About to get crazy...
Hello everyone

I am posting here as I definitively ran out of ideas... All I am trying to do is to simply installa a custom recovery to install a new rom on my Gpad 4.4.2 build KOT491v50020d. I tried almost everything I could think of, including the step 3 at the beginning of this thread, using flashify, using some other tools that I don't even remember the name... None of them worked! I was just able to break the factory recovery and managed to restore it with the LG Mobile tool. After that, I got completely stuck. Using the method described at step 3 here seemed to work (i changed the model number as suggested to 500d), the script runs fine, it tells me it finishes, it restarts the device and then go back to the Android normal screen. Tried both with cable plugged and unplugged, no success. What else I can try? Can you help me? Thanks a lot to whoever will find me a way to get out !!!

Got my refurbished tab 2 days ago ... two OTA updates to get to 20d ... I didn't do step#1, just step# 2 then 3. After step#3, just ran flashify to reboot to TWRP recovery (I've only used flashify for that purpose) ... then update to latest TWRP 2.8 (4.4.2)... no issue whatsoever. I've tried Mahdi just for fun, but will stay with (rooted) stock for now.
(I have mahdi on my N7s and G2)

I did it!!!! Thanks for your suggestion that convinced me to try one more time!! The only thing I changed from the last time was a full wipe of the device. Done that, followed the entire procedure again and it worked like a charm!!!

Thanks again dude

Hi, I'm trying to install the TWRP recovery and have had the same problem as you, I made a cache wipe and factory reset but couldn't get the recovery to get installed. Could you please tell me how you solved in detail? thanks

Is there any other way I can install TWRP without the computer or without scripts? Maybe inside the tablet? For some reason my computer works horribly with using .bat files it just doesnt recognize the directory or something.

Im itching to try out the new ROMs but unfortunately I had to factory reset.

Does anyone have a link to the TWRP install zip, since the link in the first post just seems to go to an adware site now.

It seems that when in 4.4, there is no way to install a custom recovery or revert to 4.2 to do it the old way. We will wait I guess though after all this time I'm not actually optimistic.
