    I really want to do some customizing to the stock ROM but the boost variant doesn't have a custom recovery yet so... i don't wanna risk it. so does anyone have an image to restore the stock ROM via lg flash tool?

    #EDIT#
    would it even be possible to restore since the boot loader is supposedly locked on the boost variant?

    if you achieve Root, then you can bypass the locked bootloader (usually) with using Flashify.apk from play store to backup stock boot.img/recovery and flash custom boot/recovery..

    Flashify can backup & restore stock boots and recoveries.. Pretty awesome, actually. That's how I got SuperR the stock img & recovery for the Warp Sync, which had a locked bootloader that ADB wouldn't touch either.
