    Anyway, update out.

    Evolution users the apahe2 license, and since copy-right is automatic when published both work as protection. When I release my own app the source is going to be under the apahe2 license.

    Thanks. I'm still confused though so I'll have to do some research and pick some brains.

    Update out to the app.... had to add a permissions fix if installing flash_image was necessary.

    Yo Jonny you said this didn't work on the OS. Did you try it more than once?

    Updated to fix the problem people were having when flashing recovery as soon as the app opened.

    More technically, I added a waiting period in the code while it flashes and asks for root so that it does the job right without it being noticeable to the user... my code is starting to get messy...

    You the man ACR! You saw a problem and you made a solution. I started out my android life on sdx though on the Samsung intercept so I was using Joey Krim's flashimagegui for over a year and have never had any problems with it so that's what I keep on my SD card. I did try your app out though and it does do everything it is meant to do. Much love and don't stop now.

    PS I love your themes :beer:

    Also I like how small you've made your app. I so wish there was an option to refine your search on play by app size. I would bet 98 percent of the time people would download the smallest app to meet their needs.

    That's an extremely valid point right there. An option like that would be incredible.

    Ok, I was on Stock with what my signature says and tried to flash recovery, it would not flash it. I used flash image GUI and no problem. recovery.img was on the root of the SD card like app said. It wouldn't flash it if life depended on it.

    Yep. I'm currently running stock (yes how embarrassing) and I can't flash anything either. The reason is (from my research) is that stock doesn't contain the flash_image binary... so... you need the flash_image binary installed. However, the cat binary I use in the app to install the flash binary is absent too.... so there a circular problem. I need a way to install the flash binary directly to the system partition.

    Actually... I am fixing my code and realized that the method to flash the recovery is never called in the latest version... haha. I fixed that and I'm getting it to work on stock. It's taking a couple tries to get the flash image binary to stick though so I might just make it forget installing it and call it from the sdcard... which would make it smaller still.

    Oh I know.

    Update out. I fixed a major embarrassing problem... be patient when the toasts pop up because the system might be slow when installing the binary and then flashing the recovery. Report any errors.

    I missed this post... very sorry. Not that I know of, but since the Optimus T is in the Optimus One family, I would say it should work. It couldn't hurt to try.

    For someone who said earlier that you have flash image GUI on your sdcard for all your flashing needs you seem like an awfully big fan. Thanks for the support
