    After my experiences in post #112, I decided to err on the side of caution when moving from Android 4.2.2 to 4.3 and since my previous backups were on the retro version, I decided to stay there. Laziness on my part really as I haven't checked out the latest recoveries. How is everyone finding them?

    Personally just using the version that came with Echoe, can't really see the point of continually upgrading if the version you currently use works....

    PhilZ Recovery 5.18.9 is up! :)

    "- add option to disable all nags on exit (root, flash recovery)
    - add menu to root system and verify recovery
    - code clean-up

    Hope this will satisfy complaints from root nag
    However, I think it is good that ROM makers fix their root things for 4.3 properly instead of disabling the feature
    It is enabled by default, turn off at your wish

    Download for i9505, v5.18.9.

    Download for i9500, v5.15.0

    It shouldn't cause any issues in changing the name of backups should it. I'm used to TWRP allowing you to create a name before starting the backup. I like to use the date, ROM, and kernel as the backup name. Just thought I'd ask as I can't seem to find an answer anywhere.

    Thanks :)

    No problem. Just don't use any spaces

    If you use the"online nandroid backup" app, it lets you name the backup first, and you can back up and still use your phone without going into recovery mode. It also links in with the "nandroid manager" app which is also well worth having

    PhilZ Recovery 6.00.5 is up! :)

    "This is an important update. The random negative time bug on backups ended to be a memory overflow issue. I strongly advise to update your recovery. Took me a while to figure this
    I also removed useless entries from mounts and storage menu

    Please, do your best to debug this version and test all that you can
    Report any non expected issue, even if seems non important. A small glitch can hide a huge bug

    Am back.

    Latest version working perfectly so far for me, no more of that annoying restore root question on rebooting from recovery either.....

    Thank goodness for that! I was about to send Hawker into your cave and poke you out of hibernation with a stick.

    Every time I try and do a backup from ROM Manager on the latest PhilZ's I get...

    E:unknown volume for path [/external_swd/clockworkmod/backup/ date+time

    Looks like its back to good old PhilZ 5.15.8. :rolleyes:

    Im on MGA and likely to update to the latest Djembey today. Will the Philz installed previously be fine for the latest firmware?

    My Philz is verson 5.11.0 btw

    Anything up to good old v5.15.8 is OK for me Rudedawg. Just remember, if you are asked to, "Fix root", when doing a Recovery... say No!

    I would. I'm finding talexop kernel to be great.
