LG V60 LMV600EA rooted

When I adb reboot fastboot and then fastboot flash boot boot_V600EA10o_00_1118_magisk.img I get the following error:

sending 'boot' (98304 KB)...
OKAY [ 2.259s]
writing 'boot'...
FAILED (remote: Cannot flash this partition in unlocked state)

Solved (sort of). I needed to give it the specific boot partition to write to for the error to go away eg:

fastboot flash boot_a boot_V600EA10o_00_1118_magisk.img

I now have a new issue. When I flash the boot_V600EA10o_00_1118_magisk.img rom from OPs post, my phone becomes terribly slow/unresponsive...and I cannot turn on WiFi or NFC and I get random reboots and crashes.

My LM-600EA is the SWC (Swiss) variant and according to THIS PAGE there are 4 different roms for the 100_00_1118 rom (based on locality... POC / NLC / SWC / VDI). I assume OPs extracted boot.img rom came from a different country version to the one my phone needs.

I followed THIS GUIDE on how to extract a boot.img from a .KDZ firmware. I was able to get the .DZ extracted file, but when I used to LG Extraction Tool to get the boot.img file, it saved a 0 byte file.

Is there any chance @olavbson (OP, or someone) can please tell us how to successfully extract the boot.img file from any given v60 rom so we can patch and flash it for our specific models?

If not, is someone with the know-how able to plase post patched boot.img roms for Android 10 and Android 11 roms so we can flash them successfully?

Cheers

for what it's worth somebody used python tools to extract a boot.img from an "LG Velvet" .kdz : https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/root-lg-velvet-lm-g900em.4171117/

Thanks pierro78, you're a legend.

After going down the rabbit hole of that thread, I ended up using the compiled .exe files from THIS POST to extract the boot image from the .dz file. It seems the current python undz.py script has some bugs/problems, and the compiled .exe file does not.

I was able to successfully extract a boot.img from the .dz file, patch it with Magisk and then flash to the phone. Everything seems to be working normally now (no slowdowns, wifi and NFC work) and I have a rooted V600EA with Magisk installed.

Thanks again for your help!!

Hey,
Hopefully you didn't disappear now that you got what you wanted, if you're still around, can you help the rest of us out by uploading the following so we can get root as well? As mentioned previously in the thread, with these files dude can check it out for us, see below.
Thanks

Hi all, I can confirm that this method worked for 20e Firmware version too! Thanks for the instructions! Happy to post patched boot.img if anybody needs it.
Hey actually we do need the following for the rest of us to get root as well.. Do you think you can do it? It's mentioned previously in this thread,

If you have magisk flashed than install termux from playstore. Open it and execute:
Code:
su
Grant superuser permission for temux and than execute:

Code:
dd if=/dev/block/sde7 of=/storage/emulated/0/abl_a.img
dd if=/dev/block/sde32 of=/storage/emulated/0/abl_b.img
dd if=/dev/block/sdb1 of=/storage/emulated/0/xbl_a.img
dd if=/dev/block/sdc1 of=/storage/emulated/0/xbl_b.img
dd if=/dev/block/sdb2 of=/storage/emulated/0/xbl_config_a.img
dd if=/dev/block/sdc2 of=/storage/emulated/0/xbl_config_b.img

All the images you will have on internal storage.

is this LM-V600EA model a dual-SIM model of V60 ?
do you know how it differs with other variants ?
sometimes, i see online that this model [V600EA] has 2 screens.

( V600EA = European, right? )

EDIT:
I think I found the answer to my question here

What's the difference between these 2 variants? LM-V600EA vs LMV600AM

I downloaded these img files. I used the mkfs command in linux to set the img files to have a mountable file system. I then mounted them. I couldn't find any data in them. I was expecting at very least a config file or something.
Here's exactly what I did:
cd /Downloads/LGV60
mkfs ext3 -F abl_a.img
sudo mount -o loop abl_a.img /home/bigjohnman/Desktop/abl_a
sudo chmod -R 777 /home/bigjohnman/Desktop/abl_a
I open that folder in a file manager (Dolphin) and I only see one folder "lost+found"
I then started fresh using unyaffs trying to extract data from the images to a folder. It states that it Detected flash layouts: NONE
I'm having trouble trying to get mkfs.yaffs2.x86, so I can't mount these images.
I want to buy this phone SO bad, but I absolutely need ROOT! What do I need to do to help?
