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 ;)
