Default Amon_RA 1.6.2 Custom Recovery: trackball not required!

Okay guys, we've seen lots of reports of people whose Erises (Erii?) have or are starting to have trackball issues and are unable to properly navigate through Amon_RA's custom recovery. Well, I've been trying to figure-out how to tweak Amon_RA's custom recovery to work without relying on the trackball.

Anyway, after a lot of thrashing about, and with some sage guidance from Amon_RA, I was able to modify and recompile Amon_RA's 1.6.2 Eris custom recovery to allow an alternate set of keys to be used in lieu of having / needing to use the trackball--not just for scrolling, but for selection / confirmation! I left-in the support for using the trackball so that it will work either way.

Here's the new, alternate key mappings:

Code:
volume-UP:  scroll-up (trackball scroll-up still works too)
 
green Call button: scroll-down (trackball scroll-down still works too)

red End/Power button: select / confirm (trackball-press still works too)
 
The volume-DOWN key, which is used to take you back to the prior
menu / screen, remains unchanged.
Here's a screenshot of the new version: recovery-RA-eris-v1.6.2-trackball-not-required.jpg

Notice the [trackball optional] (or [trackball not required]) text at the bottom of the screen under the "Build : RA-eris-v1.6.2" line that lets you know you are using the new, alternate version.

=================================================

Note / Edit: 20-November-2010: Click below to read the note:



=================================================

Disclaimer: Again, your mileage may vary, etc., etc. Use these custom recoveries at your own risk. I am not responsible for any bad things that might occur to your phone should you use these.

=================================================

Here are the download links to the trackball alternative custom recovery:

New ("1.7.1") version:

https://sites.google.com/site/scaryalienware/downloads/recovery-RA-eris-v1.6.2-trackball-optional.img

File size: 3,926,016 bytes
MD5 checksum: 3217768b831a3841180699942204762d

Old (original, "1.6.2") version:




Always (please!) verify the checksum of this file after you download and place it on your phone.

Please reference Amon_RA's thread over on XDA for additional details regarding this custom recovery:

[Recovery] [17-Mar-2010] RA-eris-v1.6.2 - xda-developers

--------------------------------------------------

Special thanks to:

Amon_RA: for creating this custom recovery and providing much needed guidance to allow me to tweak his code

Packetlss: for hosting the github and guiding me to Amon_RA

erisuser1: for his continued guidance, knowledge, and contributions to the Android community (especially the Eris folks)

Disclaimer: Use these custom recoveries at your own risk. As always, read carefully, be careful, and use caution when rooting and/or attempting anything discussed in this thread. I cannot be responsible for any "bad things" that might happen to your phone in the course of you using any of the information contained herein. I hate including something like this, but this is meant to give pause to any casual reader that isn't fully prepared for the consequences, intended or otherwise, related to rooting and installing a custom recovery.

----------------------------------------
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

Since there are a variety of states for phones to "accept" or have custom recovery installed on it, there are a few different scenarios for installing. For a better breakdown (and source ) of these different scenarios, please reference this post Amon_RA 1.6.2 Custom Recovery: trackball not required! that appears later in this same thread (thank you again, eu1!):

/========\
| SCENARIO 1| Stock/unrooted Eris phones:
\========/

For "stock", unrooted, HTC/VZW phones, can use erisuser1's Universal Eris Root for Dummies! method, use his thread's instructions but do the following steps after the section labeled Setting Things Up with a File Manager (i.e., after figure 18) and before the section labeled Rooting with Gscript Lite:

A. Download the recovery-RA-eris-v1.6.2-trackball-optional.img file from the link above, being sure to verify the file size and MD5 sum (listed above) and transfer it to your phone's /sdcard/gscript/tools directory (that was created by the time you get to figure 18). I recommend using the free AFV (Android File Verifier) app [shameless plug ] for checking a file's MD5 sum on your phone.

B. Use a file manager such as EStrongs File Explorer or Astro File Manager to navigate to the /sdcard/gscript/tools directory and rename the "recovery.img" file to "old-recovery.img".

C. Next, while you are still in the /sdcard/gscript/tools directory, rename the "recovery-RA-eris-v1.6.2-trackball-optional.img" file to "recovery.img".

D. Continue/resume the rooting process in eu1's thread from the section labeled Rooting with Gscript Lite. It should use the new, trackball optional custom recovery.

/========\
| SCENARIO 2| Partially rooted phones (process halted by wonky trackball):
\========/

This scenario covers phones that were "partially" rooted--i.e., the "Universal Dummies" or "1-click" method was used to root the phone, but a ROM could not be flashed because of a non-functioning trackball. If this is the case, you should be able to follow the steps indicated in Scenario 1 above.

