Hey guys,

I recently rooted and flashed my LG G2 D801 to the Dirty Unicorns 4.4.4 along with the JellyBean BaseBand (since I was on T-Mobile KitKat before).

I noticed that the usb connection to the PC wasn't working after the flash and thought I didn't properly clear everything. So I tried to flash the rom again only to end up clearing the internal data as well which had the rom on it. Now my phone is Bricked and I can't upload anything because the phone won't show up in Windows or Linux.

I CAN still however go into Download Mode and TWRP Recovery.

Tried to install the universal LG United Mobile Driver, phone still won't show up on PC.

Been scouring forums for a solution for a couple days but still can't find anything that will fix the issue.

What else can I do!?

Try this I was in your same situation and have D-801 and bricked my phone like 2 times(messing with it).
Just follow all the instructions from the site below and it should work.

Tried the first KDZ method first and tool said phone wasn't connected.

Switched to TOT method and Device manager didn't list my phone so I can't change to COM41.

This is even though I uninstalled the LG Drivers and re-installed them...

Download everything from the post itself, even the drivers and download the KitKat July 31 KDZ. Put phone in download mode and follow directions. Only 1st mode worked for me. So I suggest you try it a few times...

Hey guys, so ended up solving my issue around the phone not being recognized by the PC. Well, I decided today that I would try a different USB cord and whaddyaknoww the PC finally recognize/install the drivers so I could use the Flash tool with the KDZ method.

Thanks for the replies!
