    Default Dirty hack stock update to zvk [GUIDE]

    HELLO VIPER USERS

    I DISCOVERED HOW TO MODIFY THE UPDATE.ZIP TO ALLOW DELETING OF THE UNWANTED APPS SNACKING THE DATA, SPACE, AND BATTERY OF OUR DEVICE. THIS GUIDE WILL HOPEFULLY TEACH YOU HOW TO D. IT Y.LOL I WILL ALSO BE HOSTING MY PERSONAL .ZIP FOR USERS, WITH A WARNING.

    LETS BEGIN.

    THINGS REQUIRED
    1)UBUNTU https://www.ubuntu.com

    2)GIT-CORE AND GITHUB ACCOUNT @GITHUB.COM

    2) ZVK INCREMENTAL UPDATE.ZIP https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/...ySdUmnUi6y6JEw

    3)THE BOOT.IMG FROM THIS LINK ICS Boot Image with NO LG Security Error. (CLICK I ACCEPT TO DOWNLOAD)

    4)LOKI TOOL https://github.com/djrbliss/loki

    5)LG VIPER ABOOT.IMG https://www.dropbox.com/s/6gxz7q0kci7r04s/LS840.rar
    THANKS KANISHK619 FOR PROVIDING/HOSTING!

    6)RUNNING ANDROID VERSION ZVI (NOT ZVK, WILL NOT WORK!) IF YER UNSURE HOW TO DOWNGRADE TO ZVI (WINDOWS NECESSARY) http://forums.androidcentral.com/lg-...dll-print.html

    7)JOSH'S RECOVERY recovery.zip | recovery.zip | by Jaegerjaquez for Generic Device
    THANKS FOR YER EFFORTS AND HOSTING!

    8)YER DEVICE NEEDS TO BE ROOTED! ICS Universal Root -XDA

    9)ADB INSTALLED EITHER ANDROID TERMINAL EMULATOR APP OR UBUNTU PC Install ADB And Fastboot Android Tools In Ubuntu Via PPA ~ Web Upd8: Ubuntu / Linux blog

    edit: step one optional
    STEP 1)LOKI YER KERNEL

    DOWNLOAD OR WGET THE LOKI SOURCE

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install git-core
    Code:
    MKDIR ~/LOKI
    Code:
    CD ~/LOKI
    Code:
    git clone https://github.com/djrbliss/loki.git
    Code:
    MAKE
    INSERT THE BOOT.IMG @ THE LOKI DIRECTORY

    Code:
    CP /PATH/TO/BOOT.IMG /PATH/TO/LOKI
    INSERT THE ABOOT.IMG @ THE LOKI DIRECTORY

    Code:
    CP /PATH/TO/ABOOT.IMG /PATH/TO/LOKI
    NOW LOKI THE KERNEL ALREADY....

    Code:
    CD ~/LOKI
    Code:
    ./LOKI_TOOL PATCH BOOT ABOOT.IMG BOOT.IMG BOOT.LOK
    WHAT JUST HAPPENED? LOL BY DOING THIS WE HAVE LOKI'D THE KERNEL WHICH AFTER BEING FLASHED VIA THE UPDATE.ZIP SHALL BYPASS THE BOOTLOADER AND RESULT WITH OUR NEW KERNEL (W/O SECURITY ERROR) ALLOWING US TO MODIFY OUR SYSTEM.

    STEP 2) MODIFY THE UPDATE.ZIP

    DOWNLOAD THE ZVK INCREMENTAL PACKAGE FROM THE LINK ABOVE

    EXTRACT

    DELETE THE BOOT.IMG

    COPY THE BOOT.LOK FROM THE LOKI DIRECTORY TO REPLACE THE DELETED BOOT.IMG FROM THE UPDATE DIRECTORY AND RENAME BOOT.LOK TO BOOT.IMG

    NAVIGATE UPDATE/PATCH/SYSTEM/APPS

    DELETE WHAT YOU DONT WANT FYI KEEPING LGDOWNLOADPROVIDER.ODEX LGDOWNLOADPROVIDERUI.ODEX GOOGLELOGINSERVICE.APK GOOGLELOGINSERVICE.ODEX GOOGLESERVICESFRAMEWORK.APK AND GOOGLESERVICESFRAMEWORK.ODEX I BELIEVE ARE REQUIRED FOR PLAYSTORE TO FUNCTION. IF YOU DONT NEED PLAYSTORE YOU CAN DELETE THESE APPS THOUGH. KEEP TRACK OR CREATE A FILE OF THE DELETED APPS WE WILL NEED TO MODIFY SOURCES ACCORDINGLY.

    NAVIGATE UPDATE/META-INF

    OPEN THE MANIFEST.MF FILE SEARCH FOR EACH APP YOU DELETED AND DELETE EACH APPS NAME AND SHA1 DIGEST
    EXAMPLE IF YOU DELETED THE SPRINT LAUNCHER SEARCH FOR SPRINTLAUNCHER WITHIN THE MANIFEST.MF FILE,

    Name: patch/system/app/SprintLauncher.odex.p
    SHA1-Digest: DslAo9WA25TaJi+wkg/okqapEAQ=

    DELETE IT!^ LOL

    NOW SEARCH FOR BOOT.IMG WITHIN THE MANIFEST.MF, FOUND IT? NOW OPEN A TERMINAL

    Code:
    SHA1SUM PATH/TO/BOOT.IMG
    SHOULD ACTUALLY BE

    Code:
    SHA1SUM UPDATE/BOOT.IMG
    IF YER UPDATE ZIP IS IN A DIRECTORY NAMED UPDATE, ANYHOW. COPY THE CODE FROM THE TERMINAL, ERASE SHA 1 DIGEST CODE, AND REPLACE IT WITH THE TERMINAL CODE. AFTER YOU DELETE ALL THE APPS YOU REMOVED FROM THE MANIFEST, SAVE IT AND CLOSE

