Location [Q] Urgent help! update auto installed, and bricked my phone.

I have the Lg g2 D800 varient, and tonight I got an update for 15.4mb, that pushed without my permission, and now my screen is on a black screen, upon rebooting after said update was installed. I am rooted, but no plans to update to 4.4, it just did it without consent..

Help?

Edit:

Stuck on a bootloop, the LG logo flashes for a second, then its a lighted black screen. I plug my phone inot the pc, and 20 windows popup asking If I want to format G drive.

No twrp installed.



Current:
AT&T LG G2 32gb rooted on StraightTalk
Looking to trade to a white varient!

No custom recovery, or twrp. I tried to install those last week, but I was unsucessful, and stuck with root for now. No download mode at the moment, I tried to enter it, and my phones lg logo flashed for a second before going to the black screen.

you can try this but you need Ubuntu and I'm not exactly sure it will work(also you need to find the correct files for your model), also if your phone is under warranty you can try taking it to att store and telling them update killed your phone but of course don't mention anything about root

sorry forgot to put actual link http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2582142

Only because Im ignorant in learning how to flash, I came from iOS, and I'm still learning. I just want my phone back on at this point. I only rooted, and a silly update from att downloaded while I was rooted, and It auto rebooted into an LG logo flash, followed by a black screen.

Ah, yeah, I cant even get into the factory hard reset. It just turns off and on to a black screen. Thank you for your help, though.

Im freaking out, -_-. I regret for even allowing it to update, I should have tried to turn the phone off.
