    Check if you have any space left on your phone, if not, clear some. Otherwise, reboot and try again.

    hahahaha.....I tried this like three times until I reallized Recovery you have as the recommend is the one I already have. Was wounding why it looked the same.

    Edit: Nevermind this is not the recovery that I have; for some reason CWM Recovery are buggy on my OV.

    Question...to avoid a mistake.

    I have several ".img" files so want to be sure I rename and use the correct file.


    • recovery-clockwork-3.0.0.6-ov-20110220.img ( this is the one I flashed yesterday )
    • xionia_cema_12518.6.img


    Also inside /cloclworkmod/backup are three dated folders each of which contain a file of the same name.


    • .android_secure.img


    I also made two backups prior to flashing away from stock ROM. All SD card content are also copied to PC as a backup.

    Inside the install folder /CM7 I have the two zip files.

    Backside-IHO-VM670-1122201.zip
    gapps-gb-20110828.zip
    and gingerbreak-v1-20.apk which I installed to root the phone.
    An extra copy of "recovery-clockwork....img" is also stored in this folder.

    If there is a better MOD than the one I found I am all ears !

    Okay...now what?

    I used terminal emulator to flash bobzhome as prescribed above. Seemed to go fine (my first time with emulator, you know.) I typed in to reboot to recovery write away and it did so without any problems. However, recovery identified itself as cwm-based recovery v4.0.1.5. Is that what I just flashed? Seems like the one I had in place all along. I'm using the Harmonia 2.03 (happily) by the way.

    That is what it should say, however there is the IHO version and Bobzhome IHO version. While the same, the latter is the only one that supports newer screens.

    If that is what you flashed and you are getting into recovery, then you are in good shape.

    Oh, good. You were right -- it couldn't have been any easier. Great guide, to state the obvious. Thanks again.

    I have a rooted new screen OV. I read that VM670NH_recovery.img is a preferred recovery. I flashed recovery-clockwork-3.0.2.4-ov.img. I've been reading and reading and must have determined the one I flashed is the one I needed in prep for installing CM7.2RC0-VM670-BobZHome-013012.
    Should I install the VM670NH_recovery.img before attempting the rom flash? What is the difference between the two?
    Thanks for any help.

    Well the vm670 one is the only one that shows up on the newer phones. That's basically the only difference, you don't need to flash it, IF the one you currently have is working. Just power down and boot into recovery by holding down volume down, back and power until the lg logo pops up and disappears. If nothing shows up then you will have to flash the other recovery. If it doesn't show up don't panic, just pull the battery and reboot normally.

    Thanks, anthonycr. I have the 2.2.2 with hitachi screen. The image I flashed does show up in recovery (I have the backup/restore option). I was just concerned that it might not run the rom flash properly. I've worked on the Pandigital novel and have a rooted/alt-rom'd Toshiba Thrive, but this is my first Android phone. Also, I've learned that every device is different--even the same device with different firmware such as the Optimus V 2.2.1 and 2.2.2. I don't want to screw it up, but I'm trying to get a bluetooth keyboard to connect so want to try a gingerbread rom with HID support.
    This [https://sites.google.com/site/bobzhomeroms/vm670] is where I got the recovery. I notice is says vm670( I know, that's the phone) in the web address but gives the recovery-clockwork... title that I actually flashed. I think I'd better contact BobZHome. I also notice an update to the rom as of 3/3/12.
    Thanks for your response. I really appreciate it.

    EDIT: FWIW, I flashed the newer recovery then flashed the bobzhome rom+gapps. All seems to be working well, especially the Rii bluetooth keyboard that I was trying to connect with.

    Don't have the cp or flash_image binaries and mv won't move the flash_image binary across file systems. Tried a file manager app to move the file but it doesn't have permission to move to /system/bin. Any ideas how I can get cp on my phone so I can flash the recovery?

    Edit: was able to use ES File Explorer to move the file over.

    Very odd that mv was present but not cp. Has anyone else run into this before?

    Hey guys,

    Bumping this. I have an OV I need reverted to 100% stock. I got the ROM stock by using Nandroid backup, but I was having problems flashing the stock recovery in terminal. So I tried using Jimmy's Flash Image GUI. It worked - sorta.

    Now I have this setup: stock ROM, stock recovery flashed but not working 100%, root access, and busybox installed. Here's the issue I'm having: I open terminal and try to run PicaSticks method. First line works ok, but on the 2nd line I get "remount not found."

    Ok, so I try the simplified method of JerryScript moving flash_image from /sdcard directly into /system/bin. When I run chmod 755 /system/bin/flash_image it returns "flash_image not found."

    When I use a file manager to try and copy flash_image directly to /system/bin, it says "permission denied."

    What gives? Are the Android gremlins cockblocking me here for no reason? Lol

    You probably have a new phone and used a recovery that is incompatible.

    Use the Nandroid backup, root using Gingerbreak, flash recovery, unroot using gingerbreak. But Idk about the Factory Reset. I flashed the update.zip from Virgin Mobile, and Idk if you want to flash the radio.img


    Good luck.

    You have to run flash_image from the root directory. It WON'T work from /sdcard

    No, just open terminal, and type
    su
    cd /
    flash_image recovery /your/file/here.img

    I flashed VM670NH recovery to my phone. I had to copy flash_image via terminal into system/bin
    When I flashed recovery there were no errors. But when I tried to run reboot_recovery I got reboot_recovery not found.

    So I'm guessing that command is not on my phone.
    What is going on here and how do I fix this?

    I thought all of those tools were in busybox? Maybe it failed to install somehow? What's your setup, so you know what you're working with here.

    Actually I did type reboot_recovery.
    I was just very tired when I wrote my post.
    I figured it out.It was busybox. I got busybox reinstalled and everything is working now.
    Thanks everyone.

    I'm just about ready to root & rom an OV, and I think I know what I'm doing (uh-oh!). I've read & reread LeslieAnn's Reference Guide & Harmonia 2 posts and the posts they link to (and as many of the replies as I could before my eyes glazed over). I still have some questions that relate to this thread.

    Is there a terminal emulator installed as part of the GingerBreak process, or do I need to grab one from the Play store? (And if it's the latter, is there one you recommend?)

    Some people here seem to prefer other methods over this one. Pros/cons, since a lot of these posts are old and there may be newer tools?
