    How do I go about getting the Boost Mobile LG Volt 2 stock ROM or whatever it's called? Also I need to be able to do it on a Mac if possible.

    Good question. I've been waiting for someone to come out with a custom recovery, and a stock rom, and even a custom rom built off the stock rom for this LG Volt 2. Does not look like it's going to happen. I've been all over the web for months, it just seems it's just not that popular for anyone to mess around with it, plus, because of the phone itself, from what I was told and what I have found out, the bootloader cannot be unlocked in order for all those things mentioned above to happen anyway.

    Since I cant have those things above, I managed to really make this phone pretty good with what it has, mostly using the tool called: Apps2SD PRO: All in One Tool (by Vicky Bonick). That allowed me to do a lot with the phone, and I finnally just got the phone all hooked up and running great.

    But just yesterday I dropped a flashlight on top of the phone, now my LG Volt 2 has a super-cracked-shattered glass screen. I'm so pissed off. So @#$% it. I give up. I'm gonna just buy a newer phone, definitely not an LG, since it seems due to the bootloader thingy, nobody seems to mess with them.

    I guess I will just go back to the old samsung galaxy's again. Replacing the screen will just take time, leave me without a phone, which aint an option, and it will cost, well, i dont even know.

    At least now I can mess around with this phone all I want and not care about if i totally screw it up or not. Because if I do, lol, without a custom recovery and stock rom, I cant fix it.

    Screw LG.

    lol, later.

    WHO HAS ROOT?! If someone DOES have Root, then plz use OnlineNandroid.apk from play store and make a CWM/TWRP backup and upload somewhere then provide a link. Also use Flashify.apk or Rashr.apk to backup the stock Kernel (boot.img) & stock recovery.img then upload those as well. Do those and I'll bust out the stock ROMs within a day or two so someone else can just do the custom recovery unless I get my new PC setup soon enough to give it a go. I'm only promising the stock ROMs tho, FYI.

    Hi KingLee92
    I was able to install the Root and the phone started. I want to change the program settings DFS. Ports detects (high picture) and not connected. diag and debug mode is enabled. It managed to change the prl, but the network can not find the phone. Phone works only on ruim card? or you can also be set up without her?

    TechnologX, I dont know how to do that stuff you mentioned above, plus my phone, like I said, wont boot up. So I cannot do shit with it unless there is a way to access the internals via adb etc. Which I dont know how to do it either. Someone would have to walk me thru it.

    I have all the needed stuff installed, Android Studio/SDK etc., but no proper drivers for the LG Volt 2.
    Im also on XP Pro. ... , still.

    I almost went out an hour ago and bought an LG G Stylo from Best buy for $99.99, on sale, and it has Marshmallow 6.0, but I just read that if you try and ROOT the LG G Stylo with 6.0, bam!!! - Bricked.

    Now I'm scared.

    I would have just bought another new Volt 2
    but they dont have them inthe store.

    I dont wanna wait, id rather just buy it in store.

    I dont know what I'm gonna do now.
    Im so confused lol

    Anyone know anything or have
    opinions on the LG G Stylo ? - compared to the VOLT 2 ???

    thanks guys.

    It's alright and thank you for the link but I hate the damn phone along with Boost Mobile. As soon as I get the money I'm going back to Straight Talk.

    Don't look like it man. I gave up on this phone a little while ago.
    I really liked this phone too. I got it rooted, but as far as any
    custom recoveries or roms, it's beat. Then I broke my screen.
    Then I bricked it anyway.

    Lesson learned: before buying a new phone go onto these forums and make sure it's hackable.

    sorry man. good luck.

    Iv rooted using the stylos root method. Is there no recovery for the device? Stylos recovery maybe? I could care less for roms as long as theres a recovery i can edit my own rom! :)
