Install ClockworkMod Recovery On LG Thrill 4G [Guide]

In case you have already acquired root on your LG Thrill 4G, then you can now install ClockworkMod Recovery. Kudos to designgrears, senior XDA member and ROM / Android developer, for this extraordinary achievement. For now, Nandroid is working fine in this custom ClockworkMod Recovery image for LG Thrill along with ADB access. More important features like flashing Zip files, Wipe, Factory Reset and other toggles do not work for now. We believe that the developer will soon release a version that will come with all these goodies and functionalities as working.
