    Hey guys, my ally has been annoying me for a long time because of things like lag, internal memory, etc. So in my vain attempt to wait for a dual core 4g phone to come to verizon I'm resorting to messing with my phone to keep myself preoccupied. In this particular case I'm trying to root my phone and flash velocity. I'm completely new to this so please be patient with me :)

    My ally is currently running v2.2.2 and I successfully? rooted my phone using Gingerbreak. I have superuser access so I'm going to assume I did it correctly. Afterwards I used rom manager and flashed clockwork recovery as well as flashing the alternate recovery for what I believe is Amon-Ra recovery?

    From my extremely limited understanding I'm now supposed to boot into recovery mode, wipe Menu, Data, Cache, and Dalvik Cache, reboot, flash velocity 1.0 and reboot.

    Please let me know if this is indeed correct and if everything I've done so far is correct as well.

    The problem I'm running into, assuming everything else is correct, is that I can't seem to boot into recovery mode. Whether i tap boot into recovery from ROM manager or manually by holding call, menu, and end while booting it just shows an android figure underneath an exclamation point in a triangle and then boots normally.

    If anyone could help me I'd really appreciate it since I don't want to go to verizon tomorrow, pick up a t-bolt, and then find out the bionic or gs2 came out 3 hours later >.>

    Thanks!

    make sure to wipe/factory reset and then i believe you need velocity 1.1 but for recovery you need to flash the one from rom manager

    i would not even use rom manager because clockwork mod has had issues with the recovery not sticking..its better to use the guide in this forum for root users.

    In rom manager, flash the Amon_RA_2.2.1 Recovery. Then download Velocity 1.1 from here http://androidforums.com/velocity/3...ly-android-2-2-1-froyo-super-fast-stable.html. Make sure to put on your SD card. Reboot into recovery by turning phone off, then pressing the send, menu, and end keys (holding them all down until the LG logo appears) Then wipe data, cache and dalvik-cache. Flash from zip => Velocity 1.1 from SD card. Reboot.

    That's all from memory, somebody correct me if I'm wrong

    You need to remove/rename /system/ect/install-recovery.sh in order for the recovery to stick. Once you get the ra recovery to stick. Uninstall ROM manager and use the recovery manually. Wipe data, cache,dalvik cache and the flash the ROM and reboot. And next time you come up on a question. You can probably search the forum and find the answer. i know all this has been explained more than once. Also i would definitely advise using the 2.2 root guide to get fastboot.

    Nevermind guys, I just reflashed the alternate recovery a few times and it booted straight into recovery mode. I'm the proud owner of a rooted ally running velocity 1.1 and it's SICCCCCCKKKKK.
