    Alot of people seem to be having issues with the clockwork recovery. Should have just used drellisdee's recovery in the first place. ;)

    Everyone keeps saying it has problems, but no one will say what they are. I use clockworkmod recovery and don't have any issues.
     
  5. yeah i didnt either.. if they would tell me what it is i could help but no.. they havent.

    I have a feeling it's alot of inexperienced users having trouble. Seems that way from what I see here on the forums. I'm sure it's a fine recovery, i do however feel the more "automatic" you make mods like this, the less control the end user has when it comes to diagnostics after something has gone wrong. Personally I would rather have control over the code and learn what it means before making decisions that could technically ruin the device.

    No knocking the clockwork recovery or rom manager, just my personal opinion.
     
  7. exactly
    things become ALOT harder unless you do it yourself and your are familiar with wth is going on lol. I learned that one the hard way. Espcecially when you cook roms for WinMo and HTC ;/ lol. Well if they cant do what i just told em then theyre pretty "inexperienced" or lazy....

    It's definitely daunting, especially for what I believe are alot of users new to the smartphone thing. Perhaps new to linux also. Some to computers even :rolleyes:

    I think vmanisme's sticky is a great way to educate new users before they make the jump into rooting and romin'. I hope additions to that sticky continue, perhaps written even in "layman's" terms.
     
  9. KDE and redhat were the first ones i used. it was on an acer but anyway there are alot of people that are new to the smartphone scene and some of them are so bad its taking the smart out of smartphone lol. Vman's sticky is genius and they should read that first instead of lurking around in the middle of the "book" we have going on here lol. oh and btw, here is Vmans sticky for all newbies > http://androidforums.com/lg-ally/151233-lg-ally-guide-updated-2-29pm-est-8-30-2010-a.html Thanks to Vmanisme, we have this spectactular guide :) and the root guide... i forgot lol. its the first one in All Things Root on this forum.

    The one problem I have with CWR is that any time I need to use it I have to flash it. If I don't flash it every time, the phone will attempt to reboot into recovery and just restart instead of going into recovery. Ex. I wanted to make a backup of my phone and when I clicked backup rom the phone would restart, show the lg logo then the android with the exclamation mark logo and then restart back to lg logo then the vzw logo and boot the phone. I have to go back into rom manager and flash cwr and then I can make my backup. This happens every time
     
  12. That has never happened to me. Try to uninstall rom manager and install another recovery doing what i told you to do and then reinstall rom manager that might help.

    That happened to me with my recovery too. You need to flash stock recovery back. I posted it and steps a while ago.

    Here was my issue with the app...

    First of all, I am a new user yes, but don't discredit me. I had step-by-step help by someone who knows what they are doing, and they have absolutely no idea what is happening, either.

    I did everything in the steps to install Velocity... and was getting help by not only one, but two people who both know how to use it. When I tried backing up my current Rom, everything was fine at first. It went to the LG screen but no further. The LG screen is the only thing that was there. So, I had to take the battery out and I tried again. No luck again. So, I tried again and again and again and again. No luck, and I kept having to take the battery out. I only had the LG Screen on.

    NOW, I try to do a hard reset to just reset my phone, and the same thing... it won't get passed the LG screen. So, I tried going to Settings > Privacy > Restore to Factory Default (or whatever it's called), and the same thing. The LG screen just doesn't leave. And I have to take the battery out. So, I'm kinda screwed. Both people agreed it is probably an issue with clockwork.

    I just want to hard reset my phone and be done with it, and I can't!!!

    i've locked my phone a few times.. after factory reset did you take out the battery and hold down power button for like 30 sec? i do this then it takes a few min of just the lg screen not doing anything and then it re sets .. it took a few tries but it worked for me.. good luck

    I can confirm robersonj problem. As i was one of the people trying to help her. Seems like to me clockwork refused to fully flash the recovery no matter how many times she flashed it and resulted in a corrupted recovery image.

    An experience i had today. I was booted in clockwork taking some screen shots (using my PC to take the screenshots.) When my phone randomly rebooted and did a factory reset. Strange eh?

    So on that note i no longer am touching clockwork and sticking with amon-ra (drellisdee's one.)

    I made the switch from Clockwork to drellisdee's recovery tool. After clockwork failed me at flashing recovery it was time for the switch. I would try to boot into recovery and I would just get the fastloader blue screen. Now I don't have to worry about that happening.

    I had the same problem with clockwork, flash the recovery and reboot then get stuck at the LG logo. However, I ended up flashing it once or twice more and it has worked flawlessly since. Now I can backup/restore my phone from any rom and go back to stock very easily.
