What's this you ask?
It's a quick and easy way to get ClockworkMod Recovery installed on your LG Revolution 4G.
Super simple. Download app. Install app. Click button. Done!
What is this?
An app written entirely by yours truly, that allows you to easily install and update ClockworkMod Recovery on your device. This app also allows you to revert to the stock LG recovery with a single click of a button.
This app also allows you to reboot into recovery easily without having to fumble with ADB or timing your button presses on boot.
To be able to install this app and use it, your device MUST be rooted already.
This app does not root your phone (yet!)
Instructions for Installing
There's a few ways to get this app installed on your phone...
The easiest is as follows:
1) Open this page on your phone, scroll down to the download link, and click it.
2) Your device will download the .apk and ask you to install it. Follow the on-screen instructions.
An alternate method is to download the apk file, put it on your sdcard, then open it using a file manager on the phone.
Instructions for Use
Make sure you're on a fast connection, like wifi or 4G. Downloading over 3G may take a long time!
Open the app, and you'll be presented with two buttons:
Check version and Install recovery.
Click Check version, and accept the superuser prompt.
If you don't have Clockwork installed, it should output the installed version as "Revo Stock".
If no version is listed, STOP and post here.
Once you have determined your recovery version, you can click the "Install" button. From there you will be asked which version to install. Select the most recent version (topmost), click OK and accept the superuser prompt.
After clicking OK, do not touch your phone until the process completes! A pop-up will inform you whether the process completed or failed.
At this time, there is no way to cancel the installation process once it has started. Exiting the app will not cancel the install.
Once the install has finished, you can press Menu -> Reboot Recovery to painlessly enter ClockworkMod Recovery.
I get an md5 error! What do I do?
For the most part, don't worry. Just don't reboot your phone into recovery, since then you'll get stuck in fastboot mode.
Just wait a few minutes and try installing again. If you're using Wifi, try using 3g/4g to download and vice versa if using 3g/4g.
I get some other error, or the program doesn't even run at all!
Make sure busybox is installed to /system/bin with the proper permissions.

Special thanks to all the testers that helped me make sure this app was ready for primetime!
