So I have actually figured out the problem completely, yet I do not yet have a solution.
-I after flashing the correct .img over to my device, I was all set to go, but read somewhere about flashing over mahdi ROM.
-I successfully flashed Mahdi, but DID NOT FLASH THE DEVICE VERSION PATCH (literally hit my head on the desk when I realized).
-I panicked after it did not work and reflashed all the .img so I was stuck with stock recovery, no adb, no sideload, no fastboot.
Is there ANY WAY to flash back to stock with the LG Flash Tool for the ATT D800 that ignores the model number inconsistency. This type of phone only supports the .TOT method of flashing. There is no other way (KDZ = NO). Currently my device's build.prop says that the model is "g2" (this is what the patch was supposed to fix) and my flashing file/.dll is for "D800".
My device can not be seen in Ubuntu.
