    You said earlier to extract the .rar file, but is there a reason why I am not able to extract it? Normally Vista gives me the option to extract, but it does not for this.

    Windows in general does not have a native .rar extrator, only has the ability to extract .zip's.
    Download WinRAR archiver, a powerful tool to process RAR and ZIP files and never look back.

    Are you sure you are flashing the correct recovery image?

    I probably packaged the wrong one for you guys. I'm looking to get someone who actually owns an Optimus V to be the official caretaker for the Xionia series (requires knowing how to compile, knowing git, knowing boot.img and update.zip)

    I already PM'd Red about it.

    What is the flash_image? I am assuming the xionia_cwma_12518.4.img is the new custom recovery. What is the other?

    Flash_image is the tool you can use (if you don't already have one loaded) to flash the recovery partition...

    How do I delete backups that are on my sd/card? I have three nand backups and they are taking up space on my sd/card, I dont see an option in the custom recovery mode. Can I just delete them using my astro file manager?

    Yes, you can just delete them with a file manager.

    zefie, I ran those commands again tonight with the theory that something is telling the phone to lock up at the lg logo by writing to those partitions. This data gets erased when the phone is able to be powered on.

    This is the output of my wife's phone:
    $ ./adb shell
    ~ # strings /dev/mtd/mtd7
    recovery
    --wipe_data
    ~ # strings /dev/mtd/mtd8
    ^[MBd\M
    ^[MBd\M
    ^[MO
    ^[MO
    ^[M8
    ^[M8
    ~ # flash_eraseall /dev/mtd/mtd8
    Erasing 128 Kibyte @ 160000 -- 91 % complete.
    ~ # flash_eraseall /dev/mtd/mtd7
    Erasing 128 Kibyte @ 60000 -- 75 % complete.
    ~ # reboot

    I grabbed the data from my phone after wiping both (my strings /dev/mtd/mtd8) was empty. After erasing, I ended up with a data there:
    $ ./adb shell
    ~ # strings /dev/mtd/mtd7
    recovery
    --wipe_data
    ~ # strings /dev/mtd/mtd8
    -aM[
    -aM[
    ~ # flash_eraseall /dev/mtd/mtd7
    Erasing 128 Kibyte @ 60000 -- 75 % complete.
    ~ # flash_eraseall /dev/mtd/mtd8
    Erasing 128 Kibyte @ 160000 -- 91 % complete.
    ~ # reboot

    What's odd is that the phones will cycle power on/off (with waits in between) if it's hooked to external power.

    When I get back into recovery, both phones will display the "recovery" and "--wipe_data" when I run the strings command on /dev/mtd/mtd7.

    I may be grasping at straws since I'm still unfamiliar with how Android does what it does and it's been years since I tinkered with Linux.

    I did have some success powering down with Quick Boot and powering back on right away. I've done that once, then tried with the power button and got it to boot right away again (a rare occurance for sure).

    My last idea, which I'm hesitant on doing since I'd like to have root, is format system, cache, boot, and data, nandroid backup to my rooted V9 backup, flash V9 stock recovery, run the ##786# wipe, and then just run the OTA. I really don't want to have to re-play all those levels of Angry Birds since I won't be able to restore data from Titanium. I'm also unsure of that fixing the problem.

    Is there a reason you want to install the VC update from the OTA update.zip? Are you thinking that installing the VC update via LG Software Updater is the cause of your problem? I don't think that can be the cause by itself because many other people have installed VC via the LG Software Updater and they don't have this problem. If it is involved at all, there'd have to be some other factor.

    If I've misread what you are trying to say, then if you install the VC update using the LG Software Updater (and had previously restored the V9 recovery image), you'll still be able to root, install Titanium, and restore what you had backed up in Titanium.

    I know that if I have root, I can get Titanium. I was just side-tracking after getting some data for zefie. Mainly wanted to get his/others thoughts.

    The annoying thing is, I've followed the unroot and return to stock thread to the 't', I updated with the LG Updater tool, and then followed the rooting procedure to a 't' on two phones and they both have the same power off/on issue. I know it's my fault for causing the issues, but I am getting the feeling that there are steps missing in the guides, the un-written rules that people who have been messing with android for years just forgot to put to paper. (Yeah i sidetracked a bit more, but I felt it important)

    That's cool. I only asked because you mentioned V9 then installing OTA (VC) and I wasn't sure why you'd want to install VC that way unless you suspected something was off with installing VC using the LG Software Updater.

    I'm also seeing this when I try to do a Dalvik cache wipe. Any ideas what's causing this, or is it entirely normal actually?

    I get that sometimes as well, but I've never had any issues so I don't think it means much.

    A little something about ##RTN# (##786#) on the LS670..

    1) All it does is set lge boot flag (mtd8) to FACT_RESET_3 then reboots
    2) Recovery picks up on this and wipes data and cache, no different than our custom recovery.
    3) Somehow it will reboot into stock ROM but not CM7. Once it does boot into stock ROM it sets lge boot flag to FACT_RESET_6, which proceeds to wipe your provisioning data (thus you have to Hands-Free Activate or call to manually activate if it fails, like new out of box)

    Only LG roms (like stock, nRom, ThundeROM, VCRom) can to a full LG factory reset. This is due to the LG ROM having the code required to send the OEM commands to the radio layer.

    You can also use the "LG Style Factory Reset" option in my recovery, but again, ONLY WITH AN LG BASED ROM.

    And thats how a Factory Reset works on here.

    I have CWMA Recovery on my Optimus V and I'm trying to access it but I'm not sure if I can as the phone appears to be in some form of a bricked state. I went to do the factory reset in the recovery menu and I had it plugged in via USB too. When it did the factory reset I though it would just shut down after that so when I saw it booting back up I thought it was because I had the USB cable plugged in. I pulled it and then the battery to kill it as I didn't want to wait for it to boot up and then just shut it down to get to the CWMA recovery menu. Apparently, you shouldn't remove the battery until it boots up fully to the home screen after a reset. I thought it already did the reset process completely and would be good to go.

    Now I can't reach the recovery menu. When it starts up it always says it's doing a reset and then proceeds to reboot at which point it goes through the Virgin Mobile animation and gets stuck on the Virgin Mobile logo that remains behind during the boot sequence. It never even gets so far as the shimmering "android".

    Any idea on how I can get to the recovery menu? Holding down the key-combo to launch it turns the phone on and it says it's resetting. Then it just freezes up again. Any help would be appreciated!!!

    bad. CWMA comes with LG Sprint recovery to handle the factory reset, VM's might be different.

    Zefie, is there anyway to bypass the reset request that tries to go through and force my way into CWMA? If I can get there I can restore a nand backup of stock. The trouble is everytime I turn the phone on - even if using the recovery loader key sequence - it says it's resetting and freezes.
