Backup the HTC One X/X+ recovery
Hi all, I've just watched:
And I was wondering if the same thing would be possible with the HTC One X+.
In short you could use:
# fastboot boot recovery-cwm188.8.131.52-intl-hoxp.img downloading 'boot.img'... OKAY [ 0.896s] booting... OKAY [ 0.008s] finished. total time: 0.904s
I just tried it (both recovery-cwm184.108.40.206-intl-hoxp.img and openrecovery-twrp-220.127.116.11-enrc2b.img) and it's not working with the HTC One X+. As soon as the device is restarted it gets stuck on the HTC logo. Turning it off and on again makes the device boot normally.
Any idea on how to get this to work?

Re: Backup the HTC One X/X+ recoveryNot sure, but cwm is not designed for the one x/+... twrp is what you should use.
And I'm pretty sure you can only do this on nexus devices due to the way the bootloader is on those devices

Re: Backup the HTC One X/X+ recovery
I'm pretty sure the stock recovery stays on the phone after installing twrp... the recovery img changes the end of it so that the system doesn't use it, and uses the custom recovery instead: example ... instead of .bak it will change it to something else like .bakMm2 so the system won't recognize it. All you have to do is go back and edit the file name when you want to revert to stock recovery.
Search the xda forums for the exact process, but I believe this is exactly what it does
