Recovery: how to get it back
Ok so If you been following my mass posting today, I was realy excited to FINALLy get root.
I dl ics official from lg. tried to get root. tried tried. eror error.
eveyr one was telling me unbrick.
but..I dont have a brick soft or hard (wait for it......thats what she said!!!)
so yeah im the kid that plaed with fire drank the gas and stuck my finger in the electrical socket..true stories.
So yeah no root, then got root.
but I wanted the whole v2oc hip thing root delio so...more nightmares.....beer..more beer.
SUccess!!!! see here
SO then i was like...ooo ooo i needs recovery .... so i read cwm wont work... I read that now it does...I read oh noes my recovery borked!!
what to do what to do....FUGGIT! IDOODIT!
I has no more recoveries
wtf AND i paid for the premium rom manager. Kinda upset at Koush because I couldnt get a refund. fkn bs. 15 min rule. lame
any ways whatever Ill consider it a donation.
so yeah get cwm rom manager, installed recovery once...got FC message about messages fcing. k...... :unamused:
I tried installing and re-installing cwm recovery several times.
I tried saving/making a backup
same thing, got the "miss you long time" you're borked good luck loser love LG" screen
SO yeah recovery corrupted, imo, anyways. got the whole securities mesage fast boot fast boot. been a long time wth ever that message was.
I figure wth. Im gonna fix it or brick it. <----im trade marking that btw
so the whole unbvricking thing... just soo much work. maybe not for some but I have two braincells keep in mind, and they usually misfire
I was going to try to flash a recovery img but.....
I was like hey. WHy not...start over.
SO I started over reflashed the v18f kdz.
I has recovery back, confirmed via factory reset. This time no securities text just push power to recovery...BAM
I believe the key for me was: i DID NOT attempt a factory reset. I merely rebooted the phone set it up properly and ran the v18f.
I suspect that having a corrupted recovery img and doing a factory reset will likely brick your phone, best to just update right away.
DOnt be afraid its easier than the unbrick method( i may brick my phone one of these days on purpose just to try it out)
so now Im back to hear again this time... I wont be flashing cwm...on v20c again
Im goona get stupid and do it again and try to put a recovery on v18f.
wish me luck and hope this helps.
If you are looking for a valid 18f .exe see here again
All credits go to all the devs who worked on these methods. scripts and all those helping with hosting files.Im just good at fixing stuff.
Im not a dev Im just funny once in a whle. Or so my shrink tells me.
this will make over four times I have now rooted, unrooted, reflashed old firm ware, rooted flashed current v20c and rooted.
none of which ever used the unbrick.
