Default [Recovery] CWM-Green w/BacksideUpdater Auto-Install

Updated 05022012!

Introducing CWM Green Recovery

Download CWM-Green-recovery-05022012.img here
md5sum e3963b7709fe23c2ae5667e318e50d96

A ClockworkMod 5.0.2.8 based recovery for the Optimus V
With extended support for automatic installation of ROM packages
Via the BacksideUpdater

See Details of CWM-Green and the BacksideUpdater Auto-Install Here

Do Not Flash A Radio With This Recovery!

The radio updates are known to be dangerous and can/will brick your phone!

BacksideUpdater Auto-Install
Note- This video is of V2.2, will make one of V3.3 soon

Why another recovery?
Current recoveries for the Optimus V have some built in support for automatic installation of OTA and update packages. This has never been utilized by ROM developers for the OV, and I hope to change that by making the process a little less scary for everyone. Together with the BacksideUpdater, you can now quickly and effortlessly install ROM updates!

What's different?
--For manual usage by rebooting into recovery, I've added the ability to wipe cache and dalvik cache together.
(will be adding option to format boot+system+data as well)
--For automatic installation, I've added the ability to wipe cache and dalvik cache together, and enabled
the text-gui during the auto-install process so you can see what is happening.
--Based off IHO recovery source, with fix for UMS (Universal Mass Storage), so you can mount your sdcard in recovery
--Home key is the select now, no more messing with that two-stage camera key (always worried it would break)

--And of course I made it Green

Installation Instructions:
1-- Download CWM-Green-recovery-05022012.img to your sdcard
2-- Open Terminal emulator (available in the Play Store)
3-- Type the following two lines:
Code:
su
flash_image recovery /sdcard/CWM-Green-Recovery-05022012.img
Note- change /sdcard to where you put the zip file, ex: /sdcard/download/CWM-Green-Recovery-05022012.zip

Note to ROM devs - The link to details has the info for including the BacksideUpdater in your ROM, to make the upgrade process simple and worry free for your users, regardless of their technical abilities!

Thanks to Koush for the original CWM code base, Blarf for help in fixing the UMS bug in IHO, nijel for hitting me over the head with a brick, the CM team, the AOSP team, BobZhome, mrg666, tdm, LeslieAnn, Whyzor, gannon, tvall, and a whole lot more!

Great work Jerry, tested and works well on my newer screen. Just an FYI that Flash GUI expects the filename to contain recovery in all lower case letters and will not work otherwise. Have to either rename the file or use flash_image from the terminal.

When I downloaded, I got a 4 MB file with a .txt extention: Download CWM-Green-Recovery-04172012.txt

Is this correct?

(FYI: I always have to click the "try again" button on Mediafire when I attempt to download on my phone: the first click never initiates a download)

Runs great on my first gen V (but you already knew that ) but I have three questions.
1) I noticed you gave it a BACKside style version number, does that mean we should look forward to regular updates?
2) If so, will the BACKside updater handle that as well? That would be a very nice feature.
3) I'm starting to itch, is there anything that I can do about that green? (Like grab the source and compile my own or something like that?)

::Edit:: What's the MD5 for this?

rename it to .img, then it should flash just fine.

::Edit:: What's the MD5 for this?
1) Yes, there will be some updates, but not as many as BACKside gets
2) The newest version of BacksideUpdater shows the lastest CWM-Green-Recovery at the bottom of the Show All Versions list (press menu-key)
3) The source is available at my git, /bootable/recovery, check the history for the easiest way to find where I changed the colors. Here's the steps to build (requires a full IHO build environment):
Code:
cd andriod/WORKING_DIRECTORY
. build/envsetup.sh
lunch (choose vm670-eng)
make recoveryimage

Sometimes phone browsers or the websites they are downloading from change the file extension to txt to prevent the browser from opening a .img file as an image.

I have added a check for that situation in the BacksideUpdater V3.2, and it will automatically convert the file extension from .txt to .img when you download it. So long as you use the BacksideUpdater in the future, this shouldn't be an issue anylonger.

