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 have been able to flash velocity 0.2 and then decided to upgrade to 0.3. When I did, I looked into flashing the turbo kernel for ally. Followed the instructions as said and now I have the choice to boot to recovery or if I let the boot go all the way through it gets stuck after the verizon logo. When I try to flash a different ROM, I hit install from SD card and everytime, no matter which ROM I pick, it starts updating but says opening file, then like 2 more lines saying opening, then it stops the install.
so to start off let me go into detail with my personal experience with the Rom Manager and ClockworkMod applying Velocity .2: After getting my phone up and running with the new Velocity .2 (Don't forget to tell Trident how awesome he is) I decided to get my girlfriends Ally going with it as well. Her Ally had Drellisdee's 1.2.2 Recovery already installed so I tried to apply the ROM via that, I was halted by a signature verification error. No big deal, I just flashed it with ClockWorkMod on my own Ally so I downloaded the RomManager to go about using the other Recovery.
After installing the ROM Manager I tried to flash the recovery, it requested SU Permissions which I allowed then it force closed. I reopened the program then flashed the recovery again with no errors. I then downloaded the Velocity .2 ROM from the manager and attempted to apply. First thing I noticed is the manager did not give me an option to clear Dalvik Cache. I tried to proceed anyway. When the phone rebooted it got stuck on the LG Logo, scary, very scary. I pulled the battery, held SEND MENU END, and again, got stuck at the LG Logo. Pulled the battery again, powered on normally and it booted up (not to recovery though) so I ended up flashing the ClockWork Recovery manually...........
Drellisdee has a post on here that makes it easy just download his recovery and do this. just do steps 4 5 6 and 7 over again. its that easy, but make sure you at least have a copy of the 1.2.2 in both the root of the SD card and the tools folder. and MAKE SURE YOU RENAME FROM 1.13 to 1.2.2
I rooted my android device with froyo yesterday. I installed the rom manager and its associated programs. Then I downloaded and installed the Cyanogen 6.0 mod. I was able to install the mod yesterday but I did not wipe my data clean which made the startup screen loop. I restored my phone, and now I can not reinstall the Cyanogen 6.0 mod. I go into the rom manager and select download, I select to wipe my data and to backup the system, then I restart in the Clock Work Recovery Mod. Once there I can not find the Cyanogen 6.0 to flash. I have been trying to get this to work for the past 24 hours!
I'm currently running Froyo after running the RUU: RUU_Bravo_Froyo_HTC_WWE_2.09.405.8_Radio_32.43.00. 32U_5.09.00.20_release_140022_signed.exe as per teppic74's thread over here: Froyo RUU update available
My desire has HBOOT 083 - which I know can be problematic when flashing. My question is: Is the unrEVOked v3.21 method of getting the new recovery menu the best/easiest/most reliable way to enable me to flash new roms on my phone? Are there any caveats? Anything I should be aware of beforehand? According to teppic74's thread, this version of Froyo cannot be rooted at the moment, which I'm not bothered about anyway. But, it would be nice to try some of those lovely new roms.
I'm feeling the itch to go beyond the standard settings in Android and get into rooting. I'm following along with a lot of the developments here, but I often feel like I'm missing a lot of the background knowledge and vocabulary (what is recovery, how does one access it, what are all these different programs - nandroid, adb, etc.) to have a really strong grasp of what's going on here.
Now, if this were my computer, I'd just hop right in and start following along as best I can and mess things up along the way, no biggie, I have multiple computers and I'm competent to fix them.
I don't have a landline though, so I want to be a little more prepared before I accidentally brick my link to the outside world. Is there a good "tinkering with Android primer" out there that any of you would recommend?
Also, how easy is it to get back from whence I came on the Ally? I read the thread on unrooting, and I honestly didn't understand a lot of it, so I'm just looking for a "not gonna happen" or "it'll be easy when you finally understand."
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."
I'm trying to get rid of clockwork recovery mode so that I can recieve the OTA. I've tried the process from the how to unroot by downgrading but when I boot into HBOOT it just goes to the regular screen. My phone is stock except for superuser permissions. I have the stock 1.00.03.04.06 radio. So how do I go about removing clockwork recovery mode so I can update via OTA.
