Does your phone start up? Or are you able to get into recovery? I can't remember.
When you installed adb, did you add it to PATH? If not, change to the directory adb is installed. Something like cd android-sdk/platform-tools. Yours may be different.
You can also try this. Uninstall the LG drivers. Reboot your computer. Install LG drivers again. Should be v3.10 I think. Reboot your computer. Also shut down your phone. And start it again.

Default Same Problem

I am stuck too with the exact same problem.

Presently I have installed/unistalled driver multiple times but it is not helping.

Can get adb to see my device. Since adb and fastboot commands are working it is not a PATH issue.

Installed 3.10.1 version of drivers since I am on Win8.

If adb can be made to detect my device .. I can push backup to the internalsd and simply restore the backup from cwm.

Presently my Internal memory is clean and unfortunately this device does not accept sd cards.

I'm not quite sure what you need, or are asking?

Thanks for reply engine95. I sorted it out while you replied.

My problem was that I was not getting adb to recognize my deivce in Windows. It used to show me LG-LS970 or android phone while in recovery or fastboot respectively. [I thought it was driver issue].

Now what I did is with LGNPST i installed TeenyBin with TWRP.

After doing this my PC detected the phone and i was able to connect with adb. I didnot change any drivers this time.

I did adb sideload and installed ROM and everything started working fine.

So the issue was Unlocked bootloader and recovery was not working correctly dont know for what reason.

Now I am happy.. All is well ..
