Default Install CWM touch recovery on Optimus 4x HD (P880)

Note: You need an optimus 4X with UNLOCKED BOOTLOADER and ROOTED, also you need optimus 4x drivers and ADB installed in your computer (ADB attached).

1. Go to: http://www.clockworkmod.com/rommanager and download the last touch image for LG Optimus 4x.

2. [Recommended] rename the image file (like: "recovery-clockwork-touch-X.X.X.X-p880.img") to "recovery.img"

3. Connect your 4X to the computer and copy the image to the root of your internal sdcard (/sdcard).

4. In your computer, open a command prompt in you adb folder and type "c:\adb>adb shell".

5. Type:

su
cat /mnt/sdcard/recovery.img >/dev/block/mmcblk0p1
sync

6. Restart in recovery mode (shut down and turn on pressing power button + volume down button).

The guy's trying to give a hand for who can't donate for lacking CC reasons, its not that everyone who doesn't donate doesn't want to.
You don't need to be an ass because you're one of the people who donated.

I don't use RomManager, and it has nothing to do with costs. I have bought many apps over the last couple of years, but RomManager doesn't do anything that you can't do yourself.

I have said it before and will again ... people are much better off being able to install things like Recoveries, ROMs, Kernels etc on their own, from the command line or ADB rather than relying on an application to do it for them. That way you know what to do if it goes wrong and you can't get access to your phone's Android O/S. I have seen far too many people not know how to fix it and then panic like mad because they need help and no-one replies within 5 minutes when they really, really need their phone working straight away

Also, PayPal isn't a solution for the Play Store - there are some countries that simply can't get access to certain apps and there are some people (especially the younger ones) who can't get a card, a PayPal account or whatever else.

I must admit that the supportive (and maybe correct way) it's install this app using cwm rom manager and donate for it, despite of that, I'm not hacking cwm, clockworkmod guys publish freely the image so anyone that knows adb commands can install touch recovery, again, if you can, you should donate for this app but if for any reason you can't donate you could try this method.

And for PayPal you would need a CC to put money or it. Or a Bank account. If you think about it.
