    So i decided to do the 6.0 update on my Virgin Mobile Stylo that was rooted. I uninstalled root using the option in king root that i used to root the phone with. Now im getting a secure booting error 1014. I know you shouldnt update if you're rooted, but now i cant find a way to restore the system. I was on zv5 and tried to do the "unofficial boost lg stylo unbrick guide" on xda but no luck.

    If someone can give me a VM .tot file so i can use the lg flash tool that'd be great, assuming the lg flash tool will recover the phone back to stock.

    Whats the vm.tote file? I'm on virgin mobile. Is it something i can Pull from my phone? Have you tried restoring thru the stock recovery? Volume down plus power i think?

    .tot file is basically a kdz file for sprint prepaid phones since they use the same firmware. I seen it on some chinese website but you have to be registered somehow to download it. Not sure if you can pull it from your phone but every LG phone i had from Virgin i used the lg flash tool to completely revert back to stock when soft-bricked. I can assume same goes for this phone just like the newer ones as well.

    Tried reinstalling the update.zip and it cant write certain boot files, tried factory reset and wiped cache to try to install the update.zip again and still no luck. The update will fail and say "ApplyParsedPerms" etc "install-recovery.sh" etc "operation not permitted". Then it says error in sideload status 7.

    So VM can obtain root with king root on 5.1? Just curious, was going to get this device but I need root. Sucks no recovery or anything yet but I'm hopeful

    Did you forget to factory reset before you tried to do your update ? That is a MUST DO when ever loading a new Os or any new ROM . King Root is not too good either.
    Sorry for your heart ache.

    6th_Hokage's method is the only one that works for rooting the G Stylo.

    Yea used Kingroot after i installed the 5.1 update. Uninstalled it then updated to 6.0 and it failed. Tried 6th_hokage's method to unbrick and it did not work for me and it hasnt worked for other people on VM as well. I should of factory resetted it before i pushed the update but i decided to push my luck. I went ahead and sent it in to LG to get it repaired saying "i dunno i updated it and it broke by itself". I'll be getting it back tomorrow hopefully it'll be on 6.0 and ready to go. I did a factory reset before i sent it in tho.
