    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 (rename included recovery to vrecovery.img)
    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

    WOW. This program did every single thing for me. Thank you very much! You deserve a medal!

    This program allowed me to easily flash the newest clockwork recovery mod to install the CM7 Gingerbread ROM without all the hassle of typing in all those adb commands.

    Yeah the only reason I didn't instal a rom was all those commands. Soon as I saw this earlier I was like I gotsta try this lol. Glad to hear this is working for other people too, its so much easier this way. Thanks again man

    WOW! Very nice.

    Where were you weeks ago. :P


    By the way, I believe most V roms will work with this recovery (I used it for a bit), but it will not reflash all of your older Nandbackups. Just be sure to wipe between roms.

    I wasn't exactly sure what to do when I got to Super One Click. I hit Shell Root but eventually it ended up (Not Responding) with the last message being something along the lines of "waiting for device". I didn't know it had to be in Debug Mode.

    After I figured that out it went smooth until the end, or what I presume was the end because it was the last command window that had some feedback on it. This is what it said.


    After rebooting the phone it loaded back into the factory ROM. Eventually I just manually installed Xionia-VM.zip through Xionia CWMA when it came up on the screen by running your Recovery Flasher program. When I rebooted it had the new ROM and it seems to be unlocked. Also seems to take a lot longer to boot up so I'm not sure if something got screwed up along the way.

    Can the recovery included in this package install the stock virgin ROM offered on this forum also?

    Yes, I have flashed (all with this, and without problem):
    Stock + Xionia
    Rodimus
    A stripped version of Rodimus
    Zeffies CM7
    aospCM7

    Seems the most reliable and easy to use so far. It restores most backups from others as well, which is a big improvement. Just be sure to wipe everything before loading a new rom or backup.

    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?

    Not sure but should I backup before doing this? Not sure if I even can backup before this. Anyways what are the safety issues here? Also will flashing this recovery force me to do a factory reset? Truthfully I don't know yet if I want a custom rom as I have many accounts already linked to my phone that would be difficult to recover again as I am not very good with passwords. Though looking at how easy this is I am thinking about it as I would be spending very little time in actually flashing the new rom and recovery.

    ~Thank you and sorry for being a noob :P

    You can't really make a backup until you flash a recovery. The recovery does not modify your personal files and settings unless you tell it to.

    You do not need the SDK. This comes with everything you need. Once installed you will be able to make a backup.
