    Project Open Cannibal presents...
    Cannibal Open Touch v2.1 for LG Optimus M

    About Cannibal Open Touch:

    Why the name Cannibal Open Touch?
    Because we can. The name also embodies everything that Cannibal Open Touch is. It is no longer just a variant of ClockworkMod Recovery, it is it's own recovery by itself. Combining features from ClockworkMod 5, Team UtterChaos' Sony Xperia recovery, AmonRa 3.0.6, Xionia CWMA and a heaping helping of our own special enhancements it is truly revolutionary.

    What to do when an error occurs:
    DO NOT simply say "xxxx doesn't work" as that is highly unhelpful and will probably be ignored. Instead, post the recovery log! To grab a log when an error occurs, simply open a terminal (or command prompt if on Windows), "cd" to an easily accessible directory and execute:

    Code (Text):
    1. adb pull /tmp/recovery.log
    Paste the log as an attachment (don't paste the text inside, as it can be quite lengthy), or paste it on pastebin.com.

    If you are upgrading from a previous version of Cannibal Open Touch you must delete the settings.ini file located in the cotrecovery folder on your sdcard!

    Already have a custom recovery?
    You may use our handy Universal Installer!

    Flashing instructions:
    1. Follow these instructions (external link) for installing flash_image if you haven't already done so.
    2. Make sure USB Debugging is ON and that you have ADB access
    3. Download the Cannibal Open Touch image from the download link below.
    4. Place the recovery image on your SD Card.
    5. Fire up an ADB shell
    6. Make sure you are in a root shell. If you are not, execute the "su" command now.
    7. Execute "flash_image recovery /path/to/recovery.img" (replace /path/to/recovery.img with the ACTUAL path to the recovery image)
    8. Reboot to recovery mode
    9. PROFIT!

    There should be an option to wipe individually cache and dalvik cache instead of only full wipe and pre-flash wipe.

    We're back up. DDoS attack has been mitigated and no data has been lost. We will be migrating to a REAL webhost later this evening (one of us actually personally KNOWS the owner this time).

    We're down. Again. Official word is that our webhost is currently under a DDoS attack. We're currently running a fundraising campaign to raise funds in order to purchase some real webhosting and keep Project Open Cannibal online. If you'd like to join the cause, the WePay page is here: https://www.wepay.com/donations/project-open-cannibal-hosting

    Update on the situation:
    Our host (and the datacenter they reside in) has informed us that we have been the target of a massive DDoS attack that has been going on for two days. Our account has been suspended due to the attack bringing down their entire server. We will be offline for a small bit while we deal with the attack and get everything back online. No data has been lost.

    That will no longer be necessary (but thanks for the suggestion).

    Thanks to our friends at bestlittlehosthouse.com we are now back online and running faster than ever!

    As a preface im a noob and wish I could say i was dislexic. I have an Optimus S lg670 v2.2.2 running on ZVD baseband. I mistakenly downloaded cannibal v2.1 for optimus M instead of v1.2 for Optimus S. I ran flash_image binary and the v2.1 img from sd card. Result: stuck in android recovery utility that is nonfunctioning. Has a black background with a white trianlge with a orange exclaimation in it and a little android character below.
    My options are:
    reboot system,
    apply sdcard:update.zip,
    wipe data,
    wipe cache.
    I can use the buttons to navigate and select but when selection it just goes to the before described android dude with exclaimation mark in triangle. It shows the error message "E:can't find command file CACHE:recovery/command
    Installation aborted. no valid image in CACHE."

    Holding power doesnt do anything, nor does power + down vol + home. or any other combination. I take battery out it loads into same android system recovery utility. ADB no longer can recognize or find the device.

    At this point I dont know what to do. Im stuck in a nonfunctioning abyss. The only thing i can think of that i came across but need to read about is option 1. running and .ruu trying to communicate with it to get it back to stock, or option 2. take it to my provider and have it reset, which i dont want to do.

    I would Love if any can help me out.

    I should also mention it is rooted, I believe it was with gingerbreak. I assume that is a complete root application.

    I got ADB to work/recognize the device, but cant execute the adb shell, "-exec '/system/bin/sh' failed: No such file or directory<2> -"

    No changelog?

    Check the Optimus S forums for an unbrick guide. Maybe that will help you out.
