B8 looks good ! I say that is a recovery image for the masses. Who do we need to shake to get a ZTE Light forum here on Modaco ?
In B8, the adbd, is that one you compiled from cryanogen or did you extract that from a romdump ? (i.e. why doesn't this one hang on adb shell)
Now that I can build my own recovery image (and thanks for your github code, I see how you got your init.rc in there), what barriers can I expect in building a new boot.img and system.img. I tried a make bacon instead of make recoveryimage but it got a fair way through before failing with a java compilation error. I'm yet to find time and go back to dig further.
Thanks again for all your help by the way, especially since you don't even have a ZTE light :-)
Your welcome, I hope to one day get a ZTE light.. assuming they ever make it here..
to be honest, its a NASTY NASTY hack I'm put in, making a symlink to /sbin/sh, the recovery ADBD should point to /sbin/sh because the recovery program (even the 'offical' one) mounts stuff to /system/ when its doing to recovery... so if you start the recovery off and then do an ADB your using the rom's shell, not the recovery shell, could cause problems.
I'm not sure if there is any point in feeding it back to ZTE as the language barrier seems to hard to break
I did not really look that closely at the init.rc scripts in the boot, but ZTE made a total mess of the ones on the Blade, I'd expect they did the same with the Light.. tho maybe they have learned better....
I'd say you should get a Forum for the device, apart from Paul I'm not sure who you should bug tho... try posting in here
The hardest part of messing about with Android is getting your build environment set up right, having the right version of Java is allways a good one.. I spent about 2 hours this afternoon messing about with another project before I realized it was because I was using Java 1.6 rather than 1.5 ...
Gingerbread needs a 64bit build environment, so I'm going to have to start the long and painful process all over again soon
