Team Hydro presents....
Cannibal Open Touch v2.0.2 for LG Optimus M


About Cannibal Open Touch
Cannibal Open Touch is the next generation of custom recoveries. Jam-packed with cool and useful features, it can handle just about anything you can throw at it. Main Features: 1) Support for both Edify and Amend scripting (flash all ROMS!) 2) Theme support 3) Get out of recovery boot loops 4) Touch screen button controls! 5) Compatibility with Xionia nandroid backups (if on LG Optimus device) 6) GooManager support! 7) Internal e2fsprogs for size 8) Backported ?retouch binaries? patch for ICS/JB compatibility 9) Advanced Backup 10) Delete old backups! 11) Persistent settings 12) User-defined backups! Why the name Cannibal Open Touch? Because we can. The name also embodies everything that Cannibal Open Touch is. It is no longer just a variant of ClockworkMod Recovery, it is it's own recovery by itself. Combining features from ClockworkMod 5, Team UtterChaos' Sony Xperia recovery, AmonRa 3.0.6, Xionia CWMA and a bunch of our own special enhancements it is truly revolutionary.

[INFO]What to do when an error occurs:
DO NOT simply say "xxxx doesn't work" as that is very very unhelpful and will probably be ignored. Instead, post the recovery log! To grab a log when an error occurs, simply open a terminal (or command prompt if on Windows), "cd" to an easily accessible directory and execute:
Code:
adb pull /tmp/recovery.log
Paste the log as an attachment (don't paste the text inside, as it can be very long).[/INFO]
Flashing Instructions
1) Make sure USB Debugging is ON and that you have ADB access 2) Download the Cannibal Open Touch image 3) Place the recovery image on your SD Card. 4) Fire up an ADB shell 5) Make sure you are in a root shell. If you are not, execute the "su" command now. 6) Execute "flash_image recovery /path/to/recovery.img" (replace /path/to/recovery.img with the ACTUAL path to the recovery image) 6a) If you get a "command not found" error with the above command, STOP! Download flash_image (mirror), extract flash_image from the ZIP that you just downloaded (and copy it to the top level of your sd card, and follow the first three commands in the Xionia Recovery instructions. Once you have flash_image installed, do step 6 again. 7) Reboot to recovery mode 8) PROFIT!

Already have a custom recovery?
1) Download the ZIP installer from the downloads below 2) Reboot to recovery 3) Flash the ZIP installer as you would a ROM or Kernel (that is, flash it from recovery) 4) PROFIT!

This is a great step forward for the Optimus M. Thank you. Have you given any thought to the Optumus M+ (LG MS695)? I still have my two OM's but my children are using them now for their alarm clocks/MP3 players, etc. My wife and I have now purchased, and are using, the OM+ for our daily phones and I'd love to have a touch recovery. We do have CWM-based Recovery 5.5.0.4 for the OM+.

Re: [RECOVERY] Cannibal Open Touch v2.0.1 (latest update: 08/08/2

Well apparently there's another bug.... seems we fixed user assigned backup paths and broke the others, incidentally I know why but I'm still wondering how neither of us noticed again...

As a work around you will want to assign your backup paths for now by creating a file .userdefinedbackups and pointing it to wherever you want (default would be "sdcard/cotrecovery/backup" without the quotes)

Re: [RECOVERY] Cannibal Open Touch v2.0.1 (latest update: 08/08/2

can we flash this over using the Flash Image GUI?

https://forums.androidcentral.com/e...m.joeykrim.flashimagegui&hl=en&token=VpXt2p9y

just wondering...it certainly would make it easier...


EDIT: I'd like to report that Flash Image GUI does indeed work to flash this over, all you have to do is rename the image file to recovery_cannibal.img and it will flash over...i did get an error about it not being able to find the COT settings

i think i found the easter egg....if you choose "Fix Recovery Bootloop" without having a recovery bootloop it will brick your phone and you'll have to lgpnst it back to stock...



(obviously a joke...sorry if i offend by the first few words)

Rename it to recovery.img and it works fine, no errors (except the one that always shows on the M "E: bad boot recovery" )

No COT settings shows up on the first boot, a default settings file is created at that time.

No it won't....I just tried it and booted up just fine.

EDIT: Wait, Optimus S here. Maybe it's different on the M.

Re: [RECOVERY] Cannibal Open Touch v2.0.2 (latest update: 08/13/2

Would this recovery happen to work on the optimus T by any chance?

I don't have all the T information handy but it's highly unlikely that this image would work; that's not to say that something couldn't be compiled to work...
