i am a newb and i cannot figure out how to get recovery and run it. tried to do it through the command prompt but always says cannot find location. it is a zip file so maybe thats it but how do i convert it.
I took unrooted my phone today because I was going to excange it for a new one because of a loose headphone jack but it turns out it was my headphones. I used SMupdater and it went fine. now when I try ot root again I get a "can't open cache/recovery/command" error in recovery and it wont let me select any of the options by hitting the camera button. idk what to do
note before attempting any of this that rooting does void your warranty. I also am not reponsible for any damage that is done to your phone but am more than willing to help you solve a problem in IRC. See my signature on how to get on #ally IRC channel. I do not actually use the Clockwork Recovery (i use drellisdees).
Guide to flashing roms on the LG Ally with screenshots. First off. Make sure your phone is rooted. If your phone is not rooted see the following options.
I hit the top button. Flash Clockworkmod recovery or what ever it said. I then backed up my Current ROM. I then downloaded Cyanogen v6.0.0 cr2. It downloaded and rebooted my phone. But It went to a screen with a Triangle w/ exclamation and a phone under it. I then hit the up vol button and camera, and now I'm at the Android system recovery page and I don't know what to do next. These are my options reboot system now apply sdcard:update.zip wipe data/factory rest wipe cache partition wipe base band data. I did click to backup current ROM and wipe data and cache.
ok, so I put the PB31IMG file on my sdcard, and the dinc_ota. I changed dinc_ota to update. (I did not name the file update.zip.zip) I powered down, I entered bootloader, and it loaded the PB31IMG and whatever. then I hit volume down and selected recovery. this brought me to clockwork recovery. I noticed the isntructions said to boot into STOCK recovery. well, I like a dummy ignored that and tried to apply the update.zip thru clockwork.
This is what I got:
So, is this because I tried doing it through clockwork recovery? is it because I didn't apply the first OTA update we got? what does that mean exactly anyways? is it saying I need to install the leaked froyo ROM, and then update the radio? How do I boot into stock recovery and not clockworks recovery? does this count as applying the update.zip once, meening if I do it again I'll brick my phone? should I sell this thing and get a samsung flip phone because I'm too stupid to own a Dinc?
First off let me say that I was wrong about this issue. Its not an issue with Easy root it is just something built into android. So I apologize to anyone I argued this subject with but specifically Patch. Its also not an issue with rom manager. This applys to users that after flashing a custom recovery they can boot into it once but the next time you try to boot into recovery it has reverted to stock.
This mostly happens to users of easy root or users that use my guide for rooting using Linux
So for the fix.
Download this file and place it in the root of your sd card. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7223192/install-recovery.sh
Download Terminal Emulator from the market. The one by the dev Jack Palevich. Open it and type the following commands.
su mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system dd if=/sdcard/install-recovery.sh of=/system/etc/install-recovery.sh chmod 550 /system/etc/install-recovery.sh sync
after that just flash the custom recovery of your choice and you should be good to go.
I tested this on my phone and another user tested it for me and it worked for both of us. If anyone has an issue let me know. This issue is so sporadic that its hard to have people test the fix.
I've managed to create a TOUCH Recovery Carliv v2.2 based on CWM V 188.8.131.52 recovery for the Zen Ultrafone 701HD.....
Link for the TOUCH Recovery Carliv v2.2 based on CWM V 184.108.40.206 recovery for the Zen Ultrafone 701HD.....
Easiest method to have this recovery for a rooted phone is below.
1.Install mobile uncle tools from Play Store.
2. Place the recovery.img provided in root of SD card.( Rename the recovery file as simply RECOVERY.IMG)
3. open mobile uncle tools and flash the recovery.
The other ways may be followed from this link of Dextrorototrix
Full credit for this Recovery goes to Yuweng who created the auto tool CWM Magic Create [URL] found in this link [URL], and Carliv who created the recovery that made it so easy to port to new devices, Napster who shared his touch source with Carliv, and of course the original creator of CWM - Kouch. It took many hours of hard work to get us to where we are today.
