Updating SuperSU binaries
« on: March 01, 2013, 06:27:50 PM »
I used the wug toolkit to root my Nexus 7, 4.2.2

When I clicked on SuperSU it said it needed to Update the binaries. After I said yes I got the attached screen


I know wug used twrp but don't know if I have a "custom recovery" or what that means.

Which button should I click on next?

Thanks

TWRP is a custom recovery.  I use TWRP as well. I like the touch UI and it just works for me. If you have Rom Toolbox you can flash  recovery after the fact.  Do you know how.to boot into.recovery to.check what is.installed? Hold Power /volume down from.off...

If you're rooted, you can let it install the binaries normally. If you've unrooted the other method might be used for the bin folder access. Htc is another phone/tablet.

Rom toolbox is really something! Wow!

I need to learn more before I use it and mess things up through ignorance.

Careful because not all of the tools are compatible. I would make sure you have a solid Nandroid backup before deciding to really dive in.

I agree with Barry. Rom toolbox can be dangerous if you get too curious and aren't certain about what you're doing.  A Nandoid should be your best friend with this app. Some changes cannot be undone without it.

Okay, I got the message. I will uninstall it until I am much more knowledgeable.
I appreciate the wise advice.

I only use that app mostly to flash new versions of recovery. Used it once back in the day for changing my build prop for rotation.  I read some horror stories about it bricking peoples devices when diving into it . Mostly phones.

New version of recovery? Simple.  Download to PC and rename to recovery.img.  Boot into fastboot mode.
Code: [Select]
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img

=ROM toolbox finds the trashcan.

I'm not badmouthing the app.  There are some uses for it.  Ever tried changing a font face with it or applying a incompatible boot splash screen? Frankly, it can be scary.  I do use ROM Manager though.  It will update Clockworkmod Recovery, but not the touch version without a fee. I have the Premium Version, but it still charges for some features. I used it the other day to manage my Nandroids.  I couldn't locate the new directory. 

By the way, ES File Explorer has an integrated .prop file editor.

It is pretty amazing how comprehensive it is. I guess that is one of the problems. Tough to get everything to work on every device and every new build.

So that will update TWRP or whatever custom recovery to the newest version? Embarrassingly enough, I still use apps instead of fastboot commands. Haven't learned it yet.
I think cwm touch is free with RT
