Hello eveyone!
I want to apply a rom on my phone. Zefie's CM7 rom to be exact, unless there's a better rom out there for an Optimus V. But I'm browsing the threads right now and I need a full-proof method on how to custom recover this thing. Some threads just tell you to (backup, flash, recover, etc.) but is there a thread where they actually give you the steps. I'm very tech-savvy but the terms (rooted, e.g) are unfamiliar to me "right now". So can someone please direct me to a thread where everything is specific so I can backup my phone and install the CM7 rom. Please and thank you.

Use the program I wrote here. It's very beginner friendly. Ts have everything you need. I'll be posting an updated version tonight though so you might want to wait.

Use that version man, you literally just hit any button to install the recovery, there is a backup utility in the recovery also. Backup your phone next. I used reds custom stock vm rom as it was the easiest one to use.

Just dl the rom, put the rom folder on your sd card and flash it thru the recovery menu its super easy

About the error message..do I have to wipe the data first? And I tried to do a backup but the recovery image doesn't have a backup function...I tried downloading an alternate recovery image and labeling it as vrecovery.img but it kept loading the same one. I trying to custom recover CM7 or the stock virgin + xil...please help

I did my backup from the recovery I backed up the stock vm rom so if I had a problem I could go back to it then flash my custom rom again

Okay I got the backup to work..but I'm saying? Do you have to wipe the data and clear the cache partion first? Be causes it's saying "e: failed to verify whole file signature"

What rom are you trying to install? Certain runs need that stuff deleted and some don't I used reds stock vm rom and I didn't wipe anything and it worked the first try

I figured it out! Thanks so much! I used the adb shell method to change the custom recovery and flash the rom on it..its pretty easy now! Think I've got the hang of it :)
