Pantech Sky Vega LTE EX IM-A820L, Rooting, Recovery, Installing Rom

[This is out dated, the process is ok, but the hosted files are missing. This process is only for 2.3.3. Learn the concept-thanks, shantonu]

In this article, we are going to learn how to root a Korean android set(Pantech Sky Vega LTE EX IM-A820L). We will also see how to install recovery in this set. Later on we will discuses detail basic on android rooting.
In this blog, we will just see how to do it. All credit goes to XDA developers and this site.

For Rooting : 
Step 1 : Install the driver of the phone (go to pentech site in Google chrome browser or use Google translate , then select you device and download the USB driver. And then install it)
Step 2: Change the phone connecting mode to USB Debugging enabled and allowing Unknown Source application when you connect the phone to PC.
To enable Unknown Source applications , Go to menu –> settings –> Applications –> select, Unknown Sources.
To enable USB Debugging , Go to menu –> settings –> Applications –> Development –> select, USB Debugging
Step 3 : Download and Extract Fast Boot driver from here and Rooting tool from here.
Step 4 : Connect the phone and Go to extracted rooting tool (..\A820Lroot) and run that file "run_me.bat"
This phone will be rooted after reboot and superuser App will be installed. Please check superuser App for rooting verification. If not, do the steps again.

For Recovery :
Step 1 : Download recovery58 and recovery6
Step 2 : Connect Phone to PC as USB mass storage.
Step 3 :  Extract the "A820L-recovery5.8.2.0"
Step 4 : Copy a. recovery folder under extracted A820L-recovery5.8.2.0 (there will be recovery5820.img file) b. A820L_Recovery 6011.zip . Past both in phone.
Step 5 : Use any root file explorer(I use ES Explorer) to copy that two file in the root folder(\root\ )of the phone memory
Step 6 : In the extracted A820L-recovery5.8.2.0, run 刷Recovery.exe. Phone will reboot to recovery
Step 7 : Choose, Install zip from sdcard -> choose zip from sdcard , select A820L_Recovery 6011.zip  and install it
Step 8 : After finishing installation, come back to first menu and go to advance -> reboot to recovery
Step 9 : After reboot, take a backup For taking backup, goto Backup and restore , choose backup format as tar. then take a backup(it will be clockworkMod backup in the phone memory)
While rebooting in the step 8,you will get a menu, if you select EXIT, then Full recovery will be re-flash and back to default recovery(this is temp mod), but if you select don't re-flash(middle option), then new recovery will be permanent.
Note : For default recovery , volume Up & Down are selecting option and SKY touch button is for entering the option.

For Custom Rom: 
When you took the backup of current ROM in previous step, there is a folder structure saved in the internal memory(EX-\sdcard \clockworkmod\backup\1970-02-15.21.52.02). This is the backup structure and restoring path. In this set, till now, it is not possible to install ROM directly. We have to use restore method to install new rom. For that we need rom which is kept as restoring format.
Note : This is possible if we have ClockworkMod recovery v6.0.1.1 installed.
Step1: Get latest ROM(Up to OCT 16, 2012) please download this 3 file
1. Part 1., 2. Part 2 , 3.Part 3
Step 2: Now keep all 3 files in a folder and extract any one by using 7zip. These are part files, so they will be extracted to a single folder.(Download Location of 7zip)
Step 3: After extraction , a folder will be created named as "1970-04-03.17.22.38". Connect your phone to computer
Step 4: Enable USB storage(so that we can access internal memory of mobile)
Step 5: Open windows explorer and Copy the folder to \clockworkmod\backup and Eject mobile from PB
Step 6 : Now, boot to Recovery( to do that, power off mobile, then press power button + volume down(-), keep pressing until the mobile goes to recovery mode.)
Step 7: Now, From recovery screen Go to Backup & restore
Step 7:Go to Restore and select the  "1970-04-03.17.22.38" to restore


And you have done it. You have latest version of Rom Installed. Just reboot and you will get new Rom.

Note : For ClockworkMod recovery , volume Up & Down are selecting option and power button is for entering the option

Notice.... Please do all of these by your own risk. I am not responsible for those. And, frankly I have got several data issues in the New ROM. But, rooting and recovery, taking backup is pretty Awesome.

Spatial Modes : 
Safe mode = Hold Vol Up  after Power
Recovery = Volume Down + Power
Emergency Mode(for self Upgrade) = inserting battery while pressing Vol Up+Vol down+Power

...Thanks....:)

    1. This occurs when PC reboot to recovery can't find the recovery partition image. I assume , you past the recovery file in wrong place or the recovery image is damaged that you have downloaded. For Safe run, use run as administrator when you run recovery commands from pc.

