Alright so the folks (including me) on #motorolatriumph-dev (irc.freenode.net) have decided its best to use a particular build of CWM by tjstyle! More info on that over on AndroidForums.
Now on to the important bits this is a guide for installing the found to be working custom CWM recovery onto your Motorola Triumph!
For this guide you will need a machine running Ubuntu and a USB cable for your Motorola Triumph.
If you don’t have a stock framework-res.apk file you will also need to download this http://coderah.com/moto-triumph/stock-backup/framework-res.apk or http://www.mediafire.com/?acgp9x384052hoc
NOTE: apparently sometimes the drives do not auto mount (according to apsterling) using the “disk utility” you should be able to get them to mount.
okay on to the important bits: Continue reading
So after making some changes to my framework-res.apk I boot looped my phone and had no ADB every method I tried i was completely unable to push the backup I had.
I was on the #motorolatriumph-dev channel on freenode when apsterling pointed something out when he booted to the bootloader (vol dn + power) and plugged in via usb not only did it mount the device everyone gets but a bunch of other devices showed up they just were not mounted
“apsterling: when i put it into bootloader mode OS X Disk Utility shows a slew of other partitions unmounted”
I immediately proceeded to put my phone into bootloader and plug it into an ubuntu machine, it auto mounted EVERYTHING my next step was to see if I could write.. at first nope but then I ran nautilus as root and it gave me write permissions, not only am I able to directly access /system/ but it appears you can access just about anything you would want to here.
The Partitions or Drives that mount are ”cda, MOBILE, cache, hidden, system, userdata, caivs”
- boot into bootloader (vol dn + power)
- plug into usb on an ubuntu machine
- watch everything mount NOTE: apparently sometimes the drives do not auto mount (according to apsterling) using the “disk utility” you should be able to get them to mount.
- then goto a terminal and type “gksudo nautilus” then browse to the mounts and proceed to have fun!
