That happens unless you have ext4 as your second partition. This happens with every recovery apart from amonra

Don't know about colors, but graphics could be changed by disassembling img(use perl script for boot.img for disassembling and mkbootimg for assembling).

If it's not english, ok;

графику можно изменить только если разобрать recovery.img с помощью командного файла perl, который можно найти в google, там же можно найти mkbootimg. с помощью этих инструментов можно собрать и разобрать recovery, дальше остается только заменить графику. цвета изменить нельзя.


Happy translations sir.. if my english is so bad to understand..

alright boss..
Colors couldn't be changed without source modification I don't know where to find.
About graphics:
Requires: ubuntu(will use it for example), mkbootimg, perl scripts from here , thx Techno[=Technolover].
Boot ubuntu, install perl:
in terminal:
sudo apt-get install perl
if not installed but found "similar", copy what it showd(actually exact package name) to line above, so you got something like that pattern:
sudo apt-get install [found package]
or you could try to install it from built-in ubuntu store, hope their "market" won't be so difficult to use.
Pack all tools you got(2 *.pl-s and mkbootimg) and target recovery in one folder, let's name it "reco" and put to home folder to ease of use
in terminal type:
cd reco
then time to unpack recovery.
in the same terminal type:
perl Liquid-MT-Unpack-Bootimg.pl recovery.img
if all is ok, we've got a folder named recovery-ramdisk(there is also gz, but we will only work with folder). In res folder(as I remember) you'll find all graphics. And now only you is responsible for all replaced graphics :D
if you want to use that recovery, it should be packed again to recovery image.

Now, as Techno prefers pure scripts, you should make Liquid-MT-mkbootimg executable:
right click on Liquid-MT-mkbootimg->preferences->permissions tab, then check "allow as executable" or somewhat.
alternatively, it could be done via terminal:
chmod a+x Liquid-MT-mkbootimg
Assuming we are on the same terminal all the time.

then just type in the same terminal:
perl Liquid-MT-Repack-Bootimg.pl recovery.img-kernel.gz recovery.img-ramdisk recovery.img
if I mistyped somewhere, you could manually copy these names in order showed below:
perl [script name] [kernel] [ramdisk or merely folder where we changed graphics] [output file]
then flash recovery you got and that is it.
hope it is more clear(but you could find the same on google! ;[ )

I would like to change the partition from ext3 to ext4 by Gparted.
I tried to save the contents of the ext to copy them later, but some files can not copy because I do not have permission.
How can i do?

mhm its not working for me :wacko:

it seems that the recovery is getting to big - flashing fails
they may have changed something in the script?

bladyle, is your generated recovery working, or did just the build process succeed?
