Here it is, Clockworkmod for the LG Optimus Black

The following has been tested and is working:

- Backup & Restore
- wipe data/factory reset
- wipe cache
- Reboot & Poweroff
- install zip from SD-Card
- Partition SD-Card

Notes:
- Use at your own risk! I´ll take no responsibility for any Bricks etc.
- Apperently the Optimus Black doesn´t have a Keycombination for going to Recoverymode on Booting. So at the moment CWM can only be accessed by rebooting the Phone to Recoverymode via App or Shell from a running System.

Downloads:

Clockworkmod v3.2.0.0 >>DOWNLOAD<<
LG United Mobile Drivers (Windows) >>DOWNLOAD<< (Needed when installing with MS Windows)

How to install:

1. Extract ZIP-File to your Local Computer
2. Connect the Phone with USB-Debugging enabled
3. Run The File install_recovery.bat (on Windows Systems) or install_recovery.sh(on Linux Systems)
4. Grant Root Access on the Phone

On the German android-hilfe.de forum, most did it successfully. Real issue at least for me: that there is no support for booting into cwm using a key combination.

If you don't mind me asking, what was the partition that you put the recovery image on? We are working on a solution for the LG G-Slate which also has no key combination to get into recovery.

Put it to the Recovery Partition. The lack of a key combination to boot Recovery sucks.
