How to flash stock recovery on LG Optimus G (AT&T version/e970)?

I just sold my phone on eBay. So I followed the LGNPST instructions on XDA to Unroot, relock bootloader, & get back to stock firmware.

Everything seems to be working fine expect for the fact I can't get into Stock Recovery or fastboot screen. When I try to get into stock recovery/fastboot screen by pressing the power & Volume up buttons, the phone just starts up as normal instead.

I've tried the ADB method. When I put in the command "adb reboot-bootloader", the phone just starts up as normal instead. When I put in the command "adb reboot recovery", I get the icon of an Android robot laying down with a red triangle having an exclamation mark.
