    More help - direct from a thread in which I made a huge *** of myself. . Ah well.

    Cliffs:
    Install SDK with ADB
    Boot phone to recovery and connect to computer
    Open ADB console
    Run the commands...

    I would like to use IHO Backside for my ROM Can I use this ROM
    or do I need to select a alternative?
    Is there a compatibility risk between the gapp and ROM?
    Do I need to find gapp that works specifically with IHO?
    I'm so sorry for all the questions, I'm so new at this, I had
    no business digging into this until I was well versed in all aspects and
    terminology.
    I have all the files needed except the gapp. Still have the IHO zip.
    In fact I copied the entire contents of the SD card to my laptop prior to rooting.

    I attached the gapps I have used with all my gingerbread ROMs (Which includes IHO)
    Unless this is an older zip which I don't believe it is so.

    Thank you so much.
    I'm doing something wrong however(no surprise there).
    The files are not being pushed to SD. Bad SD or Im incorrectly "pushing"
    the files. I complete the process, and type adb remount. Says remount sucessful.
    type adb shell, get the hashtag cursor and proceed to flash the img files.
    Claims there is no directory or file. I am clearly entering something incorrectly.
    Can using CAPS cause this to happen, I 'm copying the names exactly how I see them
    ie: BACKside-IHO-VM670-04172012.zip is how I'm typing this in
    gapps-gb-20110613-signed.zip is how this is typed in.
    flash_image.img for this
    xionia_cwma_12518.4_virgin.img for this

    I'am following the list, starting with the flash image, and on down the list.

    EDIT: I lied! I used what Droidmyme said here: http://forums.androidcentral.com/opt...ml#post1722431
    Post #30 by JerryScript. Sorry!

    You have the files on the SD card already?

    I used this to fix my bootloop issue: http://forums.androidcentral.com/lg-...-2518-6-a.html

    See "How to Instal" there.

    Also, when I was running the commands in windows one of them wouldn't work, so I kept going and it all turned out OK... but that was me and I don't know enough about ADB to say you should do that... but when I used ADB to get that recovery, I just had to type all the commands even though it said it wasn't working

    Go back and reread JerryScripts post that I pasted a few posts up. It basically walks you through the correct sequence. Jerry is one of the premiere devs, the stuff he posts is golden.

    Tips:

    Reread Jerrys post that I pasted.
    Make sure you are entering commands from the correct directory. Are you in the /platform-tools directory?
    First you boot into recovery, then plug your phone in, then type adb shell, then when connected, you type exit to exit the special prompt and return to the normal prompt. Enter the commands from the normal prompt.

    Rename all your files to a.img, b.bin, c.zip, etc, ie one letter followed by the correct file extension. By renaming the files it will speed up things alot. Also, in the command prompt, pressing the up arrow will scroll through commands u typed for even faster results.

    After you adb push the files to SD, THEN you run adb remount secondn Also note that even after the files are on the SD card, they must be installed. Again, Jerrys post explains this.

    Good luck!

    I have tried and tried and now I give up.
    Entered everything as I saw it shown to the letter.
    I get remount failed: Unknown error: 0

    This is the message I get when I type "adb devices"
    c:\SDK\platform-tools>adb devices
    List of devices attached
    A00000312250FD recovery


    c:\SDK\platform-tools>

    I've noticed that after I type in the path, for example: adb push c:\flash_image/sdcard/flash_image,( where C is the root drive of my laptop and is where all 4 files are kept), it scrolls the entire list of commands, every time I enter the completed line. Is this normal? And does any of this help or bfings me that much closer.
    NOTE: If this is important, I copied all the files from my SD to laptop prior, including backups.
    Can I just copy the 4 recovery files to the SD via the laptop and run them from adb shell?. I can only do this if the SD card is my media card slot.

    Yeah, so I just don't have the saavy. I sure I can find someone local who
    can do this for me for a price. Maybe learn something.

    I'm sooo new at this it reaks. so how do I got about thanking everyones continued help?

