Default [GUIDE] Unbrick/Unroot Lucid 2 VS870[KDZ]

Ok this phone now has root and due to a locked bootloader, it is highly likely you will brick.
You must be running Windows XP/Vista/7
(Not sure about Windows 8)

Downloads
Download firmware from here: Official VS870 Firmware Thread
Download the programs to convert and flash firmware: KDZ_FW_UPD_EN.zip
Drivers: https://www.box.com/s/32c5t7fj2w8xcwr0krjo

How to get into emergency mode (Download Mode):

1. Phone must be off and unplugged
2. Hold Volume Up+Volume Down, plug in USB cable to PC.

To get out of e-mode, pull battery and unplug USB cable (do not do this while flashing firmware!)


Before you start flashing firmware, please make sure you charge your battery for at least 30 minutes.

These are the instructions to convert the cab to a KDZ and flashing it:
  1. Install phone drivers
  2. Install msxml.msi
  3. Disable antivirus software
  4. Open UpTestEX_mod2_marwin.exe
  5. Wait for the program to open
  6. Look for "Encrypt cab file to kdz file"
  7. Click the folder icon
  8. Choose the location of the cab you downloaded for the firmware
  9. Encrypt cab -> kdz Program will freeze up. DO NOT EXIT until program says Done!!! Otherwise it won't finish converting.
  10. Close program
  11. Open KDZ_FW_UPD.exe
  12. "Type" choose CDMA
  13. Choose in "Phonemode": Emergency
  14. Click the folder icon and choose the kdz file that UpTestEX_mod2_marwin.exe just made.
  15. Click Launch software update and enjoy!

If you are stuck in a bootloop, factory reset by pressing Volume Down+Power from powered off mode.

Phones don't fix themselves

Hi Guys
Sammyz, I'm really hoping that you can help me out. I rooted my LG Lucid 2, and everything was fine for a bit, but naturally, I decided to try out a custom rom that I found here.
Problem is, after I flashed it, the phone wont start or anything. It wont go into download mode, recovery mode or anything. I think I have the definition of bricked. I actually used your tutorial last time when I removed an app I shouldn't have on accident with Titanium Backup.
I am rally hoping that you can help me out.
I would be more than happy to help out with you're walk for breast cancer too if you could help me fix this phone. I only say if you can help me out because if it can't be fixed, the money has to go to a new phone..
But please, if you can help me out, that would be amazing.
Thank You In Advance.

*I know it was foolish of me to install a beta from 2 years ago.. I didn't think of it until the process was half done..*

You flashed something made for the Lucid...not the Lucid 2.

There are no custom ROMs for the Lucid 2 yet and do not flash something made for a different phone. This is how people brick their devices completely.

Lucid processor= msm8660
Lucid 2 processor= msm8960

You flashed a boot.img made for a different kind of processor. You are perma-bricked. Get it replaced as soon as possible.

Yes the Lucid 2 has a locked bootloader, but that doesn't stop the actual flashing of a boot.img, it just stops it from booting if the signature checks fail, but what you have done has nothing to do with the locked bootloader because even if the bootloader were unlocked, this would brick you the same way.

Just because you have a locked bootloader does not mean you can flash anything from anywhere.


Also something made 2 years ago wouldn't be made for this phone since this phone is only a few months old.

Ohh, alright. So that leaves my only option is to just send it in to LG to have the reinstall the Operating System.
Also, before I consider it again.
If I were to root my LG Lucid 2, can that cause any problems? I'm decent with phones, I just messed up this time and learned my lesson.
But with just root, would I be safe?
I know that with the RTC I would want to wipe the reset the phone before bringing it into Verizon so they don't charge me full price.
Also, I'm going to see what I can scramble up and I'll do my best to help out with your campaign. I wanna see that bar hit 100%, and besides, you really cleared stuff up for me, straight and to the point.
I appreciate that.

Yes you can reroot. Just don't flash anything not made for the Lucid 2.

If you were to bring it into a store you would want to follow this unbrick guide before doing so. Factory reset will not get rid of root. Only unbricking will.

Sounds good man. I'll keep that in mind, and keep this page bookmarked should I have anymore issues.

