@Joe199799 Did you see this? @ChazzMatt

I did yes, I should say I keep up with this stuff and know a decent amount about the front end of Android but I'm f****ing clueless about the backend, all the information I've told people is just paraphrasing from other threads on here

@Joe199799 Did you see this? @ChazzMatt Also @culot did you already try to install this and if so what was the result? Also, was not able to get this extracted/decompiled as well.

This was just pulled from LG Bridge as it updated my device.



No, I was not able to extract contents of the dz file. Someone could try to add the header info to that LG kdz python program on github maybe? A while back that used to be simple to accomplish.

Been lurking and leeching since my first android, trying to contribute on this G7, just upgraded to G710TM10N on this sim-locked G7, if I can provide anything to help anywhere. I can try to pull the same files if redundancy helps

Thank you sir, see if you can try to pull the recovery.img. The firmware didnt seem to include one. I may try and download an older firmware and see if i can recover it from there instead. If everyone can help with this search, it could prove important.

Recovery is included in boot_a, boot_b in system A/B phones which the LG G7 has. It is included there so phone can update without needing a reboot.
While you are correct that recovery is in boot, it is not needed for the A/B updates. The only rational reason they stuck recovery in boot is to make our lives difficult. Also, not all A/B phones ditched the recovery partition, just the majority of phones with Qualcomm processors that use their reference abl.

FYI - the much easier way will be to incorporate TWRP into laf ... or just forgo download mode completely, and use the laf partition.

Lastly, now that I can decompile abl -- stay tuned for ablsploit (to be used in conjunction with lafsploit). I am not saying with certainty that it is possible yet, but I am feeling confident.

Oh, one last thing for real this time -- don't think about cross flashing ANY model G7. I have downloaded all available KDZs for each model, and LG got smart and they all have different RSA certs.

I kept hitting security key issues, possibly due to my limited usage of adb and fastboot. My phone had already updated so I don't see the download anywhere, I guess to the A/B partition setup.

and good luck to you, runningnak3d
