You can use dd to write the aboot.img of 4.2.2 back. This will allow the old Loki flash method.

I had the same problem until I ran across this post: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2698267 {Acually the same you quoted}
If you'll go down to the download Step #3 and copy that zip file to your computer and unzip it and run the bat file it will install TWRP v2.7. Of course you'll have to install the LG USB drivers and install from your computer. (Won't work otherwise) Also be sure and use the second down connection for USB on your tablet - M-something, but not the charging one.
Also - get a good reboot app so you won't have to hold the buttons.
Asus Transformer TF101 10.1"
(Rooted - KitKat 4.4.2_23 by TimU)

LG G Pad 8.3
(Rooted) - [KK][4.4.4][LINARO/SABERMOD] CyanogenMod 11 nightly
(Different nightly if the changes look interesting, but always
a nightly upped/optimized by Infected, if possible)
Or anything else up is possible also...
