After many said it couldn't be done... here we are! How to Install 0. Prerequisites You will need: - ADB and fastboot (http://dottech.org/downloads/adb_fas...ther_tools.zip) - LG's ADB drivers, available here. Optionally, you will need: - Root. (Use SuperOneClick root) Note: Root is not required for flashing via fastboot, but may be required for recovering should anything go wrong! 1. Back up your old recovery! ROOT REQUIRED Open up a shell on your device by using adb shell or running your terminal emulator. If you see a \$ prompt, type Code: Select Code su to get root. Otherwise if you see a # prompt you are ready to proceed. Type Code: Select Code dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p17 of=/sdcard/stock-recovery.img to write the stock recovery to your sd card. This will take about 8 MB of space. 2. Prepare the phone for future awesomeness First, we must get the device into fastboot mode. In order to do this you must be able to have ADB access to the device. ADB is accessible when you are on the charging screen and when the phone is fully booted. You can enable ADB (debugging) access in the Application settings to access the adb service while your phone is fully booted. Get the phone to the charging screen or enable ADB in the OS. Now, plug in the phone and verify you have adb access from your computer: Code: Select Code adb devices If your phone is not showing up, go into device manager and make sure the LG ADB drivers are properly installed. Once you have ADB access, run this command on your computer: Code: Select Code adb reboot bootloader This brings the device into fastboot mode. What does fastboot mode look like? Well, it looks like a whole lot of nothing, mainly. If your phone boots up at this point and hangs out at the LG logo for a while, you're in fastboot mode. To verify it's in fastboot mode, run Code: Select Code fastboot devices it should show something like Code: Select Code C:\androidsdk\platform-tools\> fastboot devices ? fastboot If you see this, you are ready to flash! 3. Flash! To flash, first run Code: Select Code fastboot erase recovery This erases the recovery partition and ensures that everything is zeroed out so nothing gets in the way. Now run Code: Select Code fastboot flash recovery C:\Path\to\downloaded\lgc800-recovery-cwm-chui101.img protip: Tab autocompletes. It saves a lot of key strokes if you have a lot of long folder names like I do! It should almost instantaneously transfer the recovery image, and pause just a few seconds more to write the CWM recovery image. When done, you can type Code: Select Code fastboot reboot to reboot the phone back into the main OS. 4. Reboot into recovery! To reboot into recovery: - Issue an adb reboot recovery from your computer wherever you have ADB access (charging screen, stock recovery, or the main Android environment if you have it enabled there.) - Or, from the phone's powered off state, hold down VOL DOWN, F, and A, and press the power button. Once the LG logo appears, you can release the power button. Once the LG logo disappears and reappears, release all the the buttons. Welcome to CWM recovery! You can take a nandroid backup, mount USB storage, and flash zips from here! Hopefully this opens the door to CM9 and other custom ROMs on this device! Buttons are: MENU or VOL+ = up HOME or VOL- = down GENIUS or ENTER = select BACK or DEL = back Note: If anything goes wrong, you can return to stock recovery by using Code: Select Code dd if=/sdcard/stock-recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p17 , or by using the CWM flashable zip available below. Note: Above command REQUIRES ROOT. Downloads It is recommended that you check the MD5 sum of your downloads!

We may be able to flash the e510 builds. More to come... REPLY

The MyTouch Q has the code name "Univa Q" which is its only connection really to the e510 (Univa). That and its screen size. The system board seems to be more related to the e739. REPLY
 dammitman 6th July 2012, 12:45 AM Junior Member Thanks Meter 5 Posts: 18 Join Date: May 2006 Thanks chui101 for getting the ball rolling. Good work. Is there a link to the kernel source for the LGE C800? I would certainly be interested in compiling a kernel and CM7 or even CM9. I have all the proprietary files needed, just need to dig around in the source and I'll upload to my github repo. REPLY

I'm trying to get CM9 to build and I think I'm way over my head with the kernel config! REPLY

 dammitman 6th July 2012, 01:20 AM Junior Member Thanks Meter 5 Posts: 18 Join Date: May 2006 Thanks for the link, I haven't seen the Open Source page for LGE before. If you have time or a repo I would certainly like to help and get the proprietary and device libs setup for a build. Shouldn't be too much work for the initial compile. REPLY

 medicjunKie 6th July 2012, 01:22 AM Senior Member Thanks Meter 270 Posts: 1,043 Join Date: Mar 2012 The C800 and the E739 are basically the same, except the C800 has a slide out keyboard. Maybe you can flash the E739 builds of CM7/9.
