new recovery mode in replicant 6

Added by Fil Lupin about 1 month ago

After installing replicant 6 (on my i9300), I saw the recovery mod changed and I would like to check everything is ok.

The boot follows these steps :

- logo "Samsung Galaxy SIII, GT-I9300" with red "!" up-left in the window
- Replicant recovery window, with a menu with 4 options: reboot system now, apply update, factory reset, advanced
- there is not anymore an option to backup on sdcard.

Since the old CWM is not anymore accessible and has been replaced by this "replicant recovery", is it normal ?
If yes, I understand it is not necessary to root the phone anymore.

It seems recovery mode lakes an adb activation menu. Is adb active by default?

Since this new recovery does not allow to backup to sdcard, is there any problem to reinstall former recovery CWM ?
Does anyone already tried this ?

Sounds fine. For the backup feature, see #1802. ADB is by default only active for sideload. If ADB was enabled in the developer settings and the connecting PC was authorized, then it's also active in the recovery. Only when the device is encrypted, ADB stays inactive (except for sideload).

I didn't try to backup a Replicant 6.0 installation with the Replicant 4.2 recovery (if that's what you mean).

I wanted to backup partitions to check if I can get back in the case of a replicant 6 crash.
