    I do not take any responsibility if this bricks/damages/erases your phone and any of its contents. Use at your own risk!



    Previous Versions:

    superuser/root is required!
    1) Download the first two files to the root directory of your sdcard.
    2) Open up a command prompt and type the following:

    Code (Text):
    2. adb shell
    3. su
    4. cp /sdcard/flash_image /data/local/flash_image
    5. chmod 0755 /data/local/flash_image
    6. /data/local/flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-cwm-shineplus-
    7. sync
    8. exit
    9. exit
    10. adb reboot recovery
    3) Your phone should now boot into CWM-recovery.
    4) Vol+/Vol- to navigate menu, Call button for OK, End-call for back/cancel

    Known Issues:
    - None so far (requires testing).

    - Resynced to latest CM10.1 sources; updated CWM to

    Initial release.
    - 'Mount USB Storage' now working.
    - Backlight brightness now set to maximum value on start (63).

    Thanks to:
    - jiilik for providing his CM7 source files that I used in the process of porting
    - karendar for testing and support, and providing a solution to backlight brightness problem
    - CyanogenMod and ClockworkMod team for their open-source projects

    Looks awesome. Will flash once I get this thing rooted...

    EDIT: flashed the recovery without any issues. Will update once I've flashed Karendar's custom ROM.
    EDIT: Everything seems to have worked perfectly - Flashed V20B_R2_Custom_Stock.zip without any errors/problems. Kept all my previous apps and settings to boot.

    Thanks for the feedback!

    I'm going to keep trying to get TWRP working as well, and.will probably start work on my Extended Power menu with screenshot support.

    You know why this recovery rocks? Because it mounts sd-ext properly. Which means if you use app2sd you can backup your app partition! Just for that, it's worth its weight in GOLD! Thanks jparasite, great port! And glad you got the brightness figured out. ;) Reason I gave you 255 is because I was using it on my Galaxy S2... Which seems to have a larger range of brightness levels. :| hehe.

    Tested USB mounting, SD-ext, backup... Haven't restored. And on top of that, it actually detects adb which Amon-RA does not. Only thing missing from this recovery is the touchscreen support which was built into a few recoveries. ;) haha

    **EDIT** BTW, just E-Mailed LG to see when they'll release v20B source... Waiting for an answer. Last time I mailed them, it was uploaded 48 hours later. ;)

    Just got a reply from LG, they should have source uploaded within a week or two. ;)

    Awesome. As soon as it's up I'll attempt to compile LOL, hopefully it won't blow up this time.

    Yeah, LG fudged up the download. I harrassed them again to fix it. ;) Had to send them a screenshot showing the 404 error before they actually knew what I was talking about! haha.

    It downloads now.

    I must be missing something. :confused:

    I'm in root, have the # sign and the two files are in the root director of my SD Card. I open ConnectBot, the terminal I have on my phone and type "adb shell" and all I get is permission denied. I've tried with debugging on and off as well as with usb plug in and not. I always get the same error. If I enter SU first, then I get "adb: not found".

    I've googled adb and know that it's related to debugging but have not come across any light bulb moments.

    Any suggestions?

    I'm running 2.3.3 with V20b

    Ok I now figured out that it a Terminal on my Computer and not the phone and that the usb drivers were corrupted. So now I have the ADB Shell working but "cp: not found" is the next hurdle. I love this stuff.:D

    I found the solution. For some reason Busybox wasn't working. I found the solution here:
    cp not found on Root Droid

    My phone is backing up as I type.

    Bump, as I've updated CWM to the latest version available. Hopefully there are no bugs with this release.

    Thanks. I finally got around to installing it. Never really dealth with ADB stuff before, so I learned a little something :).
    It didn't backup the SD-EXT partition for me, though, but that's minor.

    FYI, "Reboot Menu" by Rice Knight (at Android Market/Play) works for rebooting into recovery.
