Root and Install ClockworkMod Recovery on LG Revolution

One thing that can be said about LG’s Revolution is that it cannot compete with the company’s newest handsets. And not by far, we might add. And yet, there are many who like it and get it for their personal use. So for those in particular we conceived a guide on how to root and install ClockworkMod Recovery on it. That way, the handset is going to be capable of much more than it currently is.

To make sure that this tutorial addresses the right model, you need to check if your LG Revolution is the one that uses the Android Gingerbread OS and also the one which works closely with Verizon. Should your operating system be older, no problem; you can always get an upgrade with the help of the following: LG Mobile Support Tool.

Then get the drivers that are needed for such a device on your laptop. For the latter you have to run LG VZW_United_WHQL_v2.3.1.exe from a folder we’ll indicate in step 1 of our guide below.LG-Revolution
