Thumbs down Failure
Well, I tried to upgrade to Lollipop and it failed terribly. I followed LG G2 is UNBRICKABLE NOW! [FIX REAL HARD BRICK] thread to revert back to KitKat. Good that I backup all partitions.

Anyway, it took me whole weekend to change from hard brick into working phone.

I will try again later once I will get recovery which will flash 30a system without failure. Strange, 2.8.4 or 2.8.5 refuse to flash 30a or 20d ROM zip - both failed.

I tried to apply the 20D ROM with 2.8.5 last night, and I had a nasty surprise. "systemui has stopped" error along with other processes. Phone was not usable and booting in safe mode had the same result. End up, I need to wipe /data to reset the device.

I don't think it is 20D ROM zip or TWRP fault, even though I did notice the /system bug in 2.8.5. I think it was the compatibility issue between PARDUS ROM and the official HK 20D ROM.

So, if someone is coming from a custom ROM to this zip, be aware that you may need to wipe your /data folder before it can work.

Hey!
Did you manage to get it working in the end ?
If so, do you have any plan to make a flashable zip from the rom, or not really ?

Cheers !
