Exclamation [Recovery, Button combo] Booting into recovery


just was in need for booting into recovery because the (newly flashed) ROM was stuck at boot animation, screen turned off and the device got hot (some kind of loop) - so

The button combo in following video worked perfectly:

I'll (review) and write the combo down once I need it again

but if I remember correctly it was:

1) Volume Down + Power button

until you see the LG logo

2) hold Volume Down, release Power button

3) Volume Down & Up + Power button

4) now confirm the appearing question or message twice with the Power button

4) a) Power button

4) b) Power button

hope that helps
