    try turning off the phone, then press home+vol. down+power and hold it for a couple of seconds while phone boots. It should trigger the recovery.

    If it does not work refer to "custom optimus m recovery" thread in all root forum.

    yes, follow the link I posted, you have to read everything twice and make sure you do everything correctly, also if you have windows vista or win 7 I recommend turning off UAC

    I went to the site you recommended and it was asking me to do options I don't have. You have anything else I can do?
