You should probably try that last command one more time. 5th time's the charm.

On a more serious note.
1) Make sure it's in the same directory as adb.
2) rename the damn file to an easier name. newrecovery.img is fine (or w/e you want).
3) I didn't need the whole printout of adb commands, but thanks

After many said it couldn't be done... here we are! How to Install 0. Prerequisites You will need: - ADB and fastboot (http://dottech.org/downloads/adb_fas...ther_tools.zip) - LG's ADB drivers, available here. Optionally, you will need: - Root. (Use SuperOneClick root) Note: Root is not required for flashing via fastboot, but may be required for recovering should anything go wrong! 1. Back up your old recovery! ROOT REQUIRED Open up a shell on your device by using adb shell or running your terminal emulator. If you see a $prompt, type Code: su to get root. Otherwise if you see a # prompt you are ready to proceed. Type Code: dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p17 of=/sdcard/stock-recovery.img to write the stock recovery to your sd card. This will take about 8 MB of space. 2. Prepare the phone for future awesomeness First, we must get the device into fastboot mode. In order to do this you must be able to have ADB access to the device. ADB is accessible when you are on the charging screen and when the phone is fully booted. You can enable ADB (debugging) access in the Application settings to access the adb service while your phone is fully booted. Get the phone to the charging screen or enable ADB in the OS. Now, plug in the phone and verify you have adb access from your computer: Code: adb devices If your phone is not showing up, go into device manager and make sure the LG ADB drivers are properly installed. Once you have ADB access, run this command on your computer: Code: adb reboot bootloader This brings the device into fastboot mode. What does fastboot mode look like? Well, it looks like a whole lot of nothing, mainly. If your phone boots up at this point and hangs out at the LG logo for a while, you're in fastboot mode. To verify it's in fastboot mode, run Code: fastboot devices it should show something like Code: C:\androidsdk\platform-tools\> fastboot devices ? fastboot If you see this, you are ready to flash! 3. Flash! To flash, first run Code: fastboot erase recovery This erases the recovery partition and ensures that everything is zeroed out so nothing gets in the way. Now run Code: fastboot flash recovery C:\Path\to\downloaded\lgc800-recovery-cwm-chui101.img protip: Tab autocompletes. It saves a lot of key strokes if you have a lot of long folder names like I do! It should almost instantaneously transfer the recovery image, and pause just a few seconds more to write the CWM recovery image. When done, you can type Code: fastboot reboot to reboot the phone back into the main OS. 4. Reboot into recovery! To reboot into recovery: - Issue an adb reboot recovery from your computer wherever you have ADB access (charging screen, stock recovery, or the main Android environment if you have it enabled there.) - Or, from the phone's powered off state, hold down VOL DOWN, F, and A, and press the power button. Once the LG logo appears, you can release the power button. Once the LG logo disappears and reappears, release all the the buttons. Welcome to CWM recovery! You can take a nandroid backup, mount USB storage, and flash zips from here! Hopefully this opens the door to CM9 and other custom ROMs on this device! Buttons are: MENU or VOL+ = up HOME or VOL- = down GENIUS or ENTER = select BACK or DEL = back Note: If anything goes wrong, you can return to stock recovery by using Code: dd if=/sdcard/stock-recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p17 , or by using the CWM flashable zip available below. Note: Above command REQUIRES ROOT. Downloads It is recommended that you check the MD5 sum of your downloads!

dowhat I just posted right above this post make sure your cwm image is on root of your sdcard don't do the whole process only back up cwm form terminal emulator then restore your cwm but restore with your new cwm. Easy fix. I tried everything kept having the same problem. And bam! Now I have cwm.

Put your cwm on the root of you sdcard. Make sure its named recovery.img all lower case. Then type this in android terminal

su then push enter

dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p17 then push enter

Type it exactly way you see it

When that done type reboot recovery wait 2 min it will pop up then thank me lol
