Default [GUIDE]Flash your phone back to stock[KDZ/Cab]

All tools located at bottom of post. I am in no way responsible for what you do to your own phone.

Anyway, For those who know what ODIN is, think of this as odin for lg phones. You can use these tools to fix your phone if it is soft-bricked, or if you have the wrong cwm recovery installed and cant access adb.
--------------------------------------------------------
Prerequisites:

Windows
LG United Mobile drivers 1.2.1
KDZ Updater and R&D Tool (included at bottom)
--------------------------------------------------------
Guide
You use cab's as your image files, using the tools below you have to convert the official firmware cab to kdz using R&D Tool. Once finished you can either use kdz update or the same R&D tool to update your phone.

-For now use the ls855 kdz provided at bottom.

1.) Make sure you run windows enabler first (included at bottom) and click the icon in the task tray (it will say "on"). You also need to install the msxml.msi.

2.) with your phone off, plug it into your computer and turn it on normally. then leave it be.

3.) go to kdz update or r&d tool and click QPST smartphone. Then open your kdz file and click start update.

a.) Your phone will sit for a while and may reboot several times, just leave it alone and it should finish on its own. Never touch anything unless you get an error popup, otherwise it is still working and you could F it up.

4.) Once its finished you should see the Sprint bootanimation, my phone never made it past that point but others has loaded completely. Guess what? adb should be working even on the bootani so run PlayfulGod's AIO root and CWM and run the batch script.

5.) Then you can pull battery and reboot into recovery. Now you are able to flash a boost custom rom over the phone to get it back to normal, or you can restore a nandroid backup posted on the forum, do NOT use any backup you may have attempted using the recovery or touch recovery from the Optimus Black phone.

6.) Profit?
-------------------------------------------------------
Side Note

Ive also found a method to inject any cwm recovery file any to any kdz file. Just run cwminject 1.2 as admin, setup the files, then get kdz ready, make sure u have the right process in cwminject on the right side for the program you are using. Start the kdz update and then click scan on cwminject and it will automatically inject the recovery into the memory files before it gets transfered to your phone. To use cwminject you need to have .Net framework 4 installed on your computer.

---------------------------------------
Downloads

Downloaded KDZ firmware from this site:
link to: LS855ZV9_11.S9_00.P60680.kdz

KDZ update software and R&D tools, and all others mentioned.: [STARTER] Upgrade Kit 3.7 | Apps 1.9 | Root, Flash, Unbrick, Tuts... - xda-developers

cwminject 1.2: CWMInject.zip


I may cleanup this post later.

I am in a similar situation... Boost ZV4 Update and no root. I don't want to go back to ZV3 with the back to stock method posted elsewhere because I really don't want to screw this phone up. Nothing against the efforts made by the fine folks here. I just want a tried and true method to root the Boost ZV4.

I cannot seem to find the KDZ Updater or r&d tool from the other linked thread. And it seems like the other thread has alot more to download. I'm a noob at this so as I was trying to find them I somehow ended up on bunch of other threads that aren't even related to this thread.

nvm, I went ahead and downloaded it from other websites so now I have the KDZ updater. Now I have a problem. When I plug it in and run the KDZ Updater and select 3GQCT Smartphone (even though you have it as QSPT Smartphone) I am encountering issues where when I run it it says "phone was not found". Now I have ADB installed on my comp and when I run it in command prompt and typed adb devices, it shows my phone is listed. So now I am on a wall here so where do I go from here?

I found KDZ updater and RD Tool (its named as in the file UpTestEx_marwin) all from this link directly to XDA

http://dl.xda-developers.com/attachdl/c6f96e3833b1e2127f84f91604093476/4f9d6f9c/8/8/7/8/7/0/LG_KDZ_FW-Update_OfflineFix.zip

But I'm still stuck where it says it cannot find my phone despite i have all the drivers for it and ADB is showing it as listed.

I would like to try this method. If I can get it to work I would like to document it in detail. I am confused on step 3. Where or what is kdz update? Do all the files run under win 7?

Also, I assume someone has verified that a boost mobile marquee ota updated to ZV4 has been restored to ZV3 and made rootable again??

Unhappy Can't get it to work

I can't get this method to work.. 1st when the phone is plugged into the pc and turned on should it be in charge only or mass storage... 2nd the kdz updater and r&d tt don't have the option "QSPT Smartphone" you mentioned. I click the 3QCPT smartphone and it says device not found.

