backup. probably cause its putting it in external sd. not really a problem with it, just a observation. works great on my end though

update:3/27/13
both images work
the attached download does not have access to usb mass storage
but has both sdcards recognized

the dropbox link is the opposite of above

terminal emulator instructions:
unzip and put on sdcard, name it whatever you like but remember the name
open terminal emulator and enter su, if prompted allow root permssion
enter:
dd if=/sdcard/"whatever-you-named-the-image-without-the-quotes".img of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/recovery

enjoy

update:
this is link to updated recovery
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/50339543/touch-recovery2.zip

mount usb mass storage is working on my end on 3 diff os, but
it no longer recognizes the internal sdcard (i.e. sdcard2)
backups and restore go straight to the external sdcard (i.e. sdcard)
I'm leaving the other link up in case you prefer that one and don't care about usb mass storage in recovery

btw - I'm not a developer nor do I claim to be
I don't care if you link to this post or if you make improvements/changes to recovery
nor do I care about receiving credit. although thanks are appreciated/ not necessary

I just like to share what I've learned with like minded individuals
stay groovy yall and share the knowledge
PLEASE HELP
Why when I try to use terminal emulator it says after I press enter acesss denied I am currently on shabbys cwm but want to try this one

Did u type su and hit enter for root before you did that?
If you didn't it won't work.

It doesn't matter as long as you type the path out so it knows where to get the .img from
Example:
File name - 1. img in Downloads folder

Path - /sdcard/Downloads/1.img

Also check for typos

Check the file name and path that you typed and compare to where the file is
It has to match exactly
If its on your internal storage the path would be /Device/ "your-file-name-without-quotes"
Instead of /sdcard/blah-blah-you-know
