twrp and cwm recovery PICOpad GDK

There are two famous recovery application for android, which is TWRP (Team Win Recovery Project) and CWM (Clockworkmod Recovery). They both build by amazing developers and they both do pretty much the same thing, which are : allows you to perform several advanced recovery, restoration, installation and maintenance operations on your Android device that aren’t possible with the stock recovery, and is one of the most common ways used to gain root access, back up device data, install a custom ROMs, kernels, themes, modsΒ and more. Which one is better? I can say both program are very good, but personally, I like TWRP better. CWM seems to be more popular, though. The main thing I like about TWRP is the USB OTG functions and smaller backup footprint but besides that, CWM works just as well.

Here is i build the two flavour of them for axioo users, whichever one you prefer, you can have it :

PicoPad_GDK_twrpTWRP :

axioo-recovery-twrp

Download : reccovery-twrp-gdk.img

CWM :

clockworkmod-recovery

Download : recovery-cwm-gdk.img

HOW TO INSTALL :

To install this recovery application on your axioo PICOpad device you need SPFlashTool program which only available on winblows os platform so I cannot support it. You may refer to this tutorial : MT65xx Flashing Tutorial it is very well explained by Bruno Martin and try to find Flashing only part of the ROM part on the article to flash only the recovery image part.
Please be really careful using SPFlashTool, especially when flashing ROM not for your device, since it may bricked your device forever.

Have fun flashing ROM and mods on your PICOpad device.

    hello JF, do you have a time to porting CWM Touch for GEW? πŸ™‚

    • why not using twrp? using same touch interface if you want to try. or do you really like cwm a lot ? πŸ™‚
      lets see if i can do this cwm touch this weekend, i’ll let you know.

      last but not least, why you’re asking cwm for GEW model on GDK article ?

      • hollykidz

        woww its long time ago that I dont read the article again..

        I’m sorry πŸ™

        bout CWM, I can say that I really like a lot, and I’ve tried to porting other version of CWM Touch to GEW mode, buat there’s still no good progress πŸ˜€

        and finally, smaller backup footprint of TWRP make me mooved on, since my backup file CWM is too large πŸ™

        btw, yeah its my false to post in wrong section, sorry πŸ™‚

        gd luck for you..

        cant wait for “4.2.2 custom ROM for GEW by jf design” πŸ™‚

        • how you could possibly know i’m about to releasing 4.2.2 for gew ? dammm, it is’nt surprise anymore πŸ™‚
          anyway, the 4.2.2 rom is not perfect, but usable, many lack of features made me think twice for releasing it to you all, but some friend of mine keep pushing me to release it for public.

          • hollykidz

            πŸ˜€ some good news cant wait to get out loud hahaha

            yeah, in some porting to 4.2.2 there is a camera that not work, I dont know what lack features that u get.

            hmm. maybe it is wise enough to hold ur ROM, but by release for public, there a chance to get some sugestion πŸ™‚

            keep a good work and being awesome πŸ˜€

    Hi jfd, i want to install twrp on my gdk / x1.
    But before inatall, can you describe how to restore original recovery after installing twrp?
    Thx jfd πŸ™‚

    • hi deny, so you’re afraid if something bad happen, you can go back to previous recovery … hmmm wise guy.
      unfortunately i don’t have the original recovery, so there’s two possibilities :
      1. ask itclinic for stock rom, the recovery is in there.
      2. backup your original recovery before flash my custom recovery using mtkdroidtools, but you have to root first.
      i prefer no.1 since whatever it is, it’s safer to have a stock rom as a private backup.

        hi jfd πŸ™‚
        Im sorry have wrong comment on old picopad 4 πŸ˜€
        i have installed TWRP and succes πŸ˜€
        thx jfd πŸ˜€

        • great, happy to hear that, have fun … πŸ™‚

    • are you sure your device is GDK? why you’re writing X1? This GDK is using mtk6575 chipset, it’s a singlecore device.
      be really careful with this, you may damage your device!!! Read this : http://www.jfdesignnet.com/?page_id=4147

      The picophone x1 or GDS is quadcore device and using mtk6589, it’s totally different with this GDK device. Go here : http://www.jfdesignnet.com/?s=GDS
