I have yeah..didnt think of that..altered vm heap & screen density to 230..guess that alters md5 sum when checked?

Reinstalled 2.5.1.8 so now thats recognised

EDIT Its now accessing my nan backups on SD when I hit Restore Prev... so making some progress..great stuff!!

Guess best way to go is to put RLS8 onto SD then allow RM to Install Firmware..should all work a treat from there now Clockwork has been recognised?

This is brilliant Sebastian! I've been fannying around for weeks trying to pluck up the courage to get a new ROM in. I've now got Clockwork installed without having to open Terminal once! Thanks very much.

Anyone getting Force-closes - Re-install the Recovery Manager APP (from APK) - Kill all processes and re-launch.

Hey Sebastian,

I just wanted to thank you very very much for your great work. This app looks really promising - I am totally new to this modaco and the ZTE Blade aka OSF but I am already amazed by this forum and community.

Gonna try this soon when I switch from my JJ RO.. ehrm firmware to the next one to test out which one is the best ;)

And I loved your FAQ.

Thank you,

tony

Ok, i've installed the .26b now and placed the clockworks 2.5.1.8 in the sd card and the installation of recovery was successful. (though it still calls it "Unrecognized recovery").

By the way, why doesnt the firmware tab work for stock roms?

I noticed your not using a UK Blade... so I have couple of questions that might help us out..

Where did you get your device?

Have you used any of the TPT updates to resize your partitions?

do you know what size you recovery partition is?

To answer the last question you might need to look at your /proc/mtd file...

Interesting, it looks like its not managed to SU correctly... tho I'd expected it to actually fail to even get as far as that before it fell over....

I'll download Modaco R4 and give it a go on my device, see if I cant replicate that and get to the bottom of it...

Hmmm, well i bought my device from Wind in Greece. Its a TFT 256mb one which i then used the hungarian-512-fix to get it to 512mb.

Except that time i switched it to 512 i never again used TPT. (idk, i never needed to).

Unrecognised Recovery [solved]

I had the same issue. The I went to http://android.podtwo.com/recovery/ as directed in second post and downloaded and installed recovery-clockwork-blade-2.5.1.8.img and it was recognized. Earlier I had dowloaded and installed my recovery from http://android.modaco.com/content/zte-blad...overy-oled-tft/

Just out of curiosity, I compared the MD5s of both recoveries and they were different, so maybe the one in http://android.podtwo.com/recovery/ is a recent binary and hence it is recognized and not the old one available in http://android.modaco.com/content/zte-blad...overy-oled-tft/

EDIT

Seb seems to have updated the recovery image at http://android.modaco.com/content/zte-blad...overy-oled-tft/ too, so its only an issue for ppl who've got an earlier version of 2.5.1.8 (I have old version of 2.1.5.8 downloaded from the thread, and I swear its MD5s are different ;) )

Hey Seb, just installed 0.26b, tried installing a couple of updates and all working fine. A few suggestions:

  1. Under Firmware tab, Install Firmware and Install Firmware Update seems redundant. They can be replaced by any one of follows
    • Two seperate entries "Install Firmware" and "Install Firmware Addons/Updates" just like now, but "Install Firmware" displays zips >50mb and "Install Firmware Addons/Update" displays zips <50mb
    • A single entry "Install Firmware", on click displays list of ZIPs just like now, on select asks you to "wipe data/settings". User can select to wipe for firmware installs or can leave it unchecked for addon installation

[*]Maybe the unimplemented entries can be disabled/greyed-out for now

hmm, no thats right, I was wondering if maybe your recovery image was a different size... OK, can you run the logcat command and see what its saying?

Oh which ROM are you using?

That seems to do the work, recovery is now recognized.

Somehow i had "old" 2.5.1.8 or something?
