So for some reason while working today my phone died and when I went to turn it on it went to TWRP recovery and wouldnt leave it no matter how many times I tried rebooting it. And of course to top it off I cant get it into to download mode to revert to stock and start over. When I hold the volume up and plug it in, again it goes straight to TWRP. Need some help please.


EDIT: In case anyone is having the same problem I had, I fixed it by following this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2451696 and had to use the terminal command inside of twrp.
Then it put my phone into a bootloop but I was able to enter download mode then so I followed this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2663369 to restore phone to factory. Hope this doenst happen to anyone but in case, there's how I fixed mine!

Did you put cm on it depending on your model lg may have pushed an update to your device with out your permission what is your model number if you took an ota I don't think side loading will help it may make it worse
