Dear people of xda,
Recenlty ive receive a FOTA update to my device which runs 4.2.2. Being stupid, i did the update although i had cwm recovery installed on my devices. Now my device keeps bootlooping into cwm without being able to do anything.
Ive read tons of threads talking about this issue but i still cant get my to boot normally.
Yingy in this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2563527 had the same problem but the only diffrence is my pc cant recognize my device in order to do the adb fix by thecubed.
Im plugging my G2 for the first time in this computer and that is why i think my pc is failing to install drivers. I downloaded and instellad latest driver although windows device manger shows error devices not detected and the end of the process.
In order to fix my phone i just need to make me pc recognize my phone in adb although phone was never plugged before to this pc so i think my G2 wont let it access. I tried installing universal driver such as Pdanet as offered in threat but still when i write adb devices in cmd i get device offline!
Download latest adb drviers, lates lg g2 driver, lg user support tool does not recognize plugged device as well. All me sdk manger tools are patched to latest version.

PLEASE ive tried anything possible. spend like 9 hours and still nothing. i would really appriciate your help.
Thanks.
Edit: here my problem with pdanet drivers, it asks me to allow pc usb debbuging as shown in screenshot below but icant do it since im stuck at cwm recovery!

Solved!
BOOM!! after 12 hours i FINALLY manged to solved this problem. Really simple actually lol.
If anyone come across the issue please do the following:
1. Go to clockwork recovery as always, go to install zip from sdcard, choose install zip from sideload.
2. Plug your phone to pc.
3. Run adb with lastest drivers and sdk tools.
4. At the adb folder press shift+right click and start cmd.
5. write adb devices it should show your device id like this (xxxxxxxxx sideload).
6.Download latest twrp recovery from here http://teamw.in/project/twrp2/197 and if you have open europe version G2 like me download latest version from here: http://techerrata.com/browse/twrp2/g2d802
7.put the zip file in the adb folder, do not unzip it.
8. write in cmd console adb sideload xxxx.zip (xxxx is the name of twrp file).
9. cwm will flash twrp recovery over cwm.
10. reboot in recovery in advanced options.
11. now you have twrp recovery.
12. follow this guide : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...1696&nocache=1
13. THATS IT!!!
finally after going through this mess, im never using cwm recovery again. twrp is the best
good luck everyone!
