    PhilZ Recovery
    This recovery is for the LG L70. It has been tested and works 100%.

    DISCLAIMER: I am not responsible for anything that can happen to your device when using this. Your phone = Your responsibility. Your bootloader must be unlocked to use this.

    The Goods


    Installation

    FASTBOOT USERS:

    Download the recovery.img to your computer and open up terminal or command prompt and cd to the directory where the recovery.img is.

    Example:
    Windows
    Code (Text):
    1. cd Downloads
    Linux
    Code (Text):
    1. cd ~/Downloads
    Now that you are in the recovery.img's directory, boot into fastboot mode by powering off the device, from power off, plug in your usb, power on the device, as soon as it starts to boot, release the power button and hold volume up until in fastboot mode.

    Now in terminal or command prompt, type:
    Code (Text):
    1. fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
    Reboot
    Code (Text):
    1. fastboot reboot
    Once booted, go download this awesome app to make rebooting to recovery easy, HERE

    FOR THOSE WITH A RESTORED LAF PARTITION:

    Place the recovery.img in the root of your internal sd card.

    Open up command prompt or terminal and type:
    Code (Text):
    1. adb shell
    Code (Text):
    1. su
    Now it is time to overwrite your stock recovery with cwm, type:
    Code (Text):
    1. dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/recovery
    That's it, download this awesome app to reboot to recovery HERE


    To boot to recovery power off device, power on the device, and wait until it gets to the dim LG logo and try to interrupt the long vibration by pressing volume down a few times, if done correctly, your phone will stop the first boot and start another one that boots you to recovery. Timing is key so it might take a few tries

    MS323 USERS ONLY:

    Normally, key combo will not work, however, if you replace your laf partition, you can use fastboot key combos to access the recovery.
    Code (Text):
    1. dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/laf
    It is suggested that you do a backup of your laf.img before you do so, however - if you can not - I have backed it up for you HERE.

    In this case (overwriting the laf), you will need to have your USB plugged in before trying to use a key combo.


    Aroma File Manager And Terminal
    Aroma File Manager And Terminal is a lifesaver, allowing you to use a file manager and terminal right from recovery. It's even theme-able! Here are some screens:
    AROMA-File-Manager-Android-Holo.jpg 01.png

    In order to install Aroma, you just have to flash this file:
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=2231581&d=1378202418
    That's it!

    As per the norm, credit does not go to me but rather

    Just thought I'd share, was never given it's own thread. I also totally copied + pasted Chevan's OG CWM thread. (If anyone else worked on this, let me know)

    I am so sorry @MikeHoncho. It's not that you didn't help or anything, just hard to juggle all the users on top of all the info on the threads. Fixed and proper credit has been given to you (here and on my other thread). :) Hope no harsh feelings. Thanks for your work!

    More friendly to touch, customizable looks, file manager from recovery, save backup as flashable zip, so so so so so many more features. :)

    You could have just ran the commands listed for people that already had CWM. Lol. It's all good though.

    I am not sure. I apologize, I did not make these, as I have said. However I do know that these do not work with the D321. Sorry mate
