Default [Q] Going back to factory, memory wipe issue

So I am using LGNPST to flash my phone back to stock and have like it was out of the box. I am currently on ZVB with no root or unlocked bootloader. I really want to wipe everything clean so I tried to go into the main menu by holding VOL Down and Power. I'm supposed to press enter on the option to wipe which I'm assuming is the power button but nothing happens. I'm honestly not sure what to do. Is there any other way to wipe my internals clean?

Use the LG flash tool, does exactly that. Can be a pain in the ass to set up though. It takes the phone all the way to where is not even activated. Just look around the forums, think engine95 has a link to the thread that has it in one of his guides

In stock recovery, the capacitive menu key is the select, not the usual power button. So the far right key.

Didn't see that coming, that was my problem assuming the power button was supposed to be select. Thank you!
