    Good. Now people won't be causing the black screen in the recovery from using the recovery in ROM Manager.

    I just hope people don't start trying to use the ClockworkMod 3.2.0.1 for C LW690

    Exactly what I'm thinking people will do -_-

    Damn. That really sucks. I've been using the CWM Touch Recovery on the G-Nex... it's so badass.

    Didn't someone make a different touch recovery for the opv? I'm so out of the loop these days.

    I am still running the CWM recovery I installed on both my Vs through ROM manager. Have thought about updating them, but haven't bothered.

    Glad it is we're out of RM finally.

    lol MacFett... my eyes are so bad that I've never been able to actually see what your avatars are. Try faceyourmanga.com (see if you can make one look just like you!).

    I have the CWM Touchscreen recovery on all three V's (My year old brick Live's!). Won't use anything else. All three are 2.2.1. The advantage to this is I was able to restore a stock ZV4 backup that I made on the spare 2.2.1 that I had purchased used last month to the unbricked (I need to be on the stock ROM to fix the zeroed out MEID and ESN ). So now I have a ZV4 baseband and the ZV9 SW version on the unbricked.

    I Had to use a S firmware to unbrick (this will change very soon), then the ZV9 update to return to VM stock. Then I just flashed the Touch screen recovery, swapped uSD cards and restored the nandroid from the spare.

    Thanks for the ZV9 update Guide Petrah, had to use EManUL3XX's root.zip though (the gordita root's download page is no longer any good).

    The CWM Touchscreen recovery is in the All Things Root Guide sticky.

    There is a CWMT and COTR both of those are touchscreen recovery's.

    The COTR still has some bugs plus you can not restore a nandroid made from any other recovery, or I would be all over it (installed it and it wouldn't even let me install a BobZohme and MiRaGe kernel). I know for sure Petrah would not like it in it's current state.

    I thought it was pretty cool though, a CWM recovery with a touch screen, the fix recovery loop option, and UI color changer option.

    When all the bugs get worked out I might give it another try.

    You have to disable signature verification to install roms, its in COT options somewhere, if you're on v2.0

    I know. I installed a ROM no problem with it, but when I tried to install a kernel with it I got the error. Tried both that I mentioned.
    Like I said it still has bugs, I shouldn't even have to toggle signature verification to install a ROM.
    Then there is the matter with it having to backup your ROM before you install anything, everytime, unless you disable it (but you have to know how to do that, instead of having it disabled by default and having to enable if you want the option).
    Then there is the fact it won't restore any nandroid made from any other recovery, so you have to redo all your backups by installing the backup in a good recovery, installing the COT and then making a backup in the COT recovery. You have to do this for every backup you have.

    Way too much to deal with for me, Thank You Much!

    My current Avatar is Alice Cooper during Black Widow. I took my 12 year old daughter to see Cooper/Iron Maiden at the end of June for my father's day present and this was one of the pictures I took.

    I'll give faceyourmanga a try. (And I love your new avatar without the stubble)

    @Andy, you should update your thread, The Truth About Rom Manager saying to not flash a recovery at all because there currently is none on it for the OV. If people still want to use ROM Manager they can press Menu key>Manual Flash......if it asks what recovery WAS flashed they can choose Optimus C and use ROM Manager like normal, as long as they flashed BobZhome's CWM or CWM-Green.

    Lucky kid! Geeze, adopt me!

    FaceYourManga is kinda cute. I made mine and then another one for Papajin (that looks surprisingly just like him), and then added them to our contacts. I like the "awe" factor when I look at our text conversations with our little avs showing up there lol.

    As for my previous av... I so love Keith Urban! Papajin won't let me put a poster of Keith Urban on the ceiling above our bed. Dunno why. /hrmph :mad:

    It's already stated in the guide that it works fine with any CWMode recovery or it's variants. You just can't use it for the sole purpose of having it install ClockworkMode 3.2.0.1 (Yeah!) I don't think the manual flash override even works with our phone. Not positive, as I didn't want to risk bricking my phone by verifying. It sometimes can cause problems just using it to boot into the recovery.

    I honestly think rom manager just had issues with the OpV (or the other way around). When I flashed pure CM9 to the G-Nex the CM team packed rom manager with it. I noticed the same thing when I flashed MIUI... the U.S. MIUI team packaged it with the rom. I honestly do not see why anyone would package their rom with that app.

    I had used rom manager to upgrade CWM Recovery, and it borked it all to hell. The text in recovery was so small that you needed a magnifying glass to see it (not exaggerating). I had to use that Flash GUI app to redo it, then the text size was somewhat better (still a tad bit small for me, but it's readable at least). You would think that with a G-Nex you wouldn't need to squint to see the recovery text. Seems I could see it just fine on the OpV!
