Default Can't boot into twrp, help!

Hello! I rooted via ioroot, and installed twrp today with the app called "freegee". But when I try to boot into the twrp recovery the lg logo just go through 2 times before the phone starts and boot up (the phone is working fine), but I can't access twrp! 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).

how are you trying to boot into recovery? I myself can't get the button combination to work and use titanium backup or freegee to boot into recovery

One last question, when I take a nandroid, do I just backup my system, boot, and recovery to backup a working rom, or do I need to backup data too? Because my data is on 3,2 gb and I don't have space for that lol

You can also download TWRP manager and use the reboot option to boot into recovery. Don't have to try and time the hardware buttons.
