    [​IMG] DISCLAIMER: This is a CUSTOM RECOVERY! Use at YOUR OWN RISK!!! By using this, you understand that that I am not liable for any or all consequences of using this. If you don't know what you're doing, DON'T TRY IT. Use at your own risk!

    Thats right, I got bored and built TWRP for the Esteem.

    For those who are not familiar with TRWP you can read up on it here.

    Its basically a Touch based recovery alternative to CWM.

    Hope you all enjoy it! [​IMG]

    To Install


    1. Download the Installer
    2. Connect USB cable
    3. Make sure debugging is enabled
    4. Make sure LG USB drivers are installed
    5. Run the TWRP-Installer.bat (Windows) or the .sh (Linux)
    6. Phone will reboot to recovery when finished

    The Goods

    TWRP 2.3.1.1 - The theme I ported needs some work for all options to show properly in this version.

    Ported BAMF ICS/JB TWRP Theme

    How to install the theme


    1. Download the theme. ;)
    2. Create a directory on internal or external sdcard/TWRP/theme
    3. Copy ui.zip to TWRP/theme/ui.zip
    4. Reboot to recovery.
    5. Enjoy!!! :)

    does this recovery have the ability to mount internal and external storage (while on recovery mode)?

    edit: the recovery itself does, i mean the esteem version you built.

    If you have an old backup by cwm could you restore it with this recovery?

    Great work.. Well give it a go tonight.. they beat me to asking about the cwm back up being compatible.. so would this also mean that flashable .zips won't play nice either?
