[Mod] Big Update! 2ndInit!

    Awesome news guys! I have successfully ported the 2ndInit Recovery to the C2! I replaced the Defy recovery with the recovery I worked up. As of right now, I do not have an apk to install it, it will require the use of ADB.

    Thanks to the Korean developers that created the 2ndInit method for the Defy, without them, none of this were possible. Also thanks to polovinamozga and bdoc from xda for helping me get a working recovery, and my GRP team for helping me getting started. Also thanks to ksubedi on xda for adb instructions on the xda.

    **As always, not responsible for what does or doesn't happen to your device. If you aren't comfortable with voiding your warranty, do not attempt.**

    Create a folder on the root of your sd card called bootmenu. Download this file and unzip it to your sd in the bootmenu folder you created.

    Once completed, run the following commands to install.

    Code (Text):
    1. C:/> adb shell
    2. $ su
    3. # cp -R /sdcard/bootmenu /data/bootmenu
    4. # cd /data/bootmenu
    5. # chmod 755 *
    6. # ./install.sh
    7. # rm -R /data/bootmenu
    This installs the bootmenu onto your phone. Once the commands are complete, turn off USB Debugging and reboot your phone once. Allow it to reboot. To get into recovery, reboot your phone again. When powering on, after the red LED turns off, a blue LED will show up briefly. When you see the blue LED, press the volume down button. Android BootMenu will display. Use volume buttons to navigate to [Custom Recovery] start. and press the volume button. Use volume buttons again to navigate CWMR, but use the camera button to select. If you get into a menu with no Go Back option, slide open the keyboard and use the delete button to go back.

    # cp-R /sdcard/bootmenu /data/bootmenu
    cp-R: not found
    # co -R, /sdcard/bootmenu /data/bootmenu
    co: not found
    # cp -R, /sdcard/bootmenu /data/bootmenu
    unknown option -- ,usage: cp [-Rfhip] src target;
    cp [-Rfhip] src1 ... srcN directory
    # cd /data/bootmenu
    cd: can't cd to /data/bootmenu

    OK for windows 7 to be able to adb you have to go to application-> development -> keep awake before the su command. or else you will get permission denied

    other than that good work... Now i can finish my rom and test it finally

    one suggestion though hah can you make the text a little bigger? I had to take a pic of the recovery on my other phone and zoom in

    Yeah, I'll try and get it bigger

    Backup and restore definitely work. Haven't made a rom yet to flash zip, but can't foresee it not working.

    Don't use it to do update.zip. Use Choose zip from SD.

    Also, I'm leaving tomorrow for a 2 week vacation, so I won't be able to help much, if at all. But tattedman, I can help out via GTalk sometimes.
