Did you ever resolve this problem? The same thing is happening to me.

i cant seem to flash via lgflashtool 2014 cuz it needs kdz n in TWRP u need .zip file...what other flashing method is available?

The only flashing method that has ever worked for me when my phone was bricked along with Corrupted recovery is the .TOT method. And that I'm afraid is the one from where you have to start all over from Out of the box experience with 4.4 Kitkat. If the LGFlashTool2014 does not work for you, I recommend the LGFlashtoolv1.8.1 + the crack. It will not ask you for the KDZ and should allow you to downgrade without any hassle.

There are 2 things you will need:
LGD851AT-01-V10c.zip & LGFLASHv160.dll

This will point you in the right direction. Just scroll down to the text where it says "2014 TOT Method (Old/Outdated)"

Good luck ;)

    Solution to LGUP LG G3 unknown

    While an old thread, it'll be found in searches. For anybody who gets "UNKNOWN" device with LGUP for the LG G3, I found that LGUP for the G3 is often distributed with the wrong DLL file. See the details here, post #11.
