The only thing I can tell you is that to get into emergency mode with Lg Optimus One you press power + vol up + back. I still have not got mine going.

Ok I copied this from xda forum by: Zecanills.

  1. You need to download the firmware of your device. Please check here the The_ERROR thread wich explains it very well:
    [ROMS] Original LG Firmware list - xda-developers
  2. Download KDZ updater and uncompress it
    KDZ_FW_UPD_EN.zip - 4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download
  3. Install msxml.msi from the uncompressed directory
  4. Conect your device (do not turn on disk storage) and run KDZ_FW_UPD.exe (Has administrator).
  5. Select Type : 3GQCT
  6. Select PhoneMode : DIAG
  7. In KDZ file : Choose the ROM file you downloaded in the first step
  8. Press Launch software update and wait (It will be 10 minutes or so). In your phone it will appear "Emergency mode". Wait until it reboots.
And you're done!

This is what I did:

Basically on a windows machine you download kdz updater and uncompress it as it is a zip file.


This is what I did on an xp laptop.


I had to down load the drivers from the official lg site. when here you enter the code that is on the box the phone came in or under the battery.
Chose the your county and laguage from the drop down box at the top right of the dialogue box. Then from the middle you can choose the drivers. For some reason I had to find the files and click on them to install the driver.

Ok once you decompress kdz updater there are three seperate files to work with. 1. windows enabler. 2. msxml.msi 3.KDZ_FW_UPD.exe

You will also need to download the right file to restore with. For me being in Australia with 2.2 I needed V10a-00.kdz. You can find it with google.

Double click windows enabler and you will find an icon in the system tray at the bottom. Left click once and it will say on. Click and install msxml now.

Now you have to boot the phone into rescue mode. On Lg Optimus One turn phone off even if it means taking out the battery.
Press power - volume up - back (this button is next to the home button).

Connect to usb now. the lap top found new hardware and installed four drivers.

Then open device manager. Left click my computer - properties - device manager. You need to disable the lg modem driver. Left click on it and disable.

Now launch kdz updater. There will be a drop box on left set to 3gspt or similiar. on the right drop box set to diag. The long box just above the info box with a file at the side lets you browse to find restore file. e.g. V10a.00.kdz.

Double click the button below and let it do it's thing. My xp laptop is old and slow. Took 15min. My phone shut down and came up with an error at the last minute. Anyway I rebooted and all was good.

Everything was the way I left it. Just had to re-root.

My only real problem was getting the kdz installer to see the phone.
After installing the drivers restart pc. If it finishes quickly and just before saying finished it says phone not found try removing all phone related drivers including nokia pc suite and the lg suite and remove and reinstall the drivers.

It took a bit to get it right but it was worth it. How do you tell the wife your new phone is bricked?????

Anyway I going to install android on my main pc with virtual box so I can test everything before doing on the phone from now on.

Hope this is of some help to you.

u mean to say when its showing the android logo we need to press the power button fr few seconds as i had this issue try flashing many times until i gave it to the service ppl as my phone was behaving the same way after flashing via kdz it used to load and and again turn black and again come back to the same android screen . It seems to be a bootloop failure to me and for all remember to switch on usb debugging before flashing and disabling usb modem in pc.

hope we get the proper lg way of flashing or rather a safer way.

Greetings people.

FYI, I have the same "emergency mode" problems (sometimes it turns on and connects USB/SD card, other times not), even though I did not try to "root" or otherwise update my OS. It just randomly started failing to connect to the PC one day, and then I saw the evil emergency screen when I attempted to reboot to fix it.

Thus, if you rooted your phone and then had trouble a week later, the problem might be completely unrelated.

I can usually fix it by removing the battery AND the SD card. I suspected a bad SD card may be causing the problem, but the emergency screen came up even after a data reset without any card in the phone.

if you manage to resolve, good for you, but if not, try a hard reset. hold home+volume down+power for 10 sec. that work for me.

hi guyzz.. i just unbricked my op1.. indian firmware using kdz followed these additional steps:
1. reinstalled my xp sp3 os
2. installed no other drivers other than lg united mobile drivers..
3. installed kdz and followed the steps as said by 4wdvedge
4. also i had to shake the phone a lot (approx. 40-50 times)
5. start shaking the phone right after plugging into system and starting kdz.
6. finally kdz recognized the device.. wait till "FINISHED"is displayed..
7. the phone after reboot shows a android confused logo with an exclamatory mark
8. now switch off the phone (by removing the battery)
9. power ON ur device to see ur phone safe and sound the way it was before the brick..
all d best guys

Default [HOW TO] Unbrick LG Optimus One P500 from fastboot mode started udc_start()

If you did something like install custom recovery on your lg optimus one and failed, you would get a black screen saying..

fastboot mode started
udc_start()

If this happens...


Relax.. Your phone is not bricked.. There is a way to fix it...

First disable all LGE modems under modems from windows device manager..

Make sure you have LG united mobile drivers installed.. Or just google for it..

Charge your phone before proceeding even if the backlight is always on..

Things required:
Kdz updater:
xda-developers - View Single Post - KDZ_FW_UPD English version
Stock rom:
[ROMS] Original LG Firmware list - xda-developers
USB cable, Windows PC with administrator account..

Then press and hold both the back(return) button and the volume up button and simultaneously connect the USB cable..

