Dunno if I should laugh or not, but after flashing the v35 eng ABL via QFIL (flashed back to stock ABL later), I can only reach DL mode. That obviously helped me install the stock rom, so all is good there. But now I can't enter the bootloader. Whatever button combo I use, I end up in DL mode??? I guess some partition is missing or is in the wrong slot??? Can anyone help/direct me to where to find LAF, Bootloader and whatever files needed and tell me the correct partitions to flash??? Just a question: on QFIL, isn't it important to choose slot, and how do I do that?
My goal is to have the needed img flashed to be able to enter fastboot so I can lock the Bootloadeer again...
Want my phone to be "legal" now when Sprint is T-mobile, to be able to upgrade one day
Very confusing. You installed the 'stock rom'? Sprint doesn't make their kdz available, so what 'stock rom' did u flash with lgup?
Also, it's not a mystery which partition to flash which image file, laf goes to laf, abl goes to abl, etc etc etc.
fastboot and twrp are the only ways I know how to switch slots. In qfil, it's easy to know which slot you're flashing to by the name abl_a and abl_b, or laf_a and laf_b, etc etc. If a partition doesn't have a or b, that means there's only 1 of them, and it's used on both sides.
The only way to re-lock the bootloader is if the phone is completely stock, no modifications whatsoever. Then use fastboot (v35 eng abl) to relock it.
If you're just concerned about trade in value, I wouldn't worry too much, I think all they care about is that the screen works and the device is functional. They give you so little for a trade in, almost better off selling it outright.
