I asked if Rogers version work and someone responded +1. What does that mean?yes or no?

Sent from my LG-D852 using XDA Premium HD app
Are you asking if LS990 version of autorec LP (linked in OP) works on D852 or if D852 version was made ?
In the first case, the answer is no, you can not use LS990 version on D852, because it uses proper LS990 partition (aboot, boot, laf + TWRP) (D855 version is linked in my answer too http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=60122748&postcount=4), so if you use it in another model, you'll brick it.
In the second case, you can search in play store if D852 model exists, and if not, ask @bender_007 if he could do it for this model (he'll surely need that someone provides him aboot,boot and laf kk version of D852 for doing it, by extracting them from kdz/tot).

For begining, it needs someone to provide a link to an official firmware in KK version for your model (kdz/tot).
Following, from this file, we'll be able to extract needed partitions.
It needs bumped TWRP for D852 too (link ?).
With all of that, and if he's ok, @bender_007 will be abble to make a rogers D852 LP autorec (it surely needs one or two experienced testers too).
Don't worry about PM, i'm pretty sure @bender_007 is reading us, and he's realy a nice guy ;)

Does the App for D855 also "bumps" it automatically or do I have to do something else then?
It lives bump kernel (not sure about live bump, because LS990 contains boot, so it contains pre-bumped kernel, anyway you have nothing to do about it) and flash bumped TWRP. Nothing to do else ;)

edit: no live bump for the moment for D855 too, it contains pre-bumped kernel