I have tried 3 different pcs and 1 iMac to install Clockwork Recovery using Unrevoked2. With each pc it says there is a communication failure after rebooting the phone, and with my iMac it just sits at waiting for reboot. Is there any alternative way to install the recovery because I really want to install some custom roms
So I've been rooted for about 2 weeks now on my new incredible and I have not had any problems so this is just a curiosity question. There is a zip on the base of my SD card named update.zip. Now i think I narrowed it down to the flash clockwork recovery in Rom manager and I was wondering if this file should be there at all times or is i the latest clockwork that keeps getting placed when I activate that flash that doesn't need to be there?
i formatted all partitions installed bbv0.4 again. now i cant get clockworkmod recovery to work. i have reflashed and it still hangs up on the white M screen everytime. i tried to hold x and power down and it did the same thing! i cant download anything from rom manager or backup my phone!
I downloaded one of chevys kernel an I was going to install this kernel hoping for better battery life. Before I did, I tried booting into recovery and all I got was the M symbol. I then tried flashing alternate recovery(sprecovery) and then went to boot into recovery an that still didn't work. Does anyone have any suggestions? I don't know if its related to that download of the kernel or what. But this is very frustrating knowing I don't have recovery.
Can you flash clockwork recovery(from Rom manger) onto your phone if you have the official 2.2, rooted. I want to make sure that the recovery image is compatible with froyo.BTW I rooted 2.2(FRG01B) with easyroot, i have not installed any roms, themes, kernel etc. and i have busy box. Please reply, i am new at this.
I KNOW my phones rooted, ive applied the update and ive been doing root things for quite awhile. However, when I go into rom manager, download a rom, and install it, it brings me to the normal recovery menu, the blue one with only 4 options. I reapplied the update.zip and still nothing. When I try to reflash the clockwork it says... An error occured when attempting to run priveleged permissions
I've tried the Droid-X Clockwork Recovery, Deodexed Rooted, Froyo'd method a few times now and each time when I reboot after restore my phone just sits on the Motorola screen. I've installed the file into a folder in clockworkmod/backup Did a backup with recovery and restore with the folder I made
Getting a little more experienced loading up different ROMS after rooting and have a pretty basic question about recovery methods. Rooted my phone with DroidMod....then loaded up their Droidmod version 1. wanted to try out Koush's new Cyanogenmod 188.8.131.52, so I installed ROM Manager with Clockwork Recovery, then loaded up 184.108.40.206. later went to a customized version of Koush's mod that loaded via Recovery 0.99.3b (sprecovery)
My question is, if I load a ROM via sprecovery, then I cannot use Clockwork or Droidmod, or vice versa....each is an alternative that can't be used at the same time....correct? also if I do want to switch back and forth, I guess I need to reboot into that particular method?
Very simple can we use Koushik's ROM Manager / Clockwork recovery rom to restore past Nandroids created using SPRecovery .0.99.3b? Even if I boot right into the clockwork ROM and perform a restore from the ROM itself like we do with SPRecovery. Or do I have to push SPRecovery back in order to restore my archived ROM's and other dev's ROMs that use SPRecovery.. like Pete, AdamZ, Chevy, etc. I'm sure it's been answered but I also can't be the only one who's unclear.
It would appear my phone does not want to reboot into clockwork recovery. Each time I use the bootstrapper to reboot into the recovery mode, it just sits on the M logo indefinitely. Any thoughts, or am I sol until the update is released that is to fix this?
I have successfully rooted my Dinc 2.2 using unREVoked but recovery mode just gives me a blank screen with white bars down the sides. The buttons and trackpad do not have any effect. Only way I can get out of the blank screen is to pull the battery. I have ROM manager premium and it says Clockwork 220.127.116.11 is there and the clockwork folder is on the sdcard. I've tried re-flashing Clockwork several times from ROM manager. Everything else works fine.
I just got a new Incredible with the sLCD display. Pretty nice phone, got it all rooted and flashed with unrevoked and noticed the clockwork recovery didn't give a display. So I whent ahead and flashed amonRA instead. Everythings working OK, but whenever I try and flash cyanogen or any roms similar I get stuck at the 1st boot screen (HTC Incredible) I have gotten a few roms to install but none of the ones I wanted to try unforunatly. Is this perhaps being due to the lack of support for the slcd screen? Does anyone have cyanogen installed on their SLCD Droid Incred?
