CWM Touch Recovery - Ported from Koush's Offical Nitro Recovery
Koush released an official CWM recovery for the LG Nitro this weekend, which is a touch based recovery. I've ported it to the LG Spectrum and except for one issue, we seem to be golden. I've found a work around for that and all the instructions are below.
This is a fully functional version of CWM. Nandroid backup and restore work without a glitch as does formating of /data and /cache.
WARNING: IF YOU ARE NOT FAMILIAR WITH THE DD COMMAND OR HOW BADLY YOU CAN MESS UP YOUR SYSTEM, WAIT FOR A PROPER SCRIPT TO BE WRITTEN TO USE THIS.
Grab the following file:
Save that to your adb directory.
Make sure your phone is connected and in debugging mode and that you have already rooted
You phone will now reboot and hopefully into CWM recovery touch. If you get a blank screen, I have found this typically means your phone has been on too long. Fully power it off and leave it for a bit. Then turn it on and try the "adb reboot recovery" command again, or use a program like Rom Manager to get into recovery.
How to fix boot loop into CWM:
This assumes that your system got really bad and you used the button combo (down vol + power, wait, power, power) to get into CWM the hard way as a last resort. This sets a flag in the system that will constantly force you back into CWM. Here is the fix.
As a percaution, do a nandroid backup of your phone while in CWM
Next, fix what ever was causing you to boot loop in the first place that made you have to use the button combo.
Then mount your sdcard in CWM (mounts and storage -> mount sdcard)
Grab this file:
Ideally, you should put this file on your SD card when you install recovery, but you can also push it with ADB while stuck in recovery or use another smart phone to download it to your SD card and then put the SD card in your phone.
In CWM go into "install zip from sdcard -> choose zip from sdcard ->" then scroll down until you reach the file "cwm_bootloop_fix.zip". Click on it, then confirm. Let it do its thing. When it's done, you can now go back to the main menu and choose reboot and it will boot normally.
just to make sure that as long as i follow the script that was posted I should be good to go, never had to use to DD command but just making sure that as long as i got line for line I will be ok , Tha's the only thing holding me back

Hello, this is my first post - I signed up recently while trying to root and flash a recovery for the first time. I cannot get past the blank screen - each time I turn off the phone, wait, and enter the adb reboot recovery command, the phone gets stuck on the blank screen. I can only turn it off by holding down all three hardware buttons.
I notice this thread has been inactive for a while, but I'd really appreciate any assistance for a latecomer.
The blank screen is caused by the thermal sensor. Your phone actually has to cool off, not just be off. Also, you should probably re-flash the .img file onto your phone as it may not have fully gone thru. That is the best info I can give you without having your phone in front of me.
