Earlier we covered a guide on installing ClockworkMod recovery on the LG Thrill 4G, but that process involved the use of ADB, and for some, that is just downright tedious and complicated. Thanks to XDA-Developers forum member rdannar, users can now get ClockworkMod recovery up and running on their device in no time at all without the use of ADB, or for that matter, a PC. Ok you will need the PC to download the recovery and copy it onto the root of your internal SD card, but that’s about it. However, if you can, you can always download the recovery straight from the phone as well. Up to you.
Disclaimer: Please follow this guide at your own risk. AddictiveTips will not be liable if your device gets damaged or bricked during the process.
- A rooted LG Thrill 4G. See our guide on rooting the LG Thrill 4G.
- Terminal Emulator installed from the market.
- To begin, download the recovery.img file from the link above and copy it to the root of your SD card.
- Run the Terminal Emulator on your phone and enter the following commands (hitting enter after every command):
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p6 of=/sdcard/mmcblk0p6.backup bs=4096
dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p6 bs=4096
dd if=/sdcard/_ExternalSD/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p6 bs=4096
That is it, try rebooting into recovery to see if the recovery is functioning as it should. For updates and queries, head over to the forum thread at XDA-Developers.
