Default [GUIDE] Unbricking/Returning to Stock Optimus M Plus

First to get rid of confusion, this guide is strictly for the Optimus M + NOT the Optimus M (old)

Optimus M + Model#: MS695
Image:





Optimus M (old) Model#: MS690
Image:




The unbrick guide for the Optimus M (old) MS690 is here: Unbrick Phone from LG Screen
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Now that confusion is gone of which phone is yours, lets continue with what you need to unbrick this bad boy.

Note: The files I am using do not use joneidy's unbrick PM guide files. LGNPST will not work with the DLL that LG supplied us.

You will need to download everything in this mediafire folder: Free Cloud Storage - MediaFire
Or everything in this quote:
Once you download all that, extract it.

Step 1: Install B2CAppSetup from the LG folder

Step 2: Open LGMobile Support Tool>Install USB Driver>Select Carrier>MetroPCS>Double-click LGMS695>Reboot after installation is done.

Plug in phone now and make sure it is in emergency mode. Put it in emergency mode by following this:

Step 3: Open the KP500-Utils-EN-v0.4.2 folder and then Open "Open"

Step 4: Choose J
Step 5: Type MS695>Press Enter
Step 6: Type the complete location of MS695ZV4_11.S4_11.P3027.cab

Example: You extracted it to your Downloads folder it would be:
C:\Users\%USER%\Downloads\KP500-Utils-EN-v0.4.2\MS695ZV4_11.S4_11.P3027.cab

Press Enter

Step 7: Copy and Paste this: MS695ZV4_11.S4_11.P3027 >Press Enter

Step 8: If a prompt comes up asking to restart, press restart. Once it finishes you are unbricked. Enjoy

Did you:
-pull battery?
-connect to outlet?

What did you do before it wouldn't turn on?

I was in Clockwork recovery. I went to flash a rom but chose the wrong one (I had Samsung roms saved from my previous phone) and it installed and just shut off. Now it doesn't turn on at all. I did everything I could, pulling out the batter, trying to go into recovery manually. Everything, but it just doesn't wanna turn on

I don't know ! I just thought maybe if I modifed another rom from a different, changing the source code to match the lg optimus information maybe I can flash it without any problem. I guess I was wrong ^~^. And no, how do you put it in emergency mode ?

My OP says how someone else was able to.
Also next time if you're going to flash a rom, at least flash something from a phone that is very similar by hardware....flashing from a completely different brand is asking for a brick.

Take out battery, then plug in phone and see if it turns on, if not, there's nothing we can do.

Default HOW to get into Download mode - Proven method

Remove the battery. While holding BOTH vol up and vol down, put in back the battery and while still holding those keys plug in usb cable connected to computer and wait until you see the Download screen on your phone

Sammyz is it possible to upload everything in one file? and if not then can you just upload the MS695ZV4_11.S4_11.P3027.cab

Thanks

You cannot open this cab with winrar. But you must extract it from the 3 parts.

WinRAR will always say it's corrupt even when it's not...it does it with every LG firmware cab.

I didnt try to open it with winrar and i opened all three parts but I dont think i opened it correctly because the cab file was only 200 mb and the update tool kept showing an error at opening it

17:20:27 : ExtractInfo Error(0)
17:20:27 : Extract cab file error.

that was the error, but it continued and ended up as the same error as Irishman
