friend accepted sprints new OTA. Phone wont boot past TWRP
So, I rooted my coworkers Sprint G2 or LG LS980 using IoRoot a month ago and had TWRP installed on it. prior to doing this I had looked into what it would take to revert it to factory unrooted unmolested state. didnt seem to hard with the lgFlash tool and what not....
Well two days ago he accepted and tried to install the new OTA. he was on ZVA firmware, and I believe the new OTA was for 4.4... well the install of the OTA failed im pretty sure do to TWRP being installed instead of stock recovery. instead of stopping there and calling me he tried to fix it himself... I believe one of the things he did was to wipe the device. as in advanced wipe, select EVERYTING including system....
He gave it to me today rather pissed and asked me to fix it.
Ok, I have bee through MANY threads about reverting back to stock, and it seems I am having a serious driver issue... In my laptops device manager I can see the LS980, but it has no driver installed. I have downloaded many different versions of the LG drivers from various tutorials here and on other websites. I even tried to find them on LG.com, but no luck there.
I can get it into download mode, holding vol+ and plug in USB, but once I try to connect to it via LGMobile Support tool or LGFlash tool, they do not detect it. it tries to load three different modems, and the center one always fails. is there anyplace I can get JUST the driver, not the entire self extracting EXE files?
I was just going to copy a ROM onto the internal storage, but even using the mount tab in TWRP it will not connect to my computer.
PLease for the love of all that is sacred to XDA help me!!! I sadly do not know much about ADB... I have never really used it. at this time it is not installed and I wouldnt know what to install and how to ADB Push a rom onto the phone...
Edit, here is ONE of the tutorials I tried, but since I cannot get the proper drivers installed this hangs when I click the yellow arrow to start it....
G Flex on AT&T. Rooted, still waiting for recovery and ROMS... Im a flash whore having withdrawls.
