Exactly. Optimus UI doesn't look good on low pixel density screens, CM however looks good even on a 3.5inch screen!
Not to mention the features we can get. I'm dying for AOKP to be seen on mine, or maybe even an unofficial Dirty Unicorn build.

Yeah! I had cm10 on my motion and I loved it owo

Does anyone have a way to bypass metropcs's WiFi Tether block? I like updating my Xbox or.use it on my computer but it is blocked by MetroPcS.

Anyone know a way around this?

With root you can read and write the partitions on the emmc. /dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name on the L70 has conveniently named links to block device files. dd is a copy command that's meant to write raw images to and from disks.

Code:
/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name # ls -l

Does this mean that there is hope for TWRP and other custom recoveries for the LG Optimus L70?

Don't get your hopes up, but it might be possible. AndroidAddict has been looking into partitions on the MS323 and so far it has been quite unsatisfying.

The partitions on the devices differ, which makes it a bit harder, but not impossible. However, the fact that Pokey9000 could get us a list of /dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1 on the MS323 is definitely helpful. (Assuming those came from the MS323 and not another similar LG device.)

I need to go to #UPP and chat with the folks there and get this worked out. If the D415 can write to /dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1, we should be able to as well. Of course, writing to the partitions doesn't mean that we'll have a custom usable recovery. Someone still has to develop one and make it work with our device.

Yes, from my MS323. All you need is root and a terminal / adb shell.

The bigger problem, and what the aboot hacks solved for D410/405, is the signature check the bootloader is likely doing on recovery and the kernel. Even if you could write a valid recovery, the bootloader might not load it without the correct signature. The PKCS#1 exploit, if it hasn't been fixed in this bootloader, is one possible workaround.

Care to link me to how they did it?

Download lg firmware update tool , install the drivers on your computer.
Run the firmware update tool.
Shut down your phone.
Connect the usb cable to your phone and keep the volume up button pressed. Now connect the usb cable to your computer.
Phone will start in download mode and will be detected by the firmware update tool. Flash the firmware.

    [CWMR][MS323] CWM 6.0.5.0 For LG L70

    This recovery is for the LG L70 (MS323). It has been tested and works 100%.

    This wouldn't be possible without junkie2100 and PlayfulGod, be sure to thank them also ;)

    and last but not least, koush.

    DISCLAIMER: I am not responsible for anything that can happen to your device when using this. Your phone = Your responsibility. Your booloader MUST be unlocked to use this.

    NOTE: I am still waiting on a firmware B tester to test the key combo to boot to recovery. For all you firmware B users, be careful not to brick your device because the key combo has not been confirmed working for y'all yet :)

    The Goods

    Instructions:

    Fastboot users

    Download the recovery.img to your computer and open up terminal or command prompt and cd to the directory where the recovery.img is.

    Example:
    Windows
    Code:
    cd Downloads
    Linux
    Code:
    cd ~/Downloads

    Now that you are in the recovery.img's directory, boot into fastboot mode by powering off the device, from power off, plug in your usb, power on the device, as soon as it starts to boot, release the power button and hold volume up until in fastboot mode.

    Now in terminal or command prompt, type:
    Code:
    fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
    Reboot
    Code:
    fastboot reboot
    Once booted, go download this awesome app to make rebooting to recovery easy, HERE

    People who restored the laf partition, follow these steps:

    Place the recovery.img in the root of your internal sd card.

    Open up command prompt or terminal and type:
    Code:
    adb shell
    Code:
    su

    Now it is time to overwrite your stock recovery with cwm, type:
    Code:
    dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/recovery

    That's it, download this awesome app to reboot to recovery HERE

    Keep in mind, when rebooting from recovery, it will ask you to do 2 things, select no for the first option and select yes for fix root or you will lose your root. To boot to recovery you would use the same key that is used to factory reset, from power off, you boot and press volume down

    That's it for the recovery, hope everyone enjoys it :) If you would like to donate, you can click the little donate picture in my signature and send me some money for an energy drink :p

    [UNLOCK][MS323] LG L70 Bootloader Unlock

    This is the method I used to unlock the bootloader of the LG L70 on MetroPCS. This has worked for me and will work for you if you follow the instructions and read this guide :)

    DISCLAIMER: I am not responsible for anything that may happen when unlocking your bootloader. Your device = Your responsibility.

