Sorry I don't understand your question, however to downgrade from 4.4.2 to 4.2.2 I used the "go back to stock" guide in the g2 forum without any problem.

The factory restore image gets updated to kitkat. You have to use the guide Revert To Stock here on XDA and follow the instructions listed. Just follow them to a t and you'll be good to go. It's awfully hard to mess up. Even if you're not used to using methods like that it's easy peasy

you aren't using the correct tool. Find the thread Revert to Stock here on the LG G2 forums and follow those instructions. You will be using the LG Flash tool. Not the R & D tool. That's a whole different animal that is used for updating software. Not downgrading. All that tool does is search the LG servers for software updates and starts the install for you if you cannot receive an OTA for some weird reason. I downgraded my AT&T d800 using the flash tool method and it takes about 10 mins and then you're back on 4.2.2

The link the other member posted is the correct method of downgrading.

I used the suggested method in http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2432476
to go from 4.4.2 back to 4.2.2 and my phone just got stuck in a boot loop...

So I had to flash back the 4.4.2 .kdz which I am now still on, trying to go back to 4.2.2...

Any suggestions?

Oh, my phone is a 32GB D802 (HongKong) and I'm rooted using ioroot25...

Please help

easy, after downgrade do a factory reset that will pull you out of boot loop.

factory reset via power down. powerup and emediately volume down and power and keep pressed. confirm with power button factory reset and boot up
