PhilZ Touch: ClockWorkMod Advanced Edition für Android (Root)

Firmware und OS

In Sachen Recovery gibt es für gerootete Android-Smartphones keine sehr große Auswahl. Entweder wird das CWM- oder das TWRP-Recovery installiert. Mein Favorit ist bisher das TWRP-Recovery, weil es sehr gut auf Touchscreens verschiedenster Größe optimiert ist und auch noch Themes und massig Funktionalität für das Spielkind in mir bietet. Phil3759 hat vor einigen Tagen im XDA-Forum erst mit diversen Screenshots seine Modifikation des CWM-Recovery angekündigt und bietet seit kurzem auch einen Download für das Nexus 4 an.

Modifiziert wurde unter anderem das Touch-Interface:

  • toggle between 3 touch modesFULL TOUCHDOUBLE TAP to validate and SEMI TOUCH (scroll but no touch validation)
  • written from scratch full touch code
  • safe full touch : no wrongly validations while scrolling
  • when you set full touch mode, it defaults to optimized settings for menu height, scroll sensitivity and touch accuracy (you still can alter them manually later)
  • adjust scroll sensitivity in a huge palette
  • adjust menu height in a huge palette
  • adjust touch accuracy
  • 27 color settings for each of the 6 GUI parts + 5 alpha transparency settings user custom background png can be selected in addition to 27 solid colors option
  • show / hide background icon
  • show / hide bottom virtual buttons
  • show/hide + set color and transparency for menu line separators to match solid color themes, like Black…
  • set number of bottom log rows to show
  • Friendly Log View and pause on logs: no more miss logs during zip installs
  • auto dim screen after user configurable delay
  • auto turn off screen after user configurable delay
  • adjust brightness and turn off screen with a gesture action
  •  show/hide clock and remaining battery %, even during nandroid operations
  • clock and battery stats now effectively refresh every 30 seconds and during nandroid operations
  • toggle vibrator on/off when using bottom virtual buttons
  • toggle key repeat for volume up/down scrolling when maintained pressed
  • set time zone + 30mn offset: correct time can now be set for nandroid backup path and clock
  • capture recovery screen shots with a gesture action
  • one file to save all settings
  • backup and restore settings file
  • reset to default settings option
  • prompt to restore your settings from a backup when they are wiped by a new ROM install
  • option to auto restore your settings from a backup without a prompt
  • all toggles are applied live, without restart of recovery (except reset of stock CWM background image)
  • toggle menu options are automatically right aligned and menu text left aligned based on device display size
  • configurable gesture actions: double tap, slide right/left, long press/lift, long press/move, can be associated with any of: show log, change brightness, blank screen, capture screen shot, launch Aroma File Manager

Und natürlich wurden auch noch diverse Funktionen hinzugefügt:

  • browse phone with root access using full GUI in Aroma File Manager
  • terminal access from recovery with root access through Aroma File Manager
  • Multi Zip Install menu: check multiple zip files to install in a row
  • Custom Install Zip Mode: set a default folder to start with + browse backward up to the root
  • exFAT + ext4 support in recovery for external sd
  • TWRP backup and restore support, include full md5 sum support (single and multivolume, compressed and non compressed formats)
  • support .android_secure backup/restore from external storage and exfat partitions
  • optional reboot after custom backups/restores
  • sd-ext support (ext4)
  • nandroid backups support /preload in backup and restore jobs (custom and stock backups)
  • set special nandroid settings: time zone, toggle md5 check for lightning fast backup and restore, toggle /preload backup and restore,enable nandroid compression using pigz (multi-cpu gzip compression) and choose ors backup target volume
  • you can cancel any nandroid operation with back button
  • create from current ROM or from a pre-existing nandroid backup (based on boot, /system and optionally /preload)
  • nandroid backup path now will be named with current ROM id from build.prop (ro.modversion, then ro.romversion, then
  • custom backup and restore job list: backup and restore freely any partition combo (include modem and efs) from old nandroid folder or new custom_backup one
  • custom restore option to browse from /sdcard/0 (android 4.2 workaround)
  • backup/restore EFS in both tar + img formats, now with time incremented copies for both tar and .img
  • support flash modem.bin image files in addition to custom modem.img files, now support for multiple *.bin versions under dedicated folder
  • during custom restore, you can see the contents of the folder you want to restore from
  • delte custom or TWRP backups from recovery menu
  • full wipe before flashing new ROM: wipe user data + format /system and /preload. SD card content is not affected
  • full support for openrecovery script specifications include all backup and restore options
  • run openrecovery scripts in 3 modes: on start goomanager boot scripts + one touch menu to either directly open a default path or freely browse for scripts
  • define ors backup target volume from within Nandroid Settings menu
  • ors restore path supports stock clockworkmod path, TWRP path and custom_backup path
  • poweroff, reboot to recovery and reboot to download mode options
  • dual USB mount in recovery support and mount external sd over usb for /data/media devices
  • adb root in recovery: just wait about a minute to activate
  • detailed build info in About menu

Die Installation gestaltet sich sehr einfach sofern schon ein Recovery installiert ist. Lediglich die ZIP-Datei herunterladen und über das Recovery (in meinem Fall das TWRP) installieren. Beim nächsten Boot-Vorgang in das Recovery begrüßt dann PhilZ Touch CWM. Ich werde das Recovery nun mal ein paar Tage nutzen und entscheide dann, ob mir das eine oder andere aus TWRP fehlt. Was meint ihr zum „neuen CWM“?
