Default Bricked VZW G2

So I think I've bricked my G2 while updating with the latest update. Was rooted on stock ROM. Tried to install TWRP recovery but could never get into so, didn't think I had it installed. Installed VooDoo and took the update.

Well, my phone is stuck in a black screen. The LG logo comes on but I can't go anywhere from here. Can go into factory reset but it keeps coming back to the black screen. I've read all the forums and tried flash tool, fastboot, adb.... but no luck. My comp (Win 8) won't recognize the device and I get bunch of Local disks when I plug into USB.

I'm at a loss, total loss. I would really appreciate any help that I can get. Just want to get in hard drive and save some photos if I can't save the phone. Thanks!

Default fixing the black screen boot

google and install koush's universal adb driver.
once you have adb..shell into device
adb shell
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/misc
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/fota

you should be able to boot your phone now
as far as your recovery and root i dont know, this isnt my solution i dont know exactly who found it, but i watched autoprime talk a user thru this and booting up after in the #lg-g2 irc channel and thought i would put it here to help some folks.

any thanks or beer money should be directed to him or whomever he points to lol
good luck
vzw lg-g2 running stock 11a rooted i know lol go figure

if you have a question, i have an answer, accuracy,correctness or even relevance is far from guaranteed.

if you have a complaint, take it to Helen Waite.
