Basically, from my experience I put together this guide for anyone who wishes to flash a complete stock AT&T KitKat from .TOT file and the root and add recovery.

All the steps are what I have gathered from around the forums, SO I WILL GIVE CREDIT FOR STEPS THAT ARE OUTLINED BY OTHERS. These people helped by their postings.

FLASHING TOT FILES:

1. The BEST - I think a lot of us can agree - thread for the LG E980 flashing with STOCK firmware is this by HYELTON http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...41&postcount=1
STOP OVER THERE AND GIVE THE MAN SOME LOVE AND THANKS !!!!
.TOT files and .Kdz files for all versions can be found at Hyelton's thread above. Also, more details for flashing .TOT vs .Kdz files there. Below is some tips from my experience.

Here is the exact TOT file I used: http://www.mediafire.com/download/dj...-28-2014+0.tot

SOME OF MY TIPS: FROM MY EXPERIENCES

2. The only hitch is getting LGFlash Tools and hacking it. I tried the links on Hyelton’s thread but some are now too new to be hackable. For example, one must find the reg key for the new version of LGTools he links to. Megalock.dll is hit-or-miss. There are other ways for sure but I did not bother further.

3. I found that lower versions of LG Flash Tool (v 1.4.1330R) works just fine.
EDIT: The latest version of LG Flash Tools is here http://www.mediafire.com/download/6g...lash+Stuff.rar
And it contains the DLL to be used during flashing. I STRONGLY SUGGEST USING THIS. You MUST -MUST- TURN OFF INTERNET WHEN USING FLASH TOOLS. This pack contains the full software, and dll files. I have flashed using just this package >10 times at least while testing roms


a.Connect phone and let Windows install drivers. In my case, Windows 8 default were just fine.
b.Put your phone in download mode.
c.Connect it to your computer. In case of windows 8 the windows default drivers work fine.
d.Follow Hyelton’s steps.
EDIT: See posts #32and #33 in this thread. Do not go back to download. But wait for fastboot to install. See post #33 for this. Just wait patiently, the phone will reboot to full normal mode/setup screen, then the LG tools will say pass. BE VERY PATIENT.



ROOTING AND RECOVERY:

ROOTING:
THANKS TO jarari2:
1.This method here works just fine: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2699067

Simple bat file method. Turn ON USB Debugging before trying.

2.RECOVERY:
THANKS TO hoangnova AT http://lgviet.com/forum/threads/moi-...ery-kdz.14841/
** Download and move following file to phone.
** https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B4vS...Vm8/edit?pli=1
OR
** https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resi...DB2BC3A6%21107

** Run apk. Done.

You should have a full stock KitKat + Rooted + Recovery… Enjoy!!

If this guide helped you, you can buy me a beer/coffee or any such wonderful drink.

Hi, my LG OG PRO is stuck in "secure boot error! Cause: boot certification verify". Will this method work for my phone?

I'll give this another shot, thanks. I've been tearing what little hair I have on my head ever since AT&T's indecent proposal with my phone.

Question. Should I remove all of the LG mobile device drivers previously installed on my PC? Also, in disconnecting the internet, should I set the time back to August 2012 or earlier?

Hey, guys. I gave this another go and here is the error message:

Change to DL mode
Can't change to download mode
F0000002
DOWNLOAD FAIL!! in red

I even replaced the megalock.dll file before launching the flash tools app. Am I missing something here?

Try the KDZ method.
