Hey guys, as you already might have noticed, I am a bit active regarding development for this device. This is all thanks to @JoseVigil as he sent me a device.

While working on the workaround to disable offline charging, I got to know the device a bit, also regarding security measures of the bootloader to not accept custom boot and recovery images.
However, I have a way to modify the images so the bootloader doesn't throw me a security error but accepts the images.


With that being said, it's time for an unsecured boot image.
In case you don't know what "unsecured" means, these are the key features:
  • ADB on early boot
  • ADB as root by default
  • Enabling "adb remount"

Requirements
  • V10 firmware
  • Root
  • A working adb environment

How to flash:
  1. Download the .img file to the root of your internal sd (/sdcard)
  2. Open an adb shell as root
  3. run the following command:
    Code:
    dd if=/sdcard/unsecured_boot.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0 bs=1024 seek=18432
  4. reboot the device and be happy :D

The next step is a properly working CWM recovery, and as it turns out, I happen to have a sneak peek :p

And for GPL reasons, I have used the stock zImage.

Tested CWM_5.5.0.4_d680.img on LG G686 with D68620d-EUR-XX ROM it is 4.4.2 and it works.
Unsecured boot.img for V10 is not flash only CWM_5.5.0.4_d680.img beacose i am on D68620d-EUR-XX ROM it 20d version.
Thanks for your hard work hope that you will provide Unsecured boot.img for V20d.
I can upload boot.img for V20d if you have time to make unloked bootloader for as with D68620d-EUR-XX ROM.
