[Recovery] ZenGarden 188.8.131.52-T ............. 01-30-2013
When I first built and release CWM-Blue Recovery I centered it around my ROM builds, but over time I saw a need by the V community. The need for a recovery that is simple to use and does what the seasoned root users, but most notably those that are new to root needs a recovery to do.
ZenGarden Recovery Hard Key Version had been discontinued due to keeping with the coding of multiple version has become difficult.
- Display installed recovery version under Settings > About phone (required boot into recovery, but currently will not show up).
- Add extra Debugging > Quick Fix option to install zip from data partition if sdcard is none functional(Must run Prepare for New Install at lease one).
- Added Partition Manager with option to convert your existing sd-ext.
- Better Reboot menu.
- Added option to delete a Backup..
- if backup does not pass md5sum verification it is now automatically deleted.
- Multiple install options - Auto install Gapps after installing ROM.
- Boot into Bootloader option added to Power/Reboot Menu.
- Reverted back to storing backups to clockworkmod folder (backups in zencovery folder well be moved to defaulted backup directory automatically. This may take time depending on the size of the the backups and how many there are, so don't freak if it seems like the recovery is stuck).
- Fix Recovery Boot Loop.
- Home Key is menu select (Hard Key).
- Minor fixes for better handling of auto function errors.
- Simplified menu options, moved things around of easier navigation.
- Wipe menu options (Data/Factory Reset, Wipe Cache/Delcik-Cache, Format everything and Format just things needed before updating current ROM).

Below images are not true, if I can get emulator working right I'll update to better screen shots.
[BOX=Flash.zip]If you are stuck in recovery do to a Recovery Boot-Loop or a bad flash, use this flash zip to get out of those problems; just flash in recovery as you would any zip file then reboot recovery.
Recommended install methods are terminal/adb or IHO Updater. if you chose to use Flash Image GUI app then rename the recovery to recovery.img.
The source code for both are available here:
adb shell flash_image recovery /path-to-recoveryimage/name of recovery
None Touch Version Source Code!
IHO Updater Source!
I'm currently redoing IHO Updater to just simply install a chosen zip v.i.a. recovery.
[BOX=Install without sdcard]
First format the system, data, boot and cache partitions or run the Wipe/Format Options > Prepare for New Install, then push the zip to the data partition.
After that is done go to Advance Option > Deugging > Quick Fixes and select Install without sdcard. Recovery then will reboot and install the zip file.
adb shell mount /data/
adb push "pathing to zip/name of zip" /data/
