Unhappy Softbricked bootlooped unflashable G2

Greetings,

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.

Summary:
  • 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.

If you're having similar issues, I'm @michellzappa on Twitter. I just sent a public reply to @lguSAMobile containing a Google Documents link where I outline all the issues I'm having.

Thanks.
