    Hard to believe that it cannot be done. Anybody? Thanks

    What do you actually need to flash a ROM on an LG Stylo? What's the procedure? If it requires some proprietary device specific tools and drivers that's Windows only, which quite a few phones do, it might be very difficult or impossible to do in Linux. If it's just a question of copying a ROM image zip to a micro-SD, and flashing via the recovery, doing that in Linux should be no problem. Is it a custom ROM or an LG stock ROM?

    This guy is using something called LG Flash Tool, which is on Windows, and I presume a Linux version doesn't exist.

    The procedure is described here: https://androidforums.com/threads/newest-metropcs-tmobile-6-0-kdz-firmware.1058637/ . It does require windows only tools.

    It's an LG stock ROM. I was considering doing it the following way on GNU/Linux:
    1. Unpack kdz file
    2. Concatenate partition files from parts
    3. Flash partitions using fastboot

    I've never done it though so I'm looking if there's a better way and/or more detailed instructions. Thanks
