I have yet to have to use this or the other method, but let me be the first to commend you for taking the time to put this together. It is very thorough. If anyone still has problems with their phone let me reiterate: reprogram your phone with LG tools and leave it alone! You tamper at your own risk!!!

Well I'm planning on buying my Optimus M this Friday and all I can say is thanks to Andyo. You sir have been completely professional about this entire issue and have gone above and beyond to help everyone out who wants to downgrade.

I'm sure I will end up getting an M with2.2.1(will besurprised if it's not) and I will be using this method myself.

Thanks again Andyo, you are one of many great contributers to this forum.

Andyo70 thank you for you tutorial.
I have just tried this method 2 times step-by-step, exactly as you showed, on two different computers. But unfortunately same result - screen goes black (on 86%, after first reboot, screen goes&stays black, metro greeting sound).

edodonnell has posted up a BIN file in this thread: http://androidforums.com/lg-optimus-m/272153-downgrade-fail-3-times.html#post2250035

Using this instead of the TOT file in my bundle will get you back to a working phone but you'll have 2.2.1 again.

Oh I was always able to restore my phone to a working state with the phone recovery option.but the downgrade method doesn't seem to work on phones that came with 2.2
1.I did my girls phone first try and hers came with 2.2

Looks like phone can be rooted after LGNPST update with MS690ZV4_26-root.BIN/SCR: MS690ZV3_36.scr/MPC_AWS_3014.prl, but it no longer connects to network - "Mobile network not available". Is there way to fix issue?

I'm having an issue as far as LGNPST recognizing my phone. When I connect it. It display Unknown Model but shows what Software version I am running but gives me no option to to open and browse for the older rom along with my start button being dimmed out. Any Ideas?

You don't have a Optimus M? If you do and properly have your drivers and LGNPST installed then it should recognize you're phone.

I'm gonna try it on my 2k8 Enterprise server and see if it works but in the mean time. I've followed your video down to a T, as far as installing LGNPST. As far as my phone, I It is an Optimus M, trust me. It was originally running 2.2 and its 2.2.1 which is why I wanted to revert it back to v3. I just don't understand why it doesn't display the model number but displays MS690ZV4 Com 18. I understand you may say user error to me but everything works except for displaying the model number of the phone. Which leads me to believe its a driver issue. I'm running Windows 7 x64 Ultimate just like yours.

Look in the folder "C:\LG Electronics\LGNPST"

Is there a folder in there named "Components 5.0"?

If not your 5.0 components may be hiding in the Components 4.0 folder.

If that occurred them follow these steps:

Component and Generic installers sometime install the newest versions of the files into the 4.0 folder for some reason.

Check in C:\LG Electronics\LGNPST\ and make sure there is a folder named "Components 5.0" in there. There should already be folders named "1.0, 2.0, 3.0, 4.0".

If there's no Components 5.0 folder, make one, then go into the Components
4.0 folder where the 5.0 files are probably hiding.

Copy and paste, NOT DRAG AND DROP, all these files from the 4.0 folder into the 5.0 folder:

CommandProcessor5.dll
LGNPST_BaseModel5.dll
LGNPST_BasicComControl5.dll
LGNPST_Command5.dll
LGNPST_DLManager5.dll
LGNPST_EFS5.dll
LGNPST_ERS5.dll
LGNPST_FLASH5.dll
LGNPST_Log5.dll
LGNPST_MemoryTransfer5.dll
LGNPST\Components 5.0\LGNPST_NVStorage5.dll
LGNPST_OneBinary5.dll
LGNPST_PortManager5.dll
LGNPST_Script5.dll
LGNPST_Security5.dll
LGNPST_UI5.dll
LGNPST_Utility5.dll
COMRegManager.exe
InstallComList_Root.txt

After you do that, open the InstallComList_Root.txt in the 5.0 folder with a text editor and delete all the text. Then copy and paste all of the following text into it:

C:\LG Electronics\LGNPST\Components 5.0\CommandProcessor5.dll
C:\LG Electronics\LGNPST\Components 5.0\LGNPST_BaseModel5.dll
C:\LG Electronics\LGNPST\Components 5.0\LGNPST_BasicComControl5.dll
C:\LG Electronics\LGNPST\Components 5.0\LGNPST_Command5.dll
C:\LG Electronics\LGNPST\Components 5.0\LGNPST_DLManager5.dll
C:\LG Electronics\LGNPST\Components 5.0\LGNPST_EFS5.dll
C:\LG Electronics\LGNPST\Components 5.0\LGNPST_ERS5.dll
C:\LG Electronics\LGNPST\Components 5.0\LGNPST_FLASH5.dll
C:\LG Electronics\LGNPST\Components 5.0\LGNPST_Log5.dll
C:\LG Electronics\LGNPST\Components 5.0\LGNPST_MemoryTransfer5.dll
C:\LG Electronics\LGNPST\Components 5.0\LGNPST_NVStorage5.dll
C:\LG Electronics\LGNPST\Components 5.0\LGNPST_OneBinary5.dll
C:\LG Electronics\LGNPST\Components 5.0\LGNPST_PortManager5.dll
C:\LG Electronics\LGNPST\Components 5.0\LGNPST_Script5.dll
C:\LG Electronics\LGNPST\Components 5.0\LGNPST_Security5.dll
C:\LG Electronics\LGNPST\Components 5.0\LGNPST_UI5.dll
C:\LG Electronics\LGNPST\Components 5.0\LGNPST_Utility5.dll

Save the file with this new text in it and things should be fine after that.




