Default can't unroot T mobile LG g2 kitkat

1) pre-OTA update to Kitkat, using the guide that said back up to D80110c.kdz
2) loaded d80120a.kdz
3) re-rooted
4)loaded TWRP
5) tried to revert to stock Rom using UpTextEx.exe - but where it normal ask for English/Korea imput, I get a screen with the following:

Port, ESN/IMEI, Model, etc. But all my phone info is missing.

Click read phone information and it starts to scan then I get a popup: Port (USB or Serial) not found. I click okay (only option) and it keeps scanning but as of now, it doesn't add info at all.

I don't want to start the upgrade (as it's not an upgrade) for fear of deleting the IMEI or some other item that will turn my phone into a permanent paper weigh.

Just need to get this back to scratch so I can sell it.

So does anyone know how I can restore this to original settings if UpTextEx doesn't see my info?

Bumping this with updates.

1) Download menu shows rooted
2)Root checker says it's not
3) Super SU says there is no SU binary installed.
4) LG R&D still not showing phone info, but I attempted an "upgrade" using D80110c and D80110g - both ended up with it saying that I had the most current version.
5)Factory reset (hoping that would erase the root and let me start again), but still rooted, still denied SU.

Can someone please help me get out of Iimbo?

I no longer have recovery, so I can't access cache

Now I'm confused - I posted this in

G2 phone - general discussion - Q&A - isn't that the G2 forum?

Not sure how that happened, as I searched for my device and pulled up that forum before posting. But must be doing something wrong there as well, as I just scolded for the same thing on another post. (which however was in the G2 section).

Never mind I've noticed the search engine has been a bit funny recently.
