I agree with u, it's pointless.
It happened the same to me, i installed nova rom, by flashing it trough nova recovery. Before of that i did a backup (in recovery) just in case. Then i saw that i dont like nova rom, so i tried to restore the backup of stock rom from the recovery... the procedure went well, but after reboot i was stucked on the black screen for 30 mins, so i plugged to pc, runned the lg software updater and did an emergency recovery. i unbricked it finally!
btw i dont understand why "restore" option in the recovery didnt work well at all, i did a wipe data before flashing the backup... waht i did wrong?

Flash v10a, root with gingerbreak, install cwm, reboot in cwm recovery, restore...
Beware!!! Nova uses ext4 and stock firmware uses ext3.
That's all.
Cheers.

so if i have nova rom and i want to restore a backup of original v10c stock, i have to install the basic cmw and do the restore form there? btw stock cmw reads the backups made by nova cmw?

With Nova ROM that has eRecovery (emergency recovery) you have a time frame during the boot that if you press a key, you'll reboot into recovery. Without it, such as in stock ROM, you will have to flash a new firmware.

But, keypress comprobation occurs before typical bootloop?

I hope you have inserted it as soon as possible in boot procedure.

Depends on the cause of bootloop.
The keypress check happens about 3-4 seconds after turning it on. It's almost after the shell starts.

Like I said in the eRecovery thread, it will work for 90% of the cases such as an application causing bootloop or a faulty framework or init script.

I recompiled the framework and broke it, no recovery with Buttons!

That stopped me from rewriting the gps code (there are bugs...)

Should the recovery have worked?

If you had NOVA, you should be able to boot into recovery pressing some key repeatedly...

BTW, if you recompile the framework-res.apk, it will probably not boot...
