9) Advanced Backup
10) Delete old backups!
11) Persistent settings
12) User-defined backups!
Why the name Cannibal Open Touch?
Because we can. The name also embodies everything that Cannibal Open Touch is. It is no longer
just a variant of ClockworkMod Recovery, it is it's own recovery by itself. Combining features from
ClockworkMod 5, Team UtterChaos' Sony Xperia recovery, AmonRa 3.0.6, Xionia CWMA and a
bunch of our own special enhancements it is truly revolutionary.
What to do when an error occurs:
DO NOT simply say "xxxx doesn't work" as that is very very unhelpful and will probably be ignored. Instead, post the recovery log! To grab a log when an error occurs, simply open a terminal (or command prompt if on Windows), "cd" to an easily accessible directory and execute:Code:
adb pull /tmp/recovery.log
1) Make sure USB Debugging is ON and that you have ADB access
2) Download the Cannibal Open Touch image
3) Place the recovery image on your SD Card.
4) Fire up an ADB shell
5) Make sure you are in a root shell. If you are not, execute the "su" command now.
6) Execute "flash_image recovery /path/to/recovery.img" (replace /path/to/recovery.img with the ACTUAL path to the recovery image)
6a) If you get a "command not found" error with the above command, STOP! (), extract flash_image from the ZIP that you just downloaded (and copy it to the top level of your sd card, and follow the first three commands in the Xionia Recovery instructions. Once you have flash_image installed, do step 6 again.
7) Reboot to recovery mode
Already have a custom recovery?
1) Download the ZIP installer from the downloads below
2) Reboot to recovery
3) Flash the ZIP installer as you would a ROM or Kernel (that is, flash it from recovery)

This is a great step forward for the Optimus M. Thank you. Have you given any thought to the Optumus M+ (LG MS695)? I still have my two OM's but my children are using them now for their alarm clocks/MP3 players, etc. My wife and I have now purchased, and are using, the OM+ for our daily phones and I'd love to have a touch recovery. We do have CWM-based Recovery 188.8.131.52 for the OM+.

Re: [RECOVERY] Cannibal Open Touch v2.0.1 (latest update: 08/08/2
Well apparently there's another bug.... seems we fixed user assigned backup paths and broke the others, incidentally I know why but I'm still wondering how neither of us noticed again...
As a work around you will want to assign your backup paths for now by creating a file .userdefinedbackups and pointing it to wherever you want (default would be "sdcard/cotrecovery/backup" without the quotes)
