Pardon my "noobishness" but can I just use z4root to root it then apply the clockworkmod and then apply Paul's custom rom?

Haven't tried z4root..not sure how it works..but your step was right..backup with clockworkmod first then apply Paul's MCR..so that you have option to revert back to stock rom..

So I did the clockwork mod install, backed up the original partitions to the SD card and then flashed the custom MCR i made. Everythings fine thanks to Pauls good work but how do I recover the original OS on my commtiva if I have any warranty issues? ADB doesnt seem to see the device anymore!!! Panic!

Hi Paul,
I've build my own custom rom from my nandroid backup..I could get the phone to on but not registering to any network and the wifi tether still got error when I turn it on..then I've found out that inside the hidden partition there is full apns-conf.xml and some other interesting thing..there is also init.cust.sh..could you look into it?

Hi all - I did the backup of the original partitions using the cat /dev/mtd commands and I have 10 assorted .img files on my sdcard caled mtd0 to mtd10. I didnt do a ROM backup using clockwork though :P

How do I write these files back to the device to restore to original setup? furthermore, without making a note of the original partition table, how do I know which file belongs to which partition? Is one of these files like a standard rom? Can I just rename and restore using clockwork?

any help you can give is greatfully appreciated ;)

Busybox will not install. I am rooted and have clockwork recovery installed but can not get busybox to install.

EDIT: I got it to install by doing it line by line. Now are their any other custom ROMs for this and is there a way to OC this? I have the N700 WiFi 3G model.

Hi!
I saw there post about porting Clockwork recovery on FIH-FM6 clone(Commtiva N700 / Spice Mi700 / ViewSonic ViewPad 7 / Camangi FM600) and try follow all the instructions.
I have noname brand device(same as mention above) with Android 1.6 onboard and try to upgrade it to 2.2.

First problem was with rooting device - SuperOneClickv(1.4 and 1.5.5) didn't work - when process finish and try su, it says that library 'libbinder.so' not found.
I solve it by rooting device with universalandroot - su now worked.

Second problem, which stopped me - installing Clockwork recovery.
I wrote image with flash_image - and when rebooting in recovery mode it write
"Booting Recovery From Flash" and hangs.

As I think - this because of I havn't additional mtd8 partition "misc2"

# cat /proc/mtd
cat /proc/mtd
dev: size erasesize name
mtd0: 00500000 00020000 "boot"
mtd1: 00200000 00020000 "misc"
mtd2: 00080000 00020000 "splash"
mtd3: 00500000 00020000 "recovery"
mtd4: 00500000 00020000 "ftm"
mtd5: 01000000 00020000 "hidden"
mtd6: 00060000 00020000 "dbgmsk"
mtd7: 0a000000 00020000 "system"
mtd8: 06400000 00020000 "cache"
mtd9: 0ab80000 00020000 "userdata"

Anybody know workaround to correct install this new recovery?
May be need some changes in recovery or reformatting nand flash partiotions?


Additional issues, that a mention with this device:

1) Native recovery, shipped with device, suggest only reboot and install update.zip, but no keys are working.
Also it prints
E:Can't open /cache/recovery/command

2) When trying install recovery from ROMManager, pressing "Flash ClockworkMod Recovery" -
it cheking smth about 5 seconds and then nothing happend.

Hi all. Can anybody provide another link to the flash image.zip file. I've been trying to download it from that rotten uploading.com site for 3 days now, but get the messages either the server holding the file is busy or I have exceeded my download limit even when I haven't downloaded any thing and it's driving me nuts. It's taken me 3 days to download Clockwork recovery and at this rate it's going to take me 3 years to download the rest!!