    Thanks again and again all

    Do not know if you get everything figured out or not, but one of the ways to keep things simple is the place everything it the same directory that adb is located that way you do not have to enter a long command.

    You type something like this for flashing a recovery or pushing a file.

    Example with recovery.img renamed to a.img
    Code:
    adb push a.img /sdcard/
    There is a space between "a.img" and /sdcard/

    If you install the SDK Platform-Tools then you have fastboot installed as well, and maybe an easier way for you to flash a recovery

    with the recovery.img in the directory as adb renamed to a.img
    Code:
    adb reboot-bootlaoder
    
    fastboot flash recovery a.img
    
    fastboot reboot
    Now if you do not have a rom install it well reboot back into bootloader, just pull the battery put the battery back in and hold the "Home," "Volume Dowwn," and "Play buttons until you see the "LG" logo and let go. You should now be booted in recovery.

    It Worked!!!!! HOORAY!. I now have my phone back and sucessfully rooted
    to IHO. WiFi keeps disconnecting, phone works, haven't tried GPS yet.
    Found my mistakes I made and had this done in 3 minutes
    no fooling. It was soooo easy after I discovered what I was doing wrong.

    Thank you Thank you Thank you. I would not be overjoyed right now if not for
    ALL YOU PEOPLE. I have attached a thumbnail of my "new" screen.
    You people are simply the best!!

    Hi Reelburner,

    Glad you got your phone working again. Any chance you could post what mistake I made in giving you advice so that, in the future, I will know?

    What was it that worked successfully? Thanks

    Greetings,

    No mistake on your part what-so-ever. My mistake was not putting the needed files
    in ADB directory. I think I was so frustrated with all of it, that when I realized
    I was getting a new phone the "pressure" was off.
    It was at that point I could look at all the instructions, and it suddenly became
    very clear. Another of my mistakes was failure to put a "space" before the backslash.
    ie: adb push recover.img /sdcard/ the right way
    Here is the way I was typing in.

    adb push recover.img/sdcard/ I left out the "space" between the g and backslash.

    I then followed with: adb reboot-bootloader, followed by
    fastboot flash recovery recover.img followed by
    fastboot reboot
    And that was it. The phone booted into CyanogenMod-7.2.0-RC1.

    That's my story. If there is ANYTHING I learned is. Be patient. I found that to be the
    most important. And If I could fix my phone with the help of all you great people
    then anyone can.

    Thank you so much,

    Reelburner.

    I like it. The soft skin fits like a glove with all the soft buttons in the right
    place. Flaps that cover the charging port and headset plug.
    Only drawback(if it's really one) is no access to SD card without removing the entire case.
    Other than that, I highly recommend it. Got mine off Amazon for $27.

    That same thing just happened to me.. the new BACKside borked my recovery AND the rom itself wasn't working right.. I was able to boot it but barely anything was working. No lockscreen, no home key functions, even my network had issues. Thank god I had an apk of Flash Image GUI, that saved my phone from becoming a full brick. I installed a different recovery and just about everything was fine, BUT now none of my backups work at all. I have no idea how things got this bad, I have to start completely from scratch now.. I'm not too happy about it because I just swapped back to my OV last night to use as my daily phone again.

    BACKside was always an amazing rom, up until last night at least. I'm sorry Jerry, I don't mean to complain but I never had this issue before.

    Reelburner, the root of your Sd Card just means you put a file on the card itself without it being in a named folder such as Downloads or some other folder. Having a file manager helps to move it around where you need it. I have EStrongs File Explorer. All my loads go to my download folder. I have to manually move them wherever I need them. For me, I just choose the file, (long-press it), give it the command to move, then
    hit the icon for the SD Card at the top to choose the SD Card itself as the folder of choice, and it will move. The SD Card is the "root folder" of
    all the info on it. Just in case nobody answered your question about the Root of your SD Card.

    Not to go off topic, but I have one too and the headphone flap fell off within a week. Not sure if my situation is rare or if this is a reoccurring issue. Just a heads up.

    Thanks for the heads-up. I've had mine for about 2 months now and
    flap is ok, however, I haven't used it much either.
