Can you flash Lollipop 5.1.1 (for example from this link) to LG G Flex 2 with this method?

Heads up for rooted
If your device is rooted select the BOARD DL option, if not your device will go to a blue screen with LG Factory Reset Status 2, well at least that what it happened to mine, had a mini heart attack. Thanks for the guide!

I followed the procedure to bring my ls996 to stock with the zv5.tot but it is bootlooping at the minios screen.

Edit: I managed to enter recovery, I performed a factory reset but the phone still bootloops at the minios screen (doesn't even load minios). Does anyone have any idea on what to do next?

I followed everything that post #43 said but it still doesn't load minios. It reboots, shows it is loading minios and stays there for a few minutes then reboots again and does the same thing until it discharges. A minios bootloop as it doesn't let me do anything.

It stays at this screen:

I have used the lgflashtool on different lg devices besides the Flex 2 and this has never happened before. So I don't know what is happening with this phone.
