Default Unbricking your Sprint or Virgin Mobile USA phone using official tools and dll and bin files

All files in zip are officially from LG (DLL,BIN,LG FLASH Tools)


I have a new method how too flash your bricked phone back to factory stock. This flash is the LG Official firmware. This flash will wipe out everything and correctly flash prl,stock recovery,all partition. So let the get the ball rolling and lets hopefully get your phone back too fully working. Please follow all steps no short cutting, or altering files may cause issues with hardware and software too your phone. Please make sure you can get your phone in download mode before doing anything else.

Directions - Please read them carefully

1. Please make sure you have your LG Drivers installed before you start this process

2. Please download this file from this link provided
Sprint Users download this zip - http://d-h.st/xoL
Virgin Mobile Users download this zip - http://d-h.st/0kd
Sprint Only LS696ZVF download this zip - http://d-h.st/WWn
3. When the download is complete. Please open the zip folder and you will see a folder inside the zip called LG. take the LG folder and move it too C: drive

4. Please have at least 60 percent battery or more and put the phone in download mode. too get the phone in download mode. Please hold both volume buttons and plug in your usb cord into the phone
5. Now go too your device manager and look for your com ports and find your LGE Android USB Serial Port. Now double click it and look for advance and then click it. now we have too change the com port too 41. when you are done press ok and close it out.

6. Unplug your usb connection from phone and leave phone in download mode.

7. Now open your windows explorer go to C:\LG\LGFLASHTOOL and look for the filename LGFLASHTOOL and right click it and run as admin.

8. The program will open up. Now we need too program the LG Flashtool Software with Official LG DLL and Firmware and Comm Port

9. Go to port settings in the LG FlashTool program and select port 1 only. and please ok.

10. now we need too go too model settings in LG FlashTool and we need too select dll and bin files. I know it will show that we show the bin and dll already setup. But we too remove them and re add them. So do that now by choosing manual mode. and then select your dll and bin and then make sure your action mode is on upgrade DL and Connection Mode is on USB. once all that is correct. Press OK Box


11. Now we are ready too flash the phone.

12. too start the flash you will press the arrow on the top left side of LG FlashTool and begin the process when you press the arrow go ahead and plug in your device to the usb cable and the program will begin flashing the device . Please don't let your desktop or laptop cutoff during the process. Please do not remove phone from usb until the phone boots up for the first time. then unplug the phone and close out LG FlashTool. Now just do a factory data wipe in your settings and your good too go

13. Good Luck and hope this guide will help you and please show me so love and click the thanks button. I busted my hump too get these programs.

Notes- If your phone doesn't start the flash after pressing the arrow. just unplug the phone the download mode will stay on and replug in the usb port you used and within a few seconds it will begin.

Notes- Please use windows explorer too unzip the file so you can see LG folder too copy too c: drive of your pc. also once the phone reboots for the first time you can unplug the phone. also if you remember your msl number please do a ##786# enter your MSL so you will have a fresh voice and data.

Out of curiosity, what does this do that is different than LGNPST? Does it just flash it better or something?

Yes it is alot better and simple and its all official from LG. If you can get your phone in download mode this will unbrick it and repair partition , prl , put phone back too factory performance. and the thing i like about this method you don't have too register dll and all that long method and I have include the official dll that people couldn't get there hands on it.

Let me guess. This uses the bin files right?
Are you sure the DLL will work? Not all of them work with LGFlashTool...

Did you have trouble extracting bin files? It shouldn't have been too hard even when DLL is missing in cab.

I don't own the phone but I plan on using your files on monday to unbrick someone else's phone via team viewer. I'll tell you how it went.
Also the VM version has ZV5 and ZV4.....why does this feel like a repeat of the Optimus V and Optimus S??? Lol...

Of course it does. The only procedure that doesn't is when using LGNPST to unbrick from download mode..

And it doesn't erase programming NV values (highly important, otherwise you have to make 5 threads on how to reprogram the phone...)

Try installing Visual C++ 2008 and 2010 redistributable to see if that fixes the problem.

How can I install the drivers? whenever I try it ends up not installing. The only thing that always fails to install is the "LG AndroidNet USB Modem"
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
