    THIS HAS NOT BEEN TESTED!!! USE AT YOUR OWN PERIL!!! Update: So far i have it working for DJ20 users. Still fighting it some with DL17 users.


    Hey folks,

    Jt1134 (awesome Samsung Fascinate dev) and I were discussing the current plight of the Samsung Continuum. Looking over things, it looks like we can make clockwork recovery work for you guys. Please note, I DO NOT have a Samsung Continuum, so I cannot test this procedure. IT IS ESSENTIAL that someone makes ODIN images PRIOR to this! While it should work, lets be safe, folks.

    Once again, let me repeat, I do not have a Continuum to test this, so make sure you have proven, tested Odin images at your disposal. I found no kernels for the Continuum made, so I need to baseline for what works.

    I made this cwm recovery Odin image for folks to try.

    This alone WILL NOT give you clockwork recovery. The next step is to download Rom Manager, choose flash clockwork recovery, and from the choices, choose Samsung Fascinate.

    This downloads an update.zip to your sdcard. Rebooting from Rom Manager should boot into recovery. Manual booting into recovery takes you to stock recovery. You merely need to install update.zip from the menu for clockwork recovery.

    Hope I was able to help!

    bubby323 has been working on this for about a month now over on XDA... I think he has made some good progress. You should try to get in touch with him to find out exactly where we stand. More devs the better. :D

    Yes but this is an actual product... I just need someone to make working Odin images and test. I am a man of action so if I am wasting my time, please let me know.

    I am using jt1134's modified initramfs. As long as the kernel configuration Samsung provided is good, then clockwork is a go. I do not have a phone to test myself.

    I would give this a try guys. Considering jt1134 is responsible in some way either directly (or helped bigtime) for recovery and kernel development for pretty much all the fascinate variants (fascinate, showcase, mesmorize)......and adryanlyne is respnsible for pretty much all of the.fascinate odin files and voodoo fixes (amongst a ton of other things)

    If they're offering to help look at it as a godsend. :)

    IT WORKS :D
    Thank you so much! :D
    oh, and i am willing to test any voodoo ports :)


    i have a semi-working odin image, the only thing that isn't working is the modem part... which you might not even want... Bubby sent it to me a while ago..
