    Pretty much read all of that and thank you. Problem still being,however, phone will not root again even with a formatted SD..this is the main concern at this point-- and the useless recovery menu.
    I lost my market app along with these other things as well that I hadn't before mentioned.

    so what IS the best method to get this re-rooted, remove this CM recovery version, and put the proper ROM in ??....it's not un-rooted back to version 2.2.2....still 2.3.4 if that makes any sense or helps in the posts for suggestions.

    thank you kindly

    gingerbreak or gingersnap should still work for root... use bobzhome's recovery... use terminal emulator or flashimagegui to flash recovery... :-)

    Well firstly don't use rom manager with this phone... EVER!

    How are you on a 2.3.4 rom but don't have root? any 2.3.4 rom for the optimus v has root by default unless you manually unroot it. You can test this by typing "su" in terminal emulator on the phone. If you have root the $ will turn to a #

    Once we've confirmed you have root get this file
    http://www.mediafire.com/?vzc5k8taj9smmll
    Put it on the root folder of your sdcard and rename it to v.img

    Open terminal emulator and type in
    su
    cd sdcard
    FLASH_IMAGE recovery v.img

    That should get you a working recovery. Then go here

    Read through the instructions on the third post carefully and you'll have backside IHO (android 2.3.7) running in no time

    Maybe but then "it's not un-rooted back to version 2.2.2....still 2.3.4 if that makes any sense or helps " doesn't make much sense.

    Thanks for everyone's posts and replies... let's just say I'm the proud owner of 2 OV's now.... no further comments on that lol. but in reply as I was saying I mainly un-rooted the phone via gingerbreak . No, it's not the slider, it's the OV with a new screen. Before this was done apparently that was the point where I had the wrong recovery flashed and wasn't even able to backup anything.
    So I'm basically looking to get at least a file manager or something on there again And get the proper android recovery back in order to install the stock rom.
    Hope this makes more sense and is clearer

    Use gingerbreak to re-root and follow my instructions above. You can move the recovery.img from your download folder to the root of your sdcard with a computer using usb mass storage
