Hello all,

Now that official CM12.1 (and other ROMs) builds based on the new lollipop kernel and blobs are running, it's time I post these here. These are bootstacks with the latest images from G2 lollipop builds that are REQUIRED to run these new builds. I have added asserts to the CM builds and you will not be allowed to flash the builds unless you are on 4.4.2 or 5.0.x bootstacks. The 4.4.2 ones will work (if you ever took the 4.4.2 OTA, you have these) HOWEVER, the 5.0.x ones are more stable and the 4.4.2 modem has a tendency to crash. While it is recommended to restore to stock and update to lollipop, some users (myself included) would rather flash a bootstack. So here are mine that have been sitting on GitHub since May.

NOTICE: The KitKat bootloader will only work with bump, while the Jellybean bootloader will work with both Bump and Loki.

D800:
5.0.2 Bootstack with KitKat (Bump) bootloader: https://github.com/lg-devs/bootstacks/raw/master/d800/lp/bootstack-d800-LP_30d-Bump-signed.zip
5.0.2 Bootstack with Jellybean (Loki) bootloader: https://github.com/lg-devs/bootstacks/raw/master/d800/lp/bootstack-d800-LP_30d-loki-signed.zip

D801:
5.0.2 Bootstack with KitKat (Bump) bootloader: https://github.com/lg-devs/bootstacks/raw/master/d801/lp/bootstack-d801-LP_30b-bump-signed.zip
5.0.2 Bootstack with Jellybean (Loki) bootloader: https://github.com/lg-devs/bootstacks/raw/master/d801/lp/bootstack-d801-LP_30b-loki-signed.zip

D802:
5.0.2 Bootstack with KitKat (Bump) bootloader: https://github.com/lg-devs/bootstacks/raw/master/d802/lp/bootstack-d802-LP_30d-Bump-signed.zip
5.0.2 Bootstack with Jellybean (Loki) bootloader: https://github.com/lg-devs/bootstacks/raw/master/d802/lp/bootstack-d802-LP_30d-loki-signed.zip

LS980:
5.0.2 Bootstack with KitKat (Bump) bootloader: https://github.com/lg-devs/bootstacks/raw/master/ls980/lp/bootstack-ls980-LP_ZVG-Bump-signed.zip
5.0.2 Bootstack with Jellybean (Loki) bootloader: https://github.com/lg-devs/bootstacks/raw/master/ls980/lp/bootstack-ls980-LP_ZVG-loki-signed.zip

VS980:
5.0.2 Bootstack with KitKat (Bump) bootloader: https://github.com/lg-devs/bootstacks/raw/master/vs980/lp/bootstack-vs980-LP_39a-Bump-signed.zip
5.0.2 Bootstack with Jellybean (Loki) bootloader: https://github.com/lg-devs/bootstacks/raw/master/vs980/lp/bootstack-vs980-LP_39a-loki-signed.zip

You'll notice that the D803 is missing. When the 5.0.x OTA is released, I'll package one for it.

Enjoy.

Hey, according to lg Korea (responsible for manufacturing the d803 and responsible for lollipop ota) the d803 won't be getting lollipop, same answer from lg Canada. Is the d803 good on 4.4.2 boot loader? Thanks

Yeah, I built in a few fallbacks for the d803

Not officially supported by CM, but when it is, I'll post some for it as well.

You rock. Thanks for all you and the other LG Devs have done for carrying our phones on!
No prob ;)

Quick question, I have a D801, I flashed I believe it was drgravy's Bumped LP bootstack, he has the same file title, but the sha1 does not match. Does your file have updates or should I stick with what I have? :)

They were the same a few hours ago, until I updated mine. I added asserts so you can't flash another variants bootstack on your device. For example, the d802 one will ONLY flash on the d802, it'll error out on the other variants. Just an added layer of security so no one tries something stupid ;)

Nice thanks!

Drgravy did not have a KK bootloader in his bootstacks.

Any idea what the difference is with the bootstacks from Daniel Stuart?

I had mine first, he just repackaged them. Which I don't particularly care about since these images aren't my property in the first place, they're LG's.

@Rashed97 - thanks for your work on the d803. Creating a bootstack inspite of no official release by LG Canada, was pure genius!
Who is the official maintainer for the D803 tree on CM ?

Also, earlier I *think* I saw that you used a patched D800 bootloader for the D803. I am running a CM12.1 ROM built by zr239 based on that tree with full CAF for D803. I have everything working including skype, etc.

if we install the new ROMs from www.cmxlog.com/12.1/d803, will that be a better or a worse experience ?

It'll be the same since he was building his builds from my sources, which are now the official CM sources

When flashing D802 LP Bump bootstack script says

KK Bootloader flashing...

What about D805/6?
I think they share same stacks and bootloader as d802 the difference is the modem/baseband
Problem is they don't have official LP yet.
