The newest feature we are going to boast about is a touch enabled version of ClockworkMod Recovery which is available for the LG Optimus 4X HD. 


Step by step to install the ClockworkMod Recovery on LG Optimus 4X HD:

UPDATES: if you are installing an update , remember to press install recovery again, so the changes take effect.

  1. Get your LG Optimus 4X HD root’d, follow this guide here
  2. Download the attached zip to this post
  3. extract the apk from inside the downloaded zip file.
  4. install the LG-Optimus-4XHD-Recovery apk on your mobile
  5. after installation reboot mobile once (if you do not, the app might fail installing recovery)
  6. start the LG 4X Recovery app
  7. press – Install recovery – grant superuser access when prompted
  8. wait for success OK, if it fails, something is wrong or SU is not properly installed or denied su access. you should set permissions to granted for this app
  9. after successfull installation, you can press boot recovery and boot into the clockworkmod recovery and make your backups or install custom roms
  10. when you do a backup, remember that CWM v6.0.1.1 got a bug, so you need to specifically chose backup to external sdcard for now.

You should now have the newest touch-enabled recovery on your device.  If you want to go back to regular ClockworkMod, you can easily do so by flashing it through ROM Manager.  Have fun!
