Here's my issue I input the commands and when I think everythings gonna go thru the phone shuts down and restart like I jus turned the phone off on my ownand restarted it up. So far I have not been successful with install the cwm. Anybody have any ideas please share them and thanks

    You can use your USB cord to transfer the file to your SD Card.

    The root of the SD card is just the SD card itself, not in a folder. Just drag the files you need onto the SD card, then take a peek and make sure they didn't end up in a folder. When you look at the SD card you will see files and folders: in that list of muck you should see the files you dragged. If so, then they are on the root.

    Linux and windows are different beasts in that linux is completely linear: everything begins at root and follows that path, whereas with windows each drive or physical entity has it's own path and structure.

    OK I'm gonna explain the reason for that question. When I got the downloaded file for the drivers and the flash_image I had put all that stuff like were it has all my info from my sdcard. I unzipped the flash_image and extracted both files. Putt them on the card and i input the commands for the cwm and when i enter reboot recovery and the phone restarts the lg screen comes up and then the phone will like blink out like it's gonna go to the cwm recovery but then just boots up like i never even did any of that stuff

    Looks like you'll have to try again. Open terminal and type

    Code: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
    su
    cd /system/bin
    ls

    hitting enter after each line. If the flash_image file is listed among the other things, you can skip the first few steps and proceed beginning with chmod 777 flash_image

    OK so I tried to manually boot into recovery on my phone after doing all the commands with the terminal emulator and still won't boot into recovery. I also tried the link about putting such then CD /system/bin then ls and still nothing. When I hold the buttons I'm suppose to hold to get to recovery all the phone does is blinks on and off at the lg screen but when I let go the phone boots right up. Anyone knw what that means or did I do something wrong

    You've done something wrong. You have to be precise with terminal. For example, above you typed CD when the command is cd.

      I LOVE TO ARGUE
    1) turn the device off
    2) on the optimus q hold down *without releasing* the volume down rocker, the home button, and finally the power button (holding all 3 at the same time)
    3) continue holding as the phone powers on until it enters recovery. If you reach a boot animation repeat the process above until it works.

    jcole hadn't realized you did not have recovery installed on your phone when he gave you the instructions to manually boot recovery.
    The thing is, you can stop trying to boot into recovery: it isn't there to boot into.

    I gave you some commands to run to check to see if the flash_image file was on your phone.

    Code: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
    cd /system/bin
    ls

    those are two separate commands, meaning hit 'return' after each. The second command 'ls' should give you a long list of everything in the /system/bin directory. Scroll through the list and make sure flash_image is there. If it is not, start from scratch. If it is, then continue with the command sequence in the install instructions beginning with:

    Code: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
    chmod 777 flash_image
    If none of the above commands are working for you, then something is awry. Type in terminal:

    Code: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
    su
    If your prompt doesn't change to a # sign, you need to root your phone.

    [ hint: no caps in terminal, be aware of spaces ]
