Hi,

Not sure what you mean by stuck running script 1, but if you follow this guide you should be ok.

. The tool never really states that the script is complete. If what you see is the same as on the video your ok, just continue with booting to recovery.

hi, its working now, I installed the recovery. But one question, how can I enter the recovery mode without going to the arc tools? I mean from like a turned off device.. or for example in a boot loop. The iFive Mini 3 doesn't have any hardware buttons except for the Power button.. so how to enter in recovery? Thanks again!

Hi,

I use quickboot from the play store, but that's my preference. The options for reboot in the arctools is the same as you get from quickboot, really the only difference I see is I save one click by using quickboot, no big deal. There are others out there, use the one you feel comfortable with.Wink

 

Edit:

Forgot about your loop question. Other post for iFive suggest "Hold power for 10sec, plug in USB" there is also an instruction sheet here provided by oma, its in Chinese you would need to translate it.

Here is our new ArcTools package designed to facilitate ClockworkMod (CWM) Recovery system installation on your device. This should work on most Rockchip devices running RK3066 or RK3188 processors.

 

Requirements and compatibility:

A rooted firmware is required, if you are not running one of our Kasty firmwares, you should be able to find one for your device in our forum.

If you are using a different firmware and ArcTools is not pre-installed, you can download it here:

Arctools apk

 

Following a few days testing period, we have gathered enough positive feedback from the testers and this package is confirmed to work on the following tablets:

Cube U30GT (RK3066) tested by admin

Cube U23GTC4-W (RK3188) tested by admin

Cube U30GT2 (RK3188) tested by Sethi, thantos and DaezD, saciorlux and robiom

Cube U39GT tested by manu_katz

PiPO M9 pro (RK3188) tested by cracktech and yabalis

Pipo M6 max tested by Balrog

Pipo Max M6 pro tested and worked like a charm by Blow. Thanks a lot.

ifive mini2 tested by juliusdapat

 

Using ArcTools to install CWM Recovery 

We haven't yet written documentation for this CWM installation process but the video below shows the main steps. If anyone wants to help the community with the documentation, feel free to post here.

Controls in CWM Recovery

Controls are done thru hardware buttons on your tablet : Vol-/Vol+ to go up and down, power button to validate choices. For tablets without these hardware buttons, you can either use a keyboard/mouse connected to your tablet using an USB OTG (Other the Go) cable, or use gestures on the touchscreen: touch and move up to select up, touch and move down to select down, swipe left to accept or swipe right to go back.

The usual disclaimer applies: our application and CWM package come with no warranty for any use; you use it at your own risk. Make sure you first have a backup of your data before testing firmwares or recovery procedures.

 

Thanks to fun_ from androtab.info for the CWM Recovery build.

Happened to me the first time I tried to flash my Max M6 pro recovery. I rebooted anyway into recovery and was stuck at the dead android screen (Stock recovery). Turned on my tablet again and ran Arctools. Downloaded the soft again and pressed install. This time I didn't get stuck at the "script 1". rebooted into recovery and voila! everything was perfect.

Hi,

Work great on my QiLive 97R (same as Archos 97b Platinum HD) RK3188 based tablet,
Originaly rooted with VROOT v.1.7.3.4863 and modified with SuperSU v.1.86 (Chainfire).

Working Tests :

- Full Backup & restore on/from ext_sd is ok! (take 35mn to full backup the 8GB of int_sd (90% full), and 16mn to full restore)
- Backup on internal (not tested, no free mem on int_sd for that)

- Mount / Unmount USB, SD etc... from recovery menu works fine!

- Installing package or firmware update from ext_sd : ok!
- Installing package or firmware update from int_sd : ok!
- Installing package or firmware update from USB HD 2"5 and KEY : ok!

I continue my tests but I think all works good with CWM

 

Thx for your tools, a very great job ;)

Is there a way to revert back from CWM to the original recovery or boot into it?

I was just asking myself the same question. Google didnt give me the right things, so is it possible? 

I can confirm that the normal flashing procedure with Rockchip Batchtool 1.7 still functions after CWM is installed due to the method that the Batchtool 1.7 employs when flashing an update.img file. It first updates the recovery partition to stock, then creates it's batch, then does a reboot recovery.

So the answer to your question is you can restore the Rockchip stock recovery by simply flashing an update.img file and selecting Update in the Batchtool dialog.

This also means that if you have CWM installed and then flash an update.img file (such as a new kasty ROM release), you have overwritten your CWM recovery and will have to reinstall it.

 

One other thing, when you install CWM using Arctools, you should see the following:

installing flash_image
installing recovery.img
Running script(1)

You can then confirm installation by selecting Reboot at the top of Arctools, then the Reboot Recovery radio button, then the Select Reboot button.

Your tablet should then boot into CWM recovery with a TopHat icon in the center of your screen.

