Below is stock firmware(.tot) for V510...

HERE for V510 stock .tot, LG Flash .dll and individual partitions

LG Flash directions etc can be found here - http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2448960
Just apply same steps but with G Pad tot/dll instead.

Below are some conversion ideas... only try them at your own risk!!! They may result in a hard brick.

So which brave soul will try converting their current non-GPE G Pad into a GPE?

If LG hasn't added any tricks... flashing the stock V510 .tot file into the device should work. I've also included just the individual partitions for the boot chain... modem.. etc. Those might be able to be flashed to the V500 instead of running the entire tot if you only want an unlocked bootloader but nothing else. Loki would no longer be required at that point. If flashing just the bootchain.. I would flash aboot, sbl1, sbl2, sbl3 at minimum.

To flash the .tot.. LG Flash 1.8 is required. To flash the partitions... you'd use dd commands via adb shell.
example:
adb shell
dd if=/sdcard/aboot.img of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/aboot

probably won't work given that secure boot is on, once it's on it can't be disabled at least on the on the snapdragon 600+, you'll probably just hard brick it

What is the offsets for LGV510AT-00-V10d-NA-XX-NOV-15-2013-KRT16O.L004-USER-16G.tot?

I want to extract system.img, but it's not in the OP link, I could do it myself if I knew the offsets of where it begins/ends.

    I got GPE ROM booted on V500 but I am stuck at WiFi setup screen. Debugging and should have this sucker running soon.

    So..
    After some research and some fruitful thinking i came to the conclusion that we need to elaborate more deeply than a discussion thread.
    To achieve this i took the opportunity to start an organization on gihub called Gpad2Gpe so we can work together as a community.
    Any members interested can post here or pm me so i/we can add them as team members or collaborators.
    Link:
    https://github.com/Gpad2Gpe
    My initial thoughts are.
    1.Reverse all new commits from Ricardo that forks us away from our gpe brother.
    2.Add in Gpe blobs replacing ours
    3a.Patch kernel to be up2date with I9505 and/or HTC One(they are the almost the same anyway)
    3b.Use Gpe kernel and fix it .
    Edit:
    Just pushed the Gpe kernel :)

    Laughed so hard I choked on lunch and some McRib came out of my nose...

    Are the McRibs back? That was my goto food back in the Droid 2 days :D

    had to be the store or he wouldn't have it yet. My guess best buy

    I actually purchased a new one. The Angel sitting on my shoulder beat out the devil sitting on the other side and he made me purchase a new one instead of returning something that I actually broke. Maybe I'll get it back some way, maybe I will figure out the GPE ROM issues and will get it back in donations or something...