Just rooted yesterday, and everything was running great... untill I installed Simply Stunning v4.3. I went to make a back up and found that I cannot access my recovery, it was stuck at the M. Now Rom Manager says that if this happens, flash a different recovery then flash clockwork back. Here is the catch- When I try to flash a different recovery I get this, "An error occurred while flashing your recovery."
As if punk.kaos didn't already have his hands full with his Froyo updates, he started working on this: [RECOVERY-BETA] Eris Multiboot recovery hack - xda-developers Apparently, its a (very early) multi-boot for the Eris...very interesting and very cool. Got other questions? Visit his thread (above) over on XDA...
I'm long term world traveler who uses my galaxy s2 phone for everything. After leaving a country I move the photos from my phone to Facebook and a usb key. Unfortunately my phone rebooted while I was moving photos to my external usb memory key and seems to have corrupted it in the process as it says it is now blank. It contains approximately 20 GB of files so didn't have enough time to delete them they must still be there but the directory or something damaged. I have plugged the usb stick into a laptop which also said it was empty or corrupted. recovery app I can load on my Galaxy S2 (Android device).
I have accidently overwritten some photos on my Google Nexus 7 and would love to get them back. I`ve tried various recovery programs on Windows but none of them can read my tablet in MTP mode and I can`t connect it in mass storage mode. I have read that one way is to make a VHD image via RAW of the hard drive onto the pc, where the recovery programs can access it. The trouble is I I think have to root the tablet which i don`t really want to do
1) Is there a way of creating this file without rooting? 2) Any recovery program that uses MTP? 3) If I really HAVE to root, whats the least destructive way of doing this?

I have an activity which is showing a progress bar while a service is downloading data from an API. I want that when i press Home and relaunch my program the activity and which is not the first activity called but it is in the stack was recovered in order to continue showing the progress. I have read about the cycle of life of activities but i don't find a clear solution. The same thing happens If i am in the activity which is showing the progress bar and i press a button that takes me to another activity, when i go back, can i recover the old activity instead launch one new.
I recently rooted my droid and then unrooted for the froyo OTA update. I found a file with took me back to stock recovery. this file wont let me apply the update.zip because it is android recovery 2e. Does anyone know where I can get android recovery 3e?
after too many pattern attempts I need factory reset (disabled usb tethering setting and wifi off). When I get to android system recovery I can't do anything. I'm trying volume up/down buttons but I'm still on "reboot system now"
When I push volume down button, nothing happens:
and when I push volume up button, just this screen:
I'm using a Tecno T3 running android 2.3.5, and using a qualcomm msm7627a chipset, I've tried rooting it using one click methods but to no avail. so I came across a thread that says If I flash a cwm recovery, I can use universal gingerbread root to root the phone. I Dont know how to port cwm to my device, so I decided to use the cwm for the karbonn a7+ which uses the same chipset. will it work?
I can't update any applications in the Market now because I accidentally deleted my android keystore. Does anyone know how I could get it back? I've tried running a recovery program, but for whatever reason it's not showing up.
I am trying to root my phone, but I can't get the system recovery to come up. I'm following the Universal Eris Root for Dummies thread here and it said to power off and then power up while pressing the volume up key. This does not launch the system recovery for me, just boots up like normal.
I just purchased a cheap 9.7" Android Tablet, Model AM09-D2. It came with ICS 4.0.4, has 16Gb ram and a dual core Cortex A9 CPU. I would like to know how I go about backing this thing up. It is rooted and has absolutely no blootwear installed. Is it possible to flash a custom recovery. Like TWRP or CWM to save a image of the rom. I have already did a data and app backup with Mybackup Pro. Now I would like to backup the Rom and maybe do dump. Is it possible and if so how? Not really that comfortable with ADB/fastboot, truthfully I don't understand what the difference is. I already have drivers setup for Samsung Galaxy Nexus on my Win 8 notebook. Will installing ADB/fastboot screw things up?
