[HowTo] ClockWorkMod Recovery
Thanks to Trekfan422991
for cluing me in on the Optimus 3D recovery.
ADB (after special driver install, need to tweak recovery for it to work with normal drivers)
Mounting USB to computer
Flashing zip files
Fix Permissions (caused lots of crazy issues, fix by wiping data if you use it)
Sdparted (the sdcards are mount incorrectly, this will probably destroy your device)
I am in the process of making a recovery specifically for our device, it is mostly done and will be posted here when it is ready!
What you are going to need:
ADB (and know how to use it, don't ask in here)
Rooted Phone (again, that will not be covered, don't ask in here)

(If you haven't allowed shell su in SuperUser now would be a good time to accept the root request on the phone.)
Now we are going to backup your current recovery to your sdcard. In the cmd prompt type:
(make sure your sdcard is not mounted to your computer)
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p6 of=/sdcard/mmcblk0p6.backup bs=4096
After that is done we are going to flash ClockWorkMod Recovery! In the cmd prompt type:
dd if=/data/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p6 bs=4096
Congrats! You now have ClockWorkMod Recovery! In the cmd prompt type:
