That file (install-recovery.sh) only exists after an OTA update.
In the "Flash zip from SDCard" menu, I can't seem to scroll the directory listing. I can move the selection bar up and down the list of presented directories, but I can't see directories past what is displayed initially. Am I doing something wrong, or is this a bug?
Hello everyone, I just bought the Optimus V from Virgin Mobile and love it. The problem I'm having is that when I went into the system recovery mode (Home-Vol Down-Power) it only gives me 4 options, reboot system now, apply sdcardupdate.zip, wipe data/factory reset and wipe cache partition. I dont have any option to back up to SD. Any ideas or options I've missed?
Please No hot-linking the downloads or crossposting to these files. I have gotten less than $50 for making recoveries for the entire optimus lineup. That includes Vortex, Opt S, Opt M, Opt P500, Opt P509, Opt V. Please instead link to this thread for your users. Many people had indicated a wish to donate but didn't know how due to the hotlinking of uploads and no credit given.
Lets start the custom roms!!
To use copy flash_image and recovery-thunderc-v-1.2.0-GNM.img.zip (both unzipped) to the root of your sdcard.
To flash: via adb shell or terminal type this from root # shell
Key combo to boot custom recovery from powered off is vol_down + home + power and release keys at LG splash.Code:
# mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock5 /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/mtdblock5 /system # flash_image [B][COLOR=black]recovery[/COLOR][/B] /sdcard/ recovery-thunderc-v-1.2.0-GNM.img # reboot recovery
ADB as root user
USB-MS Toggle :mounts sdcard as mass storage
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
Flash Zip From Sdcard: Update.zip must be in root of sdcard or can browse directories. I recommend making a dir named custom_roms and placing stuff there.
Wipe data/factory reset: wipes data & cache
Wipe Dalvik cache : Wipes Dalvik cache in all possible locations if moved by apps2sd
Wipe SD:ext : Wipes Apps2sd ext partition
Wipe Battery Stats
Wipe rotate settings
Wipe .android secure : Wipes froyo native .android_secure on sdcard
Partition SD: Partition's sdcard for apps2sd (this formats card so all non backed-up data is lost)
SD:ext2 to ext3 : coverts apps2sd ext2 partition to ext3 (requires kernel support for ext3)
SD:ext3 to ext4 : same as above but ext3 to ext4 (requires kernel support for ext4)
Gui mounts to avoid typing in terminal to mount and cd into a dir to mount system, data, cache, sd-ext (if exists), sdcard
Fix apk uid mismatches
Move recovery log to SD
Toggle Signature Verify : Turn of signature checking on flashing zips
Key Test : Output keycodes for debugging recovery
Recovery Key mapping:
Up & down : vol-up and vol-down
Select : Menu
Backup : Back

I've rooted my phone. Super User says its all fine, no errors. So know I'm trying to get this new ROM to overclock but every time I try to follow these instructions it either says flash_image is a read only file when I try to use the terminal emulator or if I use cmd prompt it says permission denied....
cat /sdcard/flash_image > /system/bin/flash_image I can't get past that. I have both files in the root directory of my sd card. I don't know where to go from here??? If you could give me any suggestions I would really appreciate it
Can u update the instructions and tell us how to do it starting ALL THE WAY from plugging the phone into your computer, I'm a noob and this is very confusing the CMD doesn''t find anything you tell me to type in!
