Chinese maybe working on CWM custom recovery
Meizu MX4

link: http://bbs.ydss.cn/thread-474151-1-1.html

I don’t understand much using google translate, but it seems CWM is in development

We are waiting until cofface releases a fixed version: http://bbs.ydss.cn/thread-484120-1-1.html

@HondaRacer,
Whats wrong with it?
MX3 never got so much love from people :P

It’s a good step for custom roms, hopefully this progresses further.

@GreyGhost cofface said there was a bug and removed the download link. He will upload a new version when it’s fixed.

@HondaRacer,
Ahh okay…
Cool! Guess MX4 is getting ready for some custom stuff!

What does a custom recovery menu do that the stock one can’t do? Isn’t recovery just for being able to reflash the firmware? :) A legitimate question, I have never used or owned an android…

@OMGRonnie,
Nice little article regarding the same question:
http://www.howtogeek.com/193055/what-is-a-custom-recovery-on-android-and-why-would-i-want-one/

@GreyGhost

Thank you :) I will give it a read now.


“You’ll need to unlock your device’s bootloader to install a custom recovery on it”… COOL! It means all CN devices would be able to install the International Version of Flyme on it also! :D :D :D :D :D

This is really good news!!!

This is pretty awesome to say the least. But playing around with recovery is a little dangerous isn’t it? I will wait for others to try it once it is released first before installing it :)

EDIT: I honestly want it mainly for the backup/restore feature haha :D It would be nice to have a full backup image of the system which I know I can go back to anytime. :)

@Gajche,
It is the same as the one HR posted… But the links don’t seem to work. Guess he removed it because of the bug…

Looks like your connection to Meizufans was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
