****************PURPOSE * * * * * * * * *

REMOVE the boot security that makes device get stuck on Boot when any of the Google or Verizon apps are deleted after rooting, specially VIDEO.APK.

After this, you can delete anything you want to slim down the CPU load and Ram usage.

I have deleted most of Verizon stuff I did jot want, that pesky Slacker app and all unnecessary Google apps. Device boots up every time.

REQUIREMENTS:
Enable USB debugging in your phone's settings, >Settings >Developer Options >OK >USB debugging.

STEPS TO ROOTING YOUR LG SPECTRUM 2:

Connect your phone to your PC via USB cable
Go to ">Settings >PC connection >USB connection type >Internet connection >Ethernet"

Enjoy!

[Kernel][Loki][8-9-13]Broken Out Modded Stock Kernel

Hello all! Here it is Broken Out Modded Kernel for the LG Spectrum 2!!! A big huge thank you needs to be given to djrbliss for finding and creating a workaround for the locked bootloader!!! Now we finally have control of OUR devices!!!!!

What is this?
This is the stock kernel that has been modified using Loki (created by djrbliss) to bypass the boot loader. It has also been modified to not throw the security error when removing the videos.apk.

Changelog
v 1.0
Lokified
Enabled full root


Removed and modified files that send security error

How do I install this?
1.) Download the .zip
2.) Place zip on sdcard
3.) Reboot into 2nd Init Recovery
4.) Back up
5.) Go to install zip from sdcard
6.) Select BrokenOutModdedKernel.zip
7.) Reboot!

Technical Info

This replaces your boot.img which includes the kernel. It has been modified to bypass the locked boot loader. Djrbliss created Loki to do this. I have patched the stock boot.img using Loki and have modified the files that send the security error. This does void your warranty. I did not make you install it. I did not brick your phone. I am not responsible for any mistakes that you have made.

Downloads

V1.0 http://d-h.st/sDW

Special Thanks!!!
djrbliss for finding a way around the bootloader

Be careful updating to 22B. I don't know is this works on that version.

This method was tested on 21B.

I have to double check but I believe I have 22b. And it worked perfectly yesterday.

I was so happy to get rid of all that crap that was on there. You saved me my unlimited data, and 199.00 for the G2. I wish I could afford to get the G2 out right so I can keep my unlimited but who the hell has 600 bucks to buy a phone.

I just posted at the Droid-forums about this. Been meaning to this since Loki was announced, but the wife rarely lets me touch her phone. So has anyone been able to get CM 10 to boot or even try to fix the Korean version?

I saw it on there but I haven't had the balls to try it. I should because this is my personal phone and I have a DNA as my work phone that I use 95% of the time. Is it still the screen flipping problem.

Sorry for the late reply, forgot to subscribe to this thread after I posted. Don't know if you checked out what I have to possibly correct the screen flipping issue. When I get the Note 3, I will get this phone back as a test device.

It looks like VZW is finally pushing Update 22A.

After download phone will restart and apply update. The update fails showing somebkindbof "x0" error and phone restarts telling you that it failed.

This seems to be due to unlocked secure boot and rooted kernel.

I'm going to restore to OEM tomorrow, install update and then install this secure boot work around. But I assume that the update locks everything and might make it harder to do anything.
