I have a VZW LG G2 - with (as far as I can remember) Jelly Bean. I actually had TWRP recovery installed on it via FreeGee, but, for some reason, could never get it to boot into it.

Now - I got the message that KK is available OTA, so I figure - fine, I'll have it installed and then deal with rooting later.

Here is the bad part - it said, "rebooting device" (right after I clicked on Install), and booted into TWRP recovery. I can't get it past it - and (of course), I don't have any backup on the phone....

So, I figure that I perhaps could download the IMG file and install it via TWRP. Fine. Except that when I connect the phone to the usb (Windows 8.1 64-bit), nothing doing. Does not come up in the list of devices.

WTF??
WTF x2, in fact!

Thoughts?

Did the "Factory Hard Reset" - and it still boots into TWRP.

Tried with the suggested codes wiping both misc and fota - still stuck. The darn thing does not have the sd card slot, so I am stuck in the boot loop. Waaaaaah!!!!!!

Suggestions are welcome at this time for my personal sanity sake.
