Hi Guys,

Having a few difficulties installing the image. Everything goes fine until I run "flash_image recovery", then the cmd box says
Code:
can't find recovery partition
Any advice would gratefully appreciated,

Using a (UK) T-Mobile GW620 with V10U_00 (1.6) firmware.
The mobile is rooted with superuser.

Many thanks,
Andrew

so i tried to start it using the three keys and it came up with is the yellow !.
i'm kinda stuck... am i on the wrong sw?
*edit*
thanks to amoamare and his awesome program. worked like a charm.
I just tried to install recovery via the sdcard with terminal emulator, and got the same error above. Then when i did the reboot, it would show a bluescreen that said something fastboot? And only way i could get the phone to get out of that screen was a battery pull.

Nowhere in my instructions did I ever say to use terminal on the phone. Use adb shell or fastboot. Best way is from inside recovery follow starting from step 1.

Thank you very much for this. Your tutorial was very thorough and easy to follow.

Stupid question, are there any key bindings for the recovery? As in, when at the recovery screen, can you select items from the list or are all of those commands done with a root prompt in adb?

Forgive the noobish-ness, just curious.

Thanks again.

EDIT: Nevermind, figured it out. Opened the keyboard and used the d-pad.. duh lol

Hey i had that same thing happen? what did you do to correct it? did you just end up using adb shell through the computer? let me know..

Thanks

Hey there drellisdee first off thanks for everything you have done in this forum. I am a new member of this site. However I have been lurking for a while trying to get this custom backup system up and running. Seeing that I am a Noob and haven't done anything like this in years I have been less than successful. Well I will try and cut to the chase. I can't get past go hardly. When I go to the adb shell and I get the $ sign I type Su and I get permission denied. I have tried with my phone and my wifes. Is there anyway we could talk on this site and maybe get me walked through this. Man I sure would appreciate it. Again your awesome Thanks so much

You are getting that error because you are not rooted. That part is assuming you are already rooted. Look in the how to root ally thread for a app that I linked for 1 click root. Or else follow the steps exactly from step 1 on and you can do it without root.

Well so here it is... Thanks to everyone on this site especially drellisdee.


Well my next question is how extensive is this Nandroid backup thing-a-ma-jig. I mean its only 275 MB in size? What all does this thing backup?
Does it back up all your apps and settings and all that good kind of stuff?

My first impression was that it is an exact image of the phone... AKA you could go get yourself a brand new Ally out of the box and put this on it (provided you put the Nandroid backup system on it) And it would be a clone of the original phone having all the same apps having the same background and ring tones etc etc. Is this the case?

Also I saw this Google Backup thingy in it. What is that?
Basically it would be super awesome for all of those nifty features in this Nandroid Backup Recovery system to be detailed out and told what they are and what they do. Maybe you guys have already covered it somewhere i just missed the memo. (that happens to me alot) I seem to miss stuff even when its in front of my face. Well anyeway I really appreciate it everyone.
I really look forward to what you have to say about this drellisdee.

FROYO FTW BABY!!

It backs up an image of your phone. So yes apps and all that but I am not sure on flahing it to another phone because every phone has its unique ID for OTA, I could be wrong but as far as I know its impossible to flash ur nandroid backup to another phone. Someone correct me if I'm wrong

when the droid scene first got root and a recovery most the roms were basically just someone elses phone they modified and put up as a nandroid to download. so for the droid atleast it can be done.

Hey Vmanisme thanks for weighing in. on this
Number one it is awesome that this little thing backs up EVERYTHING that is really great. However the reason i asked this question was I was wondering what whould happen if your a clutz like me and you I dunno drop your phone in the lake. Yes I have done that with my Lg EnV back in the day. It was completely fried. LOL So I had the insurance and I got me a brand new EnV... THe only thing was.... It was stock no games no ring tones no background NO NUTTIN. It stunk!! LOL So I was hoping it was kind of like creating an image for a computer that could be put on any machine with the same specs and same motherboard. That way "you really never lose anything no matter if even the worst case happens." I really hope that is the case. That was the big draw for me.

BTW Vmanisme I saw your Thread for fastest Ally because of some Rom I think? You think you could PM me more about this... It sounds really Cool.
I am assuming you flashed this to your Ally using the Android Backup System in the begining of this thread. Hey Thanks again

I checked out some topics and it turns out that it is possible to reflash a nandroid backup based on some Eris threads.

and to the 2 guys that asked about ROM, look here:

Yes you can flash your nandroid to another ally and it will have a carbon copy of the phone you took it from. The roms we are making are from a /system and /boot from a nandroid.

please use v1.2.2 as the usb mount storage button is mapped wrong on v1.2.1. Please post more detailed info on what method you used to flash it. Copy of your cmd prompt shell would be ideal.

Hey Brad That is the exact same thing that has been happening to me as well.
Has this happened to anyone else?

So Drellisdee where do we pick up version 1.2.2 ?

Also what is the real difference between the version 1.13 and these new recovery systems 1.2.1 / 1.2.2. Its my understanding that the original version couldnt flash froyo but the latter can. Is that correct?

What are the official loading instructions for this new Recovery are they the same as with the old? I loaded the old recovery system with the Terminal on the phone. It worked like a charm.

Do you somehow have to take version 1.13 off then put 1.2.2 on?

Anyway Thanks a miliion to all who are involved.... good stuff.

It's at the bottom of drellisdee's original post.

On Another note. After i flashed v1.2.2 i get the verification error no signature when trying the flash update zip option. This happens when i tried flashing the Velocity rom, my own custom rom, as well as the kernerl drellisdee made. (This also happened when i flashed v1.2.1)

flash_image: permission denied

Thanks for the info on were to find v1.2.2.img Found it tryed to install still permission denied.
Ok Brad I finally got it to work!!




