In this topic i've posted a custom recovery that allows developers to create custom ROMs.

To show this in action, i've deodexed and prerooted the TW 10.4.11.13 update, as well as removing the recovery overwrite function. This should let developers have a look at what's involved in creating them, provide a deodexed base to work from and provide modders with a deodexed ROM to tweak.

A good starting point to more custom ROMs I hope!

Enjoy! :)

I've flashed this on my device and it's running great, but use at your own risk of course. :)

Note that if you are flashing to / from a different region (e.g. WWE<>TW) then as your device is being re-partitioned, you may need to wipe. If the initial flash fails, wipe data, then flash again. If this flash still fails, restart recovery then flash again. :)

Oops, fixed now!

That might work if you've flashed the custom recovery.

Main notable difference is the inclusion of garmin navigation in the tw version, which is not included in the wwe version. WWE will have 2gb memory more due to TW version taking up 2gb for garmin.

I'll probably tweak the WWE version next. This is pre-rooted.

Ok, i used the same method, so i must be doing something wrong, im flashing your rom right now, to make sure it works, but what i did was, i got your rom, unpacked, deleted a bunch of apks from /system/app, modified the build.prop to add some tweaks and then compressed it back to .zip format, then used the signapk.jar to sign it, tried with and without test keys, but when i try to apply it, as soon as it start to verify the package it says instalation aborted on both of my zips.
As i was writing this yours finished to install, no errors, found and it boots alright... So, what did i do wrong?

Regards,

Gilberto

What command line did you use? I use:

java -Xmx4096M -jar signapk.jar -w testkey.x509.pem testkey.pk8 in.zip out.zip

Yes, I really do allocate it 4GB RAM because the zip is huge. ;)

You can adb shell in and cat /cache/recovery/last_log to see what error caused it to fail.

Can you post your .jar and keys? Maybe we have diff keys, or should your recovery accept any key? I gotta sign it again and push it, last_log is your install right now...

The recovery accepts the test keys only.

Here's the files you need - http://content.modac...forgilberto.zip
