[EOL] Nexus 5X Bootloop of Death (BLOD) - Andorid Oreo Monthly Security patches & fix

Warning:
DO NOT TRY TO APPLY ANY MODIFICATION HERE IF YOUR PHONE ISN'T A BOOTLOOPING DEVICE.

Read first:
This thread is based on the following thread & If you are new to the bootloop issue, please refer the below thread by @XCnathan32 to get your device fixed.
Nexus 5X bootloop of death fix (BLOD) | 7/30 Huge performance update! By @XCnathan32

What this thread is about?
This thread is about BLOD fixes for monthly security updates (Probably OTA). I decided to start a separate thread for these updates since there are no BLOD fixes uploaded for update releases of the Oreo

Disclaimer
I do NOT hold any responsibility for bricking devices or any other harm on your devices by using my content since this work isn't based on any kind of monetization. Just to be simple, I do build these images for my device and just sharing with you all since everyone doesn't have the ability to build these images their-own. Each of the files I have uploaded here are tested on my device before posting (only partly, I don't have the time to test all functionality as bullhead is not my daily driver).

General pre-conditions (Pre-Requirements)
  1. General knowledge about using fastboot & adb
  2. A booltoop fixed device (with an unlocked bootloader/OEM unlocking enabled), as per the original thread by @XCnathan32
  3. fastboot & adb installed on the system (Windows platform preferred)
  4. Downloaded files of your choice for the fix
  5. Refer the pre-conditions in each update for more requirements

Guides/Downloads
Please refer the 1st post of this thread

Information
- Please let me know if you are unclear about anything regarding the process, steps or files. I will try to optimize the guide to make it user friendly with the time.
- Let me know if the provided links are not functioning. (I'm looking for a reliable hosting platform to upload future files)
- Please be kind-enough to share the knowledge with the community if you find any easy methods, workarounds or any other tricks while doing the process.

Good luck guys. :)

Step by step:

Current URL for updates
https://forum.xda-developers.com/nexus-5x/general/nexus-5x-bootloop-death-blod-andorid-t3683926

To do monthly security patch updates, visit the top of the current URL. Download 3 required files: System Image .zip, boot .img file, and recovery .img file. Unzip the system image zip file. Copy the folder with all these files locally to your ADB folder.

Navigate within extracted zip file folder to find flash-all.bat file and edit. Find "fastboot -w update" line and delete -w so phone is not wiped on update. Only skip this step if you do want the phone to be wiped on update.

Boot phone into bootloader mode by pressing and holding volume down and power button from powered off state. From command prompt window, run flash-all.bat file to install update. Once done, the phone will bootloop again.

Boot phone into bootloader mode again by pressing and holding volume up and power button. Flash updated boot .img by running command with current boot .img file name, example:
fastboot flash boot boot-4Core-bullhead-opm3.171019.013.img

Optional, flash updated recovery .img by running command with current recovery .img file name, example:
fastboot flash recovery recovery-img-4core-opm3.171019.013.img

Boot phone normal using Start onscreen option.

After flashing the modified images, clear cache via the stock recovery

This should work on all custom roms that supports the stock kernel. I won't recommend a custom roms since I've not tested them personally. You guys can test and spread the news with the community. I'm totally cool with the stock rom that I can customize myself. :)

Is that why this one works on your 4 core method? Gapps are included and i think its same stock kernel. Ive tried this rom but some lag because 4 core i guess. [ROM][OPR6.170623.013][AOSP]Google PixelROM v8.0a for LG Nexus 5X[8.0.0][2017/08/30]. Would this have something to do with vendor img and bootloader and radio? Shouldnt i be able to flash any 8.0 rom?

My 4 core image doesn't differ from the stock version other than the number of cores used for tasks and I see that you are referring to an older version (OPR6.170623.013) that may not fully compatible with the October release.

