I noticed previously that when i try to root my lg x150 with assayeedkitchen it bootloops. Deodexing also makes some apps popup randomly and force close, even if i reset factory settings.

Now i used fbwintools and figured out how it works. It preserves all files permissions, user, group in file called statfile when we unpack ext4 image. But i noticed that when i repack it, probably during packing, all my permissions are changed, sometimes even groups. When i extract that packed file its stat file displays different permissions from the first original one. Yes, i used notepad++ to sort lines and put everything in same state so it can be compared.

Maybe that's same problem with assayeedkitchen and reason why it doesn't work...

Here are pics, see differences:

Try auto tool at https://www.hovatek.com/forum/thread-15855.html if its the same.

If you have TWRP for your phone then flash it . If prompted in TWRP, select KEEP READ ONLY then flash a systemless SuperSU
You can try porting TWRP using out tool at https://www.hovatek.com/forum/thread-21839.html if you don't have one

No method for modifying any system files of all I found in tutorials ever worked for lg x150.
Only flashing original or similar firmware was the solution.
Whenever I touch any file via some pc app like assayeed kitchen which unpacks repacks anything, it bootloops.
Maybe some kind of strong protection. Never succeeded any custom recovery.
