Provide stock ROM downloads, PLEASE!

I bought a LG Gad 7 LTE a couple of months back. I was really pleased with it originally, but I managed to brick it after a few days. I like the fact that the tablet was easily rootable with Kingroot, but the fact that after I tried to revert to Supersu it obstinately refused to boot, that part... not so much. Anyway I have been trying to recompile the stock LG firmware from source, since LG provides their source code, but I have not been successful. I would be soooo grateful if FreedomPop would provide stock firmware for their devices. It's such a shame this device was only used a couple of days, but now it is completely useless. all I need is a .kdz file to bring it back to life.

    Does the FP G Pad have a custom ROM installed?
    So if I wanted to move the device over to another Sprint MVNO I would need to flash stock LG firmware?

    Can't confirm for absolute certain, but I doubt that would be necessary. The FP ROM looks identical to the Sprint stock with the addition of the FP messaging app. I've had no trouble activating FP phones on RingPlus in the past. If any other G Pad owners are listening out there, please help a brother out and try to extract the firmware using this tool.

    BTW, G Pad owners of the world, if you are listening, please help a brother out and use this tool to extract the firmware and post it here.

I have had no trouble activating FP devices on RingPlus in the past.
