    Code (Text):
    1. adb reboot recovery
    brings me to recovery

    Code (Text):
    1. adb reboot bootloader
    just reboots the phone

    I'm not finding anyone else with these issues? How can I get to bootloader/fastboot mode?

    Hmmmm, did you update to ZV9? Maybe they made the bootloader no longer accessible? On my optimus M it's only accessible by flashing a bad recovery...

    The v with ZV5 has the bootloader locked so you can't get to fastboot and stuff. You have to root the phone and use Flash_image to install a custom recovery.

    I think ZV4 is, but im not sure I have never owned a zv4 ov. They don't sell them with zv4 anymore.

    What for? No one wanted to install the zv9. He/she was asking a questoin about bootloader.

    If you read the guide then you would understand why I said to follow the guide. The Guide is for rooting via flashing a custom recovery on stock zv9. he/she wants to install a custom recovery before rooting and the guide for flashing the recovery well work on zv4 ans zv5.

    Read the 3rd post. He/she does want to root but via bootloader.

    Lol, he/she is a he...

    Yeah, rooting isn't an issue... I was hoping to boot into cwm from the bootloader and make a 100% stock backup before. I started. It's all good though and thanks everyone for the help!

    There are two stock nandroid backups in the all things root guide, the title is something like return to stock and unroot.
