So you might remember this
My device was (and still is...) completely unknown to the outside world and i had only found one working custom recovery out there.
But i really wanted to have at least a custom recovery working on my phone.
I later found tools called mkboot and split_bootimg that would allow me to split the boot image and build it from scratch again.
Turns out they were very useful and i could figure out how to use the working custom recovery plus my recovery from my device and build something that works on my device.
More details in my github repository :https://github.com/gameblabla/carrefour_smart_5_4g_cwm
If you actually own such a device, grab the recovery image file here :https://github.com/gameblabla/carrefour_smart_5_4g_cwm/releases
So what's next ? Well a few wishes :
- Try first to flash a custom ROM for Kitkat from another similar device
- Find a working kernel from another device, complete with touchscreen support
- Eventually have something on something newer than Android Kitkat.
If you have anything to say, please do tell. I'm quite unfamiliar with Android custom rom dev and what are the good practices.
