    I figured it was time to re-write the desc. Ok, here's the deal. This utility can accomplish many things for you, it can root, install a custom recovery, a stock recovery, or change the boot mode of your phone. It also does so with little-to-no interaction, which is why I made it, so that noobs could have their phone rooted and have
    a recovery. Also, so that when I revert to stock, I can be lazy and have this do it for me. Anyways, I was digressing. All of the source is posted on the website, along with links too the builds. You can find that all in the third post. So, to sum this post up, it can do root, custom recovery, stock recovery, adb shell, boot modes, and lastly ADB Terminal (Prompt) Thanks for using this.

    [BUILD V10.0:] https://sourceforge.net/projects/lgvortexutility/


    ​* * * [V10 1:42PM 25/07/2013] Fixed Updater, switched to XML-based updater by me. Uhhh, fixed bug-logger. Updated CL. Other fixes.

    [V6.5 12:31 11/14/2012] Small Bug Fixes, added in MD5CHECK compenents. Fixed a bit of issues with adb network and with the img dl. Added in ROMS menu, that includes forums links, etc.

    [V6.0 13:22 10/14/2012] ALOT of Bug fixes, added stock recovery, it no longer includes 'stockrecovery.img' instead 'wget's it from my dropbox. Also, I shortened, and explained more of the code in the .bat. Yeah, that's really all....

    [V5.5- 19:17 *10/5/2012] Fixed all-in-one package. (Root + Recovery). Improved startup screen, improved Setup code. Improved Root and Recovery interface to make it look less 'Clumped'.

    [V4.5- 20:16 10/1/2012] Been coding for 5 hours straight... What i achieved was a fixed root, and the recovery actually installs! Oh goody! I can verify these work, and also I added the LG adb driver as part of "setup".

    [V4.0- 12:23 10/1/2012] RECOVERY WORKS! I finally got myself a USB cord and it worked! In other news, I fixed some bugs, and some leftover "Cd %userprofile%/adb " references which had most likely cause root not to work for people who had used 3.0.

    [V3.5- 12:02 9/24/2012] Root was tidyed up, added boot modes. Recovery code is nearing final (It's
    'rem'ed so go into the bat and unrem it to use it.) Also, Simplified main code. (StandAlone)

    [V3.0- 14:13 9/20/2012] Root Works for sure. Recovery is BETA, and that's all there is too it.

    [13:10 9/20/2012] Root works, I unrooted with Superuser temp unroot, and then used RATC exploit, now is telling me its rooted . Recovery, is making HUGE progress, expect a beta of this to be released today.

    [01:27 9/20/2012] Recovery installs; requires a little User Interaction. (Pushs file twice, then flashes it) Root is working, with RATC, but untill i get an unrooted stock, I can't test too see if it roots.



    - Ubuntu 12.04LTS/Linux Mint -

    [NOTE: This one currently is only able to do recovery, by using ADB over network.]

    [V3.0 ~5:30 12/16/2012] - See for yourself

    [V2.5 11:10- 12/5/2012 - Still only recovery, fixed issues with it, fixed adb installer, fixed life.....

    [V1.5 16:02- 10/23/2012 - Only Recovery, Root is in the making. Uses Adb Connect. Don't worry about editing the script, it uses your input to connect to your device

    [V1.0 09/14/2012] - Code ported, now to setup ADB dependencies.

    [V0.5 09/14/2012] - Setup for ADB, now to port code.

    Your links are broken, do you still have a copy of the lg vortex utility? My daughter has this phone and I would like to try and put ICS on it or something other than stock that works well.

    any help would be awesome.

    What am I doing wrong? I have installed drivers and placed in modem mode.
    Also, my computer seems to be seeing my device.[ROOT][RECOV] LG Vortex Utility [LINUX][WINDOWS]-devices.jpg
    And yes, device says USB debugging connected.

    Any help appreciated.

    Hey, this looks really good, and I can almost get it to work. The only issue is that whenever I run it (using run.bat) it says there is an update available (according to the server), asks if i want to update it, and whether or not I do, it eventually leads me to a screen that says thanks, gives me a log in (for what?) and says to press any key to exit. I haven't seen the screen with the numbers that has the rooting phone option. Can you help me out?
