ok everyone, this was not an easy task to accomplish but i have a working recovery system a phone that frankly didnt have one to begin with.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

1) Download

2) Download

3) Download AnyTerminal Emulator from the play store
4) Download your favorite file manager (MUST ALLOW YOU TO REMOUNT THE SYSTEM) i use Root Explorer


Now that you have all of that fun stuff downloaded move the flash_image and LGL75c-recovery.img files to the ROOT of your sdcard.

open up Root Explorer and move flash_image to /system/bin (this is where you have to remount as writable). hit the home button on your phone and open up the Terminal Emulator. type everything exactly as i do, press enter\return after each line!!!

Code:
su
cd /system/bin
chmod 0755 flash_image
cd/
flash_image recovery /sdcard/LGL75c_recovery.img

if you get an error start over otherwise if you end up with --> # <-- then your good to go!


Accessing Recovery

to get into recovery mode first make sure the phone is turned off. then you simply hold down the following keys in this order(volume down, home, and power). once you see the "LG" logo you can release the power button but keep holding volume down and home till Recovery loads...

hope you enjoy it

HAPPY FLASHING!!!

if you have flashed this then you know it has some issues... although they arent sevier or leaving you with the possibility of a brick it does still make nandroid backups but im sorry to everyone who grabbed a copy but i would like everyone to know i am working to find a fix as fast as possible! please keep in mind that i have two kids and just started a new job so it may be alittle bit but i will try my hardest to get it out as fast as possible and will do FULL Alpha/Beta testing next time before i post anything else!!!

again i am truely sorry for anyone who got the messed up version of this.
