    Could be that you don't actually have the recovery installed. Because as whyzor said using those key combos will get you into recovery mode. First the lg screen pops up then goes black for a bit then the recovery will pop up. Recovery mode is where you flash all that fun stuff so I'm guessing if it doesn't come up when you boot then I would guess its not installed.

    Did you use ROM Manager to flash the recovery or did you do it manually?

    I used rom manager I believe. If you download the free version of rom manager you will be able to flash the recovery using the app (its the first option in the menu).

    If this is a new phone and you used ROM Manager, that's your problem. You will have to flash another recovery / ROM manually using the instructions in the thread about fixing the black screen issue. It's right at the top of the forum.
