Default LG E980 PhilZ Touch Recovery BootLoop Fix (HOW TO GET DEVICE BACK TO USABLE STATE)

Hi all,
I recently figured out how to get an LG E980 back to a usable state after being stuck in a recovery loop due to a user or random system error from the PhilZ Touch Recovery (CWM/TWRP combo) and put CyanogenMod on it instead of having to flash back to stock.....the following link is directed to a zip file with a read me inside of it along with some files that have been modified to work with the recovery I have included in the zip file.

------HERE IS THE ZIP FOLLOW THE README INSIDE IT OR RISK BRICKING YOUR DEVICE------
https://docs.google.com/file/d/0BziX...p=docslist_api

******I am not responsible for anything that may happen to your device while following this guide, before following it, and after following it.......by downloading the zip file and following the steps you take all responsibility for anything that may possibly happen to your device at any time before, after, or while following this guide!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!******
