Default Android 4.0.4 ICS for LG P970 Optimus Black V28A

This is the final version of the Android 4.0.4 ICS for Optimus Black. Downloaded and converted from LG server francuzkiego:

Original:




V28A_P970.zip
h*tp://d-h.st/sep
SmartFlashTool
h*tp://hotfile.com/dl/143853325/ed430ad/SFT.rar.html

* = t

Installation Instructions

Original:




1. Download file V28A_P970.zip and SFT.rar
2. Unpack files with Winrar or 7zip
3. Run B_SmartFlashTool_Extern.exe
4. Choose:
1) ROM copy D/L bookmark
2) in Select mode choose Normal mode
3) choose CP file: LGP970_V28A_00_CP.fls
4) choose AP file:LGP970_V28A_00_AP.bin
*) connect phone in S/W Update mode with battery in it (on the phone that is switched off, plug in USB cable WHILE HOLDING Vol+ button)
5) choose COM port.
6) choose LGE Mobile USB Serial Port in Communication Driver
7) click Start and wait till end.
It takes about 3 mins to flash.

I tried Rom, Multi version, it works flawlessly

Good Luck!

Welcome to the AndroidForums, Adam!

I've taken the liberty of adding English translations (thanks for Google Translate) to portions of your post (we're an English language site, after all ).

Cheers and thanks for signing-up with us .

I'm sure they do and it should be but the LG support tool nonsense and bad OTA update has shaken my faith in updates and messing with firmware! I know it can be easy as my galaxy tab has upgraded several times with no issues. But when I was looking at my phone having failed an update part way through I was thinking 'Is my phone just broken now?' and I hated that feeling.

Maybe I will wait until I can get a new phone for free on my contract before risking this one again.

password worked for the sft but its just an empty file (at least for me)
and the link a few posts above take me to a invalid page.

i dl'd both folders like i said the first is empty the second only gave me "LGP970_V28A_00_CP.fls"
not the AP file.
when i open it in winrar it says something about unsafe header zip.

I have heard friends talk about losing their 3G connection after re-install. Do I need to save any settings first? API or APN or something?

Also what other things would I need to back up?

Any help very gratefully received.

Updated to ICS but lost some functionality. Buttons below screen do not work... back to 2.3.4 until then!

Worked it out... it was because my phone is Taiwanese and can't use the same ROM apparently. Downloading another couple from HK and China to see if I can get one to work, they didn't do automatic roll out (OTA) over here... if anyone is having similar issues please let me know. Problem shared is a problem halved, yo!
