    I'm still working on building this from source (not the automated builder). I'll keep you guys posted. As for unbricking, I'm sure it's easily achievable from QPST. You guys are right; probably not a bad idea to have a guide on this.

    I have tried to flash this (and a source build of the non-touch recovery) and keep running into issues.

    3 methods that did not work for me:
    flash_image
    dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p16 bs=4094
    fastboot

    Actually, "dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p16 bs=4094" appears to work and displays proper output, however, the device boots into stock recovery. I've tried in every boot mode, including FTM and have not succeeded.

    Edit -> Killah1994: Thanks, by the way, for providing the touch recovery.

    No problem! It's pretty difficult to brick this phone while flashing recovery images, provided the modifications are focused on /dev/block/mmcblk0p16

    The non-touch recovery that I built from source and the touch recovery you built from the web-based builder appear to properly flash with dd, however, everything reverts back to stock recovery.

    I have a hunch that the boot.img replaces it on boot :/ Can you pull that up for me and upload it please? ;)




    Pretty much stock ICS recovery.... Stock meaning the original from source recovery... I shall Google something ;)

    Your hunch is correct. I'm working on a fix for this.
