Been awhile but I've got another LG G2 now, the VS980 Verizon model. Originally when I got it earlier it has the factory 5.0.2 build on it (can't recall the actual build number at this exact instant, I think it was 39A LRX22G but I just didn't pay enough attention to that, might be part of this issue).
Anyway, as I loved CloudyG2 in the past when I used it with the G2 I had a few years ago obviously I'd like to get this up and running again so, I've made several attempts so far. I've rolled back to 4.2.2 11A and rooted (ioroot) with no issues, then installed AutoRec with no issues, then copied the CloudyG2 2.2 archive and the KK baseband over as well following the instructions in the OP.
- boot to recovery
- full wipe
- flash KK baseband
- in Aroma I choose the VS980 model, add the Task Manager, drop the Think whatever thing and add the ad blocker
- flash ROM
- wipe cache/Dalvik one last time
and of course it just gets stuck at the second LG logo forever and I've done this like 8 times so far. I'm guessing there's potentially an issue with the fact that it did have 5.0.2 on it before I started all this, perhaps it's a bootloader thing. Doing searches and reading a lot of posts so far looking for anything that might help me resolve it and get CloudyG2 2.2 installed. Yes I'm aware that 3.3 is available but a) I don't like Lollipop and b) I use Mi2Raw which is unavailable for LP anyway which is sad but that's how it goes.
So, if anyone has any tips or suggestions I'd appreciate hearing them. Was looking around for a 24A TOT file but not having much luck finding one, or a KDZ for that matter so I'm not sure what to do for the moment, will just reflash the 11A TOT that I have and hold off hoping anyone might offer something helpful.
Ok, so I mucked around with 11A, then 26A, then jumped to 39A which I then used the Verizon upgrader on the laptop to push up to 3AA and never had much luck. Did a lot more reading and decided that 24A seems to be "the golden ticket" for most things so, I did some more searching, found the 24A KDZ file
(not TOT) and flashed that, then ioroot(ed) it, installed AutoRec, copied the CloudyG2 2.2 archive to internal storage, rebooted to recovery, backed up the 24A installation, flashed the KK baseband just in case (it was already on 24A as noted so, kinda redundant for me but I did it anyway), then flashed CloudyG2 and, success. Working perfectly as expected, not one issue noted so far that I can find, installed the Dorimanx 10.9 kernel (the Knock version) after setting things up and still no issues noted.
I missed the G2, I really did, it's just all around such an awesome device even years after its introduction in 2013 (mine was made/sold in May 2014). Going to order a new battery for it but I don't expect to be shifting phones again anytime soon. My Flex 2 will go to my Wife for use as a more portable tablet than what she's been using (a 7" Nook HD for years now). Should be a nice boost for her even though I'll be using some tweaks to bring it down to 1 Little and 1 Big core operation to extend battery life for her.
Cloudyfa: Thank you again for creating this ROM for all of us, I used it years ago with the previous G2 I owned (Sprint LS980 variant) and I'm happy to be using it once more on this VS980 without a single problem so far.
