    Are nandroids made with CWMT incompatible with Xionia CWMA? Last night I reinstalled Xionia, but when I tried to restore one of my backups, i got something like "no __________.img found" for system, data, cache, and recovery. Boot was the only .img that would be restored, which just led to an unbootable setup (I was going from CM9 Kraven to a nandroid of CM7 Kraven). Eventually I reinstalled CWMT and i was able to complete the restore.

    Xionia backups are fine in CWMT but the reverse is not true. In ClockworkMod 5, there is a new backup mechanism that is incompatible with older recoveries.

    Interesting. Thanks!

    This is a known issue and a fix is being worked on. In TH6, I've disabled the on-screen recovery log. This is NOT a final decision, but I would like everyone's input. I believe the recovery is stable enough to warrant this change.
    IMHO, I do not like that the text has been removed. It's nice to see, especially when making a backup or flashing a file, if there have been any errors. Just my 2 cents. Keep up the great work drew! You astound us all every day

    The on-screen log will make a return in the next build until we can find a good compromise, be it a menu switch or something more fancy.

    Is there a way to disable the touch controls? They can be useful, but i've caught myself rebooting the phone or almost flashing update.zip due to accidental touches. IMHO, it's a little risky to have touch controls for something that can mess you up big time if you're not paying attention :P

    Nope, they're baked into the recovery code. Remember that the standard Volume-Up/Volume-Down/Menu buttons still behave normally, so you can use those instead if you wish.

    I literally just dealt with this about five minutes ago. What you gotta do is boot into recovery, go to mounts and storage, then hit "mount sd card". i also hit "mount system" but i'm not sure if that's necessary.

    Then type

    Code:
    adb shell
    flash_image recovery /sdcard/CWMTRecovery_5.0.2.7-th6_thunderc.img

    you need to download the flash_image.zip file, extract it to the root of your sd card.
    then, from a root shell


    Code:
    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock5 /system
    cat /sdcard/flash_image > /system/bin/flash_image
    chmod 755 /system/bin/flash_image
    mv /system/etc/install-recovery.sh /system/etc/install-recovery.sh.bak   -- (If you get an error here, it's ok keep going)
    mount -o remount,ro -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock5 /system
    flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery.img
    reboot recovery

    go to the xionia clockwork thread. You will find the flash.img dl.

    finally.. been having the same issue as that guy, for some reason i thought i had to rename it to recovery.img, slow sporadic reading of this thread poisoned me i think lol. but finally worked.. thanx!

    could have sworn i tried it with the original filename before and it didnt work.. think i just have a bit of the wet brain.

    also the recovery is working perfect with the new touch buttons.. to bad my volume down is so worn out now it dosent even have a slight click you can feel.

    Can we have the REGULAR CWM build? I just want the regular build from when it wasn't touch screen...

    Xionia just ain't cutting it.

    If you want standard CWM, you can port and build it yourself. Sorry but this is the direction we're going with this.

    What bothers you about a touch interface? You can still use the hardware buttons.

    I liked to be able to see the running log of what it was doing. Also it gave us forgetfull people an idea of what we had already done (kinda nice on xionia when you have to wipe about 8 different ways). But I liked the touch interface enough to deal with the loss.

    The touch interface is just that I am used to the HW buttons... also, I need CWM ... like this one but it doesn't show the log....

    Thnx for suggestions.
