    Need a dump to build a recovery.

    It should be able to be rooted with universal androot or else use the rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin method.

    Once rooted from adb shell or terminal app type:

    Code (Text):
    2. su
    3. cat proc/mtd
    note the mtd partition # of boot & recovery.
    then in the dd parts use the mtd number of your boot and recovery partitons
    for example if boot is mtd3 do dd if=/dev/mtd/mtd3 of=/sdcard/boot-dump.img bs=4096

    then type

    Code (Text):
    2. dd if=/dev/mtd/mtd1 of=/sdcard/boot-dump.img bs=4096
    4. dd if=/dev/mtd/mtd0 of=/sdcard/recovery-dump.img bs=4096
    Please upload the boot-dump.img and recovery-dump.img from your sdcard.

    Drellisdee, I just got an LG P500 Optimus One. I can't right now, but I'll try to get you my .img files asap (might be a couple days, real busy right now)

    Can someone comfirm that is this basically same phone as the optimus one p500 released outside of US? If so I have a recovery for it.
  4. I applied the recovery from the p500, it almost works. Starts with the message "E:Bad boot message :"", the button layout is correct, wiping the data works, backup fails, applying a signed.zip works. I'll upload the original recovery & boot soon.
