LG-VS996 20D ROM​
Hello everyone

Users have requested that i can make a flashable Zip for the VS996. Hope it will be supported as with my other roms.

Rom ist Untested. Use it at your own risk! When somebody Tell me it Works then I will edit it

This Rom is 100% Stock. TWRP 3.2.1-0 must first be installed as with Nougat Roms. Then you can install this Rom and have Oreo with working TWRP.

This zip is created from the original KDZ. I changed the Boot.img, so you do not have to reinstall TWRP. . . ;)

I had made this for users who can not get ota's because they have Custom Recovery / Root installed

Sorry for my bad english i'm out of practice :p

Features​
*Stock build made from official KDZ
*Stock Build.prop
*Unrooted
*Boot.img modified to keep TWRP
*Remove dm-verity
*Remove forceencrypt​
Installation​
What you need​
*Unlocked Bootloader [How to do]
*Working TWRP installed [Link to unofficial TWRP]
*When you need Root, Latest Magisk [Download]
*VS99620D(TWRP).zip [Download]



How to install​
When you are on Nougat: Reboot to recovery using button combo or reboot app (need root)
flash this TWRP.img Download reboot and Backup Dalvik,ART, Cache, System & Data (include not your internal memory) and Boot
in to your external sd or copy the backup from internal sd to your PC!
From Oreo: Install TWRP with this guide but with this img
For clean install: Wipe Dalvik/ART, Cache, System and Data (Recommend)
You can also keep your data by dirty flashing the zip. *Not tested!!!*
Flash VS99620D(TWRP).zip
then Magisk zip when you need root
Reboot System


At the first time you boot to system, it can be TWRP says No OS installed. You can ignore it.
If TWRP asks if you want to install SU, hit no



Here you can find my other [Downloads.] There are IMG´s, KDZ´z and more!

Downloaded and installed. Got a Verizon update notification and switched back to DotOS. I flashed everything that needed to be flashed and still got the Verizon update notification.

Can I flash this in TWRP to a "US998" (frankensteined from LS998 hardware), or do i need to frankenstein to VS996 first? I'm on Verizon and want working WiFi calling. All of the links i've read for WiFi calling have been dead ends.

Because there is a newer update. You dont have to install it. You could also just freeze the OTA app with titanium, and no more notification.

Just dirty flashed everything is working fine. Noticed Verizon must have removed OEM bootloader unlock in developer options. Root and TWRP are fully functional. I get an app closure called quality data log service but that must be a Verizon thing also no big deal.:good:

It is a Verizon thing. You can freeze it using titanium, or just delete the app. Problem solved.

You don't have to install the update. Just freeze in Titanium. It's "stock" Verizon except for custom recovery, so there will be some customization you have to do yourself.

Yes, and you also do not get the bootloader unlock warning --even though the bootloader is still unlocked. :p

I set aside time today to port my converted LS998 from US998 to VS996. Everything went smoothly. Since I had the time, I dirty flashed first to see how/if it would work. I figured if it didn't go well, I would just do a clean install, but so far (4 hrs), I haven't yet seen had any noticeable problems. I froze the FOTA app, which I'm hoping is the correct one to prevent future Verizon updates.

From what I can tell, the VS996 ROM added the following apps:
Android Wear
Caller Name ID
Cloud
Hellp
Hum
Mobile Hotspot
NFL Mobile
Security and Privacy
Slacker Radio
ThinkFree Viewer
Email
Messaging
Voicemail

The items that went missing:
lg mobile (Switch?) ... don't know what the full app name is
Smart Clean(ing?) ... again, missing the full name
Smart World

Confirmed WiFi Calling works.

What he said!
Had to go into Settings-->Advanced Calling to turn it on, but I can confirm that WiFi Calling shows up when making a call while connected to my home router. Visual voicemail is working too. Those are the 2 main reasons for me wanting to switch from US to VS.

Additionally, as has been mentioned in other threads, my phone now finds and gets the Verizon signal more quickly on this rom than the US998 one. Whereas I used to have to wait for the phone to fully boot to desktop and (seemingly having to wait for most) background processes to finish, I now get full signal immediately upon hitting the desktop.

I have no warnings to offer.
Nandroid just in case.
I wiped dalvik cache before flashing.
I flashed VS996 zip.
I wiped dalvik cache again.
I forgot to flash magisk, so I had to adb reboot, wiped dalvik, flashed magisk, wiped dalvik and that was it. I could just be lucky, but everything's went smoothly for me.

---------- Post added at 08:41 PM ---------- Previous post was at 08:39 PM ----------

Yes, lost of service and wifi w/ Magisk Beta install. Seemed to work fine otherwise, until beta install. Then reboots to have loss of service and disabled wifi. Restored state previous to Magisk beta install corrected this.
I installed latest stable 16 as stated in OP and everything seems fine on my end.

    I clean flash every different Rom. Going from 998 to 996 or vice versa, clean flash. Going from dotos to RR or to aex or whatever, I clean flash. That's the way I was taught to avoid any unexpected problems.

    The first app I install from the play store is titanium backup pro. I then restore all my other apps (about 30 or so) from there.

    My phone is originally a Verizon vs996.
    4
    And out of curiosity if I would have taken the OTA does anything with recovery happen? Or, would it have just failed?

    1) Full image firmware is always better than partial image OTA. Much safer since your are installing the entire firmware. Even if you're not bootloader unlocked and have no desire to do so.

    2) With TWRP custom recovery, an OTA will (hopefully) never install. At best, it would wipe out TWRP to replace with stock recovery and you would also lose root. At worst, if it halfway installed, it could brick your phone.

    Good news is it should fail to install. But you should freeze all the OTA stuff with Titanium Backup.

    Over in the Droid Turbo forum we warned people to NEVER take OTA updates. Never. Even those not rooted who didn't want to root. To wait for the full image to be released. Much safer. We saw bricks with bad OTA updates. So, after three years over there it's strange over here to see people trying to install OTAs. It's like Bizarro world.

    Per usual ChazzMatt comes through with the knowledge. Thanks! I've been lurking since my Droid Turbo days and you were clutch then too.

    I'll take thanks for passing on the information, but be sure to thank @PerCompLLC! ;). It's his information I was quoting. He's been very helpful.
