    Could you please consider building a custom recovery for the Galaxy Avant ? It can already be rooted with Odin and CF Auto Root but there is no recovery for it yet and no word of a recovery being in the works. According to the person from Samsung who I spoke with, the MetroPCS Avant(SM-G386T1) and T-Mobile Avant (SM-G386T) both have the same software with the only differences being things like the boot animation, carrier specific apps, and the apn for mobile data. I have the MetroPCS version but anything you may decide to build should work for both variants. I have tried my best to go by your guidelines for device requests but I dont know how to use adb so there are some things I cant provide you with.
    [Edit] Somehow managed to get adb working by sheer luck so here's everything you ask for.

    Name:Galaxy Avant
    Carrier:MetroPCS & T-Mobile

    Adb shell cat /proc/cpuinfo:pastebin.com/2Pq0mt9T

    Its cool man. I understand that you're busy. A custom recovery really would be nice though since this phone is a real pain in the ass and deleting something that wouldn't matter on most rooted phones causes major malfunctions with this one. I've spent hours re-flashing the stock firmware then trying to set everything back up. A recovery would prevent so many headaches. With all that said, if you can't find the time or are otherwise unable, I understand.

    Do I have to register to chat on irc? It seemed to be working but I didn't see any activity from anybody else. If you need to get ahold of me u can just pm me if you want, unless you have pm turned off. In any case just let me know how you'd prefer to communicate.
    (Edit) Since phandroid seems to have taken away the thanks button I am officially saying THANKS for working on this recovery, and for all the work that you do.

    Hi, just registered to provide feedback.
    Thanks for putting effort into this. I downloaded your recovery.img from xda and tried to flash it with external update option in recovery, but it gave errors for signature and footer. I have no idea what those are, but if you give some directions I will be happy to follow and post further comments. Many thanks
