Easy Way to Install Custom Recovery on LG Optimus Me P350

Check out more than 60 custom ROMs for LG Optimus Me P350 on Hack My Android Forums.

Custom ROMs on LG Optimus Me P350 can not be flashed via an external application and hence you need to do it via Recovery mode. A few days back I wrote a guide to Install Custom Recovery and many of you found it tough as it requires you to enter quite a lot of commands and also, you need to have the Android SDK and JDK installed. Thanks to drapalyuk from XDA who made it easy. This tutorial explains how to install Custom Recovery on LG Optimus Me P350 in an easy way.

 There is yet another easy way to root & install custom recovery at Hack My Android Forums.

Steps to Install Custom Recovery

  1. After you download the zip file to your PC, extract its contents to a folder in your PC using the password “blogotechblog.com”
    Install Custom Recovery on LG Optimus Me P350
  2. Connect your phone to the PC via USB Cable.
  3. Run the file”RecoveryInstaller.bat”
  4. A gscript application would be automatically installed on your phone.

    Are you sure it will work 100%? And btw i unbricked my phone :) ty:))

  2. chris says:

    I think I messed up somewhere. When I turned off my phone, I tried to do the “Call Button + Volume Down Button + Power Button.” thing. But the phone just rebooted normally.

    I was actually trying to install the Cyanogen mod in my LG-P350 through the procedures you have here: http://www.blogotechblog.com/2012/01/install-cyanogenmod-7-2-on-lg-optimus-me-p-350/

    Instead, I just ran Gscript Lite, and clicked “script” (the 4th entry, the one newly installed). The phone rebooted with a black screen, with the following text:

    Fastmoot mode started
    STALL GET_DESRIPTOR 128 6 1006 0 18
    fastboot: processing commands

    Now it’s stuck there. I tried rebooting but my phone reboots to that screen. Is my phone bricked? Thanks in advance.

  3. Chris says:

    Thanks, I managed to reinstall the ClockworkMod through Fastboot. I read it somewhere after extensive research 😀 Turns out I did mess up somewhere. :)

    Btw, I was successful in installing CyanogenMod 7 to my LG-P350. The risks were all worth it. Keep it up Sir Lalit. Your site has been a great help. 😉

    • Remove the battery and reinsert it. If it does not work, press the Call button + Power Button + Volume Down button. This will either reset your phone or boot into recovery!

  14. Manju says:

    Hi Lalit,

    I got error, when my phone restart after doing the above steps.

    “Fastboot mode started

    Like this please help me.

    • Oh well, it seems you will not be able to boot! Remove the battery and re insert it around 3-4 times. If that does not work, insert the batter and press the Volume Down button + Call button and Power button together unless you see the recovery screen. If you do not see the recovery screen, your phone will be reset. This is the only way you can get rid of this fastboot mode! Let me know if this does not work and I will tell you how to make it work :)

    • Manju says:

      Hi Lalit,

      I tryed as per your instructions but it’s not happening. before this one month i updated my phone firmware to v10F. so i think because of this the reset option is not working i hold that Volume Down button + Call button and Power button, but still it is going to Fastbootmode.

      please could tell me is there any Plan B for solving this issue.

      And great thanks for your above instructions.

    • Yes, there is a Plan B which lets you unbrick LG Optimus Me. Just follow the second method listed here with heading “Root LG Optimus Me After firmware Upgrade” This process involves rolling back to stock firmware using KDZ updater! Hope this helps!

    • Manju says:

      Hi Lalit,

      You are just like a medicine for everyone and your treatment is worked for me GREAT THANKS.

      Now my phone is running on Cosmic Experia ROM.

      Once Again Great Thanks. :)

    • You’re welcome Manju :) Thanks for your appreciation!

  15. Deki says:

    @ yoganand yes it is ppssible without pc. It is the same method as one with android sdk instaler. U just need to download terminal emulator from market and type the same comands that u would type in cmd,without adb shell comand. Thats how i did on my phone.

  23. sreenath says:

    i rooted my lg optimus me using gingerbreak
    i tried to install custom rom by downloading ROM manager from market
    now my phone is not working its dead pls help me out

    • ROM Manager does not work with LG Optimus Me. Can you put it into Emergency Mode? To do this, Remove your phone battery and re-insert it. Hold the Volume UP+Volume Down+Power Button together. You will see a yellow screen and Emergency mode written on it.

    • If you can boot into Emergency mode, you can follow the second method listed here If you face any issues, feel free to tell me :)

  30. cristy says:

    Mr. Lalit I did all what is mentioned in your blog but how come when after the blue screen appears my phone just goes to reboot not into recovery mode…I don’t know what went wrong coz all went well until that reboot part…mind telling me what to do? And if its this way can I continue to install the cyanogen nightlies rom? sorry for so many questions…I hope you can help me..

    • Just tell me what happens when you press Call + Volume Down + Power button simultaneously? If you don’t have recovery installed, it will reset your phone, so make sure you have backup!

  64. Thank you Lalit. Type “lg p350 usb driver for windows 7” on google search and download usb driver from LG website. Install LG driver on PC. This step is missing here. It seems you all tried without lg usb drivers. Its required for debugging.

  65. Thank you again.
