Hello guys ... Looking around the web i can not find anything about a recovery or a custom kernel for Lg optimus chic ... I own it for 3 months, and I'm really satisfied, but a recovery to install above would make me really happy. Someone could create one? It should not be difficult, it is almost the same as the LG optimus one ... Thanks in advance ... Oh I forgot, you could create a section for the LG Optimus Chic (like the optimus one)? This smartphone is spreading very fast, and he deserves a custom recovery of his ownThank you very much. Oh and sorry for my bad English :S

Greetings from Italy Andreoid.

Test Version: Note I do not have this phone and was asked to add this to my recovery lineup.

Directions:


Download this recovery and unzip it and copy to root of sdcard

recovery-alessi-gnm.img.zip
password is gnmtest

download flash_image.zip and unzip and copy to root of sdcard

flash_image.zip

commands to flash recovery

from adb shell or terminal (requires root # prompt)
Code:
su

mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock1 /system

cat /sdcard/flash_image > /system/bin/flash_image

chmod 0755 /system/bin/flash_image

mv /system/etc/install-recovery.sh /system/etc/install-recovery.sh.bak (notice this file install-recovery.sh may not be on your device if it gives an error or file not found move on)

flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-alessi-gnm.img

sync
then power off device and boot holding most likely vol-dn + home + menu ??? This needs to be verified for alessi device. You may be able to boot recovery by adb reboot recovery also. Edit confirmed to boot via VOL UP + VOL DOWN + POWER by ptesmoke on e720 (bell)

Key mapping is Vol-up & Vol-down move selection up & down. Back is backup a menu. Menu key is to select.

This is a test version I'll do full release soon after bugs (if any) are worked out.
The message E: bad boot message is normal disregard it.

For debugging use the move recovery-log to sd option under other and please upload it with feedback.

Overclock kernel assuming everything works:
signed_alessi_oc.zip

Ptesmoke noted that Oc kernel wasn't very stable for him above 748mhz. Ill need some other feedback to make sure it wasnt just a low spec processor die he had.

password is keepout

Special Thanks:
Amon_Ra for his original source code
Ptesmoke for testing

Basic description of recovery features and troubleshooting can be found here in one of my other posts. http://androidforums.com/getitnowmar...optimus-m.html

easiest way to contact me is @getitnowmarket on twitter
