You do that in this file in the device folder: device/motorola/triumph/recovery/minui/graphics.c
I installed CWM 188.8.131.52 and then TG reloaded. Now when I go to google play, it wants to update CWM to version 184.108.40.206 and SuperUser from v3.0.4 to v3.0.7
From what I understand reading here, I should not update CWM because the 220.127.116.11 is specially made for Triumph, but how do I set it so that it doesn't show on the google play update list? I'm afraid i'll hit update by mistake and run into problems later. Is there a problem if I update superuser?
You can't update CMWR through the play store... Maybe you mean rom manager which doesn't matter if you update it. Also you can update superuser with no problems.
You're right, it's the ROM manager. So it doesn't matter if I upgrade it? Actually it's more like downgrading from 18.104.22.168 to 22.214.171.124. How about SU?
Yes, you can go ahead and upgrade superuser. It doesn't matter if you upgrade rom manager or not since for the most part, the Triumph doesn't use it and it's not fully supported. I just usually get rid of rom manager, actually.
I only use it for the "Reboot into recovery" button.
I updated mine and it is 126.96.36.199, which, IIRC, can recognise hacked versions of CWM.
If that's all that you use it for, then all of the custom ROMS already have that option in the power menu. So unless you just like having that app installed, there's no need for it.
Obviously, it's just your personal preference, but I prefer not to have an app installed taking up room/constantly running and checking for updates, etc, when a simple option on the power menu will do the same thing.
Btw, if you're using cm7 or cm9, the reboot into recovery option is listed in the Reboot option in the power menu.
Or if you're using MIUI (1.11.25 build), then you can either flash the Extended Settings mod that other people have mentioned, or flash this mod that just modifies the power menu:
I don't have a reboot to recovery option in my CM7 power menu; I do have the confirmation box disabled, if that's where it is. (I loathe "Are you sure?" prompts.)
I almost used it for backup/restore but since CWM makes it so easy to do a cold backup, there isn't much point.
I'm with you in that if it isn't used, get rid of it!
Hope someone can save me some research time but has anyone been able to get Windows to recognize the Triumph why in CWR, if our CWR even supports it, not sure about that. I have been doing a lot of init.d script testing and just mounting system and swapping out the file with ADB would be a lot less time consuming then restoring a backup every time I get stuck in a boot loop. Sorry if anyone has previously answered this question.
I'm not sure exactly why the MT doesn't recognize adb and mounting the usb in cwm. All of the code needed "seems" to be there the last time I looked into it.
However, for your situation, I would recommend that you just make a flashable zip with the original files to undo everything if needed and keep that on your sdcard so if you bootloop, you can just boot back into cwm and flash the "undo" zip file. This is quicker than having to restore the whole ROM. That's what I do when I'm testing out mods like you're doing.
Can the usb mounting in the recovery be set to diag. mode? I've found keeping it that way via anycut keeps me from having issues. Also, sdcard adapter and reader, then you can just unmount/mount in the recovery.
I don't know if it can.
Thanks for the update mantera
I added a new recovery version 188.8.131.52 to the OP.
Basically what's new that I added is that this version will recognize the .no_confirm and .one_confirm files in your clockworkmod folder when you are wiping cache and/or data.
Basically, having the .no_confirm file will just do your selected action without all of those NO lines.
The .one_confirm file will have only 1 line of NO and 1 line of Yes on the confirmation screen. I recommend this if you are like me and really hate all of those No lines.
To create the file, the easiest way I found is as follows (in Windows):
1. Connect your phone to your computer via usb.
2. Mount your USB drive so it shows up in My Computer or Windows Explorer.
3. Open Notepad or Notepad++.
4. Create a new blank file.
5. Click File --> Save As and browse to the clockworkmod folder on your phone.
6. Name the file as either .no_confirm or .one_confirm -- BE SURE TO TYPE THE PERIOD IN THE BEGINNING OF THE NAME EXACTLY AS I HAVE LISTED. Also, you'll need to change the Save as type field to "All Files" so that notepad does not add an extension.
The next time that you boot into cwm and try doing an action, you should notice the confirm prompt either no longer prompting you or only having one line of NO, respectively.
Will Notepad's insistence on adding a file extension (.txt) pose a problem?
Just change the name after you save it and remove the .txt. You could also change the name after moving it to the phone.
Windows isn't allowing that.
Yes. It will. I think if you change the file type to all files, it may not add the extension. I'll have to test later when I get a chance or let me know if that worked.
Can't rename the file without extension once it's on the phone, but creating a replacement with the "all files" option did sort that out.
Excellent. I updated the instructions to mention doing that. Thanks for checking.
I added a new version of CWM to the OP. The current version is 184.108.40.206. There really isn't a change log but from my observations and looking through the code, there were a few small bug fixes and also the background image was updated. I also included my fixes from the last version 220.127.116.11 in this.
So update if you want to, or don't if you don't.
The Zip in the OP is a flashable Zip that you can flash in cwm.
So I don't screw this up flashing this zip in cwm just updates cwm?
Edit: and just noticed the instructions in the first post about this.....
I can't mount my sdcard in recovery using this version?
No, that still doesn't work.
When I had my Intercept, the CWM recovery we used had a passcode protection option which I noticed isn't present in the Triumph's CWM. Any way something like that could be added?
Here's a link to the Intercept recovery (it's the CM01.zip; the post is pretty disorganized).
