So after i installed the ATT update today my phone rebooted and went straight to the CWM based recovery screen. So i decided to start fresh and i did a factory reset. Now win8.1 won't recognize my phone. I've downloaded the latest driver from LG but that didn't help. Please help! This is my only phone and i have a sick mother who might call if she needs me!

Is it in cwm still? For it to be recognized in cwm you need all the adb/SDK tools I believe

Might be stupid question but you didn't have plugged into comp while installing did you? Stupid question 2: did you restart computer?

If you had phone plugged in while installing drivers you shouldn't have. Plug in, find exclamation point, find drivers manually. Probably won't work. Right click, uninstall, unplug phone, install drivers again, restart comp plug in phone should work
