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.
