    This is the stock recovery I pulled using online nandroid backup. It may be corrupted since this phone won't perform a factory reset. If someone wants to take a look at it maybe cwm can be built. Should have this phone for a week before sending it back so I'm willing to test anything out.

    The cwm recovery 6.0.2.8 for the LG Optimus L5 e610 works like a charm (radios and working Net10 service confirmed).  I have already soft bricked my phone with Titanium Backup and successfully restored my nandroid backup.

    Don't try to enter recovery (power + volume down + home, at LG logo release all buttons) until you have flashed cwm because the OEM recovery is merely a factory reset, and that's EXTREMEly frustrating when that happens without a nandroid backup.

    I'll try to write a walk-through and post my own archived downloads (I hate dead links) when I get a chance.

    I can verify this works, I dl the boot loader unlock file and cwm6028 from a thread on xda for the l5 e610 and flashed both from terminal emulator on phone using the dd if command, this phone available for net10 on eBay remanufactured for 30 bucks

    I was going to flash the last cm nightly for the l5 on my l40g just for fun, but I'm ready to test one of yours.
    It needs the cpu able to set at 1ghz if not 1.2ghz and maybe some memory performance tweaks.
