Hello.

I have an LG G2 802 that i managed to royally screw up last night, I was about to install the new firmware update for my phone, completely forgetting that i had a custom rom installed on it. After the firmware update was finished downloading, the phone rebooted into TWRP and would not boot normally after that, could not boot into the previous custom rom i had installed... I decided to wipe all the data, and try to use an old backup i had laying on the internal storage, got to it, wiped all data and started recovering the old backup. But the revovery wasn't working properly and it gave me an error, after fiddling around with TWRP a little more, i went into wipe -> advanced wipe -> and wiped everything, because i had an idea that i could just force a new rom over by ADB from my PC, and this all resulted in that I have no operating system, the phone boots into TWRP all the time, I've tried to hard reset it, but it just boots into TWRP whatever i do

Please help

Just flash a new KDZ over it. And next time check XDA if someone had the same problem as you and you will find the solution.

I've done a quick search about flashing a new kdz, and they involve getting into download mode, I can't access download mode, it just sends me to TWRP no matter what i do

Are you able to boot into download mode?

Ok Hold the power button until the phone flashes twice and then let go off the power button. When it's off, hold volume up and then connect it to USB simultaneously.

Tried it, it turns off, then the notification light at the top of the phone (beside the front camera) blinks 8 times if i constantly hold the volume up and power button, as soon as i release power button and volume up, the phone boots with the LG logo and then goes into TWRP.

What he meant was, hold the Volume Up button & connect the phone to your PC. Don't have to hold power button at all. Try this mate.

When the notification LED starts to blink, let go of both buttons for a split second and hold them back again. Make sure USB is connected. Since you have TWRP working, Download should also be available.

The problem is that you have to have the phone off to even attempt to get in to download mode.

For those who have similar issues, I did the below steps:
1. While connected to computer in CWM recovery, install the drivers via PdaNet (these replace any original LG drivers)
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1983470

2. Connect to phone via ADB while still connected in CWM recovery (see below ADB download if you didn't already have it or forgot where it was)
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2317790

3. While connected via ADB you can use the same method as in the below thread (use the first one).
