Question How do you put a lg optimus m in recovery mode???

Ive rooted my optimus m and everything but so far i cant install any custom themes because i cant get it in recovery mode. Ive googled and all i have been able to find on the subject is you enter these codes in terminal and you hold the the home and lock and volume button which only factory resets it. Here is a video of what i want to achieve does anyone know how to do it skip to 1:50 to know what im talking about thanksss.

To put it into recovery if you installed it all you have to do is from power off press and hold power, volume down, and home untilled you see the recovery menu

There's a couple of apps as well, I have Quick Boot. I believe they all require root, but you said you already have that. If you have recovery installed (see the link in the thread above) then you just tap the app and it'll ask you if you want to reboot, boot to recovery, turn off and 1 other. It's a nice little app; makes it easier than trying to hold down 3 buttons at the same time. :-)

Your phone must be rooted. use this :
Finally Custom Recovery for 2.2.1 stock phones !!!!!!
(Custom recovery so you can get the roms you want)
here are the 2 roms i have used
My personal favorite
[ROM] [THEME] Sense Rom Optimus M
and the other one:
[rom] teamchickeneater 2.2.1
Everything you need are in the posts by joneidy.
Hope it helped!
