    So let me start from the beginning. I was running paranoid android for a bit and wanted a change. I flashed omnirom 4.4.4 07/18/2014 nightly but i forgot to flash the supersu zip. So i ended up with omnirom 4.4.4 unrooted. I freaked out a bit when i noticed today and immediately hit the system update button(omnirom nightly) to get to twrp as my hardware keys dont work for download mode or recovery, and quick boot wasn't working without root. Once i got to twrp i (still trippin a little) wiped data,system,cache and tried to flash back to Paranoid Android. Forgetting i hadn't flashed the su.zip. so now im left with a phone that does none of the following.
    1. Boot to recovery
    2. Boot to download mode
    3. Get recognized on the lg tool
    Please help me i would really like to use my phone on my birthday in 2 days.
    Please please please

    Welcome to the forums.
    You are going to need to look at a JTAG service to get you unbricked.

    Ok so i googled JTAG service. Does it matter if i can see the lg boot logo and get to the hardware key control mode screen? I will have no problem paying under $50 for the service but how safe is it to just send my phone to someone.

    I have never used a service like that before, so I am not sure what is involved. Is there any site where they send you the equipment?

    Still no luck guys. I did notice that my power and volume buttons dont work properly. Im thinking that might be why i cant get into download mode or recovery. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Are there any local repair shops you can take it to? Maybe calling LG?

    I live near fort knox and there's not really anywhere around where i can take it. Will LG help me knowing that i rooted and flashed custom roms? What if i just tell them that i did a system update would they be able to tell?
