    I have recently bought a OV. I understand newer OV encounter blackscreen when using Clockworkmod recovery so im trying to use a terminal emulator to flash "iho-vm670-recovery-4.0.1.4.3.img". I downloaded the file with my computer and put it on the root of my sd card. I followed the command
    su
    cd sdcard
    flash_image recovery iho-vm670-recovery-4.0.1.4.3.img

    But it always says img not found....
    Please help. Thank you.

    i went and downloaded the "flash_image" and put it with the recovery image then did the command
    su
    mount -o remount, rw /system
    cp /sdcard/flash_image /system/bin
    cd /system/bin
    chmod 777 flash_image
    flash_image recovery /sdcard/VM670NH_recovery.img
    reboot recovery
    and it says cp: not found.

    Welcome! And also, don't know why my post said out-of-date... Probably autocorrect. Silly autocorrect.

    the problem is that "Flash_image" is a file that the OS needs to know HOW to flash that recovery to the phone.

    that file doesnt exist in the stock rom, so the terminal commands come back with file not found.

    I found a link that puts a file on the SD card that contains the needed files, and in terminal emulator your point it to that folder and flash the recovery using a script.

    it worked very very well when I rooted a friends OV 2 days ago, but I cant seem to find the link to that right now. when i do, ill update this.

    it made flashing the recovery so much easier than hoping the terminal commands will work (which they dont on a stock rom)

    edit, here it is.

    basically, follow the instructions, except when it tells you to place your recovery in the folder, replace whatever they have in the instructions, with the recovery you download from the InferiorHumanOrgans github, they have one for new OVs that works great.

    rename it to recovery.img, put it in the folder they tell you, follow the rest of the instructions using Terminal in android, and it will flash.

    Whoa whoa whoa whoa. Hold on there! Read this thread. ROM Manager is a high brick warning for the optimus v and is NOT recommended for use (especially if you're planning on using an IHO variant.)

    A little tip for flashing through terminal, since these phones are not easy to type on, shorten the name before you start. Easier, faster and less chance of a typo.

    i go with what works . i have used clockworkmod on two of my OVs and both times it worked perfectly. Now i have custom roms on each one. I'll still use it on older OVs.

    It's not just a matter of mistakes.

    Would you rather type "a.img" or would you rather type "iho-vm670-recovery-4.0.1.4.3.img". First off, "a.img" is a whole lot easier to remember than "iho-vm670-recovery-4.0.1.4.3.img". Besides being easier to remember, the first also only requires about 5 key presses, the latter requires more than 40, mess up just one, and you are doing another 40+ key presses.

    With the shorter name you don't have to bounce back and forth ensuring you get it right, you spend less time typing it, and you eliminate almost all chances of having to repeat it over again.

    If you had one of the new screen V's you'd be looking at a blank screen in place of your recovery with rom manager