No i was saying i do have this rom on my phone. It did work. But i think only roms that gapps included. And that one for Oreo seems to be the one only included that works and stock rom

My 5X was lying at my desk and all of a sudden, it wont boot up any more. I booted to bootloader and flashed the boot image 4 core file.
Now it wont start up, nor does it keep rebooting..

Oops! Bad luck for you. Could you go through all the steps in the guide or you just flashed the boot image? I need more information to think of what has happened.
Anyway I don't think flashing this boot image makes any sense on wont booting up your device since I have tested it on my device before upload.

No you didn't miss a thing as far as I see.
But please enlighten me, Why did you flashed the 4 core boot image if you could boot up the phone without flashing it? :eek:

the phone is usually in a bootloop unless I put the motherboard in the oven, After the oven treatment it the phone works for a good couple of days then it goes back into a bootloop.

I did the following
1. Flashed System image for October release.
2. Flashed 4 core boot image
3. For safety erased cache

The phone won't start up now and is still not going past the Google logo.

I wonder why your device failed. I just built the October build for you again (Tested with my own device again).

boot-img-4core-bullhead-opr4.170623.009.img
recovery-img-4core-bullhead-opr4.170623.009.img

Flash the October system image and then, boot (and recovery - optional). Please try this boot image and let me know if it get booted so I can replace the original files with this.

    Step by step process to install the monthly security updates and BLOD fix

    Current URL for updates
    https://forum.xda-developers.com/nexus-5x/general/nexus-5x-bootloop-death-blod-andorid-t3683926

    To do monthly security patch updates, visit the top of the current URL. Download 3 required files: System Image .zip, boot .img file, and recovery .img file. Unzip the system image zip file. Copy the folder with all these files locally to your ADB folder.

    Navigate within extracted zip file folder to find flash-all.bat file and edit. Find "fastboot -w update" line and delete -w so phone is not wiped on update. Only skip this step if you do want the phone to be wiped on update.

    Boot phone into bootloader mode by pressing and holding volume down and power button from powered off state. From command prompt window, run flash-all.bat file to install update. Once done, the phone will bootloop again.

    Boot phone into bootloader mode again by pressing and holding volume down and power button. Flash updated boot .img by running command with current boot .img file name, example:
    fastboot flash boot boot-4Core-bullhead-opm3.171019.013.img

    Optional, flash updated recovery .img by running command with current recovery .img file name, example:
    fastboot flash recovery recovery-img-4core-opm3.171019.013.img

    Boot phone normal using Start onscreen option.

    Thank you T1mb3 for the continued monthly fixes!

    Thanks to this thread and others I managed to fix my bootlooping 5x, which is now working fine again. However I have had the automatic update notification for a couple of weeks now, prompting me to update to 8.1.0 which I understand I can't do without going back to bootlooping again.

    I'm struggling to understand what I need to do now to get this update installed manually, and I'm hoping someone can explain steps by steps?

    8.1 Working boot.img

    8.1 boot.img:
    https://drive.google.com/open?id=17x50uNBszznaOonIRc8IIaPswKRE4aFq

    TWRP 3.2.0-0:
    [Removed] I've seen multiple complaints in other places that there are issues with 3.2 on the 5x right now. I haven't done enough testing to see it for myself, but i'd rather avoid spreading a file that will cause people issues.

    I tried modifying the latest elementalX Kernel also, but I can't get it to boot.

    Changes are the same as were made here:
    https://github.com/xcnathan32/4Core-Android-O-5X/commit/a4814e7e9c05e09d41ad1621f9d95f7eea409d77

    Also, make sure that you are flashing all of the new images when updating. 8.1 includes a new bootloader, radio, vendor.img, system.img, boot.img, and recovery.img.

    Hi,

    I have created a small Python script to automate the process of modifying the boot image to reduce the chance of human mistakes and also make it easier to apply the same fix to future versions.

    You can find it at https://github.com/pawitp/nexus-5x-blod-fix

    Feel free to use, take, modify, etc.
