Default LG G2 D801 unable to get to download mode

I recently put TWRP on my LG G2 from Tmobile (D801). I then used it to flash CyanogenMod 10.2. It worked great. Then I decided to see if any other ROMS were available.

I downloaded AEON v3.zip (which I now realize was for D800) and tried to flash it from TWRP. It (obviously) didn't work as I expected, and now I can't get the phone into recovery mode. When I try to get it into the download mode (volume up+plugging in USB), the download mode screen flashes up for a second, but then it just goes to the Fastboot mode started /udc_start() screen.

It appears that I can use the fastboot utility on my computer to interact with the phone. fastboot devices -l results in a question mark (it says "? fastboot").

I've tried downloading openrecovery-twrp-2.6.3.2-g2tmo.img and flashing it to my device with:

fastboot flash recovery openrecovery-twrp-2.6.3.2-g2tmo.img

It indicates that it is successful ("OK") but I still cannot get into recovery mode.

Help?

Try downloading an app from The Play store called Quick Boot, it should let you reboot into recovery. Also, I'd imagine CM has a feature that allows you to boot into recovery from the power menu when you hold your power button down for a sec.

Default solved

Thanks for the reply! I didn't have a working ROM to boot into, so I was just trying to get into Recovery mode to begin with.

Got some help from autoprime on #lg-g2 and found out that I was using the wrong timing on my recovery mode key presses to get into TWRP.
