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 184.108.40.206-perf+ 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.
