    Default [APP] ROMTools v2.3.1

    Please read entire post!





    I really dislike typing out ADB commands. I'm sure some of you feel the same. This program combines some of the most common tasks we perform with ADB and automates them for you.


    Where is Recovery Flasher?
    All the features are built into this program. I have decided to expand this program's functionality.


    Features Explained

    Flash ROM - Place a ROM in the 'ROM' folder renamed rom.zip. Hit enter and the zip will get flashed to your phone automatically

    Flash Recovery - Will help you flash a recovery to your phone. For the Optimus V users, it will help you install all the needed drivers as well as obtain root privileges. Optimus T, S, and One phones will be able to flash a recovery.

    Wipe dalvik-cache - Self explanatory .

    Mount /system r/w - Allows read/write access to /system

    Push ROM to SD card - Self explanatory (pushes to root of sd)

    Push framework-res.apk - Pushes framework-res.apk to /framework, wipes dalvik-cache, and reboots the phone for you.

    Push bootanimation.zip - Will remove boot animation and replace with one of your choice. (removes from /data/local as well as /system/media)

    Reboot - Reboot

    Reboot into Recovery - Obv.

    Recoveries
    CWMA v1.2518.4 for V and S
    drellisdee's Recovery for T and One (thread with DL link will open automatically. recovery not included)



    Recovery Instructions
    - Download
    - Unzip the folder somewhere (desktop is easy)
    - Double click RecoveryFlasher.exe
    - Choose 'flash recovery'
    - Place your phone in debug mode >setting>applications>development>USB debugging
    - Choose what you want to do
    - Follow the prompts and hit "any" key when told
    - Your phone will reboot into the recovery for you, and from there you can mount your sdcard and transfer a new ROM to flash. Or even easier, use the new "Flash ROM to phone" feature

    You're responsible for your own actions Mr. Sister

    FAQ
    Can I use this with a different recovery?
    -Yes. Any recovery can be used for the supported devices.
    -To use an alternate recovery for the V or S, rename the new recovery to vrecovery.img and replace the 'vrecovery.img' included with the new one.
    -For the Optimus One, the recovery needs to be named grecovery.img.
    I don't understand the version numbers. Why did some numbers get skipped?
    -First digit represents a huge change. Second represents new features. Third represents a bug fix
    -2.3.1 = Second huge update with 3 feature revisions and one bug fix

    Yep. Just put the stock recovery in the folder and rename it vrecovery.img and it will flash it.

    All the tools can be used on any phone. If the M has a custom recovery then I can implement it.

    Default Problem Please Help

    Hi MMMark111 I have a problem. I used your recovery flasher it worked fine, but the problem is that I accidently had hit the boot-loader, and now every time I shut the power off, and turn it back on it goes into boot-loader and an automatically powers back on and an resets and erases every thing. like I flashed a new Rom and goes to the first time set up screen. I can no longer go into recovery because of this. Please could you help me? Thanks for your patients.

    once in recovery you have a selection to use boot-loader, I accidently hit it and now every time I power the phone off and turn it back on, boot-loader runs real quick and then it resets (reboot) its self, like if I had flashed a new Rom and then I have to put in my gmail, apps and every thing else.

    My program doesn't have any options that have anything to do with the bootloader. Is this something you did on the phone and not your computer?

    the recovery that is installed on a phone when you run your recovery flash program has bootloader within the recovery.

    @cmillions can you boot into recovery from ADB or by powering back on pressing <Home> + <Vol Down> + <Power>?

    Okay...I really think you'll need to take the plunge with ADB if the button combo isn't working. Do you have everything installed on your computer so you can enter ADB commands?

    **EDIT** One more thought, you could try drewwalton19216801's tool. That automates the ADB/SDK process. It's worth a try. Link to OP here.

    no, unfortunately I do not have the sdk tools installed. What is the name of the procedure that Im looking to do, to undo this android recovery system.

    If you follow the link I posted above to drew's tool you won't need to install the SDK tools. They're included in his download.

    If you're trying to get him to 'adb reboot recovery' why not just use the "Reboot into recovery" option in my program? A bit quicker.
