It’s unofficial but it’s working. This CWM Recovery was posted by NormanD in the forum. And I give the credits to him and thanks to the effort for finally making CWM Recovery possible on LG Optimus L7. And now, the long wait is over. Here it is!

Download the tool: [Link1] [Link2] [Link3]

Instructions for installing CWM custom recovery on LG Optimus L7:

  1. Download the attachment and unpack it in the root of your C: drive. It will create a folder C:\L7CWM.
  2. Make you have ‘USB Debugging’ enabled. Phone should be in “Charge only” mode.
  3. Plug your LG Optimus L7 to PC via USB cable.
  4. Open the folder c:\L7CWM and run the file Flash_Bootloader.bat – this will unlock the bootloader and the phone should restart
  5. Open again the same folder and run Flash_Recovery.bat – this will flash the new custom touch controlled recovery and phone should restart again.

If you want to use the recovery the simplest way – attached the phone via USB again and this time run Reboot2Recovery.bat file – the phone will restart, the LG logo will be displayed for a few seconds and the the phone will enter Recovery Mode.

I have a LG Optimus L7 P700.
Although I have 2.3gb internal mem free when i try to install certain apps like avg antivirus or lucky patcher it gives me the message “Insufficient storage available”. I have rooted based on your site’s instructions (KDZ etc)and worked fine.I have also installed Link2SD (with 2nd partition on SD) and moved most of the apps to the SD.
What can I try about this message?
