Lgup no uppercut(yet), ive been through uninstall/reinstall, trying to recognize the device. But if the tot is an insecure image is it rooted?

root?
Hey, I just got here. What is the hold up in rooting this phone? could someone give me a rundown? LG is always a problem.

Said hold up, in short, is a device running MM with no stock firmware and a non-unlockable bootloader. Most root exploits have been attempted, including Dirty Cow and even as lowly as KingRoot. Scroll back and read some of the thread for more info.

Now hold up, I got a stock tot, the headers on the file identify it as ls676. I just haven't got it to flash due to insecure image. Which I assume is adbd insecure "cross fingers". I should have a drop box up with the files for testing soon.so we actually might have more than we think.

How do you think we could go about making it flash? Maybe it's for a different carrier variant of the phone. Perhaps there's some way to dig inside in the tot and find out the exact model number of the intended phone, just to make sure

Ive been poking at it with a hex editor, but it can be broken into a bin file. But as far as i got was install lg driver, lgup, lgup_cy, copy/paste common file in model directory of lgup. Restart pc, begin flash.... Flash fail due to secure device but insecure image. Im currently digging into all the .dll files in the directory to see if we can use another flash tool, like odin or something else to skip the secure image lock that the sevice has. Once we get a way back to vz3 then we can poke at temp root without consequence.

I wouldn't mind being a test dummy I'm a complete noob as far as all this technical talk is concerned but if someone wouldn't mind walking me through it ill do it, my main concern is messing up my phone service and irreversibly bricking my phone
