You run the app, select the downloaded KDZ file in the app, plug in your phone, select "CDMA" and then "Emergency" and click update at the bottom... See thread here:

Foolproof Guide for restoring a bricked Shine Plus

This is a way of bypassing the LG update tool which messes up more often than not.
I have the KDZ installed on my PC, so I select CDMA and V20B_00.kdz file from your previous post and I should be in bussiness. Also I found this very good step-by-step guide which may help others like myself who are new to this [HOWTO][PICTURE GUIDE]Update your firmware using KDZ Updater - xda-developers. Much thanks to you.

I launched KDZ App and when I clicked on READ PHONE INFORMATION it failed on MOD UpTestEX MFC Applicaation has stopped working Close Program. Any idea as to what may be causing the failure?

Sorry my bad, I did not have Phone Mode set to Emergency. I reran again with it set to Emergency this time and was successful. Android Version 2.3.3 Kernel Version vinod.ramani@si-rd10-bld168# Build #GRI40 Software Version LG-C710h-V20b. I had reverted back to stock ROM prior to updating.

Thanks again for all your help.
