    ok, let's try this.... toggle sig verify to off, flash update.zip, reboot back into recovery, toggle sig verify off again and flash update.zip one more time
    the problem with this is that every time i flash update.zip i end up stuck on the lg screen and have to run the emergency recovery again.

    You need to flash a new recovery image somehow...But i'm not sure how to do this without a rooted ROM booted up, as you need to enter a superuser adb shell session, and there's no other way to do this without being booted into the rooted OS...

    I'm curious, what ROM were you originally trying to use? And why such a strange/outdated recovery?

    i found that i might be rooted after all. when i use the adb shell command, i do get a # which i believe means i'm rooted but i can't get any commands to work so maybe not. i just don't know...

    i didn't know it was a strange outdated recovery. it looked fine to me. i was fine with everything i had done until i tried to text him and we realized his texts weren't coming in. when i started digging, i found a bunch of posts and followed bad directions i guess trying to unroot.

    the "#" just means that you're in the adb shell program. You have to have an OS in order to be rooted, since the Superuser app is what actually allows you to modify the system partition.

    there's no way to flash the recovery instead of pushing it? the evo has a bootloader that will allow you to install the recovery.img is there any other way to install it? i found "flashable" img files for the optimus v but nothing for the optimus s of course.

    I don't believe amon-ra recovery can flash the modem in the ZVD update.zip. It might even cause issues with booting if you try. Xionia recovery has special handling of modem flashing so it ignores it and won't cause issues. That is why you can flash the update.zip twice and have it work.

    OK, well # means root, and you need root, and adb can flash a new recovery from inside of recovery. First things first, find and download a copy of xionia_cwma_12518.6.img or CWMTRecovery_5.0.2.7-th6_thunderc.img onto the root of your sd-card. You can either push the file via adb:

    Code:
    adb push <local file> /sdcard
    don't type in the < >, and you'll find it much easier if you rename the recovery to recovery.img and move it onto the root of your c drive. Then <local file> would just be c:\recovery.img

    or, if available, mount via USB storage from your recovery.

    Once you have the recovery.img copied over:

    Then you need to flash the recovery

    Code:
    adb shell
    # flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery.img
    If that finishes without errors, you'll now be ready to flash the zvd update.zip

    i copied the img file using the usb-ms toggle feature on the recovery i have already but it didn't go...

    be sure to remount the sd-card. Either from the mounts menu or
    Code:
    adb shell mount /sdcard

    actually, i tried again the adb command instead of the usb toggle and got this instead:
    Code:
    adb shell mount /sdcard
    /sbin/sh: adb: not found
    / #
