Default HELP! I cannot boot into recovery

I was attempting to go from Malladus 1.2.9 to 2.0.0. I was running 12B and I thought I followed the directions. I created a Nandroid backup prior to doing anything. This is the steps I attempted to follow.
1. Created Nandroid backup using TWRP
2. wipe system/data/cache
3. flash vs980_1xx_to_24a.zip to prep for 4.4.x
4. flash malladus-vs980-2.0.zip
5. flash lg_apps_kk-20140408.zip
6. flash PAs GApps package

I received a message that step 4 failed. I then attempted to reboot into recovery to go back to my backup, but I just get a black screen. I also attempted to hold the vol- & power button to go into recovery, I get the warnings about factory reset, but then goes to a black screen.

I'm by no means an expert, but I've been running Malladus since 1.1.4 without issues. I need HELP and fast. Thanks in advance.

I had to use download mode to go back to stock then was able to install 2.0.0. I think it was because I was using an older version of TWRP.
