    Default LG G2 (D802) Soft Bricked after CM 11 update - Can't get phone recognized

    Hi All,

    I've updated my device on 21 MAR with a Nightly update. The install went well. No problems. Yesterday I rebooted my device for the first time since this update and it got stuck op the LG splash screen.

    I have tried wiping everything. No result. Unfortunately I wasnt able to try and restore my backup, I saved it on the PC and deleted it from the phone for more storage space.

    And this is exactly the problem I'm facing. Eversince I got the phone, I've never been able to connect it to my PC. It did connect to my work PC, but only from inside Cyanogenmod. Now that I cant access CM I cannot connect the phone to PC anymore. It keeps giving the same error: MTP USB Device: Failed

    I've tried installing, uninstalling, re-installing LG drivers, I've tried LG Mobile Support Tool, I've tried renaming the C:\windows\inf\WPDMTP.inf, I've tried, conversely, selecting this inf for the MTP installation, I've tried connecting with ADB Sideloader: No connection possible.

    If I could only get the phone recognized as a USB drive by any computer I could flash a new ROM and go from there, but I'm running out of options...

    Any help is much appreciated!

    What about them menova micro sd adaptor things, worth a try putting a rom on an sd card and trying that, not sure if it will work though. Gotta be worth $10 to try

    Can you enter download mode?

    (Long press volume up + connect USB from computer to phone)

    If you can enter download mode, then you can flash the stock D802 firmware using LG flash tool.

    J Miller: Thanks for the suggestion, but I need to connect a PC to push the firmware over to the phone.

    SactoKings: Thanks. I can get the phone in D/L mode no problem, but also in D/L mode it will not connect properly to the PC:

    It tries to install the following:
    • USB Composite - OK
    • LGE Andoid USB Serial Port (COM5) - OK
    • CDC Serial / USB Modem - FAIL


    Then, when I start the Flash tool with the phone connected it says: LG USB / Parallel Lock Key not detected.

    I've also tried connecting the phone on another PC at work, but that doesnt recognize the phone either. Maybe it's because they're all Windows 7.

    Any suggestions?

    *EDIT: Is it true that other versions of Windows might have less trouble detecting the phone? SHould I take the trouble to make a double boot WindowsXP on my PC?

    I've only heard of an issue with Windows 8. I have Windows 7 and haven't had any issues using flash tool. You probably need to install the correct LG drivers or didn't unlock flash tool.

    This YouTube video has a link in description to LG drivers. And the Megalock DLL file will unlock flash tool if that's the issue.



    This guide has the files required to restore international G2.

    Just saw that you have the serial port set to COM 5. Try changing it to COM 41 in device manager.

    Yeah, I saw that in the video!

    I don't get to that part though. Because the CDC Serial refuses to install there is no access to the phone unfortunately.

    I have now tried with different drivers as well (as per this thread: How to install LG G2 drivers - Page 3 - xda-developers ) but neither the standard, nor the verizon drivers work.

    This is so frustrating. All I need is either the CDC, or the MTP driver to work.

    Any suggestions will be much appreciated.

    Hi All,

    I did it!

    If you run into this nasty prblem, just follow the description in the last post on here: How to install LG G2 drivers - Page 3 - xda-developers

    Get the KOUSH ADB driver: Koush

    After days of searching this is the only solution that got my phone to connect to the computer. Completely rediculous, but I'm all the happier for it!

    Thanks guys for your help.
