Most importantly, who has the "sahara error" error, take out the sd card !! if it doesn't work, uninstall the old driver and install a new one. if you read the comments, the link to the new driver has already been dropped it's work on G820U21d
Also when you unlocked bootloader you should flash your saved abl_a / abl_b with fastboot, not qfil. fastboot flash abl_a abl_a.bin
I uploaded files qdloader for qfil here:
Sooo, I have been up all night. And I finally flashed an entire set of Sprint Images which changed the entire look of my phone once it was factory reset, it of course brought up the enter password 30 tries screen, so I held down power and shut it down then reboot into recovery easy peasy.Thanks, I will try what you guys have said, hope it works.
i sent you a pmSooo, I have been up all night. And I finally flashed an entire set of Sprint Images which changed the entire look of my phone once it was factory reset, it of course brought up the enter password 30 tries screen, so I held down power and shut it down then reboot into recovery easy peasy.
Then during the course of events I've downloaded a file simply called basic flasher.
NOW with the older LG G8 Sprint loaded onto the phone I am able to enter ##diag# and access the phone with basic flasher read device info, choose LG, and finally get my phones SPC.
So, I can do what I've been trying to do, and on the other hand this is essentially a downgrade to a version which is entirely rootable so long as you install the entire system, factory reset, then follow the instructions as per another guide if neccessary. but I am not looking to root I just want to be able to change my APN settings and anything else that requires the SPC/MSL
I'll get to uploading ALL the files including the patched boot img that goes with the version of the phone to be flashed and the basic flasher program.
Which btw also brings me to the modified version of DFS which does not connect online and I guess it's a hacked version I really don't know but I was able to send the SPC to the phone with the basic flasher and once it is unlocked as I know from historical CDMA workshop methods you may now access the phone via serial port from your desired program.
And in DFS I am able to read/write just about everything so I am finally done with this.
and so now I am here: (Which is for: DFS guide)
Hi guys, I spent a lot of time trying to do this and would like to share my SUCCESSFUL efforts with you all! First let me clarify some of the terminology. Sprint and other carriers program their hardware EPROM to their network specs and lock...forum.xda-developers.com
This is actually the first time I root a phone, and I'm still stuck at this same error in QFIL, even after installing your QDLoader.I uploaded files qdloader for qfil here:
I can't root my phone anymore, after I messed it up the first time removing sprint apps, I reinstalled the original boot_b. If the phone gets stuckin a magisk version of boot_b bootloop get to fastboot via EDL and load the engineering abl_a to A & B, the n flash original abl's and boot in fastboot. But when I create a magisk boot_b.bin patched file I just get a bootloop.
At least I can get into fastboot and EDL mode over and over again.
On another note one time it switched to slot A and asked for a password so I had to go back to fastboot and use the command fastboot --set-active=b
This did not work with minimal ADB & Fastboot I downloaded the SDK version
And now the version of the qualcomm driver from the original link works no sahara error but it doesn't change anything about trying to flash the magisk.img to boot_b (my active slot)
I just want my MSL so I can edit my APN when not on Sprint!
I've really messed up and now I can only get my phone into edl mode. It won't start or anything. No download mode or anything. Just EDL and that's it. Can someone please help?
On the g8x sprint, I cannot find such menu nor com.lge.hiddenmenu.... frustratingI sucessfully used shortcut master lite to locate the edit for the apn on the Sprint G8 thinQ!!! So now it can be programmed for ANY Network! And now I have the LTE conncection on H2O wireless on the Sprint LG G8 Thinq.
The main settings in the phone menu remain greyed out but added APN's now appear but can only be edited in the App. Via
com.lge.hiddenmenu (409 items) Thsi will have an Android Icon next to it.

Touch in TWRP only work when booting using the button comboMy experience was Nothing like yours. I had a stock v50. In the thread I linked they did discuss the touch functionality in twrp. I launch recovery from vol - and power buttons and touch control was fine. The only thing worthy of comment from my point of view was, after twrp install I had to re-root through magisk manager and QFIL.
thanks for reply
my devices: lg g8 sprint g820u21d
i think i solved it, just restore the abl_a and abl_b but my device doesnt have root. i follow magisk root step , try many time but no luck.
edit: Finally i dit it !!
