yes, either use Lg Mobile Support Tool to go back to full stock (recovery and rom) or flash TWRP or flash the original recovery which you can find in this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2554121

It seems that the 3rd method doesn't work. I got this error "Secure Booting Error! Cause: boot certification verify" too. My g pad tried to boot forever stuck in there, until I plugged it in the usb and was unstuck or something. Then I tried UP/DOWN + POWER key combinations but both failed to boot. By pressing only the POWER button it boots normally back to the ROM.

Any ideas? I really don't wanna mess up with adb, fastboot etc, but it seems that its kinda unavoidable.

ok first of all is that the message you get http://i42.tinypic.com/5n7psj.jpg ? I get this message every time i boot into recovery (i have twrp atm) and it's normal, it means that loki is working. Now about the key combo, it works and you can enter recovery, it's a little tricky though. Keep pressing the vol down (you will keep it pressed down until the end ) and then keep pressing the power button. When the lg logo appears release the power button only for 0.5 or 1 second and then press power and vol up at the same time (so you are actually pressing all 3 buttons). It works, it just need some practice.

Did you actually manage to flash philz touch recovery? What recovery you have now?

In case you want to use adb just download and install minimal adb ( http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2317790 ) if you dont want to mess with google's sdk tools. Put loki_flash and recovery.img inside the folder where you have installed adb, press shift+right click->open command window here and follow the instructions from here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2551499 . Plz also make sure to replace twrp.lok with the name of the recovery you want to flash, in this situation its recovery.img. Its a very easy process and loki wont let you flash the recovery.img if it isnt suitable for your tablet.

Thank you for the detailed reply (patrioti ). I am not getting the exact same error with yours.

I am getting this: Secure Booting Error! Cause: boot certification verify

Actually I had this error the first time after I flashed the recovery.img with Flashify. After that if I try the above combos, my tablet just displays the LG logo and then turns off.
I am not sure if I am doing anything wrong, but this case is very possible . Did you try the 3rd method by yourself and worked?

I guess I will have to deal with the adb method soon

Edit:

I tried the adb method too. Unfortunately, I got the same error ! Also I got this loki error: http://prntscr.com/2gip3b
Is that normal?
It seems that the .img is being flashed properly but for some reason it won't let it boot into the recovery mode.
I will now check the dev options maybe there is one that blocks it or something..

Edit2:

I just installed TWRP for now. Looks good, so I have a recovery mode

I installed philz from twrp recovery as a zip file and then went back to twrp, i havent tried 2nd and 3rd methods but they should work. I installed twrp with adb and other users verified that the flashify app is working so i cant see why they shouldnt work here.

About the loki error in adb did you use the loki_flash from twrp's thread or the one that was included in philz touch zip? I hope that someone else might be able to answer your questions. At least you managed to install a custom recovery!

I used the loki_flash that was included in the philz touch zip - I think so

I will tomorrow try installing it via the TWRP recovery then

Thanks for all the replies.

Failed MD5 check
I flashed the KitKat rom having first done a nandroid backup using this CWM in recovery. I'm happy with the kitkat rom but I wanted to go back to my backed up stock rom to test something out... md5 mismatch... To resolve this in the end number 1 in this link sorted things out.. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2164133

maybe I have to update lokify in my zip installer
Also, since my zip installer will lokify the image, if you flash using cwm, ensure you disable auto-loki in settings to avoid the 2x lokifying, if ever possible, not sure how it behaves in that case

Read the FAQ please how I implemented things. The recovery.img in zip is not lokified. It is done during flash through shell script in installer.
That way, unlocked bootloader owners can still use the recovery.img
