Outdated : New thread All In One Recovery Thread
I could be missing something since I'm attempting to read this with my Droid, but is there a download link for the recovery.img itself?
By the way, awesome job! Glad you finally got it going!
Changed the download link to make it stickout more.
Do you have any idea if this will fix the 50% bug? If I got it right this is technically an image from your phone, so if you dont have the bug and I push this to my phone it will replace the OS and no bug?
No its a custom recovery that will make rooting very easy and allow you to nandroid backup and allow installing custom roms ie updates.zip. This doesn't touch the OS unless you install a custom rom.
Well dang it... guess I gotta wait for Froyo now =/
Well if someone wants to build froyo from AOSP we now have the means to test it and flash it.
We could technically make a Froyo port from another device. I'm going to chat with Peter Alfonso to see if he feels like it..
Well it would be great to beat LG at their own job lol. I think LG is gonna take their time releasing Froyo, we'll be lucky if we get it before the year is over
Pete said that he is not that experienced at porting but will be in the coming months.
Incredible! Drellisdee, you are my new hero
hey guys i am going nuts here. i cannot seem to get my phone to boot into bootloader, i send the command adb reboot-bootloader and it just restarts the phone and loads back into the OS. i am running the V9 build ( i was an idiot and installed the update before realizing that it would break my root) can anyone help me? if you can IM me its zacwhite01 at gmail dot com
hey guys i was able to reflash my phone back to v6, so now i will hopefully get this applied
hey guys whats the chance of actually flashing this too the rom and configuring a key combination to the kb?
To permanantly flash it copy recovery-RA_GNM_1.13.img to root of sdcard. Once booted into my temp recovery (fastboot boot recovery-RA_GNM_1.13.img) use command adb shell
flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-RA_GNM_1.13.img
I may be wrong, but isn't SEND+MENU+PWR on boot for recovery?
I'll be damned that worked when custom recovery was flashed. Didn't work on stock. Updating instructions and thats awesome because now a bad boot.img will not brick phone as you can boot recovery with those keys.
Would it be possible to then use something like the quick boot app to force restart to recovery from SW?
ED: Well if SEND+MENU+PWR works after it has been flashed then I guess there is no point
I dont understand. How do you do the Send+Menu+Pwr thing. I Hold the buttons down when its off and nothing happens..... (Noob)
I haven't had a chance to test it yet as I haven't flashed the recovery image. If someone could test this that would be great, because ATM there is no way to recover from a bad flash. If we can verify that flashing the recovery image and using send+menu+pwr keypress at boot it will be much "safer" to go forward
lol, first you have to flash the recovery image too your sdcard. after doing that you can access the recovery menu by holding Send+Menu+Power.
if your wondering how to flash to your sdcard, the instructions are a couple posts up from drellisdee.
i can verify that it works, i tested it 5 times just too be sure
now all we need is someone to release a 2.2 image and they will be worshipped by the ally community
Close its not flashed to your sd card but to the nand flash on your device. The img is copied to your sdcard per my instructions and is flashed to nand using the flash_image.
lol ok, i feel blonde now
If you dont mind have a application that does this all self automatically.
hey drellisdee what is that flash_image file thats attached to your first post?
