Ok. I've got CWM now as well. This is awesome! As soon as I had it on, I rebooted into recovery and made a nand backup. I was on the edge of my seat for a moment waiting for the recovery to boot. I was just a little anxious that it had actually flashed. Good to go though.

Default CWM for LG Optimus M + deletes GPS Data a file.

That is the Spectrum Exploit blowing up your phone. It dosen't just move it for a sec. then put it back, it just tosses it to outerspace. So next sys update= No Wifi or Data, Voila!


But I could be wrong, I really just got into programming and modding 10 minutes ago.

As shown by my post above yours (post #51), I have CWM on my OM+ now, using the method provided in the op. I didn't loose data or wifi. I have used both since performing this.

indeed you are correct in that it tosses them away, thats because if you reboot it recreates it. they are config files for gps.

I clearly stated I just got here ten minutes ago: duly in reference to my nubile entrance to the android interface. I lost all data after running the exploit so I went looking for obvious answers like any intelligent person would.

I will apologize to Mr. penguin for detracting from his efforts, which he kindly offers for free.
To you Mr. God: i wish to punch you soundly on the nose at our next meeting if you would allow please.

Getting a clue in the arena of porting and modding takes considerable time and investment. If I do aspire to proficiency, it would only be attained on the shoulders of greatness like yourself, Mr. Penguin, Kush, and others.
(Although, that fact does not preclude me from desiring to trounce you about the head a bit, sir.)

Nevertheless, I sustain my apologies.

^ its just a config file for GPS...if it would effect anything it would be GPS...where is your proof that this method of rooting causes the phone to start bricking itself?

Anyways, if you are correct at all, as soon as a rom is compiled with everything working, this won't even matter.

did you lose data after flashing cwm? or root? because all i do is use the root exploit to gain escalated shell thus allowing me to use dd to write recovery. if it is truly the exploit then it should have occured after rooting. would you mind doing a nandroid backup and wiping everything afterwards to see if it remedies your issue? if it doesnt then you can restore everything with the nandroid

The loss of WiFi is caused by flashing PG's Plague kernel. I flashed back to my backup and WiFi restored, then I reflashed Plague and no Wifi again. I hope a fix will be released soon.

Thanks PG for your work.

Shabbypenguin has left the forum and taken his links down (see post 1 for where to find him). If you have the download that he provided, extract it on your computer. You should find a *.bat file labeled something about an installer (I can't remember the exact name). All you have to do is have your phone plugged into the computer, making sure that you are in mass storage mode, and not internet connection mode. Run the installer and it'll happen. Really, it's a pretty simple thing. I don't mind saying that I was a little uneasy about doing it, but it all worked out.

As far as loosing data or wifi, that won't happen. The wifi only goes away if you flash the overclock kernel provided by playfulgod. It allows you to overclock, but it breaks wifi. You won't loose data.

Now, if you don't have the download, go find shabbypenguin and I'm sure you'll be able to get it from him.

I wouldn't try out the cannibal touch recovery yet. So far it's only listed as being compatible with the Optimus M, and not the M+.

Hope this helps ya out. It is pretty straight forward, and as I was saying, just make sure that the phone is in mass storage mode.

Ok. From my experience, when I tried it on internet connection mode, it didn't work for me, I got into a boot loop that I had to remove the battery and then do a factory recovery to get out of (well, actually, that was when I tried to do the root procedure, and since I had to be on mass storage mode for the root, I just left it on that for the CWM install). When I did the recovery, I was on mass storage mode for the reasons stated in the previous sentence. Best of luck to ya.

Ok. I flashed this image. I changed the name to match what shabby penguin had in his installer and just used his one click to flash our to my phone. Looks nice. I haven't had opportunity to try it all yet, but I booted into it. It looks really nice. You mentioned touch, does that just mean the built in buttons on the phone; menu, home, back and search? Or do you mean the individual menu options? If it's the menu options, those didn't work a touch for me. I had to use menu for down, home for up, back was back and search was select.

Excellent! I went and flashed it this morning. I can boot into it just fine. However, I think ROM manager has changed. Before, I was able to perform a ROM backup from within RM. I think I got an update to it, and now it doesn't use my external sd card. In fact, the option is grayed out and I can't even select it. I know that isn't the problem of the recovery, just the RM app.
Edit: I'll provide a screen shot in a bit.

Well, I couldn't get a screen shot. Apparently, when it's in the recovery adb doesn't see it connected. Here's what I've got:

ROM Manager 5.0.1.4 and CWM 6.0.1.1.

This is the text on the screen:

ClockworkMod Recovery v6.0.1.1
Waiting for SD Card to mount (20s)
SD Card mounted
Verifying SD Card marker...
Error processing ROM Manager script. Please verify that you are performing the backup, restore, or ROM installation from ROM Manager v.4.4.0.0 or higher.
/tmp/recovery.log was copied to /sdcard/clockworkmod/recovery.log. Please open ROM Manager to report the issue.

So how do I report the issue?

Ok. Well I solved my difficulties. I uninstalled both RM and RM pro. I deleted the directories from the internal memory, and off the 8 Gig SD card. I rebooted just to clear cache and then reinstalled RM and RM pro. Now I can perform my backups from RM. I'm a little disappointed that it doesn't use my 8gig card any more, but, maybe in a future release. I am very happy that we now have an official CWM through ROM Manager. Thank you playfulgod, and koushik (I hope I spelled his name right).

Default Thank You

This may not be said enough.......THANK YOU!!!!!!
I now have CWM running and updated.

I did have some difficulties getting the .bat file to work correctly. This was more than likely due to the fact my M+ was already Rooted, under-clocked, and no where near stock. Working my way thru the .bat, and changing what was needed to make each command work, I finally got it to work right.

I would offer the suggestion that your M+ be stock before using unless you have a fair knowledge of Andriod/Linux systems.

Again, THANK YOU for the work everyone puts into projects like this.

Can someone give me a simplified way of updating cwm to the touch version? I have rom manager installed and even paid the 2 bucks to get the touch version and it won't update

EDIT: Got it i replaced the img file with the one on the rom manager website

I'm in the same boat. I paid the money and it said it downloaded, but the recovery looks the same.

Same.... Downloaded and installed new cwm touch. Looks almost Identical, claims it's 6.0.1.1, however it isn't touch like the link and file BOTH say.... Any suggestions?

I worked with it that way for a long time. Then after one of the recent ROM Manager updates, I decided to rehash the recovery and it changed to the touch version. Give it a try again. If it doesn't work, then try again another time.
