Question [Q] LG-G2 D800 LGG2 Recovery Problems

I bought a phone pre rooted and everything. It was nice, but the problem is I am having trouble changing the recovery on the phone.

For a long time I had TWRP 2.6.3.4. I could not flash any recovery over it. I was finally able to flash TWRP 2.6.3.1 using the same method to get TWRP. At that point I'm still not able to flash a recovery over TWRP.

I just discovered "flashify" tonight where I had flashed the CWR image for the d800. Now I can't even boot into recovery. It acts like I have non. I can boot into android no-problem though.

When I use "flashify" or "Recovery Tools" they claim I still have TWRP 2.6.3.1.

I too tried flashing CWM over TWRP using Flashify, but it didn't work, it still said I had TWRP. However, Flashify did work to revert back to Stock Recovery.

I still have the backup file of the Stock Recovery, I can upload it somewhere if you want to, then maybe you can install CWM.
I have a D802 myself, not sure if my backup would work with your D800 though. but if you're adventurous...

I was able to get back a version of TWRP following this: http://theunlockr.com/2013/11/03/fla...ersions-video/

Still don't know why I can't get other recoveries like CWR or why almost all versions of CM will fail to flash using TWRP

EDIT

I miss read you post. I thought you had a copy of TWRP. Go ahead and send the the stock recovery as that's one thing I have yet to try..

Well now I'm not sure if it's a good idea. Even for custom recoveries there are different files to download for D800 and D802. I don't think my backup would be compatible with your variant.

If you want CM, try flashing Official Nightlies. I've heard they are stable. I flashed CM11 Nightly with TWRP 2.6.3.4 just fine. You can grab it for D800 here.

Mine never works. I think its a MD5 error or something. I can only get one version of CM running and I think it's 10.2, I assume my whole phone is just messed up. Not being able to flash CM or recoveries.

Try going back to stock and starting over? Did you by chance take the 10o ota? That seems to be causing issues for others.

I'm not sure.

Is there a windows software out there that can bring me to stock sort of like the NexusToolkit for Nexus devices.

Settings - about phone - software information

See what software version you have.

I'm currently running CyanogenMod "10.2.0-d800", there is no "Software Information" or "Version"

Recovered back to Clean ROM 2.0

Software version: d80210b


EDIT:

Using this guide here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2468858

I was able to get CWM.

So far I've come to the conclusion. The only way to change recoveries is through the PC and not from the phone it's self
