strangly recovered every time after boot

Made like described btw after device rebooted init.rc looks like it was before and its date is 1970-01-01 02:00. Is there a way to stop its recovering?

Re: strangly recovered every time after boot

Did you create the /system/bin/bc_handler.sh (your own shell script that you want to launch on boot) file as well?
Here's a more comprehensive guide with lots of ideas:

Eg. if you find that init.rc is reset during boot, you might have to modify your boot image too.
