Thanks for this wonderful tool. Now that I have recovery installed on my phone, can I deleted the recovery image off the sd card? Also, when I go to flash a new ROM, will it over write my recovery; will I have to go through the process again? Or will new ROM's have a recovery? Or (yes another or), will the recovery stay put and just flash the new ROM?

Thanks in advance.

Yes once you have the img flashed you can delete it off your sdcard.

As long as the rom you are going to flash is instructed to not touch the recovery it won't touch it (I have never seen a rom overwrite a custom recovery so you should be fine.) So the recovery should stay put.

I would personally leave the recovery.img on your sdcard for a while just in case it doesn't stick for some odd reason (happened on the Ally, non rom flashing related though) so you can easily re-flash it if you need to.

I have a Vortex with FW 2.2.2 and it is rooted, but I don't know if this will work because when I went to download the Vortex file, it said 2.2.1, is it safe to flash it or will I have to wait for a file under the name 2.2.2?

The 2.2.1 is just the version of the recovery. You should be fine as all the versions of the recoveries listed for all the devices here are version 2.2.1

Default 2nd line of code returns "invalid length"

Device:Optimus S
Recovery version (?): 3e (?) OR 4a8e8d4a64cc027020f6dc2e1371a6ee recovery-RA-optS-2.2.1-GNM.img
I matched MD5Sum


After entering the 2nd line of code, I get error message of "invalid length" I have no clue as I have re-done the process several times and am entering exactly what is in the box.

I have no recovery log.

All help is appreciated.
Thanks.

Im guessing thats after the last part, did you enter "su" and get a "#" instead of the "$" AND THEN issue the remount command successfully??? Sounds like you just need to re-remount /system/

What kind of error would be helpful, if the error is because the file isnt there, then donw worry about it. All this does is rename the "program,script,installer,thingamijiggy" (not sure of the linux term) that will overwrite the custom recovery with the stock one.

Default A little help, please?

I have a G'zOne Commando (rooted) and cannot seem to make this work. I tried Joneidy's recovery with no luck (flashed image just fine but when I reboot into recovery, it hangs at the "G'zOne screen). I want to try this one, but when I try to download recovery-RA-Commando from Mediafire, it says it's password protected, and won't let me proceed?

Hello all,

I currently own the DInc1. (ROOTED and CM7 Nightlies)
My early upgrade is not untill October.
I was looking into the DInc2, but with all the counter root that has been comming out in the forcefed updates, I was thinking maybe the Commando or the Vortex.

Has any one seen an update of GB on the Vortex or the Commando?
And does this method work with Froyo?

Thanks....

you are crazy, you dont want the vortex over the Dinc1. if you do, shit ill trade you my ally for it now!!! and you can still upgrade in october!
Pretty similar but mine has a keyboard and GREAT devs and ROMs, dont think the vortex has the same kind of community for it. Also it will probably never see an official GB update

i dont know anything about the commando but i doubt its any better than your Dinc1. id bet they figure out how to root and s-off the Dinc2 w/ GB

follow instructions in the first post to manually flash the recovery. if that's too difficult, you can use ROM manager but i would advise doing it this way. if you aren't comfortable doing it, maybe you don't NEED to root your phone.

Don't use ROM manager. There's a thread saying how it's bad for our phones (Optimus M).

whats bad? using ROM manager to flash gnm's amonra recovery? or using CWM recovery?

whats even worse for our phones (ANY PHONE) is rooting without understanding what your doing, but people do it ALL THE TIME. like i said, i advise doing it the manual way and if thats too much, maybe dont root.

if someone asks im going to tell them how to do it, ill also tell them they're better off doing it the manual way but i don't care if they dive head first into root without understanding these things and brick their phones, im just here to provide the information, what they do with it is on them. anyhow, not trying to argue, i just think if someone wants "easy" give it to them.

Default Could RA Recovery list the name of the Nandroid it creates?

I have been in the habit of making a weekly Nandroid backup, and every time I do I find myself wishing that RA recovery would list the name of the Nandroid file it just created before I reboot and dig up that information with a file explorer (I keep a log for the Ally and copy down these Nandroid names as they are made).

