Hello Everyone

Starting now, this will be the help thread for a rom I'm going to be releasing that will help get things rolling...
Currently back from the holidays & have my hands on the 13B image & working diligently to please our users.

We have a great community here, just lacking in knowledge ( myself included ). I believe we can make a very strong use of flashfire by Chainfire

I've got my goals set & I've accomplished most of them this weekend out of town, have a few more steps and hurdles to jump through but should have the rom out soon.

Until then, requests are open regarding rom mods.



This will be strictly for 13B USERs ONLY!


Original thread post:

Verizon LG G4

I've been busting my hump on this LG G4 and made some progress, right now I'm in need of the 12A System.img ( can find on my own ) but I need the Matching boot.img as well.

If anyone can help me out, that would be great!


so far, I have on every reboot: ( Without Apps )
selinux passive
insecure adbd
init.d

Currently working on Mods & what not,

Thanks,
~Eugene

No one had the boot.img of 12A?

I'll up the stakes a bit then..

Now I need both 10A boot.img plus 12A boot.img.

I see all these threads, but no replies that are helpful, half promises of anything.

Help me help you..

I'll be releasing a custom system.img for 11A soon to help get inspiring developers going..

Try sending xdabbeb an email. He might have the boot image you are looking for.

Yeah the community has gone a bit different from what it used to be. Sadly it seems that many feel entitled and don't appreciate the work that our devs, themers, etc put into bringing about the great things we enjoy. If I had taken 12A you would have it.

Yeah bit different:

did make some headway, my touchscreen not so flaky.. Screen is more responsive now, or it just placebo effect. Quadrant score did jump as well...

More testing is needed at this point

So does anyone know the proper way to DD /system for a back-up?

when I dd my system for a back-up, it results back to me having to kdz.

Is the rooted image signed by LG or am I doing it wrong?
dd if=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/system bs=8192 seek=65536 count=548352 of=/data/media/0/root1.img

eitherway it no longer boots..

however, I'm off to wally-world to get a new Keyboard for my Linux machine...
I can however build an .apk that will automate everything i've been doing.

and given the size of things, it might be best to build it as and updater..

You're issuing the wrong command. Seek would be used when you're looking to write to your emmc starting at the 65536 block. When you're looking to read from your emmc and write the output to your internal storage you'd want to use skip.

Code:
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0 bs=8192 skip=65536 count=548352 of=/data/media/0/system.img

Thank you!

Was getting distracted by failure, thanks again for responding to help out.
Thanks again, my back-ups are now working correctly..


on the flipside of things, my screen is no longer having missed typed..
I'll try and have an image up tonight.

@eugene373, @xdabbeb:
Have either of you been able to produce a 12a Image you would be willing to upload for me?
much appreciated,
-ryan

I've not pulled anything from the 12A image as of yet, as the masses are on 11A, as of curretly I'm still in need of the 12A boot.img.
If anyone wantd to do a pull of the partitions of 12A or 10B it would speed thing up for me. I realize the images are very large & most people will struggle finding hosting.

I could diff what changed, but since the official kdz is 11A I likely not bother until i can get things in order on my side as I'm still learning the phone.

I suppose I could update to 12A without officailly getting it regarding merging into 11A, but once again need to see what changed in the boot.img if anything

can you give me the paths, i.e. /system/app > /system/priv-app

I don't have Demo mode, or not sure of the apk name.. as I'm not seeing it at all.

I'll be sure to check that this don't put the phone into a non-booting device. I've had some issues removing app's that were listed as safe, only to find that a factory reset results in non-booting.

    some pictures are post a thread back.

    System.img just DD like normal. & I always recommend a wipe, so do a SD backup prior.
