Default Bricked Sprint LG G3

So I've done it . I'm not sure if the LG Flash tool works for Sprint but if so where can I find the firmware files for ZV4? I would appreciate any help. Thanks

Check out THIS guide by fergie716. Pay real close attention to number 17, make sure you change action mode to board dl. Read the WHOLE guide, a few times, before you try to unbrick your phone. HERE is your tot and dll files. You will need to unzip the zip file to get your tot file from it. DO NOT try to use the zip file, you need the .tot file from within it. The dll file is not zipped, so use it as it stands. Let me know if you have any questions. HERE is an image to help.

Trust me, it took me several hours of hair pulling out to figure out that I didnt have action mode set to board dl, which pushes firmware to the circuit board, the other setting seems to be for upgrading firmware through LG flashtool. Many people are changing their build prop without knowing that after you save it, its truncating or shortening it. When you reboot phone, its seeing the shortened version, which softbricks the phone.

Well that did the trick. It toon forever cause i only had a mac to work with so i had to virtualbox windows 7 to get flashtool to work. But for me some of the steps werent in order. The phone didnt send the drivers still i did the unplug for 5 secs. Once i plugged it back in then it i stalled the drivers so i could change the com to 41.but once i did that. It flashed the tot. And really. I like this version better cause the other i couldnt change the boot animation but i saw that this version booted it the international boot animation so i was able to successfully change it. Big thanks to you Joey. Big thanks for saving my ass. lol
