Default [Q] Possible To Flash Custom Recovery to KitKat Yet?

I seem to have gotten over my head here being fairly new to android in general but wanting to try out all the new stuff lol.

Basically, I updated my LG G2 with the Verizon Software Upgrade Assistant but after updating proceeded to screw up a few system files in the process. The kicker is I didn't know that installing this update was going to remove my TWRP custom recovery!

So now... It seems I am stuck with a buggy kitkat and cannot reinstall it because
- my custom recovery is gone and it seems that I can't reflash it do to my being on kitkat (24a)
- Verizon Software Upgrade Assistant won't upgrade the phone again because in it's view I have the latest and greatest.
- using factory reset doesn't seem to be fixing the underlying issue of system files being corrupted but simply wipes user data and apps.

What am I to do? Am I doomed to have a buggy phone until CWM or TWRP support LG G2 so I can install a ROM?
Or is there something I can do to fix this?

Thanks in advance!

If you still have root, you can use this, AutoRec - KitKat Recovery Installer
http://forum.xda-developers.com /sho....php?t=2715496



If you do not have root it would be best to start fresh by following this thread

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=45694605

Then use IORoot to root your phone, thread below

After rooting use AutoRec-Kit Kat Recovery Installer and you will be good to go.

Hope all this helps.

Yes, Thank you!

I used the "VERIZON ONLY Revert to stock GUIDE [UPDATED]" and worked like a charm!
