*** WARNING: This is a risky procedure that could damage your phone - PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK ***


Hello everyone,

I've succesfully ported the CyanogenMod Clockworkmod recovery for Optimus Chic Some details:

-> Url flash_image: MEGAUPLOAD

-- ADB
-- KNOW HOW TO CHECK THE MD5SUM OF A FILE -> HowToMD5SUM - Guide for Windows and Linux

The Recovery can be installed as follow:
  • Download recovery.img from the link above
  • IMPORTANT: Check MD5SUM - This is to ensure that during the download / copy the file is not corrupted
  • Copy recovery.img to the SD
  • download Flash_image, unzip and copy it to SD

Now you must install the recovery through ADB (the commands must be entered one by one in the shell, waiting a couple of seconds between one and another.

$ adb remount
$ adb shell
# cat /sdcard/flash_image> /system/bin/flash_image
# chmod 755 /system/bin/flash_image
# mv /system/etc/ /system/etc/
# flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery.img
# reboot recovery
Note: the command
mv /system/etc/ /system/etc/
could give you an error "File not found", ignore it.

If all goes well, the menu with a cheerful hat ClockworkMod background confirms that the boot recovery occurred in CW.
Also ignore the error below: "E: bad boot message" is not a real error.

The recovery functionality is simple:

- The volume keys to scroll
- The back button to go back
- The power button to select a menu item.

If you have problems, you can select Advanced / Error Reporting. This will generate a log into SD (recovery.log). You can use it to understand the problem.
