    My guess is to prove that you (a) are not an evil robot or (b) to cut down on people who simply register to access downloads and then don't contribute back to the community.

    I've found this guide works: http://forum.androidcentral.com/lg-o...js=1#community. If anything, you can use GingerSnap.

    This will get you much further than anyone trying to explain it.

    The proverb "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime." comes to mind. GL and happy android-ing!

    Look at the last post on page 1. That's your answer. Do a little reading and you will know exactly what's next...

    Did you bother reading even the first post of the Xionia Clockwork Recovery thread? The instructions are right there.

    Asking for help doesn't (or shouldn't) irritate anybody. You just need to explain exactly what it is you don't understand. We are all willing to help here!

    After launching adb shell and before beginning the flashing process, you need to execute "su" to get a root (#) prompt then do the flashing steps.
