I want to put a custom ROM on my LG G2.
I have successfully applied root permissions using IORoot v25. However I am unable to create a backup of the stock ROM.
I have tried several ways using the
ROM Manager app (v5.5.37):
- Go to
ROM Manager > Recovery Setup > [Install or Update] ClockwordModrecovery. Then tap
Reboot into Recovery. The phone reboots into the recovery menu, but no options to back up are listed. (So I choose option to reboot).
- With CWM Recovery still set, I tap "Backup Current ROM" (underneath it says the backup directory will be
/mnt/shell/emulated/clockworkmod/backup. Again, it boots into the recovery menu without any backup options so I select reboot. Yet nothing appears in the
- Configure ROM Manager to use
TWRP recovery. Then in ROM Manager, tap option to go to recovery mode. Yet again, no backup options are listed, so yet again I choose option to reboot.
- With TWRP Recovery still set, I tap "Backup Current ROM" (underneath it says the backup directory will be
/sdcard/TWRP/BACKUPS/0225b99d9a5159f0. Surprise surprise, no backup options, and no directory
What am I doing wrong?
From what I understand, what I am seeing is the "stock" recovery [program/menu], and neither the TWRP nor the CWM recovery menus are showing. Perhaps they're failing to install, or failing to be run or something? The logs in the app
SuperSU which handles root requests do not give any hints - I can find no mention of CWM or TWRP recovery.
