i bought a phone stocked with EE14, i rooted it, then installed shabbymod 0.9, then i installed CWM (i did have a few issues installing CWM, but i was able to fix it enough to get everything running)

ever since then, whenever i go into recovery, no matter what you do next, once your choose reboot into system now, it always reboots you right back into recovery, once you choose reboot into system the 2ND time it will boot you into the system, and everything else seems to work ok

maybe i should reinstall CWM? and see if that clears it up?

does CWM take up space for internal memory?
and also backups take up sd memory right?
so more backups you have the less memory in your sdcard you're gonna have?

:UPDATE:
If you have taken the EE14 official update you need to remove /system/ect/intall-recovery.sh
If you do not remove this file the stock recovery gets flashed back when phone is rebooted
I made a zip file that needs to be flashed from CWM as soon as CWM is installed, so you have to go into CWM as soon as Odin resets the phone, with out letting the phone boot up, a link to the fix is below
i just noticed this little gem, it turns out i still have install-recovery.sh on my phone, yet it doesn't get the stock recovery flashed back when i reboot (strange)

but maybe THAT is the reason, why i always have to double reboot??

i tried using File Explorer to delete that file but it doesn't work, do i need another app or special settings to accomplish this? (a free app hopefully)

I used ES File Explorer.

This is how i was able to delet it.

so more backups you have the less memory in your sdcard you're gonna have?
if you want you can move the backups to your computer, using the cable provided your sd card is read as another drive on your computer and you can just leave one, on your sd card. and if you feel like changing to a different one you can just move that to the sd card then boot into cwm and flash it.

cwm does not take up user space. recovery on the phone has its own reserved memory which we can not access except by using odin to put cwm on.

btw for the nooby noobs #12 should say "install zip from sdcard" not "flash zip"

so after removing that /intall-recovery.sh file it now only takes 1 reboot from recovery when you get into recovery via vol up method

however anytime you use a software recovery such as with quick boot or ACS updater, it still requires 2 reboots??

i've run out of ideas, maybe i glitched my phone during one of the installs??

right after i removed that /intall-recovery.sh file i rebooted to see what would happen, and it got stuck in the infinite droid boot ani (just like the first time i installed CWM) wiped factory/cache and rebooted and back to "normal"

and just a final thing i noticed, (since i'm just blindly guessing) during the install on step 11. where you say go into vol up recovery mode,(i start holding vol up + power) it will boot into the the first two screens 1. samsung.com screen then 2. samsung prevail screen, (meanwhile i'm still holding vol up) then it will reboot again 1. samsung.com + 2. samsung prevail THEN it will open the CWM

i corrected step 12 thanks for pointing that out.


those programs like acs updater are designed for cmw 3 and when they send the phone into recovery they probay script it so it reboots in to recovery after what ever it just installed finishes

you can test this to see what happens

on a booted phone that has adb debugging enabled and is connected to a computer that has adb.exe

perform this command

adb reboot recovery

phone should go into cwm, then do nothing but choose reboot system now, and let me know what happens

i think that major problems with that, is that it is a gsm based phone
and we have cdma so all the drivers would be different. i am not sure if the prevail froyo drivers would work on gingerbread, and I am pretty sure samsung wont give them to us

our best hope is if a samsung cdma phone with a qualcom msm cpu gets gingerbread, it would be alot eaisier



but i have no experience with

/data/dalvik-cache
/cache/dalvik-cache
/sd-ext/dalvik-cache

to confirm this yourself

boot into cwm

go into mounts and storage and mount data

plug phone into computer

adb shell
cd /data/dalvik-cache
ls

there should be files there

cd /

now on phone go into mounts and storage and unmount data

go into advanced and wipe dalvik

go into mounts and storage and mount data

adb shell
cd /data
ls

you should not see a dalvik-cache folder


please edit your post with an update, so that people dont get confused

depends on if it has touchwiz or not, if its touchwiz 90% of it will be useless.

The cpu is qualcomm, ms7276? I think let me double check that and get back to you.

The bryce is an lg. and it will be called the lg esteem, it looks like a decent mid to high device too.

1ghz snapdragon cpu 512 ram 4GB internal storage 5mp auto focus rear cam with led flash 4.3 inch screen with 400 x800 res, I think thats the res not positive. LTE 4g Front facing cam, 1.3 mp I think, could be less though. possibly other goodies, I keep up with metro too. lol I had them for a while but could not stand the 1x speed now my wife has my optimus M
that by far is a great first android by the way.

OK I have to make a correction, the cpu information I thought I read is not correct, or more accurately there isnt any specific information, it is just listed as single core 800mhz, could be the same one the prevail has really.

Playing around with Titanium Backup today and noticed that it has an option to create an update.zip file to install TB from CWM. I tried both scripting options, Edify and Amend and neither one worked. Apparently, our CWM will no longer recognize Amend scripts and gives instructions to use Edify, which is fine. But, the Edify script also aborts.

