    OK, I've been searching everywhere on the internet on how to fix this.. either nothing works or i don't understand it :thinking: I'm a noob. My phone (LG Optimus V VM670) is stuck in a cwm recovery v5.0.2.7 loop and i don't have the slightest clue how to fix it. Any help is very much appreciated. But since I'm a noob, I'm gonna need step-by-step instructions :( When I turn it on, it loads the lg sign then goes straight to the recovery. Then i have to click the home button and the back button simultaneously until it say "back menu button enabled" appears then i can work with it. Please anybody help as much as they can!

    When the back menu is enabled, this is what the buttons do:

    Menu: Nothing
    Home: Nothing
    Back: Up
    Search: Down
    Power Button: Select
    Vol + : Nothing
    Vol - : Up
    Voice: Up
    Camera Button: Returns to cwm menu​

    Restore backup or flash a new rom

    In cwm wipe data fac reset

    If restoring backup, you need to :
    Wipe data / factory reset, wipe cache partition
    under advanced sub menu, wipe dalvik cache.
    then under mounts and storage sub menu,
    format all partitions except SD card.
    restore backup and reboot.

    Ok, so i went to the "Optimus V Phone Stuck" thread and it had another thread called " do not factory reset your rooted phone" so i went to it and that said to put Xionia_cwma_recover.zip_v1.2518.6 onto my sd card and go to install update from sd. i did and this is what my phone did:

    -- installing: /sdcard/xiona_cwma_12518.6.zip
    Finding update package...
    Opening Update package...
    Installing update...
    installation aborted

    -.- ...WHY does it "abort Installation"?? :( I tried clearing everything it would give me the option to (except format sdcard) but nothing worked.. maybe im doing this wrong?? Idk, its so frustrating.
    I am able to make new backups with this thing, is it possible that somebody could make a backup that could fix this?

    If you flash the ZenGarden recovery zip, do not reboot the recovery. The install is only temporary, so rebooting well cause you to boot back into your current recovery.

    When you flash a zipped recovery it will not appear until you reboot the Clockworkmod recovery.
    I've had to do this to fix my recovery loop, a while back. If you don't reboot you will still be in the clockworkmod recovery which has no "fix recovery loop" option.
    This advice is coming from actual experience.

    The zip i built runs the killrecovery.sh script and is only a fakeflash, not a fullflash it runs on top of the current recoveries kernel.

    download a ROM and flesh the ZenGarden zip again, then flash the ROM and see if it boots after installing ROM.

    Which is why it booted back into the CWMod recovery.

    Try the Xionia recovery in it's zip form found here: http://forums.androidcentral.com/showthread.php?p=1200365
    This is what I used.
    Go to bottom of first post. This is a full flash, which is what is needed to get out of a recovery loop.
    Sorry, I assumed the ZenGarden was a full flash, instead of a fake flash.

    You may have to try the fastboot method flash the LG stock recovery and flash the VM670ZV9 update, cause what it sounds like is the recovery you had on there wrote a RESET Command to the bootloader.

    Silly question. How did it get stuck in CWMod recovery in the first place.
    Did you try to use the factory reset option in the phones settings menu?
    If yes, we might have to try and use the Android SDK and shell commands from a command line interface to install the Xionia recovery after wiping the recovery partition with same command line interface (command prompt) on computer.

    Either my suggestion or Earthnfires suggestion should work, but you need the Android SDK installed on your computer. Go here: http://www.support-4-you.com/main/i...d-adb-installation&catid=40:how-tos&Itemid=57
    Click on the last link in the tutorial for directions on how to set the path to the adb.exe if you don't get the proper output from "adb devices".
    For more info on " erase all" command and install of Xionia from command propmt just ask.

    Ok well this all happened a while ago and im just now trying to fix it but im 90% sure that i recall shutting down my phone, hard rebooting and then i think that i formated everything from cwm menus and thats how i got here.
    But now for my current progress, i installed it and i have no idea about what to type or anything so i need instructions.

    Did you go into the environmental variable's and check to see if the path to the adb.exe was set.
    It should read:
    ;C:/SDK/platform-tools
    The ; separate's one path from another and is important.
