I really dislike typing out ADB commands. I'm sure some of you feel the same. This program combines some of the most common tasks we perform with ADB and automates them for you.


Where is Recovery Flasher?
All the features are built into this program. I have decided to expand this program's functionality.


Features Explained

Flash ROM - Place a ROM in the 'ROM' folder renamed rom.zip. Hit enter and the zip will get flashed to your phone automatically

Flash Recovery - Will help you flash a recovery to your phone. For the Optimus V users, it will help you install all the needed drivers as well as obtain root privileges. Optimus T, S, and One phones will be able to flash a recovery.

Wipe dalvik-cache - Self explanatory .

Mount /system r/w - Allows read/write access to /system

Push ROM to SD card - Self explanatory (pushes to root of sd)

Push framework-res.apk - Pushes framework-res.apk to /framework, wipes dalvik-cache, and reboots the phone for you.

Push bootanimation.zip - Will remove boot animation and replace with one of your choice. (removes from /data/local as well as /system/media)

Reboot - Reboot

Reboot into Recovery - Obv.

Recoveries
CWMA v1.2518.4 for V and S
drellisdee's Recovery for T and One (thread with DL link will open automatically. recovery not included)

Recovery Instructions
- Download
- Unzip the folder somewhere (desktop is easy)
- Double click RecoveryFlasher.exe
- Choose 'flash recovery'
- Place your phone in debug mode >setting>applications>development>USB debugging
- Choose what you want to do
- Follow the prompts and hit "any" key when told
- Your phone will reboot into the recovery for you, and from there you can mount your sdcard and transfer a new ROM to flash. Or even easier, use the new "Flash ROM to phone" feature :)

You're responsible for your own actions Mr. Sister

FAQ

-To use an alternate recovery for the V or S, rename the new recovery to vrecovery.img and replace the 'vrecovery.img' included with the new one.
-For the Optimus One, the recovery needs to be named grecovery.img.

Yep. Just put the stock recovery in the folder and rename it vrecovery.img and it will flash it.

Problem Please Help

Hi MMMark111 I have a problem. I used your recovery flasher it worked fine, but the problem is that I accidently had hit the boot-loader, and now every time I shut the power off, and turn it back on it goes into boot-loader and an automatically powers back on and an resets and erases every thing. like I flashed a new Rom and goes to the first time set up screen. I can no longer go into recovery because of this. Please could you help me? Thanks for your patients.

once in recovery you have a selection to use boot-loader, I accidently hit it and now every time I power the phone off and turn it back on, boot-loader runs real quick and then it resets (reboot) its self, like if I had flashed a new Rom and then I have to put in my gmail, apps and every thing else.

My program doesn't have any options that have anything to do with the bootloader. Is this something you did on the phone and not your computer?
