Default [q] lg g2 d800 + twrp

Hello all.

Over the past few days, I have been attempting to install CyanogenMod on my LG G2, but I am currently stuck on getting TWRP to work properly. I have followed the steps (more than once) on the forum post here (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2449670), but it has yet to work. I either get the "fastboot" text screen (two lines), or (now) nothing more than a backlit screen. If anyone can help me with this, it would be much appreciated.

Info on the device:
Rooted
Model: LG-D800 (10o)

If anything else is needed, please let me know. I'd like to get this working.

Thanks
-C

I used this video to bypass all that fastboot nonsense.

Basically all you do is:

!Phone Must Be Rooted!

Download Recovery:
http://techerrata.com/file/twrp2/g2a....3.2-g2att.img

Download from the Google Play Market:
>Flashify (for root users)

Open flashify,
Click on 'Recovery image' and look for the recovery you downloaded,
Click on the recovery file,
Hit flash,
Hit Reboot and it'll reboot you into TWRP

And you're done!

Easiest way:

1)Back to stock
2)Root from here
3)One click recovery install once your rooted

I have been having a weird issue flashing the latest trwp versions over stock recovery on my D800, resulting in me booting to fastboot. Oddly, if I flash cwm recovery it works. then from cwm recovery I flash the twrp zip and then I am set. No idea why and I have been able to duplicate it. shrug

Any chance you could communicate the method you used to do this, at some point? I've tried flashing CWM as well, but I've had the same outcome as with TWRP. Would be awesome to get Cyanogenmod on here finally.

Thanks for the replies!

Have you tried the app Flashify, once you are rooted?
Alternatiely, I have put the recovery.img file in the root of my sdcard and then did:

adb shell
su
dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/recovery

Another app called Freegee will install either CWM or TWRP on there for you.
