    Default [RECOVERY] CWMT Recovery 5.0.2.7-th7 (T is for TOUCH!) OV

    With permission from drewwalton19216801 I have created a thread for CWMT Recovery. This is copied from the OS forum. This will work with our phones.

    I am not responsible if you brick your phone.

    This thread will be up until drewwalton19216801 offically supports the OV. Once he does this thread can be closed.

    Works with old and new screens.

    Thanks to the following for verifying that it works on new screens.

    Special Info

    1) CWM Recovery currently can only flash newer ROM ZIPs that use edify scripting. Amend scripting is not supported at this time. Basically, Gingerbread ROMs (including CM7 and CM9) ONLY for now.

    2) Radio.img flashing has been disabled (read: should be disabled). This hasn't been tested, but all of you should know by now to NEVER flash OTA updates with a custom recovery

    3) Drew ported this in two-ish days while remoted into my desktop from work. TeamViewer FTW!

    4) I (Drew) have removed the "wipe battery stats" menu item from the Advanced menu and will not be re-enabling it no matter how much people complain. According to Dianne Hackborn, wiping the battery stats does absolutely nothing to your battery life.

    5) Starting with TH5, CWM Recovery (now CWMT Recovery now has touch controls! In order: Back, Down, Up, Select. The physical buttons still work as expected if you don't want to use the touch controls.



    Flashing Instructions (Im not sure if this will work with our phones. I dont know enough about adb to attempt. If someone wants to test and report back then I'll delete or edit this as needed. Terminal flash is in post 2)

    1) Make sure USB Debugging is ON and that you have ADB access
    2) Download the CWMT Recovery v5.0.2.7-th7 image
    3) Place the recovery image on your SD Card.
    4) Fire up an ADB shell
    5) Make sure you are in a root shell. If you are not, execute the "su" command now.
    6) Execute "flash_image recovery /path/to/recovery.img" (replace /path/to/recovery.img with the ACTUAL path to the recovery image)
    7) Reboot to recovery mode
    8) PROFIT!

    Download CWMT Recovery v5.0.2.7-th7

    Known Issues

    1) Touch control surfaces extend upwards to the top of the screen.
    This is intended behavior, it's called being fat-finger friendly


    Changelog

    v5.0.2.7-th7: Text overlapping the touch controls no longer happens, thanks to sblood86's awesome investigative skillz. Also, the corrupted nandroid backup issue should be resolved as we are now forcing TAR backups for partitions.
    v5.0.2.7-th6: UI update, thanks sblood86
    v5.0.2.7-th5: Skipped th4, first pass at touch controls!
    v5.0.2.7-th3: Removed "wipe battery stats" option from advanced menu
    v5.0.2.7-th2: Added "wipe system/data/cache" option to main menu
    v5.0.2.7-th1: Initial release

    Any issues should be reported to THIS THREAD and not the OS THREAD. But here is the link to the OS forum to check out development.
    http://forums.androidcentral.com/lg-...7-t-touch.html

    I will update when drew updates the recovery.

    I dont do donations. If you want to donate donate to the developers.
    All I ask is you hit the like and thanks button on here and on the OS thread.

    PLEASE READ!!!!

    Update....A little late as I don't have a PC and no longer using VM. As LeslieAnn stated in her radio update post DO NOT FLASH HER RADIO UPDATE WITH THIS RECOVERY. IT WILL BRICK YOUR PHONE. Sorry for not updating it sooner. Also if you use Jerry's ZV9 rooting method DO not use this recovery to flash the SU zip or it WILL brick your phone as mentioned in his post. Use his method of rooting then if you want to use touch recovery flash it after your phone is rooted.

    Quick Tip. For thoes who are not familar with installing through terminal, I will give instructions here.

    Please give thanks to all the devs and people that has given us these options and testing. I take no credit as I am only giving options of whats already been posted to flash our phones. If i forgot anyone please let me know so they can get the proper credit.

    Thanks to LeslieAnn for her post on how to flash using terminal emmulator.

    1. Download CWMTRecovery_5.0.2.7-th7_thunderc.img
    2. Make sure it is on the root of your sdcard.
    3. Rename the newly downloaded img to v.img
    4. Open terminal of your choice.
    5. Type su then hit enter
    6. Type flash_image recovery /sdcard/v.img hit enter
    7. Type reboot recovery then hit enter. Your phone will reboot into your new recovery.
    8. Enjoy your new TOUCH recovery!!!

    Option 2
    Recovery flashable zip.

    This flashable recovey zip style was made by mmarz a while ago.

    Steps

    1. Download recovery image in post one. Place on root of sdcard. Rename recovery to vrecovery.img
    2. Downoad zip file in post 2. Place on root of sdcard. DO NOT unzip the zip file or rename it.
    3. Boot into recovery.
    4. Flash the Flash_vrecovery.zip
    5. Select Reboot to Recovery.
    Welcome to your new Touch Recovery!!!

    Option 3
    Flash Image GUI

    Thanks to cammycool, pbailey212 and theexile1 for their combined information and download link.

    Steps

    1. Download recovery and place it on the root of your sdcard
    2. Download Flash Image GUI and change the file extention from .zip to .apk and install http://www.mediafire.com/?bj10jcokraw7dh8 or renam and push to your phone throughADB
    3. Open Falsh Image GUI and give root permissions.
    4. Select Recovery Image.(There will be a green dot beside the recovery image option if selected)
    5. Select Browse and browse and select the recovery image you downloaded in post one
    6. Select Clear dalvik and clear cache (it will take a little bit to load after reboot)
    7.Select Flash Image. Cick yes on the first pop up. Select Reboot on second popup. Phone will now reboot.
    8.One phone is fully booted, reboot into recovery

    I can verify that mounting sdcard in the recovery does work to transfer files from your PC. Just remember to reboot into recovery after you transfer your files. If not you may not see them on your sdcard.

    from what i read on my other post will the ov get touch recovery, that flashimagegui wont work. if you follow my instructions in the second post i dont foresee any problems using terminal. i will probably post a flash zip later with flashing instructions to make it noob friendly.

    thank drewwalton19216801. all i did was test it on our phone out of sheer bordom and its easier for me to do what needs done in recovery. in theory i knew it would work on our phone. i came from an OS to an OV and know the hardware is the same.

    Flashimage GUI will only flash a recovery, if the word "recovery" is in it, its so you don accidentally flash the wrong thing and screw up your phone

    when you get time could you post the steps on how to use that program? I know its an apk but never used it. That way I can add a third option to the second post. Of course you will get the credit for the directions. I would greatly appreciate it.
