[GUIDE] How To Port PhilZ/CTR/CWM/TWRP Recovery to your Phone

here are now many recoveries for MTK and my favourite recovery till now is PhilZ  recovery. Carliv Touch Recovery is also one of the best recoveries which MTK phones have. TWRP and COT exists too, but for me philZ is the best recovery. There’re 3 ways to port. One is to compile which is the best, but tough for some newbies. Another one is port manually which I will be explaining here and the last one is using automatic CTR porting tool, PhilZ porting tool and Cwm porting tool.
I will be explaining about CTR/twrp/philz/cot porting guide, manually and automatically both.
I prefer you to use the tool because it is less time consuming and works almost with every phone. Use manual porting only if you want learn about Android and other things, or I might say for educational purpose.

Manual Porting Guide [Will work with CTR/CWM/TWRP/Philz etc]

  • Download CTR from this thread: Click here. Download TWRP/COT/philZ from any mtk device with same resolutions.
  • Make sure you have your stock recovery. You can get it with a ReadBack or MTK Droid Root and Tools backup.
  • Now download MTK Boot/Recovery image unpack tool from here.
  • Extract this tool in one folder.
  • Put the images [carliv recovery and stock] in that folder which has extracted tools.
  • Now drag and drop stock recovery to MTK_unpack.bat file.
  • Same with the case of Custom Recovery.
  • Now open the folder of stock recovery folder and open a folder rmdsk in it.
  • Copy these files:
    meta_init.project.rc
    meta_init.rc
    ueventd.rc
    meta_init.modem.rc
    ueventd.goldfish.rc
    fstab
  • Open etc folder and copy recovery.fstab file too.
  • Now replace these files in the Custom recovery with the same directories.
  • Now go back and copy these files from the main folder in which you have your stock recovery’s extracted rmdsk and kernel files:
    kernel
    kernel_header
  • Replace these files in the Custom Recovery too.
  • Now go back to the main folder where you extracted the tool and .IMGs files.
  • Drag and drop the CTR folder to MTK_pack.bat file.
  • You’re done! Now try flashing!
