Note: THIS WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY!!! No one but yourself is responsible for what you do to your device. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!

NOTE: This is only known to work with jellybean currently. This DOES NOT work with kitkat at this time and could even possibly brick your device!!!!!

Now updated with Bump'ed imgs and works with 4.4 kitkat.

Okay folks, We finally got things figured out and working and you can now free your LG G Flex.

Thanks to everyone that help to make this happen. You have kept this phone alive.

I told the app to install TWRP but it installed CWM. Not that big of a deal I can use CWM, I just prefer TWRP
