    [CWM]ClockworkMod Recovery for the LG Optimus C

    Okay OC owners, I have a working build of ClockworkMod Recovery. I have submitted it to Koush for official build and merged into ROM Manager.


    An app called Flash Image GUI can be use to install or in terminal.


    Link: recovery.img to install in terminal:

    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2.  su
    3.  
    4.  mount -o remount, rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock5 /system
    5.  
    6.  cat /sdcard/flash_image > /system/bin/flash_image
    7.  
    8.  chmod 755 /system/bin/flash_image
    9.  
    10.  flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery.img
    11.  
    Thanks to sillputtyddd for the cmd syntax!!!





    USE AT OWN RISK!! I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE WHAT YOU DO TO YOUR PHONE!!

    I manage.
    Cincinnati, Ohio - unfortunately.
    So, I returned my phone to stock, rooted, and flashed this with Flash Image GUI.

    It boots into recovery fine, but there's this text at the bottom and:

    CWM-based Recovery v4.0.1.4
    E:Bad boot message
    "recovery "

    I can install the Cyanogen build fine (runs great on reboot), and I flashed the google apps zip - says it is installed as well but on reboot they aren't showing up on the phone.

    Any ideas? Thanks for the work.

    Yea I been informed of that error. After some searching it appears to not harm anything.

    Not heard of that issue from anyone else, but will keep my hears/eyes open for it.

    I will have a OC to work with this week some time so I will be able to test thing in a more efficient manner then.

    The backups this recovery makes doesn't seem to restore data correctly. Any backup made before the update restores the data. So it's a backup problem not a restore problem I'd assume

    Or maybe not. I switch back to the old pre usb fix recovery and the only thing it says is backed up is the boot.img

    But if I check the file it's all there. Kind of weird

    Got it installed. Backed up my system (Backup complete!).

    I just wanted to thank you for this. Thought I bricked my phone. Luckily, I did the back-up. YES! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. Recovery worked. Had to tweak some settings once up. But the phone is not a brick!

    Do believe ya bricked it. You will have to restore it. I think I have a how to on the wiki, if not I know there is one n will try and find it n post it.

    If anyone else knows a way to fix plz post up as well ;)

    AND, safest way to install CWM now is from ROM Manager ;)
