Just for info, can you please add the steps to your post.

Thanks.

I went back to pure stock and no custom recovery, then did the 10p update - I found that the update to 10p would not work with other than stock recovery. I then just used the settings query for OTA update, downloaded and installed - all my programs and data were intact after the update, except apps requiring root would not run correctly. I then followed your steps to root. I still have the stock recovery at this point. KitKat runs great.

So when going back to complete stock the 10p, how did you keep apps, settings if you used odin.? Just interested in your procedure since obviously OTA on stock will retain programs and settings.

Honestly, I don't know. I had been flashing lots of different ROMS and then went back the total day 1 stock. I then updated OTA to 10p a couple of months ago and rooted but did not flash a custom recovery. I then heard that 4.4.2 was available, checked via the about link and downloaded. All the apps and data stayed in place. I then rooted and have yet to flash a custom recovery. I'm sorry I can't give you more detail. But I can tell you that I seem to have better battery life, and I had to pair my phone to my car again. Good luck.

With the recovery installed from this thread. Can we flash non stock custom roms or just stock roms.

Problems flashing.
Hey! I can't flash the .TOT, the Flash Tool doesn't recognize port COM41, or any other. I go to device administrator, and there's my phone as port 41, but the Flashing Tool doesn't. Any ideas?!

Here is the detailed thread for using Lg flash tool. Http://forum.gsmhosting.com/vbb/f177...-pass-1628819/

I guess you changed yiu computer date and time before using it as mentioned in OP??

Also what Rom are you coming from? Is your bootloader unlocked/lokified?

I have not used towelroot ever. BUT, I do not see why you cannot add a recovery irrespective of root method. I have done this mtself.
