[Q] [HELP][LG L5 E610V][CWM] Impossible to boot into CWM

Hi there,

this is my first post bu I have been playing with my LG L5 e610v for long time. I have had installed CyanogenMod 10.1, 10.2 and 11.

This last time, I came back to the stock rom and now is impossible for me to boot into CWM.

I have tried:
  • Installing a KDZ with a rooted stock rom with CWM
  • Copying using adb and dd command many differents CWM images (6.0.28, 6.0.4.7)
  • Using rommanager app

but always the result is the same: I boot to recovery and it gets stuck in the LG logo. I have to switch off and switch on again and the stock ROM starts again, but no way to boot CWM.

I have tried even overwritting emmc_appsboot.img, but no results.

Please, could you help me? I need CWM for installing CyanogenMod again.

try this,extract cwm and copy the image file to your internal sd card,open terminal emulator and type following line

dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p17

than enter

after this type reboot recovery and your phone reboots to it

I really dont understand. copying the img using dd works only 1 time. The second time, If I tried to boot (using key combination or writing reboot recovery in the terminal emulator) it gets stuck again in the LG logo. I have to copy again the image for start CWM again...

Any ideas why this is happening?

After a hundreds of removes and installations, formatting and everything now is working fine. I cannot say what solved the problem, but definitely using terminal emulator was a huge step hehe

thanks!
