    You're going to have to boot into the Recovery menu which is: Hold home and Volume down and turn on the phone. Then from there flash the ROM that matches your Radio ZVD or ZVJ.

    I've only ever used xionia. I'd probably just try to start over from scratch. Go into the sticky for automated root and follow the instructions. Or Google search root and rom optimus s noob. There is a super easy sticky on the other forums that I used to gain root and custom recovery. Hope this helps.

    I don't know what it is but IV used rom manager Even after reading the stickys and all the warning........rom manager is like a big red button that says "don't push" but you push it anyways

    Because it's the "easy" way, which will supposedly do everything for you, instead of having to take the time to do a little reading and research.

    I do know how to manually boot into recovery and I didn't use it because I thought it was the easy way I joined this forum after already rooting my phone and using Rom Manager to flash superuser so I didn't know not to use it

    Try re-flashing your recovery image if you can get into your current ROM. Also with Cannibal, you can replace RomManager with GooManager.

    I did the process found here... http://androidforums.com/optimus-s-a...optimus-s.html I haven't had any problem like what your having so I'm useless there. I was always told rom manager= paper weight with our phones so I stayed away..lol can you get the phone to load your original rom? Or does it just stay black screen? What's a bricked phone do when you start it?

    Right now I can't get back to my stock rom I'm stuck with superuser till I get a recovery up and running
    I wouldn't say that my phone is bricked because I have a working rom but no recovery. I can boot normally (unless I try to boot into recovery) I'm using it now so I wouldn't say its bricked yet just really unstable

    I don't understand how the recovery was deleted without you deleting it. hmmm... yea my best guess is to try and start over completely. Hey if he has superuser can he just grab a recovery and drop it into the system folder? I've never tried but it doesn't sound impossible.?. Sorry I can't help more I'm thinking tho..lol

    Nvrmnd. I spaced thought superuser was root explorer. I looked online and other people have lost recovery b4 and did a sbf. They were on droids but maybe the process is similar. I have no clue how recovery was lost. Hopefully a developer will chime in with a remedy.

    when flashing cannibal recovery, are you typing "flash_image recovery ..." into a terminal/shell, or are you attempting some other method?

    His recovery was lost because he used rom manager.

    What errors, if any, do you get when you try to flash_image recovery? Since recoveries are used to flash ROMs and ROMs are used to flash recoveries, maybe ROM Manager deleted your recovery partition or otherwise hosed it.

    It tells me "flash recovery: not found" and if it did delete my recovery partition how can I restore it?