Also did you set Reggie.exe to run in XP compatibility mode and did you drag and drop MS690.dll on top of Reggie.exe?

Did you try in LGNPST going up to "File" and then "select dll" and then checking "MS690.dll"?

Make sure in "C:\LG Electronics\LGNPST" there is a folder called "Model".

Inside should be the following:

Another folder named "MTP"
Inside "MTP" folder should be:
Common_UserSCR_00.scr
MPC_AWS_3014.prl
MS690.dll
MS690_CmdInfo.xml
MS690ZV3_36.S3_36.P3014.tot
MS690ZV3_36.scr
Reggie.exe
Setting.xml
Setup.exe


If these are not present you have not set up LGNPST properly.

BTW you will only have "MS690_CmdInfo.xml" and "Setting.xml" in the "Model/MTP" folder if you properly registered MS690.dll with Reggie.exe

Well if everything is there and you have the same Windows 7 Ultimate x64 setup as I do it should work flawlessly if you followed everything to the "T".

My time on this matter has pasted it's threshold. Good luck with Win2k8.

I really do appreciate all your help in this matter and everything you have done so far for us. When I get some time, i'll trouble shoot why my main W7 machine won't recognize it but my server does. Thanks once again.

That happened to me on my laptop with windows 7. I attempted to change the properties to be compatible with windows xp sp3 but could never get it to work.

I went to another laptop I have with windows XP and had no issues with LGNPST seeing my LG. Gave me all information and read the model number

Never figured out what process I was doing wrong but if you have another pc in the house with xp give it a whirl.

Your selecting LGNPST_General.exe instead of LGNPST.exe which is included in the LG-LGNPST12.7z. The one your selecting is already in the LG electronics folder. Remember to place LGNPST.exe in the folder and create a shortcut to your desktop.

I followed all your directions, but for some reason after it shows the phone info; the program stays open for at least 15-30 secs before closing. If I do manage to get everything done fast enough and press upgrade, nothing really pops up and CDMA manager doesn't detect the phone. I'm confused.

EDIT: The program just works, and I followed the directions on how to get everything properly set up. Reggie also successfully installed so I will try to the process when my friend (phone owner who wanted it hacked) finishes showering. I'll also update this post to give a report on whether it worked or not.

Update: black screen; followed all directions.

Update2: Was able to restore the phone so it was only a semi-brick.

Greetings everyone!
I'm right there with ya' maczroid, and I am computer literate. Jailbreaking my daughters iphone was easy peezy compared to rooting an android v2.2.1.
My wife and I just purchased our Optimus M's about a week ago, now it's up to me to figure out how to remove the bloatware and change, or remove, the MetroPCS boot screen.

Has anyone used, is familiar with, and or had any success using the Absolute System Root Tool to root v2.2.1?

Thank you

Well I just have used it to change the boot the screen and also the fonts. But I`ve never heard of anything of rooting 2.2.1 with that app.

Thanks, and you're right. I assumed it was a rooting tool, not a tool to change things once a phone is rooted.
How about MikesTooLz Samsung Galaxy Indulge MetroPCS bloatware remover script? Would this work on an LG Optimus M?

Me too. I want to know how to make my own roms. I am sick of not having control over my phone. I am sick of not being able to fix this thing. I am sick of it. This is completely frustrating. My whole business was tied into that phone and it is completely useless.

I know tech shit, and I can wrap my head around this shit. Where do I go to learn about making Roms? I'm so pissed off at this phone that I want to beat the shit out of something.

First of all, thank you for all the help andyo. ;-)

I'm hoping Andy or anyone has a clue here ...

I have 4 phones I bought for the family.
2 of them came with 2.2. (Using z4root, no problem.)
2 of them came with 2.2.1

I upgraded one of the 2.2 phones to 2.2.1, then couldn't root, so I used the LGMobileUpdate method to downgrade to 2.2. No problem.

Then I try to downgrade one of the ones that shipped with 2.2.1. I get the black screen problem. It scares you at first, you think you bricked the phone, but I'm able to get out of trouble by running the standard LG mobile support tool update utility B2CAppSetup.exe, to upgrade to 2.2.1.

BTW, when you have the black screen problem, it's only the screen that doesn't work. By holding two phones side by side, and clicking on precisely the same locations (on the black phone and the good phone) I am able to enter USB debugging mode. But that doesn't seem to be useful in anyway, and it's tough to do this blind. But I mention it because it's useful information. It suggests there's a problem with the screen, and hopefully nothing else.

Then I searched more, and found the new & improved LGNPST method. I did this, but unfortunately the result was the same - I get the black screen.

So I can only reach one conclusion: They must have created a newer version of the hardware, which requires some newer version of software, and they put the new software changes into 2.2.1 and shipped that. So now I'm wondering...

(a) Is there any hope for someone to root 2.2.1?
(b) I wonder if it's possible for me to look through the files of the 2.2.1 and the 2.2, and compare them to see what's different, and then backport the necessary changes into 2.2, to make a 2.2 rom which will work on a phone that shipped with 2.2.1 ...
(c) How do you download a copy of the firmware to a file on the computer?
(d) If you download said rom file, how can you look inside it?
(e) If you succeed in finding something you want to copy, how do you modify the 2.2 rom file?

This all sounds like a long shot. But I'm going to try. And it would sure be nice if anyone who knows more than me has any guidance to offer.
