Exclamation [Q] LG G2 booting loop (soft brick?)

Hello,

I have LG G2 (d802 polish version) with 4.2 rooted stock rom, Installed pac rom two days ago and then (stupidly) changed build.prop ro.sf.lcd_density value from 480 to 240 and since then phone is bricked It's either booting forever (LG logo) or booting all the time to recovery mode( I have installed CWM recovery, and later Philz CWM). Now the good side is:

- I can get to download mode and connect to LG Flashtool. .When flashing the tot file BIN_LGD802AT-00-V10b-EUR-XX-SEP-07-2013-16G from XDA Storagecow.eu site, I can connec the phone via USb, change the port to 41 and it starts flashing. HOWEVER, when flashing the stock rom, LG flashtool skips all the partition and flashes it in seconds, then stops at 84 percent, tries to get factory reset,waits for it120 sec and then I have the error DOWNLOAD FAILS. What can be the problem here? Earlier I flashed the same bin file without any problems, and it didn't skipped through partitions , and everything went fine. WTF? Seriously maybe someone knows because I am desperate here. Already trying 2 days to figure it out. Haven't tried the KDZ method yet, because I have Windows 8,1 , and I am having permission errros while trying to flash. I will atttach a screenshot of LG flashtool skipping all the partitions whil flashing soon.

Please HELP!

Default clarification

In any case I am just asking why Lg Flash Tool is skipping all the partitions and flashin properly and then stopping at 84 and not restarting ? How can I flash back to stock? Any advice appreciated. thanks.

Did you try to let LG Mobile Support Tool download and flash matching ROM file automatically? That worked for me when I was stuck in LG logo boot loop. In order to make Support Tool reflash ROM select menu Extra Featrues and then Reset Upgrade Error (or something like that - having tool in german here ) Of course phone must be in download mode and connected to PC.

Hope this helps

After kdz/tot flashing you might have to reset the phone.


either:

Hold volume down + power, wait for lg logo, release keys and hold them again (then proceed to factory reset)

OR

Hold volume down + power, wait for lg logo, release keys and hold volume up + volum down (then proceed to factory reset)
