So now that this exists, how do you flash back to 2.2.1 or flash forward to 2.3.3?

All thats needed in a nandroid as far as sharing purposes or to use as a rom base to make a custom from is boot.img and system.img. Has anyone posted these for the latest gingerbread update?

Once i finally committed to doing this, its stupid easy. Just read the full post on the how to page and it took me under 2 minutes with no mistakes. Just made my first nandroid of my modified 2.2.1 backup, thinking about doing 2.2.1 stock before i flash a 2.3.3

Alright...

The gingerbread system & boot images are here:

http://www.4shared.com/file/mAEpQ6fC/BS-20111129-2052.html

Now, I used schmude07's nandroid and restored my phone with it. It booted into 2.2.1, but I had no baseband and the cellular radio and battery meter did not work. So I suppose I did something wrong. Should I remove everything but the system & boot img files and the md5? Will it work - that big of a change should cause some problems. I want to experiment, but I don't want to brick.

Were you running 2.3.3 then restored into 2.2.1?

Yes, I went back to 2.2.1 but the radio did not work and I had no signal. In the "about phone" section it said the baseband was unknown.

I get it. The nandroid must be made with only the boot and system files and nothing else. When I went into the nandroid and deleted everything but the boot & system img and md5 it would not work. I suppose a checksum problem. I am now uploading a gingerbread nandroid made with only the boot & system img so the md5 will match.

Schmude07: please make and post a new nandroid that only has the boot and system image files.

Here is the link to the gingerbread nandroid:

BS-20111129-2052.zip - 4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download

Exciting times nonetheless...

It works kind of like windows restore points but better. If you made a full nandroid and then restored it 5 years later then your phone would be just like it was when the nandroid was made.

Since you are still on 2.2.1, please make a nandroid using only the boot.img and system.img and then post it somewhere so we can download it.

No, you will not need to wipe your phone. You will only be creating a backup of the boot section and operating system and will not include your user data.

Reboot into recovery. Select backup/restore from the home menu. In the next menu select Nand backup. In the next menu there will be a list with check boxes on the left. Scroll through and ensure that only boot & system have an x in the boxes, leave all the others un-xed (?) then go to the bottom and select "Perform Backup".

What this does is creates a nandroid with the correct md5 checksum for the boot information and the operating system. It does not move any of the user data as that is all stored in the data section.

When you go into your SD card with your computer or file explorer the nandroid will be located on the SD card in a folder named nandroid. That folder opens to another folder that is used to identify the device to the recovery program. Your actual nandroids are in this folder and are named by which files they contain and the date and time they were created i.e the one I made & posted earlier is called BS-20111129-2052 because it containes the boot & system images and it was made on 29NOV2011 at 2052 UTC.

It would be a great idea to wipe the dalvik cach before rebooting the phone after restoring (replacing) the boot and system images because otherwise things are going to be weird.

^Boot and System.img for 2.2.1

would it be possible to take a nandroid with a nd5 for all data and just switch out the 2.2.1 with the 2.3.3 boot and system? or would i be asking for trouble

I don't think that would be a good idea...

but you can try it. Worst case is you go into a boot loop and would need to call recovery with adb.

Fix it back by going into recovery & restoring your nandroid. On the 2.3.3 to 2.2.1 from it bootloops. Fortunately I can go into recovery with adb.

It almost works. It gets to the VWZ screen with the progress bar with the "initializing, please wait". It freezes and then reboots. Not good. So I have some more research to do.

mine also did the initializing please wait screen and i held my breath but i had a successful boot into 2.3.3 with root privileges already which was nice. Maybe if we make another nandroid with more than just the boot and system? what does the .android_secure do? i'm assuming data would just be my preferences and such and sd-ext is sd card contents? also what about clearing the cache? or other things. Also it may seem dumb, but did you clear your dalvik cache again when you restored my .img?

would updating to 2.3.3 and doing a factory reset do anything? also how hard would it be to get back to how i was if it doesnt? would i need to root again to do it?

Something is missing, I'm just not sure what. What is your baseband on 2.2.1?

