    Well those of u curious to know what clockwork works

    I installed the clockwork for the nook color?
    Yeah seriously
    It boots properly. All buttons work properly. the only problem it has is mounting the system partitions and sd card. So I'll try to look into that. Any recovery devs out there? Let's make a universal generick recovery
    The one reason why the nook recovery works is that the file is small. The ftii doesn't have a big recovery partition. Id say max is 1.8mb?

    I think need to make the fstab file match what your 'mount' output is.
    My Brain Hurts: Porting Clockwork Recovery to New Devices

    I don't recall if the file is /etc/fstab or something else

    if you can adb, see if you at least have the filesystem support or if you need to include additional kernel modules.

    This is important news for the Flytouch 2. The missing clockwork recovery has been a stumbling block to recommending Infotmic devices, which are superior to TCC8902 in raw hardware

    I'll look into it more tomorrow since I'm off. I'm glad to know I got somewhere. The nook color clockwork installs just nothings mounting. A couple tweeks to that clockwork and we r golden

    i seen this the other day
    (honeycomb ported to nook color)
    so if the recovery installed correctly to the flytouch...is there a chance someone could modify it to install on the flytouch? these two devices seem to have similiarity in hardware.

    I've pretty much called it a failure. I moved onto other projects on the flytouch 2. but if u wanna give it a shot. Just intall rom manager and install the nook color img. The recovery is harder to tamper with on the newer updates since the partitions were modified to improve performance. Only way install custom software is through burn tool to force installation.

    rgocal,

    Flashing clockwork via rom manager is successfull (message). When I try to but into it using some key combinations, it stalls at the first "infoTMIC" splash of the bootloader...

    How did you get it to run, please?

    Oh, I tried the two nook color recoveries and the viewsonic gtab one.

    Blessings,
    Shahar

    Do you think that it is due to partitioning issues? Koush, would you mind chipping in? How do we get Rom Manager to flash it correctly (even if it is not yet a fully compatible recovery)?

    I think that we can know the partition table using 'fdisk -l /dev/block/mmcblk0' or something like that.

    This device is in dire need of a recovery image because we kinda only have official roms and at least the latest one doesn't allow to start adbd from the ui.

    What about 2.2? We wanna see this happen.

    You do it very, very long time. I can't wait anymore and builded
    cwmrecovery.

    recovery.fstab contain
    Code:
    # mount point<->fstype    device    <-->[device2]
    
    /cache      yaffs2      cache
    /data       yaffs2      userdata
    /ramdisk    mtd         ramdisk
    /kernel     mtd         kernel
    /sdcard     vfat        /dev/block/mmcblk0p1        /dev/block/mmcblk0
    /system     yaffs2      system
    /sd-ext     ext4        /dev/block/mmcblk0p2
    
    
    And little patch on nandroid.c
    Into function nandroid_backup added
    Code:
        if (0 != (ret = nandroid_backup_partition(backup_path, "/ramdisk")))
            return ret;
        if (0 != (ret = nandroid_backup_partition(backup_path, "/kernel")))
            return ret;
    
    Into function nandroid_restore added
    Code:
        if (restore_boot && 0 != (ret = nandroid_restore_partition(backup_path, "/ramdisk")))
            return ret;
        if (restore_boot && 0 != (ret = nandroid_restore_partition(backup_path, "/kernel")))
            return ret;
    
    recovery_ui.c get from nook color sources and add it to BoardConfig.mk

    build is here;)
