Unhappy [Q] [LG Optimus e400] LG Logo on CWM Reboot Into Recovery

Used SuperOneClick 1.7 RageAgainstTheCage to root the phone.

Installed ROM Manager.

Downloaded "cm-9-20130929-NIGHTLY-e400.zip" from the CyanogenMod site.

Downloaded "gapps-ics-20120429-signed.zip" from goo.im.

Put phone into USB file mode.

Transferred the .zip's onto the SD card.

Went into ROM Manager.

Selected "Install ROM from SD Card".

Selected the CM9 .zip.

Confirmed the reboot.

It reboots and only shows the LG logo and sits there forever.

Holding the power button reboots the phone and it's back like it was.

SuperUser is installed and ROM Manager has SuperUser permissions.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

you 're already installed cwm recorevy? if yes, then go to cwm recovery (home + vol- + power) and wipe everything , reflash again.

Ok, so I removed the battery for about 30 seconds, then put it back in.

Held down the Home & Volume - & Power buttons.

The Menu and Back lights blinked.

I continued holding the buttons down for about a minute and a half, and the lights kept blinking. I assumed they would continue blinking forever, so I let go of the buttons.

The phone boots up to the lock screen like normal.

What am I missing?
====================
EDIT > I tried holding Home & Volume - & Power while on the Home screen, the Power Off menu came up, kept holding the buttons, the phone shut down and rebooted back to the lock screen like normal. So I guess it's still a no-go for me at this point.

EDIT 2 > According to other threads here some are having to unlock the bootloader. Where's a good place to start looking for how to do that if it's needed for this phone?

So I've been googling this crap for 3 days now, and it seems that my phone is just this magic piece of crap that will only show the LG logo while trying to do a hard reset or trying to get into recovery. I'm at my wit's end.

- Did you tried a hard reset ?
- Try also to remove battery and enter emergency mode.

Remove the battery and enter emergency mode? Instructions/key-combo for that?

I removed the battery, plugged it in via USB to PC, held down Vol Down, Vol Up, & Power (it was showing an animation that looked like it was showing me to put the back of the phone on), the animation goes away as I'm holding the buttons, the Menu and Back button lights started flashing quickly, I let go of the buttons, then it shows the LG Logo for a few seconds, then it shows the blue TracFone logo for a few seconds, then goes back to showing the animation again.

I got it using "adb reboot recovery". The problem was that the recovery wasn't properly pushed because of so little space on this phone. It's slightly different than the regular L3 e400's because of some reason. It's a Straight Talk LG Optimus Dynamic. Thanks for your replies.
