Thanks for the warning. I have a very superficial understanding of all this stuff, but as it stands for the G2 right now I'm pretty sure that the bootloader is only being bypassed and not technically unlocked. I could be all messed up though.
As for the recovery attempts... I tried the 2nd option of the TWRP thread (just pushing the recovery) and that didn't work. Tried the flashify zip method and that needs there to be a working recovery (duh) and I gave the CWM recovery a shot, all with no success.
Guess we'll just have to wait a few hours until someone gets something figured out. All I have really been using the recovery for is to flash the LGBrowser and Split view (both things I really like though).
