Thanks a bunch for posting this AustinWise! This was just what I needed while watching my Connect's splash screen loop over and over again (even your title told me this was just what I needed while I scanned for answers to my problem!). Luckily I had the LGMobile tool already installed, so I just followed your directions, and was back up in 18 minutes.
Question is, what is the right
version of CWM?
This is my first android and first attempt at rooting, etc. I used spectrum_root_windows to root it, and downloaded ROM Manager -- before anything else I wanted to create a nandroid and if I understood correctly ROM Manager will help me to do that.
Anyway I went into ROM Manager and clicked "Flash CWM". Since the Connect wasn't listed on the list of phones, I decided what the heck and clicked Esteem. All seemed to go well.
I then powered off and restarted while holding down both volume buttons + power.
That's when I hit the loop.
So, just wondering if you or anyone else reading this has thoughts on where this went wrong. My guess is that I picked the wrong version of CWM. But I've yet to find (I've tried) any specific information on how/where to get the correct
version for the Connect -- if there is one.
Does anyone know what the correct version is and where to get it or know that there is not yet one available?
I'm not new to tech or minor league hacking of my stuff, but I am new to rooting and any help is appreciated.
And thanks again for these clear and succinct butt-saving steps.