If you were able to flash a ROM via some other means (i.e., ClockworkMod or manual flash via adb), then you can't use the Scenario 1 method above.

/========\
| SCENARIO 3| Rooted phone w/non-stock ROM & 1.6.2 Amon_RA Eris custom recovery installed:
\========/

This is for most folks that are already rooted and don't want to use their PCs and/or are not familiar with the Android SDK and using adb.

What you'll need:

A. Download and install the Gscript Lite app (don't run it yet):

https://market.android.com/details?id=nl.rogro.GScriptLite

B. Download or transfer the gscript-sa-171.zip file to your phone (we'll assume that you placed it in the /sdcard/download directory):

Here is the new "1.7.1" version (see notes above) that includes the "lost" Partition sdcard menu items:

https://sites.google.com/site/scaryalienware/downloads/gscript-sa-171.zip

MD5 sum of gscript-sa-171.zip: 2580f0c92f3e1e8acd9c8af1b5eae513
File size of gscript-sa-171.zip: 3,915,425 bytes

Here is the original ("1.6.2") version:




C. Extract the contents of the gscript-sa-171.zip file to your SD card:

Code:
Using Astro File Manager (free in the Market), let's move gscript-sa-171.zip 
from the /sdcard/download folder to /sdcard and extract its contents:
 
A. long-press the gscript-sa-171.zip file
B. select Edit
C. select Move
D. press the Up icon at in the tool bar at the top of the screen
   (this will navigate to the /sdcard directory)
E. finally, select the Paste icon in the tool bar at the top of the screen
F. long-press the gscript-sa-171.zip file and select Extract
G. select Extract To This Directory
H. let it do its extracting thing...and then exit Astro File Manager
Note: If you have to re-extract the gscript-sa-171.zip file (via Astro) and re-run the gscript-sa.sh script from Gscript, its probably a good idea to delete the gscript-sa script from inside Gscript (long-press the gscript-sa script name and select Delete).

*** Special Note for those using KaosFroyo ROMs ***




*** Special Note for CM7, GSB 2.8+ and other Gingerbread-based ROMs ***




D. Launch a new Gscript Lite app instance and do the following:

Code:
Launch a new Gscript Lite instance and:
 
A. press the soft menu button
B. select Add script option (lower left)
C. press the Load file button
D. select the gscript-sa.sh script
E. leave the Needs SU? checkbox checked (you need root for the flash to work)
F. press the Save button (lower left)
G. you'll now be returned to the main Gscript Lite menu and you should
   see gscript-sa available at the bottom of the list of scripts
H. to run the script, short-press the gscript-sa script name
I. you should be prompted by the SuperUser whitelist app to allow
   the Gscript program to run the /system/bin/sh as root (select Allow)
The screens should look like this:

gscript-sa main.JPG gscript-sa su request.JPG gscript-sa flash successful.jpg
If you are not rooted, didn't enable the Needs SU? checkbox, or there's a problem flashing the custom recovery image, you'll see something like this:
gscript-sa not-run-as-root.jpg

/========\
| SCENARIO 4| Old-school (already rooted; Android SDK/adb-familiar):
\========/

If you have a rooted phone, have the Android SDK installed, and are proficient / knowledgeable about using adb and flash_image, then you can follow these steps (note: I am purposely omitting some details that those familiar with this process should not need--if you need it, you probably shouldn't be using this):

Via flash_image through adb

A. Download the new (1.7.1) recovery-RA-eris-v1.6.2-trackball-optional.img file or the old (1.6.2) recovery-RA-eris-v1.6.2-trackball-not-required.img file from one of the links above, being sure to verify the file size and MD5 sum (listed above) and transfer it to your Android SDK's tools directory.

B. Use adb to push the new custom recovery over to your phone's /sdcard:

Code:
adb push recovery-RA-eris-v1.6.2-trackball-optional.img /sdcard/
C. Wait/pause 5 seconds to allow the push/transfer to complete (this data transfer actually occurs in the background via the adb service on your PC that talks to the adb daemon on your phone)

D. Now, flash the updated custom recovery image to your phone:

Code:
adb shell flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-RA-eris-v1.6.2-trackball-optional.img
E. Reboot into recovery to enjoy your new trackball-optional custom recovery!

