Hi, I am new to the Liquid MT although this is the fourth Andriod I have had (G1, Blade, Z71, now this). Blade was good, but got nicked in Indonesia :( Z71 ok, ish (it works on 850Mhz 3G in Thailand which is what I use it for). Metal using in the UK.

I can reboot into recovery using adb boot recovery, but is there no key sequence to do it? If not I assume you get some app to allow you to boot into recovery? If so, anyone have a recommend?

I did the acer_ug from 2.2 to 2.3.4 (3.027.01 gen1 emea) then applied the 2.2 recovery. Since I am running the Acer rom, they don't have a reboot into recovery option like CM, etc.

Many thanks in advance, especially for the recovery build. :)

key combination for recovery is the following: Volume Up + Volume Down + Focus + Power => Release Focus & press it again, otherwise download "Quick Boot" because the key combination is quite hard..

Hi all,

I just installed the leak 4.000.07 on my Liquid Metal. Then I wanted to install the recovery 2.2 in order to install Ginger_dmd_4.000.07_aosp.

But when I launch "install_recovery.cmd" my computer does not find my device. Please notice that I obviously activated Debug USB on my phone.

I also want to say that I have already installed the recovery many times for all the custom ROMs and it always worked fine.

I use the same PC (win 7 64bits). I have rebooted my phone several times.

Does anyone has an idea ?

Thanks in advance

It's not an app for your phone.

You use it before you boot up your phone to flash ROM's.

Boot into recovery mode using Volume Up + Volume Down + Focus (Press Camera button Gently) + Power

Finally, here it is.

Only for last 2.3.4 bin. (3.021.01)

For older 2.3.3, use the v2.0.

How to install :

Activate Debug USB on your phone.

Plug your phone to your computer with your USB cable.

Unzip the "RecoveryMT-2.2" folder from the zip file.

Launch "install_recovery.cmd".

Download Link : http://vache-android.com/files/Metal/recov...overyMT-2.2.zip

Report here any issues you may have.

I have gingerbread 2.3.5 installed on an Acer Liquid Metal. Recovery MT-2.2 hangs after the 3 coloured squares appear saying wait, windows slow.. well, after 30 minutes and still nothing my guess is, it is not going to work. So, I tried getting Version 2.0 from the link but this produces an error of "invalid download link" :-( Could we have a new link please....

No, this is for the Acer Liquid Metal only. You need to find the appropriate forum for your device. I'd suggest looking on XDA or Samdroid.

Yup, working fine so far.

It's ClockworkMod so it works with ROM Manager which makes Nandroid's a bit simpler to do.

It doesnt work for me..

The installation of OS_Acer_4.000.13.EMEA.GEN1_A23G_LiquidMT (official) and RecoveryMT-3.0

went fine. Till i tried to install a custom rom.

When i'm trying to open recovery via the key combo i'll get an android standing in a triangle with a

exclamation point, also tried opening recovery via quickboot. But the app closes when i hit recovery.

Anyone knows what went wrong?

Already reinstalled both the os and recovery and did a wipe via the os itselfe (including sd card)

That symbol is standard android recovery symbol, probably cwm isn't installed at all

During the installation it said that it was all "okay" or something..

But suppose that it isnt installed at all, how can i install it properly?

I mean, you can't do anything more that starting the install_recovery

right?

EDIT

Also tried to reinstall the acer driver but withouth anny positive effect.

Some more info:

When i do the key combo, it looks like it wants to start (unzipping the box figure)

but then i get the android standing next to a triangle figure and i'm stuck (need to remove the battery)

Anyone?

I can see it's backed up Android_Secure which is there all your apps that are on the SD Card go.

Although, I'm not sure what Android.img is.
