If it doesn't work, you're probably not rooted correctly...?

It doesn't work for me either, but with other root apps I get SU request.
Can I fix that someway, like unroot/reroot, or doesn't that make any difference?

EDIT: Worked, I just had to reboot.
I'm so very sorry for wasting your time with noob questions!

EDIT #2: It rebooted into Android system recovery (I think it's the one that came with the device), and it says "Formatting MISC:..." at the bottom. I can't confirm anything, just scroll between the options. What have I done, and what should I do to get it to work?

EDIT #3: Here's what I see:

"Android system recovery <3e>

Android system recovery utility

reboot system now
apply sdcard:update.zip
wipe data/factory reset
wipe cache partition

"(some rows)"

Formatting MISC:..."

EDIT #4: After a force reboot (taking battery out and putting it in), the phone works again! And it didn't factory reset but looked just like it did when I ran the app.
Oh happy day :D

I just had to do a reboot after installing the app. Don't know why.

Hi,

Just bought and installed the app too on my rooted LG2x and seem to have the same problem here...after starting the app, the installing logo appears on screen for ages. When pressing the home button it suddenly seems to pop into CWM. However, you can't select any option and you can only reboot by pulling out the battery. Any ideas?

Sounds like you booted to stock recovery!

Have you installed clockworkmod yet?

Hey Paul, does the 2x work in a different way in entering the recovery mode by an app than other devices?
On the ZTE Blade I used the app "Quick Boot" and could enter recovery and bootloader mode with it very easy. When I now want to enter recovery mode on the 2x with this app the only thing that happens is a normal reboot.

So I'm just curious if there's a difference

Okay,

I hesitated to report this but now I'm convinced and other users have the same issue:

When we soft boot using this app /sdcard/_ExternalSD/ is NOT mounted as /sdcard/, indeed it's not mounted at all and can't be mounted or accessed via adb - :D

With a hard boot (keys) /sdcard/ is mounted as expected. If the card is removed and reinserted whilst in recovery it can then be mounted.

I can reproduce this reliably.

What can I provide to help diagnose?

It's never mounted automatically on recovery boot, only when you try to read it from recovery, or do 'adb shell mount /sdcard'. That's normal.

I should have been clearer.

/sdcard/ can not and will not mount if I reboot with your app. I have to power off from recovery then start recovery with the key combo.

Error is:

E:Can't mount /sdcard

or

Error mounting /sdcard!

Depending on what I ask recovery to do.

Can not mount through recovery console or adb in recovery after a soft boot.

Any time I do a hard boot I do not get this. I don't need to touch the sdcard to make it accessible, I just need to hard boot and it mounts as expected.

I'm not the only one... any thoughts?

May have an empty ext partition first... I'll check and report back.
