Storage LG update bricked the phone. Stuck at cwm

I have a rooted d802 with stock rom. All was just fine and i noticed there was an update available from LG... categorized: under system/app update.

I downloaded it and as soon as it restarted my phone, it came to the recovery screen... and it is there... i tried rebooting, hard reboot, fiddle around with options that cwm offers me but nothing seems to be working...

Has anyone else had the issue? I do i get my phone to reboot ..? I know i can just download another rom and flash it through cwm but im quite happy with the stock and would like to get my phone back with minimum effort and more importantly data loss. I have no backups whatsoever.


Any help will be highly appreciated.

Or try pushing a ROM using adb.

You won't lose internal by pushing a ROM. The flash tool will. I don't think there is a way to just make it go back to the way it was.

Thank you.. I am stuck here : 4) Power off your G2, press Volume Up & and then plug in the usb cable (enter to a download mode)

As it wont take me to download mod ... no matter what combination of keys i press, it takes me to the same CWM recovery window.

I have never pushed a rom using ADB... Any tutorial for that? I tried searching but nothing relevant has came up.

This thread helped me month ago.
1. You need to install Koush Universal ADB Driver for LG G2.
2. Connect your G2 with ADB. With that universal driver ADB will find your phone.
3. And after you have ADB access, run this:
Code:
adb shell
dd if=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/fota of=/sdcard/fota-backup.img
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/fota
4. Reboot with CWM or type reboot in ADB.