    NAVIGATE /UPDATE/META-INF

    OPEN THE CERT.SF FILE

    FOLLOW THE SAME EXACT INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE THE MANIFEST.MF TO A T. INCLUDING COPYING THE BOOT.IMG SHA1 CODE AND REPLACEING ITS NEW CODE DONT FORGET TO SAVE THE CHANGES

    NOW NAVIGATE /UPDATE

    SELECT ALL 3 FILES EXCLUDING THE EXTRACTED .ZIP (IF YOU EXTRACTED WITHIN THE DIRECTORY) SHOULD BE SYSTEM, PATCH, META-INF, AND RADIO.IMG AND COMPRESS. NAME IT WHATEVER YOU WANT AND COPY IT TO YER SDCARD EITHER CONNECT YER DEVICE AND DRAG IT TO YER MTP OR CONNECT AND OPEN A TERMINAL

    Code:
    ADB PUSH /PATH/TO/.ZIP /SDCARD/.ZIP
    GOOD. NOW WE NEED JOSH'S RECOVERY TO FLASH IT!

    DOWNLOAD THE RECOVERY.LOK AND COPY IT TO YER HOME DIRECTORY AND OPEN A TERMINAL

    Code:
    ADB PUSH /PATH/TO/RECOVERY.LOK DATA/LOCAL/TMP/RECOVERY.LOK
    Code:
    ADB SHELL
    IF USEING ANDROID TERMINAL EMULATOR ADB SHELL UNNECESSARY

    Code:
    SU
    Code:
    MOUNT -O REMOUNT, RW /SYSTEM
    Code:
    DD IF=/DATA/LOCAL/TMP/RECOVERY.LOK OF=/DEV/BLOCK/MMCBLK0P13
    BE PATIENT, SOMETIMES TAKES A MINUTE, NOT HANGING

    YOU SHOULD SEE THIS IN TERMINAL
    15072+0 records in
    15072+0 records out
    7716864 bytes transferred in 2.954 secs (2612343 bytes/sec)

    OR SOMETHING CLOSE TO IT, THE EXAMPLE IS NOT FROM THE ACTUAL FLASHING OF A RECOVERY, ANYHOW. WHAT JUST HAPPENED? YOU FLASHED THE RECOVERY.LOK WHICH IN NAME IS TWRP (TEAM WIN RECOVERY PROJECT) A CUSTOM RECOVERY WHICH WILL ALLOW YOU TO FLASH CUSTOM ROMS, MAKE BACKUPS, AND OTHER SNAZZY PERKS. OK?

    NOW REBOOT TO RECOVERY, EITHER POWER OFF DEVICE AND RESTART WHILST HOLDING THE VOLUME DOWN BUTTON, DO A FACTORY RESET BY PRESSING THE POWER BUTTON TWICE, YOU WILL REBOOT TO RECOVERY, THIS DOESNT ACTUALLY PERFORM THE FACTORY RESET BUT ALLOWS YOU TO DO SO WITHIN THE NEW RECOVERY, WHICH YOU CAN DO IF YOU LIKE, BUT NOT NECESSARY NOW. OR OPEN A TERMINAL

    Code:
    ADB REBOOT RECOVERY
    MAKE A BACKUP

    CLICK BACKUP

    SWIPE

    CLICK INSTALL BUTTON

    NAVIGATE TO WHATEVER YOU NAMED YER .ZIP

    DO YOU WANT TO FLASH .ZIP? SWIPE WAIT

    IF SUCCESSFUL, REBOOT TO ZVK

    STEP 3) REROOT

    IF YOU WERE ROOTED WITH OTA ROOTKEEPER IT MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE SAVED YER ROOT, BUT THAT DOESNT MATTER BECAUSE I DISCOVERED A REROOTING METHOD. DELETE THE SU BACKUP (OTA ROOTKEEPER) NOW DELETE THE APP. NAVIGATE (ON YER DEVICE) APP SETTINGS/SUPERUSER DISABLE SUPERUSER AND CLEAR DATA. NOW REBOOT TO RECOVERY, EITHER BY APP, FACTORY RESET STYLE OR OPEN A TERMINAL

    Code:
    ADB REBOOT RECOVERY
    CLICK REBOOT, IF TWRP DOESNT PROMPT TO INSTALL SUPERSU THEN CLICK RECOVERY, IT SHOULD, IF IT DOESNT RESTART YER PHONE AND TRY AGAIN BUT MAKE SURE YOU CLEARED THE DATA FROM SUPERUSER AND DISABLED IT. AT THE TWRP PROMT, SWIPE TO INSTALL THE SUPERSU INSTALLER, YOU SHOULD REBOOT AUTOMATICALLLY, AFTER YER REBOOT, NAVIGATE TO APPS, CLICK SUPERSU INSTALLER, CLICK TWRP YOU WILL REBOOT, INSTALL SU AUTOMATICALLY AND REBOOT AGAIN.

    DONE

    THANKS TO: LOKI,Jaegerjaquez69,thenameisnigel, AND ANYONES LINKS I USED FOR HELPING MAKE THIS POSSIBLE.

    NOW MY UPDATE: *WARNING* I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR YER ACTIONS. THIS IS MY UPDATE.ZIP AND MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE DATA ENABLED AND DOESNT HAVE THE STOCK PHONE. FEEL FREE TO CHECK IT--> https://app.box.com/s/uzyqbt1axcaysrn60xb5 FLASH/MODIFY @ OWN RISK. YOU WILL NEED TO REROOT*
