LG Revolution Gets The ClockworkMod Recovery Treatment

The developers over at RootzWiki just aren’t slowing down, and have now released ClockworkMod for the LG Revolution stating that the device is “very open”, paving the way for more people to create and customize to their liking. Maybe we’re seeing CM7 in the near future just like the DROIDX? The stock recovery was a story in and of itself – Being practically inaccessible, it’s a good thing they got this taken care of, before people gave up hope on another device. The recovery is still being worked out and they’re making sure it’s safe for flashing, but if you want to learn more about CWM on the Revolution then be sure to check out the original post on Rootzwiki and see if there’s anything you can do to help.

Cheers Tristan and DRod!

  • I have to show thanks to you just for bailing me out of this type of matter. Because of looking throughout the the net and finding proposals which are not helpful, I assumed my life was well over. Being alive without the strategies to the difficulties you have fixed by means of the short post is a crucial case, and ones which may have in a negative way damaged my career if I had not come across your web site. The capability and kindness in taking care of the whole thing was valuable. I don’t know what I would have done if I had not encountered such a stuff like this. It’s possible to at this time look ahead to my future. Thanks very much for this high quality and results-oriented help. I will not hesitate to endorse your blog post to any individual who needs guide on this issue.

  • I really want to return this phone and wait for the Galaxy S2, but do we even have word on if the S2 is actually coming to Verizon? This phone is bad, but maybe now that it has CWM we can get a good GB rom. I only have 4 more day s to return it though.  I’m frustrated.

    I got the revo and im pretty suprised how smooth n snappy it is and i can easily get 16 + hours of batt life not sayin this is the best phone but i thinks its a above average phone!! Dont care for the ui but launcher pro takes care of that so im exvited for cwm n hopefully some cm7.

    I was having trouble with that htc thunderbolt went through 3 phones on a matter of 2mos,traded up for the lg revolution and not only is it faster but i havent had no trouble of any kind with it. The lg revolution has been an excellent phone for me

    I know most people are not particularily fond of the Revolution, and nither was I, comming from a OGD I didnt think anything could live up to it, but I wanted to get locked into unlimited 4G and it was the best of the 3. But now that I have had it for 2 weeks I like it more and more every day, Higher Quadrent score than the other 2 (in the store), surprizingly nice display, good battery life (last all day at work on 3G and a few more hours playing on the internet on 4G afterwards), easy to root, totally unlocked and not encrypted, LG UI is not intrusive (Gingerbread launcher + handcent + hacker keyboard = almost stock feeling). The only thing its missing, and arguably the most important thing of all, is developer support. Most reviews seem biased against LG (not sure why I had very good luck with my chocolate, env and env2) but it really is a great phone. I am extatic to be able to join team LG again and give moto the boot.

  • Ugly software. Wanna-be TouchWiz.

    Did anybody buy this phone? I took a look at it in my Verizon store and honestly if felt like crap. Super plasticy and cheap feeling. Even the Charge feels better to hold.

    • While I disagree with saying the Charge feels better, I can say this phone is bad. The screen is nice, but it’s still terrible.

  • Stelv81

    I agree. I don’t think anyone bought this phone. LG is reporting losses.

    • I bought it. I’m returning it today! The optimus overlay is awful, the bing doesn’t even work.

    Hope that we will see this soon for the DX2 where’s the love at this DX2 will rock if it had some dev support.. please don’t leave us DX2 owner hanging in the wind

      um… dx2 is locked down like the D2 and DX, people arent jumping on them as quick anymore.  The Revo got the love because it is wide open.

      • ^Exactly.

        • Zukrdroid

          The love of 2 people (thecubed and majorpay) but it was an awsome ride.

  • I got to play around with it at the store and I’ll admit that I was very impressed.  My only problem with the phone is the whole ‘bing’ thing.  Seriously?  Bing on an Android phone?  Just doesn’t make sense to me

    • Apparently Sammy and LG signed agreements with MS because it’s “cheaper” to put Bing on the phones instead of “licensing” Google for use in Android. Or so says the dumb-ass Verizon rep at the store. They may have signed agreements, but those aren’t the reasons.

    • I’m unfortunately one of those few. I sent this in because it is indeed newsworthy, but I still don’t think I’ll be keeping this phone. I just want some solid details on the S2 or the Bionic!
