Flashing custom recovery (CWM) from LGMDP




I cannot provide any further support as I don't have this device with me now.


FLASHING CUSTOM RECOVERY (CWM) FROM LGMDP

FOR LG P500 / OPTIMUS ONE ONLY
This method works for all unrooted p500/optimus one and p500/optimus one devices stuck in emergency mode. 

DO THIS ON YOUR OWN RISK, I WILL HAVE NO LIABILITY IF YOU BRICK YOUR PHONE !!!

download clockwork recovery (5.0.2.0): http://adf.ly/5v3tT or http://adf.ly/Ebkjk

1. disable lg modem ( in device manager->modems)
2. now connect your phone to pc. (If phone not booting into rom connect in emergency mode, turn off phone and press (volup+return+power) buttons simultaneously)
3. start lgdmp 
4. click "select port"
Phone will be automatically detected press "connect"
(close the pop up window of image select generally you will get it on connect of lgmdp)
5. backup nv for safety (tools->nv backup) {ignore this step when phone connected in emergency mode, i did ignore this and found no risk of loosing nv}
6. extract downloaded recovery into a new folder
7. select the extracted recovery folder as "image folder or select image" in lgmdp 
(it gives some errors as other files are not present, donot worry as we are only flashing recovery those 2 files are enough, files "recovery" and "partiton" will be automatically checked and others gray out)
8. Close the selection window and press "download" (in main window of lgmdp)

DONOT DISCONNECT YOUR MOBILE UNTILL IT SHOWS DOWNLOAD COMPLETE AT BOTTOM
it shows in middle trying to connect to phone etc. donot touch the phone it will be automatically connect everytime.

AFTER DOWNLOAD COMPLETE your device should boot into recovery 
1. switch off your device
2. pressing (home+vol down+power) buttons simultaneously should boot into recovery.

now install whichever rom you want and enjoy 

Tested on O1 having baseband v10 and v20 also, from normal boot and emergency mode as well and it works.

    1. download a custom or stockrom
      in zip format from xda developers ,
      copy it in SD card and flash custom
      recovery. Then wipe data, cache,system.
      And flash the downloaded rom from recovery

  30. Initially could not get my computer to recognize my LG-P500h when connecting the usb cable, found a link to help. Press return button+volume UP button (while holding those buttons) connect the phone to computer with usb cable, PC then detects the phone.

    I followed the steps to the T, but after step 8 and download is complete, my phone auto reboots... shows LG logo, then goes back to yellow screen emergency mode.
    Phone still does not switch off with power button, disconnected battery and started phone holding home button+volume dwn button+pwr button.
    I am still where I started on the yellow emergency mode screen.
    ANY THOUGHTS????
