    {New Recovery} Raidzero's Custom SPR-based RZRecovery

    This is worth checking out! Raidzero has been actively developing and updating his new recovery, which is based off of SPR. Like SPR, it is extremely stable; but it adds a TON of new features - overclocked to 1.1 ghz (so it flashes fast); allows for battery charging while in recovery; don't have to rename files "update.zip"; can wipe all partitions; custom colors; etc, etc.

    I have been using it since v 0.1.4 (he's up to 0.1.8 now, and testing 0.1.9), and i gotta say, it is quite impressive! give it a whirl!!! you can simply flash it as a .zip file thru your current recovery.

    i'm posting this with RZ's permission, as it is something that i think needs to be spread across the Droid world. the main thread for his recovery is: [Recovery] RZR SPR-based *update.zips-battery charging-more* - Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum and, i have copied and pasted the entire OP from his thread in the second post, below. it has all the particulars, as well as the download links. enjoy!!!

    -=No automatic backup when installing a rom.tgz=-
    -=Pretty colors =-

    -=Battery charging!=-

    -=Flashlight (just for fun)=-
    -=android_secure nandroid / wipe support=-
    -=keyboard backlight option=-
    ---------------------------------

    Background
    So as you probably know, I love SPR for its rom.tgz support. I decided to dive into it and start modding it, so I got the source from DroidMod.

    The first thing I did was install my custom overclock kernel to get SPR running at 1.1ghz, which greatly sped up my ROM install routine. Next, I changed the colors to blue instead of orange. Then I got rid of the automatic backup function when installing a rom.tgz. (For my ROM this makes sense since one of the features is on the fly themeing from recovery - metamorph style). After that I made it accept arbitrary update.zip's by giving the user a selection of update.zips on the sdcard to install. I verified that it would accept unsigned update.zips. After these changes I added some functions to install arbitrary kernel and recovery images from recovery, in img format. I believe a kernel and ramdisk should be united, as mine are made for each other. If you install an anykernel package it will extract yiour current ramdisk and put it with a new kernel. I don't like this, so I changed it (NOTE: you can still install anykernel updater kernel packages if you wish). I did the same thing for recovery images. Finally, as you might expect, I spend a as LOT of time in recovery. This is the big one, with help from trevorj of DroidMod, I enabled battery charging while in recovery. He sent me a version of SPRecovery that he had reworked to include battery charging. The only problem was it required all kinds of alien technology to run. I had to install a squashfs image on my sdcard that this version of SPR used and contained all the extra functionality that I did not need or want (wifi, ubifs, squashfs, kernel modules like crazy). I isolated what charged the battery and stuck it in my recovery image, which is just a single img file or SBF for ease of use. Without trevorj, none of the charging stuff would be possible.

    Screenshots:

    Coming soon. Have to make some big cuts because of the new image in posts limit on DF :/


    Changelog:

    Code:
    Update 2.0.3Instead of formatting partitions during RZR restore, simply erase their contents.

    I do this for fun, make no guarantees and accept no responsibility for anything you do with my files.

    Credits:
    Again, I have to say this could NOT have happened without trevorj of DroidMod. The whole charging concept and execution was his idea. These are my files from my ROM but I would have no idea which ones I needed to get if it weren't for Trevor already doing this in March 2010. The script that launches and monitors the battery daemon was originally written by him, modified by me to fit into my recovery image.

    Big thanks to:
    Tim-o-tato, pandroid, moset, yankindasouth, tanknspank, thizzmark, sgtguthrie, segdoh49, tp76, liquid0624, girluvsdroid for testing and encouragement. cvpcs also gave me some ideas, which will be impletemented in his own way when RCR is released. For now, enjoy RZR!


    Don't enjoy it?
    I provide a clockwork version 2.5.0.1 SBF to easily go back to CWM.

    I have been testing/using RZ Recovery for a few months now and by far the best available recovery for the Original Droid - last night I was attempting to restore a backup and RZ Recovery informed me I didn't have enough battery to complete the process, asked that I plug in my charger or USB and after I did it continued to restore my backup - Raid is doing a great job with his recovery and his Kernels and Rom are something else to check out

    Agreed. This is an excellent "upgrade" from sprecovery.

    Will be flashing the newest version tonight.

    Sent from my GimpDroid (Installed by RZR).

    2.0 is so good. I'm still amazed unlike CW I can boot into recovery the first time I try.

    If you're a Droid user, and you're not using this yet, why not?

    If you're rooted, anyway. :D
