Build ClockworkMod Recovery the Old Fashioned Way

1cwm

Yesterday, we covered a guide by XDA Recognized Developer Dees_Troy on compiling TWRP recovery. As powerful, user friendly, and customizable as TWRP is, some people still prefer other recoveries such as the popular ClockworkMod Recovery.

Yes, we’re aware that there’s the automated CWM Recovery Builder, which turns the whole affair into a point-and-click affair. But let’s face it: The truly nerdy like doing things the old fashioned, hands-on way. It builds character, teaches us a little about development, and is just plain rewarding to do. So once you’ve decided that you wish to compile CWM the old fashioned way, how exactly do you go about doing so? Depending on your cu. . . READ ON »

Start to Finish Guide on APK Modding and Theming

definite guide

So much of our Android experience is dependent on modifying various APKs. Modding, theming, ROM and app developing in one way or another often require some sort of tweaking, modifying, or refashioning of an APK. So XDA Senior Member XperienceD has decided to create a ‘Definite APK Modding and Theming’ thread intended for everything to do with modding and theming.

XperienceD starts this thread off with a thorough, ‘all-in-one’ guide on APK decompiling and recompiling, signing and zipaligning, .9PNGs, and flashable CWM zip files. Categorized into these respective sections, the guide comprehensively covers every tool, step, and code with sufficient detail and covered mi. . . READ ON »

Unofficial CWM Recovery Port for the Ouya

Ouya_Family_large

Some time ago, we gave the Android-powered Ouya game console a place in our forums. Since then, we’ve not heard too much about this curious little non-phone/tablet device other than a guide to help users connect via ADB, sideload apps, and obtain root access and some as of yet fruitless efforts towards UART and Play Store access.

Luckily, this development lull has been interrupted thanks to XDA Forum Member mybook4, with some help from Forum Member sonofskywalker3 and Recognized Developer rayman. Mybook4 managed to port an unofficial CWM build to the device.

To install the CWM port on your own device, you need to first achieve root. To do this, visit Forum Member tcollum‘. . . READ ON »

Having a good recovery makes the process of modifying, tweaking, maintaining, and backing up your Android device much easier, so that you don’t have to go through the procedures manually. Installing a recovery is probably one of the main activities for a newly rooted phone, along with installing new firmware and a couple of other essential mods. But what happens when your new phone doesn’t have a CWM to install?

The ‘How to Port CWM to New Devices‘ guide at XDA-University thoroughly covers the procedure of doing exactly what you think: porting CWM to new devices. It’s not an entirely simple, requiring a suitable build environment, but fear not, as the guide does do a good job . . . READ ON »

Team UtterChaos Releases Their Touch Recovery Source

Touch Recovery

Caring is sharing and in the world of AOSP Android development, that’s more than a motto, it’s basically a rule. More ROMs have been forged from the depths of repositories like Github than any other single source out there and ROMs don’t even comprise all the source code in Android repositories.

It is with the caring and sharing in mind that XDA Senior Member Napster and XDA Recognized Developer DooMLoRD of Team UtterChaos have merged their Touch versions of ClockworkMod Recovery and have released the repositories containing their source code to the public.

Their mission? To give the code to any developers who want or need it in order to port the super nifty touch recovery to phones that do no. . . READ ON »
