Which is the best recovery?
« on: September 24, 2012, 06:23:52 PM »
Fwiw, I will be S-on for at least a little while longer, but will eventually get my stomach up for it.

If you are s-on, you will want 4ext if you want to experiment with roms.
If you are S-off or just want Harmonia or stock, the TWRP2 and 4ext are both good. I prefer TWRP2 though.

Thanks, Leslie!  I probably won't experiment too much, and will stick with stock or Harmonia (when I get brave enough to flash a rom).  So Twrp2 it is!

 ::)Dumb question:  On the TeamWin site, when it says choose your device, we are Evo 3D, right?

One more semi-related question (and I really appreciate this)--is there a trick to booting into the bootloader?  I have  managed to get in there twice and do not know what I am doing differently that the other times, when it just boots the phone.

If you have a rom installed, try the power button, hit restart then select bootloader.

If you are stock:
Shut down, pull the battery, reinsert battery, hold vol down, and press power until you see the Lg logo.  If you don't hold both until the logo, it will boot normal. You can do this without pulling the battery by selecting restart and when the soft button lights go off, that is when you need to hold vol down and the power button. Doing it before the lights go out will result in a screen shot.

I think I was letting go of the volume button too soon.  I have several lovely screenshots ;D.

But, I was able to get back in there to flash superuser, which is all I really wanted  :)

Raynoldsk, another trick you can try to get into bootloader is use Rom Toolbox.
Download it from Google Play, then go into Rom Management section.  Choose
Management sub-category, then Reboot Recovery. If you have TWRP recovery,
choose Reboot, then a button will appear allowing your Evo to reboot into bootloader.
Easy! Rom Toolbox Pro is worth the money, but free is good. No more squeezing buttons!
