    nOOb here so please excuse my stupidity.

    I rooted my Spectrum using LG Spectrum ICS.zip.

    Superuser and Rom Manager just keep "stop working". I can't get into CWM recovery ( I want to make a back-up before proceeding and I can't.

    I found one post (can't remember where) that said SpectrumPwnageTool should be used to root the phone to avoid some of these problems.

    Can I run SpectrumPwnageTool now after the phone is rooted?

    Another question is what is the key sequence to get into recovery mode? Is volume - plus power until the LG recovery Screen and then power x 3 correct?
    What exactly does the LG recovery screen look like???

    thanks :)

    Yes you can use the PwnageTool the script will ask you if you're rooted already say yes to it and you're good to go .
    Recovery: power off, hold down Volume Down+ Power and power 3X at factory reset screen .
    Hope it helped .

    You have to run the pwnage tool to unlock the boot loader, CWM won't work otherwise.
