If you can get into download mode by holding Vol Up and then connecting a USB cable (while the device is off) then this method will work for you.

http://www.rwilco12.com/forum/showthread.php?tid=96

Thank you @rwilco12 for hosting the download

1. Download the above Zip and extract it to a folder on your Desktop called "LG G2 Stock" (or whatever you prefer to name it).

2. Install LGUnitedMobileDriver from "LG G2 Stock" Folder

3. Install Setup_LGFlashTool from "LG G2 Stock" Folder (You will get a log in error if you try to open it)

4. Extract MegaLock.zip from the "LG G2 Stock" Folder to C:\LG\LGFlashTool and overwrite existing MegaLock.dll file. This gets around the Log in Error you got before when you tried to open it.

6. Put phone in Download mode by holding Volume up for a couple seconds and then plugging the phone in via USB.

7. Go to Windows Start Menu and under "search programs and files" type "device manager" and open it up.

8. Go to Ports (COM & LPT). You should see LGE AndroidNet etc... Right click it and go to Properties > Port Settings > Advanced > Change COM Port Number to COM41 > OK > OK > Close Device Manager

9. You should have a LGFlashTool shortcut on your desktop. Double Click it to open it up.

10. In the Model Config that opens up Select Manual Mode in top left.

11. For DLL browse to "LG G2 Stock" folder and select LGLS980_20130904_LGFLASHv151.dll file

12. For S/W browse to "LG G2 Stock" Folder and select LS980ZV7_01.tot file

13. Hit OK and then click the Yellow Arrow in top left of LG Flash Tool. Wait for it to say "READY!!"

14. Unplug your phone and power it off (it may reboot before you can power it off).

15. Go back into download mode and the stock ROM will start flashing on it's own. It should take no more than 10 minutes. It may stop around 80% but your phone will say 100% and reboot and Presto! Back to stock or unbricked! (Whichever you were trying to do)



Thanks and I hope this helps!

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 : ? ? ? ? ? ? ?

Turn off the device completely
Press the Vol+ and the power and opens in Factory Hard Reset process. push the power button twice to accept to start the process.
Restarted the device and opens in any situation.
Close the device completely.
Press Vol+ and you connect the USB cable and opens the device in Download mode-Firmware Update
Expect to finish installing the drivers on the computer.
do right click on my computer icon, choose Properties and Device Management choose the COM/LPT Ports there you will see your device to be attached to some COMx selects and do again properties-settings-Advanced-Port port number the change by COMx in COM41, press Ok and close all Windows.
