Well, hallo there!

It's been a while since I've posted a release thread on XDA... I've been lurking in the shadows (and on IRC) for quite some time.

Here, I present to you a teaser of things to come:

ClockworkMod Recovery (non-touch) 6.0.1.5 for the Sprint Optimus G.

Quote:

What is this?
This is a "recovery" for your phone, it allows you to install custom ROMs, back up your phone, fix it when it breaks, and much more.

This specific version is "ClockworkMod", which was created by the CyanogenMod team and Koush.
There are many recovery versions out there, I have picked ClockworkMod because it is very easy to compile and debug.
I will compile other recoveries as time permits.

Quote:

Where can I get it?

Please go here to download it: http://downloads.codefi.re/thecubed/...nt/recoveries/

Note: this is a "tethered" build of CWM, as you can not flash it. You must use fastboot to boot the image every time you wish to enter recovery.
This is due to the locked bootloader on this device.

This will not allow you to install a custom ROM just yet, and please don't ask for custom ROM dates yet. I'm working on it...

READ THE INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE DOING ANYTHING!

This is *not* safe, and should *not* be done by anyone unsure of what they are doing.
I will post links once I have ironed out bugs, but I WILL NOT SUPPORT anyone using it to modify their phone.

Please don't use this if you don't know how to LGNPST your phone back from the dead, should you accidentally kill it.

Instructions

Check back here in a few hours, I'll have something done by then

The goods!

Special thanks to user Shelnutt2 for helping me test this on the Sprint variant.
Here's a pic of it running on his Optimus G:


And, here's a video for extra proof


Luckily the video quality isn't potato, but the audio sure is. My explanation is that my HTC Vivid doesn't like me. An engineer's explanation would be that I was speaking softly, as it was 1:30AM at the time of recording, and the phone merely decided that my meek volume was purely background noise... at least, I think that's what an engineer would say, as I haven't graduated yet.

SPECIAL THANKS!
Here's my favorite section of an XDA post: the "special thanks to" section.
Without the help of these awesome people, I would have nothing of interest to say, and would just be a random guy with a phone.
Seriously, these guys are awesome.

Here's the list (in no special order, and by IRC name):

  • Shelnutt2
  • sextape
  • xboxfanj
  • jonasl
  • kmdm
  • synergy
  • DeamonFish
  • chachin
  • ..and Zanzibar (because why not?!)

If I've forgotten anyone, please let me know-- I want to make sure everyone who had a hand in this gets a shout-out.

Please, support these awesome people if you get a chance, or drop by the IRC channel and say hi

Quote:

How can I contact you?
Need to get a hold of me, or anybody else? Come on IRC -- just go to http://webchat.freenode.net and use #lg-optimus-g as the channel name. Pick a nice nickname and say Hi

I'm IOMonster on IRC, and if I'm around, just say my name and I'll probably say hi back.

Alright everyone, hope you enjoy

fastboot is the same as with the AT&T varient, aka oem unlock does nothing.

Thumbs up Great work
This is a great start. I can not thank you enough. Like someone mentioned in the petition thread, even if you are not planning to buy this device, please sign the petition for lg to unlock the phone. We need to get a culture of unlocked bootloaders going. Again thanks for the good work
