    youll need this Flash_image

    Code (Text):
    adb push flash_image /data/local/tmp/flash_image
    adb push CWM-Recovery.img /data/local/tmp/recovery.img
    adb shell chmod 755 /data/local/tmp/flash_image

    First, you have to know where you've put flash_image...is it in ./data/local/tmp/flash_image or is it in /data/local/tmp/flash_image (those would be the same if you're currently in / but different if you're not). Then you need to chmod 0777 /data/local/tmp/flash_image (or chmod 0777 ./data/local/tmp/flash_image if that's where it is).

    Well now I'm jealous. You guys got root like 2 days ago and you already have a recovery. Us poor OE users have had root for months now and still have no custom recovery.

    Did you come across any issues with the phone acting like it didn't want to boot the recovery? These two phones seem relatively similar in how they are configured. Maybe you learned something in your experience that we can use.

    alll we need is a custom rom and kernal anyone no how to build any??

    diff OEM's the optimus elite has secureboot thus preventing cwm from being flashed. i havent forgotten about you guys either as slutyman can attest to :p

    from a quick glance around there is no kernel source, ergo no custom kernels
  9. slutyman

    slutyman Well-Known Member

    so cane we build a rom or is that a no?
  10. Shabbypenguin

    Shabbypenguin Well-Known Member Developer

    yea doing a rom is easy and you dont need kernel source for that :)
  11. slutyman

    slutyman Well-Known Member

    would it be possable to port a rom from the optimus v? like harmonia or gingersnap?
  12. Shabbypenguin

    Shabbypenguin Well-Known Member Developer

    no you need to make roms for this device
  13. slutyman

    slutyman Well-Known Member

    okay thanks for every thing man we can not thank you enough this phone would be dead without root and cwm all we need is a rom

    Anyone know the keypresses for recovery with the power off?

    Kernel source would be quite nice!

    So, noob question here...when I run ROM Manager and try to do anything it says:
    [​IMG]

    I imagine I don't want to just choose "Install" and let it install one that won't work. What do I do?

    wont the built in recovery work? i mean, just to clarify, what is the purpose of installing a custom recovery? would this just be for if i delete something i shouldn't? so, i wouldn't do this if it is still working as wanted?

    slutyman Well-Known Member

    bob may have found the kernal sorce code
  21. divinebovine

    divinebovine Well-Known Member Contributor

    Well, yeah, I clicked cancel obviously, but then I can't use ROM Manager...I was hoping there's some way I could make ROM Manager notice that I've installed a CWM recovery image.

    Custom recoveries allow you to flash custom roms. With the stock recovery you can only wipe the data from the phone!

    Let's hope we got kernel source!!
  23. slutyman

    slutyman Well-Known Member

    so does anyone have system.img?
  24. Shabbypenguin

    Shabbypenguin Well-Known Member Developer

    rom manager support is coming, but it will be rather pointless IMO since you cant download any roms from it.
  25. divinebovine

    divinebovine Well-Known Member Contributor

    I see. I'm not experienced with ROM Manager but I thought it promises a variety of functions, not just downloading and installing ROMs, and I was hoping to use some of the other functions.
