HOWTO install


- If you installed the CWM reocvery by @Dexter_nlb, remember to press install recovery again, so the changes take effect.
- Get your o4x root'd,
- Download the APK file and install it
- after installation reboot mobile once (if you do not, the app might fail installing recovery)
- start the LG 4X Recovery app
- press - Install recovery - grant superuser access when prompted
--- Three option lines in the app: 1st Install Recovery, 2nd Reboot Into Recovery, 3rd Normal Reboot
- wait for success OK, if it fails, something is wrong or SU is not properly installed or denied su access. you should set permissions to granted for this app
- after successfull installation, you can press boot recovery and boot into the twrp recovery and make your backups or install custom roms


Quote:

Warning && Issue

- DO NOT use the "Formate Date" function in wipe menu, this will make a soft brick, if U did this by mistake, U can reboot into stock recovery and run the "wipe date/cache" function to solve the soft brick.

- This recovery only supported the "standard update.zip" packages, this means some update.zip package which used none standard( EG: some cwm backup style update.zip for 4X HD atm) won't work on this recovery.

- For some reasons this recovery not support cwm bakcup package, only support TWRP backup package style(This is the TWRP issue). But, anyway, I'll make a patch for this later to support cwm backup package.

Here's sceen shot

It doesn't support your P880G. Only the International P880.

Just do a factory reset. And you should be good.

Yes, of course...anyways, is there any development about this recovery? What about the possibility of reading/storing backups and roms from/to external sd? It would be a great feature!
