    anyway to put the backside updater into my Mirage IHO rom I am current running and have to download the latest backside, and do a fully clean install?

    I still can't get my recovery or boot logo/animations to show. I would be nice to be able to flash a new version.

    You can try using ADB to push it to /system/app from your PC, don't copy it from your sdcard. Then reboot, and try opening it. If it crashes right away, use a root file manager and make sure it's permissions are the same as other apks in the system/app folder. If it opens, press your menu key and select Other, then select Install Other ROM or Theme, and choose the update zip file you want to try. The tricky part is the reboot command may fail. Regardless, it should still write the boot command, so if it fails or force closes when you try to do anything related to rebooting from the BacksideUpdater, go ahead and reboot and see if it works. Let us know.

    note- you may have to use a root file manager to install it after pushing it to /system/app/BacksideUpdater.apk

    I have both screen drivers included in CWM-Green-recovery, but you still get a black screen?

    Yup, it's a Optimus S screen. For some reason. I don't get the LG logo, boot screen, boot animation, fastboot, or recovery.

    If I tired this method out I'd be flashing blind. A volunteer to test could be able to fix it because they have the modder's holy Trinity of recovery, rom, and fastboot. I only can access 1 of three, the rom.

    long shot. but seeing as it does have an S screen,might flashing using a flash method for the S work versus using a flash method for the V? it seems the roms are compatible for the most part,maybe the S recovery system for flashing,etc could get you flashed without not being able to see.

    I don't want to clutter stuff here with my issues aside from my orginal question. There is another thread for that. But yeah, I tried. I think it's a embedded driver looking and not finding what it needs.

    It is setup for rom's like OM that need the sd-ext partition wiped in order to have successful install, tested and working.

    I've decided to share my recovery seeing as my rom does need a recovery that formats the sd-ext partition if the auto install function is used.

    I have ClockworkMod 3..2.0.1 that I had installed from ROM Manager like a LONG time ago. Do I just reboot into recovery and then flash the .img then reboot?

    Also should I uninstall ROM Manager first?

    If you the Backside version you have is from 05022012 or 05222012 then you have the BacksideUpdater app that you can use to flash a new recovery version. If not run this command in terminal.
    Code:
    flash_image recovery /path-to-recovery-image/name-of-recovery.img
    First uninstall ROM Manager and stop using it for the OV.

    I have a similar question to the above poster, that I could use help clarifying before I install. I also have clockwork installed. Will having clockwork installed interfere with installing backside? Do I need to remove clockwork? Will the img just be a complete wipe? I would prefer a complete wipe. If I just need to run flash_image recovery /path-to-recovery-image/name-of-recovery.img how do i get the the terminal or do i use the terminal in clockwork? Thanks.

    Edit: I successfully did the term command in term emulator however there was no changes in the behavior of my set.. It still just booted into cyanogen like it normally does.

    Google Flash Image GUI and rename the recovery.img to recovery.img, it is an apk's file that has its own flash_image binary.
