Cool Finally Custom Recovery for 2.2.1 stock phones !!!!!!

Wow almost unbelievable right? But trust me here is the custom recovery for phones that came with 2.2.1 when they were bought.

This is a adapted or modified version of getitnowmarketing custom recovery for the Optimus M. Fixed by me to make it work on 2.2.1 phones.



To flash the recovery follow these steps:

Download the recovery image and flash_image here extract it and copy it to your sdcard

Connect your phone to the computer and enable usb debugging (settings > aplications > development and click on usb debugging) *Make sure that USB STORAGE is disabled*

Open up cmd and get adb shell to work
After the adb shell command type: su to get root priviledges (the # symbol)

After the # symbol type:

# mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock5 /system

# cat /sdcard/flash_image > /system/bin/flash_image

# chmod 755 /system/bin/flash_image

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

# mount -o remount,ro -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock5 /system

# flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-2.2.1-joneidy.img

Do not type the # symbol it`s just for reference

If there is an error after mv /system/etc/install-recovery.sh /system/etc/install-recovery.sh.bak just ignore it. It will not make a difference or give a problem.

If you get an out of memory error; reboot your phone and try it again.

After all those commands recovery is installed.

To access recovery shut your phone off,
When it`s completely off press these buttons to go to recovery: Vol down+ Home +Power until recovery appears.
Or on adb type: adb reboot recovery
Also you can download anreboot from market to get to recovery

To move on recovery use the vol-up and down to navigate in the menu
Menu button is used to select something or as an OK button
The back button is used to go back.

Every time you enter recovery you will see a boot error ignore it, it`s just normal.

*Do not flash any roms from 2.2; they will not work on your phone. New custom rom by teamchickeneater for 2.2.1 stock phones here*

Very special thanks to asadullah for all his time and effort he putted into this.
Also for all his knowledge.

SWEET!! Worked on first try.

The only error I got was already mentioned and looks like this for others who are worried they are doing something wrong.

once you enter:
# mv /system/etc/install-recovery.sh /system/etc/install-recovery.sh.bak

you might get:
failed on '/system/etc/install-recovery.sh' - No such file or directory (don't worry and keep moving your almost there!!!)

now that I'm finally capable or accessing the customer recovery. I assume this link will finally apply:
Custom Recovery MS690 Optimus M

ROM Zero is for 2.2 and currently there is no custom rom for 2.2.1 ver, correct?

Default Blank screen Instead Of recovery mode

Great post! Unfortunately this is'nt working for me. I've succesfully rooted my 2.2.1 using your guide, now when im in android sdk entering cat /sdcard/flash_image > /systeI/bin/flash_image
I get an error message saying cannot locate file or something to that effect. I am absolutely positive that I've extracted the flash image and recovery image to my sd card. Please Help!!

Here's a funny question. My Android system recovery menu has at the bottom

Build : RA-thuderc-metro-v1.2.0-GNM
E:Bad boot message
"
My question is.... should I see that build name below? I still had that from the original customer recovery I listed above from previously trying.

Check your typing.. I know I flipped a couple characters and currently see system mispelled. you'll get that if you didn't type the path correctly. And double check spacing

@Hav0kk Thanks but I finally figured it out after about an hour of trial and error. It looks like the flash and recovery images should NOT be extracted to get sd root, instead the .ZIP should be copied to sd root. This is the only way vista recognized the flash image.

When I run custom recovery I attempt to create

- Nand backup + ext backup + .android_secure

it starts to perform backup and errors out to:

Run 'nandroid-mobile.sh' via adb!

any ideas on why I get this error?

The problem is probably because you dont`t have enough space on your sdcard. I get the same error too when doing it. I think it`s the space on the sdcard. All others options to backup work. I say that because I already tried all of them and the only error was with - Nand backup + ext backup + .android_secure

I rooted my optimus M 2.2 with z4root

then did a stupid thing to Install ROM manager

long story short. after days of reading i managed to unbrick my phone

thanks to Andyo posts

I am still on android 2.2 its now rooted.

but i cannot use the radio signal from metro pcs

when i go to settings>status> my phone number is 000-000-0000
my MIN is 0000000000 my MEID HEX is A00000000000

I also installed 2.2.1 doing custom recovery but no matter what i do:
factory reset
downgrade to 2.2
upgrade to 2.2.1

I still cannot get data working.

