    This recovery doesn't work, links removed: seems that whenever building from the site it builds the updated version of cwm which is 6xx... but we need 5xx so for now I'm leaving this to the real devs;)

    didnt see recovery had gotten posted, to have them install is just copy to sdcard and dd the recovery.img back to the recovery partition

    uhhh dont you know what partition that is?

    part of porting cwm is setting up the fstab, which tells recovery what partitions are what, an incorrect one could have you formatting your bootloader thinking it was data or cache...

    you can get it in teh stock recovery when you unpack the img

    That's what I did, I unpacked the stock recovery and took the recovery.fstab then added it to the builder thing

    ah ok, recovery should be listed in there, i dont think many here will know what partition it resides on :)

    i seriously hope that isnt the true fstab, if someone with the device can do adb shell mount that will tell you where data and system reside and see. i wouldnt put it past them to use such an old (*&^ty setup, but is there a fstab emmc in the etc folder in teh recovery.img as well?
  9. Killah1994

    Killah1994 Well-Known Member

    That is the fstab for the stock recovery.img and there's no fstab emmc in there

    Dam, so in your words what does this mean;)

    this phone is even crappier than originally thought :p

    but this means that flashing recovery should be a lot easier, since its mtd you can just use flash_image to flash it, no partition needed it will figure it on its own :)

    i did cwm for teh venture and they had to do the similar steps someone found a much easier way to flash for the end users, might wanna look into it

    virgin mobile venture btw on these forums

    tryed it and it just goes to black screen saying recovery mode and sits there. I put stock recovery back on just letting you know it didn't work. Im working on it as well so if i get CWM on it ill let you know.

    So I was wrong and I have to update the Koush's CWM 5.x.x.x script to work with the new compilers. It's terrific... I hate that the phone has no ICS update! [​IMG]

    What needs to happen next? I don't know what to do with the zip package, but I can do compiling if it's spelled out for me. I'd be glad to help if I can...I just don't have much experience in this area.

    You do NOT have to use cwm5, cwm 6 will work just fine. WTF does these misconceptions come from?

    I am looking into it by request of a friend, but no promises as I do not have the device.

    Killcmd two post above this one mentions cwm 5 so i think that's where it started!