Your recovery actually boots on the Optimus M!! but the buttons aren't mapped correctly, all I can do is press Volume Down to go up....Menu button goes back, Home button goes back...Back button does nothing, search button does nothing, Camera button does nothing, Volume Up does nothing, Power button does what it's supposed to (change to the ROM Manager logo and hide menu).

Yes, using this after you have aleady flashed the radio is fine, just don't use it to flash the radio itself.

So you are using BobZhome's kernel for the M? If so, I should be able to build a version of CWM-Green with proper button mapping for you. I'll need to know the kernel you are using so I can ask Bob for the correct zImage, and I'll need to know the partition sizes on your phone. Please open terminal and type in the following command and post the output here (should be able to do it with ADB if that's easier to C&P):
Code:
su
cat /proc/mtd

Looks like you have everything needed to make CWM-Green-Recovery for the M.

PM me so we can set up a time mon-tues to get on chat and work this out.

Till then, if you know anyone with a rooted stock OM, have them run the same command above, so we can be sure the original partitions match.

I'm actually on stock right now, I was testing a new root method that someone else made, it failed, but hey you don't need to be rooted to run that command

I have used this recovery to make a backup, flash the backup, flash an update, flash a backup that was made from another recovery, flash a ROM that was not signed with signature verification turned off, and used this recovery with the new BACKside updater v3.2 with auto installer to install a ROM (flashed back to an older ROM). Everything worked flawlessly.
Will work on the partitioning option,mount SD card option, and anything else I forgot to checkout next.

I've found a problem with the recovery. I was trying to flash tdm's AOKP alpha 8, and got the "assert failed getprop ro.product.device" error. I tried twice, toggling assert both times, same error. Tried CM9 alpha 8 and got the same result. Both had matching md5's so the downloads were okay. Flashed bobz back on it, the AOKP flashed fine. Just thought you'd want to know.

After playing with AOKP for about an hour, I went to restore my nandroid but it failed with an error about system img not found. I was able to restore my nandroid of 0401, use the Backside updater to flash your recovery again, then I was able to restore my nandroid of 0417, and all is good. Again, just felt this information would be useful to you.

Open up the zip and go to /META-INF/com/(bottom folder)/(bottom folder)/ updater-script and open the updater-script with notepad
Delete the line near the beginning that says "assert.....................;" delete all in the quotes including the ";"

"..." stands for whatever it says xD

I'd found that solution as well, it was just easier for me to switch recoveries and back.

Pretty sure I've got that bug nailed. It's a matter of the changes we made to the build environment in order to get accepted into CM. The device folder now has thunderc_VM670 instead of just thunderc. The build environment is setup to use that, but can be changed.

New build of CWM-Green is up, as well as accompanying changes to BacksideUpdater!

CWM-Green-recovery-05022012.img
md5sum e3963b7709fe23c2ae5667e318e50d96
See my repos for code changes: github.com/jerryscript

CWM-Green:
--Fixed issue preventing asserts based zip files from installing (ie: ICS requires thunderc)
--Added Verify option to backup menu (checks md5sums to verify, helps with sd-ext issues)
--Added auto backup (wipes cache+dalvik first)
--Added auto restore with verification (from CWM compatible nandroid backups)
--Added full wipe/format + auto-install
--Made indeterminate progress bar visible for all operations of unknown duration

BacksideUpdater:
--Added option to menu for Backup/Restore
--Added list of options for installation:
---- Manual
---- Automatic
---- Full Wipe/Format + Auto-Install
--Added option to menu to install any ROM or Theme zip file (including ICS zips)

Thanks as always to Blarf, BobZhome, tdm, LeslieAnn, Koush, the CM team, the AOSP team, and a whole lot more!

I think I'm going to plan an updating weekend with my phone. I'm currently have on my phone the cwm-based-recovery v4.0.1.5 and a backside rom from 20120109. What's the best course of action? Flash the new recovery, and then install the new rom? Do I need to do anything to remove the current recovery? Thanks in advance!