This is where apps that are apps that are moved to the SD card go. It's just a backup of the .android_secure folder from the SD card.

When I did a complete wipe I was able to boot into 2.2.1, but the baseband was unknown and the cellular radio did not work. We are missing a crutial step here, and we need to quit before one of us loses a phone. Someone more knowledgeable will step in and tell us what we are doing wrong.

Mine says baseband version 1 on 2.2.1, i've gone back and forth between the two and i'm not seeing anything that would help me aside from maybe doing a factory reset in 2.3.3 but i havent tried it

Almost a big leap forward. I'd like to go back to 2.2.1 as soon as someone figures this out.

I'm curious as to why you want to go back, i've heard a lot of people saying this, is it mainly because of the status bar?

The commando on 2.2.1 with all the bloatware removed runs very well with no lag, no stutter and no crashes. It seems to have better battery life too. The commando running 2.3.3 has some stutter and lag, and seems to use more battery. My experience had been that it has some force close issues with some applications that it did not have on 2.2.1. I actually prefer the status bar on 2.3.3, but other than that I see no improvement.

Others may have had different experiences and may think I am totally wrong. YMMV.

I know Spike already uploaded his 2.2.1 boot and system backup, but would it help if I did also? I was really looking forward to upgrading to 2.3.3 but since everyone seems to want to go back, maybe I should just stay put .

The problem is if the nandroid didn't come from your phone, it doesn't seem to have a recognizable baseband and the cellular radio doesn't work. No radio=no connectivity. I took my phone back to 2.2.1 and initially had a bootloop. When I did a full wipe it booted normally into 2.2.1, but there was no signal in an area that normally has excellent signal and was working just moments before. So until someone helps us figure out how to work around this we are stuck.

Rjglenn, I'm not at my computer but if you feel like searching around for a way to explore the md5 file, maybe there is an identifier for baseband or serial number? Just trying to brainstorm some ideas that might help make progress. I'll start looking when I get home. Thanks again for the help guys

Looking at other threads I found one about flashing an "amss.mbn" file to fix the "baseband unkown" problem, and another thread about flashing the radio.zip file (contains radio.img) after loading a custom rom. Both threads may be related to our problem:
Please Help... Cant still figure out - Android @ MoDaCo
and
Radio_Update - android-roms - How To: Install a Radio Update. - Android ROMs will host updates to the OS both Custom and Offical. - Google Project Hosting

Maybe we need to re-flash a baseband file? (just brainstorming too, Spike)

While I prefer the 2.2.1 status bar, I otherwise agree with what rjglenn said.
2.2.1 was much faster, less laggy pretty much all the time, and had less force-closes. It also booted faster. Where I normally had 40%+ battery at the end of the day with 2.2.1 after removing apps, I am often at 20% or less with 2.3.3 after cleaning it up as much as I could. It's almost like someone added an app to 2.3.3 that ensures no improvement if you clean up the useless stuff.

2.2.1 was the high mark for me.

Thank you both for trying to make this work!

Flashing a radio from another model phone will have undesireable results (brick) and will probably not be correctable. DO NOT DO IT.

I do not have the technical knowledge to be able to extract the baseband out of the phone and then package it up into a flashable update.

This is a classic example of the Peter Principal:

"A man will rise to the height of his own incompetence and then peter out"

I've petered out...

I wasn't suggesting we use another model phone's baseband to flash, I agree that would be a bad idea. Until someone less technically challenged than I am stumbles onto our thread, I think I'll go create a dual boot CM7 SD card for my Nook Color which should be arriving in a day or two .

For anyone who's reading and has been hesitant to install the recovery that GNM has developed for us, this is why you should have a recovery on your phone if you are planning to do any "work" on it. It's more than just being able to install ROMs, it's about being able to fix mistakes.



