Recovery LA-Q1

Author adMember Info


Hi all, this is my first submission. Thanks to everyone on this site, I was able to get my LA-Q1 working without too many tears. I'd like to return the favour by releasing this custom CWM Recovery image that I've built. The key features are English language and touch input.

I have tested this on my Small Chili and it all seems to work.

From the documentation included with this ZIP release:


- English.

- Modern.

- Touch input.


To install:

- Ensure you have the USB drivers for your PC. You can get universal drivers from website: AdbDriver.com

- Ensure you have root.

- Plug phone into PC via USB cable.

- Run "recovery.bat":

  - Select option 1.

  - It will prompt for root permissions on your android: grant them.

  - It will finish writing the image.

  - You can now quit recovery.bat, once it's finished and back at the main screen.

- You can now boot into Arfonzo's CWM Recovery.



You can find me on Fatcats BBS (fatcatsbbs.com):



Thanks to the original author of the "LA-Q1_Recovery.zip" package, which was modified to install this ROM image.

    Hi all, for clarification this is based on ClockworkMod recovery version, not the official recovery. :)

    Works great! Just used it to make a Nandroid backup. Using 'Choose .zip from SDcard' is a real upgrade from stock recovery! Thanks!

    Do you know how to root this phone too ?
    I would be very greatfull if you can help me with this.

    I also can’t update the firmware, because the original recovery is and it tells me that the update.zip is not signed.

    Hi cornel_ghisoiu,

    You can read some other LA-Q1 threads for more details on rooting. Here are the basic steps:


    You can get the root updater here: http://rocksteady.poorcoding.c.....root_update.zip.

    - Rename root_update.zip to update.zip and put it on the root of your SD card.

    - You can flash this using stock recovery or CWM recovery.

    - You should not have issues with update.zip not being signed.