Safest method:
1- Reboot recovery, create a backup
2- Reboot phone
3- Install latest CWM-Green-recovery
4- Reboot recovery, wipe cache + dalvik-cache
5- Select zip from sdcard to install ROM zip file
6- Reboot, be patient, enjoy.

Absolutely, only the BacksideUpdater's automatic features require CWM-Green.

When you say for the recovery: --Added full wipe/format + auto-install
Does that mean I can now use the "wipe data/factory reset" to format /boot, /system, /data, /cache, and /sd-ext?

I added that to the auto-install features, it's not in the menus of the recovery itself. You use the BacksideUpdater to access the automatic features.

noooooooooose.. I thought it was to be added into the recovery itself. Is that a feature you're considering to add in the future though?

I bricked my phone once,long story short I paid 40.00 to unbrick my phone, got it back totally stock minus boot animation,lost everything on sd card,got contacts back from Google. Right now I have titanium backup,I am rooted,superuser,file expert, android file verifier,busybox,box.net.
Right now I just want a recovery so I can do a nandroid backup.
Can I put this on my phone and do the backup,eventually I want to install backside rom but I'm just not ready.
If someone could tell me how to do this I would be so grateful, thank you so much.I don't have a pc.
Pretty new to all of this!!!

My Optimus V is rooted.

I installed the terminal emulator from the play store.

I downloaded CWM-Green-Recovery-05022012.img to the root of my SD card.

I tried to run the commands as prescribed:
su

then

flash_image recovery /sdcard/CWM-Green-Recovery-05022012.img

but I get the following error:
mount: No such file or directory
mount: No such file or directory

(yes, it repeats)

I exited, and ran the following command

ls /sdcard/

The CWM-Green-Recovery-05022012.img file was listed.

I tried renaming the file to be all lower case, per the suggestion in the 1st respons in this thread: No difference.

I tried /mnt/sdcard/ and /mnt/
No luck.

Any ideas?

Did you copy it to SD card? Rename it recovery.img and try that,make sure its on the root of the SD card

It would now be :
flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery.img

Have you put the flash_image program on your phone?

Stock rom does not have flash_image included so you have to download it and put it on phone. This sounds like your issue.

You can get the flash_image file here...
http://cyanogen-files.carneeki.net/flash_image.zip

Download the zip at above URL and unzip it then copy the flash_image file to your sdcard then run the following in terminal

su

mount -o rw,remount /system /system

cp /sdcard/flash_image /system/bin/flash_image

chmod 755 /system/bin/flash_image

mount -o ro,remount /system /system

*I'd make sure superuser is up to date by checking play store and then open superuser and go to settings and make sure binaries are up to date. If not you may get an error on 2nd command. After doing the above proceed with trying to flash recovery

If you wanna save some typing you can also use a root file manager to copy flash_image from the sdcard to /system/bin and then just run the chmod line in terminal followed by the commands to flash the recovery.

The proper code for getting the flash_image and recovery installed on the LG Optimus V is:
From a terminal emulator type in this:
(line #1) su(return) [If using a command Prompt type in: adb shell (return) instead]
(line #2) mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /system /system(return)
(line #3) cat /sdcard/flash_image > /system/bin/flash_image(return)
(line #4) chmod 755 /system/bin/flash_image(return)
(line #5) flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery.img(or however it's named exactly, on the sd card) (return) If you get a # after typing all that in, continue with the sixth line of code. If you did not, or got an error anywhere, start over.
(line #6) reboot recovery(return)


(return)=do not type this. Just hit the enter key(the one on the bottom right)
(line #) don't type this in.

The code I posted also works as I have used it. I did however notice I stuck a > in the cp line and that's not needed. Corrected it and just tried and works fine

I got a "#" after entering line #5.
But I got a "reboot_recovery: not found" after entering line #6.

Any thoughts?

Sorry, Erthnfire78 is correct.
I copied it over from another guide of mine where I had the spaces marked with red underscores. It didn't paste with the red color on the under scores so I had to delete the underscores that where marking the spaces. Missed that one some how.

for some reason my reply posts don't have the options at the top, or the added emoticons.
I don't even have a advanced mode.
