root su760 ICS
this is a big tutorial for advanced users on how to edit LG Firmwares.
This could be usefull to change recovery included, root the bin or give a try to
change bootloader to make su760 ics on p920 work.
First download a bin or a kdz file:
Then download the attached zip file and unpack it somewhere on your
Put the downloaded firmware in the same directory.
If you have chosen a kdz file you have to unpack it with LGExtract.
Ope up cmd and go with cd to the directory where all the files are.
LGExtract -kdz *nameofthekdzfile*.kdz
upack the new .cab file with winrar or something like that, then run
LGExtract -wdb ***.wdb ***.dll
replace *** with the name of the files that you have unpacked
Now you should have a Folder caled BIN.
Use cd to enter that folder.
Run in cmd:
copy /b "LG****_AP[*].bin" "LG****_AP.bin"
Replace **** with p920 or su760 related to wich firmware you have downloaded.
Now use explorer to move the LG****_AP.bin in the folder where all the .exe files are.
Extracting the bin
Run in cmd
At first you will see all the partitions in the bin and their offsets,
then the tool will extract them to .img files, stay tuned this will take some time.
Root the system partition
You can skip this if you just want to replace a partition.
Rename the extracted sstem partition from something like "7 - system.img" to "system.img"
and put it together with the system.img into a linux distro.
In linux unpack the zip and copy the superuser.apk and the su file
in the same directory with the img
go with the terminal in the folder with the system.img
sudo mkdir temp
sudo mount -o loop system.img temp
sudo cp superuser.apk temp/app
sudo cp su temp/bin
sudo chmod 0644 superuser.apk
sudo chmod 6755 su
sudo umount temp
Copy the image back to windows.
Replace a Partition
Install winhex or an other hex editor.
Open the downloaded or extracted bin.
Go to offset that extract.exe showed you,
and select everything to the end of the partition and delete it.
The end of the partition is the offset + size of extract.exe showed you.
If the offset of the system partition is 00DA0000
and the size of is 2BC00000 the end of the partition is DA0000 + 2BC00000 = 2C9A0000
now open up the image you want to replace i with in hex editor,
select everything go back to the offset of the partition in winhex and paste it there,
just save it and you have your new own bin file ready to flash with LGFlashTool.
Hope this helps you, please post if you didn't understand anything, I forgot something or something is wrong.
