    Does it avoid the EMMC bug?

    Working on that one myself. i haven't embarked into the creation or port of clockwork recovery. Maybe b_random knows something about the recovery, If not i'll figure it out.

    On this phone, the kernel and recovery are combined. The kernel has recovery packaged with it. If you flash just this CWM Recovery using Agats recovery, it will not take since you are still using the Agats kernel which is using its own recovery that it will revert back to after reboot. (Correct if I am wrong)

    100% correct. So in case anyone is wondering, you must have a custom kernel with a custom recovery baked in. Having said that if you are on cm10 or other aosp based roms, you need a kernel for aosp based roms. If you are on the stock rom, or a sprint touchwiz based rom, you need a kernel that is touchwiz based.

    It is very confusing and sucks that the kernel and recovery must be packed together but i suppose we must make do with it.

    As soon as i figure out how to repack kernels, I plan on decompiling the stock fj12 kernel image, and pack in agats recovery so we can have a stock kernel that is built for our phone with a custom recovery in it.

    Nice, That would be great any time its a restore (not backup) its no custom recovery on the other side.

    Has anyone tried to dd this recovery img to the right recovery /dev/block? Is that a bad idea? Would that make it stick?
