Thought I'll create a thread for developers on LG G Pad 7.0/8.0/10.1

I'll try to keep it updated as best as I can. If I forget/get to busy, PM me and tell me what to change

Help Wanted:
If you own a LG G Pad 8.0/10.1, mind doing the following things? It'll help with kernel development/porting CM11/other ROMs
  • Dump partition list/info : instructions
  • Dump /system/build.prop
Possibly need root for stuff below
  • Dump aboot, boot and recovery partition : need partition list first before posting instructions. probably instructions below will continue to work
    Code:
    dd if=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/aboot of=/sdcard/aboot.img
    
    dd if=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/boot of=/sdcard/boot.img
    
    dd if=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/recovery of=/sdcard/recovery.img

- Dump build.prop, boot, aboot and recovery:

I think for now nothing can be done with it (there is no recovery yet). I hope something can be done.

thanks for this.

@icedmayhem also provided similar files over PM, forgot to post updates here...

anyways, it looks like this device has the patched aboot source code.

loki won't work anymore (loki provides a way for us to bypass the locked bootloader to load non-stock recovery/kernels. This means there isn't an easy way to boot a custom recovery(TWRP) or custom ROM.

Can you check if you can unlock the bootloader? Don't know if LG provides a process to do this easily (for GPE / non-GPE devices)

Quote:

strings aboot.img | fgrep overlap
The erase group overlaps the max requested for erase
kernel/ramdisk addresses overlap with aboot addresses.
Device tree addresses overlap with aboot addresses.
Boot image buffer address overlaps with aboot addresses.
Signature read buffer address overlaps with aboot addresses.

Here's the link to the purpledrake thread. Once you download and install on your computer make sure the gpad USB mode is on ptp mode.

No matter what, I can never stay away from android for long.

Yup worked like a champ. Turned on air plane mode, then usb debugging and then ptp. But I had to go to a term win on win7 and run bat file from there. wouldn't run with admin rights from windows explore.
