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

If you want FULL STOCK, you'll need to go here:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/lg-g...stock-t2800857

Below = my backup with some bloatware removed

This is a backup taken using TWRP of the stock LG 4.2.2 ROM

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

/system and boot.img (kernel) is backed up (/data is backed up too, with 0 files in it). stock recovery IS NOT included (scroll to bottom of post)


Download: stock LG 4.2.2 for vk810 Verizon LTE model

I've removed a lot of junk apps from this version below. Let me upload a clean version (with all the junk)
(a lot of junk apps removed) my site(last resort)
  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

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.
