Finally my Galaxy nexus was broken beyond repaired, so it was time for new phone.
Since I am living in Panama, the only option was to get G2 d805 from Cable and Wireless.

Here the result:
Flashed root using this link

Interesting part that is flashed ok and put su, but when I start using Root explorer and Titanium backup, it’s never pop a message, but everything was working fine.

Then installed TWRP using d802

and then from installed recovery installed d805 variant

After all done, I have backup EFS, using this

After all done its time to flash ROM:
Installed this ROM

Since I do not care about LG software, I have installed light version.
For 3 days worked not problem whatsoever

Then installed this ROM MOKEE

this is 4.3 ROM also working no problem.
Since I am on CWPanama, I can only use 3G, so out of curiosity flashed this modem


by QUALCOMM, Incorporated Sept 4 2013

And this modem:
by QUALCOMM, Incorporated Sept 6 2013

Since I am on 850 3G, found out that 803 modem work a little bit better, then original 805 or 802.
Unfortunately I cannot test LTE.

So to my conclusion all 802 / 803 ROM working fine on 805 variant.
Restore all my app (no system app) using latest Titanium as no problem, only BBM detect another hardware and assigned new PIN.
Next week i will test more d802 ROM running on d805 phone.

Forgot to mention some of the ROM from d802 will generate this during attempt to install.

assert failed: getprop("ro.product.device") ==


You do this with 7-Zip/WinRAR

In the ROM go to:


1)Open updater-script with a script editor such as notepad/notepad++ (makes things 10x easier), or gedit if you use linux

2)Delete the first line of code (all the way up to the first semicolon you see) and delete the first semi-colon as well

Do not go past the first semiclon when deleteing and DO NOT forget to delete the first semicolon.

I Flash the rom lite that you post in your first comment, it works, perfectly, i have a question, my firmware version at config appears like the first rom, but model has changed to 802, the boot animation still like the rom oficial of my operator, but, the compilation number is the updated.

I will told you more before some tests.
