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 am currently having this issue. Has anyone found a way to get my phone back on so I can retrieve my info?

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?
