Project Open Cannibal presents...
Cannibal Open Touch v2.1 for LG Optimus V





About Cannibal Open Touch:
Cannibal Open Touch is the next generation of custom recoveries. Jam-packed with cool and useful features, it can handle just about anything you can throw at it.

Main Features:
1. Support for both Edify and Amend scripting (flash all ROMS!)
2. Theme support
3. Get out of recovery boot loops
4. Touch screen button controls!
5. Compatibility with Xionia nandroid backups (if on LG Optimus device)
6. GooManager support!
7. Internal e2fsprogs for size
8. Backported “retouch binaries” patch for ICS/JB compatibility
9. Advanced Backup
10. Delete old backups!
11. Persistent settings
12. User-defined backup locations!
13. ADB Sideload
14. Touchscreen calibration

Why the name Cannibal Open Touch?
Because we can. The name also embodies everything that Cannibal Open Touch is. It is no longer just a variant of ClockworkMod Recovery, it is it's own recovery by itself. Combining features from ClockworkMod 5, Team UtterChaos' Sony Xperia recovery, AmonRa 3.0.6, Xionia CWMA and a heaping helping of our own special enhancements it is truly revolutionary.

What to do when an error occurs:
DO NOT simply say "xxxx doesn't work" as that is highly unhelpful and will probably be ignored. Instead, post the recovery log! To grab a log when an error occurs, simply open a terminal (or command prompt if on Windows), "cd" to an easily accessible directory and execute:

Code:
adb pull /tmp/recovery.log

Paste the log as an attachment (don't paste the text inside, as it can be quite lengthy), or paste it on pastebin.com.

WARNING!
If you are upgrading from a previous version of Cannibal Open Touch you must delete the settings.ini file located in the cotrecovery folder on your sdcard!

Flashing instructions:
1. Follow these instructions (external link) for installing flash_image if you haven't already done so.
2. Make sure USB Debugging is ON and that you have ADB access
3. Download the Cannibal Open Touch image from the download link below.
4. Place the recovery image on your SD Card.
5. Fire up an ADB shell
6. Make sure you are in a root shell. If you are not, execute the "su" command now.
7. Execute "flash_image recovery /path/to/recovery.img" (replace /path/to/recovery.img with the ACTUAL path to the recovery image)
8. Reboot to recovery mode
9. PROFIT!

Already have a custom recovery?
1. Download the ZIP installer from the download link below
2. Reboot to recovery
3. Flash the ZIP installer as you would a ROM or Kernel (that is, flash it from recovery)
4. PROFIT!

Big plus having a zip. This will benifit those that manage to get themselves into a recovery loop, but don't what to revert to Xionia (which really only works best with Froyo ROMs).

I like the look of this recovery and I was wondering how I'd go about porting it. I have the One V and I noticed you have a topic on your forums for the One V but nothing posted on it.
Cheers, worldindo1.

One V has some bugs and is still in the beta section of the POC Forums, we actually need some new testers noone has responded to my recent inquiries regarding the last bug report.

Apologies for my lateness in responding. I would be more than willing to test it out if you want. If you shoot me a copy I could test it and get back to you on how everything works.

This has only been tested on the Optimus V, I would be very careful about checking the board settings for the VM670 vs the Vortex before trying to flash this recovery. I honestly don't know if it will work without looking into the Vortex a bit.
there's a little-known trick, you can retain your existing recovery while testing another, but you'll lose your ROM boot.
You can
Code:
flash_image boot recovery.img
since they're the same type of compressed image. I've done it on the V and had others do it on the S. When you use the recovery to flash a ROM it overwrites the boot-img recovery you just installed. It's a regular power on to get into the boot-img version of a recovery, and you can use the key combo to boot into your working recovery after testing it.
Beware, though. Incompatible kernels may mess up your device good. I deliberately flashed a p500 kernel to my V, it locked up nastily, and it wouldn't power on without rebooting for hours after reflashing a usable kernel. for days, I couldn't overclock, and it always seemed weaker after that.
Can this be flashed using the Flash Image GUI app by joeykrim? Thanks.
flash image gui works fine on the optimus v, and shouldn't have any issues with this recovery.

    I believe people have used it yes but I can't confirm this myself.