Could this be a possible feature upgrade for RA Recovery, to list the Nandroid name when it is done creating it?

DO NOT use CLOCKWORK MOD or ROM MANAGER!

There had been a variety of users who ran into the same basic problem, and if I'm not mistaken, it points mainly to the use of CWM. Simply installing ROM Manager itself causes no harm of course.

Agreed.

I'd like to provide an analogy for you to illustrate that using a more efficient way is not, as you seem to imply, a bad idea. Take for example two different methods in basic Calculus on how to take a derivative of a function. The basic understanding in either case is that the derivative of a function yields another function that represents the slope of the original at any given point. If you're already familiar, cool. If not, just think of slope in common sense terms--skiing down a mountain that is sloped either steep or gently.

Taking the derivative the manual way, you must take the limit of the function plugged into the difference quotient as h -> 0. For an example, I'll use a basic equation: y = f(x) = x^2:

d(x^2) = lim.. (x+h)^2-x^2 = lim.. x^2+2xh+h^2-x^2 = lim.. 2xh + h^2 =
....dx.......h->0....... h........... h->0.......... h............... h->0 h .......h

lim.. (2x + h) = 2x
h->0

Or, you can take the derivative the super fast way, by simply reducing the exponent by a value of 1, and applying the original exponent as a coefficient of your variable. Demonstrated with the same function as above, f(x) = x^2:

d(x^2) = 2x^1 = 2x
....dx

Now if you're already familiar with this, you'll know what I'm talking about. If you're not, that's okay. Surely you can still see the MASSIVE difference in efficiency. In fact, the second method shown here is vastly used, and the first method is only taught practically as a formality to show where it comes from. You can learn what a derivative really is with either method. Once you start taking derivatives of much more complicated functions, it becomes impractical and illogical to use the long method.

Just the same, while I recommend that all new rooters heavily investigate what they're doing, understand what it is that they're doing, have a backup plan and a way to revert what they're doing, and overall be completely aware of the consequences, both potential and guaranteed, I believe that a rooter can understand these consequences in this context without going through and manually typing a bunch of stuff in ADB. Just the same, I enjoy administrator access on any computer I own, but I enjoy it at the level of a competent user--not a Windows developer.

Efficiency is a good thing, and is sufficiently separable in this context from the issue of knowledge vs ignorance.

EDIT: All of the above said, while it doesn't take much typing to manually flash a recovery, I look forward to when ROM Manager compatibility issues are addressed, and/or someone makes a competing app that achieves the same goal.

look where you put flash_image on your SD card. is it in any folders? for example, for anything I intend to install like this, or any zips I want to flash, I always put them in a folder on my SD card named "a". So in my case, I had to modify the statement to "cat /sdcard/a/flash_image....", so it would look in the correct location.

Yeah I found it, thank you so much, it worked perfectly once I realized I had the stuff in a folder named "recov"

did you run the "# mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 (your device /system path) /system" correctly? this mounts system as read/write

This Custom Recovery works very well, once you figure out those commands.

BY the way, don't sell the LG Vortex short. It's a decent phone and a good successor to the Ally if money is an issue for you. (I got mine free after $50.00 rebate.) It's extremely easy to root and there is very little need for a custom ROM. Just delete the crap you don't want and install what you do. AND it runs Netflix!

I do miss knowing what's going on in the Ally community though. Doesn't look like anything juicy has emerged on the Custom ROM scene since Velocity 1.1 though. StormDroid isn't out yet, nor is CM7... and nothing else appears to be happening.

Do you mean by a command in terminal or a hard key combination. Cause the hard key combinations are listed in the original post.

What kind of error would be helpful, if the error is because the file isnt there, then donw worry about it. All this does is rename the "program,script,installer,thingamijiggy" (not sure of the linux term) that will overwrite the custom recovery with the stock one.

Not sure in your case but did you do the following:

<Assuming you are using adb from pc command prompt> After you issue the su command it asks for permission in your phone for superuser approval, after you approve, did you then select the mount as mass storage on your phone again?

Don't exactly remember if that's how I did it but I think so.

Cheers!

Maybe you are not fully rooted? I heard there are two kinds of root. But besides that I have no idea, hope you figure it out.
