    3. Reboot to CWM Recovery
    4. MAKE A BACKUP!!!!!!!!!!
    5. Wipe data/Factoy reset
    6. Install ROM from sdcard
    7. Reboot

    The deodexed one. Had to do a factory reset. Thankfully it returned me back to stock.

    You should ALWAYS follow directions when doing something risky like installing a ROM when there is no way to get into recovery from power off. If you don't in the development world then most of the time bad things happen. Not to be mean or anything.

    Yes you are right. It was my mistake. Not blaming it on the ROM.

    Only blame something on the ROM if it was made by venkat kamesh on XDA. He is a effing liar and bricked my LG Ally. Thank god I fixed it! Alright... that was not very nice of me to say.... but people make mistakes and that's okay.

    first u use recovery to flash roms lol and if u want to go fully stock including recovery make sure u have the stock recovery zip on ur sdcard and flash it right after flashing stock rom while still in recovery... [this will delete ur recovery and leave u with only the stock reset menu!!!]

    Ok let me get a understanding of this:

    1. Flash stock rom via TRWP (do full wipe if I want)

    2. After flashing stock rom do not reboot but flash recovery using the TWRP.

    3. Reboot to stock rom and reinstall everything including apps and repinning anything to the sd card within google apps.

    Did I miss a step?

    Kinda a factory reset formats the data partition which is all user data and caches including internal sd... What i do is a manual format of system and data under mounts and storage which leaves internal sd intact... Nvr wipe system unless u have a backup or a known good rom to flash as this wipes the operating system of the device [ie: the rom] hope this clarifies for ya :)

    Ok so I could just wipe system and data (not sure what thats under in TRWP) and it would most likely leave my apps intact? If I'm correct?

    @SuperR instead of w5c_stock_4.4.2.zip it should be l41c_stock_4.4.2.zip. w5c is the code name for LG Realm, LG Optimus Exceed 2 and the LG Ultimate 2. A LG Realm stock ROM has different software then a LG Ultimate 2 stock ROM. I am just letting you know.

    I always label roms with the device codename, so w5c is correct
