    Default How to boot into recovery

    The button sequence to boot into recovery is to hold both volume buttons and power until the lg screen shows up, release the power button but continue holding the volume buttons until recovery is on screen.

    Although in the future all you need to access it is a blank file called update.zip on your sdcard, since that is all the recovery checks for.

    Hmm maybe all of the vipers behave differently then cause ours would boot past recovery unless there was an update.zip present because the stock recovery checks for its presence, if its not there it will boot past it. Your phone must be an anomaly.

    To boot into recovery can we use a rebooted app to reboot into recovery?

    Reason I ask is because I had cwm on my phone and used the delooper zip and got cwm off my phone but I don't think it but the stock recovery on my phone.When I
    Reboot into recovery using an app all I get is Droid and a box with an arrow coming out of it and what appears to be
    Status bar but it does not move. Does that mean its loading the update by itself? Am I in recovery or did the delooper zip not
    Install the stock recovery for me?

    Make sure the update.zip is on the sd card.

    I got the update on the sd card but it just hangs on the screed with droid and the box with the arrow and the status bar is not moving and it hangs on this screen. I did not nor did I have to select and files to upload, it just went to this screen its self and nothing.

    Basically it is hanging on this screen, what did I do wrong? Does it search for the file itself and automatically download the update?

    I am not new to rooting and flashing, just not this way. So used to cwm to do all the work for me.

    When my phone shows this and I hit the power buton it says rebooting. I did not have a menu show up to select the update file. Do I need to put a recovery on my phone? Did the delooper remove cwm but not put the stock recovery file on my phone? I am at a loss because it just hangs on the screen with droid and the box with the arrow for over 20 minutes.

    Basically I dont get a menu to select anything, just droid and the box with the arrows.

    Now trying the unbrick method but getting an error when I go that route and run the flash tool as admin. I am getting a side by side configuration incorrect error when I use the unbrick method. Ugh

    here are the short directions too this

    1- go to windows icon on bottom left side of your pc display
    2- click on windows icon and look for search files and folders in that place type cmd and press enter
    3-you will get a prompt that says C:\Users\whateverhere>
    4-type in cd\ in that prompt and now it will show C:\>
    5-type in cd\adb and press enter and now will show C:\ADB>
    6-type in adb devices and press enter
    7-now it will show what device you have just make sure your USB Debug is on
    8-now type in adb reboot recovery and press enter the phone will restart in recovery

    notes- make sure your update.zip is on the sd card.
