    ROM
    Eclipse 1.2 rc1

    Default No recovery

    I'm sure this is in the wrong area to post this and if someone could direct me the proper thread I would be very greatful. I was trying root, install a custom recovery, and a rom. I followed one of the posts and installed clockwork mod recovery from rom manager. Now I am stuck with a recovery that only shows the lg and then black screen. I have tried changing to a different custom recovery that works with the newer optmus v (the ones shipped with the optimus s screen software I believe) via terminal emulator but still no luck. I cant even enter stock recovery mode. The phone still works fine just cant proceed to the cm7 rom till this is fixed. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    I had looked at that post already and tried flashing the two that had the recovery image and still the same thing. The phone is actually my friends and monday when we get togather I will try the two recoverys again in case i did something wrong. I have also found the stock recovery image and was wondering about flashing it. Then using stock recovery to install the zip with the proper drivers that he has mentioned on that post. What are you thoughts on that?

    Go to the Android market. Download app: "Flash Image GUI". Go here: . After downloading that new recovery.img use "Flash Image GUI" app to apply that file to your "recovery image". After finished... power off, home, volume down and power button until your LG logo shows then let off. Bam! Problem solved. I had this issue and that was my fix. New LG screen custom recovery solved without a PC. *DO EVERYTHING FROM THE PHONE OF TOPIC*

    Default Re: No recovery

    I had the same exact problem. Here's how I fixed it.

    First, make sure you are rooted and that busybox is installed properly.

    is a cool little free app that helps with this step.

    Second, get 's version of , optimized for the Optimus V. Also, get Latest Gapps ,
    and finally get this recovery image

    Put these files on your SD card, then, in a App type the following commands, one at a time (in other words, hit [Enter] after each line).

    Code:
    su
    mount -o remount,rw /system /system
    cat /sdcard/flash_image > /system/bin/flash_image
    chmod 755 /system/bin/flash_image
    mount -o remount,ro /system /system
    flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-clockwork-3.0.2.4-ov.img
    It is very important that you type each line exactly. If you get any errors, don't continue.
    If you get no errors, type this in

    Code:
    reboot recovery
    This will boot you into the custom recovery image that is compatible with your screen.

    From there do these operations (use vol up, vol down, camera and back buttons to navigate menus)

    Factory Reset, wipe cache & dalvik-cache, then format all partitions EXCEPT /sdcard.

    Flash the custom ROM.zip from sdcard and gapps.zip

    Reboot and enjoy the new ROM, the first boot takes longer than usual, also some problems may disappear after rebooting.

    ROM
    CM 7.1-BobZhome(10182011)

    Default Re: No recovery

    You did all of that? Ouch. The method posted by "SuperJelapo", my girlfriend, takes literally less than a minute. And is literally fail proof. Not being argumentative just trying to keep it simple and easy. When I had the same issue I found nothing but Techno babble and coding and stuff I didn't want to do after ROM manager soft bricked two VM670s. Follow the method posted by "SuperJelapo" after you've got your selected ROM, Bobzhome or MiRaGe are awesome, downloaded to your SD card with the latest Google apps, all links needed are provided by previous poster, downloaded to your SD card and the flash image as well. Use "Flash Image GUI" app from the Market and apply the flash image from your SD card. Click "Recovery Image" within the app and select "Flash" allow up to 20 seconds. When completed, poweroff. Press and hold Home, Volume Down, and Power until the LG logo appears. Release. Once in Recovery mode: Backup data, Factory Data Reset (if coming from stock or other ROM than CM7) Wipe cache, go to "advanced" and wipe dalvik cache. Use back button. Install from SD card: ROM, and then Gapps. Reboot and enjoy! I'm running the MiRaGe build w/ stock launcher and status bar addition(build 10222011) on this VM670. Bobzhome build has fixable mms issues. I can help people fix them as well. Enjoy.

    I love Mirage. I applied the stock launcher add on and transparent status bar add on. Very smooth and works great. Not bad for 100 dollar phone and 35 bucks a month huh? I came from a Nexus S 4G from Sprint and prefer this phone, like it is now. You can also get a flash player installed. Go here: - download the flash zip and use "ES File Explorer" from the Android market to find Adobe in the "downloads" folder. Long press on it, extract, click the folder and click on the red Adobe logo. Install and bam. Flash on a VM670!

    I'm also have a blank screen when booting into recovery mode with clockworkmod recovery. I tried using the flash image gui method but it didn't work. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated; I really want to put a custom rom on my phone.
