    Not sure. There's a link in the OP for the OS forum I'm sure the info your looking for is there.

    It's CWM v5.0.2.7 with a few modifications (primarily making it run on the Optimus S {and subsequently V}, and the adding of touch controls {there are some other things but I'm too lazy to list them}).

    Point is if CWM v5.0.2.7 supports link2sd nandroid then yes; if not, then no.

    Edit: I haven't checked myself but assuming it doesn't, do you know a recovery that does? I'm sure Drew or myself could look into merging such functionality.

    Perhaps more important would be to discover why this version of CWM cannot flash radio images.

    In the OP I copied from the OS forum it states radio flashing was disabled. Maybe that's why it bricks when flashing radio. If it sounds like I'm being a jerk I apologize lol.

    good question. I'll look over on the OS forum and see if an older version has radio flashing and report back.

    Edit duhhh me long night lol all I had to do is look at this OP since its copied from the OS thread lol.

    Why worry about it.
    Flash a different recovery, flash the update then put this back.

    It's not like we have a radio update every month.

    So I'm pretty sure that's Bob's recovery (someone correct me if I'm wrong), that should just be CWM based recovery same as the recovery found here; only difference is going to be the kernel I expect and possibly version. Anyway, point is I expect there are much differences, certainly nothing that should effect backup/restoring to sd-ext. Most if not all of the backup functionality is handled by platforms/bootable/recovery/nandroid.c which as you can tell from the commit log Drew has only made one change to this and I can't imagine how it would effect the sd-ext backup (at least not in a way that would cause it to fail to restore), I could of course be wrong.
    Someone wanna check the version number in Bob's recovery that way I might be able to get a better idea of possible changes made to nandroid.c

    In regards to the disabling flashing of the radio; it was to my understanding that flashing a radio image could cause serious issues (when using custom recovery); having said that if someone has successfully flashed a radio image from a non-stock (fully open source) recovery I would love to know about it, as this is something I was considering looking into anyway (Xionia does this to an extent if I recall but it's also a much older recovery version).

    Edit:
    I expect there are much differences
    That should have of course been "aren't" but I think you all got my meaning

    Alright I give in. Here's a freshly compiled build of Cannibal Open Touch v1.0.6 for the LG Optimus V.

    http://www.teamhydro.net/downloads/R...hunderc_vm.img

    It's untested as I don't have an Optimus V but should work fine. Don't flash unless you are prepared for a potential brick.

    Known issue, nothing I can do about it right now. For now, use a REAL web browser on your computer.

    It means exactly what it says; you ran out of memory. Reflash it until the error goes away.

    NO WAY! I wanted that so bad! I'll test it out for you! Thanks!

    Edit: Boots up just fine! I see the LG logo from the stock recovery that appears before it goes into recovery though. Not sure if that's related to this recovery or not.

    Edit2: Ya, I just erased and reflashed again. I think it's somehow the recovery is getting the LG logo to appear. I don't get this with other custom recoveries..

    Can't offer any explanations for the LG logo.

    As far as the recovery goes, I need everything tested before I can feel comfortable making an official release. ROM/kernel/theme flashes, nandroid backup/restore, the whole nine yards. Except for GooManager support which is apparently broken at this time.

    I just installed it via terminal, and it installed just fine. As far as the LG Logo is concerned, I've always had it show up every time I turn on my phone, recovery or not?

    I've had one issue so far with the recovery. I tried to do a nandroid backup, and it seemed to lockup trying to backup sd-ext. It just sat there doing nothing for about an hour before I gave up. It progressed fine up until then.

    I havent tested restore of a nandroid yet though, or anything else. I will probably soon enough. I have to switch back to IHO(I keep a nandroid just for tethering ) to use tethering since it doesn't work in quattrimus yet. This will happen today, so I will report back this evening or tomorrow.

    why not just use easytetherpro?... no need to restore another rom just to tether... :-)

    Cannibal Open Touch v1.0.6 V
    --------------------------------------------

    Works:
    touch screen controlls (including the fat finger friendly option you recently changed to be not so vertical)
    reboot system now
    wipe data/factory reset
    wipe cache partition
    wipe system, data, cache
    install zip from sdcard->choose zip from sdcard
    backup and restore->backup
    advanced->Reboot Recovery
    advanced->Wipe Dalvik Cache
    advanced->Set UI Color
    power off

    Untested:
    Everything else

    + I wanted to say that before you did the V build, I did backup and restore using the S build, on my V phone, and it worked great.

    More testing coming. This post will be edited.

    Going to do a little testing of my own here in a few minutes. I'll try to report back soon on how things go.

    Thanks drewwalton19216801, I appreciate your effort in bringing us something different, especially since you've made it for a phone you don't even own.

    While I'm at a physical keyboard, I've always wondered why there isn't more interest in developing recovery ROMs. I don't mean as much as OS ROM development, just more than there seems to be at the moment. I don't know, it's just seems really interesting to me, but maybe I'm part of a minority in that opinion.

    Okay, so, flashed it in terminal, rebooted into recovery, looks nice! I initially mistook the touch buttons at the bottom for an ICS navigation bar, so I was trying to touch the items in the list of objects at the top, obviously with little success. So I took a second look at the touch buttons and realized my mistake. Works very nicely!

    I've got nothing I want to flash at the moment, so I changed the GUI colors around a little, very nice! That's about all I tried really, but it worked perfectly! That's an option I've been hoping for since the first time I switched from Xionia to BobzHome's CWM.

    I'll report back more as soon as I have a reason to test it.

    By the way, it would be cool to be able to manually select the Hex value of the UI color (if that's what format it uses). Don't know if that's something you're interested in or have the time for, but I think it would be a nice feature. Don't get me wrong though, I'm perfectly stoked to have the options that we have with this recovery. It's many times more than we had previously.

    Thanks again for your work!
