NVFlash is a powerful utility that works at a very low level on your phone. There are few safety mechanisms built into a tool like this because it is intended for use by people with suitable training. This CAN brick your device. It is unlikely to create an irrecoverable situation, but it does have the power to create a situation that you can not recover from yourself, thus requiring factory maintenance. Warranty coverage for your phone is not guaranteed after using NVFlash. Please proceed with the use of the tool carefully and at your own risk.

You should see it send a bunch of files to the device and the phone screen should say "S/W Upgrade - Please wait while upgrading...". You can let go of the volume buttons at this point. Once the files are sent and the program is finished running in the command window, you CAN just pull the USB cord or be safe and just wait a few extra minutes, however it will still say "upgrading."
To get into Recovery:
Plug the battery back in (or power off the device if it was on)
Hold Vol Down + Power until you see the LG splash screen with blue highlights (that means keep holding for ~10 seconds after you see the LG boot screen).
This is if you already have all the files and drivers set up: How to flash ClockworkMod Recovery 188.8.131.52:
CWM Touch is still experimental. Flash at your own risk. Do not expect much help if something goes wrong or does not work right, be prepared for some crisis management. Not everything works properly, but when it does work, it works pretty well. This has bugs. Do NOT flash this unless you know how to flash an alternate recovery if things go wrong.
