    Default [RECOVERY][KITKAT][4.4.x][OS2SD/INTERNAL][VERY EXPERIMENTAL][f2fs]TWRP2.8.0.0

    New TLS-enabled, multi-mode OS2SD/Internal recovery to play with. Gotta have it for bigsuperROM-thunderc-4.4.4!
    Flash in recovery.
    up to twrp 2.8.0.0, f2fs capable thanks HardLight for the kernel 3.0.101 and f2fs patches.

    the screen timeout works... if it sits long enough the screen will go off. touch it or press a button to bring it back on.
    Except in the partitioner... you can't get the screen back on until it's done. Just wait patiently. It'll come back on and vibrate when it finishes.

    oh, again, FYI... the new TLS kernel switches the old partitions for /system and /data so you can't flash anything but bigsuperROM TLS builds with it right now. Unless someone else starts building or something.

    And the new recovery and recent OS2SD release remap the sd partitions AGAIN... this time to unify the design with HardLight's p500 cm-11 release to make the concept of OS2SD cross-device compatible. I'll be giving them source (and maybe even a full p500 recovery because it'd be tricky to build without using my thunderc device configs.) yep, done all that now.

    For the brave of heart, I haven't tested it much yet except flashing, partitioning, and backup/recovery.
    UMS and ADB work fine.

    Report glitches and happy thoughts.

    Features:

    Title bar shows Internal or OS2SD mode so you know which you're using.

    Seperate partitioners for Internal and OS2SD modes. An internal build will run with OS2SD partitions but not the other way around.

    under Advanced is a button to switch between Internal and OS2SD modes.

    Now with partitioning! Worked for me, needs tested more.
    
    some nice TWRP updates like text wrap.
    
    It'll flash zips that are specially made for internal ok, like the internal ROM zip and the Skinny internal zip. Otherwise everything defaults to new OS2SD partitions (p1 /sdcard, p2 /sd-ext, p3 /system, p4 /data.)
    
    It no longer shows both internal and os2sd partitions as they sometimes conflict while mounting for some reason.
    
    Yes, I mixed up the partition order... no more dirty flashes over previous builds, only later ones.Switch to format partition 2 as either ext4 or swap in os2sd version; the internal version offers to format partition 3 as swap instead.
    
    There is also a regular boring internal version for you who need it. It appears to have some downward compatibility (recent Mirage tested and flashed ok.)
    Download
    IMPORTANT: When you flash the new recovery, reboot recovery to be sure it works, before flashing ROM.

    Thanks to TechVendetta for source or I'd not have messed with TWRP at all.
    Not to mention the original OS2SD partitioning code.
    And androidarmv6 for p500 code, and Dees_Troy and so on for TWRP... I could go on but it's in the rom/kernel OP's anyway.
    Here is a single squashed commit for the multi-OS2SD changes to TWRP including partitioner. there's more now in later commits on the multi branch too.

    WARNINGS

    So far any reports are mostly positive. A couple freezes. Mine freezes sometimes after wiping partitions and pressing back.

    Partitioning takes a while but seems to work fine.
    There is no error checking to see if the os2sd partitions exist, which may throw errors if they don't.
    There is a select button in Advanced for Internal or OS2SD mode.

    FYI:

    If you copy both the ROM and the .md5sum file from the download folder to the card, TWRP will refuse to flash the ROM (or other zips like the TWRP updates) if the same-name md5 doesn't match, saving you a step of checking it manually after pushing it to the card.

    Yeah, funny. My 3vo languishes as daily driver with chopped stock ics and mirage kernel since I won't relinquish the 3d camera. I will fix it eventually but haven't nailed down stable source tree yet.
    So my derelict OV gets all the updates for now.

    Thumbs up Re: [RECOVERY][KITKAT][4.4.x][OS2SD][VERY EXPERIMENTAL]TWRP2.7.1.0_os2sd

    I'm probably too old to be called a punk and my OV's spare but I'll accept anything Mr. Squid would throw at me.

    This recovery worked fine for me. One time, I wiped Dalvik and it hung, but rebooted fine and never again. I did "copy log to SD" but I can't find the "log", then again I don't know how to turn on logging before copying, sorry I couldn't be of any help.

    should be /sdcard/recovery.log
    It always logs. Just usually it's in /tmp/recovery.log
    I wiped system and data after partitioning in an earlier build and it hung. Only the once, though.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Stock TWRP uploaded for internal users.
    Enjoy.
    I need to test it, but I think it has legacy code to handle flashing older ROMs too.
    //edit: HaHa! It successfully flashed the most recent MiRaGe, but failed to flash a 2012 version of that ROM (the assert wasn't coded right in the updater-script says the log.)
    So it'll work with some other ROMs.

    the internal is best for internal, and for os2sd you really need that version...

    os2sd v3 uploaded.
    Strongly recommended upgrade if you're using os2sd. Removes internal system and data from fstabs to fix mounting conflicts. It'll still flash files that mount them by device (/dev/block/mtdblock5 or 6 for system and data, or ROM zips)

    Oh, this recovery is AWESOME!! I feel kinda silly for not having tried previous versions of TWRP...it is that awesome, and actually quite a bit simpler than even CWMT was.

    It's occasionally had its hiccups in trying to flash things, but I'm in the process of simply redownloading those things and trying to reflash them.

    shouldn't have to mount anything.
    use advanced>copy log to sd, mount ums storage, copy recovery.log to pastebin.com, post the link it gives you here and I'll look.

    up-to-date internal version up soon.
    I'll update the os2sd as well since there's minor fstab changes (can't wipe sd-ext in menu to allow it being formatted as swap, else it hangs after formatting any partitions.)

    Bug report: If SD card is completely zero'd (or random data), recovery cannot partition it. Works fine once there is a fat32 present.

    Before randomizing/zeroing the card, I was having trouble with wipes hanging the device after clicking "back" (operation said successful).

    I tested the SD card by writing randomized data and reading it back - the card seems okay but does not meet its class 4 speed rating (wtf? it's a sandisk in retail pack from walmart... shouldn't be fake?)

    I got hangs while there was a swap partition.
    another rom, like mirage, harmonia, or stock, can be used to wipe the card and make the fat partition. Or probably the internal version of this, the option is there, just hadn't tried it.

    I was encountering some weirdness today with "Restore" in the recovery. It seems related to recovery folders being named in ways it doesn't expect. I had manually renamed some backup folders to keep better track of which was which, and I guess it didn't like that much. Clicking on "Restore" instantly killed the recovery app and it reloads itself in a couple seconds.

    Deleting/moving the backup folders it was unhappy with was enough to make it run. The built in file manager had no problem viewing/manipulating them. What was weird though is it got upset with a backup I made with the factory boot loaded in too, which did end up named without the thunderc or whatever suffix it had. Moved that folder out and it was satisfied.

    It was a little frustrating to deal with on the spot while trying to set up for phone activation though, but I think I know now what does it (roughly).

    It would be interesting to see it confirmed by other testing. I didn't have time and don't have the phone now.

    Dunno, twrp is a little odd.
    There is a rename backup function in the recovery, in restore, after you select a backup. Above the swiper and md5 checkbox.
    which should avoid that issue for you.

    I have finally finagled together a dual-mode TWRP to use for both Internal and OS2SD installs.

    It tells you which version is running in the title bar.

    It has a button under Advanced to switch modes.

    The partitioner is different for each mode. It offers sd-ext and swap in Internal mode, and system, swap, and data in OS2SD mode.

    I am finishing tweaking and testing now, soon I will upload for you.
