[CWM] ClockworkMod Recovery porting for I9003 - Final Release

.

CWM Recovery for GT-I9003 by Skin1980:

This is the full-functional CWM recovery ported by me for the Samsung GT-I9003. Here some screenshot:


One thing to know is that in this version External SD is called SDCard. This because SDCard is used by CWM as backup support. For the same reason also the USB Storage mounted under "Mount and Storage" menù is related to external SD.

How to install:
Install this CWM is very easy, just flash the .tar file with odin ( put the .tar in the PDA field).
You can also use heimdall under linux. Just extract the normalboot.img file and do:

Code:
heimdall flash --normal-boot normalboot.img

IMPORTANT: Read this topic on Edify scripting used on update.zip. The partitions must be mounted before copying files:

Code:
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "mount", "-t", "auto", "/dev/block/stl9", "/system");

Flashing Zip Files:
If in the updater-script there isn't the "mount /system" option you must - before apply the zip - mount manually /system under "Mount and Storage" menù and then flash your zip.

Features:
- Added EXT4 filesystem support for the kernel ( now you can convert to ext4 to improve performanca);
- CWM with double RFS / EXT4 filesystem support;
- Busybox;
- Juwe11 RamScript from http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1111145 ;

THANKS: I have to say, and all of us have to say a big Thanks to the super Devs that helped me in this port: Chris41g, DRockstar (this CWM is heavily based on it's project), Roddick and all the other devs on #epic in irc.fossnet.info. These are WONDERFUL GUYS, always ready to help you.
Thanks also to koush that made the Clockworkmod Recovery.

IMPORTANT: The recovery isn’t universal, all firmware is different so don’t flash the recovery for a firmware different from your!!!! Since i don’t have all firmware on my PC upload your normalboot.img to me with the name of your firmware so i can build the CWM.
The normalboot.img can be found in the PDA tar of your firmware (if you have it on the PC). Alternatively you can dump it from phone with this command:

Code:
dd if=/dev/block/bml7 of=/sdcard/normalboot.img

Hey Skin! I congratulate for a job well done. Would you please elaborate the problem with nandroid and USB mass storage mounting for us noobs? What does it do and why is it important. Nevertheless, I bow before you master! Great Job!

- Nandroid perform a full backup of the Rom so you can restore if you soft-brick your mobile;
- USM mount permit to mount your USB in mass storage mode while you are in recovery.
