    This is my CWM recovery. It's final now and everything works as far as i know. Let me know if it doesn't.

    There is more than one way to install this recovery but the easiest for most users will be to download my F6Utilities2 app here. It is fairly straight forward but let me know if you have issues. It does download the latest from Oudhitsquad's Server.

    Have fun out there kids. If you need anything get at me on irc in #oudhitsquad

    [disclaimer]
    I did goof my phone up using the the fx3 kernel sources. so be careful if your starting to develop roms i suppose. dont blame me when your cat dies or something.

    im still looking into how to fix it. for right now recovery is what ive got going. working on an oc kernel, and some init tweaks to get a bigger data partition (on sdcard)

    [Thanks (in no order of importance)]

    I get my F6 today.

    Thanks pressy4pie. With the heads that have arrived on F6, we may end up with a really decent phone.

    No biggie guyz. I did start building an installer app that I'll probably poor together along with a proper root script. My app development skills are a little on the leading side though so if anyone has a knowledge of java and some free time shoot me an email or dm on Twitter

    Picked up my phone just a little while ago. Pressy, I wish I had a working knowledge of java, I would sure help.

    In my brief time using this, it performs a lot better than my Admire. As for root, I'll get to it after playing with it for a while (Saferoot seems to be the way to go).

    P4P, thanks again!

    I am actually working on a one click for an install for this, but it's being stupid granting me an interactive shell.

    This kind of works.. if you can figure out why it is failing, more power to you.

    Is the 1-21-2014 link for F6 Utilities? Do I need to root/install another recovery before flashing this? Is there any way to avoid getting /data wiped when booting into this recovery or another recovery to get to this one?

    You do need to root to run this application. once you have the phone rooted, you install this app and press "Install". This will then install Clockwork recovery. You then use this app like "2-init" for the LG motion, to access recovery without data wipe.

    No. The .Lok file is the Loki patched recovery. You need to click on the f6utility link.
