Follow guides with this tool easy quick
Once bootloader unlock its easy to install twrp recovery
I will this work with boost?
@Izzxy boost has no recovery.img that I know of, so unfortunately nonit will not work with the boost variant, unless someone else can chime in
I believe I read somewhere that the TWRP recovery is compatible..??
it use to be, unless marshmallow allows the boost variant to use OEM unlock
Nothing for boost, especially on Marshmallow. Not even root yet, much less custom recovery.
KingRoot, if you dare.
From what I saw before my brick is that kingroot gives you limited root so you don't replace it. You don't have full ADB root access. Therefore you can't use kingroot to load in a recovery and flash a ROM.
I guess I'd be willing to try, I can always ship it back to LG. It took less then a week to repair. They replaced the whole flash memory chip according to the paper sent along with the phone.
Thanks for sharing
Is this also for the T-Mobile variant? And after running this tool do you use kingroot to root the device? Thank you!
It installs SuperSu, so you do not need kingroot after this.
It should work for tmobile and metro. Not Boost.
A complete one click bootloader unlock, root, and TWRP? Wow, that's awesome! If someone on the T-Mobile variant running 6.0 marshmallow can verify it does work it would be greatly appreciated. Still pretty new to this and don't know if I could recover from a brick. Thank you!
Sorry for stupid question but does this root 6.0 I tried using it and even with instructions was lost in the sauce
Yes this what I use onm Tmobile. Foolsow guide have superuser on sd card
Are there any specific instructions to use this or do I need to just run the All in One batch file as admin? Will this result in a line in the splash screen saying the bootloader is unlocked?
The tutorial is in the tool. Just like the proof is in the pudding. Also noticed that helped my computer recongnize my phone was installing PDA.NET app on your pc. What it does is install the adb driver for your phone.Yes it will leave your Bootloader saying that its unlocked
It's funny that the person who made the batch script threw in a little joke to scare people.
Yeah and what got me i read about that joke somewheres recently. I used the tool and it had me fooled for a second then i remembered wait joke haha. But yeah at first i was reluctant about using the update zip and recovery in the file so i switched them out with our stylo custom recovery and the 2.65 su update.zip just to be on the safe side
So after step one ( recovery) i make my device do what ? sorry im still new.
When using this tool it just reboots to the LG screen with this "Welcome to Fastboot mode for bootloader unlock:"
I really don't know if this is what it is supposed to boot to or what but it is just staying on this screen doing nothing.
Any one able to help me with this?
This was no joke. I had supersu on my sd card. Followed the instructions. My phone booted to Twrp. When i got to the point where it said "Install zip from sideload" there was no option to do so. So in twrp i flashed the supersu zip from my sd card. Hit the button on my key board and got a message saying" youre device is now hard bricked. Luckily i still had lg flash tool so i was able to downgrade back to tmo lollipop( im a metro user) root, install twrp, use drakens stock restore zips, go back to metro lollipop and upgrade to metro mm. If this program isnt a joke, what am I doing wrong? My device never hard bricked btw, just got stuck on the metro boot screen. And twrp didnt stick. Any help would be greatly appreciated, but im at a total loss with the instructions put in the tool when it says to install zip adb sideload. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help. Also do i sideload just update.zip and then recovery? Or can i place update.zip on my ext sdcard and flash it through twrp then use flashify to reinstall twrp? @jmitchell1979 @NeoZiggy @eversleyd , @Blu8 if you guys could lend me a hand id highly appreciate it. Thanks again.
i believe my issue may have been i was trying to install the wrong supersu, and recovery. im back on stock metro MM, but the phone keeps freezing still at the boot logo. It also appears my boot loader is no longer unlocked. Im at a total loss. Ok, so after threatening my phone with fire, a hammer, and chunking it, I pulled the battery again, replaced it, but this time held volume down, power, released power and hit it again. A white menu came up asking if i wanted to factory reset and wipe all user and carrier data. I hit yes, my phone showed andy doing his thing and almost immediately rebooted. The bootloader stated it was unlocked( jumping for joy) and started up correctly. I am currently on stock metro MM, no root no twrp, and am worried to even restart the thing. Tomorrow, ill try again, this time with the proper update.zip and recovery file stored on my ext sd. Once i get into Twrp, i am going to attempt to flash the update.zip through twrp, restart my phone and hope all goes well. Until then, Goodnight my amazing family of geniuses.
I Added Chainfires most recent SuperSU-v2.76 to the Mod which is the file you see in there named update.zip and the recovery.img is the twrp-188.8.131.52-10j from the Metro Stylo Lollipop Rom MS63110j which works with the Marshmallow update MS63120b.
The tutorial in the Mod is pretty much explanatory step by step if your Pc isnt recognizing your phone in adb mode you need 2 dl the latest Lg mobile driver and download the PDA.Net.exe windows app and it will install the adb and other drivers that will help your phone and PC Communicate.
My phone is recognized by my pc, and reboots to TWRP. The issue im having is sideloading the update.zip and recovery.img. I was wondering if instead of sideloading can I just flash the 2 from my ext. Sd once in TWRP? My pc definitely recognizes my phone, as ive had to go into download mode to downgrade numerous times due to soft bricks. The only issue I am having is I cant find anywhere to install zip adb sideload. Thats why I was wondering if once my phone boots into twrp, can I just flash the update.zip, reboot, and install twrp via flashify? Thanks so much @jmitchell1979 for the quick reply.
You want to flash the update zip in twrp but you do not flash a .img file in twrp download flashify on the market its free after you flash the update.zip your phones os should be rooted as well and when you reboot do not i repeat do not hit let twrp install superuser ignore it skip it it will ask you that when you go to reboot your phone. After phone is booted into the os get on market and dl flashify
Thanks so much @jmitchell1979 . ill get back to you guys with my results.
