Default [vk810][altev]stock 4.2.2/4.4.2 ROM backup (using TWRP)

If you have a non-working android/recovery/bootloop, here is a way to restore FULL STOCK with a PC
http://forum.xda-developers.com/lg-g...stock-t2800857


NOTE:
This is only for the vk810 Verizon LTE model (product name altev)

/system and boot.img (kernel) is backed up. stock recovery IS NOT included (scroll to bottom of post)


Download: (neither has recovery.img)

A) (JB4.2) Fully stock 4.2.2 system&boot.img, prerooted

B) (JB4.2) Stock 4.2.2 system&boot.img with a lot of crapware removed, prerooted

C) (KK4.4)Fully stock 4.4.2 system&boot.img, prerooted (you'll need to install SuperSU apk manually though) mirror
  1. You need TWRP installed
  2. Untar and copy the folder somewhere on the device (Windows: use p7zip)
  3. Boot to TWRP
  4. Backup your current ROM.
  5. Yes, remember to backup your current ROM
  6. Wipe cache/dalvik/data
  7. Restore this backup within TWRP
  8. Reboot to ROM
  9. Once ROM boots, it'll say "Preparing your tablet" and get stuck there for some time (probably copying files from the /system to the empty /data partition




If you want to restore stock recovery, you'll need to do it manually via dd

just copy it to your internal storage and flash with dd

open your terminal on your pc enter the following commands

Code:
adb shell

su

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

exit

exit
just make sure the commands are exactly right

Is there a version without the junk removed coming?
*NOTE* I'll never recommend using a toolkit to root your device because if you don't know how to root your phone manually, you shouldn't be rooting your phone. -KidCarter93

You probably don't have it in the right folder. Do a backup of your rom and then place this in the same folder as that one is in.

I've updated OP with a version of fully stock (prerooted, with all the bloat/crapware)

Will upload 4.4.2 once I (or DrGravy) gets TWRP working on 4.4.2

If you tried OTA update with TWRP recovery and get stuck in a bootloop for TWRP
