We need to know more info, like what happened to cause you to lose recovery, what happens when you try etc. I am going to go out on a limb and guess you used rom manager to install cwm recovery and when you boot into it it shows only black.

Yea thts what happened


if you can boot into android, go into the rooting/roms/hacks section, and download xionia and flash_image from that thread.

then:
place both files on the ROOT of your sd card. first level, not in folders.

then, using terminal emulator or adb, and from a root shell, type:

# mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock5 /system
# cat /sdcard/flash_image > /system/bin/flash_image
# chmod 755 /system/bin/flash_image
# mv /system/etc/install-recovery.sh /system/etc/install-recovery.sh.bak
# mount -o remount,ro -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock5 /system
# flash_image recovery /sdcard/xionia_cwma_12518.6.img
# reboot recovery

dont type the # signs. this just signifies root access.

you might get an error on the
# mv /system/etc/install-recovery.sh /system/etc/install-recovery.sh.bak
line. thats ok, and to be expected.

this should get you stock recovery. the thread you need is:
http://forums.androidcentral.com/lg...covery-xionia-clockwork-cwma-v1-2518-6-a.html

that thread contains the files.

good luck.


ps if you cant boot into android, this WILL NOT work.
