Download and Install LG United Mobile Driver

Download and Install LG Mobile Support Tool

Boot your phone into download mode:
Put your G2 into download mode by switching it off, hold the Volume up button and insert the usb cable into the phone; wait for the drivers to finish loading if doing it for the first time.

Start the LG Mobile Support Tool and click on Options -> Upgrade Recovery



It should now download the firmware (about 2gb) and flash it - this may take some time.




This is needed if you stuck in a bootloop after the flash is done:
Factory reset (this wipe your data and sdcard):
1. Turn the phone off.
2. Press and hold the Power and Volume down button.
3. When the LG logo pops up let go for a second and press the combo again.
4. You'll be prompted to press the Power button 3 times to wipe the device.

I used this method last night and it didnt mess with the storage at all. They don't even have a 16gb G2 so who knows. Also are you sure you are not mistaken cause this method doesnt wipe data.

I know it does'nt wipe data, but it reflashes recovery, and in my case something went wrong. But Lg DO sell D802 as a 16 gb model!

Can anyone using this method please post results. Just wondering if there is more success with this method as opposed to the other method. Thanks.

I don't understand how could this be, you downloaded the specific firmware for your device (using your serial number)...

Can't you just try to flash it again ?

I have reflashed it 5 times The problem was that it asked for some kind of password the first time (not the pin). So I did a factory reset. Now even TWRP says that my storage is 10.66 gb :/
