"With the device powered down, hold Volume Down & Power. When the LG logo appears release the buttons and then press them again. Then, press the Power button three times!" (from cyanogenmod wiki) doesn't work for me. I can't seem to figure out how to get to TWRP to restore my phone (currently in a boot loop).

Doesn't connect to adb either because the boot loop stops at LG logo and reboots.

How to Enter Recovery Mode on LG G2 (quick easy steps)

  1. Press the Volume Down and the Power Button at the same time, about 2-3 seconds until the LG Logo shows.
  2. When the LG Logo shows, release the buttons and then press and hold them again.
  3. Keep pressing the buttons until the Recovery Mode Menu displays.

Try This :

  • Turn off the device
  • Press and hold Volume Down key + Power Key about 6-7 seconds
  • Release Power key when LG logo appear
  • When still pressing Volume Down key, press Power key one more
  • Release Volume down key when Factory Data Reset menu appears

I think this should work, as this is the only way, it opens recovery mode.

Enter Recovery Mode Using adb.

If you are experiencing inconveniences rebooting in recovering mode using the Volume Down and Power buttons, then this method could help to ease the reboot process. It requires adb.

adb reboot recovery

I used it many times to restart the device in TeamWin Recovery Project, and worked like a charm.

  • On LG G2 ls980 I had to run adb shell and then run the command reboot recovery or it would just do a regular reboot for some reason.

From Android Geeks:

  1. First of all, take your phone and press the power button; the select “power off”.
  2. Wait while your phone is shutting down; wait a few seconds and then proceed.
  3. Now, press the volume down and power button at the same time for 2 or 3 seconds until the LG logo appears on the display.
  4. Then release the buttons and then press and hold them again.
  5. Keep pressing the buttons until the recovery mode menu will be displayed on your LG G2.
  6. That’s it.
  7. If you then want to go back to Android OS, just select “reboot system now”.
  • Unfortunately, this doesn't work for me. Is it because I am still using the stock ROM and am unrooted?
