Default Can not flash a ROM to a friends LG G2! (Sprint) (ZVC)

Hello everyone, I need a little help.

Now I am not new to the rooting ordeal. I have been rooting ever since my old EVO 4G (yes, with those dreaded boot loaders.) My personal phone is running Paranoid Android RC2 (Optimus G) so I know about the standard wiping process for ROMs.

I have successfully rooted my friends G2 (Sprint) and I had TWRP on it, but the TWRP failed to make backups, so now I have Philz Touch (the custom CWM) on it and it backups fine.

My problem is when I try to flash a custom AOSP ROM, the phone only boots to the LG logo. My friend really wants Cyanogenmod on his phone but it refuses to boot. I have searched for an answer but have no idea. This is the first time I have been truly stumped. Other times after some work I figured it out but this one I do not get. Here are all the details:

Sprint LG G2 (LS980)
Kitkat Modem/Update (stock 4.4.2)
Stock ZVC
Rooted by the Autorec.apk. Root works just fine.
Philz touch recovery.
I have even found an AOSP modem you can flash in recovery, but that was no dice. Even messed up the backup on Philz and it wouldn't get past sprint screen until I flashed KK modem.
I have tried many different nightlys/Msnapshots and Mahdi ROM and it won't boot.

Is there something I am missing?
Thanks again for any help guys!

You have to be on ZV8 modem not sure if that's what you meant by aosp modem.

Glad I'm not the only one with this issue, I gave up on trying to install cyanogenmod after numerous failures, luckily there's a ROM out there based on cyanogenmod that will work with all Variants of the LG G2, I think your friend will enjoy this ROM.[emoji4][emoji4][emoji4]

I would take @TechGirl90 suggestion. It's a great ROM that I run myself with the exact features to make full use of the g2 and make it the best phone you could ever have.

I moved on to houstonns aospa build...couple things were broken in CM11. NFC is broke on aospa for the ls980 but I rarely use it. Battery isn't as good as stock I don't think but its hard to tell because I just moved to a new area and have no WiFi and the LTE is spotty.

also...no need for an old radio with aospa. I'm using the KK radio with this

Even with crappy signal I'm still managing about 5 hours SOT.