I GOT TO WORK WOO!! I can confirm that this method does work for the Boost Mobile LG Marquee with OTA Update on ZV4 version. I can give you a more dumb down noob guide because alot of the guides here do leave out certain specific details. Everything you need is on my attachment. The windows enabler, the KDZ updater, and the optional R&D Test Tool (labeled as UpTestEx_Marwin).

Here is a dumb down noob step for those that are new like me to this downgrade. Keep in mind this definitely works with the Boost Mobile LG Marquee phone. I'm not responsible for any brick phones.

Step 1:
Download monsters linked file of LS855ZV9_11.S9_00.P60680.kdz on his first post.

Step 2:
Enable USB Debugging on your phone settings and make sure its set on Charge Only. After that turn off your phone completely and leave it unplugged from computer. (option: if you have not installed the drivers yet, unplug your battery and grab your S/N from the battery compartment of your phone and write it down you will need it for driver installation. After that put your battery back in and leave your phone aside for now.)

Step 3:
Download my attachment (option: if you have already installed the LG Drivers skip step 4 otherwise go to step 4)

Step 4:
Unzip files anywhere. The only folder you should be looking at is the KDZ_FW_UP_EN and you will see a program in there called B2CAppSetup.exe run it should pop up a LG Software Installer and install the drivers from it by looking up the phone manually by going to "Customer Support" and select "Application, Manual & USB driver download". Once in there check mark the Select Model and then search for LGLS855 and type in your S/N below it. It will load up a manual.pdf and the actual drivers. Install your drivers.

Step 5:
Run windows enabler (note: If Windows 7 or Vista run as administrator)

Step 6:
Run KDZ Updater or R&D Tool and select the CDMA SmartPhone and leave it as DIAG (note: If Windows 7 or Vista run either 2 programs as administrator)

Step 7:
Browse to where you downloaded the KDZ File and load into the KDZ Updater or R&D Tool

Step 8:
Now plug your phone into your computer and the computer will load the drivers while it is off. Run the KDZ Updater or R&D Tool software upgrade and it will start loading file. As soon as you run it go ahead and turn on the phone. After your phone boots up and after the boot logo it should next show the S/W Upgrade on your phone. After that leave it alone for about 10 minutes. (NOTE: Very important to understand here. I have not confirmed this with Sprints LG Marquee, but the Boost Mobile LG Marquee only gives a 5 second window for the S/W Upgrade to occur and it is only during boot up. After that the window closes and you will have to reboot the phone to reopen that 5 second window.)

Step 9:
When the S/W Upgrade is finished you will see your phone reboot. Those of Boost Mobile LG Marquee, you will no longer see the Boost Mobile logo on boot up but the Sprint Logo on boot up. After that your phone will boot up with software and you are ready to go for rooting. However those of with continuous reboots goto step 9b

Step 9b:
If your phone is on a continous loop of rebooting and will not boot up correctly power off your phone. Then press the Vol down + Power key and it should boot up the Sprint Recovery menu. Use Vol Up and Down to navigate and press the menu key to select a choice. Wipe out cache and do a factory reset on your phone. Takes about 1 minute but after factory reset is done go ahead and reboot your phone. When the phone reboots you can setup the usual stuff (google sync, email setup, etc.). Your good to go rooting now.

SIDE NOTE: Very important to know for Windows 7 or Vista users. If you do not have windows enabler running it will crash the computer and cause your computer to reboot during S/W Upgrade. Once that happens your phone is stuck in S/W Upgrade mode and the only way to get it out of it is to unplug the battery and plug battery back in. Careful may brick your phone because that happened on my first try at this.

Well I hope that is a bit of a more detailed Guide than previous guide. And I already go my phone rooted too with the stickee thread here as well. I give thanks to Monster and all those that provided me the links (ahem XDA) for the files. Enjoy!

Glad you confirmed this.also thanks for the guide. I personally haven't done this because I manually updated, though others will find this useful! Thanks again.

Kado,
Excellent! Followed your steps with success. Very nice putting the files all in one place.

My experience: After the R&D tool hit 50% complete the my phone started looping the sprint splash screen. I pulled the battery and then followed the rest of your steps in 9b to finish the process.

Your clarifications will help a lot of people.

Have you considered a step-by-step on what to do next?

Thanks for the effort.