    Credits: junkie2100, PlayfulGod, LoneStar, Cheetopocalypse, bobdamnit, BlastGT1, jonhaney, daddyof3_101, biggiephil and lady vengeance (sorry if I forgot someone).

    What you need:

    Windows users, you need fastboot and adb installed. All of which is included in the zip for part 1. Linux users, same for you, I have included the adb and fastboot binary but I had a problem with the adb not working in the package, might be something I edited in the shell script so install adb in your bin directory (I can help if needed).

    NOTE: Must have busybox installed on your device, have USB debugging enabled, and the phone plugged in and set as charge only.

    Part 1:

    Windows Users

    1. Download the bootloader.zip and extract it to your Desktop.
    Mirror link: HERE


    2. Open the bootloader folder and press shift + right click, select "Open Command Window here".

    3. In command prompt, type:
    Code:
    laf_script.bat
    (Hit enter and the first step will start)

    Be sure to pay attention to the command window to make sure you are not having any problems. That is it for part 1, go to part 2 :)[/align]

    Linux Users

    1. Download the bootloader.zip and extract it to your Desktop
    Mirror link: HERE


    2. Open terminal with ctrl + alt + t and cd to the folders directory.
    Code:
    cd ~/Desktop/bootloader_unlock_part1

    3. In the folder, right click the laf_script_linux.sh file, go to properties, and allow the file to execute as program.

    4. Now in terminal, type:
    Code:
    ./laf_script_linux.sh

    Done with part 1, pay attention to the terminal and be sure everything is working correctly.[/align]

    Windows and Linux users, if you had everything setup correctly before running this, you should have a backup of the laf.img in the directory you ran the script from. If you have checked your script directory and your adb directory located on the C drive for windows (If you didn't use the ones I included) and you still don't have a backup of the laf partition, hastebin the output of terminal or command prompt and link me to it.

    Part 2:

    Windows and Linux Users

    1. Power off your device

    2. With the device powered off, plug in your usb to your computer, power on and hold volume up until in fastboot mode. If your phone boots to download mode then something didn't work right, be sure you followed every instruction in part 1.

    3. Open Command prompt or terminal and cd to the same directory as your scripts, once there, type:
    Code:
    fastboot devices
    (Hit enter)
    Be sure that your device is listed, it should be random numbers.
    Code:
    fastboot oem unlock

    4. Verify that your bootloader is indeed unlocked:
    Code:
    fastboot oem device-info

    That is it, you are now unlocked ;) Keep in mind that download mode is now gone, so if your brick then fastboot is your only option. If you would like to restore download mode as soon as you unlock your device, you can do this:

    cd to the directory where your backup of the laf partition is
    Code:
    cd ~/Desktop/bootloader_unlock_part1

    Push the img to your sdcard
    Code:
    adb push laf.img /sdcard/

    Use adb shell & su
    Code:
    adb shell
    Code:
    su

    Hi all,
    Please hit thanks to below post, so that I can build a strong case to get us a forum: we have so much redundant information here, so its a high time we should have our own forum.

    Hello everyone,

    Thread cleaned to get it back on track.
    This is just a general reminder to all. No one is to ask for ETAs here or anywhere else on this site. No one is entitled to anything. These roms and/or mods take time to do and at times it's a struggle to find enough time to do them for everyone. Please keep in mind, that people have personal lives that come first before anything else that is going on on this website.
    Please respect that and respect each other.

    Regards...
