Default trouble with Recovery

I am trying to help my friend root and put CM11 on his LG G2 ATT. I have it rooted now, but I tried to install Recovery and it did not work. I then tried to flash it with RomManager from within the app, it says it is correctly flashing(at least there is no error) but when I reboot into recovery I see this error briefly followed by black screen and lockup. I have to hold down power button to get it to reboot normally. I have no recovery at all now it seems. And I don't know how to get into Fastboot on his phone either. Any help would be awesome! I am attaching the error.

I *think* after google search that I may need to manually unlock the bootloader. I was able to root just fine without doing that, but I don't see any post anywhere about how to unlock my bootloader. How do I do this? I've done it on my Nexus devices before but never this phone.

Currently there is no way to unlock the bootloader, but instead you need a lokified recovery. The recovery you flashed isn't lokified, I'd recommend to follow this guide: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2449670
It should also works if you want to use cwm instead