So the only thing I did different was to Wipe all the different Cache's on the phone including the dalvik or delvik or whatever. LOL I reset the rotating settings and basically everything I could wipe I wiped. I even wiped my butt. LOL
So in other words I tried everything.
The only thing I didnt do was wipe my SDCARD partition's.

After all that I Did the same instructions as I did before in the Recovery thread and it worked Great.
Also I did it on the Terminal Emulator in the phone not the ADB shell.
Hope that helps.

I am not sure I needed to wipe all that stuff.... but I just know it worked after I did.

Cya Bro

Confirmed!!





So.... Dumb question... What do we do now drellisdee?

I can also confirm that error when trying to flash two different roms and the kerenl. Trident also told me in IRC that he had gotten that error.

I received that error while using your recovery. It works just fine in ClockWorkMod.

And yes, I can assure you that my ROM is signed.

Well does this mean we should flash back to version 1.13 or 1.14
and wait for version 1.2.3?

Or is it that this version can only flash Froyo Roms, and all the 2.1 Roms such as Tridents Velocity cant be flashed with this newer version?

Drellisdee can you weigh in on this?

Yes that was a bug in the last one with verifing signatures. Untill I fix that soon use under menu "other" the toggle signature verify to disabled.

Well I am looking forward to the new version.

Hey you know what... if it was me making these programs everyone would be waiting for years and they would have 1001 bugs in them. So its all good.

I just want you guys to know how much you are appreciated. This stuff cant be easy.

At least it wouldnt be for me.

Hats off to Drellisdee!!

My Ally is rooted. I had installed the 1.13 recovery with very little trouble. Then I discovered Clockworkmod and installed that recovery. When 1.2.2 was put up, I had one hell of a time trying to get it to install. I kept running into that "not enough available memory" error. Well, thought I'd try it on the device considering I wasn't getting any via adb. I moved the flash_image and recovery-RA_GNMTv1.2.2.img files onto my sdcard, loaded up terminal emulator on my phone, typed su at the $ prompt and got root. I then went through the commands for phones that already have root and, voila! I'm now rockin' drellisdee's custom recovery. Probably not the best way to do, but it worked for me. Hope this helps =)

Did you mount the sdcard on your computer first? IIRC you need to have that card mounted so cmd can access that file and then adb can flash it.

Yes. However, out of curiosity I just flashed the 2.2 recovery. Use the fastboot method, it's very simple. Naturally remember to replace recovery-RA_GNM_1.13.img with recovery-RA_GNM_1.2.2.img

Quote:

2) Setup fastboot drivers. Copy these lines into your android_winusb.inf in usb drivers in android sdk or use my kit that is linked above. They go in 2 places x86 (up top) and amd (lower part).

Code:
 
;LG Ally
%SingleAdbInterface%     = USB_Install, USB\VID_1004&PID_618E&MI_01
;%CompositeAdbInterface%     = USB Install, USB\VID_1004&PID_618E&REV_0100&MI_01
%SingleBootLoaderInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_18D1&PID_D00D
3) Issue command adb reboot-bootloader from command prompt and your phone will reboot to a blue screen that says Fastboot. Goto device manager and you should see an android listing that is unknown. Right click and update driver and select browse for driver then let me pick from list of drivers on my computer. If you see android bootloader interface pick it and you are good. If not use have disk and browse to android_winusb.inf and you should see the android bootloader interface.

4) Issue command fastboot reboot to test if its working. Phone should reboot and then do adb reboot-bootloader.

5) Place recovery-RA_GNM_1.13.img in android sdk tools folder and give command
Code:
 fastboot boot recovery-RA_GNM_1.13.img
6) Once it reboots into my recovery use adb shell and once you get root # prompt type
Code:
/ # mount /sdcard
 
/ # flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-RA_GNM_1.13.img
 
/ # umount /sdcard
 
/ # reboot
7) Power phone off then boot holding SEND+MENU+PWR and let go when you see the LG logo

8) If it reboots to stock recovery which is a android guy and a yellow "!" or if you have tried it a few times and know you released the keys when you see the LG logo and you got nothing just the VZW splash then do this:

If you used flash_image and the above happens use this from my recovery (not stock) adb shell:

[code]
/ # mount system

/ # cd system/etc

/ # mv /system/etc/install-recovery.sh /system/etc/install-recovery.sh.bak

/ # umount system

/ # mount /sdcard

/ # flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-RA_GNM_1.13.img

/ # umount /sdcard

/ # reboot

You need the stock recovery.> download this by drellisdee Recovery Stock Recovery Image and do what i said, instead of using recovery-RA_GNM_1.13.img for the name in the command line, use stock_recovery.img thats what i did. Just download it and place it in (wherever your sdk is located)/sdk/tools

I've downloaded the sdk tools linked in the first post, but I don't see flash_image in the tools directroy. Does that come from somewhere else?

Great! I have 1.2.3 installed and can boot into recovery consistently. I'd like to use this to install Velocity 0.2, but have a couple of really basic questions.

First, to take a backup, is just the normal NAND backup enough to have something recoverable in case of disaster, or do I need to use one of the other options?

Second, how do I wipe all of the data and caches before installing the ROM? I'm assuming that's under the wipe menu, but I'm not 100% sure and I don't want to hit that and see a screen that says "wiping phone" before I can do anything about it.

Sorry for the basic questions. I'm pretty new to messing with phones and prefer to tread lightly until I get a bit more comfortable.

I made a regular NAND backup (only one) and have restored it a few times and worked flawlessly.

Yes the Wipe menu. You would wipe data, cache, and dalvik(idk if i spelled it right) cache.
