CWM Recovery

This is a Recompile of the Stock Recovery with CWM in it, hoping to get CWM working Correctly on the Merit

The CWM Recovery posted at the top is accually for the ZTE Blade so maybe this one will fix the issues that the other one had.

DH, i donated $104.00 to the proclaim fund. I would love to see ur DEV team producing mods for this phone. Considering it is way better than any straight talk phone out there. Solely because of the verizon network. Please let me know if any further donations would help expediate, the DEV process of this phone. Sincerelly, NoQuarter.

It's been shown that the CWM version 5.0.2.0 for the AT&T Avail works on the Merit. Tgese two phones are identical in hardware and only differ in firmware. I don't have the image hosted anywhere yet, but it can be found on android forums. It is upside-down like the one linked.

Here we go.

Fresh compile.

Flash it the same as the previous post

And as a temp zip:

https://dl.dropbox.com/u/72935938/update.zip

Will flash in reg recovery, but as soon as you reboot out of it, it reverts back to whatever you had

Certainly is.

But I fresh-compiled this yesterday while messing w/kernels.

Working on a different recovery now, tho. and cm7 (What a pain...lol)

Just added this one so we have one everyone can get and use. Has ext4 and swap in the kernel for it, so can be expanded on by whoever wants to.

Enjoy!

EXT4 needs work. The kernel hates me. But, it DOES work.

Sometimes this CWM reads/formats/restores the sd-ext partition, sometimes it doesn't

The most 'stable' is the v5 of CWM (Still has the issue of sdcard not usb mounting. But, I do have a 'clue' to what is really going on with it.)

CWM 6 'works', but many features are a bit buggered (Thus the "WIP" in the title)

I'm still working on them. I don't stop until they're done.

Keep watching...
