    Default Re: [How-To] Simplified UNROOT and return to STOCK

    I get stuck on ADB Shell. I get error...

    - exec '/system/bin/sh' failed: No such file or directory (2) -
    check_LGE_official: fopen(/sdcard/ally_security) error

    I run adb devices and it shows up as...

    A10000193DB202 Recovery

    My brain is pretty much gone at this point.

    Do you already have Stock Recovery? If so, skip that step.

    That step is supposed to be done while booted into Android, not Recovery. It sounds like you might have stock recovery already though.

    I have xionia and am stuck at the android logo.. I guess I will take out the battery and load back into recovery..
    But is it really necessary to get rid of all my data? I think I will just backup my most recent NAND cuz I don't want to lose all my data.

    This was on the first try at the install:update

    It already got rid of xionia so i guess I should wipe data/factory reset??? since now I have no backups.. PLEASE HELP

    Ok i went ahead and tried wiping data... reboot now?

    Booted into android.. starting to feel really stupid now.

    Rebooting back into recovery and applying update for the second time. I wasn't sure before whether I'd be doing this from xionia or stock but now I know. Last thing I saw was writing radio image before I rebooted so I guess I did it right XD

    thanks for listening to me rant!

    Default Re: [How-To] Simplified UNROOT and return to STOCK

    I'm terribly new at this.

    My brother helped me root my LG Optimus S so I'm not even certain how to use "adb shell" or "terminal." I'm fairly certain I have a "Stock Recovery" since my phone will only boot to ClockworkMod Recover v3.2.0.1 and from all the reading I've done I think that qualifies as a stock recovery.

    I've never flashed a rom, or done anything remotely fancy with my phone since rooting. In an effort to reduce bloatware and open up space I tried a factory reset. Bad idea.

    I was running ZVH software and continually getting a "software update" notice on my phone. I'm guessing this is for ZVJ but I could find no way to get there.

    Anyhow, I've tried to follow these steps for about 6 hours. I'm stuck on step 3. I can run the update.zip but the lines read:

    ClockworkMod Recovery v3.2.0.1
    --Install from sdcard...
    Finding update package...
    Opening update package...
    Installing update...
    (Here it hangs for roughly one minute, then adds:)
    Install from sdcard complete.

    I cannot seem to get it to proceed to "write the radio,boot android, or recreate davlik cache"

    I'm at my wits end and desperately need help. I can't do my job without my phone. Please be kind and thorough since this post is not for lack of effort.

    Thank you in advance.

    Sounds like xionia or armor ra or possibly the rom manager recovery. Before u flash u need to make a backup if your doing update use stock recovery provided and run update manually.

    Thank you for your speedy response. I've been attempting this stock recovery but I can't get past step 3 since if I install the update and then press the menu all I see is the android symbol with the box and no words populate.

    I do have pretty thorough back-ups of all data and contacts and apps through titanium but I can't seem to get to any actual interface. It's like the system bios of a computer but there seems to be no operating system.

    Are you running a custom rom? In your recovery, how many options do you have. Stock has 4 options. You MUST be on stock recovery to run an update.zip like that.

    I have 9 options to select.

    I must not be on stock recovery. It seems stuck on this clockwordmod recovery even when I reboot and try the [hom]+[voldown]+[power] button combinations. How can I get into stock recovery?

    Boot into android, and either manually install stock recovery or use on of the automated tools like the one in the stickies. On my phone now or I would track down the links for you.

    I don't seem to be ABLE to boot into android. It only ever boots to the same recovery screen with 9 options.

    I've now gotten adb shell to run some but am still getting the issue when typing "su" I get "/sbin/sh: su: not found"

    This led me to try to install the zip of superuser directly onto the sdroot and then using the recovery I "install zip from sdcard" which seemed to successfully install the su but I continue to get problems when following the instructions for adb shell.

    Is there some way to boot into android?

    That is because adb is not much use in recovery. You could try a factory reset from recovery and wipe cache/dalvik cache and then reboot. There are instances where this will allow booting into recovery.

    I just reverted to stock from Xionia CWMA recovery and HydroRom and it worked perfectly! I used ADB shell method with no errors. (Followed instructions to a T). After the reboot on step 3 I got a lot of Force Close Errors, but after the wipe in step 4 everything worked. I even got the OTA for ZVJ, which I allowed.

    Many Thanks and thumbs up to sfhub.

    Unzip and place the "000root" folder on the root of the sdcard (not in any folder). After that you can leave or delete the recovery.zip file as you choose. I normally leave all files in place until I am certain the task is done.

    I have the COT (Cannibal Open Touch) recovery with the Oxygen 3.0 ROM and I am trying to get the phone to stock so it can be activated again. Previous attempt from Sprint to reactivate didn't work.
    How does one change to a different recovery? Is it necessary? Can I return to stock with what the phone presently has?

    You just need to be on a stock rom, so if you made a nandroid backup prior to installing a custom rom you can use that to restore and activate.

    Thanks for the reply.
    Unfortunately I do not have a backup. Going through some of the threads on unrooting has me a bit confused as to what is needed to make this happen. I downloaded the stock recovery and update.zip
    In the initial post of this thread, sfhub directed the process but I get an error when I try to run the update.zip but I have the COT recovery and not the Xionia. Even disabling the verification doesn't work when I apply the update.zip.
    I'll try again and report any problems.
    Thanks again

    Alright.
    Got the phone back to stock. Sometimes when you think you've done whats been asked, you assume there must be another way BUT going back and following through on each step (which isn't much), you find that the instructions are correct as is.
    So thanks!!!

    Default Re: [How-To] Simplified UNROOT and return to STOCK

    I'm trying to revert my daughter's (ZVJ) HydroROM phone (with COT v1.2 recovery).
    I don't know if COTv1.2 can directly flash the ZVD update.zip (like CWMA can). Can it???

    So I tried to do it through terminal emulator....
    I unzipped "recovery.zip" folder and loaded the "000root" folder onto the top level of the SD card.
    I openened "Terminal Emulator". I typed "su" and got "$" prompt. (Fine). I changed directory. (Fine.)
    But when I tried to install vd.sh I got the following response:
    Installing stock VD recovery... mount: Operation not permitted
    install-vd.sh: line 11: /system/bin/flash_image: Read-only file system
    Unable to chmod /system/bin/flash_image: No such file mount: Operation not permitted
    install-vd.sh: line 16: flash_image: command not found Done
    .

    I tried it twice and I'm sure I typed the command right both times. If I do an "ls" command I can see that "flash_image" is in the directory.

    Help?

    Where are you now? Still on ZVJ rooted with cot v1.2? If so, try flashing this and booting to android and back to recovery.

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/oyb9nhpt4m...e.unsigned.zip

    That should flash xionia in place over your cot recovery. Now you are set to do the shortcut method!
