So, just updated with Malladus to 4.4.2 on Malladus 2.0.2, everything is fine with phone and running good. I did the unroot and then re root method. And now that I have malladus, I can boot into recovery. So technically I do not have any issues that are messing up my phone per se. But the thing is, the booting into the recovery the way it should work, with the phone off and then power and holding volume, letting go, and then re engaging with LG Logo appears does not get me into recovery. It did not before I even flashed Malladus, so I know it is not that. I got into recovery only because of flashify, and I was able to boot into. But shouldn't the volume down plus power method work? I can't figure out the reason it is not...Anyone know?

The power on/volume down method takes you to a screen to do a factory reset, follow the instructions on the screen and it will take you to your recovery if you have one installed. Don't if you're on stock recovery cause you'll just wipe your phone.

steps to enter recovery that worked for my Sprint LG G2 on ZVC firmware.
1) hold power and vol down till you see LG logo -- immediately release these buttons and
2) immediately hold power and vol up button to enter into factory reset menu.
Then 3 presses of power key to confirm wipe and enter TWRP recovery.

I was going mad trying to enter recovery. It appears like different models/software versions have different key combinations for entering recovery mode.
