The reason cwm won't flash, is because the img is to big, has to be 5mb or smaller. So, I took the recovery I had, removed cwm's images (the images you see in the menu) and got it under 5mb. Flashed without a problem, except when I went into recovery mode, I just got a blank screen and every time I rebooted, it would loop booting into recovery. Thought I bricked the damn thing, but, if you enter the lte calibration mode, you can have adb access. So, I reflashed the stock recovery and all's good. Also, I had renamed recovery-from-boot.p and install-recovery.sh, as I had read that renaming these would help if cwm had issues sticking after a flash. I'm gonna reflash my altered recovery.img and rename the above mentioned files back to original and see what happens.



Edit: same thing, when boot into recovery, blank screen

stock recovery is 5.2MB, so that shouldnt be it, cwm is just 5.3MB.

Default Re: [CWM] Development Thread

usually a dump_image will be the whole actual image so if the stock image is 5.2mb cwm should be less or equal to 5.2mb...for example the Droid Incredible recovery stock image is 4.50mb(via dump_image) a new recovery(not in a zip or watever) is 3.78 MB...the device will fill in the missing space wen dump_image is used....these are my thoughts im not really sure so yea i feel dumb now xD

man, dunno. me and PG has tested several different builds of cwm and none work, he even built a cm7 ver. i can get it to flash, but just get a blank screen and phone keeps booting to recovery and have to re-flash stock recovery to get the phone to boot. i'm thinking maybe there is something in the kernel keeping a custom recovery from flashing.

Default location of cwm

Say you end up flashing cwm , where would it be located in the system file , the exact path?

When you split the recovery img, most of the information is in that.

I'm personally stumped as of now. I'm not too sure if it's the OS i was using, the compiler or any thing else. The number of warnings that come up is alarming, this is a terrible headache. The GCC compiler in Ubuntu is 4.7 now and the last non-bitchy one with CWM build was 4.3.1. It's beyond confusing because this problem even occurs with AOSP which is maintained by Google and the community. If we had a 3.X linux kernel for our phones this would be EASY.

it seams ths bootloader is messin with y'all... i mean unless the boot.img has something to do with recovery but wouldn't think so, unlike samsung, they merge both the kernel and recovery ramdisk is the boot.img(its a pain)...

Yeah, the compiler has nothing to do with the recovery, I can build cwm all day and it wont work with this phone. For cwm to work, one will have to recompile the kernel from source, which we do not have, for it to work. PG an I have been collaborating with koush and utkanos on a recovery, but until the source is made public, there may be nothing we can do. The thing is, the recovery partition is only 5.1mb and a custom recovery is to large for the allocated space. That's why we need the source, that way we can remove some non essential code to shrink the recovery image.

It said the recovery didn't close when I flashed it, then it skipped recovery and booted normally. I'll try it again...got an idea.

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

My idea didn't work out, so I had to reflash stock recovery from calibration mode.

I tried using the compiled recovery.img from builder.clockworkmod.com. my new recovery.img is 126kb bigger than my stock recovery.img. I flashed the new one using flash_image to get an error closing recovery blah blah. I am assuming the compiled .img is bigger than the partition and wont install. I used flash_image to reflash my stock .img and everything was good. Now in reading about you removing the images from the .img instead of removing them have you thought about replacing them using a simple color background at a 2kb size? maybe something in the .img is looking for them and wont continue to proceed cause it cant find them.

I used the http://www.freeware4android.net/get-software-175766.html Partition Table App to check out more about the partition sizes on the coolpad. ITs showing it only has a 5mb partition for Recovery with 180mb free in the data partition.

I see that after you removed them you were able to flash the .img because it dropped it below the 5.0mb partition size. I think it was compiled with those images for a reason. im a noob and I might be wrong. but so far I've managed to get this far. Perhaps maybe increase the recovery partition size to 6mb and try it then?

If it had a locked bootloader it should give some sort of error when attempting to boot cwm or a repacked boot.img. Something along the lines of failed signature etc etc etc.

The partition size cant just be increased, thus the img has to be at or below 5MB. Most of the images arent for anything important, but removing only allows the img to flash, it still didnt boot, or at least boot correctly. And without having this thing in hand, its kinda hard for me to diagnose it further really.

Well when I flashed the 5.2 recovery it kicked back a error can not close recovery I booted it back into recovery for it to just skip over recovery and boot back into my OS. I then reflashed my stock recovery and rebooted and went into to recovery mode.

My idea is to basically create dummy pictures inside the .img that are only 1 por 2k insize instead of just completely removing them, cause its coming up to a blank black screen and that's it. My thinking on this something inside the recovery is calling for those images and its not finding them so its stopping itself from loading into recovery. It cant load if its not finding something that's sposed to be there.

If I could just find a way to modify the recovery.img I got to tired last night to pursue any other means of doing it. I am even considering asking the guys from CWM to look into and making it just a wee bit smaller. Or a way to compile it to the 5.x.x.x instead of 6.x.x.x for Android 4.2 support. This phone really I think would only handle 4.0 max I don't know about Android 4.2 which 6.x.x.x is optimized for.

I kind of wish the builder from cwm allowed you to tell it what size your recovery partition was so it could adjust itself and output a proper sized .img.

the pictures in the recovery.img are .png

Arent .jpegs smaller than .pngs? would it be possible to convert these images to jpeg and repack them perhaps maybe making the output size smaller? we only need to knock off 140kbs of file size. I tested it starting with a .bmp at 5.4mbs I saved it as a .png at 2.4mbs then saved it to a jpeg at 800kbs. for a substantial 1.6mb size decrease from a .png.

kenboyles already tired w/o the images, I have already tried cwm 5 - 6, and kenyboyles and myself have consulted with utkanos and others who work with koush. utkanos basically said nothing can be done until kernel src is available to do it properly. Something is funky with this device, I will check with a few contacts to see if I can get one to tinker with.

I know you have tried w/o them which I assume means stripping them from the recovery.img however has anyone tried just replacing them with smaller file size replacements such as a picture of just a color or a .jpeg which uses less data? Dummy images basically to fool into thinking they are there but aren't.

this is an odd situation cause it seems they knowingly deadlocked it so we can't have access to improving our phone. I got a similar email from them when I asked for a rom of the original phone state for recovery purposes. But I have some faith, because I know there is always a way. Considering they no longer market this phone to MetroPCS and it has been discontinued you would think they would release the source code for it.

we tried using cwm5 which builds a img that fits within the 5MB but it still didnt boot correctly.

I uploaded a flashable zip of modded stock. No way to use it though, flash_image can't even flash the img of it to the phone.

Knew I should of went with another LG. This newfangled foreign stuff just never seems to work out. I wonder why they wont hand over the source code though.

It's an OMAP3630SDP phone, two bootloaders like all the others, it takes soooo much time to get it to work. You have to compile files (X-loader.bin and u-boot.bin) for the SDCard to invoke both bootloaders, sorta similar to the HTC phones except HTC is able to see the damn thing and access fastboot. Limbo.

Hello Micheal,


Currently, we are unable to provide a rom for the Coolpad Quattro 4G. I apologize for the inconvenience.

they're only forced to release kernel source, sometimes its not even complete source, so it needs to be fixed for it to build.
