AutoRec
KitKat Recovery Installer



Info
Many people upgrade to KitKat and find it so annoying to look for a flashable zip file, or trying to downgrade the bootloader, flashing patched kernel,... in order to have a working system, custom recovery with KitKat. So we make this little app to do all the job for you automatically.

Process
Using this app means you'll downgrade your bootloader and flash a custom recovery (in this case, we used TWRP 2.7), fix download mode, also install patched kernel so you can boot back to your current system (stock LG KitKat ROM)

Guide
Upgrade to KitKat using KDZ / TOT / OTA method
Root your device (using ioroot25)
Install AutoRec (grant root permission)

*D801 must root before taking KitKat OTA

Downloads
ioroot25: http://bit.ly/g2_root
AutoRec: http://bit.ly/g2_AutoRec

Credits
TWRP Team
@djrbliss for the loki tool
@Savoca, @xdabbeb for the patched kernel
@autoprime for the ioroot
@kewkie for the splashscreen


Warning!!!
Modifying partitions is dangerous and we won't take any responsibility for possible damages you or the app may do to your system. Please use at your own risk.

Any possible support for D803? A few hours ago I was actually annoyed that I couldn't get recovery on my KitKat (rooted, stock) G2, then this thread popped up!

Yes. If lookout prevents some files to be copied it can be dangerous m8. The files are clean, each variant has it's own. Enjoy
