There is a guide out there. A horribly wrong guide. A guide that will permanently hard brick your P930 with NO CHANCE of ever getting it back. EVER. This guide is located at http://www.androidauthority.com/lg-nitro-hd-clockworkmod-cwm-recovery-48447/ and you MUST AVOID IT. This guide is also the first one that shows up when you search "Install Clockworkmod Recovery on LG Nitro HD". A word of warning to fellow users, DON'T FOLLOW IT.
Source: I followed it and screwed up my phone; sent it off to LG and they're probably gonna ship it back in a couple of days :D . So yeah.

Not that I'm encourage anyone to follow the manual CWM recovery update instructions posted on Android Authority, but just for sharing and information purposes the recovery partition on the LG Nitro HD is located on mmcblk0p13, not on mmcblk0p6. Also, for those who installed the ICS leak, CMW recovery does not work.

Here's a link to a posting from repherb listing the valid partitions used on the LG Nitro HD for each of the file image types.

New info

Turns out they have posted a second guide with the correct information (mm....0p13), but it hasn't even reached the front page of google search, so right now the aforementioned site is probably the most dangerous website for P930 users wanting to install CWM.

This is why they need to delete their old article, or, holy-****-here's-a-thought, they could simply redirect from the ****ed up guide URL to the new, correct one.
