Warning & Issue:

  • DO NOT use the "Format Date" function in wipe menu, this will make a soft brick, if you did this by mistake, you can reboot into stock recovery and run the "wipe date/cache" function to solve the soft brick.
  • This recovery only supported the "standard" packages, this means some package which used none standard( EG: some CWM backup style for LG Optimus 4X HD atm) won’t work on this recovery.
  • For some reasons this recovery not support CWM backup package, only support TWRP backup package style(This is the TWRP issue). But, anyway, I’ll make a patch for this later to support CWM backup package.
