the link below will allow you to revert back to stock unrooted 11A.

after that you can take the OTA to 12B, reroot via IORoot and then use FreeGee to install recovery of your choice.

This has saved my phone a couple times from me getting too cocky with screwing around with things i don't fully understand but think I do.

Hmm OK. At work now, I will look into it when I get home. Just throwing this out there cause it caught me, you just press the volume up button, hold it down, then plug in the USB cable with the LG flash tool open and configured. I kept holding the power button down as well.

Reread the thread there is a file you need to replace that corrects that. Uninstall it, reinstall, replace the file and then attempt to open.
