Can I just try to flash twrp in flashify and try that?
Btw I do have root, I have checked it
Any help is appreciated!
I tried all the hardware combinations suggested on the forum, but was unable to boot into TWRP (using CM11's advance reboot to get into recovery does work).
After LOTS of experimentation, I was able to get into TWRP using the hardware buttons by doing this:
Power Off entirely
Boot by pressing Power + Vol-Down
... wait for LG logo to come up, but dont let go of the buttons [this is where my attempt differed from the other instructions that suggested letting go of Power + Vol-Down and pressing it again]
LG logo will very quickly go away and the screen will be off again
THEN start it up by pressing Power + Vol-Up [normally Vol-Up is for download mode]
It will show the factory reset screen ... press the power button 3 times, and it will go into recovery
I don't know why the above method worked for me, or if this will work for you (or anyone else), but this is the only way I was able to get into recovery. In case it's relevant, I have an LS980 (Sprint).
