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.
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.

So I am getting this far....
# chmod 755 /system/bin/flash_image
chmod 755 /system/bin/flash_image
# mv /system/etc/install-recovery.sh /system/etc/install-recovery.sh.bak
mv /system/etc/install-recovery.sh /system/etc/install-recovery.sh.bak
failed on '/system/etc/install-recovery.sh' - No such file or directory
What do I need to proceede?

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.
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?

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...

Making recovery available for Optimus V?
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.

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.
