So i've been trying to sim unlock my ls980 for about 3 days now i've tried the > http://androidfannetwork.com/2014/03...lg-g2-for-gsm/ < guide aswell as ones that were just like it with more steps and nothing so i restored my phone through lg recovery and re-rooted
still searching for a way to gsm unlock the phone i stumbled on this thread
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2729370
yay i found it right ... wrong once i installed autorec everything was running fine until i actually tried to boot into recovery mode...
when i powered down my phone and went to turn it on i got pushed into fastboot hours i spent banging my head against my desk trying to get past this step... because recovery mode was gone and download was broken so i found a thread about flashing the laf file and bam download mode is now fixed.. great! but now no matter what i do my computer wont locate the drivers for me to try and connect to it and use lg flash tool or even lg's recovery tool i have unistalled re installed lgs united drivers over and over again on 2 different computers trying to get them to read the phone
i've tried going into device manager and pointing them to the lg folder nothing... i've been searching google trying to find an answer and found nothing that seems to help..

so if anyone has any ideas that would be helpful i would be really greatfull

The phone doesn't show up as a comport is the problem it shows up under other devices if I remember correctly with yellow exclamation marks. And I can't figure out how to get the drivers to read it
I've uninstalled them reinstalled them countless numbers of times I tried another computer different usb ports
I tried pointing the drivers to the LG folder and still,nothing

did you try the tmobile drivers? (after you install that, then go to the devices with the yellow and update drivers automatically, it should work
