    So how close are we to a workable CM based ROM?

    anyone flashing my CM11 builds will have to be on that recovery. I took the liberty of fixing USB Mounting, exfat/f2fs formatted partitions support, and a slightly faster load up time. We'll be running CM11 in no time :)

    Oh I know this is a CM thread but how hard would it be to get a touch recovery working for our phones?

    Is this any different from the other CWM Recovery from the other thread?
    Also anyway to flash that without a computer?

    If you place it on the root of your sd card, execute these commands in terminal emulator:

    Code (Text):
    1. su
    2. dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p16
    3. dd if=/sdcard/cwm.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p16
    Make sure you type it exactly, else you might end up borking up something.
    Also, it should be mmcblk0p16 for the recovery partition, as I believe mmcblk0p15 is the boot partition.

    correct, 15 is boot and recovery is 16. but yea the newer cwm may not work with the sds, but also you shouldnt need a newer cwm for a newer rom, they are usually unrelated unless its a samaung...

    im saying that because the cwm will flash the zip unmodified but the other recovery needs the updater-script to be patched
