I have a sprint LG G2, LG flashtool thinks its a T-mobile LG G2. It previosuly had a mixed rom of sprint+T-mobile (to use it as a GSM device). Is there a way to manually change my model in LG flashtool so it accepts the sprint .dll and .TOT

Anyone? I flashed the T-Mobile stock .TOT and now the phone is very unstable. It keeps rebooting every couple minutes and will not turn off

you can try editing build.prop in pc with notepad++ to say it's model is ls980 and then try and see if you can flash?

I cant. The phone is too unstable. Every time I try to root it, it will reboot.
Is there a way to modify the Sprint .tot and .dll to make it trick LG flashtool into thinking its the t-mobile version?

Well you can try this dll which is supposed to ignore model check

I GOT IT!!! I kept trying and finally was able root and pull build.prop with ADB. I found a sprint LG G2 build.prop here on XDA, I pushed that one on the phone and then went into download mode and flashed sprint .tot and .dll with LG Flashtool. Thanks man!!!!
