Default Stuck with custom recovery

Hey there!

Just recently rooted my LG E970 (AT&T) so I'm fairly new to this.

I had been running CM11 for about a week and a decided to update to the newest nightly version earlier (cm-11-20131228-NIGHTLY-e970.zip). Well, the installation of the ZIP file failed (Error executing updater binary in zip). I'm using TWRP 2.6.3.0 recovery. Now my Optimus G only boots to TWRP recovery.

I've read that TWRP are having some issues installing 4.4 custom ROMS so it's recommended to use ClockworkMod. The problem is I don't know how to install ClockworkMod manually or using a PC.

So, how do I install CWM and override TWRP without an actual OS on my phone running?

I'm fairly new to rooting and installing custom roms .

Thanks!

That's an old version of twrp, there's a newer one for kk builds floating around here.

Thanks for the reply!

How do I exactly install another version of custom recovery on top of my current one without an OS running on my phone?

I have tried adb and fastboot with no luck.

If you can send me to a site with instructions, that would be fantastic.

Thank you!
