echo ------------------------------------[/HIGH] I figured it was time to re-write the desc. Ok, here's the deal. This utility can accomplish many things for you, it can root, install a custom recovery, a stock recovery, or change the boot mode of your phone. It also does so with little-to-no interaction, which is why I made it, so that noobs could have their phone rooted and have
a recovery. Also, so that when I revert to stock, I can be lazy and have this do it for me. Anyways, I was digressing. All of the source is posted on the website, along with links too the builds. You can find that all in the third post. So, to sum this post up, it can do root, custom recovery, stock recovery, adb shell, boot modes, and lastly ADB Terminal (Prompt) Thanks for using this.

Downloads:
[BUILD V10.0:] https://sourceforge.net/projects/lgvortexutility/
[DATE:](25/07/2013)

Changelog:

​* * * [V10 1:42PM 25/07/2013] Fixed Updater, switched to XML-based updater by me. Uhhh, fixed bug-logger. Updated CL. Other fixes.

[V6.5 12:31 11/14/2012] Small Bug Fixes, added in MD5CHECK compenents. Fixed a bit of issues with adb network and with the img dl. Added in ROMS menu, that includes forums links, etc.

[V6.0 13:22 10/14/2012] ALOT of Bug fixes, added stock recovery, it no longer includes 'stockrecovery.img' instead 'wget's it from my dropbox. Also, I shortened, and explained more of the code in the .bat. Yeah, that's really all....

[V5.5- 19:17 *10/5/2012] Fixed all-in-one package. (Root + Recovery). Improved startup screen, improved Setup code. Improved Root and Recovery interface to make it look less 'Clumped'.

[V4.5- 20:16 10/1/2012] Been coding for 5 hours straight... What i achieved was a fixed root, and the recovery actually installs! Oh goody! I can verify these work, and also I added the LG adb driver as part of "setup".

[V4.0- 12:23 10/1/2012] RECOVERY WORKS! I finally got myself a USB cord and it worked! In other news, I fixed some bugs, and some leftover "Cd %userprofile%/adb " references which had most likely cause root not to work for people who had used 3.0.

[V3.5- 12:02 9/24/2012] Root was tidyed up, added boot modes. Recovery code is nearing final (It's
'rem'ed so go into the bat and unrem it to use it.) Also, Simplified main code. (StandAlone)

[V3.0- 14:13 9/20/2012] Root Works for sure. Recovery is BETA, and that's all there is too it.

[13:10 9/20/2012] Root works, I unrooted with Superuser temp unroot, and then used RATC exploit, now is telling me its rooted . Recovery, is making HUGE progress, expect a beta of this to be released today.

[01:27 9/20/2012] Recovery installs; requires a little User Interaction. (Pushs file twice, then flashes it) Root is working, with RATC, but untill i get an unrooted stock, I can't test too see if it roots.





----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

RELEASED AS OF OCTOBER 23, 2012

I apologize, I just now realised there is a MAJOR bug in my code making root not work. It is still able to do recovery, but without root I think of this as worthless, I will try to fix root, but if I can't I will make this Recovery installer Only, with a few added in extras. Once again, I apologize.

Forgot all that, fix has been found. Also, recovery has been fixed.

Turns out RATC won't work by it self on the device, it requires a bypass to mouting system. So, bypass get, Psneuter is now intergreated with RATC.

---------------------
EDIT: No, it doesn't -.- I just need to actually correctly use RATC.

Updates may be a bit slower now that I have basically got it working.... Although, I may add an option to download ROMs via this, and have it push them to /sdcard/roms so, enjoy root!

Build 7.5 contains a Updater UI! It'll inform you whenever there is a new update! It also will allow you too download it! This is a major breakthrough for my scripts, as I've been working on this for a LONG time.

Anyways, enjoy the new update that addresses many issues too.

Well, since this thing is pretty stable. I'm Announcing Development STOPATION for this. I will still support it, and periodically release updates how I see fit, but I will not b e ACTIVELY developing it. Thanks for using this guys, and I hope you enjoyed it.

Also, I've moved my attention to PHP, HTML, and CSS.

Alright, I'll debug this issue and see what I can do to fix it or if it's a (potential) issue with your cell phone.
