WTF Paul. I just bought and installed '2X Recovery Boot' and wanted to boot in Recovery and nothing more happens. The Phone does not boot anymore. The LG-Logo pops up for a second and then black screen. Help?

It is not possible to boot in recovery.

Dangerous piece of software. The phone seems completely broken.

/EDiT: I rescued my phone with NVFlash Stock ROM. Everything fine again. But I will never use your App. Any chance to get my money back?

I'm guessing you didn't install clockwork recovery first did you?

Also Rom Manager has been updated and supports the LG Optimus 2X and T-Mobile G2X :)

Guys, quick help for a moron (me) please.

I'm rooted, running FR12 (until I get my new SD), I have recovery installed and get to it easily either through Paul's recovery app or ROM Manager - both of which I bought.

Thing is I can't get to it from the phone when it's off - I hold down power and vol. down and it sticks on "S/W Upgrade Please wait while upgrading" and I have to remove the battery to reboot normally.

As I say - moron - could someone help said moron figure out what he's doing wrong please?

Thx :)

Hold down the buttons and don't release them until recovery appears...

i just installed rom manager and it says i should install clockworkmod recovery. Even though i already installed it with the instructions from this post. If i install it will this replace the clockworkmod and settings /backup etc?

ok thanks for the fast response, but what version of clockworkmod recovery will then be installed? I mean, isnt this version in this thread the best for this phone? And why can't rommanager check that it's already installed

ROM Manager's version of CMR is newer than the version in this thread (3.0.2.8 vs 3.0.1.4) so it advises you to update. ROM Manager's version has working USB mounting as well, which is handy.

I would think Paul would update this thread in the event that there is a newer version available of CWM. Or at least I would hope as much.

I assume Paul would update the thread when there is a newer version of his CWR, whereas the ROM Manager one is the 'official' build, which isn't anything to do with him really.

And I got CWM already, and Rom Manager claims I dont have CWM installed >_<. Botched anyone?

If memory serves, ROM Manager can be dopey. If it isn't used to flash the recovery, it assumes you're still stock.

Thats not really clever :mellow:. But I guess I should try to install CWM through that then and hope things wont badword up.

The thing is, that when Paul rooted the O2X there wasn't any recovery out for this device. So he "hacked" a version of CWR to work with O2X until an official one came out. Now that the official is out, this version is obsolete. Simple as that. :mellow:

edit: Also that's why ROM Manager doesn't recognise the Paul's hacked recovery as a Clockwork one...

It's only obsolete when there's a standalone alternative.

Is there a flashable version of CWM for the O2x other than Paul's? Link please.

For those of us that think ROM Manager sucks big time.

No. You flash this and then replace it with Rom Manager's :mellow:

Exactly, so it's not obsolete.

I did not mean that its useless. But those of us that have already rooted our phones, should really upgrade to the latest CWR cause of features mentioned in an earlier post. :mellow:

I said obsolete version not obsolete method of rooting :o
