[BACKUP] (V510) GPE ONLY (L 5.0 LRX21P.L004) & (KK 4.4.4 KTU84P.L002) Stock For TWRP

OP djkinetic

This is a TWRP backup of the stock firmware for V510 GPE GPAD 8.3. They have already been updated. It is completely stock no mods, no root, no busybox. This should ensure that you are able to take future OTAs without issue. Many GPE users have been having problems with the OTAs. The reason is that the OTA does a system verification and any type of modification causes it to fail.

How to flash this:

1. Reboot into bootloader
2. Flash TWRP if you don't already have it. Current version is 2.8.1.0 fastboot flash recovery xxxxxxxxxxxxx.img (where xxxxx is the filename)
3. Reboot System
4. Copy the entire contents of the zip file to your TWRP/BACKUPS/LG0000XXXXXXXX folder. Make sure you copy the folder 2014-11-30--23-35-25 LRX21P.L004 or 2014-06-26--18-41-18 KTU84P.L002. If you don't have a backups folder, create one in TWRP by choosing Backup, then backup something like the boot partition.
5. Reboot to Recovery Vol Dwn+Pwr or adb reboot recovery.
6. Choose Restore and select 2014-11-30--23-35-25 LRX21P.L004 or 2014-06-26--18-41-18 KTU84P.L002
7. Once finished Reboot System.
8. Upon boot you should be greeted with the usual Setup screens.
9. Reboot into bootloader
10. (Optional for Kit Kat) Flash stock recovery: fastboot flash recovery 17-recovery.img
11. Reboot into system
.
Flashing the stock recovery is optional however if you want a completely stock experience and ensure future OTAs, you probably want to do so. Also note that you must unroot to take any future OTAs.

L Backup contains cache and stock recovery partition, if you want to keep TWRP or root, you will have to flash or boot into TWRP.

You did an excellent job on this thread. Thanks for doing this for our small community.

BTW: regarding recovery for our device, the latest (and in fact only) that I see is TWRP 2.7.0.1 in the Original Android Development section.

Agreed. I wasn't able to flash 4.4.4 any other way. Tried everything, kept getting errors. This finally worked!

Figured it will come in handy to have this online for everyone in the future...when I bought the device when it was announced thought there would be more dev on it...but that hasn't been the case. Luckily we at least have twrp.

Do I unzip the folder before I move it to the backup folder?

I was not able to update using your image and I don't know why. Everything was done correctly as far as I know. I downloaded and unpacked the zip and placed it in the back apps folder of TWRP and rebooted into recovery and tried restore with no success during the system restore it stops halfway through and says failed.
I tried downloading the file twice, installing the file from my computer, changing my SD card, deleting everything and trying, deleting just dalvik cache a,updating the partition separately, and was able to update the boot partition but not system and data. I honestly don't know what the trouble is as I was able to restore my own back up several times.if anybody has any insight into what is happening here please tell me. I would really like to install the update! I don't know why it is not allowing me to.
