Question [Q] Recovery (CM or TWRP) for LS980

I've got the Sprint LG G2 LS980. Yesterday I was able to root my phone using ioroot22 http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...96684400085360. But I've not been able to find a version of ClockworkMod or TWRP that is compatible with the ls980. Obviously I'm missing something - there wouldn't be a whole group dedicated to the development of ls980 ROMs if there was no way to flash them... I tried GooManager (Install OpenRecoveryScript), "No recoveries were found for your device". I tried Flashify: TWRP - "No recovery was found for your device"; CWM: "No recovery was found for your device". I've tried searching the forums and googling in general and am coming up empty... What am I missing?

Thanks for your help in advance!

I tried following the instructions at http://www.droidviews.com/root-and-i...e-bell-rogers/, substituting the recovery.img file you linked to instead of the one they reference in the twrp section, but it tells me "Input file is not a Loki image."

Are there any FAQs or wikis on how to do this stuff? I've never had this much trouble rooting and flashing roms on a phone before.

Thanks, I've got it working!

I'm having trouble with the power+volume down to boot recovery from a power off state... I've found I can reboot into recovery via flashify - but is there a simpler way? When I try the power+volume down, I still get the sprint logo, no matter how I try...

You can't be plugged in first of all.
Hold volume down and power until you see the LG LOGO let go and press volume down and power again.
It'll go to a factory reset screen which isn't going to factory reset but rather boot you into recovery.

Hit power 3 times.
And now your in recovery.

You can use xposed ( google xposed framework) install something like G2 xposed from the market get it all set up in xposed and reboot.
You should be able to set the option in g2 exposed to set an advanced power menu.
