You can install any custom rom yes. My update.zip is to make sure that on the Rogers rom, that Malez doesn't get deleted every time you reboot your phone.

The ROM I have posted (search for my topics), that is the official Rogers ROM, however it's modded (just the installer script) to install from Malez.

I am attempting get to stock 2.1 so i can install rogers ver. 2.2. I have gotten to the point where the instructions say I have to remove Malez-recovery. The phone boots up ok but I get a bad check if I try to update to 2.2. The problem I am having is the remote restore of the recovery.img. I managed to run adb shell then open malez. then i am stuck as to what I should do. Could some do a walk-through of this part? thanks

I can confirm that this fix is working on a Fido Acer Liquid E running stock 2.2 Froyo. I am currently flashing it to LCR-F 2.0 now that malez' recovery works due to this fix :lol:

Hi Everybody,

I just used the Fido stock ROM (2.2 froyo : 4.004.04_PA_FIDO) back after a LCR 1.2.

The flash has been ok in Malez.

I'm just unable to use tethering (wifi or USB) : process com.android.settings error.

Could this be because I still have baseband : A1-05.01.05 ?
Maybe the fido rom (is not an EMEA) has a pb with this baseband ?

Anyone ?

Thanks
Vixdee

I have the Rogers Liquid E and I'm on the official 2.2. Malez 6.1 installs fine but when I boot into recovery I get the triangle with the ! in it with the Android dude. If I press the home button it takes me into the stock recovery. Will it work if I try to install the modified Malez' recovery you have posted? Thanks

Ok... so it's been months and I have yet to upgrade to Froyo. Every time I try, I either get an error on the actual flash or it hangs on the Android boot screen. Thank goodness for Nandroid's recovery.

Could someone give me a step by step on getting back to Factory? I'm retarded when it comes to Androids :)

A description of this 'fix' so people know what to do. I returned to stock and realized what the fuss was all about.

In the shipped Acer Liquid E configurations, the recovery partition is designed to be rewritten upon normal bootup of the system.

To install a custom recovery permanently on a stock Acer Liquid E with Android 2.2, this bootup behavior has to be altered. This behavior can be altered by changing the affected file alone, or by flashing a custom ROM which replaces the relevant files.

To install Malez recovery, you can still run the install script, provided that you DO NOT REBOOT the phone into normal bootup mode when the script asks during fastboot, after the custom recovery image has already been installed. Now you will want to unplug the device (and pull the battery) to turn the thing off. Then you can reboot the phone into recovery mode (vol -, camera, power -> phone vibrates three times). Rememeber that to press the camera button, you need to depress fully so you trigger the camera action, not the camera focus. If successful, you will boot into Malez recovery, where you can install a custom firmware of your choice. After the custom firmware is installed, you do not have to worry about the recovery being overwritten.

In recovery mode, navigate using the volume buttons, and select with the menu button. Back returns to the previous option.


Not sure if the update.zip removed install_recovery.sh, flash_image, or altered init.rc.

Will this work for the latest Fido update Acer_Liquid_E_4.004.12_PA_FIDO?

Android version is 2.2.2, baseband A1-05.01.07, if that matters.

Edit: I used the "auto root" option from the official Malez Recovery page. Malez Recovery didn't stick but it did give me root, which was all I wanted.

if you just want to root install malez recovery and don't let the phone reboot pull the battery put it back in and boot the phone in recovery, Once the phone reboots you will loose the recovery

i have created an alternative automatic recovery installer. I have sent you a link by PM.
Everything is automatic and recovery should remain in place, even after the reboot.
Unfortunatly , noone contacted me to test it. Keep me informed.
