http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1478734 (psquare's CM7 for NOVO8 Advanced)* How to boot ClockworkMod Recovery 5
1. download recovery.zip and unzip it
2. put aml_autoscript and uImage_cwm on root of SD card
3. insert SD card
4. power on
you can flash uImage_cwm directly into recovery partition. then, you can boot recovery with VOL+ + POWER.
ClockworkMod Recovery 5 can't install official update.zip. if you want to reinstall official ROM, use uImage_recovery in official ROM.
* How to control ClockworkMod Recovery 5
for ainol NOVO8 Advanced
VOL-/jogball down: down, VOL+/jogball up: up, POWER/jogball push: select, SEARCH/BACK: back
* How to install CyanogenMod 9
1. download update.zip and put it on internal NAND flash or SD card (don't unzip it)
2. reboot recovery
3. install update.zip
4. wipe data/factory reset *1
5. reboot*1 only if you are upgrading from non-CM9 ROM (CM9 1st install)* random notes
no ubifs support for now. which is better, yaffs2 or ubifs?
ubifs should be supported if clockworkdmod is used as backup tool for official rom.
currently ramdisk in kernel is used as rootfs. modifying kernel by hand is not so smart.
should try to make initrd separately and pass it via bootm 2nd arg.
reboot doesn't work. if power is connected, reboot will work, but power off also act as reboot
reboot recovery/bootloader doesn't work at all. use VOL+ while power on.
is running to use accelerometer (and magnetic field sensor). it also tweak axes by ro.sf.hwrotation and ro.sf.gsensorposition.
- magnetic field sensor
is detected but not worked/not existed. magnetic field aware apps may not work correctly.
- use internal NAND flash as SD card
on ClockworkMod 5, use "... internal sdcard ..." and "... /emmc ..." menu items