Installed CWM on my tablet, U30GT C4, as described here. I can get into CWM recovery, but there it stops. I get errors like E: can not mount ...   E: can not find ...

 

All the options don't do anything. I want to do a factory reset, but can't do this anymore. Not in CWM or in Adroid itself. I'm running Kasty 4.4.1 ROM.

 

Please help!

Install CWM recovery to your RK3066/RK3188 based device

Traditional Recovery on Rockchip devices

As the owner of a RK3066/RK3188 based device, you may have wondered why you have to use a special program on your PC (Rockchip batch tool) to image your device while most other android users can reimage directly from their device using an interactive recovery program (Clockwork Mod recovery). The short answer is: because your device uses a Rockchip processor. Rockchip, the chip maker has decided to implement android recovery in a different way than almost every other chip maker. On Rockchip based devices the android recovery partition holds an automated, non-interactive program designed to process a "batch" created by the Rockchip batch tool. The following procedure will allow you to break those bonds and install CWM recovery to your device. CWM recovery will enable a number of advanced options on your device, including the ability to perform a fast and reliable nandroid backup (or restore) and the ability to apply a new system image using a .zip file from almost any filesystem (and without a PC).

Special Note

The procedure below will overwrite the recovery partition on your device with CWM recovery, replacing the stock Rockchip recovery process. Normally, this would prevent you from being able to use the Rockchip batch tool going forward. However, due to the method used by the batchtool when performing an update from a full system image, you will still be able to update your firmware using an update.img file and the batchtool. If you do so, your CWM recovery will be replaced with a stock Rockchip recovery, so you will need to run this procedure again to restore CWM recovery to your device.

This is an experimental build, so it is not guaranteed to work on any RK3066/RK3188 based device. However, the majority of feedback we have received so far has indicated that CWM recovery is working on the devices tested.

Here is a list of devices that this build has been confirmed to work on thus far:

Thanks

Our utmost thanks go to fun_ from androtab.info for creating this special CWM recovery build for RK3066/RK3188 devices and ManuPC for creating a modified CWM recovery for Android 4.4 KitKat based devices. I would also like to thank the great people at arctablet.com for the Arctools application and delivery system that makes this install so easy to perform.

Procedure: Install CWM Recovery

Requires:

* A rooted RK3066/RK3188 based device with an internet connection

Steps

1. If you already have Arctools installed on your device (Kasty's ROMs come with Arctools pre-installed), skip to Step 4.

 

2. Open a web browser on your device. Navigate to the following URL and download the Arctools .apk installer.

http://www.arctablet.com/assets/tools/arctools/com.arctablet.arctools.apk

 

3. Once the .apk file has downloaded, run the file, which will install Arctools to your device.

 

4. Run the now installed Arctools application. Install Apps should already be selected at the top.

 

5. Touch the down arrow V and you will see a number of available options. If you are running Android 4.4 KitKat on your device, look for the option named iFive X2 Android 4.4.2 CWM recovery by ManuPC and select it. Otherwise find the option named Rockchip generic (RK3066, RK3188) CWM Recovery v 6.0.3.1 by fun_ (androtab.info) and select it.

6. Touch the Download button immediately under the selected app.

 

7. You will see Downloading file, please wait .... Wait for the download to complete.

 

8. Now touch the Install Apps button just to the right of the Download button.
You will see:


installing flash_image
installing recovery.img
Running script(1)

 

9. CWM recovery should now be installed. Confirm by touching the Reboot button at the top of Arctools, then selecting the Reboot Recovery option. Then touch the Select Reboot button to reboot your device.

 

10. Your device should now reboot into CWM recovery, displaying a menu in the upper left and a Top Hat icon in the center of the screen.

 

11. You may use any of the following to move the selector up or down:

Volume + -
up/down gestures on the touchscreen
up/down motion on connected USB mouse

And any of the following to select the highlighted item:

Power button
Swipe left on touchscreen
Left mouse button on connected USB mouse

 

12. Congratulations!! You have installed CWM recovery on your device.

DroidUserRJC,

I would advise the following:

If you don't mind reinstalling your apps since you imaged with Kasty's 4.4.1 ROM, then simply reimage your tablet using the Rockchip Batch Tool 1.7 and Kasty's 4.4.1 image.

Due to the method that the Batchtool 1.7 uses to image a device, it is still able to image a device that has a corrupted recovery partition, such as yours. When the batchtool is done, it will reboot your tablet into your now restored to factory recovery and your device will be back to Rockchip stock recovery and Kasty's 4.4.1 image. If you need instructions, you can use these, substituting your image for the one specified in the linked procedure:

I did reflash and got an error when the flash was done and the reboot happened. Seems not to have effected the rest, now on 4.4.1 and the stock recovery.

 

Is this basically an answer that CWM does not work with the Cube U30GT C4? Although it has a RK3188 chip? It is more or less a special version and not a wide user base, I'm afraid. Can anyone report if they got it working on this specific device?