Via fastboot (note: requires S-OFF bootloader)

Also, LexusBrian400 pointed-out in this post: Amon_RA 1.6.2 Custom Recovery: trackball not required! that you can also flash the recovery using the fastboot utility (if you have it):

Note: a quick word of caution, courtesy of erisuser1 and excerpted (verbatim) from this post: Visual Example: The PB00IMG.ZIP update method:

If you ever use fastboot to flash things to the phone, be very very careful about md5 checksums and so forth - the one thing which is nice about the signing methodology used with ROMs and Amon_RA is that it makes it impossible to flash a corrupted ROM file - but when flashing with fastboot, no protection is provided for you, so you need to be damn sure you are working with correct and unmangled files.

1. Make sure your USB cable is plugged-in between your phone and your PC.

2. From a powered-off state, boot your phone into FASTBOOT USB mode by simultaneously pressing the green CALL and the red END/PWR buttons. This should take you into the FASTBOOT menu/screen. Note: if you don't have the USB cable plugged-in, the "FASTBOOT USB" (white text w/red background) will simply show "FASTBOOT".

3. Place the alternate custom recovery image you wish to flash in the Android SDK's tools directory.

4. Next, from your Android SDK's tools directory, flash the alternate custom recovery:

Code:
fastboot flash recovery recovery-RA-eris-v1.6.2-trackball-optional.img
5. Here's what it will look like from the Windows (DOS) Prompt:

Code:
d:\android-sdk-windows\tools>fastboot flash recovery recovery-RA-eris-v1.6.2-trackball-optional.img
  sending 'recovery' (3834 KB)... OKAY [  0.844s]
            writing 'recovery'... OKAY [  1.390s]
finished. total time: 2.236s
d:\android-sdk-windows\tools>
6. After the flash, press the volume-DOWN key to enter HBOOT. From HBOOT, press volume-UP to enter your shiny-new custom recovery.

/========\
| SCENARIO 5| jcase's 1-click app, now with trackball-optional custom recovery:
\========/

I finally received permission from jcase to re-pack his Eris 1-click app to include the trackball-optional recovery. This version is identical to his original--I simply replaced the file containing the original Amon_RA custom recovery with the trackball-optional version.

You can use this version to root or re-root a stock Sense Eris (which should also include those running Sense-based ROMs such as xtrSENSE, and some of the very old, original Eris ROMs). If you are already rooted, you don't need to re-root (i.e., you don't need to re-flash the rootme.zip file), you just need to re-run the app as you normally would in order to get the special trackball-optional Amon_RA custom recovery installed.

I also think that this app will work if you already have the original Amon_RA custom recovery installed and you need to replace it with the trackball-optional one.

https://sites.google.com/site/scaryalienware/downloads/one-click-tbo.apk

MD5 sum: 15763b51cf707c027cc73bc117e1fc39

I won't repeat the installation instructions here, but instead will point you towards both of jcase's threads (here at AF and over at XDA):

Universal 1 Click Eris Root App Apk - No PCs, No Scripts Needed, EASY - xda-developers

Universal 1 Click Eris App Apk - No PCs, No Scripts Needed, EASY

If you are simply replacing your custom recovery with the trackball-optional one, then you basically just run steps 1-3.

I would also urge you to honor the spirit of jcase's threads regarding donations to help-out those less fortunate. All credit to jcase and his team for creating this app that has helped so many people.

No problem ...and thank you too for all that you do around here for all of the Eris folks!

I'm just imagining the time when we'll have a cascade of folks whose trackballs have gone kaput and they will give up root or upgrade to a new phone when they don't have to.

This was a fun and pretty challenging project...I've learned more than I ever expected to....

I hope to finish getting this coded and tested tonight or tomorrow...the testing cycle is a bit of a challenge since I can only actually test by flashing a new recovery.

Cheers!

Default we don't need no stinkin' trackball :)

All,

I've updated the first post above with information about the changes I've tested and got working tonight.

I've got this working:

- an alternative to the trackball scroll-up (volume-UP)

- an alternative to trackball scroll-down (green Call button)

- an alternative to trackball-press select/confirm (red End/Power button)

I was working with hoban_eris over at XDA to try to include a patch to the base code to allow for file selection to occur from places other than the /sdcard path. Unfortunately, we've got a version mis-match or something and we're having trouble getting this in. This doesn't mean that I will stop working on this, mind you... I can still try to (and might have to) incorporate it manually (instead of a code merge).

I'll try to finish documenting and posting this (hopefully) by tomorrow evening. If you really can't wait, shoot me a PM and I can email you the new custom recovery image (its pretty sweet, I must say ).

