Default ZVE Baseband

Has anyone made a flash able update for the baseband, or found what the new one is for?

My best guess and this is just a guess is to get tmo lte.

If anyone has checked other lte metro phone forums and found all phones getting a baseband update that might explain it.

I am curious because my wifes phone is on custom rom and and the FOTA failed and it seems the lte speed has decreased since that failure.

Probably has something to do with the new Esteem. This one supposedly doesn't have an LED notification light on it.

what happens to my other phone?

pd: One is STOCK (this received the update) and the other is root and CWM (this not received... and return it to stock but I said the same LG MOBILE SUPPORT TOOL but says my phone is updated Already ZVD) ..

The LG update tool can't seem to find it for me, it still says I have the latest update

Supposedly, it WILL NOT update if you are on a custom rom/recovery, at least thats what I keep hearing
What perplexes me is why in the world release a random update for the Esteem now?
Couldn't they have at least updated from GB to JB?

The update was most likely certain hidden functions & other stuff that has to do with the merger with T-Mobile. At least that's my best guess.

That is my Guess as well, I am thinking it would allow the phone to connect to the new tmo lte that is deployed.

a friend of mine did a factory reset on his phone and damn near bricked it. all i had was clockwork and even then after loading a backup it wouldnt boot right. so i went and downloaded the flash software and rewrote the firmware. it downloaded and installed zve on his esteme.

i was a little upset at the fact that the known roots for it do not work. now he is stuck with a stock metro bloat phone

Any one get a prl 1005 listed in the about phone status?

Do any of you have the signal strength on this phone?

Those 2 things are curious to me I have switched out the prl using cdma ws to 3033 and the first time it changed but after that it went back and it never shows a change.
And slow speeds I have mentioned though those could very well be outside factors.

Thumbs up

Alright guys so just a couple of minutes ago I rebooted my phone because it was acting really slow... (I am on stock rom. No root no nothing since yesterday morning)
I didn't notice but the android bootloader came up as if it was restoring the system. I turned on the phone and this came up:

well in order to get our hands on the new system, it needs to be rooted first

and if I remember correctly.. LG takes their time to release the kernel sources so it could still be a bumpy road.. ill take a look into getting root but im not going to chance bricking someone's phone lol so hopefully "god" is watching over us

I used the updater and of course it wiped the system and recovery but I used the twrp installer and twrp is back, not sure if I can flash the root.zip in recovery but I think I will try it, if twrp didnt give me root.

during boot it froze the boot animation required I hold the power button til it turned off.

Some more New info for any that are curious.

I had made a back up of the rooted zve obviously after restoring that and having it boot fine I went back to twrp recovery and restore the rom only this time I decided to uncheck the boot and system so only restored data.

it rebooted and everything was back the way it was supposed to be, but the power menu did not include the restart or recovery options, as expected.

So after making a back up of the way that was I decided to go back and restore just the system portion of the old back up, now it boots into zve and the rom + data is all back the way she likes it.

What rom are u using for this zve cause the zve doesn't work no data the only thing zve works with is the aio root . The 2311 root and clockwork touch..also if u chose to try the cm10 with the this new zve . Give u a heads up when u get back to the stock zve it will do a boot loop and u will have to downgrade with the lgpnst to recover the phone so u if u try and bootloop . Lgpnst is the way to go .

The phone is my wifes so I dont want to change things up she is not happy if I do

However she has been on black plague rom on zvd for a long time I upgraded using lg tool to zve it obviously removed twrp recovery and root.
I used twrp recovery bat file, which uses adb to push twrp to the phone. So anyway at that point I had custom recovery and unrooted rom on the phone.

I used the flashable root zip to push root onto the rom and then I was rooted.
At that point I used the restore part to restore the rom as it was before I updated to zve that caused it to fail, as the kernel was not compatible.
So I restored the rooted zve and then just restored data from the other, that worked.

I then restored the system partition but over a 8 hour period I lost wifi connectivity and mobile data. so I restored the zve rooted and just left it with her data restored but not black plague rom system folder.

I kind of get what u did but if u try to mix rom and data that maybe the issue . But all of the old roms or builds dont work. The gse and a few others like the number2 . But if you dont have data you may want to use the lgpnst to do a downgrade .and try again

Now you just need to make a .tar backup of zve so someone can rip it and make a flashable zip so everyone can play.

Confused ZVE Update?!?!

Does anyone have a link to update to the new ZVE baseband? My husband and I both have had the esteem (metro pcs) phone for about 2 years and now all of a sudden we most of the time have no 3G, 4G or LTE speed! we've noticed it in the last 2 months maybe?!?! I'm assuming our phones are rooted b/c we have never done anything different to it but update it. we are currently working on the ZVD baseband! Please help

To get root all I did was use the twrp script to get custom recovery then in recovery flash the root zip.
No need to try and get a root exploit.

Seems like this update was just a bunch of apps... I think. I haven't been on stock in a while. Pretty disappointing. Hoping for an update to 4.0 or at least a fix for the battery drain or random slowing down that happens to the phone every so often. What the hell is LG doing?

you need to download a recovery flashable super user zip.

Which what depends on you, I used chainfire's SuperSU found it on xda forums.
