    To make a backup, you need Recovery; To install recovery, you need fastboot & The fastboot enabled ROM doesn't work properly. So, It's useless to make a backup lol

    But, If you want to, First install a fastboot enable ROM (Instructions in "Instructions to install ROM with Fastboot:" in this thread )

    Then follow the instruction is "ClockworkMod Recovery:" but use this recovery image. After you have install Recovery, hold the Home button whilst powering on, keep holding it while the LG logo appears, it'll then take you to the ClockworkMod Recovery screen... Use the volume up & volume down buttons to navigate around the menu, the call button to 'click' or 'enter' and the power button to go back... Go to "Backup & Recovery" & select "Backup" to make a backup & wait... Done! :D
