    I'm getting errors whenever to open a folder to flash a zip: Couldn't open directory
    No files found.

    I've ejected the sdcard and checked it via computer and the files are there, yet the phone doesn't find them. Problem did not exist on v1.0. Was about to flash a14. Wiped Cache, Dalvik, boot, system (everything but data).

    Edit: found a temp workaround by moving files to root of sdcard via computer. I'm just glad the opti uses an external sdcard, rather than internal sdcard (can't eject if phone stops working). All good now. Flashed ROM and back in business.
    That is very strange, especially so because I can't reproduce it. The even weirder part is NO CODE was changed between 1.0 and 1.0.1.
    Hey Drew... This is the same issue I've been having in the most recent (unreleased) version of the Kindle Recovery (github issue) as well, still working on what's actually causing it....

    Edit: I'm hoping to have this fixed sometime before the end of the week, I've narrowed down when I broke it but not exactly where, bit of a failure on my part lol...

    Thanks Drew, downloading now. Can't wait to use it. The Recovery was the only thing not matching my red UI theme and now I can have a Touch Recovery and a matching UI ^_^
    You like the color red, you say? Well how about a sneak peek of things to come (notice the touch UI controls):

    Hey drew just had a idea, is it doable/possable to build a tiny OS .Img file you flash to the recovery
    say doshell/mc style file system (Wich this has) Im assuming the recovery .img use the kernel From android? Or its own tiny kernel?? . Boot the tiny os from the recovery then use a form of script Ala 2sd but from "recovery-data-sdcard" effectively readdressing the partitions of the phone allowing use of them all. The use of the screen_grab (or whatever that command was we talked about a few days ago) maybe run Linux apps with full screen? but like old school from the command line/shell, sound driver,wifi driver, keyboard/mouse interface. (Maybe take a page from hackerskeyboard(only see thru) and dosbox)?????????

    Edit: this ^ is what happens to a nerd without a laptop/computer they steal their moms toaster and hack the **** out of it until it installs something and boots

    Uhh, no.

    If you want to run REAL Linux apps/programs, use a REAL Linux box. Running Linux programs in Android recovery? Not likely.

    Theoretically, it should be possible to use the sound driver in recovery (recovery-based music player?) but that's not something even remotely on the drawing board right now.

    True and I agree but could it still be done? I mean the most basic os and yes a custom ui just for s and giggles. I mean it would totally be a novelty item

    There are a million many better things I could do with my time than to turn ClockworkMod Recovery into a fully-functional OS. There's barely enough room for the recovery image as it is!

    So you want me to build a recovery-based web browser and media player?

    That'll be $500,000 and a crack team of developers, please.

    Seriously though, you're barking up the way wrong tree. Better stop before something flies out and bites you in the face.

    I'm thinking of old school stuff. Like arachne,lynx some old school doslike mediaplayer
    ....I know your doing lots
    How big is the recovery partition? And is it negotiable?

    I know a oldschool lynx text based browser is very small.... idk I got a ton crazy ideas what I need to to is become a good a programmer as you then go nuts with it

    Ahhhh shucks! Lets face it I just want to turn anything and everything. Into a operating system......is that so wrong?
    I was a fan of opengem and arachne early boot disk/media tech.....now here I am like a moth to the flame and this recovery just screams BOOT ME!.....so I did and love it!

    Sorry to pester just got high energy curiosity

    The fact of the matter is we are running out of space with the themes as it is; no it's not negotiable without losing the space in other partitions such as data or system (this would obviously be counterproductive). Wifi for downloading something (a zip) is one thing (config would be a hassle but it's actually possible), we do NOT need or really even have a use for Audio and it's not worth the headache to try to add it, end of story.

    There's a guide here: HOWTO: Unpack, Edit, and Re-Pack Boot Images - Android Wiki

    If you're on Linux, a handy little program called abootimg will help

    [INFO]Release Announcement:
    Cannibal Open Touch v1.0.2 has been released! With v1.0.2, the Colorific theme engine now loads sets of touch button images based on the current theme. Unfortunately these are not hot-swappable, so your theme changes will not be fully seen until a successive reboot of recovery (AFTER changing themes).[/INFO]

    Only one little issue for me on this fantastic recovery is that the touch buttons' input response zone seems to go the entire length of the screen. That seems a little excessive, even for my Shrek fingers. For instance, touching on the second text option triggers whichever action button my fnger is directly over. If it happens to be the enter button, then my phone starts doing whatever action was highlighted at the time and it freaks me out. Nothing I can't get used to, but could it easily be adjusted to maybe just the bottom third of the touchscreen? Knowing the power this thing has, I am afraid to try swiping down, but someone else might.

    Also, the install works just fine in Terminal Emulator for those who don't want to fire up ADB or don't have a computer available. Just be sure to enter the command and your filepath exactly; renaming the file to "recovery.img" helps make it easier.

    Drew, I'm having the same problem with 1.0.2, when I try to flash a new rom it says "could not open directory" "file not found". Reason?
