Try to find a LG support tool for Mac

Custom recovery?
Try a wipe on dalvik and cache, also a permission fix

Try a factory reset (ps all data lost)

Live with it until you get to a pc

I have looked everywhere for a lg support tool for Mac cannot find one anywheres

Somehow I got it fixed by restoring from a backup via twrp, I have been having issues with this phone (d803) since purchase is there a way (Mac) to factory restore this thing so I can return it for a new device

Nope. You need Windows, but a virtual machine works fine. I use VMware.

Download a torrented version of Windows 7 and install Windows 7 via Boot Camp. Use Google to fix everything.

Default Where you stuck

Where are you stuck? At the LG logo or looping into TWRP? If you can get into boot loader I have used the insructions found here.

I am also a Mac user and often have to find work arounds.
