    Quick update of both internal and external SD supporting recoveries to v5.0.2.7-R2

    Both .img files in one package: cwm-5.0.2.7-R2.zip
    MD5#: d2264c6631db5c5c4da8dabf6ff2fa01

    By request a quick explanation of the difference between the two recoveries:

    Usually, your recovery image will look on the external SD card for ROMs to flash, and backups to restore, and the external version here is no different. For the most part that is fine and dandy (unless you don't have an SD card I guess), however the stock O2X mounts it's internal SD card as /sdcard, which confuses ROM Manager a fair bit.

    The internal version of the recovery mounts the internal storage as /sdcard as well, so ROM Manager can find backups it's made etc.

    NOTE: Backups made with v5 are not compatible with earlier versions.

    1. None this time, as I doubt anyone uses SD-EXT or cares about the splash


    Older versions:




    All credits to Koush for a hell of a lot of hard work.

    Off topic..does the opitmus have stock recovery? And how do you get into it? Key combo....? We are having issues with the lg revolution on Verizon. No stock recovery. Thanks if you can help.

    It does, but it pretty much just wipes the phone and not a lot more.

    You get to it the same way you get to a custom one. Hold vol- and power on, and keep 'em held.

    Ok thanks man. That is an odd recovery compared to moto. What about key combo for bootloader?

    Bootloader doesn't have a key combo, if you want that, you have to wipe your boot partition.