I also followed the "Root 2.2.1 and get Data WORKING!!" but no luck for me.

I try to follow LG automatic update I go to recovery it detects my phone it passes the s/w check up but when it reaches "phone number" it cannot see my phone number and it gives me an error saying there is no update for my phone no matter if I have 2.2 or 2.2.1

please help.

@dorianx I had a similar thing happen to me the other day when I flashed rom zero to my phone (an optimus v) I lost my min and msid. Fortunately I keep photo backups of qpst settings so after about an hour with a hindu guy on the phone I finally got it fixed. Somehow your mdn, min and meid hex got lost. There's no way to get them back unless you talk metro into giving you them or have them written down. Then you use cdma workshop and qpst to fix your settings.

P.S. I take no responsibility for what you do.

@asadullah
Thank you very much. for your promp answer. And in No way will i blame or make any sort of bad remark towards you guys. on the contrary i am grateful

you guys are truly helpful.

I followed all guides to root 2.2.1 and they work
I also used the downgrader guide and they all work for me.

no matter what i do my phone number is 000-000-0000
my MIN is 0000000000 my MEID HEX is A00000000000

WHat i will do is go to metro pcs store and deal with them directly

in hopes that i might help somebody let me tell you what happened

I had 2.2 firm ware. rooted using z4root

then tried to create a back up with ROM manager then my phone turned off and got a screen when
I plugged the phone into the computer
Fastboot mode started
udc_started
suspend
reset
portchange
reset
portchange

from there i went to hell and back to unbrick my phone.

Default Rom for 2.2.1

Awesome job with the recovery gents! Do we have a custom Rom compatible with 2.2.1 yet?

I don't believe thats the issue with 4 gigs of free space on the sd card... I'm really feeling as if it has to do with having two img's on my sd card and it pulls the thunder image first. once I get home... i'll remove the img from my card and attempt the process one more time.

I'm confident thats the issue happening. Lesson of the day is remove any old image you may have placed in your phone from previous posts. make sure the only image you have on your phone is the one provided above.

Will update later tonight.

The MEID can be converted using a MEID to Hex calculator look around online. The MEID is located under the battery on the sticker (18 digits). You have all the information you need to recover the missing data provided you know your phone number already. The only time your MIN and your phone number don't match is when there is a port occuring. Other than that they generally are the same number. Thats how it was done back in the day when porting was still a new thing

The reason you got this error is because you have to use ADB shell from a computer to run the nand backup, I had the same issue.

ah hah! I did it directly from my phone...

I still need to remove the other image. So, what i'll do is try it with the thunder.img removed from the phone. if I get it again... i'll attempt again from pc.

more curiousity than concern at this point

lol well if it works for you let me know, i kept trying to run it right off the phone but it wouldn't work so i used adb shell to run it, make sure you have about 500mb free space tho,

Well that was uneventful. I plugged my phone up... enabled usb and went to my sd card directory and deleted the thunder image originally d/l'ed but never deleted (thunder image is part of the customer recovery for stock 2.2's)
Placed phone back into debug mode. Went through the full process to recover in joneidy's recovery image and everything went through like clockwork and powered the phone off.

So when I turned the phone on via POWER + HOME + Volume DOWN
My customer recovery comes up and was hoping I'd see joneidy's customer recovery labeled in the build info below... and what do I see? IT STILL SAYS THUNDER-BLAHBLAHBLAHBLAH.

Any ideas? I'm sure if I can remove the image entirely I'd be able to enter joneidy recovery image and complete my nandroid backup.

Any ideas? I'm sure if I can remove the image entirely I'd be able to enter joneidy recovery image and complete my nandroid backup.
i have that same issue!! im going to try something though. if you want to test it first go ahead ;D!

my plan is to go and flash in the recovery made for 2.2 *hopefully that will overwrite the one there*
then REflash this one in.

my guess is flash_image is noticing the files are closely the same and saying "its already there so i won't change this"

EDIT_____

tried and it failed. sorry to say but my method of trying to update it didn't work either

After using his recovery and instructions my recovery works, but like already posted I am not getting the joneidy image either mine says
Build : RA-thunderc-Metro-v1.2.0-GNM

I dont know if that background pic in the first post is part of the new image or not but I dont have that, mine is like his original pic
Though everything is working, which is good.
I also installed the new rom Love the honeycomb start up, no more metropcs.