Cheers!

Default link is up--new version is ready for download

Okay...the new version is ready for download (link provided in the first post above).

This version should operate identically to Amon_RA's original 1.6.2 Eris custom recovery, except that three new, alternate buttons/keys are supported for menu navigation and selection/prompt confirmation (i.e., as an alternative to using the trackball -- which is still supported for those with working trackballs). See details above.

I have not yet written-up instructions for installing this on your phone. Many of you had your custom recovery automatically installed via the jcase's 1-click or erisuser1's universal root methods, so you did not have to mess-around with installing the Android SDK or having to use adb (or encountering issues regarding USB drivers).

One step at a time...

Thanks and enjoy!

Ya, I used the universal 1-click root method so this is a little over my head. Still learning.. But tweaking Amon's is AMAZING! Just months ago, I couldn't root because I had a bum trackball. I did finally get a refurb phone from Verizon. So this would've been terrific. Now, if I can learn how to put it on my phone in case my trackball ever goes kaput again, that will be something. Like I said, I'm still learning..

You are very welcome! (now, you won't have to go back to ClockworkMod ).

Yeah, I won't say it was easy because there was so much that I had to learn and figure-out (the journey was very educational ), but I got the missing pieces of the puzzle (thanks to Amon_RA) on Sunday and was very excited.

I'll try to figure-out something for making flashing this a little less painful.

Cheers!

We can probably work something up from the Rooting for Dummy's gscripts procedures?

I was thinking along these same lines too...I was wanting to have eu1 weigh-in on things before suggesting this since he's The Man regarding the example thread re. this (he might want to simply make an alternative script to reference the new file?) and I'm sure he will have some good ideas re. this.

I also do have jcase's 1-click root app project (that he kindly shared with me) that could be modified, but I would have to discuss this with him since its his baby and I don't want to hijack his app or methodology.

I'm still trying to catch my breath from a busy weekend trying to get this all done (I didn't get my "aha!" moment until mid Sunday afternoon when Amon_RA kindly replied to my email with the information that made me understand how all the pieces fit together (it makes sense now, of course )). This was after being up until 5 AM due to having to do some DST tasks for work. Then, I was up late Sunday night trying stuff when I finally got things to start working. I was a little excited .

In the mean time, I guess I could simply republish the manual, SDK/adb method for folks that might need it? What do you think?

I know that EU1 is away, so that's why I suggested one of us could do it for now. That said, it can definitely wait. That said, I think it might be useful to work up a single script that can install the new recovery for everybody who already has root and the existing Amon's but who have trackball problems.

I think showing the "old" way is just fine, but still requires people to install the SDK and all of that stuff and it may be better to avoid that. I'm figuring that anybody who can install the SDK without help can manage getting the new recovery installed without help as well...

I don't think that I'll get time for this until tomorrow night; maybe tonight, though.

Lol, I fixed my post where I quoted your reply .

Just to throw more fuel onto the fire is the set of changes that hoban_eris suggested/provided that he got from Koush's ClockworkMod recovery that would allow custom recovery to navigate to any directory to search for files to flash instead of requiring that they be put in the top-level of the /sdcard. It'll take me some time to try to incorporate this, but will yield yet another version of this recovery (but a good problem to have, eh?).

Ooo! That's a good link for an excellent example for flashing recovery--I looked for something like this last night, but found way too many examples. The one you posted is pretty good.

So much to do, so little time! [and I still haven't gotten time to watch Monday night's espisode of "House" ]

Cheers!

doogald,

I spent a little time Wednesday night looking at eu1's Gscript scripts used in his Universal Root thread regarding evaluating methods for people to flash an alternate (new) custom recovery. It got me thinking about the scope of creating a method for people to easily "update" their custom recovery.

Since the custom recovery is typically installed as an integral part of the rooting process, this almost makes developing a "method" equivalent to duplicating the efforts aleady in-place (by eu1, jcase, surgeon0214, old-school method, etc).

I see a couple of different scenarios / issues to keep in mind:

1. method (SDK/adb/USB, Gscript, custom app, other)

Clearly, a custom, 1-click type app would be most desireable with an eu1-like Gscript method very close behind. Those with the knowledge and skill using the Android SDK/adb.exe and a USB connection are already set.

2. current root state (unrooted, root w/S-ON HBOOT, root w/S-OFF HBOOT)

I'm unclear as to whether the eu1's or jcase's root method (using wag3slav3's exploit) that's been already used on a phone is relevant to how next to proceed. I mention this because I can simply use the flash_image utility to re-flash my custom recovery without having to tweak the security of the mtd1 partition like the root-leak methods do...(I suspect that this is directly related to whether or not one has an S-OFF HBOOT--which is what I have).

