    btw does this prog make my phone rooted??
    This program installs the software necessary to make a backup. It's the screen that loads with the blue font on your phone.

    No this does not give you root. What it does is do all the legwork to get you to the final step before root. Use this software and install a custom ROM and you will have root.

    I just rooted my phone last night. Do I use this program to make a nandroid backup? Is it the option to flash the ROM to the SD card?

    Boot into recovery, you can make a backup there.
    Turn off the phone, then hold home, vol. down and power until you see LG, this will take you into recovery.

    Recoveries in general save to the SDcard to either Nandroid or Clockwork folder, in this case, the latter.

    There is a handy app called AnReboot that will reboot or reboot into recovery, kind of nice. It's much better than holding those 3 buttons all the time.

    I am not able to find an option to backup. there are only 4 options. These are the same options that were quoted earlier. I wonder if it has to do with the fact that mine came with 2.2.1 installed. Does that effect wether we can achieve root, or flash a custom recovery?

    Hi I tried this and did all the steps correctly, but my phone reboots into the regular recovery (where the only menu options are "reboot system now", "apply sdcard:update.zip", "wipe data/factory reset", and "wipe cache partition"). Any help?
    Ditto, followed the instructions, installed drivers, obtained temp root, wrote the recovery file.
    Boots to android system recovery <3e>

    What went wrong?

    Great work.. If I could make a suggestion for the future maybe you could add an option to return to stock and unroot.

    For some reason you guys aren't getting the recovery installed.

    You should see 8 options in recovery.
    - reboot System Now
    - apply sdcard:update.zip
    - wipe data/factory reset
    - wipe cache partition
    - Install zip from sdcard
    - backup and restore
    - mounts and storage
    - advanced

    It should also say Xionia CWMA V.1.2518.4 at the bottom.


    4 means the recovery didn't load and you are seeing the stock LG recovery.

    Thank you for posting that. I didn't know what it was supposed to look like.
    I wonder if the 2.2.1 firmware version is keeping the custom recovery from being flashed?

    Yes, thanks for the list.
    Strange, everything goes fine according to the instructions including the 3-4 sec. write of the recovery file at the end with the vertical bars.

    I really dislike typing out ADB commands. I'm sure some of you feel the same. This program combines some of the most common tasks we perform with ADB and automates them for you.


    Where is Recovery Flasher?
    All the features are built into this program. I have decided to expand this program's functionality.


    Features Explained

    Flash ROM - Place a ROM in the 'ROM' folder renamed rom.zip. Hit enter and the zip will get flashed to your phone automatically

    Flash Recovery - Will help you flash a recovery to your phone. For the Optimus V users, it will help you install all the needed drivers as well as obtain root privileges. Optimus T, S, and One phones will be able to flash a recovery.

    Wipe dalvik-cache - Self explanatory .

    Mount /system r/w - Allows read/write access to /system

    Push ROM to SD card - Self explanatory (pushes to root of sd)

    Push framework-res.apk - Pushes framework-res.apk to /framework, wipes dalvik-cache, and reboots the phone for you.

    Push bootanimation.zip - Will remove boot animation and replace with one of your choice. (removes from /data/local as well as /system/media)

    Reboot - Reboot

    Reboot into Recovery - Obv.

    Recoveries
    CWMA v1.2518.4 for V and S
    drellisdee's Recovery for T and One (thread with dl link will open automatically)



    Recovery Instructions
    - Download
    - Unzip the folder somewhere (desktop is easy)
    - Double click RecoveryFlasher.exe
    - Choose 'flash recovery'
    - Place your phone in debug mode >setting>applications>development>USB debugging
    - Choose what you want to do
    - Follow the prompts and hit "any" key when told
    - Your phone will reboot into the recovery for you, and from there you can mount your sdcard and transfer a new ROM to flash. Or even easier, use the new "Flash ROM to phone" feature

    You're responsible for your own actions Mr. Sister

    FAQ
    Can I use this with a different recovery?
    -Yes. Any recovery can be used for the supported devices.
    -To use an alternate recovery for the V or S, rename the new recovery to vrecovery.img and replace the 'vrecovery.img' included with the new one.
    -For the Optimus One, the recovery needs to be named grecovery.img.
    I don't understand the version numbers. Why did some numbers get skipped?
    -First digit represents a huge change. Second represents new features. Third represents a bug fix
    -2.3.1 = Second huge update with 3 feature revisions and one bug fix

    When i am trying to flash the Recovery when i get to the point where the program checks to see if my phone is rooted or not. (when the cmd screen comes up) i only get a message saying
    *daemon not running, starting it now on port 5037*
    ADB server didn't ACK
    *failed to start daemon*
    error: cant connect to daemon

    Okay so I've tried multiple times now and I've come to the conclusion that I simply cannot get anywhere with this tool at the moment. It seems that my device is retaining the old recovery. ADB is showing successful root. Also has anyone managed to get past the problem? I see that others seem to be having the same issue. Bman123 what firmware were you on when you did this?

    Found the problem. I believe that at least in my case the recovery.img was not being pushed to the sdcard. What I did was mount the sdcard to my pc then copy it to the root of the sd and used adb myself after mounting the sd back to my phone with the command "flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery.img" followed by "reboot recovery"

    I tried to do my neighbors optimus t last night with no luck at all, it kept saying the phone wasnt rooted. I rooted it using Z4root, wifi tethering and super user work so I know the phone is rooted. Then I kept getting a message saying to put the recovery into the recovery flasher folder and rename it grecovery.img so I did that and it still didn't work.

    I used the optimus v program and it worked great, the t is a beta for sure lol

    Have to admit it was all my fault for not renaming the included recovery.img to vrecovery.img.
    For whatever reason I thought the included recovery.img was automatically renamed by the options for the different phones during the process.
    Not sure if it helps anyone else, but it all worked fine after the rename.

    Thank you for all your work on this, sorry for the obvious newbie mistake.

    I think that was probably the cause of my problem back on page one. I just ended up putting Zefie's CM7 zip on the sd card and pointing to it in CWMA.

    All those new features you added to your program look really nice.

    You must root to install custom recovery to load a custom ROM to OC. Custom ROMs are already rooted (most of the time). Custom kernels for the V allow overclocking. If you are already on a custom rom then you can OC. If you are already on custom ROM, then you're rooted. What exactly are you asking?

    tony5593, I took the CM7 zip and put it (into the root) on my sd card. When CWMA comes up I went through the menus (using the volume keys on the side) and selected the zip. After that it installed the ROM and rebooted into it.
