Default 985hPaKicK 2nd init recovery

There is a talented developer out there named 985hPaKicK

He has ported a 2nd init Recovery to the LG Optimus LTE2

I have played around with it, and it seems to work somewhat on the LG Motion

I did not obtain 985hPaKicK's permission to post this, so I hope he does not mind.

Please understand that 985hPaKicK or I DO NOT take any responsibility for any damage that can possibly happen to your phone if you install and use this.

Just some hints

After you install this and boot into recovery from the apk, press the vol up button a few times to refresh the screen, or else you will just see the LG Logo

Also do not use the Advanced\Reboot Recovery option because your data will get wiped (this is because of the boot loader)

I installed mine to the system/app folder but that was a personal preference.

985hPaKicK has also made a mostly working cm10 for the LG Optimus LTE2, I have not looked at it yet, but I may, if I find the time

https://github.com/985hPaKicK

So he is someone you guys want to befriend, and not nag at all about any thing.

I did not post this in the Optimus 4X Recovery thread, because that thread is too long and there are a lot of Off Topic posts. So can we try to keep this thread on topic and not discuss things that are not related to bootloader or 2nd init recovery PLEASE

Lets also keep the thank you posts out of this thread

Here is a thank you thread for 985hpakick, please post a thank you for him there.

Thank you thread for 985hPaKicK

I successfully made a nandroid backup, did a factory reset, reinstalled recovery, and successfully did a nandroid restore.

It works!! At least with that part.
Oh yeah, also cleared dalvik cache

I have swapped my internal memory and SD, so when I backup it said there was no /sdcard/.Android_secure or something like that (It went past this part before I could write it down) Can I just create that file/folder or should I put the SDCard back to normal first?


Anyone notice the date for the Backup? Jan 15th, **70

Can someone upload their backup from some other phone model? What's the worse that can happen, I have to restore firmware... again?

Any ideas on recovery? Please?

Perhaps use adb push?

(installed another phones boot, aboot, and recovery partitions in place of my own - i just had to restore firmware, but can't even get to e-mode now )


EDIT:
No adb until boot completed

Try booting with various buttons pressed like Vol Up or Vol Down. YES this is a shot in the dark...

1) Pull out the battery (to ensure that the really phone is turned off)

2) Reinsert the battery.

3) Without pressing the power button, simultaneously hold down both sides of the volume rocker (volume + and -)

4) Plug the USB cable into the computer USB port

5) Plug the USB cable into the phone's USB port

If you see the familiar yellow triangle, or the weird Gingerbread "firmware upgrade fail try using recovery mode", you're now in download mode.

Done, nada. Tried emode combination and firmware restore even though no display, but nothing. Broke key identifiers maybe?

the first version of CWM ?

I do not understand, there is no other CWM for this phone.

In order to flash something it has to be a flashable zip file

who made a flashable zip file ?

what does the install script look like in the flashable zipfile ?

I don't know, just searched something along the lines of cwm flash zip (this was about a month ago that I downloaded it). I attached it, of course I changed the name after I downloaded it.
Also, can someone post pictures of all the steps to restore from our recovery? Also, volume down + power to get into it, correct? Going to attempt it blind, just in case.

Also, the reason I flashed it was because I didn't think the apk was permanent, thought it was temporary, andit was the only thing I had to test a flash.

I wonder if you go to Metro and are honest if they will swap it out. And of course, by honest I mean tell them the Mayans ate your firmware.

Yeah so I did the same thing you did, just to see what would happen. Now I am permabricked too. Can someone else try it? Maybe it was just us?
