Two (or four) experimental tools. Flashed in recovery mode.
For making compatibility zips for Christian Troy's ROMs
and to convert stock into the bnmguy's CWM recovery.


Check also my other thread "Portable versions of custom recoveries, CWM and TWRP"
That version now also includes a converter so it is now a better way to test + install the CWM recovery.


------------------------------

The original thread of the CWM based recovery by bnmguy
http://www.slatedroi...ed-new-version/

The original thread of the TWRP recovery by Christian Troy
http://www.slatedroi...ery-twrp-v2630/

------------------------------

Stock2CWMconverter (CWM-recovery maker)
 
Converts tab's own stock recovery into bnmguy's CWM, which then
has the orig. kernel and uses it own modules.
That way it should be more compatible.
 
Needs a working system to install properly, i.e. rec, misc, system.
 
Download: http://yadi.sk/d/I0tjqlQQJBq2x
 
 
Custom Recovery Tester (for CWM and TWRP)
 
Flash this right after flashing a custom recovery.
It makes a custom recovery to revert back to stock
after its first boot. Stock file rec_bak.img must exist!
 
Can be also used later as a CWM remover tool. As a remover if system
isn't ok, then extract the zip inside and flash it normally yourself.
(or download it from here, Custom Recovery Remover: https://yadi.sk/d/Er8Ov0wNeYyWG )
(edit: above remover gives an error when flashed manually, but it works ok.)
(here is a new one, file rec_bak.img must exist! https://yadi.sk/d/8wRGbg1zmcTXV )
 
(I don't recommend flashing Ainol TWRP's to other
 devices without modifying them first.) 
 
Download: http://yadi.sk/d/S9LMIIPsJL7ah
 
 
Boot2CT's Boot Converter (Compatibility zip maker)
 
Tries to make compatibility zips for Christian Troy's ROMs,
It grabs values etc. from the current (stock) system, so it
must be runned before installing CT's ROM. The stock must
be version 4.2. Version 4.1 won't do.
 
The install order when using this tool (updated 14-03-18)
 
1. Install TWRP or CWM recovery
2. Flash Boot2CT's Boot Converter
3. Flash a CT's ROM (and the gapps.)
4. Flash Boot2CT's Boot Converter again
5. Do the factory reset
 
 
Download for CT's 4.2 ROM's: http://yadi.sk/d/4vhgriElJKrH6
Download for CT's 4.3 ROM's: http://yadi.sk/d/OtboNOfsJKrJD
 
Christian Troy's 4.2 ROM's: CM10.1 - AOKP (4.2) 
Christian Troy's 4.3 ROM's: CM10.2 AOKP (4.3) - ParanoidAndroid (4.3)


An example of more advanced usage
(see also http://www.slatedroi...ker/?p=1185105)
 

The way it should work for Hannspad is this (hopefully).

A. Install the 4.22 stock firmware of your choice.
B. Extract following files from the Boot2CT's Boot Converter and edit them (Notepad++)
1. boot2ct-stockfiles.txt (remove all the comments (#comment#) from the file names)
2. boot2ct-add2build.prop (remove the comment (#) from the BT line's start)
3. boot2ct-otherfiles.tar (no editing)
C. Put the above three files to your internal memory (/mnt/sdcard/)
D. Put a Christian Troy's ROM (and the gapps.) to your external memory (/mnt/sd-ext/)
E. Put Boot2CT's Boot Converter there as well (to your external memory (/mnt/sd-ext/) )
F. Enter to recovery. Do the factory reset just in case. Do the flashing sequence below
1. Install TWRP or CWM recovery (if not already installed, reboot the recovery)
2. Flash Boot2CT's Boot Converter
3. Flash a CT's ROM (and the gapps.)
4. Flash Boot2CT's Boot Converter again
5. Do the factory reset
G. Enjoy your new ROM (and if you do, go ahead and click Mr.Troy's donate button)

(For CWM or TWRP see this thread 1st: http://www.slatedroi...s-cwm-and-twrp/ )


Before using any of these tools make sure that you have a backup or a working
firmware saved somewhere, and that you are able to restore it too!  =@


If you find these tools working, please post the the tablet info to this thread.

The tools work, that I guessed already. Too bad the CM didn't.

Apparently if the tablet differ too much from those orig. Ainol tabs

the small changes the tool makes aren't enough.

 

Thanks for testing and for the feedback!

Hello,

I can't flash the cwm, How can I install the cwm with the stock recovery? I try with the option update from sdcard but it shows me an error.

thanks!

Thanks for testing. (These tabs seem to differ even more than I thought... odd though..)

 

Good that there was an error. Better it than a ruined recovery.

What tab you have? Could you PM me the recovery.img?

I have a generic and unknown tablet, and I don't have the recovery.img, but I have root access, if you need the content of any folder.

thanks a lot!

Boot2CT's Boot Converter updated (both of them). Download links are the same.

Added copying of touch configuration files which might fix some touch issues.

I also made the script a bit slower to avoid some errors.

 

Thanks for all the testing and the feedback!

Do you mean the CWM or some ROM by Mr.Troy? (Probably ROM because there is already a CWM recovery for hanspree,
made by someone who probably used more time to remove bnmguy's name from it than changing the few modules in it.
Not very honest behaviour using hex editor this way, IMHO. Yes, I mean you "Mr" "fipsy" of xda...)

Do you have a link for the firmware?
I would like to check it out, even that I most likely cannot do nothing more than the zip did...

Hi.

 

I had the same issue on Hannspree SN1AT71. In addition, during the bootloop on CyanogenMod logo, the screen was weirdly stretched at the left side of the screen. (Oval logo getting out of the edge of the screen).

(on first boot after flashing, the screen and the CM logo were correct, it's only when the tablet rebooted itself, that the bootloop and streched screen occured.)

 

So I tried to install Christian Troy's ROM without "Boot2CT's Boot Converter".

And then the tablet booted, the display was correct, but with no g-sensor (no rotating screen) and the touchscreen in portrait mode, as the display is in landscape (so even when taking care where you put your fingers, to try to match with the real display, many areas are inaccessible).

 

Nevertheless, I read about someone who managed to install CM10.2 on this device using your tool, but he seems to have done that before the update of march 10th. (no wifi working, and no rotating screen, but touchscreen working fine as he said) 

 

I'd like to try the previous version of your tool, so if you could put it somewhere for download, it would be very kind.

Or much better, if you could update your tool for have it work with this device, it would be... great ! :)

(I use the same firmware as haircut313)

 

Thanks a lot for your work...

This is correct behaviour which CT refers as a "cosmetic issue of the boot in portrait". It should center itself after some waiting.

Converter of 4.2 used for a 4.3 ROM (and vice versa) or a forgotten factory reset makes it stick to the bootanimation.

 

Naturally there is other possibilities too. Like the copying of BT related files if they are found.

That approach wasn't a working idea and probably has messed the CM in this case.  

(if bt is wanted the system files in Discovery comp zip(s) might work in Hannspree too)

 

Hannspree doesn't need the touch configs but some file from lib/hw dir might help the rotating, like "sensors.ATM702X.so"

I'll make a new one that lets user decide what files are copied from the stock if any...

Boot2CT's Boot Converter updated (yes, both of them). Download links are the same.

Now it's run before and after flashing a ROM by Christian Troy.

Copying of stock files removed (still possible as "extra" feature).

Read the included README and example files for more info.

 

for Alv's tab...

guesswork for Hannspree...
