    thank you.
    some other recoveries that are based on CWM put that folder there -- i'm using CWMA and i have that folder too.

    to flash clockworkmod, grab the latest image that's compatible with the Optimus V.

    then, go to the market and get android terminal emulator, if you don't already have it.
    https://market.android.com/details?i...al.androidterm

    place the recovery image in the root folder of your sd card. then start up terminal on your phone.

    type su to get root access, then type the following:

    flash_image recovery /sdcard/[name of image].img

    when it's finished, exit terminal and reboot your device. you're done!

    recovery-clockwork-3.0.0.6-ov-20110220.img
    ?
    that would be correct! i'd rename it to something easier to type out in terminal though, like recovery.img

    you're very welcome!! glad i could help

    oh, just a tip, when you first run terminal, the font is ridiculously small, but you can increase its size in settings to make things easier to read.

    yes, sorry, i forgot that step.

    hmm.. i'm not sure why it wouldn't be showing up still, unless ROM manager just doesn't natively support our phone... i think that both clockworkmod recovery and cm7 were ported to our phones... sorry i can't be more helpful, i haven't personally used ROM manager.

    Bolded part gets you a silver sticker .

    NO our phone is not supported by Clockwork mod or Cyanogen Mod. Both are unofficial ports by the dev community. Im sure both would be happy to list us as a officially supported phone is pushed and requested. However its not necessary.

    TO the OP if your not able to flash to the most current release you have on your phone there is something not properly setup. But if your trying to download a rom from rom manager and install using clockwork STOP DONT TURN AROUND AND EXIT.

    NONE I REPEAT NONE of the roms available from rom manager are for our phone. The only place you should be getting roms for the optimus v is from here or xda. You are just going to end up with a 200 dollar paperweight and a not so good one as its not that heavy.

    Clockworkmod would work great for u if u had an older optimusv. i have used it on two of my OVs. its recovery worked great on both. Now that is only for older optimusv. If u have an newer one it might cause "blackscreen" because newer OVs r put together with optimusS screens which run on a different driver, which isnt support ( this is what i heared ). The reason why it says image not found when u used the emulator is that the stock rom 2.2.1 does not "know" how to flash a recovery image ( this is what i heared too ). I had the same problem when i was workin on my second OV. i ended up taking my chance with clockworkmod recovery and it worked for me.

    Bobzhome vm670nh recovery works fine with rom manager on both screen versions unofficially. Official support for the overall was dropped due to the official cwm 4.2.0.1(i think) did not support the new Hitachi screens. Many thought they were bricked. Lots of headache helping newbs recover from that.

    Actually: The ZenGarden recovery works just fine with ROM Manager and QtADB. Just set the recovery to 5.X.X.X in Recovery Setup option in ROM Manager.
    I have no problems making new backups (already named) of my current ROM. No problems with restore as well.
