Default Factory reset without recovery?

I've flashed the new Vodafone Germany 20B rom, with this rom you can't access recovery/rteset mode. Rom booted but is stuck in a mass of force closes. I can't factory reset as i can't get through the menus. ADB can't find the device... Any ideas at all?

Pretty dsure a factory reset would fix it.
Very hungry. I want Gingerbread.

You should be able to use the stock bootloader Factory reset.

Power off by holding the power button down for about 15 secs. Hold the power button and Vol down until the LG logo appears, then release both briefly and press both again. Follow the on-screen instructions.

Moto G 16GB (Good noddy phone for Mrs Ash)
Sony Xperia ZL - Actually better than the Z for me - and LOUD! (daughter 1)
LG G2 d802 - rooted Stock 80220C with Bloat removed (daughter 2)
Sony Xperia Z2 - rooted stock (me)
iPAD 2 - was good in 2011, now seems a bit pants!

Read my post again :P Unfortunately that button combo doesn't work anymore on this update. I tried multiple button combinations with no luck.

In the end i downgraded to a Jellybean KDZ, still got the force closes but this time i could reset using the button combo. Then updated to the German Voda release.

Just a warning for anyone updating to it... Make a full factory reset/data wipe first or you may end up in my situation!

Read your post again - sorry can't see any reference to hardware/physical buttons.

Anyhow - glad you sorted it.
