Default Can't enter download mode on T-Mobile LG G2 with stock 4.4.2

Hey,

I'm trying to root my T-Mobile LG G2 with stock 4.4.2, but the it just refuses to enter download mode. I've tried the standard method of entering download mode (powering down the phone, holding down the volume button, plugging in the USB cable from my computer), but only the LG logo appears on screen, then the battery percentage appears on screen, and then the phone begins to charge. I've tried using different USB cables and different PCs, but nothing seems to work.

Is there anything I'm doing wrong here? Any extra steps that need to be taken?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Do you mean hold power and volume up, plug phone in, let go of power and keep holding volume up, and then hold power and volume up again? I tried that, and the LG logo splashes on screen, disappears, splashes again, and then the screen goes black and the LED notification light blinks red. It doesn't pulse, like when it's charging, but it blinks a steady beat. It stops blinking and the phone boots up when I let go of the power and volume up buttons...

When I went into download mode, I only held the Volume Up button and plugged in the USB to the pc. I didn't hold power.

I'm on rooted 20e with custom recovery and I entered download mode no problem. Make sure you're pressing only the Volume Up button when plugging in the USB connected to the computer and hold it until you enter download mode.
