    This was not working for me then I followed these instructions:
    [GUIDE] How to install touchscreen fix - xda-developers

    I used the Chrome to Phone, and it worker perfect.

    I was copying and pasting into Terminal Emulator but must have had some wrong spaces or something. But when I used Chrome to Phone it went through perfectly.

    Thanks for this! This is the first time I've typed commands on a capacitive touch screen, it was a very uneasy feeling for me but I got it done. I'm used to a qwerty keyboard, or a resistive touchscreen back from the old PDA days.

    in your SD card
    nanddroid folder
    mem=471M folder <<-- in my case.. yours would be different I assume



    I should say thought first post of this thread is version 1.1
    there is version 1.2 out there use 1.2 instead.

    FOR EVERYBODY FACING PROBLEM INSTALLING
    JUST DOWNLOAD THE CUSTOM RECOVERY 1.2.1 OR ANY OF YOUR CHOICE AND THE FLASH IMAGE.
    NOW MOUNT SD CARD AND EXTRACT THE FLASH IMAGE DIRECTLY TO YOUR SD CARD AND EXTRCT THE CUSTOM RECOVERY IN UR PC AND THEN COPY THE FILE TO UR MMC.(PUT IN IN THE ROOT OF UR CARD) FOR PPL THINKING WHAT IS ROOT JUST PUT THE FILE IN UR SD CARD AND NOT INSIDE ANY FOLDER.
    NOW OPEN COMMAND AND TYPE
    -cd c:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools (by default it should be this only where the sdk is installed)
    -adb shell
    - su
    - mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock1 /system
    - cat /sdcard/flash_image > /system/bin/flash_image
    - chmod 755 /system/bin/flash_image
    - mv /system/etc/install-recovery.sh /system/etc/install-recovery.sh.bak
    -mount -o remount,ro -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock1 /system
    -flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-RA-GNM-thunderg-1.1.0.img (note just name the red marked as the same as your custom recovery name and should end with .img)
    -reboot recovery

    note: before starting the command make sure u have usb debugging enabled and dont put the (- ) sign while copying the command

    I had this custom recovery installed and worked like charm. I had also CM 7 Installed. Today i took my phone to a shop to unlock my phone and the guy flashed the firmware and now i am on froyo. i don't know i still have the custom recovery. everytime i try 3 buttons combo it reset my phone to factory settings.

    I rooted my phone but can't installed custom recovery.

    I have terminal emulator installed. when i type in

    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock1 /system this bring to to next line

    cat /sdcard/flash_image > /system/bin/flash_image but this say such directories not found

    i have both files on sd card. The both files are .zip. Do i extract the files or just copy them on sd card?

    I really need help with this


    Got it working. I kept both files zipped and extracted hoping for one of them to work. and it did.

    LG Optimus p509 is by far the hardest phone to install recovery image. I have root, follow the prompts, but get this:
    # cat /sdcard/flash_image > /system/bin/flash_image - file or directory not found

    Dude, use the info on the very first post, info/code here:
    To use copy flash_image and recovery-RA-GNM-thunderg-1.1.0.img to the root of your sdcard.

    To flash: via adb shell or terminal type this from root su # shell. (Do not type the # as its just for reference to show you need a root # shell not a $ user shell)


    Code:
    # mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock1 /system
    # cat /sdcard/flash_image > /system/bin/flash_image # chmod 755 /system/bin/flash_image
    # mv /system/etc/install-recovery.sh /system/etc/install-recovery.sh.bak
    # mount -o remount,ro -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock1 /system
    # flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-RA-GNM-thunderg-1.1.0.img
    # reboot recovery

    Before I copied the files to the root directory (I used ES file explorer from the market to do that) - I renamed original "recovery-RA-GNM-thunderg-1.1.0.img" to "rectun.img" cause it's easier to type this shorter name. So the line in question would look like this
    # flash_image recover /sdcard/rectun.img

    You WILL get error from typing this line:
    # mv /system/etc/install-recovery.sh /system/etc/install-recovery.sh.bak
    but as stated earlier - ignore it, go to the next.
    I used adb, but you can do the same in terminal, make sure you increase your font size, cause it's awfully small in default mode. when you do this correctly, it WILL work

    Hey guys, I'm very much a noob trying to get started flashing custom roms etc. I'm at the spot where I'm to download a terminal emulator and put in code.
    But after putting other stuff on my sd card, I can't go to web or marketplace via wifi and the terminal emulator I downloaded kept force closing.

    Anybody know what the deal is? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Got through last issue, but got held up over another line of coding where it said i had a read only file of one of the flash image
    Any thoughts?
    Also, I don't have a root folder on my sdcard. Is this necessary? Do I just create a new folder and name it "root"?

    Will this recovery work on the newly released LG Thrive (ATT GoPhone; Model No LG-P506)? I don't want to brick my new phone if I can avoid it. :)

    Thanks for letting us know.

    Hi guys, I did everything in a proper way with my lgp500, and started partition as swap0 ext512. but the process hasn't completed for almost half an hour. is it normal that it takes that much while partitioning a lg stock sd card? should i wait more :thinking:

    edit: well, i wasn't patient enough and took the battery off, tried again and it took 4 seconds.

    Code:
    # mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock1 /system # cat /sdcard/flash_image > /system/bin/flash_image # chmod 755 /system/bin/flash_image # mv /system/etc/install-recovery.sh /system/etc/install-recovery.sh.bak # mount -o remount,ro -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock1 /system # flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-RA-GNM-thunderg-1.1.0.img # reboot recovery
    Okay, I have a few problems... 1, I've done all the steps, when I go in to code i'm getting errors like crazy!!

    # cat /sdcard/flash_image > /system/bin/flash_image
    Error: /sdcard/flash_image: No such file or directory

    I d/loaded the flash_image and the recovery and but them both on my SD card in my phone... I kept them both in the zip file so idk what is going on.

    Also, before I started doing all of this I d/loaded titanium backup and backed up ALL the files on my phone onto my SD card. When I go into custom recovery I don't have these options...
    Backup/Restore:
    Nand Backup : runs a nandroid backup of data, cache, boot, system
    Nand Backup + .android secure : backs up above plus .android_secure on sdcard (froyo native apps on sd)
    Nand + ext backup : data, cache, system, boot, plus apps2sd on ext partition (old style apps2sd)
    Nand Restore : browse to and select nandroid backup to restore

    When I go into Backup/Restore only things that come up are backup, restore and cancel.

    I'm using a LG Optimus T Model LG-p509 Andrioid version 2.2 and Software version LG-p509-V10h

    Can someone help me please?

    The flash_image.zip must be unzipped. The flash_image is needed to actually flash the recovery. The one you are describing is the stock recovery. Also this thread/version is outdated see here for newest All In One Recovery Thread

    My borther-in-law and I had downloaded ROM MANAGER to try and root my phone for going through all of this crap. When I go in and try to flash my phone ClockWork won't come off. I try to flash in another ROM, no such luck. I've even tryied to unroot my phone w/ z4root and doing a factory reset. Is there anything I can do to get it back to "factor" and back to the Android System? There is not an actual ROM on there because ROM Manger didn't have any for my phone... I know its confusing, I've tried to figure it out myself.

    I've been doing this for 5days now trying to flash over a new ROM. This process doesn't seem to be working for anything.

    When I type in
    "# cat /sdcard/flash_image > /system/bin/flash_image"
    it comes up with
    "/sdcard/flash_image > invalid length"
    Is this normal?
