    Project ViperB2G presents...
    Nigel Meets the Fox (Stock ZVI Kernel with Recovery Repack)


    About Android:
    Android is the world's most popular mobile platform. With Android you can use all the Google apps you know and love, plus there are more than 600,000 apps and games available on Google Play to keep you entertained, alongside millions of songs and books, and thousands of movies. Android devices are already smart, and will only get smarter, with new features you won't find on any other platform, letting you focus on what's important and putting you in control of your mobile experience.


    [BOX=What to do when an error occurs:]DO NOT simply say "xxxx doesn't work" as that is highly unhelpful and will probably be ignored. Instead, post the recovery log! To grab a log when an error occurs, simply open a terminal (or command prompt if on Windows), "cd" to an easily accessible directory and execute:[/BOX]


    [BOX=Code:]adb logcat
    Paste the log as an attachment (don't paste the text inside, as it can be very long), or paste it on pastebin.com.[/BOX]


    [BOX=Flashing instructions:]su
    dd if=/sdcard/boot.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p8[/BOX]

    What is different:


    • Disabled the LG DRM
    • Disabled the re-flashing of stock recovery on boot
    • Enabled some extra modules for the hell of it.

    Did you do it over adb? It's best to do over adb because flashing from inside the phone corrupts the image.

    Haha hey you know what I have no idea what i'm doing here or what you guys do. I'm just along for the ride. It's like i'm the moral support who has no idea what the actual workers are doing. I'm just thankful guys like you are all doing this on your free time. SO! With that being said, I think i'm going to stop pestering all of you with questions and duck out for a while to let you work in peace without having to answer all of my questions. Thanks for answering the ones I've asked!

    Pretty sure this was a non working dead end because of the locked bootloader, and that is why the thread just died.

    Basically this phone, while being a decent phone, was on development life support from the get go. There was little happening and it was a bit disjointed. Then comes along zvi and locked down the bootloader and with no one able to or willing to come up with a safestrap, it pulled the plug on our poor state of development.
