Yes. However, out of curiosity I just flashed the 2.2 recovery. Use the fastboot method, it's very simple. Naturally remember to replace recovery-RA_GNM_1.13.img with recovery-RA_GNM_1.2.2.img

2) Setup fastboot drivers. Copy these lines into your android_winusb.inf in usb drivers in android sdk or use my kit that is linked above. They go in 2 places x86 (up top) and amd (lower part).

;LG Ally
%SingleAdbInterface%     = USB_Install, USB\VID_1004&PID_618E&MI_01
;%CompositeAdbInterface%     = USB Install, USB\VID_1004&PID_618E&REV_0100&MI_01
%SingleBootLoaderInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_18D1&PID_D00D
3) Issue command adb reboot-bootloader from command prompt and your phone will reboot to a blue screen that says Fastboot. Goto device manager and you should see an android listing that is unknown. Right click and update driver and select browse for driver then let me pick from list of drivers on my computer. If you see android bootloader interface pick it and you are good. If not use have disk and browse to android_winusb.inf and you should see the android bootloader interface.

4) Issue command fastboot reboot to test if its working. Phone should reboot and then do adb reboot-bootloader.

5) Place recovery-RA_GNM_1.13.img in android sdk tools folder and give command
 fastboot boot recovery-RA_GNM_1.13.img
6) Once it reboots into my recovery use adb shell and once you get root # prompt type
/ # mount /sdcard
/ # flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-RA_GNM_1.13.img
/ # umount /sdcard
/ # reboot
7) Power phone off then boot holding SEND+MENU+PWR and let go when you see the LG logo

8) If it reboots to stock recovery which is a android guy and a yellow "!" or if you have tried it a few times and know you released the keys when you see the LG logo and you got nothing just the VZW splash then do this:

If you used flash_image and the above happens use this from my recovery (not stock) adb shell:

/ # mount system

/ # cd system/etc

/ # mv /system/etc/ /system/etc/

/ # umount system

/ # mount /sdcard

/ # flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-RA_GNM_1.13.img

/ # umount /sdcard

/ # reboot
