    This is the 2nd init mod for the LG Motion.

    what it does== installs 2nd init recovery script at boot and with the sm widget just add the reboot recovery sh and boot into cwm with a widget. (once set up)

    how it does it== this is a modified version of wallpaper bin in /sbin. The script verifies morning call (so no errors) it then runs the 2nd init recovery tar while booting. Once the widget is installed you will be able to reboot to cwm recovery without the use of the 2nd init app.

    Directions==download 2nd init mod zip file and place on external sd.
    Reboot to cwm recovery via the app (last time u need to do that)
    Once in recovery press home to mount external.
    Install zip from card and install 2nd_init_mod.zip
    Using root explorer navigate to /system/xbin/2nd_init_mod
    Move wallpaper to /sbin and paste over original.
    Open script manager and browse as root.Then navigate to 2nd_init_mod folder and press on reboot_recovery.sh
    Press "su" and "save" and then exit.
    Go to home screen and add sm widget
    add reboot_recovery.sh widget and reboot normal.

    Profit! you have managed to do it!! You can now boot into cwm recovery at any time by widget.


    Credits go to 985hPaKicK for his 2nd init app. Special thanks to Hroark13 for the inspiration. :) and Shabby for the nifty link. Thanks.

    Let me start by thanking all the people who have helped with the Motion . We appreciate your help, whether you create something new or point us toward something someone else has created but that we would benefit from. That being said, has anyone used this script and had success with it? Anyone give this a go yet at all?

    What does not work with this? Does phone and bluetooth work?

    if done properly phone is fully functional. @jerry please reread and understand what its for and how to install properly. CWM is not for the faint of heart and the devs are not responsible if you make error or misunderstand.

    What app do you use for the "Reboot to cwm recovery via the app (last time u need to do that)" part.

    I use ROManager and it factory reset mine -__-

    The reason for this is that ROManager/all those other apps reboot into the recovery partition. This would be fine, except with our phone, all that is on there is the factory reset. Our CWM does not replace/modify the recovery partition.