I tried this with command prompt... I did the following:
cd "C:|Program Files\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools"
redirected to C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools>adb wait-for-device reboot recovery

attached copy of screen print

the phone boots to the verizon intiating and nothing further.

adb status window show that it is [2j [2HAndroid Degug Bridge

were do i get the GNW recovery

You have to have the recovery installed on the phone to be able to boot into it. Follow the first post on this thread to CNM's post area. On that thread you will find instructions and links to download the needed files.

When I did a full wipe it booted normally into 2.2.1, but there was no signal in an area that normally has excellent signal and was working just moments before. So until someone helps us figure out how to work around this we are stuck.
Ok, so today I spent several hours playing with 2.3.3 and could not get a radio signal, so I recovered my 2.2.1 nandroid backup and all was well again. I decided to try Spike's 2.2.1 backup and it works fine also. So, it appears that it doesn't matter which phone the nandroid came from, the problem is going from one version to another. I wish we knew where the settings for the baseband are located.

Spike, just FYI, my 2.2.1 nandroid has live wallpapers, yours has some cool wallpapers I never saw before, but I didn't see any live ones. My backup also has all the bloatware restored.

I deleted my stock live wallpapers with titanium so i'm assuming thats why haha but its good to know that nandroids arent for just single phones. also when i flashed rjglenn's 2.3.3 i had several of his apps but i'm sure it wasnt all of them. so i'm assuming they are just apps that start on boot since they were in the boot file or he converted those to system apps. just little things i'm noticing as i learn. Still waiting for someone who knows what theyre talking about to come school us

Q: if I ever have to unroot and return my phone to Verizon to be replaced under warranty, how do I go back to stock recovery?

Just a guess, change the name of the installed-recovery.bak back to installed-recovery.sh and that should run a script that overwrites the GNM recovery with the stock one on reboot. I do not know if it will work and I'd be scared to death to try it.

No it won't work in reverse. The recovery-from-boot.p patch it calls will fail. You did dump your stock recovery right? If not and you used my installer script that script of mine dumped it for you.

Didn't the installer save it as another file, and the instructions said to move that file or it will get over written?

I've been lurking and studying up on this recovery. I've had my phone for about a month, but have been very conservative with monkeying with the phone rooting and debloating. The phone rebooted by itself twice last night, and tonight when I went to send a text message it just shut down. Now all it will do is vibrate when I try to turn it on. No video or audio. Verizon is sending a replacement under warranty. I assume that recovery would not help me, even if I had installed it, since the phone won't turn on. Am I wrong?

I was just becoming happy and comfortable with how I had the phone configured and set up. Bummer.

My first commando did that, rebooted and shut down at random. I'm on my second replacement device.

Recovery installed successfully! Thank you GNM! After bricking two commandos ( one while trying to install joneidy's 2.2.1 recovery) I was very leery to try this. Used the script & it was easy as 1-2-3! Made a Nandroid backup so now MAYBE I can recover next time I "f" something up. I appreciate all your work and look forward to a custom ROM to play with.

Dsixda rom kitchen. On the 2.21 to 2.3.3 backups the radio/amss was updated by casio for 2.3 which is causing the no baseband issue when restoring 2.2 or vice versa. There is no current way to backup or flash a ams s/radio.img for this device nor any casio android product service tool available to flash a full firmware.

Exclamation Almost there but need help!!!!

I am so happy to finally see a working, albeit not for me quite yet, recovery for my casio commando. I ran the script in the terminal emulator wit success however, my issue is that it runs the script and reboots my phone into recovery, its still just the triangle with droid and exclamation mark. Im in debugging mode and I plugged in my phone after which I turned usb to "charge only" and yet I am baffled. I tried this 5 times with no success other than the script ran and rebooted. Please help asap as I would love to have this on my phone. Thanks!!!!

Default Still need help!

I think I might have found the issue as to why the recovery isnt working. When I run the script a line pops up stating that there isnt a file "recovery.img" to be found. I thought this before. When i download the .zip for the commando recovery the only files that came with it were as follows: Readme, busybox, dump-recovery.img, dump-image, flash_image, reboot, and recoveryflash.sh. Again, there isnt a "recovery.img" file in the zip and I think that is the issue. Please help if you can! Thanks
