    Alright, well, I'm considering installing a custom rom on my LG Shine plus, since they both have an Aloha mobo, and similar specs

    I know it isn't safe, but I'm extremely curious to find out if it will work

    Make sure you back up your rom via recovery!

    You used the wrong thread. Booting stock recovery does a data wipe on your phone. Sorry I was at the park with kids that day and couldn't help much.

    Directions to give me what i need are.

    You need a rooted phone 1st.

    You can either use adb or terminal enumlator app from market.

    from adb shell or terminal on phone
    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2.  
    3. su
    4.  
    5. cat proc/mtd
    6.  
    verifiy that mtd2 is named recovery.

    assuming that recovery is mtd2 on shine plus as it is on ally:

    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. dd if=/dev/mtd/mtd2 of=/sdcard/recovery-dump-shine.img bs=4096
    3.  
    4.  
    if its mtd1 or mtd3 then change the dev/mtd/mtd2 part above to the correct partition

    you will now see a file called recovery-dump-shine.img on your sdcard.

    Please upload that for me as thats all I need and if followed exactly will do nothing but dump a copy of your stock recovery to sdcard and nothing else. Sfter you upload the dump for me I'll build the shine plus a recovery to allow it to have custom roms. If you want a velocity port you will need a custom recovery first to be able to flash it.

    Hi guys,

    I'm dsixda from xda-developers. I just got an LG Shine Plus as a secondary phone for my vacation.

    Here's the recovery.img and boot.img for getitnowmarketing to try:
    shine_recovery_boot.zip

    Looking forward to a custom recovery image :)
