Unhappy [Q] D803 Phone freezes then reboots every few minutes

What's currently happening is my phone will boot and work normally except it appears the radio is not working then after 60-120 seconds freeze for a second then reboot. Wifi does work but I just see an x for the cell network signal and if I take out the SIM I get no notification. Curiously if I'm using the camera it seems to delay the rebooting by a few minutes.

I've tried http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2432476 LG G2 Stock Firmware (Go Back to Stock) to no success, I was able to flash, it removed TWRP but I get the same symptoms anyway.

I've tried flashing the Rogers modem and this did not make a difference.

When I noticed this problem was when I was installing/testing some xposed modules, although it seems strange that they could break the phone in this way.

I've run out of ideas and although my phone isn't bricked per say it's near useless if it's going to reboot every minute or two. The phone doesn't reboot if I leave it in download mode or TWRP so this makes me think there's some hope.

Assuming it's not against the rules I'll PayPal anyone who comes up with the fix $50 CAD because right now I'm hooped.

Did you download and try flashing the exposed disabler zip file?

Of course there is hope!
All you gotta do is just download this ROM...
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2451592

Download it with your PC, then connect your phone to the PC to transfer the file.
The TWRP and flash it and that should fix it all.

Good luck

Do you have a gmail widget on your lockscreen? (Was worth a shot since others have reported varying issues with gmail widgets on the lockscreen).

I lost my recovery when I tried to go back to stock, and I can't seem to install any apps. I'm trying "upgrade recovery" from the LG Mobile Support Tool to see if that works. Otherwise I guess I have to find out how to root and flash a recovery entirely over ADB

I was able to restore the stock recovery and factory reset but that still didn't resolve the issue. Can someone provide a /system/ partition dump of a d803? I'm assuming there's something broken in there but I don't think flashing a ROM will solve that since flashing stock didn't seem to.

If flashing to stock didn't work then your phone may as well be defective...

It's not a paperweight yet, I can adb. I rooted it through adb I'm just not sure what the xposed module broke. It has to be something that persists across flashing stock but I don't have anything to compare against.

EFS. Flash or push your backed up EFS.

I don't have one. I made a backup in TWRP but ended up losing it when trying to fix things . I believe I can still see my IMEI if that's any sign of things not being completely ****ed.
