    I got stuck bootlooping at lg screen. Let it do that for about ten minutes and pulled battery to do hard key recovery. At first it took me to stock recover i thought i was a goner. Lol.

    did it work for anybody else if so i will reflash.

    Nope. Same error message. You should probably wait on the other testers. Maybe I'm doing something wrong.

    I reboot into recovery.
    Factory reset/wipe data
    clear cache
    clear dalvik
    clear battery
    install zip from sd

    this is the method i did for all three. The first from zva. Second two from broken out.

    Does it matter what rom we started with before flashing?
