cwm looping? download this and flash in recovery


thanks to thisjustin for providing stock kernel

https://github.com/Shabbypenguin/android_device_lge_vs840 source

there is a hardware set of controls to get into recovery however it causes the phone to detect cwm and get stuck booting there, thus you will "cwm bootloop". use the second zip and flash it in recovery to unstick and put stock recovery on there. use apps like rom manager and quickboot to get into cwm without sticking

Default no recovery

I can't get into recovery in the first place. I had no issues rooting but when I attempt to go into recovery via quickboot it just restarts my phone. And running the CWM-Installer doesn't do anything either. Any ideas??

Anyone know how to snag the OTA and install it manually? After I rooted, I now keep getting nagged to install and the install fails.

EDIT: Saw a suggestion that the OTA is blocked due to the stock apps not being there (I had removed them after root). Tried a factory reset to add the apps back, but even after that it's not running the OTA. Seems like root just completely blocks it.

nope you did

removing those system apps means teh ota cant install... a factory reset wipes out your apps and settings/data has nothing to do with restoring apps. you arent suppose to be able to remove those because you arent supposed to have root, ergo its not designed to restore crap you removed

No brick here.

Here's what I did:

1. Installed the LG Spectrum drivers from the Root thread
2. Plugged in the phone
3. Switched the USB connection setting to Network/ethernet

Batch ran, had some errors on the remove statements, I think. Hit enter to close the batch file.

Phone rebooted 2 or 3 times, but came back up. Installed Quick Boot and chose to boot into recovery. Successfully got into CWM. Now what?

Eh. Disregard. It worked fine after reboots, but when I powered it on this morning after charging it started to CWM loop. Used the unlooper to get back in though.

the unlooper is needed just because of lg's weird ass boot management, it was found if you entered recovery using buttons on the lg connect (your sister phone) then it would do a check to see the integrity of the partitions, and since you had cwm it would fail there, so i whipped up the delooper to ensure you could get back out.

but thats not my concern, thisjustin claims he cant turn on his phone becaus eof cwm, which i dont know how that happened with this. and you claim its working fine :/

Well, to be honest, I'm a little paranoid about turning my phone off again in fear of it bricking. But bricking can be caused by any number of missteps along the way.

If anyone can devise a way to either install the OTA manually or get it to stop nagging, I'd appreciate it.

I'm getting these errors when running the CWM install:

rm failed for /system/etc/install-recovery.sh, No such file or directory
rm failed for /system/recovery-from-boot.p, No such file or directory

Not sure if that's effecting the install or not.

EDIT: Nevermind. Did some digging in the Spectrum forum and it looks like these errors are benign.

I also downloaded both your zip for the lucid and the zip for the spectrum that is out there. Noticed that in your zip the image for CWM is about 5mb, whereas the spectrum image is 16mb. Also noticed that in the spectrum zip I downloaded there was a folder marked 'New Folder' that contained a CWM image that was marked 'bad', but also seemed to be the same size as the image that you had in the Lucid zip.

In the midst of tooling around, I had copied the CWM image from the spectrum over to the Lucid folder as was contemplating running the install with that image. Well, I had launched the batch file, but stopped short of starting it when I turned to as a question in this thread about the size discrepancy....next thing I knew the batch file was actually running the CWM install on the phone. Anyways, didn't really end up doing anything (just shuts off the phone when I try to boot into recovery). Can't get into CWM after the install, and no bootloop (thankfully), even after a battery pull.

I might just be crazy, but it does seem to me that I have to hold the power button just a little bit longer after the CWM install to get the phone to power on. Seems to simple of an answer though.

the spectrum uses a different kernel thus cwm for them wont work. the one i made is made for the lucid.

the only thing you guys should be sharing is the spectrum root script because the exploit still works for you guys, everything else is different. look to the lg viper and the lg connect for cool tricks/hacks that should work on your phone with minimal edits.

Will do. One off-the-wall question: Why does the backup on these phones take so long? Finally got backup working via some tricks in the Connect forum, and I'm backing up right now and it's taking a while. The Incredible didn't take nearly as long, and I probably had more crap on that phone at the time.

EDIT: Think the cause may have been that it was locking up without locking up during that backup. It was running through files with various numbers that ended in '.report'. Did that for longer than it should, so I just did a battery pull. Going to try to reinstall CWM again and clear the cache.

Sounds awesome! Thanks for your hard work on this. CWM doesn't seem to be cutting it right now. TWRP sounds purty.

Just bought the Lucid (well got it free actually cuz the Illusion sucks and I complained enough lol) and totally excited to get cwm. Wish me luck :-P. Let me know if anyone wants me to test anything. I'm thinking of starting the daunting task of porting CM7 now that we have root and cwm.

Got my replacement lucid ready for some more testing. No I am not crazy, I have faith in shabbypenguin. The reason my phone bricked is probably my fault as I was messing with some files in my lucid via root explorer and adb. I do have to say though I have had and been modding android devices since the g1 days and this is the first brick ever (out of a lot of devices) but its cool. Ready whenever you are shabbypenguin.

only samsung devices have odin and download mode, lg uses lgnpst but you need a leaked file from lg in order to use it.

Lol well that certainly explains why my illusion and moment were so easy to fix if I bricked it. My Optimus S was a little more difficult but even when bricked I generally still had access to the system via ADB. Looking forward to getting down and dirty with this Lucid. Still at my gf's house where I have no computer access lol. Tempted to see if there is a way to root without the aid of a computer :-P

i got stock kernel which is what allowed me to make this cwm for your device. i dont need a dump of system or anything but i dont plan on making roms etc. id suggest ya runt his command after your rooted

adb shell dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p26 of=/sdcard/system.img

that will make a nice system.img for ya

Lol oh I planned on it ... I want to make sure I can undo the damage that I will probably do because like I said ... I want cyanogenmod on my phone ... might be a tad bit out of my league but that's how you learn right ;-)

I'm embarrased to say this... but I CAN NOT... FOR THE LIFE of me figure out how to get this phone into STOCK!!! recovery mode... I've never seen an android that didn't have one... usually it's something like VOL DOWN + POWER ... but this phone no matter what I do just boots normal mode

I'm sure you could create an UPDATE.ZIP and place on the root of your SD card and if you can boot into recovery mode... possibly you can fix bricked that way... trick is... I'm still having trouble just trying to get into the stock recovery lol :P

Ok, rooted, made a system.img dump, installed CWM, and so far everything seems fine. Everything went through without error. So far I use adb to get into recovery, have not tried any other method. Making a nandroid backup right now as we speak. Does seem to take much longer than most other android devices I've used. Very happy about all this
Now lets start cooking up some crac... I mean roms :-P lol

Default Cannot backup without sdcard?

I installed Clockwork Recovery via the free version of ROM Manager from Google Play. I rebooted into recovery via Quick Boot and tried to make a backup. I got an error similar to "Cannot mount backup path". I tried to mount the SD card, but it failed. I have no external SD card installed in my phone. Is an SD card required to make backups on this phone?

my apologies, seems there are some differences between it and the connect.

compiling a new test version now, REALLY wish i had known this prior to submitting. as it stands you guys might have to use official cwm and then if you wanna use internal storage use the installer

replace the other cwm with this one (in the installer .zip)
