    I've updated the thread above with some new info: there does indeed seem to be a difference in the source
    file(s) that I retrieved and tweaked to make this trackball-optional recovery. I'm going to download and try to compile the source version that does include the partitioning menu options (if it compiles, I should be able to make my same alternate key changes). Stay tuned...I'll let you know.

    Cheers!

    Okay, I've got a new 1.7.1-based recovery recompiled (it'll still say Build 1.6.2 at the bottom of the screen). I just need to package it up and re-post it on the other thread.

    I've tested that the trackball-alternative key navigation still works, but I'll let you, TL93, be my SD card partition tester :D (since I don't really want to partition my /sdcard). I do see that the menu items are back now...

    Check back after a while...cheers!

    Nice! Thank you for replying and the feedback. Glad it worked for you. (You used the Partition sdcard menu options I take it?). Thank you for being my mini-beta tester ;) :).

    Now, I gotta post my updates re. this over on XDA.