I ran into that as well. It happens when you either miss that 5 second window on boot up or when you do not have it on CDMA Smartphone DIAG. Like I said run the KDZ Updater and then have it start doing the upgrade when the phone is off while plugged into your computer. After you pressed the Upgrade on the KDZ Updater immediately turn on your phone. If your S/W Upgrade does not appear after the boot up logo then you missed that window again and reboot. Keep trying because definitely got it to work.

Well,

I had a free afternoon, so I bit the bullet and gave it a shot. I won't say it was easy, it took me more than a few tries and a couple of hours, but I am now rooted with ZV4 and already have ctmod and hyper kernel installed. Now it is time to play!

Thanks to all for the help! I am looking forward to seeing how this works

I'm considering taking the plunge and doing this now...However I do have a question.

1)How is CTMod's stability? I really don't want to sacrifice any functionality....

you must of selected model lg855 instead of lgls855. Make sure it is lgls855 not lg855.

I press LGLS855 and put my s/n but it says "Please check model name and msn again."

So, I used LG855 instead of LGLS855 and it seemed to work because i'm at sw version zv9 now :]

I have the same problem as piggy,

Choosing LGLS855 and entering the S/N from my phone wont go through, it simply asks to check the model and s/n again.

Choosing LG855 (the model my phone says it is) only gives me the .pdf manuals, no driver installation abilities.

I was able to D/L the LGLS 855 driver from the LG website, but I dont know if this'll negatively impact this process.

Any advice?

I was told before that if you run into this issue just use KDZ Updater or update your JAVA SDK to the latest version by googling JAVA SDK and off its website. Again make sure it is CDMA SMartphone DIAG not just CDMA DIAG. And if phone does not boot up to the S/W Upgrade mode when you launch your file that means you missed the 5 second window. It's going to take a couple of tries but you can do it.

Its fine you can download off the website. The LG DRiver Installer Software directly downloads off it anyways. So if your running into problems where it cannot find your S/N then goto the website itself and download it.

Ok I figured it out, for the ones that are having problems with the CDMA Selection dropdown I used 3GQCT - Smartphone (WM) option and the S/W Upgrade went through and did it's thing without a hitch!! I really hope this helps someone, now if someone can tell me how to get CWM on this thing I'll be all set!! YEEEEAH BABY!! LMAO!! ANYONE???

Nice! I tried the 3GQCT Smartphone before and that did not go through for me. Maybe there are different versions of the LG Marquee for Boost? I don't know at least you have it going. Maybe I'll revise the guide a little later.

Sounds like your anti virus is shutting them down or you have a virus.

If I'm not mistaken.. ZV9 is for Sprint and ZV3 is for Boost.

Bloodawn has a couple of updated base roms that can be flashed and keep root

But he used kdz to get to ZV9 and he has boost.. Shouldn't he do kdz again to get to ZV3?

I would agree Bionic, I didn't see his posts in other threads... I didn't know what he was trying to accomplish until now.

I am not sure if you are just trying to get the Boost LG855 Drivers from LG here is the site:
LG LG855 Support: Find Manuals & Warranty Info | LG USA

or if you just want the download link:

i was having the same problem with the lg support program, let me remind you when i flashed my phone drivers did not show up only manuals because i already downloaded the drivers for cv9, when i used lg support i put in the ls855zv9...kdz file set it to cdma smartphone. diag.. and in his guide (second dude down i guess its not his guide :P) it says as soon as you hit update turn your phone on well... that did not work for me because my computer is kinda slow and when i would start the program it would freeze my computer from starting the setup so i would have to wait like 15 secs and guess when its about to start to turn on my phone but i finally got it working :P now i just got to get to zv3...

I am sorry for the misdirection i gave you. I just found out that you cannot use KDZ to get to ZV3, only ZV9. So essentially you did the right thing. I would continue on to PlayfulGod's AIO-Root + CWM, then proceed to the MBv2 for Boost first then CTMod (If you wanted CTMod). Again I apologize for the confusion.

Hey Everyone, new Marquee owner here and complete dumba$$ as well, "would you like to apply update?" oh well sure. Anyway, how many other people have performed this process to get root?

Has all gone well for everyone else before I sit down and perform this? Little hesitant but hopefully all goes well so I can get Root, CWM and one of the Rom's installed and ready to go. And since no one has mentioned it, I assume doing a factory reset at this point leaves the ZV4 update installed?

Thanks everyone!
