I attempted flashing a ZVA zip earlier that uses `qcom.install_radio`. Unfortunately, this somehow causes my LS980 to loop in fastboot mode. I've seen a few other people talking about this happening to them as well, so decided I would share this.

Thanks to, I was able to get the original *.img files and drop them in with fastboot.

You'll need to go to and download the partitions that you need. After that is done, run the following (replacing with your file names along the way):
fastboot flash aboot aboot.img
fastboot flash boot boot.img
fastboot flash tz tz.img
fastboot flash rpm rpm.img
fastboot flash modem modem.img
fastboot flash laf laf.img
fastboot flash sbl1 sbl1.img
You can continue flashing the rest of the files, but these were the files that were effected by the zip I used and sufficed for getting it back online.

After that's done, you need to flash the *.img file for the recovery that you want. For instance, mine would be:
fastboot flash recovery twrp.img
You'll need to turn the phone completely off, then reboot it while holding power and volume down. This will get you into your recovery and allow you to recover from a backup, or whatever you'd like to do at that point.
