Here is the modified Nandroid for the LG Eve / Etna GW620. It’s still VERY alpha, so use at your own risk, but it’s working for me. I did a full wipe and restore, and got my LG Eve / Etna GW620 back to working condition.  LG Android Phones

How to install the Nandroid on your LG Eve / Etna GW620 Steps:

Backup:  LG Cell Phone Software

  1. Boot the device in to Fastboot mode.
    (e.g. power the device on and hit space within about 2-3 seconds)
  2. From a Linux root command prompt (#, not $) cd to the directory you unpacked this archive in to
  3. Type "fastboot boot everecovery01a.img" You may need to specify the full path to the android sdk.
    E.g. "/usr/android-sdk-linux/tools/fastboot boot everecovery01a.img"
  4. Wait while the recovery image boots on the device
  5. Type "./nandroideve01a.sh <backupname>" where <backupname> is the folder you want the img files to go to.
  6. Wait patiently, especially for the system and data partitions
  7. Study the output. Ensure there are no errors! I can’t stress this enough. If there are errors listed you probably do NOT have a valid backup.
  8. To verify your backup you can use the unyaffs command on the system.img and userdata.img and examine the results to ensure they match what’s on the device.

Restore prep:

  1. Boot the device in to Fastboot mode.
    (e.g. power the device on and hit space within about 2-3 seconds)
  2. From a Linux root command prompt (#, not $) cd to the directory you unpacked this archive in to
  3. Type "fastboot boot everecovery01a.img" You may need to specify the full path to the android sdk.
    E.g. "/usr/android-sdk-linux/tools/fastboot boot everecovery01a.img"
  4. Wait while the recovery image boots up
  5. Type "adb shell" to get to the phone’s command prompt. Again, you may need to specify the full path to the adb command if you haven’t put the sdk in to your $PATH
  6. From the devices command prompt:
    (Note: These commands are destructive. Make SURE you have a complete and valid backup of your device before executing! We zero out the system and userdata partitions because simply restoring an image, even if you "fastboot erase" first, results in a corrupted filesystem)
  7. Type "cat /dev/zero > /dev/mtd3" to erase the System partition
  8. Type "cat /dev/zero > /dev/mtd4" to erase the userdata partition
  9. Type "exit" to get back to your Linux shell prompt
  10. Now you can do the restore!

Restore:

  1. Boot the device in to Fastboot mode.
    (e.g. power the device on and hit space within about 2-3 seconds)
  2. From a Linux root command prompt (#, not $) cd to the directory you specified as your <backupname> in backup step 5
  3. Type "fastboot flash boot boot.img" (specify sdk path as before if req’d)
  4. Type "fastboot flash system system.img"
  5. Type "fastboot flash userdata userdata.img"
  6. Done! Reboot, and you should have your system back!

Note: For steps 3, 4, and 5 of the recovery process. If you get a FAILED message when writing the img file, simply reboot in to fastboot mode and try again. Sometime fastboot can only write a few times before it needs a reset.

Also, for any of these processes I find it easiest to take the battery out and leave it out till I’m done. Fastboot and the Recovery image will both happily work via USB power, and it makes the resets as simple as unplugging the USB cable.

Oh, and I’m working on getting the recovery interface on the Eve to work. I just need to figure out how to map a hard-key to ball-press. Once the interface is working on the Eve (instead of having to do everything from a Linux box) all you Windows users will be able to make backups too.