That was why I said a couple of post above. To everyone who had already download the old recovery to download and flash the new one with a couple of fixes and a new image.
LOL

BTW the custom rom is right here

Edit: My bad people I was linking to the old recovery. Now I`m linking to the new one. Just download it and flashed it and it will look as the picture above.

How can I use this custom recovery to flash my phone back to the original 2.2.1 stock rom that I rooted my phone with. Id like to go some experimenting but I'd like to have a fail safe to go back to.

Ok folks. I removed the original custom recovery and image. Redownloaded and finally see the joneidy build.
and on a side note i'm glad you changed the background. helps confirm we have the right recovery running.

Update:

attempting to complete my nand backup and i'm still getting the Error : Run 'nandroid-mobile.sh' via adb!

should I just do as requested and follow the request to run nandroid-mobile.sh? or is there something i'm missing? Last time I was told it's a space issue.. but I have plenty of space on my sd card 4gigs free.

the floor is open

I did 2 backups, prior to flashing this one today. The first went as expected the second said the same error run from adb, I did so and then today after flashing this one I did a back up and it was normal.

I tried a couple times but got the same message. Derno... I've read other forums and it seems there is a lot of speculation as to what the fix is but the bottom line is there seems to be no specific reason.

1. battery low
2. no space
3. randomly works with doing nothing different.
4. blessing from witch doctor. I think his name is Ted.

I'm in debug mode when doing this. I don't think you could navigate otherwise in adb

I'm gonna keep trying and see if it's just tricky or until someone give me another solution to try.

Update::: This was all done not plugged into the pc.
4:44p Nandbackup complete (first time I tried)
4:45p Nandbackup + .android_secure complete (first time I tried)
4:47p Nandroid + ext (Error MSG : run 'nandroid-mobiel.sh' via adb!)
4:49p Nandroid + ext backup + .android_secure (Error MSG : run 'nandroid-mobiel.sh' via adb!)

BTW: On all the other posts I made about this I never once tried the first two... so go figure. If anyone else runs into this... try the first two and if you feel saucey attempt the others and see if you get the same results. If anyone knows what the differences are between the backups please do tell so all knows if this is a priority or not.

well i've had that issue too but for all the options. im not sure exactly the diff in them but i know it has to do with how much info is saved into the backups.

i did however get a nand backup in adb when connecting my phone to the pc.

all i did was type "adb shell" then "nandroid-mobile.sh" plus i thin it wanted me to add -b to the second input but it worked none the less.

I'm pretty sure the 3rd and 4th only work after you have created partitions which is why it errors out.

Hey guys, where do I type

Code:
Open up cmd and get adb shell to work 
After the adb shell command type: su to get root priviledges (the # symbol)

After the # symbol type:

# mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock5 /system
 
# cat /sdcard/flash_image > /system/bin/flash_image
 
# chmod 755 /system/bin/flash_image
 
# mv /system/etc/install-recovery.sh /system/etc/install-recovery.sh.bak
 
# mount -o remount,ro -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock5 /system
 
# flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-2.2.1-joneidy.img
I type adb shell in the windows cmd and I get command not recognized?
Where do I type adb shell? I dont have a terminal on my phone I just finished with the following post and dont have service http://androidforums.com/optimus-m-all-things-root/279318-root-2-2-1-get-data-working-4.html#post2500855

Ok I got adb shell to work an I got the # sign. Once I enter the first command and hit enter the output it gives me is the same as the input? Is this ok?
And the second command says No such file or directory?

Did you possibly accidentally set AnReboot to deny in Superuser? I've done something similar before and was confused for a bit till I checked there

Just curious, is ext backup and .android_secure important? i tryed to run the option with all and i got Error :run 'nandroid-mobile.sh' via adb.

just doing Nand backup alone worked perfectly.

if the others arnt important i wont bother with it

Its not from lack of space on Sdcard since i have 14Gb free
