Unhappy [Q] TMobile D801 Stuck in TWRP boot

Needing expert help. I have a rooted LG G2 D801 with a custom ROM installed. Was stupid enough to accept the most recent OTA and now it just continually goes into TWRP. Have tried to reinstall custom ROM from TWRP. Have tried the LG software to install the kdz file. Always gets stuck at step after extracting the kdz file. Even took it to a local guy and he got stuck in the same place.

I just want the phone back in working order. Don't care which ROM. Will pay $20 for anyone with the working answer.

Thx.

you can do a couple things. Sideload a new rom from your computer. Google how to setup the drivers and do it. OR from what Ive read you can delete the system partition like you are gonna flash a new rom then you wont get stuck when using the kdz to go back to stock.

Also look on the forums, I think you can run a command via shell in twrp to delete the fota dir and it should boot to. Dont quote me on that

Default Tried to delete fota; no avail

Tried this method:
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/fota

That didn't help. Now trying to adb shell method from my computer.

Default Fixed....finally

Thanks for the pointers guys. The fix ended up being this from another post:

dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/fota
then hit enter
type
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/misc
then hit enter and reboot.
