    I could be missing something since I'm attempting to read this with my Droid, but is there a download link for the recovery.img itself?

    By the way, awesome job! Glad you finally got it going! :)

    Do you have any idea if this will fix the 50% bug? If I got it right this is technically an image from your phone, so if you dont have the bug and I push this to my phone it will replace the OS and no bug?

    No its a custom recovery that will make rooting very easy and allow you to nandroid backup and allow installing custom roms ie updates.zip. This doesn't touch the OS unless you install a custom rom.

    Well if someone wants to build froyo from AOSP we now have the means to test it and flash it.

    We could technically make a Froyo port from another device. I'm going to chat with Peter Alfonso to see if he feels like it..

    Well it would be great to beat LG at their own job lol. I think LG is gonna take their time releasing Froyo, we'll be lucky if we get it before the year is over

    ****Edit****

    To permanantly flash it copy recovery-RA_GNM_1.13.img to root of sdcard. Once booted into my temp recovery (fastboot boot recovery-RA_GNM_1.13.img) use command adb shell
    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. mount /sdcard
    next
    Code (Text):
    1.  flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-RA_GNM_1.13.img

    I may be wrong, but isn't SEND+MENU+PWR on boot for recovery?

    I'll be damned that worked when custom recovery was flashed. Didn't work on stock. Updating instructions and thats awesome because now a bad boot.img will not brick phone as you can boot recovery with those keys.

    Would it be possible to then use something like the quick boot app to force restart to recovery from SW?

    ED: Well if SEND+MENU+PWR works after it has been flashed then I guess there is no point

    I haven't had a chance to test it yet as I haven't flashed the recovery image. If someone could test this that would be great, because ATM there is no way to recover from a bad flash. If we can verify that flashing the recovery image and using send+menu+pwr keypress at boot it will be much "safer" to go forward

    lol, first you have to flash the recovery image too your sdcard. after doing that you can access the recovery menu by holding Send+Menu+Power.

    if your wondering how to flash to your sdcard, the instructions are a couple posts up from drellisdee.

    i can verify that it works, i tested it 5 times just too be sure :)

    now all we need is someone to release a 2.2 image and they will be worshipped by the ally community :p

    Close its not flashed to your sd card but to the nand flash on your device. The img is copied to your sdcard per my instructions and is flashed to nand using the flash_image.