If the S-ON HBOOT phones still need to re-do the mid.txt symlink exploit each time to resecure mdt1, then they would basically need to re-do all of the rooting steps up to just the installation of the custom recovery.

If the S-ON HBOOT phones can simply use the flash_image utility, it should be fairly straightforward to either build a simpler (one-step) Gscript script (or even an Android app) to do this.

I rooted the old-school way, so I have an S-OFF HBOOT and am a little leery of reverting to S-ON, but I'm betting eu1 (or maybe yourself) can very easily and eloquently clear-up the confusion. Any ideas?

Thanks and cheers!

Look out, St. Jude!

There's a new Patron Saint of Lost Causes in town - his name is scary_alien!

But seriously - nice work; the trackball-challenged Eris owners will be forever in your debt.


As far as the installation of your custom patch of Amon_RA goes,

(1) For people with "stock" HTC/VZW phones, merely replacing the "recovery.img" file in the gscript/Dummies method (with your version of the recovery) would get it installed. I haven't unpacked jcase's OneClick app to see if it stores the recovery.img file as a resource - but if so, you could simply replace it with yours and resign... with permission of jcase and his crew, of course.

(2) For people with previously rooted phones (Dummies or One-Click), but still with a stock HTC O/S, the same thing applies - a modified version of Dummies or One-Click will work to install your version of Amon_RA's custom recovery. The dependencies of those rooting methods are primarily upon the "init.rc" script in the stock boot partition (boot.img) - so you can't "reroot" (e.g. with OneClick) with any old ROM, but if you still have a "stock" OS and boot partition, you can "re-root". Obviously, this case would only apply to those folks that performed the initial process of rooting using either method, and then gave up when they discovered that they had a trackball that Amon_RA was not happy with.

(3) The third case - a rooted phone with a non-stock ROM and the original v1.6.2 Amon_RA (for the Eris) installed, you could simply create a gscript method using "flash_image" as you suggest. The script would need to run as root under the OS, but there's no problem doing that with a rooted phone, right?

As to your question about /dev/mtd/mtd1 - it is a volatile file system that is recreated on each boot, but also you wouldn't need to "chmod" it if you are already running as root - the whole symlink/chmod nonsense happens during the rooting exploit so that an unprivileged user can write a file to /dev/mtd/mtd1. (The symlink is created at /data/local/rights/mid.txt that points at /dev/mtd/mtd1 because it is known that a "chmod 777 /data/local/rights/mid.txt" command happens in the stock boot image's "init.rc" file - and that process is running as root).



cheers

eu1

Default thank you!

eu1,

Welcome back from your brief hiatus and thank you very much for the kind words--I very much appreciate them.

I also appreciate you (yet again ) lifting the fog on (at least my) confusion regarding what is might take to make this more widely available to those that might want or need it. That helped me a lot.

You are correct about jcase's 1-click app: it does indeed include a copy of Amon_RA's 1.6.2 recovery.img. I have not yet contacted jcase regarding tweaking his app since I am actively working on a few additional tweaks and I didn't want to bother him prematurely. His app has really been education for me, not just in helping me create the AFV app, but in looking at it again this week I learned some things I didn't know before--pretty cool, jcase!

I also didn't want to hold-off (releasing the initial version) with the changes I'm working on now, since I wanted to make my first version with the trackball alternative keys available to those that needed it (I've already heard from a few happy users of this new version).

I'll try to write-up some installation instructions that cover the above scenarios that you so kindly outlined:

For #1, I'll contact jcase (hopefully soon) and see what we can do.

For #2, if you don't mind, I can simply reference your Universal thread and provide instructions on how / when to replace the recovery.img that comes with your gscript.zip file (i.e., after figure 18, replace recovery.img with a new one).

For #3, like you indicated, it should be fairly-straightforward to create a Gscript package to do the flash_image thingy . I haven't played too much with Gscript, but this should be a fun thing to do and your examples will certainly make this a much easier task.

Thank you again! Cheers!

I'm not familiar with Droid Explorer...if it "knows" about the Eris and you can/get to specify the custom recovery .img file, you should be able to.

I'll have to check in to this...

I'm going to start writing-up the installation instructions this evening...

Can you tell me how you rooted? I might be able to get you going with this if you really need it...

Cheers!

edit: okay, now I remember...Droid Explorer is a PC-based tool...never used it, but I'll look over how it might fit into this...thanks!

