Default LG G2 after OTA nothing works. Help!

Was trying to install TWRP with Freegee but that didn't work. Tried ADB to install TWRP and used ADB to boot to recovery. After LG logo everything went black. Disconnect battery and then booted again. Then tried OTA to Kitkat (from JB) and now nothing works. When power on LG logo shows and then just black.

When I plug in the usb, Windows asked to format drives (I think partitions) I,J,K,L,M,N,O,P,Q,R,S,T,V,U in phone before it can read it. Same thing happens when trying download mode. Does it mean everything is corrupted? Beyond saving? Thanks for any suggestions.

I have followed the instructions and still not able to get into recovery or download. I append below the scan of my G2 D800.

root@LIME:~# gdisk -l /dev/sdc
GPT fdisk (gdisk) version 0.8.1

Partition table scan:
MBR: protective
BSD: not present
APM: not present
GPT: present

Found valid GPT with protective MBR; using GPT.
Disk /dev/sdc: 61071360 sectors, 29.1 GiB
Logical sector size: 512 bytes
Disk identifier (GUID): 98101B32-BBE2-4BF2-A06E-2BB33D000C20
Partition table holds up to 40 entries
First usable sector is 34, last usable sector is 61071326
Partitions will be aligned on 2-sector boundaries

39 61046784 61071326 12.0 MiB 0700 grow

It said the first readable sector is 34 Does it mean everything above is corrupted. As directed have replaced the sbl1, aboot, rpm, tz, laf and twrp recovery files. What else can I try? Thanks.

Update: Fixed. Can't imagine its that simple! I was doing OTA from 10o to 10q when it bricked with symptoms described in this thread. I followed the instructions but still nothing. I also tried TWRP 2.6.3.3 and resulted with boot error. Then I tried the STOCK recovery and rebooted. Phone booted and started to upgrade to 10q which was downloaded before. Hope this helps.
