[Tool] LG Ultimate 2 Advanced Recovery Tool
« on: August 07, 2015, 02:41:08 pm »
Recovery Tool for the LG Ultimate 2

Only use this on the LG Ultimate 2!!!

This is a Windows batch file that can install a recovery of your choice, root your phone, reboot into recovery and much more. It comes with the main LG L41C recoveries in it. I was very bored one day so I made this for myself. Then I thought it might be a good idea to let others use it. You will need to install adb drivers and fastboot drivers before using this tool. They are included in the zip file. The tool is quite simple and is really easy to use. If cats could read they could use it.



How to install:

Download the zip file here: http://www.mediafire.com/download/hrykg3k0j5pcjei/L41C-Advanced-Recovery-Tools.zip
Extract everything to a place where you can find it (Like your desktop)
Install the ADB drivers: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=24052804347803384
Install the LG Mobile drivers
On your phone make sure USB debugging is enabled
Open the RecoveryTool.bat file

Changelog:
  • Added non-touch CWM and touch CWM
  • Add TWRP 2.8.6.0/TWRP v2
  • Added PhilZ Touch Recovery
  • Recovery Tool will install TowelRoot for you to make it easy to root
  • Decreased File Size

Hi - I'm a noobie just getting started but I'm running adb from Debian 8 (Linux.)

I download the zip file,  extracted the contents and used grep to find the lines with adb in the BAT file- the list is enclosed below.

I pushed all the Android image files to the phone and used  a shell on the phone and md5 to check their checksum - which agrees checksums of images extracted from the zip file Debian - but I don't know if what I down in zip file is correct - probably is.

However, there was no myrecovery.img in the zip file. Where do I find myrecovery.img file?

What's with "Other downloads" - do I need stuff from those URL's - is that where the myrecovery.img?

Assuming I find the myrecovery.img, in what order should I execute the enclosed adb commands - ignoring the adb push commands?

And do I need to download anything from Google Play.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Also, I'm assuming LCL42C is the LG Ultimate 2.

[snip]


I got it. I installed the apks/{su.apk,tr.apk} files and TWRP.img from L41C-Advanced-Recovery-Tools.zip, Flashify from Google Play and I was able to install G3-ROM-Port-2.3.zip.

Very nice. It corrected a number of problems but still have a couple of lingering problems  plus a random reboot - which was there before I started. But now I have root access - I can poke around - learn a little about the Android.

You can't run batch file on any other OS than Windows... that's why it wasn't working. You opened the source code, not the batch file.  Those commands don't work without the rest of the file. You will need a windows machine to use the program, not linux.

I have an L41C that just began to act weird. It will not allow the wifi to turn on, and will bootloop when starting up after a reset. May be a hardware issue but I'm willing to reinstall the rom to make sure it is hardware, not software.

Is it possible to get a copy of the L41C Advanced Recovery Tools zip file? Mediafire says it is a dangerous file and will not allow me to download it.

Ah MediaFire, always a pain in the butt.

I've uploaded the same file to Google Drive and it *should* be fine there: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1MSBhmA7G_0bBFMtCOGej2O5vTse1gC3o