Aha! I thought you might just be trying to be helpful . I appreciate that.

After I saw your reply, I did a quick Google search and realized that I had heard of the app before. I might try downloading and installing it to see if this might be easier for people to use.

Thanks!

Yeah, the install doesn't scare me...although if you have to install the Android SDK anyway for D.E. (makes sense that it uses this as its underlying means of communication), then you're pretty close to being able to issue adb commands manually [and wanting or being able to use a PC].

I'll be posting stuff that should also work from people's phones too without the need for the PC (at least, that's that plan ).

Cheers!

Default Added Installation Instructions to the OP

All,

Sorry this took me so long, but I've finally added the installation instructions to the top post above.

As you can see, there are four scenarios discussed for the when and how to install this recovery. I've used erisuser1's Gscript on-phone installation method for already rooted users that want or need to install this tweaked recovery to their phones. I will be contacting jcase to see whether or not we can come up with a one-click type app (similar to his 1-click root app) for flashing this recovery (no promises regarding the outcome of this since its his proprietary app).

Anyway, let me know if you see anything wonky or have questions / issues in the above instructions.

By the way, big props again to erisuser1--it took me quite a while to tweak/test/debug/document the Gscript method mentioned above, and I had a template/example to reference! It gave me a new appreciation for the amount of work and effort he put into his Universal Eris Root for Dummies! method and the care, time, and excellence he puts in all of his posts.

Cheers!

Thank you so much!!!! (even though it's super freaking late lol) I have to flash a different rom, because the one i'm using (taintedvanilla_1.4) crapped out, and now no one can hear me when i call. and i was like "oh well, on to EE4.0" then i booted in recovery, and my trackball didn't move. i was extremely upset. but now it's fixed...i hope. my phone has been in the 3 little skating guys for awhile now...

Glad it was helpful to you...happy to have helped.

We don't see too many references to Evil Eris anymore since there's been so many new custom ROMs built since then (EE was one of the early "choice" / popular ROMs). Goo d luck!

Yeah, sorry about that... I added the "root check" to help ensure that only rooted phones were trying to use this--and this was before I really tested with Gscript and realized that the script itself would require su to run (i.e., for the flash_image command).

I also assumed that all custom ROMs would put their su programs in /system/bin/su, but I'm guessing that Nonsensikal and others don't, eh? [can you tell me where Nonsensikal does store theirs? no biggie if you can't].

I'll remove that check from the script... You can probably edit the Gscript script by long-pressing in the main menu and selecting Edit and changing the script to point to the correct location for su or removing that check all together.

Also, if you give me a few minutes, I'll tweak the gscript-sa.zip and republish it so you can re-download...

Thanks!

Okay, I downloaded it, removed the su/root check and re-uploaded it. I'll publish its MD5 sum in a little bit.

Sorry for the inconvenience... Let me know how it goes...

Cheers!

This time, I get this error:

If you are not rooted, didn't enable the Needs SU? checkbox, or there's a problem flashing the custom recovery image, you'll see something like this:


And then below that it says /sqlite_stmt_journals/flash_image:not found.

Thanks for your help in advance!

That would be /system/xbin/su

In the Gscript output that it produces when it runs, does it show an error after the line:

Info: installing/securing flash_image ?

(this is the point where the script copies the flash_image file from the /sdcard/gscript/tools directory to your phone's /sqlite_stmt_journals/flash_image location).

Did you re-do all of the steps from the beginning? I'm thinking also that Gscript might be holding-on to the old script, so make sure you long-press and delete the gscript-sa script in Gscript's main menu when you first/re-launch it before you try to load the new version. I'm still a little new to this Gscript tool, so you might be encountering some of its eccentricities that I haven't quite accounted for.

If you are still having issues, I'll be back home (where my Eris is sleeping ) in about an hour and a half and I'll be able to help debug this a little more deeply.

Ok, I deleted everything from before including Gscript Lite and started fresh. After reloading the app and downloading and extracting your .zip to the root of my sdcard, I ran the script. Below is what my screen looks like (I don't know how to take screenshots).

create /sqlite_stmt_journals/flash_image: directory nonexistent
stderr:
stderr: chmod: /sqlite_stmt_journals/flash_image: No such file or directory
stderr:
stderr:/sqlite_stmt_journals/flash_image:not found
stderr:
stderr:

I'm assuming that it is looking for a folder or location that is not found in Nonsensikal, but that's just my guess.

