    Hi guys, I am sk. I still keeping this phone p875. Sorry I might be too late to join as the phone is old. Recently, I ported twrp 3.3 to our device thanks to a porting guide "porting twrp without source" and loki tool from xda. It works fine.
    PS: I am not a developer, just want to try something new. I treat this as learning

    Here is the guide: https://forum.xda-developers.com/android/general/guide-porting-twrp-source-t3843473

    Credits: Playfulgod - 2nd init recovery
    Djrbliss - loki tool

    NICE!!!!!!!!!!!

    congrats on getting twrp ported to your phone. are you going to share your accomplishment? not sure why you need twrp as i don't think there are any custom roms to flash. at least you can now make nandroid backups, in case something happens.

    Congratulations @skfl

    If you're rooted, you might find Tipatch of interest. Good luck

    I copied my reply to MrJavi from xda:
    Hi, thanks for your support! I rooted my device first by old framaroot and used adb shell to install the twrp. There is a flashing guide by djrbliss in github. Fyi, I used mktool that is made by AF member @GameTheory (GT) on Win10 Linux Subsystem. Then I used loki to patch the recovery img. The tool is also available in GT's github: https://github.com/GameTheory-/mktool

    that's up to you. but i find that xda can be very drama filled. devs over there can be a bit touchy. for me i go there for my info and leave. AF is the best community over all. we are more like family.

    You have a point! At least there are somebody post threads for this device and its variants (lucid 2-vs870 and spirit-ms870) haha. Therefore I start looking at AF here when xda doesn't hv much info & support for these devices.

    Your welcome and @GameTheory is very intelligent. His skills are impressive. Hes also a pretty cool dude. I haven't seen him around AF for a couple of months.

    And so does Playfulgod too. I discovered my twrp will not wipe my internal storage when pressed wipe data/factory reset. The internal storage is mounted as /data/media. Moreover, our device runs jb 4.1.2 out of the box so tipatch app cannot be used. Anyway, thx for sharing it!

    I see why you like Assayyedkitchen but I see its no longer in development. However, Im not familiar with LG's but I couldn't help but notice "kernel does not have support for SeLinux contents". Its not something I have come across when rooting, modding, or porting Samsungs. I certainly don't want to give advice on something I dont know, just hoping to help.
    It helps to think outside the box when modding and flash custom recoverys/CMR that were developed for a similar device show your ingenuity. Well done.
    Im facing a different, yet somewhat similar issue with a Note 4. The last update on my n910p was a fused 5, binary 4. The aboot prevents downgrading my bootloader and modem. Im still able to flash fused 4, 6.0 MM roms. However, the custom kernel provided with these roms resulted in 4g/LTE data, 3g was the best.
    One of the custom kernel was really fast, snappy and would be totally awesome if it had LTE/4g data. The other is much, much better than stock has LTE/4g data and truelly an excellent kernel but not as responsive.
    There both permissive, there both 6.0 MM and there both by the same developer. So, my challenge is to port the two together in an attempt combine the best of both into one kernel.
    Looking threw the kernels, I discover what I think is Korean in the lib/modules, (DAM !!!#) as if I wasn't already over my head :) I'll keep at it but DAM!! LoL :)

    Heres an old android app that work extremely well. I think Google PS security policies have forced many developers to remove features in their apks if the wish to remain on the play store. ApkEditor pro and RomToolBox pro are some examples.

    I'm able to open up .jar files and port right from my handset.

    Hi, the .ko file showed both chinese and korean. I think we need to decompile (or decode) the lib so that we can look at it properly.

    As I know, the .ko files are the drivers of the device
