Here is a bit more information about my situation:
Started by rooting with the one click method, then installed twrp via one click and moved the 4 zip files from this rom thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2715408
to my phone in preparation for flashing the new custom rom.
went to flash the 24abootstack.zip via twrp, that failed, so i tried to do the a recovery via twrp, and that did nothing.
after that i found out i was able to get into download mode still
the phone doesn't show up correctly in device manager which means I cannot makee sure it is on com port 41 before trying to use the lg flash tool to flash the tot file.
The phone shows up in the category 'Andorid Phone' and its called 'USB Modem Phone ADB port in the device manager.
I have deleted all the drivers and re installed them also.
Im going on a week and a half without my phone and i really need it back!!
