Did you install TWRP Recovery and then install the latest V10L OTA on LG G3 D855 , now you can’t get your phone to boot normally, but you do see TWRP?

Here’s the easy fix:

If you have ADB access, plug in your phone and run this:

  • adb shell
  • dd if=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/fota of=/sdcard/fota-backup.img
  • dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/fota

Then you should be able to successfully reboot your phone via the TWRP menu option, or via a simple reboot command in adb.

If you DONT have ADB access (because of an early build of TWRP), you can simply use TWRP’s awesome "terminal command" option to run the following:

  • dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/fota

You’ll have to type that whole thing out, and be VERY careful with spaces and punctuation. One wrong letter and you could nuke your phone.

After that finishes, you can reboot and continue on your happy way!

Let me know if this helps anyone! If not, please try the next method:

Fix:

Flash LG_G3_Flash2FixStuckRecovery.zip to backup the current stuck fota/misc partitions and then fix them to allow proper booting.

Flashing LG_G3_Flash2FixStuckRecovery.zip creates a backup of your FOTA and Misc partitions in the /sdcard/FOTAnMisc_Backup/ folder.

1. Download the LG_G3_Flash2FixStuckRecovery.zip and place it on your phone. You can use TWRP’s MTP feature to copy it from computer to phone, use OTG w/connected storage containing zip or use adb push to get the file onto your phone.

  • adb push LG_G3_Flash2FixStuckRecovery.zip /sdcard/

DOWNLOAD FROM CODEFIRE HERE

2. Flash LG_G3_Flash2FixStuckRecovery.zip in recovery or use adb commands below to fix boot issues..

  • adb shell
  • su
  • dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/fota
  • dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/misc bs=256 count=1 conv=notrunc
  • reboot

3. Finished.

If you are still booting into TWRP/CWM then you may have accidentally flashed the custom recovery img to the boot partition slot instead of the recovery partition slot. Reflash the rom in TWRP/CWM which should fix the boot.img… or download the required boot.img, place on root of internal storage ( /sdcard/ ) and flash the boot.img in TWRP/CWM.

  • dd if=/sdcard/boot.img of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/boot
    reboot
