    Spurred on by the discussion over Rom Manager soft-bricking phones and the fact that I had never flashed the Cannibal Recovery and was feeling like flashing it the easy complicated way, I decided to make an app that tries to make it painfully simple to flash a recovery.




    The Recovery Flasher Utility

    Screenshots:


    Directions:

    1. Download the App.

    2. Download a compatible recovery.

    3. Put the recovery on the root of your sdcard/external storage.

    4. Rename the recovery to "recovery.img" (IN ALL LOWERCASE).

    5. Fire up the app and install. (This app should work for pretty much every phone)

    6. Reboot to recovery and benefit.


    Code:
    #include
    //I'm not responsible if you flash an incompatible recovery
    //or decide to use Rom Manager because you think this sucks
    //or jump off any bridges
    //Most of all, follow the rules
    //and be kind to noobs, remember that what you are not you once were
    
    using namespace std
    
    int main()
    {  ProceedWithoutFurtherDelay();  }

    Recovery manager
    Hahaha that might not be as bad an idea as you might think. It would come up when people searched for Rom Manager.

    Maybe it would save a few bricks.

    Download from the Play Store
    The link might not work for a couple hours, give it time
    Rate if you please.

    //Donate by purchasing the currently non-existent donate version

    Oh yeah... if someone has a better name for this app, please tell me... Recovery Installation Utility sounds heavy and complicated
    Does it just run flash_image recovery to flash the recovery, there are alot of devices that flash_image doesn't work for. I will try it on my other toys for you.

    When I was looking for something to flash my recovery before flash image gui existed, I searched flash recovery ......so I would name it
    Flash Recovery.

    You should make a version of the app that uses the gordita exploit to install custom recovery without root.

    It won't work. I was talking to phatninja55 about it, it's because when gordita is run, the phone has to reboot in order for the scripts to finish installing the recovery.

    Not possible. But you already know that. xD Maybe include the gingerbreak method.

    That is a great idea, the script can easily be added to the application.

    but it is hard for the app to keep running while the phone is rebooting, and note the proper time to chmod the /system/bin while the phone is booting. :P

    RIU doesn't work on the kindle fire (not surprised, it doesn't support flash_image) as soon as I find my old V I will test it on that too.

    works without the space in c++

    that would be impossible to make an app keep going after a reboot.

    Thanks. What would happen if I installed the flash_image binary before running the app...

    Installed cannibal last night. It truly was the easiest thing I've ever done to my phone as far as mods and flashing and such.