If you come up with anything, let me know and I'll try it again. I would rather have another option of getting through Amon_ra's than the trackball because I think my wife's trackball is about to go on the fritz.

Thanks for all the help.

tproctor,

You might be on to something! (i.e., that maybe the /sqlite_stmt_journals directory does not exist in all ROMs (but certainly does in a stock ROM)).

Like I said, I used the venerable eu1's root_part2.sh script as my template and tried not to deviate more than necessary and I assumed he had a very good reason for using this directory as the launching-pad for the flash_image program.

Let me get home and re-test the script using the /sdcard/gscript/tools folder for running the flash_image file from and I'll let you know.

Thank you again for being my beta tester on this...others yet to come will sing your name in song after all of this is fixed .

I'll get back to you soon-ish.

I'm just glad to help out. I did look through the folders using Estrongs and didn't see that folder name anywhere. I'll check back in when I get off work in a couple of hours and see how it's going.

Thanks again.

Default Should be back in business now ;)

Okay, I've tweaked the Scenario 3 Gscript script some:

1. I now check for both /system/bin/su and /system/xbin/su, but I don't exit the script if they are not found (this is just a diagnostic tool for debugging)

2. I've moved from using the /sqlite_stmt_journals directory to temporarily house the flash_image program to /data/data/gscript-sa This should make the script work on all ROMs (crossing fingers ).

3. I've re-uploaded the new version and it is now available for download. The published MD5 sum and file size have been updated.

4. I've also updated the screenshots to reflect the display changes made in the script.

5. If you have to re-extract the gscript-sa.zip file (via Astro) and re-run the gscript-sa.sh script from Gscript, its probably a good idea to

a) delete the gscript-sa script from inside Gscript (long-press the gscript-sa script name and select Delete)

b) delete (via Astro) the gscript-sa.sh file from the /sdcard/gscript directory before re-extracting it (this is probably unnecessary, but I'm still learning how Gscript behaves)

I think that's it...thanks to tproctor for his patience and doogald (as always) for being there.

Let me know how things go and if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions.

Cheers!

Default tweaked scenario 3 Gscript

tproctor,

I spent some more time this evening tweaking the script and I've come up with a newer version that I'm going to package-up with the .zip file, but I wanted to make it available to you if needed (you shouldn't though, given the changes I made from earlier this evening). Anyway, this new version will check to see if the /sqlite_stmt_journals directory exists and then use it if it does. If it does not exist, it wil then try to use the /data/data/gscript-sa directory for housing the flash_image file.

I've also added a log file feature to the script so that it will record what is going on when the script is run to the file /sdcard/gscript/tools/logfile.txt.

Anyway, function-wise, it should be identical to the original and second version in that it tries to flash the trackball-optional custom recovery image to your phone.

Here's the new script: gscript-sa.sh.txt If you need to use it, you'll have to remove the .txt suffix from it and copy/move it to the /sdcard/gscript directory. When re-extracting the .zip or updating/replacing a Gscript file, make sure you manually delete the script from the list of scripts shown on the main Gscript screen (and then re-add / load / save).

Cheers!

We don't see too many references to Evil Eris anymore since there's been so many new custom ROMs built since then (EE was one of the early "choice" / popular ROMs). Goo d luck!
Well. back with a status report. my phone WILL NOT boot into recovery. i have done it: the one-click way, Eris user1's way (including your non trackball solution), i've tried to go through HBOOT, FASTBOOT, and the regular boot, and the thing will not get past those 3 little green men. I'm wholesomely upset because now my phone has been rendered little more than a ipod touch that txts...any help? i'm not a complete starter at all this stuff, but i'm still confused about the ABD shell, and driver situations and all the stuff down that path of root. i need help, or advice, or something...

SA,
Sorry I didn't get back to ya last night, but here's my results:

Tried it on my phone and got a bunch of write errors. I thought I saw where it said Script Loaded so I tried rebooting into recovery. It hung at the skateboard screen and required a battery pull. Instead of just rebooting though, I booted into fastboot (Vol -/answer/end) and tried getting into recovery from there with no luck. Still stuck on the skateboards. So, battery pull again and reboot to see if phone still works and it came right up. I went straight to Gscript, deleted the gscript-sa, re-added the script, and re-ran it. When it got done, it was successful!!!! I tested it and everything worked perfectly. Now I don't need my trackball.

Since everything ended up working on my phone, I decided I'd try my wife's phone (Nonsensikal v9.5) since she wasn't using it. I downloaded the file, got Gscript from the market and badaboom, badabang success!! Works like a champ first time.

