Default Unable to flash CWM

Hello! I've been trying to flash CWM on my LG Optimus 3D, but, unfortunately, I was unable to. I am currently on a stock ROM (or should I say..stuck ROM)
My device is rooted, USB Debugging is enabled, I tried with ROM Manager and Recovery Flash (both from the Market) as well as two PC application. Here is what I get from the CWM Recovert touch installer:

Code:
        #######################################
        #                                     #
        #    With this tool you flash the     #
        # ClockWorkMod-Recovery-Touch 5.8.1.5 #
        #     at your LG-P920 Optimus 3D      #
        #                                     #
        #                        by paki0402  #
        #######################################


       ==== You do this on your own risk!! ====

            You want to flash the recovery
           and you agree the disclaimer then
          choose "Y" to start or "N" to exit!
       ========================================


Choose Y or N [Y,N]?Y


 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 ###       Start Installation      ###


 ------------------
  Start ADB-Server
 ------------------

* daemon not running. starting it now *
* daemon started successfully *


 ----------------
    Copy Files
 ----------------



 ----------------------------
  Install CWM-Recovery-Touch
 ----------------------------

/sdcard/mmcblk0p6.backup: cannot open for write: Read-only file system
/sdcard/recovery.img: cannot open for read: No such file or directory
/sdcard/recovery.img: cannot open for read: No such file or directory


 ----------------------
   Remove Temp-Files
 ----------------------

rm failed for /sdcard/recovery.img, Permission denied


 ---------------------
    Reboot Device
 ---------------------



 ###   Installation finished!   ###
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Press any key to continue . . .
After so many tries, I went in to ROM Manager (where it tells me there is no available version for my P920 and specified as manually installed 3x+. Now my phone won't start. I press the power button, the LG logo appears for half a second, then it shuts down. Guess I'll have to reflash it with the LG Recovery tool...
Thank you in advance!

You can substitute your own choice of rom after loading the V28b that updates your phone to 4.0.4 (ICS)

Thank you very much, my friend! I shall try to do this. However, I wanted to find a ROM that is below 4.0.4, I already have the stock 4.0.4 installed, and it is really, really slow. I was looking for an older ROM but unfortunately all links are dead..And CyanogenMod seems not to work for me --'

If you do a search on the optimus 3d forum for "downgrade to gingerbread" you will find help to downgrade. A gingerbread (2.3.5) rom can not be used if you do not downgrade from ICS. None of the rom manager type of apps that are available from the play store work with this phone.Only use the methods to install roms using the recommended methods in the optimus 3D forums
If you upgraded to ICS using LG official update tools, many users have had problems after upgrading. Try the method described in my original post and if you are not happy with the results maybe then try a downgrade.
