Default [RECOVERY] LTE2 Recovery App now with Touch.

Hello folks, as you all may heard I got a LG Spirit to dev with... and yes I still hate locked bootloaders.

But I have reworked one of 985hPatKicK's LTE2 recoveries with CWM Touch

Just download and install the apk.

lte2_l1m_recovery.apk

NOTE!!: MAKE A BACKUP!!! If you get stuck in CWM, just restore a backup and it will then boot back to the os.

Note to Motion user, this recovery is HUGE and almost unreadable on the Motion!!! You been warned.

PG am I doing something wrong?

I clicked the top button then after it said ok I clicked on the bottom button to boot into recovery.

I click on reboot system now in recovery but it boots back into recovery. Tried a few times. I then pulled the battery, but still boots into recovery. lol

Any ideas?

Ok I'm back in biz. lol Restored my backup.

I gotta say this recovery is sweet. It has more options and restores a backup much faster than the non-touch version. Plus I noticed the cube actually spins on this one. lol

I have the same problem. I uninstalled the old Recovery, then installed the Touch CWM. It seems to have erased everything on my phone except for the Clockwork directory. Wont boot into anything but CWM.

I tried to restore but it says "Couldn't open directory. No files found" Might be related to my whole phone being erased lmao. Luckily we have that nifty unbrick guide. Geez Playful happy April Fools Day to you too. Just kidding man thanks for all the hard work. We all know this can happen especially with Zero Day apps.

I am (was) running the Katana aosp fyi...

In the recovery go down more to the other option that says restore from external sd. The restore option at the top gives that error because it's to restore from internal.

Yeah... I think I reformatted my Ext at some point recently... So thats a no go too. No worries...I screw up my phone every week or so lol. Shoulda seen what I did to my motion. Turns out you shouldn't put random software from a different phone on one. Anyway, not sure what caused he issue for me and GT, but people need to DO A COMPLETE NANDROID BACKUP TO EXT before flashing


So... the fact that the Touch kept coming on at boot makes me wonder if we can use it as a true CWM and access it if we are bricked normally...

So after I reinstalled KatanaV2 and the Touch Recovery things now seem ok. Not sure what caused the hiccup but I will leave that to the Pros.

You had it installed with root tho, right?
Might be the diff there since the root script installs it to system/app.

Just unbricked both Spirits which were stuck on the touch recovery. Does not work. It is not worth using touch over the button method. My wife was a little mad that I had to test on her Spirit too but I had to know if this was a wide spread issue.

I find it very worth it, as I am in recovery ALOT, but I've not experienced any touch points being off and I have been playing with it for the past week.

Sorry it didnt work for you tho.

I also have it packed with a modded spirited_away that installs it to system/app (which I havent experienced getting stuck with). It also includes files for linux & osx.

PG quick question. I was thinking of doing this....

What do you think of a flashable pack that deletes the old recovery and flashes your new one to system directory. Do you think I'll have better luck with this?

I agree... I'm in recovery many times throughout the day so having a bada$$ recovery like this is necessary.

Also I was reading through the thread and I think some of you guys are getting a bit hasty. Lets keep it cool.

no problem. I was frustrated too and learned that trick after the 2nd time. lol

The touch calibration issue you had tho I have no clue on. Even with the touch on the motion and it being HUGE, it worked correctly.

lol I just found your Black Plague wallpaper on google. I'm thinking of doing a theme based on it. The red glowing eyes would look sick in the system menus.

I got stuck in a boot loop so I reflashed katana after formating /system. After it restarted I installed this recovery and it works with out any problems. Maybe if you install this one with out having already installed the other recovery it will work fine

Maybe that's why it works for me also because when I used sd maid I would have to install it again to get to recovery

It looks like you have to uninstall the old recovery first. Then install this one to prevent recovery loop

I did that before I installed it the first time and still got the loop. I don't know how to uninstall the recovery info that 2nd init installs itself

Thanks PG, is there a button combo to get into cwm from power off. I tried the one mentioned before but it said toggle vol+/vol- but that never worked for me. Couldn't understand which one to press first or how many times

hold power, when LG logo appears release power and toggle vol-+ repeatedly.

Doing it with the stock ROM is hit or miss.

This is what PG told me in the other thread that he does to get into the lte2 recovery....

"From power off, hold power n vol+ til the lg logo appears, let off power n toggle vol-+."

edit: PG just ninja'd me lol
