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)
    • Backup/Restore
      • Nand backup :: Make a Nand backup, the following partitions are NOT included :
        • Recovery (to avoid restoring old version)
        • Cache (no need to backup imo)
        • Misc (no need to backup imo + restore issues on some phones)
        • Splash1+2 (no need to backup imo + restore issues on some phones)
      • Nand + ext backup :: Make a Nand + ext backup
      • Nand restore :: Restore a Nand backup
      • BART backup :: Make a BART backup (Nand + ext)
      • BART restore :: Restore latest BART backup
    • Flash zip from sdcard :: Flash a zip update file from your sdcard
    • Wipe
      • Wipe data/factory reset :: Wipe /data and /cache
      • Wipe Dalvik-cache :: Wipe Dalvik-cache both on /data and ext
      • Wipe SD:ext partition : Wipe the ext partition on your sdcard
      • Wipe battery stats : Wipe the battery stats in /data
      • Wipe rotate settings : Wipe the sensor settings in /data
    • Partition sdcard
      • Partition SD :: Interactive SD partitioning
      • Repair SD:ext :: Repair the ext partition
      • SD:ext2 to ext3 :: Convert ext2 to ext3
      • SD:ext3 to ext4 :: Convert ext3 to ext4
    • Other
      • Fix apk uid mismatches :: Does extacly that
      • Move apps+dalv to SD :: Moves all apps and Dalvik-cache to sdcard (This will NOT enable apps2sd!)
      • Move recovery.log to SD :: Moves the recovery log file to your sdcard. (Use when you want more detailed recovery log information)
    • Power off :: Powers off your phone
  • Scripts available via adb :
Install

Pre-Requirements :
- unlocked bootloader : How to unlock the bootloader.
- root access : Modaco's superboot.

Check if there's no /system/etc/install-recovery.sh script if you keep booting back in the stock recovery (exclamation mark with a little Android).


via fastboot
Copy recovery-RA-nexus-v1.6.2.img to a location where fastboot can find it.
Boot your phone into fastboot mode (power on while holding the trackball)
Connect your phone via usb to your pc/mac/...
fastboot devices (to make sure that fastboot "sees" your phone)
fastboot flash recovery recovery-RA-nexus-v1.6.2.img

via terminal app
Copy recovery-RA-nexus-v1.6.2.img to the root of your sdcard
start the terminal app
su(press enter)
flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-RA-nexus-v1.6.2.img(press enter)
reboot recovery(press enter)

How to boot in Recovery Mode
  • Boot the phone while holding down the VOLUMEDOWN-key.
  • Navigate to RECOVERY with the the VOLUMEDOWN-key.
  • Press the POWER-key to select.
Download

ALWAYS check the md5sum to make sure the zip isn't corrupted.

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,

Ne0
