Hello,
Yesterday an update came up on my screen, I clicked "Install Now"
The phone restarted into CWM.
I am rooted ofcourse, and I'm really scared for my phone,
Is there anything to be done?

Which phone do you have?
Your phone is rooted, do you have a stock or custom ROM?

You should provide a little more information so people can help you.

No. But it looks like you flashed a borked file. Maybe the CM you installed has a wrong MD5, or you might have flashed a CM that's for a different G2. Either way, you can either push a new ROM zip into your phone to flash, or KDZ back to stock like the guy above me said. Good luck!

And don't worry, your phone is completely fine. But this should be a lesson to always perform a backup before ANY ROM flashing. :P

What I'd like to know is how did you get CWM in the first place? I've tried for a couple of hours with ROM Manager and the D802 is not supported even though it claims it is. All I get is the red triangle on top of the green android bot and what looks like 2.x CWM. Not sure since I'm new. But it only has about 5 options. No MOUNT, NO ADVANCED, Looks unsuitable for flashing a ROM. I saw this version the very first time I flashed a phone and I soft bricked the phone. It was a Nexus 4. I recovered but I'm not taking any chances and messing with that again. The only way I recovered was using Wugfresh. I need something like Wugfresh for my D802 where I can take those risk. I'm angry because I can't flash anything now. I've got 327 apps to get installed. No one wants to do that manually. It is really inconceivable that this phone which is still arguably the best in the world after 6 months is not supported the way it should be with recovery. Any help in getting CWM working would be greatly appreciated.

You should try to reverse back to stock.

I've found that on the forums for LG G2's.

The only thing you probably have to worry about is the data on your device since it is possible you have to wipe it. No worries on bricked device.

Well you might be looking in the aosp section where almost all roms are kk, because there are a lot of 4.2 roms they are either stock or flex base and the device does have custom recovery support on 4.2 jelly bean it's root and flash custom recovery, the problem right now is kk
