Yesterday, I had my happy little G Pad running CM11. I hadn't updated it in a while, so I downloaded and installed the newest Nightly. When I rebooted, everything was changed. The keyboard was different, the home button didn't work (soft key), the lockscreen didn't show, and lots of other changes. I wanted to go back to what I had before, so I installed the previous update that I was running. All of my problems were still there. I couldn't find anything to help me online, so I tried to revert to the stock ROM from the NANDROID backup that I have saved on my computer. When I finished flashing it, all I got was a blank screen on bootup. So, I then flashed CM11, which just stuck on the boot logo. I found a few posts online on how to "unbrick" the G Pad, and they all say to put it in download mode and then use the LG Support Tool to go stock. I got it in download mode after some time and tried to use the software. It connected to my tablet just fine, but when it finished downloading the stock and starts to install I get a pop up that says something along the lines of "Could not connect to the server. Please try again later", and there is just an "OK" box below it. When I close the window, I can do nothing but close the entire program. I want to now just get it completely out of download mode, but I cannot. No matter what key combinations I do, all I get is the download mode screen. I can't even get to recovery (CWM). What do I do? I tried contacting LG customer support. Completely unhelpful.

Try a different flash tool, like SmartFlash or LG Flash tool?

Can you assist me with this? I found a guide online but it is not for this tablet. I don't know where I can get all of the files that I need.

Well I haven't used the tools in a long time. I used them on my Optimus 3D ages ago. I can try. I just read that you have to be in S/W update mode instead of download mode, so I'm not sure if these will work but it's worth a try and if nothing else, you'll learn something.

Off the top of my head, you need the ROM split into a .bin file and a .fls file. The .fls is the baseband, so if you only have a WiFi tablet, I guess you only need the .bin file.

If you can't find a .bin for the V500, you can create one from the kdz file. There are tutorials to do this but the easiest is here

Try this Korean KitKat kdz

Now you need to run SmartFlash Tool. Instructions are here. You can leave the .fls field blank.

I just found a link where someone made an all in one tool. You could give that a shot.

Remember to ensure that V500 drivers are installed, as these links are for different phones.
