    Talking very easy steps to custom recovery and cm7

    Hi im Quin "Q" qblk, i currently own a LG Opitmus C Lw690 from cricket communications among the many phones iv been able to root and find working custom roms with iv now found the tools and the most simplest way to root and rom this little beauty everything works fine so far its been three dayz of me downloading texting talking agressively and it has not frozen nore reset or boot loop the only thing i have noticed is the battery life but not a big change at all , so here it is and thanks to the creators of this rom, custom recovery.img and gapps. that i found " Author: PlayfulGod
    Builders: PlayfulGod and BobZhome" as well as whoever and where ever i found the flash image gui.apk "very important to getting this job done right.

    ALTHOUGH I HAVE DONE THIS TO MY LG OPITMUS C WITH NO PROBLEM WHAT SO EVER IT IS NOT MY FAULT IF YOU BRICK YOUR PHONE BUT THESE STEPS IV PUT TOGETHER IS THE MOST BASIC AND EASIEST WAY TO INSTALL THE RECOVERY AND CM7-....

    YOU WILL NEED:
    Flash image recoveryGUI.apk " i yahoo/goggle searched for it"
    recovery.img
    CM-7.1.0-LG-LW690-10182011-signed
    gapps-gg-20110613-signed "these can be found at:
    http://playfuldroidz.com/wiki/index.php?title=CM74OC[/URL


    ]
    YOU MIGHT NEED:
    Cricket-mms-fix_signed "also can be found at the link above
    step 1. copy cm7, gapps, flashimageGUI.apk, and recovery img to the root of your sd card "not in any folders"

    step 2. install flashimageGUI.apk on your phone select recovery and hit start make sure you read the apps instructions as well

    step 3. after your phone reboots from the flash power off again than hold valum down "not up" home and the power button at the same time this will bring you into your recovery.

    step 4. now go to back up and restore and make a back up of your stuff, when its done wipe data, cache, and dalvik.

    step 5. install cm7 from your sd card allow it to do its thing it took maybe like 2 1/2 3 minutes on my phone before it was done than after reboot another few minutes dont panic lol.

    step 6. now that its up and running hold power button and reboot into recovery go to your sdcard to gapps and install them... enjoy
    "note" i do have copies of all the files needed and even an cwm stock backup but i didnt post them just yet i dont know all the rules and or laws against sharing so if someone could let me know id be glad to help make it that much easier.



    2-6-2012.... here is a link to my nand backup of stock rooted Optimus C.

    make sure you wipe all that needs to be wiped before restoring this backup, also make sure you unzip the zip file and save the backup folder in your clockwork mod backup folder
    on your SD card......

    oc.stock.rooted.zip - 4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download




    let me know if it works or if you have any issues with it i do not assume any responsibility if you mess your phone up !!!!!!
