    Just wondering if our phones will get a touch recovery like the OS? I know the OS and OV are the same phones with the hard buttons swapped. So I know and can verify it will work on our phone. Just wanna know if we can get one to call an OV touch recovery.

    I'm actually using it now makes it a lot easier. The only thing is it doesn't show progress bar or and words saying its loading files. But it works

    so far so good with this OS touch recovery. flashed IHO,ICS and weekend project with zero problems. i read on the OS forums that battery wipe was taken out because it does nothing for their phones. would that be true for our phones since they have the same hardware?

    Wiping battery stats does nothing for all droid phones, if I am correct.

    Correct. Wiping battery stats does nothing, but the CWM team (aka Koush) hyped the "feature" and it quickly became a common misconception about Android.

    I'm gonna try to build a version of CWMT for the Optimus V wither tonight or tomorrow.

    I honestly like the old recovery, you actually have to press buttons to do something, not say that you accidentally pressed something. It's only good if your buttons are broken or something.

    It's kinda hard to "accidentally" flash or wipe something when the only buttons are back, up, down and menu. Also, the hardware buttons still work as expected so you don't even have to touch the screen to use it.

    The reasons I use the OS touch recovery is because 1. I hate the IHO recovery because you have to use the camera button to select and hate the orange color. 2. The touch is a lot easier on my hands to use. But I mean to each their own. Everyone has their preferences. Oh and drew when you build one for the OV can you keep it the color It is for the OS? More plesent and easier to see IMHO.

    I have seen times where a battery wipe was needed to correct errors, but most should never have to.

    It can be done manually if needed, I'm sure you know that though.

    I think a touch recovery for the v would be a nice option to have. Some will use it some won't. I think I'd stay with my tried n true IHO recovery

    Ive had a fully charged phone and it read 50%. Deleted the bat stats and everything was back to normal.

    I think what drew is getting at is a lot of new roms have wipe bat stats cooked into the install script. Personally I think its a good idea so you dont get corrupted data from multiple roms.

    Just flashed drew's latest recovery from the OS forum. Works 100% on my OV. backup and restore is flawless. Flashing works great. Now you can see the files being backed up and loaded. Drew and everyone else who worked on it did an awesome job. Anyone wants to try go over to the OS forum and check out the Clockwork touch recovery. Be sure to hit the thanks button when your overthere.

    Battery stats literally has nothing to do with the display of battery charge levels. There is a link in the CWMT thread to a post by Dianne Hackborn (A Google kernel dev) that addresses this misconception.

    I have never seen a ROM wipe battery stats.

    Ive read that article.

    I cant explain why deleting that file made my battery indicator work properly again. Hell it could have been just rebooting it that did it.

    With my sgs4g each time I install a new rom the bat stat file has been recreated.
