I have made pictures of all the RELEVANT CWM screen using CWM V3 which is NOT the same CWM on the smartq tablets however i have cross refrenced the options with this video, futhermore they have been verified to be more or less the same by SuddenDeath (Thank You)
http://www.youtube.c...h?v=wwTHLV23E-M

everything looks the same (I cannot be held responsible for anything you do to your tablet)
but the ONLY DIFFERENCE is all the screens (apart from the main menu) have a +++++Go Back+++++ option at the bottom.
the FIRST picture I use is from the CORRECT CWM version

futhermore a few pictures of some of the main screens from the correct CWM have been posted by another user:

These are some of CWM v5.5.0.4 menu breakdown/screenshot that I've made and some screenshot I've gathered.
Pls feel free to add and amend anything you find amiss and remember use at your own risk.

Superr thanks !!!
Could you also add Mounts and Storage?
Some items I have used before to clean certain folders and to make sure the tablet was empty before flashing the ROM.

Just receive my device on the 16th May and after playing around in recovery do note that in the mount and storage
menu the mount USB storage option is not working. You can't mount the external SD-card to transfer files in recovery.
Also there is some option missing in the backup and restore sub-menu.
Another thing I notice is when I did a backup the files are not stored in the internal memory of the tablet but instead
stored in the external card.did not try backup with the external card removed from the tablet so not sure of what will happen
and also there is ample space in my external card. Not sure what will happen if there's not enough space.

The internal memory is devided in several partitions, the main data partition is seen in CWM as an internal sd card and the real sd card is seen as external sd card.
Probably only the internal part is used by CWM.

Yes, true the internal memory is made out several partitions.
That's why I find it weird that my backup image went to my external sdcard as in the physical card you slot in to
the tablet.

I've coded a flashable german recovery for Ten3, feel free to use it.
http://dl.dropbox.co...en3-formash.zip

If you wish to translate the recovery to english, feel free to do so... I've created some linux bash scripts to allow for Ten3 custom kernels which you can find here...
http://pastebin.com/0S8UynA0
http://pastebin.com/TfuYU1Gy

Just take the uImage_recovery file out of my CWM zip, unpack it using unpack.sh... hexedit the german texts of mine to english... then repack using repack.sh.
The Ten3 kernels use a manual LZO unpacker for loading the kernel into RAM... to use my scripts you need to install the mkimage and lzop command line utilities into your linux distro.

Greetings, Coldbird.

Amazing job, thanks Coldbird :)

For Ubuntu users you need to install these packages:

mkimage -> sudo apt-get install u-boot-tools
lzop -> sudo apt-get install lzop

Yup.

PS. The ICS Main Kernel is compressed the very same way... just with different file offsets and packing sizes...
Adjust my scripts a tiny bit to match the ICS Main Kernel offsets + LZO packing size and you can repack ICS kernels too. :D

Coldbird,


Thanks for these.

Still no response from Coldbird.
I tried the scripts and they both give errors, although the unpack seems to work, but repacking will not produce a workable uImage_recovery.
I really want to create a English translation but I need some info from Coldbird to get these working.
Not used to Linux anymore after not working with it for over 10 years.

Hi,
reading these posts I thought that I would like to try to do a translation of the CWM in English.
It will be for the S7 (it's the device I have) but I run into plenty of "little problems" and "little questions"
Can someone with more experience help me?
I resume the steps I have taken:
1) download Coldbird German CWM and scripts
2) hunt for original chinese CWM (it's SmartQ_Ten3_Android4.0_V4.5 if anyone is interested)
3) installed lzop and mkimage (in ubuntu) and unpacked the "uImage_recovery" files got 2 "recovery" files I called "recovery_de" and "recovery4v4.5"
4) started a comparison (I used filemerge in OSX but it's not really fit for binaries (ANY SUGGESTION?))
5) I can't see Chinese ideograms in "recovery4v4.5" but I infer they are there cause there is a German text in "recovery_de" (IS THERE A WAY TO SHOW THEM? Maybe another hex editor cause whatever character encoding I choose I see nothing, It's important cause it would be much easier to hunt them in different CWM files.
6) since i'm doing it I would like to try with latest SmartQ rom 4.1 released just a few days ago, but I can't unpack "uImage_recovery" probably they haven't used lzop, ANY IDEA?
my goal is to also produce a file with a list of translations (chinese-> english) to help to scale it to other CWM

thank you to anybody who would like to help me....

I did try a while ago. But coldbirds scripts for packing didn't work and I also had some questions. But he just doesn't respond to any message here or via PM. Too bad so I gave up for the moment. I was able to find all german texts with a hex editor but I was afraid I'd mess it up as some original english texts are longer than the german ones and wanted to know how much that would hurt. As I don't want to be editing over some imporant functions. You can't really see with a hex editor.

OK!
Thank you for the info,
Maybe i'll try to "fly blind"...
Since I am just starting to meddle with Android, do you have any idea about what happens if you have a broken recovery image?
my idea is, as long as i don't change the primary image and I just modify the text I should notfind myself in an unrecoverable situation...
do you know if the volume down trickworks even with a broken recovery?

BTW do you have any idea how th 4.1 images are packed? lzop seems is not able to expand it....

No I can't help you with that. Only I can imagine you can mess up the recovery and my guess is it will brick your device. As far as I can tell the recovery is you last fall back if something happens apart from factory specialist hardware. But that's only a guess.

I was wondering if CMW Rom Manager could be used for flashing an English version? I know too little about the technical side of CMW though...

Edit: it does not work, as the SmartQ devices are not recognized.
