Final version of ClockworkMod GUI

It is well known that the hardware buttons of the blade are cheap.

When you push them you have the impression they'll break between your fingers.

And this without the fact they do a horrible squeech squeech.

During the normal operation of the phone you don't really need to use the hardware keys.

But when you are in ClockWorkmod you have no choice.

This is why Phoenix_Silver and me we had the idea to create a ClockWorkmod which use the touchscreen.

Handsets supported (each handset needs its own version don't flash the blade one in your handset) :

Zte Blade : Works.

Galaxy Europa : Works.

LG Optimus : Works.

Zte Racer : Works.

Zte Skate : Needs to be tested.

Other Handsets : Don't works.

A Picture of it below:

RacerCWM_242x322.jpg

You can continue to use the hardware keys as usual or use the icons to navigate in the menus.

There's an additional set of icons used, notably, battery indicator, touch screen sensitivity which has three icons:

  1. Left-most icon is paradoxically, increase sensitivity and menu highlight bar will fly - bordering on 'russian roulette' in trying to get the right menu option!
  2. Rightmost icon is paradoxically decrease sensitivity and will slow down the menu highlight bar...
  3. Middle icon resets the sensitivity to the default that most have found comfortable to use.

Also:

  • Battery Monitor - Instead of boring singular colour - there's psychedelic colours used - a rainbow if you like, to indicate the battery charge in use. It gets updated periodically as time goes by with battery power going down/up... When the battery is fully charged and at 100%, the singular colour green is emphasized, then after the 1% drop it goes "waahhayyy" and rainbow colours appear....

Racerboy did the intensive testing of this application. A big thanks to him :)

The application is based on CWM 4.0.1.5

Clockworkmod GUI

Edit : download the file photom_cwm_fastboot_racer.zip.

Edit : i have created the script to install the img with clockworkmod. Download the file photom_cwm_update_racer.zip.

You will find the script in:

At the same url :

Clockworkmod GUI

WARNING these img are for Gen1 Racers; don't flash them if your Racer is gen2

You can flash the imgs with fastboot :

Fastboot flash recovery recovery_photom_XX.img

Fastboot reboot

Or install the update zips with the actual Cwm

P.S. : if there are enough interested people we could do a gen2 version.

Big thanks to everyone who was involved with this mod.

I'm in agreement with gagan, the screen calibration is excellent.

Racerboy is correct in what he's saying, BUT....

If you have the necessary information about the ZTE Link and the kernel used, rom version, clockwork recovery etc... we may be able to port it to that device. :)

Cheers,

i think theirs a keymapping issue in 4.0.1.5 if you install a fresh version rather than updating within CWM from older version 4.0.1.4 to 4.0.1.5

Nope, I turn back version for the same reason when 4.0.1.5 first get out and now just put update from 4.0.1.4 to this GUI version (just update img, not completely new update.zip) and green button is not working again. When tried "key test" all buttons give something except green which is completely ignored :(

Can someone make this GUI version based on 4.0.1.4 or find out why green button is completely ignored on 4.0.1.5?

img. is a complete wipe so doing the update.zip from within CWM is updating the existing installed version...:)

try it install 4.0.1.4.img then use update.zip 4.0.1.5 whether it be the touch screen version what this thread is about or the original CWM and install through CWM, keys will be fine
