Happy New Year!

Credit to those whose posts gave me all the necessary information and programs to do this. Namely, those who've done this very same thing before. Sorry, in a hurry at the moment to post this, will credit by name later. Thank you to those concerned!

The latest stock ROM, v23A, made for the Verizon LG G Pad 8.3 model VK810.4G, also called "altev" in KDZ format, which is flashable via the Windows utility "LG Flash Tool 2014 - Tools Offline KDZ Flash Rom for LG".

The KDZ file is in a zip, so you'll have to extract it. It is NOT a flashable zip.

MD5 Hashes:

Zip: 6dcd2682c576f89df5c26c98687335d8
KDZ: DDA04A50A86100F16AC48C5BCDC76077

Any current and future files for this and other devices will be available in my section on Android File Host.

I obtained the KDZ file for 23A by:

1. Installing the latest LG drivers for Verizon LG_VZW_United_WHQL_v2.18.0.exe (I'll link later).
2. Finding and running LGMLauncher.exe (I'll link later).
3. Connecting the VK810.4G to the PC via USB and choosing Internet-Ethernet mode.
4. Opening the menu in the upper right corner and choosing "Update Recovery".
5. When the download and update on the tablet were done, then I could find the KDZ file in "C:\ProgramData\LGMOBILEAX\Phone".

Every time I go to thank your post I happen to not be on TapaTalk and over my 8 Thanks limit. Thanks for confirming.

Hi! The page I linked to for [URL=" Flash Tool 2014 - Tools Offline KDZ Flash Rom for LG[/URL] has the directions and screenshots. I know the language is in Vietnamese. Google Chrome (at least on the PC, but I believe on Android too) will translate the word directions closely enough, and for what doesn't get translated because it's text in a picture won't matter because the screenshots make it pretty clear what to do. It's pretty easy, I've done it a couple of times.

I'm not seeing the link for the KDZ file on the page. I used the translate option but maybe I'm blind. I looked around and found this:

https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=95864024717073362

Is this the right file?

Yep, that's my file as you can tell by the MD5 hashes matching those in my post. My link is at the end of the line:

I'll try to make it stand out more. Thanks!

Thanks. So basically just to dumb it out. What I should be doing is:

Install the LGUnitedMobileDriver_S50MAN311AP22_ML_WHQL_Ver_3.1 1.3.exe file.
Download and install the LG Flash Tool 2014.zip file.
Which files get copied into the KDZ 2014 LG Flash Tool folder?
Connect the phone to the computer. (Are we supposed to use ethernet mode ?)
LGFlashTool2014.exe

Does that sound right? Sorry for the dumb questions. I've set my G2 back a ton of times using the Verizon only method. I've never done it with the tablet and it seems like it's done differently.

Any help would be very appreciated.

Just going by memory at the moment - I'm at work so I have to hurry. Yes, it all sounds right except the driver. If I remember correctly, the Verizon variant of the G3 uses a different set of drivers, I think it's mentioned on that LGFlashTool2014 page, right after it mentions the one you said. They're probably saying to copy the KDZ to the flash tool folder, but I think you can just browse to wherever you have it on the same PC from the tool anyway.

Yes, ethernet mode.

It was flawless. The only thing is that I did the CSE flash and I was able to root but I'm not sure how to get TWRP back. I tried following the thread but ran into issues. I can't remember what it was. So basically I did it twice and now I am fully stock unrooted.
