First you compile CM7 for your target platform as usual. This is needed to create some supporting libraries and the actual recovery.img file, including the kernel for your phone of course:
. build/envsetup.sh && brunch blade``` Then you create the signed flashable zip: ```bash TARGET_PRODUCT=cyanogen_blade make recoveryzip
That results in out/target/product/blade/utilities/update.zip
You can also set the product to
zte_blade but because it will differ from the CM7 build target, it will recompile a lot of stuff, but it still works just fine (in fact that’s what I have installed).
ROMManager still reports the version as 188.8.131.52, but when you boot into recovery it shows as “CWM-based recovery 184.108.40.206”. It seems to be faster doing backups than Koush’s version as it doesn’t output verbose messages and progressbars.
Update: just noticed the zip isn’t actually suitable for a first-time recovery install, its only an update to replace a stock recovery or an earlier clockworkmod. the recovery.img file is is fine though – it includes the kernel and formats the /recovery partition.
