So I just flashed CyanogenMod 11 on LG G2 and forgotbto flash GApps on my phone and when I try folowwing CyanogenMod steps to booting into recovery mode it won't and it just boots back into the operating system. I think Clockworkmod got deleted when I flashed the operating system. So I can't install it without gapps and I need my apps! Please help me. You contact me from my email joshuacurey@gmail.com or message me on here.

Just because you can't get to recovery does not necessarily mean you lost root access. They are not one and the same. LGs are kind of finicky about recovery, If the built in reboot to recovery option from the Power menu is not working, you can try an app like QuickBoot or via adb commands from the computer, or via the hardware buttons like so: http://itechtriad.com/articles/2014/...e#.U14kH_ldWSo

If you actually have lost your recovery (which is unlikely because CM would not change that), and still have root access when booted up with CM - you should - then grab Flashify from the Play Store, put your favorite recovery img file on your storage of the phone, and use Flashify to install the recovery for you. Very easy.