Thanks for doing this for everyone and thanks for putting up with me while I tried to get it on my phone!!

Can you boot your phone up? If so, I would do Scenario 3. If you have the gscript-sa zip and folder on your sdcard, I would delete it and reload it. I would even delete the Gscript app and reload it too. Just get a fresh start.

Okay, I'm just a little confused... So, you were rooted with Tainted Vanilla 1.4, had the silent-call issue, and tried to flash Evil Eris 4.0 and discovered you had trackball problems.

You then did install the trackball-optional recovery and flash EE4.0 and encountered the 3 skateboarding androids? (implying that you are still running Tainted Vanilla 1.4 and you are able to boot normally?). Does this sound right? [By the way, if you were able to flash EE4.0 using recovery, did you do a Wipe Data/Factory reset before doing the flash?].

If you are able to boot normally into Tainted Vanilla, why don't you try the scenario 3 method like tproctor suggested. Then, if the script says that it successfully installed the custom recovery, power down your phone and then boot into recovery this way:

From the phone being in a powered-off state, press volume-DOWN and the end/power button at the same time. This should take you to the HBOOT menu and give you the option to press the volume-UP toggle to enter recovery. Reference this post re. this:

Rooting and custom ROM questions...

One last thing... There are several ROMs out there that have the July 2010 2.1 OTA updates from VZW that seem to have fixed the silent-call issue you were having. I don't know that EE4.0 has this included, but certainly a ROM like xtrSense does (several others do too, but xtrSense is highly regarded).

Let us know.

ok. So i had some call issues. decided that a different rom, or just a factory reset even, would fix the problem. i go on my merry little way, and turn off my phone (before any effort to re-root) once off, i press END+VOL UP and it does actually get to the recovery screen. i'm like "oh great! just gotta do th....what?!?!"

the trackball didn't work...so figuring my root code went bad, i downloaded the eris 1 click to root program. did that stuff. tried recovery mode again (END+VOL UP)...trackball still didn't work, but it still was a ble to reach the green/black at this point.
so after crying for 3 hrs and eating 3 pints of icecream to the lifetime channel, i searched the internet, and found your trackball-optional mod/patch or whatever you deem necessary to call it. i scrolled through scenario 3, went through the steps, and turned my phone off. turned on, while holding END+VOL UP but it never passed the skateboards.

so i did a large number of battery pulls, each time alternating between recovery mode presses END+VOL UP, and just a regular boot (END) the regular boot was uneffected, and works fine (minus the calls of course). but the status of the recovery boot never changed.

I thought maybe it was considered a impartial root, because i was never able to flash the "rootme.zip" file. soooo i scrolled to Scenario 2. then realized that's Scenario 1. so i did those steps. and incorporated all the necessary files. renamed the two .img files, ran gscript lite. did all that.

took a deep breath of relief...turned my phone off. turned on with END+VOL UP, and the screen was STILL stuck at the skateboards. i left it at that very same screen all night, and went to sleep. woke up, and my phone was off.

in a desperate cry of help, i read through the comments, and found the HBOOT and FASTBOOT methods. i first tried SEND/CALL+END and pressed the necessary buttons to get to recovery...screen hit the skateboards, and didn't change. then i tried END+VOL-DOWN, and went through those buttons and same thing. skateboards and nothing. (throughout this whole process, i'm still on tainted vanilla, and never was even able to get to EE4.0. and the reg boot still works ok.) sooo. that's my life's story. need anything else?

Wow, you are nothing if not persistent .

I am rather at a loss...

Just one clarification about the skateboard android guys: there are skateboard androids that show up at the bottom of the FASTBOOT screen and the HBOOT screen, but you are talking about the ones that show up in the middle of the screen when either booting into recovery (or trying to) or booting normally, right? (that's where its hanging, right).

One other thought: did you verify the size and MD5 sum of the files that you downloaded (specifically, the recovery-RA-eris-v1.6.2-trackball-not-required.img)? Perhaps you have a bad / partial recovery image and that's why it won't boot into recovery... Its sounds like you know of every which way to boot into recovery, so that's why I'm thinking you have a bad recovery image.

You could try scenario 3, being careful to double-check the MD5 checksums of the files as indicated above.

Can you try this? I've done it about 25 times over the last several nights and its pretty quick. Just take your time and let us know.

Your right about the skateboards at the middle of the screen. The ones at the bottom load fine. Your turn to clarify. After all your writing and modding of your zip file. What is the md5 checksum? And what program do I need to check it? You've probably stated it more than once
