    Default [CWM] Recovery Port from Connect (only GB)

    This is a "port" from the ms840 (Connect)

    I got the .img file from koush's rom manager website and changed the partion tables and the names from ms840 to ls840.

    I didn't build this from source Im just sharing what I did.
    Here is the link ClockworkMod ROM Manager - Recoveries

    So what works:
    Backing up data, system, boot, android_secure, cache, recovery, also the .md5
    Installing .zips (You have to use the volume keys to scroll down to yes)
    Restoring backups

    What I dont know works:


    What doesnt work:
    Recovery cant exit itself
    Cant boot into it from start
    Booting into recovery with charger in


    Download

    Install:
    place in current directory
    adb push recovery.img /data/local/tmp/recovery.img
    adb shell
    su
    dd if=/data/local/tmp/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p13
    then exit and unplug phone
    Append .bak to /system/etc/install_recovery.sh and /system/recovery_from_boot.p
    Go to term emulator(on phone) and type
    su
    reboot recovery

    enjoy
    Also if Im stepping on any toes tell me and i will take this down

    I will not be updating this because I didn't build this from source Im just sharing what I did.

    Booting into it more than once without re-flashing

    Install:
    unzip file and place in current directory
    adb push recovery.img /data/local/tmp/recovery.img
    adb shell
    su
    dd if=/data/local/tmp/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p13
    then exit and unplug phone go to term emulator(on phone) and type
    su
    reboot recovery

    OR

    Put the recovery.img on your sdcard
    Then run the attached script (recovery.txt) with su permissions(i used smanager and created a widget and ran the script when ever i want to go into recovery)

    enjoy
    Also if Im stepping on any toes tell me and i will take this down
    Not trying to be a downer here, but porting recoveries from other devices to this phone led to hard-brick. Are you sure this is safe before I flash this? I bought this phone off-contract so I'm trying not to damage it unless I'm the one who causes the brick.


    EDIT: Also, what makes it different from PP since we both have almost the same problems? Not being rude, just seeing if we could work together to fix the reboot issue..

    Ok i will keep that in mind. Ya I flashed it and it works fine. I think the only difference between this and PP is that mine backups everything and makes a md5 sum but I dont know if it will restore.

    Well you dont have to but on my phone it wont boot into the recovery more than once. I put a update.img on my sdcard then rebooted into recovery twice, the second time it booted into the factory update screen. Same thing happens to me on project panda.

    Because you forgot to delete install_recovery.sh, and recover_from_boot.p

    Cool. I'll see if I can check out the source files from this for Panda.
