It could work... Or it could throw you into a boot loop again. Its kind of a trial and error thing. If you got out of the boot loop using the LG Flash Tool, then you are probably in good shape to try again with Cyanogenmod. If it gets stuck again, just use the flash tool to restore to stock. Make sure any personal data is backed up before you try it, but that should be a step you take anyway. If you are familiar with the flash tool, then I would suggest you download one of the older stock ROMs that you know is compatible with Cyanogenmod and flash it using the tool. There are some good tutorials on here explaining each step thoroughly.
Sent from some kind of EVO with some kind of custom ROM.


If you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.
I do basic tutorials on stupid and simple hacks and mods for phones and tablets and all kinds of things.

Personally, I've tried two different AOSP based ROMs with ZVD. Both worked properly. I just realized I like stock better so I flashed back no problem. They were DeviantXone and VanirAOSP

Anything that has a 4.4.x baseband should work fine. (Alot of them are still running on zv8/a-DONT TRY AND INSTALL)

In order to get CM on your phone you'll have to downgrade to ZV8 baseband/modem prior to flashing or you'll be boot looping
