Kirek50 No. There is not any Recovery for LG v490 on Android 5.0.2 Lollipop yet.
because i have a little experience on linux and coding i am trying to find ways to install CWM PhilZ recovery. When and If i find something i will inform you guys.
This Thread has and will have All you Need for LG G Pad 8.0

mescalito83 It might work for many LG Models. Those Guides on this thread are tested and are working on LG v490 i don't know if all of these guides are working on other LG models that's why i don't write that this guide is working on other models. You can write if any of these guides is working on other model but first test it if it works good and then post it. Thanks.

Thanks zaf_4 (Ευχαριστώ)
I Don't think it will work due to different hardware between those 2 devices!
Πάντως άμα βγει καμία ROM για LG v490 θα την ποστάρω σε αυτό το thread
