The first CWM i installed (on a different phone) came baked into the ROM zip. That has been my experience ever since. Recently the Developer changed it to TWRP Recovery also by putting into the ROM as un "upgrade". Maybe you can contact Vache to have it in his ROMs

You can flash it from a booted phone using adb (assuming you have cwm img on your internal memory) :

adb shell dd if=/sdcard/cwm.img of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/recovery

Yes it works. Go on Acer Tool 0.3 and select option 4. Make sure you have usb debugging on. after that open cmd and type
(but first put cwm recovery on sdcard (internal memory ) and rename it in : cwm.img

Type this command in cmd and you're done!
adb shell dd if=/sdcard/cwm.img of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/recovery

OK thanks.Hmm, so we don't have RW permisions always? Or this method works on locked type1 only rooted as well? I red smth but i don't remember if you guys managed to make RW permisions permanent?

The part where some apps/core functions "call" the internal memory SD Card and the actual microSD card External is the most stupid thing i have seen on an Android phone.

I managed to make cwm and root permanent using Vache's adb shell dd comand

Would the following work: first copy the CWM image to /external_sd, then use something like Rom Toolbox to replace the original boot image, or am I thinking to simplistic?

I tried this method, the command is successful. But when I tried to boot into recovery, the following message appears.

Recovery image verified failed!
bootmode: fastboot!

I then tried other method I found on the net

adb reboot bootloader
fastboot -i 0x0502 flash recovery CWM-6.0.1.5_S500.img

The following message appears.

sending 'recovery' (6306 KB)... OKAY
writing 'recovery'... FAILED (remote: Due to device is fused, non-merged file is
not supported)

Any idea what went wrong?

Is there a way to restore the original recovery image?