  28. Please help. Someone mucked around with my phone and I think they rooted my phone or changed a bunch of things around.
    My Sky a820l now loads up with a DROID animation like Motorola Droid's phones. The layout and everything is completely changed. I didn't like it so I did a full factory reset in my phone's options.
    Still loads up with the DROID splash screen/animations. Now it is stuck at the Touch the Android to Begin screen. Phone responds to touch with vibration when I touch the droid but I can't get past that screen. I tried to bypass with the 4 corner touch method but it is not working either. I see Emergency Dialer and Change Language options (English, Vietnamese and I think Chinese).

    I just want everything back to 100% stock Sky a820l. I have something else loaded on phone called the clockwork recovery mod when i hold down the power down button and select restart->recovery mode/boot.

    I haven't rooted/flashed/modded phones before but I am a quick learner. Just need pointers in the right direction cause I don't know where to begin and I can't take it back to the dude who did this to my phone because he's no longer around.

    1. There may be a several issues. I am not sure. Let me tell you some of causes..
      1. you have installed spam APP
      2. any app is continuously asking some admin stuffs(like as requests root permission) which you current android can not provide and get restarted,.
      3. Any app or android background process is requesting for rebooting.

      So, possible solution should be
      1. Un installing that problem app or
      2. Make a hard reset and clean the device
      3. The worsts case : Install new android

      My all of the solution points that your device is ok but software is not ok. Please check the hardware first to do anything described here. Once I had similar issue like, my camera app crashing.. I un install , reset and even install new android...then even, Actually, the camera ribbon was miss placed due to keeping in my pocket.

    1. As far as I understand, you want to check whether your mobile is rooted or not , install es explorer, open es explorer, goto settings and ask for root permission and system file access. If your phone is rooted, you will prompt to grant root access. this way you can get if your mobile is rooted or not.

So I restarted the device, but it didn't boot and phone kept on showing the initialization screen. I tried fast boot mode and emergency mode also but failed as a white screen showed always with fast boot mode wording written. Kindly help me....I had sony xperia with the same problem and managed to refresh software from sony website and got it corrected. But here i visited sky websites and all is in korian language which is an issue for me. Would you please guide me step by step process. Thanks

    1. You need to re install OS from main site. And , I use chrome to translate some UI to english (but I had to use IE for self upgrade). Here are some roms, http://mizal.net:82/pantech/. Please match with your device model. As, I do not have 800s device, I can not specify the steps.

    1. This happened to me also for the first time. My problem was , all driver was not installed. Install driver and reboot pc. And connect the phone and try to see device manager(windows) whether there is any device which is Unknown or not(unknown after connecting phone). It indicates about driver installation successful or not.

  64. Hi Mr. Sarker,

    I am from Singapore, I bought this phone (Pantech Sky Vega LTE EX IM-A820L) from Korea and I was told that the SIM has already been unlocked. When I try to use this phone in Singapore, I have already set the correct APN settings provided by the local network provider (M1), nonetheless I cannot access internet using my simcard. But I can access wifi and call out. Please kindly advise what setting should I set. Your help is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    1. Hi

      Your sim unlock but sim data is not unlock(3g/lts). You ave to unlock that with code. You can get the unlock code from mobile engineers(you need to buy).

      Thanks

    2. Thank you for your prompt reply. I will search this service online ;)

    3. Hi Shantonu,

      I have looked into the unlock service online but they were telling me that since my phone has unlocked and there isn't anything that they can do. Do you happen to know which shop/website can deal with this problem (i.e. connecting to internet via wifi but not 3G)?

      Also, when I message,
      1) the phone doesn't allow me to send to people with country code saved in my contacts
      2) the phone wont show sender ID since I save my contacts without country code
      3) prompting me to key in my number when I send out msg
      4) only allow me to send 80 characters msg

      I am wondering whether I need to upgrade the OS or root/flash my phone.

      Kindly advise and as I am not tech expert so I do not really know what rooting and flashing do on my phone, it will be helpful if you can guide me.

      Thanks a lot for your help :)

    4. Hi

      -I have unlocked my sky from local shop in Bangladesh.
      -After unlocking and installing ICS, 80char message limit is gone.

      I think, you need to upgrade using self upgrade from sky main site.(http://www.pantechservice.co.kr/down/self/main.sky)

      Thanks
      Shantonu
