Hey,

The foolproof guide should work... Might possibly be a driver issue stopping you from doing it. Try this:

Uninstall LG drivers (Add remove programs)
Reinstall LG drivers from LG update tool or use this link as a walkthrough:
LG Shine Plus?*|* LG Shine Plus?*|* Phones and devices*|* Support*|* TELUS Mobility

Once that's done, redownload the v20B KDZ file here:

http://csmg.lgmobile.com/swdata/WEBSW/LGC710H/ATLSBK/V20b_00/V20B_00.kdz

Download the KDZ Update tool from the foolproof thread

Turn off your phone, remove battery for 30 seconds
Put battery back, but don't power on phone
Slide out keyboard, hold 1, plug in USB cable in your phone

It'll fall to emergency mode... Then in the KDZ update tool, select 3GCT and EMERGENCY (Or if that doesn't work, EMERGENCY_CS), select KDZ file and then flash.

If that still doesn't work for you... Well... I don't know.

Good luck!

If doing the hold 1 + plug in USB cable doesn't work, not much you can do... The LG updater must have gotten stuck while upgrading the bootloader, which bricks the phone... Sadly, I haven't had the possibility of trying to fix this issue. There might be a JTAG solution (Flashing the device with a physical JTAG box, implies soldering box onto phone's internal circuitry) but you'd have to bring it to a cellphone repair shop. If it's still under warranty, get it repaired... Otherwise, JTAG might be your only avenue to explore. :|
