AutoRec
KitKat Recovery Installer



Info
Many people upgrade to KitKat and find it so annoying to look for a flashable zip file, or trying to downgrade the bootloader, flashing patched kernel,... in order to have a working system, custom recovery with KitKat. So we make this little app to do all the job for you automatically.


Process
Using this app means you'll downgrade your bootloader and flash a custom recovery (in this case, we used TWRP 2.7), fix download mode, also install patched kernel so you can boot back to your current system (stock LG KitKat ROM)


Guide
Upgrade to KitKat using KDZ / TOT / OTA method
Root your device (using ioroot25)
Install AutoRec (grant root permission)

*D801 must root before taking KitKat OTA

Any possible support for D803? A few hours ago I was actually annoyed that I couldn't get recovery on my KitKat (rooted, stock) G2, then this thread popped up!

Sure hope he's doing D803. Even if he doesn't though, mad props to him for giving us a solution that actually works! I just pretty much destroyed my recovery partition (issues with secure something or other) thanks to FreeGee. :/

We're downloading D803 kdz to extract needed part :)

Awesome! Great news:victory:

So does this finally allow a safe way to install TWRP to ls980 KK!?
Sure mate, LS980 tested. Use ZVC tot then root it with ioroot25. After that use AutoRec and you'll have TWRP 2.7 ready ;)

    For those having white lines issue when using patched kernel, download your kernel here and flash it via recovery:

    Perfect, now we have lost the only reason why I had not yet left this g2 ...
    I write here because the treads of Cloudy were closed ...
    Thank's @Cloudyfa for all the work you've done for us!

    Cannot figure out how to fix the white lines :confused:

    Tried flashing ZVC radio full to replace the kernel completely, then ROMs failed to flash. So I flashed ZVA, then ZVC, the KK ROMs flashed and it seemed well but the lines were still there. Has anyone figured out how to revert AutoRec? Its a great app but it seems like manually installing recovery prevents the lines

    Edit: Just read @Cloudyfa 's other threads and I kind of feel like an ass. Thank you for all of your hard work on the G2 and thank you for keeping this thread open for us. Hopefully you see how many people appreciated your hard work & its sad that a few unappreciative people had to ruin that:(

    A big hole is left in the android dev section after cloudyfa has left us..He was the big shining star for the g2 development.
    We have lost 3 amazing roms with a bright future, and a lot of other great stuffs like recovery installer for kitkat.
    What have we left now?

    Hope people atleast those people behind cloudys leaving can learn from this!

    Anyways, Thanks for all your hard work @Cloudyfa
    And I know that the g2 community have given you around 2k thanks for all you have done here, so we have appriciated you!

    We all really like all roms developed by Cloudyfa, so I really wish @Cloudyfa could come back to us again in the near future!!
    And those who don't have Cloudyfa's permission, even you have credit to Cloudyfa, you should not take even one part as yours!!

    It's terrible that it has to be this way, one person ruined it for all of us. I just downloaded Cloudy Pro 2, but I don't think I will flash it since it will no longer be supported. :( We need you back, @Cloudyfa!

    OT:
    CloudyPro 2 is still a great rom. By downloading it and using it you still can tribute to the rom chef and maybe make him consider coming back to C- users :). You can imagine how time consuming is:

    1. creating and modifying roms for differrent variants
    2. supporting different variants and bugfixing

    OT:

    I agree, and as soon as I have the time, I'll still flash it. It just sucks that people think they need to steal other people's work and now one of the best G2 devs has left us. Here's to hoping for the return of @Cloudyfa

    Thnak you cloudyfa! excellent work!!! your the best! :laugh:
    Its people like you that make this site so special and helpful!
    thank you for your time and effort in making our phone even better!!!!
    :good:
    First, I wanna thank you for all the kind words I received last couple days. There're so many pm/comment/email cheering me up. And you know, it really encouraged me a lot when I see how pp love my work (even I think my contribution not that so great ;)).
    I just need time to relax, nothing more. Trust me, pp can make me upset, mad,... but never ever can beat me, or stop me doing what I want.

    Anyway, I'm here. I really appreciate what you've done so far.