So... I wasn't able to actually try the unroot until now and I installed everything (all the drivers and the msxml and all that) and followed every instruction but when I tried the unroot It didn't work because it couldn't find the phone.

http://puu.sh/3cycV.png

Screenshot of the attempt ^

I think it is still a drivers isssue because windows is making the disconnect and recconect sounds every so often. I will try restarting my computer and trying again but I'm not sure if that will help. Any ideas?

I'll update this post when I try restarting my computer.

EDIT: Restarted computer, same error, same disconnect/reconnect sounds.

Another EDIT: Since it is a hardware issue do you think they'll bitch that the phone is rooted when I take it in? (With my luck they'll blame the root for breaking the microSD card slot like Best Buy blames Linux for causing hardware issue in computers).

One Last Edit: Tried to to the unroot/unbrick on my laptop (the computer I did the original root on) and I get the same Disconnect/Reconnect sounds on it. I think there is an issue with windows detecting the phone when it is in download mode? If you have any advice or there is any other way to unroot (or if you think they wouldn't care as mentioned in my previous edit) please let me know

Yea, just try ruining the program still with the other cable, all LG phones randomly disconnect and connect while in download mode.

What operating system are you ruining??

I think I see your problem.
Cut and paste the KDZ file to C:\ and try that.
Long file directories sometimes cause problems with that program.

And you could have ignored that error and it would have continued, it once happened to me before lol.

The KDZ file is about 1gb and won't send through email. I might be able to upload it to box.com but it is best if you convert it yourself. Just start the conversion and let it sit. It took me about 10 or 20 minutes for the conversion to complete.

I got it kdz'd but when i click start update it eventually says extract file error then finished...what do i do

One more problem. Could be just me, but the Firmware link only downloads about 22 MB'S then fails. Am I the only one with this issue? It happens on both computers and all smartphones in the house.
Any thoughts?

Still seems stuck to me.. won't go past 22 still.
I'm going to give LG Support and see if they can help. If I can get it working, I'll save a personal unmodified copy for if anyone else is still having issues.
EDIT: LG Support says LG has nothing to do with that website or the server, or the files.

Screenshot of the attempt ^

I think it is still a drivers isssue because windows is making the disconnect and recconect sounds every so often. I will try restarting my computer and trying again but I'm not sure if that will help. Any ideas?

I'll update this post when I try restarting my computer.

EDIT: Restarted computer, same error, same disconnect/reconnect sounds.

Another EDIT: Since it is a hardware issue do you think they'll bitch that the phone is rooted when I take it in? (With my luck they'll blame the root for breaking the microSD card slot like Best Buy blames Linux for causing hardware issue in computers).

One Last Edit: Tried to to the unroot/unbrick on my laptop (the computer I did the original root on) and I get the same Disconnect/Reconnect sounds on it. I think there is an issue with windows detecting the phone when it is in download mode? If you have any advice or there is any other way to unroot (or if you think they wouldn't care as mentioned in my previous edit) please let me know
Sure this is time passed, but if it is a Verizon Wireless LG Lucid 2, they won't bitch, but you will when you go to pay your bill and see the full retail price of the phone added on there.
They tried to get me on that when I had the issue you can see on this post.
Funny for me, when I bricked it, it cleared the memory and uprooted it. So it got fixed under warranty.
Just a piece of friendly advice for ya man.

I seem to be having the same problem. I used IE and Chrome and only get to about 22mb before it tells me its "done." I'm not bricked, just want to update and keep getting a "err: 0x13e" which is caused by the updater detecting an aftermarket recovery. Does anyone have a good link to the .cab?

I got an unmodified .cab file from a guy who is working some development for the Lucid 2 so I will post the .kdz and the .cab most likely tomorrow after work.
On a different note, I have a question.
When I try and flash it using the steps defined in the OP tutorial, my phone restarts by itself and doesn't finish.
Any thoughts?

If it boots, it did finish.
I can't help for awhile, this is a bad time for me right now
If anyone here downloaded a cab before it got messed up, please upload it/or the kdz file. I have it ddownloaded on my laptop, but I don't have access to it. Neither do I have access to my bookmarks to get you guys the cab for the update. Sorry that I can't help

It's all good.
Sorry for the false alarm.
It did work.
Everyone else, I will be uploading both the cab and the predone kdz file for your use.
I can personally confirm they are working and unmodified.
So if you need them, they will be up tomorrow with links.
