Default Stuck in recovery after OTA but stupidly formatted SD card...need help please!

Hi all,

I have an LG D802, was running standard ROM just rooted and with PhilZ recovery. Well I was silly and tried an OTA update, and got stuck at recovery...unfortunately I panicked, cleared everything and tried to flash another ROM but I'm still stuck at recovery.

I tried the instructions in the thread about being stuck after an OTA update but as I;ve formatted the sd partition it didn't work.

I want to go back to stock, I just have no idea how....I have ADB access though if that helps! I'm not really experienced in this kind of thing so please dumb it down for me!

Any help much appreciated!

Callum

can you get into download mode either try the adb reboot download mode or turn phone entirely off and hold volume up(only volume up) and plug it into the pc usb, if you can use the back to stock guide to get your phone working again

have you tried adb pushing/sideloading a rom and flashing to see if it helps?

Yes trued flashing a custom ROM, however in my haste to try and stop the OTA forcing me to recovery I may have formatted some partitions I shouldnt have.
Can I restore everything by downloading the kdz with all the correct IMG files in, converting to a flash able zip (saw a guide on here) and trying that?
