try unpluging the phone from pc and the turn off the phone. Then press vol up button and plug it to your pc. Wait fro a min and you should see some activity

This phone was the most pain in the ass to flash. Probably because of how each is separate from rooting to recovery to downgrading and flashing a rom, installing drivers and flashtool. Glad I am all done with all of these steps.

Try twrp 2.6.3.2. That is what I flashed first with adb and then flashed philz inside twrp. I had issues flashing 2.6.3.3 with adb and I did not use adb for Philz.

thanks...I did try at one time, but I'm going to try again. I'm on a totaly different PC and on the original LG image, so not sure why it won't go through

Using the 10d as well and I get the below error:

[+] loki_flash v2.0
[-] Input file is not a Loki image.
