Re: OK SO
Hailing from M3 and XDA, if you need some help, man, maybe we can work together. I just got this phone for my girl a couple weeks ago, and I've been researching it for days - not only online, but on the phone itself.. digging around in the file structure, checking out all sorts of files, reading through log after log.. AFAICT, I don't think this thing has a stock recovery, at least not in the format we're used to seeing with other devices.. then again, I'm new to LG - I'm used to Samsung, Moto, and Nokia. I've run through a 'cat /proc/last_kmsg' via adb, and in the middle of the log (but I'm guessing from initial boot), it talks about a /system/etc/install_recovery.sh' (I'm guessing a shell script to flash the recovery at initial boot after production) not being found, so it disables flash_recovery.. And I'm assuming this gets called from an /system/etc/init.d(or maybe rc.init/) startup script.. I'm going to try a little trickery of making such a dummy file, and see what last_kmsg says then. If the build that's out is bricking peoples' phones (as I've been reading on AC here), it may be because it's not building a recovery partition in the first place because it's missing the file, and/or function, to do so.

PM me if you want, and I'll give you what I've been finding..
P.S. My eventual goal with this, is to get CM9 on it for her..
