Ok I have looked and looked and I cannot find a solution for this. My G2 is booting straight into TWRP after the OTA and I cannot get it back. I can get it into download mode but it just sits there at 0% not doing anything. The method for fixing it using TWRP's terminal command mode did not work it just told me that there was not enough space on the device. Should I just smash the screen and take it back to Best Buy to get it replaced since its insured or what? I'm at my wit's end here.

Do you have a backup? If you don't have a ROM maybe push a ROM into recovery then flash.....could also flash stock using lg support too

Exclamation fix for TWRP (Teamwin Recovery) boot loop on Sprint LG-LS980
So I did the same thing, I was down for 2 days when I accepted the OTA update, see (attached screenshot)

I followed the exact instructions for this Verizon only thread, but instead of using the Verizon restore file (.tot) I used the
Here's the thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...5#post45694605
Sprint one.
I got the Sprint link from this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2432476
the direct link is here: http://storagecow.eu/index.php?dir=X...print+LS980%2F


Just follow the instructions including replacing the megalock.dll file. If, not you will be asked to authenticate running the LG Flash Tool.
Also, I got a error message that screwed me for about a day because I had a bad LGVS980_20130902_LGFLASHv151.dll file. (see 2nd attachment for the error)

Hope this helps you and others!

Thanks man! I got stuck in a TWRP bootloop after the update. Had to use this method to restore phone and end the TWRP bootloop.

Anyone else on Sprint: use the above instructions just make sure to use the LGLS980_20130904_LGFLASHv151.dll not the LSVS file.

I brricked my phone LG G2 Sprint and now i am in trouble ...phone not booting..
only i get the sideload via Recovery mode...
need a Recovery TWRP/CWM any...
and the way to flash the Recovery...

as i have changed the build.prop's setting
ro.build.target_operators= SPR
to
ro.build.target_operators= OPEN

and restarted it and then ..the ENd.
phone not starting...

tried to use LG Flash TOOL the .dll and .tot downloaded of Sprint
but the error comes for dll as i have changed build.prop to OPEN
so that LG FLASH TOOL is also not working..

figured out the solution but the way for these solution is still far...

just need the WAY for the solution..

Solution : Need to Replace the build.prop(OPEN) which is edited ONE ----> to-----> Original build.prop(SPR) [so that can use your said procedure]
if can't replace then should be able to edit the OPEN to SPR again
Only the things can work thru SIDELOAD only.
Also need a way to flash the Recovery in LG G2 SPRINT (so as to push or edit the build.prop) that to via SIDELOAD
The WAY : ? ? ? ? ? ? ?
?? ? ? ?? ? ?
(It's Really a Milky Way) {UNSEEN}


Please Help.

It worked..
The thing is that while installing devices drivers n stuffs
Sometimes some file are skipped unknowingly.
But again if u reinstall on same device without formatting then the issue remains unchanged.
So for that reason u should either format the OS n perform the said things/procedure.
Or just switch the computer or laptop to other.

Just Simply works...
It's like digging a mountain n getting an ant...
