24/Feb 1.6.2 - RA-nexus Recovery Image

62 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

This is a custom recovery based on Cyanogen's recovery source with a lot of things added by me. The purpose of this recovery is to avoid using adb by accessing all features directly from the menu.

Use the trackball (up+down) to navigate through the menu, press the trackball to select items. Use the Volume-down key to go back to a previous menu.

Always check recovery.log before posting your issues!

Please make sure that your ROM supports apps2sd if you plan to use the ext-features! (/system/sd MUST be available in the ROM)

Features

  • full ADB access in recovery mode
  • Awesome Care-Bear version! (Blame packetlss for talking me into it ;))
  • Busybox v1.15.3
  • Kernel with ext3 + ext4 support
  • HW-Key navigation (Trackball + Volume-key) option
  • Extended menu :
    • Reboot system now :: reboot your phone
    • USB-MS Toggle :: enable/disable USB mass storage (use when the phone is connected to your PC)

Once your rooted you can flash it permanently several ways. But make sure to do the superboot first.

I chose to flash it permanently using fastboot

'fastboot flash recovery /path/to/good/recovery.img' after I superbooted. I noticed before I superbooted that I was going back to stock after another reboot.

Hold the volume down button and hit the power button (while holding the side volume down button). You should see the bootloader screen (with the word unlocked on top).

Well if the phone is plugged in to the computer you can just do

adb reboot recovery (atleast that's how I accessed it) :)

Can anyone confirm if the nand backup includes the system/lib dir?

I used unyaffs.exe on my system.img backup and the lib dir was not extracted, i wasn't sure if it's unyaffs failing or the nand backup?

Cheers,

Hi, i did all above, but now while pressing the power button and the track ball gives me the "old" bootloader.

Any help?

EDIT. I think i found it. You need to enter RECOVERY from the menu.

Hopefully someone might be able to help. My Haptic Feedback/Vibrate was broken since I took it out of the box - didn't really notice since I normally have it turned offf anyway. HTC have said they will replace my handset - I did ask about unlocked bootloader but the support guy didn't really understand - anyway he has sent me the label for the package and the uPS truck will collect on Monday for me. Now I'm hoping because its hardware, that if everything is stock except for the Unlocked bootloader they will replace for me anyway. -

I have a stock Rom from Paul, but I've flashed this excellent recovery image - Do you have a stock recovery that I can flash back to stock with? I know the stock recovery still has an Apply Update.zip option so was going to change the recovery back using ADB, then flash the unrooted stock ROm and should be all good - Hope you or someone can help.

Brilliant stuff and I will be flashing your recovery back onto my new nexus hopefully when it arrives.

Edit - Got the stock recovery from the Stock Rom with seperate images :)
