Black Quarx ROM

1.get your phone and if its on turn it off. hold power button and camera button until the lg logo goes and screen is black

2.download black system.7z and extract to your desktop

3.and run flash.cmd as administrator then plug in your phone whilst its screen is black.

im sorry but this bit makes no sense to me what so ever. surely you need to point it in the right direction for it to knw where the the files are?

also if someone knows what partition the quarx rom needs to be flashed to through cmd i would love to know. really annoying me now cus i cant find out what it is.

EDIT: dont worry i found the one and its working a treat now.

Ive gotten to step 6, its on a black screen and the usb is plugged in, I have the Recovery.img in C:\Documents and Settings\Karl upon opening terminal i type the code above, and this is the output:

Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

© Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.

C:\Documents and Settings\Karl>fastboot.exe flash recovery C:\recovery.img

'fastboot.exe' is not recognized as an internal or external command,

operable program or batch file.

C:\Documents and Settings\Karl>

What am i doing wrong? Im so confused i NEVER seem to be able to use cmd B)

i found it hard to do it this way to. its easier to download the android sdk and do and put all the files in their. then use cmd to luanch it from that place. i ran into all sorts of problems doing it this way.

if you have a look through the posts on here or on xda-developers there is a guide on their.

Just figgured it out!! At long last B)

Instead of putting "fastboot.exe flash recovery C:\recovery.img" I wrote this:

Command 1.) cd C:\android-sdk-windows

Command 2.) fastboot.exe flash recovery C:\recovery.img.

Again this is ASSUMING you have installed your android sdk kit directly on the cd drive like: C:\android-sdk-windows. You will have to install the files you are asking fastboot.exe to install within the same directory example: C:\recovery.img or it wont work ( I learnt the hard way 6 hours!! )

Now have a custom rom and recovery + im gonna install the new kernle to enpower me with overclocking / Underclocking possibilities :0)

Op can you add my findings please.

Hi I'm glad you figured it out

I spent 2 days figuring it out from many different places that weren't clear and missed out big chunks

But figured it out in the end

Tell others about this topic as it is the first clear tutorial

I get to the stage where you flash the recovery.img file but the device isn't loading the drivers properly while in clockwork recovery mode.

When I check the 'Device Manager' it's only showing up as 'android' under 'Other Devices' and says that no driver is loaded.

I've tried using both the LG USB Modem driver and the Android SDK driver and none of them seem to work.

I'm running Windows 7

Any ideas?

I did it, but it doesn't help. I tried reinstall drivers but it doesn't help too.

I will try to do that on another computer...
