Okay thanks fellas. I'm running pacman and loving it. This morning I was on kk 4.4.2 OTA tmobile. I used towel root to root. Auto rec to install twrp. Backed up and flashed PAC man. I ran a rooted Droid Incredible from Verizon and a rooted HTC Rezound after that I have had this T Mobile LG g2 for a while but just got around to rooting it since the stock ROM started dragging ass this month.

If I power off, and hold power+voldown, release at logo screen, hold power+voldown again .. it will enter a screen that says Press power to confirm system/data reset, any other key to exit.

I rooted/flashed recovery on the latest OTA from tmo 4.4.2.

Can anyone instruct how to get into recovery without reinstalling autorec everytime just to push the "enter recovery" button? I haven't tried ADB REBOOT RECOVERY yet, but i am looking for a hardware based method of entering recovery at poweron, and/or a way to do it from within the phone itself.
In titanium backup, you can choose reboot, which gives an option to boot to recover.

Or you could simply download quick boot, give it su rights and use it to ten or directly into recovery!
If it were me (and it was once), I'd hit the quick boot app option first, just to be sure everything went smoothly and TWRP installed. Then you can probably trust the hardware button procedure. This is exactly what I did. It's the whole trust but verify thing. It said it worked, but I wanted to be sure before I chose hardware reset in a boot sequence. That **** still makes nervous.

Unhappy "Knock Code" doesn't work.

Manage to find a temporary fixes. I accessed hidden menu ang update touch firmware. But the thing is, instead of unlocking immediately the phone after tapping the code, its waking up the phone screen and need to tap the code again.
After updating touch firmware "knock on" works but "knock code" doesn't.

I used this feature cause it adds a good layer of security while being able to unlock it fast and without looking at the phone.

Does someone knows a way to fix this?
