I soft bricked my phone stuck at LG logo,couldn't boot. Tried using freedom apk to install twrp it flashed. Couldn't get my computer to recognize in download to kdz back to stock tried everything possible. But could enter twrp and use adb. Downloaded the 4.4.2 stock rooted kk for tmo. Did adb sideload in twrp: "adb sideload ROM.zip" and it flashed upon completion , my phone is back up and running with update to 20H. Just thought I'd share what i learnt after beating my head in the wall for hours. :thumbup: hopefully it could benefit others.

How is this called an offline method if you have to have internet connection to install some parts of this method.

I'm really confused as to what your asking.... Of course you have to be online to download files , the files won't be already on your computer to flash back to stock unless you've done it before. The "offline" method in the OP meant that the flashtool wouldn't connect to the internet. Which that guide is out of date and you should refer to the LG G2 or G3 guide which is the same method just use G flex firmware

I thought it was easy to use the old flash tool 1.8 and just get the tot file and hex edit it to the varient you were using worked for me with no recovery no adb and black screen flashing lights

I unrooted my LG G flex from super su options ( I had it rooted with towel root ) and then i tried to upgrade to kit kat through OTA ,but whatever effort i try during the upgrade the phone says that "the phone seems to be rooted", and denies the upgrade process.
I even did a factory reset and then tried to upgrade but with the same results.
Please do you have an idea how to do this?

TL;DR most of the previous posts, but the links are not working for the AT&T section in the OP (oceanhost). Everything you need can be found in the storage cow links though: http://storagecow.eu/index.php?dir=Xda%2F

Of course you have to download the files. But I had the zip files on my PC for a while now. A few weeks ago I bricked on KitKat and needed to flash back to stock so I extracted all the downloaded files and when I went to flash using offline method it wouldn't due to one of the pieces of software needed the internet to install so the flash tool could use it. To me its a little aggregating when you try to use an "offline method" that needs internet connection to install and work. Reason I referred to it was I use my phones hotspot as my home internet. For PC, Xbox live, and tablet. So bricked phone means no internet to install and use the "offline method". Since then I have found the .kdz KitKat file that the PC suite uses to unbrick and I just keep it handy.. I've found the easiest method to unbrick jellybean or KitKat is the lg PC suite that comes on the phone. Just open and select mobile devices at the top toolbar then select fix upgrade errors in the drop down. Only thing I've noticed is you have to have the .kdz in its temp folder and it has to be the .kdz of the version of android you were on when you bricked. And it will reflash your phone to stock unrooted with no internet connection. But if you have internet then it will download the proper .kdz file. Works every time. As long as you can get into download mode. No more flash tools.
