Prompt [DEV] Project G4A

I need someone who can dump aboot partition (NOT boot, ABOOT) from his L5 / L7. It doesn't matter the rom you have, the color of your device, your wallpaper, your kernel or your baseband.
How to dump it:
dd={partition} of=/sdcard/aboot.img
Upload it and reply with the link, something great is coming aka (G*4A*)!
PS: before u ask, aboot is bootloader partition (LK)

Cool, so you want to try a dualboot, and some advanced features like that, available in a Grub? Share the risks about making that with our phone.

We also think that we need more options about roms, but maybe isn't my work share this with you.

Regards.

Here it is stated that the first 1 MB of the flash memory should be reserved for the aboot partition. So, @linuxxxx can you ask your friend for a partition contents example for me to have a look and mess around with my phone in the mmcblk0 structure? maybe we can find the required things.

UPDATE!!!!!
Afther various attempts at finding the aboot partition i think i've found the bugger. I hope @linuxxxx and his friend port G4A to L7. I do not have L5 but hope fully i will edit the post once again with the steps i took to find the partition. Or if you found the guide and want to know the partition's name, the name is (hopefully this one is because i have compared it with LG G2 and LG G and Pro partition layouts and this one seems to be the aboot) "mmcblk0p5". Some mini info abut the file:

size=4096KB
name=aboot.img
contents=what's needed (hopefully)
partition=mmcblk0p5

Not needed, I guess. L5 and L7 have same partition layout.
