    Did you update to .1? That should be fixed. Mine restores but it seems to corrupt something because I have PowerManagement boot loop, which usually happens if SettingsProvider.apk is unsigned or corrupted. meh.

    Also any backups that were created in GNM's recovery are 100% working for restore, since thats whats saving my bum now. lol.
    Nope, I didn't realize there was an update. I'm still on v1.2518. I'll update to .1 and post results.

    Holy crap was I confused! Zefie - in the new .1 recovery .rar you named the image recovery.img and not the name you refer to in the commands so I was getting: "error opening /sdcard/xionia_cwma_1258.1.img: No such file or directory"

    Tried flashing it twice and realized it's just recovery.img so once I made the change I successfully updated to .1

    I was then able to restore this morning's backup created with your original release. I don't know if that helps you or not.

    Yeah sorry I forgot to rename it. Alright, I just did so this should not be an issue for future downloads Sorry about that!

    I'm used to xz which renames the file if you rename the archive lol.

    Can you make a new nandroid backup right now, then reboot back into recovery (look under advanced menu), then wipe and restore (to the one you just created)?

    Let me know if the phone boots after restoring the new nandroid.

    Keep going, that error is good, it means you don't have the file that would try to delete the recovery.

    Great, done and working.
    Might want to mention that in your command sequence that if it shows up to continue, as to me errors are bad, and I do not like to continue untill it does what it is supposed to do.

    Heh.

    *edit*
    One last question, what is this "apply sdcard:update.zip" under the main menu, and under "apply zip from sdcard" menus?
    Is that some generic message or?

    Made a brand new backup with .1 and rebooted to recovery. Wiped data/cache/dalvik and restored that backup successfully. Rebooted just fine for me!

    So...

    I'm concerned... I've experienced a few instances where I can't seem to boot into recovery...

    (either via adb restart recovery, or by the "three finger salute" method...)

    I'm not sure what to think about it at this point... perhaps I have a key dying - phone's only about a month old at this point...

    disconcerning anyway...

    Edit: at one point, I'd wondered if I'd managed to corrupt my file system on the recovery partition... I've noticed that if it gets corrupted, fsck doesn't seem to do much for you, and only via scripts can you format your partitions...

    edit again: I've reverted to the first version again... which seems to work fine when doing an adb reboot (at least at this point)...
    I've managed to get my phone back to a state where I can consistently boot into recovery.... first step was to go back to the original cwm version, then flashed the other one (non cwm) and now I'm back in a functional state... (think I'm going to just breath a little before I think I've bricked my phone again...)

    I don't have a V to test so officially I'm going to say no, just in case.

    had a problem that was self induced. thought i had a brick for sure.
    while installing instead of extracting the .rar recovery file i just changed the extension to .img ...i know... as soon it rebooted i realized my idiocy.
    so after a couple hours of deciding to go to the spring store and seaching around i found some stuff...

    not sure what i did but...i got it to boot and i still have root....

    i was reading thru some stuff here and found a similar problem...
    tried an alternate method to boot into recovery
    volume_up + home + power and released and pressed volume_down when the lg splash went a way... nothing happened for a couple min but i could tell it was still powered on. removed the battery and cable and tried the same thing again...this time it went straight to the sprint splash after the lg splash and booted normally...

    i'm gonnafinish the recovery install properly and try and find an answer as to what i did...

    Just curious if that is in your plan.

    If not, I would love to pick up with your open source, and make the necessary tweaks (i.e., change back and menu keys; change stock kernel) to make your recovery work with my brand spanking new Optimus V (Virgin Mobile).

    Please let me know.

    Just repeating someone's Q from the first page:

    What is the difference between this recovery and ThunderC recovery?

    Also, do I have to reinstall my NRom or this will still boot without a problem?

    This one seems to have a bunch more options and more features, (like radio.img flashing protection and not bricking the phone if you use the LG/Sprint Factory Reset option).

    You won't have to reinstall anything after putting this recovery on.

    Thanks. So I just download and extract the necessary files to the root of my SD and do everything from the Terminal Emulator on my phone and don't need my PC, right?

    EDIT: Got the new recovery working. Double thanks.

    I'm getting the following error in ADB while trying to install this recovery:

    Error writing recovery: No space left on device

    It happens at # flash_image recovery /sdcard/xionia_cwma_12518.4.img

    I tried to boot into recovery and I'm stuck at the LG splash. Going to battery pull and hopefully recover. If anyone else experienced this let me know. Device has plenty of available memory.

    **UPDATE Okay, so I was able to do a full reboot after a battery pull. Relaunched ADB shell and started again from scratch and it worked this time. Not sure what happened.
