Softbricked bootlooped unflashable G2
My Puerto Rico (Claro) D801 (which is actually a D803) is softbricked after successful rooting but failed KitKat firmware update. I'm used to rooting phones, but the G2 seems to have a few particularly broken elements. I essentially bricked my G2 because it identifies as D801 in software/hardware, but isn't actually compatible with D801 firmware. Major issue, which apparently loads of other people on XDA are having.
- Can't restore firmware from the phone (stuck in fastboot)
- Can't restore from LGMobile Update application (Windows sees the phone on USB but application doesn't)
- Can't flash either D801 or D803 TOT using LGFlashTool because of the identification issue.
- I can get into Download mode.
I'm desperately looking for help in fixing this. Can supply more info on what I've already tried.
