Hi, I present you CWM Recovery 6 with easy apk installer for LG L9 (For now tested P760 and P765). It has few bugs but This recovery is stable for use. Now It supports JellyBean and other roms.

Recovery tested on: P760, P765, P768 (on other variants recovery also should work)

If you have unlocked bootloader use this better recovery: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2394985

What is working:
  1. Backup and Restore
  2. Installing zip
  3. ADB
  4. All partitions are mounted
  5. Internal SD Card fully working!
  6. Charging
  7. SD-EXT partition (only ext3)
What isn't working:
  1. External and Internal SD USB Mount (can't be fixed because recovery don't allow to mount mtp, copy files through adb or use this app to copy: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1057059)

Requirements:
  1. LG L9
  2. Root
  3. Correct busybox

Download: http://artas182x.tk/?page_id=6

Fix for users which didn't have error during installation, but they can't boot to recovery (thanks for @Tablechair for detailed instructions :)
Long long time ago this recovery refused to work for me. I installed busybox with this installer https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bitcubate.root.busybox.complete it worked for me and 100% of people I've recommended it to. Give it a shot

Booting to recovery:
  1. Turn off phone
  2. Turn on, when LG logo appears and leds will be blinking press and hold vol down button
  3. You are in recovery :)
  4. You can also use option in CWM installer to reboot to CWM

Removing recovery:
  1. Delete /system/bootstrap directory
  2. Delete /system/bin/e2fck
  3. Rename /system/bin/e2fck.bin to e2fck
  4. Done!

Thanks to:
milaq - for the CWM Installer for Prada. I was basing on this recovery.

About SD-EXT support
I added support for sd-ext partition. For now only ext3 partition works. To use compatible with my recovery sd-ext parition I reccomend to partition sd card usung Advanced>Partition SD Card in my recovery. All data will be deleted! After this paritioning sd-ext works with my recovery and Link2SD. If you partition SD Card in recovery don't try to create swap partition, because we haven't got support for swap.

  1. Support for Jellybean and other roms

  2. Fixed ADB, now working correctly

1.3.1.0

  2. Can't still mount Internal and External SD because can't mount in recovery through MTP, please copy files through adb or use this app to copy: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1057059)

FAQ:
Q: How to install and use this?
A: Everything wrote in this theard.

Q: What is CWM?
A: Here it is: http://forum.xda-developers.com/wiki/ClockworkMod_Recovery

Q: When I do Backup in CWM and check backup folder size i see size about 20 mb, my backup should be about 1 GB?
A: Don't worry. CWM since 6 version use diffrent backup format. CWM don't store everything in backup directory, It uses diffrent directories and backup structute. Everything is OK!

Q: I installed CWM and it don't boot.
A: Check if You propely installed this CWM, nad check if you propely boot to recovery. Maybe you tried to install other recovery? If It still doesn't work reflash firmware with KDZ (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2085344), and try to install on clean, rooted rom.

New version with fixed Internal SD is here (updated theard). Internal SD won't be working in 100% (see "What isn't working), because internal sd is located in /data/media directory. Internal sd is on the same partition as data.

Was this error when restoring data, system, cache, boot or recovery. I restored cache and there wasn't any error.

I know, unmount all partitions in mounts and stortage first before restore in recovery. For me works.

I made a backup, then reset the data, and choose Restore.

The phone not boot. Only LG logo runs in a circle.
Rescues: volume- + menu + power = reset

PS. Restored the phone, once again made ​​a restore (with out wipe)
The result is the same - "Error while restoring /data!", and no boot.

Before restore go to Mounts and Stortage then Unmount data, next restore from backup without restart. I did that and It works.

I did version with fix, and fully working internal stortage (I must do only usb mount). You could install zips from internal sd!

EDIT: New version avilable

no recovery

i installed the recovery 2 times and tried everything to get into it, but it doesn't work.
the firmware is fresh flashed per kdz and rooted with "root_with_restore". the recovery installer says it is installed.

btw the leds on my lg l9 (german) didn't ever BLINK on boot, but turn and stay on the last 2 seconds of boot process.
when i then press vol_down, the phone goes into "safe mode". per rom manager, i can't boot into recovery, it boots
into a "fallen down android with excl. mark on opened stomach"^^
i wonder, if my phone does even HAVE any kind of (stock) recovery...and as it seems, THIS kind of recovery isn't
installed where it should usually be on other android devices (so that rom manager can find it).

Now you don't need need to umount data I fixed it in new version avialablr here. Everything works fine.
I don't tested it in P768 but It should work.
If recovery don't work you must do somerhing wrong. For 95 % of users it works. Maybe try to hard reset.

The first version works very well on my phone (except the internal sd card), the lastest version doesn't start.. i see blinking leds, then I press volume- and I'm stuck on the LG logo.. Same thing if I reboot from the app.

Edit: It's working fine on my P760, thank you again!