Is there a way to get this to work?

I do not feel like resetting my phone right now, but I was curious about this:

Now that we have CWM installed, what happens if you select Settings / Privacy / Factory Data Reset?

Will it automatically run the reset option in CWM or does it just bring up the CWM menu or will it do what it used to do or will it do something else?

Is there a way to get this to work?
amend is old and outdated, cwm 2.x was last time it was used. as for teh edify it may not have the correct script made for it. if you pm me a copy of the script ill take a look. whats the error?

Not sure if this is what you need but here it is:


show_progress(0.0,0);
ui_print("");
ui_print("Installing Titanium Backup ...");
mount("yaffs2", "MTD", "data", "/data");
show_progress(0.33,0);
package_extract_file("data/app/com.keramidas.TitaniumBackup.apk", "/data/app/com.keramidas.TitaniumBackup.apk");
show_progress(0.5,0);
show_progress(0.5,0);
unmount("/data");
show_progress(0.5,0);
ui_print("Done !");


When you try to apply it:

Finding update package
Opening update package
Installing update...
E:Error in /sdcard/TitaniumBackup-4.0.1.zip
(status 0)
Installation aborted

on phone menu, or in cmw?
if in phone menu
I would think it would reboot to recovery, but the rest of the script isnt there so it would not work.

From the phone menu. That makes sense. Thanks.

one thing i can think is maybe it thinks the os is gingerbread, i followed the instructions from here

http://www.koushikdutta.com/2010/10/porting-clockwork-recovery-to-new.html

if you look at prop files and stuff and other files in in my cmw alot of stuff says gingerbread

but when i tested it, everything was working within cms so i released it

or maybe becuase it is cwm 4 and not supported

i am not sure at this point, if it is because it thinks it is gingerbread, we can probally fix it

if it because it is cwm 4 than we will need to create a cwm 3

Do not know how to unbreak it, so...

I deleted that line, rezipped the package and ran it again.

Get no error code this time, it just says:

Finding update package...
Opening update package...
Installing update...
Installation aborted.

I also tried it after manually mounting /system and /data, and same thing.

Now, lazy me, not having a copy of winzip, I just used whatever zip comes with Win 7. I would have expected it to crash when opening the package if this was a problem.

I was reading about Link2SD and decided to install it and just screw around with it. After setting it up it asked me to select the type of partition I wanted to use and it gave me a list. At first I selected ex3 and it said something about no partition being there or my phone didn't support it. So after that I selected ex2 and it found the 500 MB partition I had made earlier with clockwork. I been using it ever since and its been working great.

I'm kinda confused about this. I am pretty sure I selected ex3 in Clockwork. What are the major differences between ex3 and ex2? Could they be so similar that one could be read by the other kinda like being backwards compatible? If I did select ex2 by mistake instead of ex3 does that mean that the Prevail is compatible off the shelf with ex2 since mine is only rooted with the bloat removed?
this is quoted from the shabbymod thread, but i think it would be good to discuss it here

i've been having a bit of trouble using a disk partition for link2sd and using a backup recovery with CWM

anyone know enough about these two (link2sd & CWM) to help?

btw shabby, if we can get a few kinks worked out you should totally include link2sd with your mod

still trying to narrow it down, (as we speak) but from what i can initially guess, is that link2sd seems to work best by creating a secondary partition (as a primary fat32) to store its stuff

CWM doens't like that 2nd partition when it comes time to backup/restore/flash stuff

i think it says "unable to mount /sd-ext" or something like that and just skips over it

even worse whenever i do a backup recovery i think CWM reformats the secondary partition as a ext3 ?? which then causes link2sd to break the connection (even though it says it supports it??? but it doesn't seem to work)

so basically every time you do a backup recovery or flash a new mod, CWM will change the format of the partition to ext3 which requires a link2sd user to reformat the same partition again to fat32 to re-establish the connection to link2sd

i'm not very sure about all of this because i'm testing stuff now, unfortunately i don't have a link2sd expert here to help me determine which end this problem could be easier to resolve from, so i'll just make CWM suggestions for the time being

well it may be that link2sd works with etx files system, but maybe our prevail kernel does not support ext, but I am not sure


i did not create cwm i just made a version of it for this phone, so I am not a cwm expert, but it sounds like it tries to use the first fat partition it finds, when looking for files to flash, and backup and restore and such

for those people that have two fat partions on sd

what happens when you are in android, and plug phone into computer and connect to USB Mass storage, do you see both partitions?

Extended partition if your kernel supports it android sees that ext3 formated partition on your sd card and reads it just like it is part of the internal memory.

is the first partition where regular stuff is stored or where the linktosd is stored

and when you use file browser on phone does it show the first or second

does link2sd let you choose which partition you want to use
