    I tore down the recovery.img
    It is by far the ugliest thing I have ever seen. The default.prop is just the build.prop renamed (anyone who knows, knows you just don't do that), there are a lot of temp files still lingering around in the .img, and usb is broken worse than Kevin Ware's leg :p
    I fixed most of these problems and I'm going to setup a thread with links to the DL.

    the cwm backup image posted in the forums is just that, that what cwm does to get their images, so its exactly the same
    unless you built your rom from another source o_O

    I hope to get this booting soon. That's when the real fun begins. The stock image is so bloated with crap it is seriously going to take days to clean this thing up

    dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p15 of=/sdcard/boot.img

    Here is something new to test. It's just a zip of the boot.img with a few minor mods, so we can tell if it worked or not. Boot Test

    Did you do:
    "mkbootimg --kernel zImage --ramdisk initramfs.cpio.gz --base x80200000 --cmdline 'androidboot.hardware=qcom user_debug=31 loglevel=7 kgsl.mmutype=gpummu' -o new_boot.img" or something like that?

    I saw this in your script:

    ui_print("Flashing Kernel");
    package_extract_file("boot.img", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p15");
    show_progress(0.100000, 0);
    ui_print("");
    ui_print("");

    shouldn't it be:

    ui_print("Flashing Kernel");
    package_extract_file("boot.img", "/tmp/boot.img");
    write_raw_image("/tmp/boot.img", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p15");
    show_progress(0.100000, 0);
    ui_print("");
    ui_print("");

    :thinking:

    Well alright, and yeah I saw what u did with the warp. That was some good work. Hopefully we can have the same reaction from the community as u had there.
