Thanks for coming back. I managed to downgrade the code to 10d and (I think) load 10h LAF. The part I do not seem to be able to bypass is Step 2 in the instructions, i.e., https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/root-h932-lafploit-1-5-up-to-v20a.3842550/#post-77672203
(lafsploit). I follow the instructions, load twrp.img into the recovery partition, and then do the following
- Power off your phone
- Hold vol down + power.
- When the LG logo appears, immediately release power (and ONLY power) and then immediately hold power again until you get the the factory reset screen.
You never let go of vol down until the factory reset screen appears. Once it appears, you can release both buttons.
- Choose yes twice by using the vol down key and power to select, this allegedly factory resets the phone.
Per instructions, the phone should boot into TWRP recovery, but all I get is stock loader with TMobile logo, and no sign of TWRP. Perhaps I am using a wrong version, but I downloaded what was linked in the thread, i.e., https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=890129502657598561
Any help would be really appreciated. I spent already probably close to 3 days trying different TWRP versions, combinations, did the whole LAF load to 10h again, nothing, no way to move past that. I clearly am missing something, just not clear what.
Just to add, this is what I get when I complete factory reset and the phone refuses to boot
