After 2 months of work this is finally booting on our device @AnBro-ID can confirm it (he is the first to try it, congratz). No device atm so I am just getting thread ready for when my device will come from warranty.
And oh I forgot after this is bug free. We are getting Philz Touch also for the party to be complete. Please support me. Thanks to you all. You are amazing.

CWM Touch Recovery 6.0.5.1 for LG L7_2

1. Presentation
What is ClockworkMod? ClockworkMod Recovery (CWM) is a replacement recovery option for Android devices, made by Koushik "Koush" Dutta.

2. Changelog

Code:
04-01-2015 - Initial release (closed alpha)
bugs that are mentioned in bug section
Code:
04-01-2015 - Beta 1
fixed all bugs in the bug section but adb sideload
sometimes device will reset or screen will flash during start-up if you reboot to system (from recovery)
Code:
12-01-2015 - Release 1
fixed adb sideload
forced another offset in memory to solve the rebooting problem (screen might flash a little though)

3. Known bugs
- image is inverted (need to do an 180 degree rotation in the framebuffer) fixed, HELL YEAH!
- image jumps when you press buttons (need to investigate when I get my device)
- external_sd is not mounted
- image too small (not really a bug but I need a device to see what can I do)
- adb is not working
- power button is recognized as home button -> well not a bug this is how buttons are mapped, at first I understood power button is switched but no, both buttons can cofirm, all good.
- adb sideload not working
Not really bugs (I will still mention them for you to not worry):
I had to force offsets into memory for recovery to boot and also I had to mess with the framebuffer bitmap (the thing that makes image into memory). If you reboot from recovery to system or if you boot in recovery etc you might experience screen flashing for some seconds. Ignore it. It won't do harm or do any damage just some offsets that are conflicting (for example recovery with kernel).


The bugs written up are the ones that I am aware of. Do not say that the things mentioned are not working since I will just ignore it (I know it and will fix when I have time/motivation and so on, if it can be fixed).
Feel free and I encourage you to report bugs that I am not aware of. Please give a detailed view of the bug. Not just not working and similar things. Post screens/logs all taht can be useful.

Project state: STABLE

If you have any bugs submit them here, in this forum. And don't say hey it's not working or things like that. Give a detailed review of the problem.

I worked a lot for this recovery to work. If you can afford to get me a coffee I would love it. Donation link is at my avatar ^.^. Thanks. Also remember to hit the Thanks button please.


Get my coffee right here, right now <3:

1. Flashing instruction
Method 1:
*OUTDATED: Just open the zip from last version and copy that recovery.img if you want to use this.
Copy the "recovery.img" from download to the root of the SD card.

Code:
1. With terminal emulator or using adb do this:
2. adb shell
3. su
4. dd if=/storage/external_SD/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p17
Method 2:
Download the version you like (the zip) and flash it in any recovery.

On Windows your device might get detected as Unknown. You need to set the driver from device manager manually. Choose LGE adb interface ot adb interface.

2. Thanks

You can take this as #3 reserved if I need more space. @AnBro-ID is helping me to debug. He is really patient. Fixing bug after bug. You will get the first release when I am managing to rotate the screen. That is the only graphical problem that's let. I fixed the jumping when touching the screen. Have a great night.
EDIT: it will take a while because I need to reverse buffer (for reversed image). Managed to make code for it but only half of screen is inverted... Bleah.

Well yeah just to keep you updated. After a hell of a work (around 20 builds) and a lot of testing by @maxx_hr and @AnBro-ID (which I want to thank a lot) screen is finally rotated (well it was in 5 pieces and 2 colors) haha. That is fixed now. Release is very soon. Buy me the cookies. <3.

Yeah but cookies are good with coffee. Just joking. Serious things.
Screen fixed (fully working), same for swipe

External_sd and extended partition on sd are now mounting.
All issues but the power recognized as menu key are working (the bugs I know of). Don't say heey that's not working it will piss me off. I know and I need to create a custom recovery keymapping. In a later release. Tomorrow evening this is going with full power here haha. Join the party !!! Good night for now.

Read the title my friend. Of course it will work (but sure better ask, way safer<3). This should work on any L7_2 model. That means p710 p712 p715 etc.

I don't know why would you need a fix root option. TWRP itself has an option to fix root on your phone. TWRP is way better than normal CWM imo. I don't have a device I didn't test myself. If the source code (so CWM source) has this option it should be present. Try it yourself.
