    The app probably contains it's own copy of the flash_image binary, I'm just surprised Harmonia didn't have it, still wonder if the app removed it?!?

    Anyway, glad you got it flashed!
    That makes sense - maybe it did!

    Thanks a ton Jerry!

    Thanks! I'm glad to hear it's working on a ROM other than BACKside, and I hope it helps your ROM development with an easier upgrade process!

    I need to add some error checking/catches to the parsing code. It's pretty simple code, just using splits, so it shouldn't be too hard to prevent FCs in the next version. However, the manifest is what ensures your users get your package exactly as it is meant to be delivered. So manifest errors are not allowed, and even with code improvements, should prevent the app from continuing at one point or another.

    I also need to add a check of the currently installed recovery, and only show the auto-install option for those known to work with it.
    (Known working and tested: CWM-Green, BobZhome, IHO, Drew's-Touch, should work with other CWM based recoveries known to work safely on the OV).

    No wifi at home? You can adb over wifi on most IHO based ROMs.

    Will be making some changes to the recovery.c wipe_data option when called outside the gui, in preparation for adding that option to the auto-install steps.

    This is the second or third time someone has had that problem, but flash_image is definitely in there, so something is removing it.

    somehow i completely forgot about that!

    im about to test the updater in it. but the colors are weird.. a mix of your green and the touch blue. ill fix that before i think of posting it.

    i also turned wipe battery stats back on and am trying to find what makes it brick on radio updates..

    So I bricked with this new recovery
    I used the updater to replace the iho with this recovery, and found the button to check if I had the new radio, so i checked and still had the zv4. I then installed the new rom using it and it worked GREAT (you did an amazing job on this recovery). I then re-downloaded the radio and tried to re-install it using this recovery, and when i hit restart I got the lg logo and that was it.
    I cannot boot to recovery (Home Button, Volume Down Button, and the Power Button.) and only get the lg logo when I try to enter emergency mode (Return Button, Volume Down Button, and the Power Button) (POWER + VOL DOWN + CAMERA + SEARCH).
    I attempted this http://forums.androidcentral.com/lg-...using-kdz.html but it could not find my phone.
    Is there any way to get the computer to see my ov in this state so I can use this fix, or any other fix that might work.

    Why did you attempt to flash the radio with this recovery?!?
    That's known to only work with certain recoveries, otherwise it bricks your phone!
    (edit: have added a warning to OP not to flash radio)

    First, try the various methods in the stickies in this forum to unbrick a phone.

    If that doesn't work, this thread should do it, but it's a long and tedious process.

    Sorry this happened to you. Please let us know how it goes!

    Thanks!

    The newest version of the BacksideUpdater will sort of, since devs have to include it (or another recovery) in the manifest for the time being. Press your Menu key and select Show All Versions, then scroll all the way down. I'll will be adding the ability to have the updater check the phone for the currently installed recovery, but only for recoveries that have known log files (for CWM, its normally /cache/recovery/last_log).

    Does the LG logo look as if it flashes from time to time? If so, it could be a recovery boot loop.

    If so, it all comes down to timing. You'll be able to see the phone with adb for a moment, and in that moment you have to be fast. You'll need to have already typed some comands in, then use your arrow keys to redo them over and over, along with cntrl+c to stop it, till you get it to work (if it works at all). Search this forum for recovery bootloop strings (I think by mmarz or whyzor, but I'm not sure). That will give you the method and commands to type in. Hope it works for you!

    Jerry, you've created a ROM manager solely for your ROM! This is quite awesome, I must say. It will make me update far more often. I hate rebooting into recovery and worrying I'm going to miss something when flashing an update :P Thanks!

    Great recovery! Glad I'm not the only one that didn't like using the camera key out of fear of wear. Plus I'm coming from an optimus s and xionia recovery glad to have keys back. Thanks!

    Don't get me wrong, Bob's recovery is great to just old habits hard to break.

    Playing around with the new updater. Went in and selected a rom from sdcard, it verified MD5 and I told it to reboot to install and get following error

    Finding Update Package...
    e:unknown volume for path [/mnt/sdcard/Download/BACKside-IHO-VM670-04172012.zip]
    e:Can't mount /mnt/sdcard/Download/BACKside-IHO-VM670-04172012.zip
    Installation Aborted

    Attached is Last_Log

    *Fixed - I got it to work. Ended up doing a full wipe and reflashed newest build and works fine now. Pretty neat... Thanks Jerry

    Looks like your updater might only like File Manager. Tinkered around and I found the error i was getting from my other post is happening when I tried es file explorer or root browser. Works Great with file manager

    Hey Jerry, you rock! I updated BACKside, then updated my recovery. Link2SD gave me its usual complaints, but I can always get that to work.
    You do excellent work, much appreciated.

    Thanks for the heads up! I'll look into what's keeping the other file managers from working.
