just read this topic and i am absolute confused about the clockwork etc is this a must for the phone or not? what do you get if you do all this? i think i would damage the phone if i did all this

Your phone wont break if you follow correctly

clockwork recovery is a special bootscreen which has a menu

You can perform backups of your phone and restore

also you can install custom roms, update.zip, and more

Its good to have because its a safety feature for your phone

Recovery is essential for a downgrade as far as I can tell. I went back to 2.1 after my first attempt at 2.2 and it worked a charm. I am still on the second run on 2.2.1 and it looks incomparably better so if its all still ok in a week or so I might just burn my bridges and delete the 2.1 backup and the Ext2 partition. Space is getting a bit tight on my 8 Gb card.

Glad to hear you got it back though.... :(

Ok I've the Russian fastboot ROM installed on the phone and in the process and this is as far as I get

Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

© Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.


C:\android-sdk-windows\tools>fastboot.exe flash recovery C:\misc.img 

(and I've tried the other recovery.img also)

< waiting for device >

I've tried that plugging in and out of different USB drives as suggested on earlier.

I've a feeling it's something to do with the drivers, could someone please post a link to the suitable drivers for this?

That is all ok, but someone cannot ,and some one can revert to stock LG roms flashed via KDZ tool.

Until that is solved 2.2.1 is not option for me.

Do I understand it correctly: if I want to use the clockwork mod with another ROM, say the Romanian one, I just have to reflash that ROM after installing the Clockwork Mod, right? Because I did just that and the phone got stuck on the LG boot image, and it wouldn't go into Recovery mode either. I managed to restore it to pre-brick status, but I still want to use another ROM... Or have I misunderstood the procedure?

look the rom has to have clockwork compatability so all roms which are compatible are custom made to do that. your romanian rom is not a fastboot rom or clockwork rom. you can make the romanian rom have clockwork compatibility but that involves extracting and rebuilding the kdz
