    Post [HOW TO] Recover from any hardbrick or red case in 9008 mode without ANY BOXEs

    loonycgb2 Awesomeslayerg The KDZ/dz extraction python tool has problems extracting the LUNs partitions with several Pie KDZs I have tried and, as I might have mentioned in the telegram discussion, even when it does extract the Oreo content it doesn't always generate proper XML...

    Hi not sure if this thread is getting any attention but giving it a shot to ask a couple of questions. I am picking up a cheap jade primo mainly to use with continuum at my office.

    Post [HOW TO] Bootloader Unlock any G7 ThinQ except T-Mobile w/o octoplus

    NOT with the Canadian version of the LG G7, the 710AWM. I have flashed the ULM firmware, all of them, it still does not give you access to fastboot/bootlaoder mode. We simply cannot boot the phone either through adb or via hardware key sequence to Fastboot mode regardless of which KDZ firmware...

    Hey there fellas sorry for late reply , was tied up with family things. From what I can tell, any G7 that had no access to fastboot on Oreo can't gain such access simply by flashing a KDZ file; I know for certain this does not work on the Canadian model and yes I also tried GFI kdz files, but...

    Post [HOW TO] Bootloader Unlock any G7 ThinQ except T-Mobile w/o octoplus

    Hmmm, no I didn't try that specific KDZ as it is the 10g firmware and not the one used in the guide which is a newer ULM Oreo firmware, the 11G. Is there something special about the firmware you are asking about?

    Hello folks, Sorry I should have been a bit more clear in my earlier message. What I meant to say is that while, no, there is no problem crossflashing the ULM kdz file or any other kdz file from the EM, EMW etc versions this will NOT open up access to fastboot if the device did not have such...

    Post Found a way to unlock the bootloader and get root on all models!

    I hear ya. I posted the V35 bootloader from an LGUP dump, a few pages back. But really it's just for reference purpose, there is no way to flash just this bootloader on its own ; you need octoplus or medusa boxes. If you want to get the v35 engineering BL again you could ask Vasily to redo the...

    Post Found a way to unlock the bootloader and get root on all models!

    A couple of things here. First of all i am not sure why the other fella is telling you to go to recovery in order to root etc. You dont need twrp for root -- you simply flash a magisk-patched boot.img with Fastboot BUT of course none of that matters if you don't have fastboot access. Second...

    Full partition Dump via LGUP does not work on these phones unless you have flashed an engineering LAF ( download mode); I know, the layers of bullshit required for this phone is of epic proportions. How are the trees!? ;)

    Post Found a way to unlock the bootloader and get root on all models!

    Yeah man the same thing happened to me as well. You have no fastboot because when they flashed the full sprint software for your phone they did an overwrite of the v35 engineering bootloader that OP ( Vasily) sends to our phones. There is absolutely no way to get fastboot back at that point even...

    Hi, Yes, that is exactly what i did. A fresh KDZ install via LGUP using Partition DL. I selected ALL partitions minus the abl_a to keep the v35 bootloader intact. I then boot to my active slot a in fastboot mode and do fastboot --set-active=b and then confirm that b is infact the active slot. As...
