    ......you shouldn't factory reset (if you had already turned on debugging mode, you literally turned it off by doing this) and if you're not on v10j OS then don't flash the v10j TWRP flash the one before it

    @6th_Hokage Do you think there might be a way to coax/fib our way into getting a kdz file from LG or Boost Mobile's Tech Support?

    I just bricked my Boost Stylo running 6.0 while trying to install busybox and superuser. I'm stuck with a bootloop showing a "Secure boot error 1003 modified" message. Sadly I tried the useless "factory reset" so now I can't get in with ADB.

    Any ideas? :spitoutdroid:

    Currently trying that 5.11 unbrick guide... can't hurt at this point.

    I did the same thing. I had a perma-root from Kingroot after pushing the latest su to /system/bin/su and chmod 04775 the /sysetm dir. It would reboot and root would stick again and again. I messed up when I installed SuperSU and it wanted to update the binaries and when I tried to remove Kingroot for the switch it rebooted and I got the Secure boot error. I've only had mine for five days so I'm just swapping it out. They're coming Monday/Tuesday to pick it up but post up if you find a solution (it's gonna take a week to get a new one).

    I realized that the above guide is just the system.img from 5.11 and it wouldn't help me at all, so that guide won't help... lol.

    About how much did it cost to ship?

    Which supersu did you use and how did you go about installing it?
    I copied my boot.img after I temp rooted with kingroot and I can put it up for you to re-flash, but you'd have to get the command and instructions from someone else as I don't know it. Also someone else on xda flashed an update.zip from http://forum.xda-developers.com/lg-g-stylo/how-to/untouched-6-0-1-boost-sprint-t3285764
    on top of a bricked boost stylo and it worked. They didn't have a secure boot error, but it is useful info for some bricks.
    Like I said, if you can find the dd commands and methods maybe you could put my boot.img file on your sd card and flash it off of download mode, dunno, lemme kno, and I would like to know how you attempted installing and what version of supersu you were using, thx

    you're home free, I'm using a virginmobile stylo, so we don't have unlocked bootloader. What I'm tryin to find out is if they used the supersu that TMacgnolia put on the root for tmobile/metropcs stylos, because I'm trying to root ours and don't want to brick like those two posters before my last one, thanks for the reply tho

    Everything was free. I got it through Walmart and I was within the 14 day window. I've seen some people posting about how they sent their's to LG and it was free aswell.

    I rooted with Kingroot. Installed adb insecure and set it (not sure if this actually mattered). Then downloaded the lastest SuperSU.zip (2.46). Extracted the arm64 su file and pushed it to SD. Opened adb shell, switched to root, cp'ed the file to /system/bin/. And at some point I chmod'ed /system to 04755. I think it was after I cp'ed su.

    Then I tried to install SuperSU.apk and it wanted to update binaries and I wasn't paying attention and it failed to update them (which I didn't even think about) and then I gave it the go-ahead to remove Kingroot and after that I rebooted and it locked up with Secure Boot error.

    I tried to re-write /system with a system.img using dd. Nope. Tried to flash the zv7 update.zip. Got Status 7. When I try to use LG Root tool all I get is, "Hi, I'm LAF. Nice to meet you" (or whatever). Recovery says frst_status 6 now.

    O.K . I've been watching the supersu stuff and the only one I've seen that has made clear reference to MM was the one here on the tmobile MM root thread. Anyway, Dominic had the secure boot error and said he straightened it out, and even said the dd commands on a youtube video, but he didn't give specific instructions, just made a comment about failing until he had the right syntax. If you want the boot.img I have it, and here is the youtube, but you may just want a fresh phone. I got mine back from a brick two days ago, that's why I'm trying to get more info while experimenting. Dom's youtube-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UrYQa4vUJqY

    By the way Dom had a secure boot error and had an earlier youtube showing it. This above youtube isn't overly informative, but he does give a general idea of the dd command to re-flash boot.img

    I'm actually going to try this with the zv7 boot.img from him annndddd I'll report back. Given my experience with trying to write system.img however, I'm not overly confident.

    Nope, I just get "Hello, I'm LAF. Nice to meet you #" Still have the Secure Boot error.

    Also, that was pre-MM update which is when I'm assuming they probably made a change.
