Looking for CWM Recovery LG-V700
I was able to easily root my LG-V700 with TowelRoot. Now I would like to get a ClockworkMod recovery installed. Has anyone ported it over for this device yet? I see that BobZhome ported for the VS700, but I don't know if that is compatible and I fear bricking my device. Has anyone that has rooted found a working recovery?

I'm pretty sure you won't brick it with purpledrake, from what I read it has a mechanism for testing first so you'll be fine if the method fails. So far purpledrake seems to root most of the G pads

Purple Drake worked for me this morning on my $50 V410. Took some tinkering with the sequence, but what worked was this:
1. Enable USB Debugging
2. Find and install drivers for windows
3. Download, unzip, run Purple Drake on PC
4. AFTER Purple Drake started and is looking for device, then plug in.
5. Read what PD is telling you before you click enter (several times)
6. After first boot, get supersu from play store, install, update binaries, reboot
7. Get a custom recovery and NADROID ON FIRST OPPORTUNITY
8. Read about the joys and rewards of homebrewing

Kingroot worked flawlessly on G Pad 10.1 vk700
Well I had it a couple days and I couldn't take the 1 gb ram and it was jus too slow so I said screw it, popped in kingroot (4.1v), one click and Giggity Giggity ..Success! Thank god cuz I'm shy a pc right now. I installed busybox on the second attempt which was weird cuz I used one (stericson?I think) and wouldn't update then I installed some other installer and it updated. I am going to consider xposed next, but first I need to toss kinguser for SuperSU and need a custom recovery also. If anyone knows where I could look for these steps without a pc I would highly appreciate it. So far the apps I have used worked fine but the normal install SuperSU and let it replace the old su couldn't update the binaries. I've seen the Super Sume app in the store but I'm cautious to reroot and I can't even figure out how to boot into recovery on this device and have never flashed before thanks in advance

Kingroot has also successfully rooted my Verizon G-Pad 10.1 vk700. But he's dug in deep. I'll deal with him later. But looking for a custom recovery. None of the major recoveries seem to have a version for this device, inlcuding TWRP, CWM or even Philz. So if anyone knows where I could locate one, or is interested in porting with myself as a tester, please message or respond
