Exclamation No Recovery, No adb (Windows) connection, only Download Mode!

I tried this http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2582142, everything worked as shown except it won't boot to recovery. The only thing it can do is to do download mode. No adb connection on Windows, it connects in Ubuntu terminal because I was able to do the instructions on the link above. But I don't seem to know how to do adb commands within Linux. Is there a way to fix my phone without going back to stock? Thanks!

Do you have a nandroid backup? If so the steps from stock to restoring a nandroid are moot.

Default SOLVED!

After redoing the root guide I found out that I can go to recovery by doing the down+power repeat combo. From there I was able to restore my Nandroid! Thank God! Fixed!!! By the way my phone got bricked by restoring an older dorimanx kernel using flashify app!

@tmoneybird

What recovery did you have?
Have you tried vol down+power buttons combo? This is how it's done: Press and hold the two buttons at the same time till you see the lg logo then release for about two seconds then press the two buttons again at the same time. Then a white screen will show which has in it the instruction to factory reset your phone. It will lead you to recovery mode. If this won't work there is a guide in the General section on how to flash TWRP using Linux Ubuntu http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2582142. Do this first then repeat the instructions above.