The phone should light up and say Emergency mode!! in a green background.. If it goes to emergency mode, it can be fixed... Even at your home...

Then decompress the 7z, install msxml.msi from the uncompressed directory and run KDZ_FW_UPD.exe (With administrator rights by right clicking and selecting run as administrator).
Select Type : 3GQCT and PhoneMode: DIAG, select the kdz file and flash the stock ROM... It would take about 15 minutes.. If the kdz updater crashes, change compatibility mode or restart the computer and phone or do something till it works (Retry retry retry)...

Follow any one choice:

Choice 1:
If you want your phone to have all the data before you bricked it, just disconnect the usb when the phone shows the charge screen as if you are charging the phone while it is switched off.. (This was discovered accidentally by me so try it at your own risk) After disconnecting try to power on the normal way and it should work and the phone should be like it was never bricked.. If it doesn't boot retry flashing from the start.. If it starts and all your data is restored root it, install titanium backup and backup all your apps and data and save the contents of sdcard\titaniumbackup to your pc.. Then copy all you want in your sdcard to your pc.. Then redo all the steps without disconnecting till the kdz flasher says FINISHED.. This is because if you disconnect the usb in the middle, only half the rom would be installed which is unstable.. After installing the full rom, root it, and install titanium backup and copy all the copied content back to sdcard\titaniumbackup and restore them using titanium backup.. That's it..

Choice 2:
If you do not want the data and if you need to do a risk-free unbrick, then flash with the kdz updater and wait till it says FINISHED.. That's it..

Now that you know how to unbrick it, try installing what bricked your phone again but in the correct way... GOOD LUCK...

Relax.. Your phone is not bricked.. There is a way to fix it...

First disable all LGE modems under modems from windows device manager..

Make sure you have LG united mobile drivers installed.. Or just google for it..

Charge your phone before proceeding even if the backlight is always on..

Things required:
Kdz updater:
xda-developers - View Single Post - KDZ_FW_UPD English version
Stock rom:
[ROMS] Original LG Firmware list - xda-developers
USB cable, Windows PC with administrator account..

Then press and hold both the back(return) button and the volume up button and simultaneously connect the USB cable..

The phone should light up and say Emergency mode!! in a green background.. If it goes to emergency mode, it can be fixed... Even at your home...

Then decompress the 7z, install msxml.msi from the uncompressed directory and run KDZ_FW_UPD.exe (With administrator rights by right clicking and selecting run as administrator).
Select Type : 3GQCT and PhoneMode: DIAG, select the kdz file and flash the stock ROM... It would take about 15 minutes.. If the kdz updater crashes, change compatibility mode or restart the computer and phone or do something till it works (Retry retry retry)...

Follow any one choice:

Choice 1:
If you want your phone to have all the data before you bricked it, just disconnect the usb when the phone shows the charge screen as if you are charging the phone while it is switched off.. (This was discovered accidentally by me so try it at your own risk) After disconnecting try to power on the normal way and it should work and the phone should be like it was never bricked.. If it doesn't boot retry flashing from the start.. If it starts and all your data is restored root it, install titanium backup and backup all your apps and data and save the contents of sdcard\titaniumbackup to your pc.. Then copy all you want in your sdcard to your pc.. Then redo all the steps without disconnecting till the kdz flasher says FINISHED.. This is because if you disconnect the usb in the middle, only half the rom would be installed which is unstable.. After installing the full rom, root it, and install titanium backup and copy all the copied content back to sdcard\titaniumbackup and restore them using titanium backup.. That's it..

I did exactly as you said, i retried and retried again until it recognized my phone. And then the hell started. I tried to flash a rom that i thought it is good for my phone, but it wasn't cause kdz crashed. After that i downloaded a few more roms until i found the right one that worked, kdz did not crash anymore, finished correctly. Then when i tried to start my phone it was all good till the "android" writting, it couldn't go any further. Then i thought i should try to shut it down, and turned it on again with home+power+volume down, and it worked. He started properly, it was like new but without any applications or games that i have downloaded from market before. That's not even a problem considering i was thinking it's bricked. So this really helped me! Thank you so much blaxican25. Follow these steps carefully, and with the right rom, it will work but you will have shake the phone ALOT! It only took me like 7 hours, lol.. but it worth it!
Good luck fixing your phones, cheers!

I read that you used the LG Emergency Mode and was successful. Is this compatible for LG Optimus V also? I believed, ClockworkMod 3.2.0.1 wiped out my cell phone's software completely. No matter what I do when I tried restoring from my backup from my SD card and do a reboot, I end up where I started....the ClockworkMod Menus. I tried using the KDZ, but the program was asking for a .kdz file. Where can I get this .kdz.file? Please help, anyone!!!!

Congrats!!!!
Though your posting sounds hopeful to those with the same LG models, but have you tried successfully using the same KDZ program with LG Optimus V? This is my dilemma right now, I rooted my Optimus V using SuperClickOne 1.9.1 everything was fine. I did this so I could use some of the Tethering Programs out there to save money. Then suddenly I lost my internet connection and tried to hard reset the phone to recover from the lost till I accidentally use the factory Reset. But to my dismay,i just realized ClockworkMod 3.2.0.1 took over the factory reset. So, now my phone is completely bricked...empty but just the ClockworkMod keeps appearing each time I turn on the phone. It will start with LG logo then the ClockworkMod menus to no avail.I tried your technique, but the KDZ program keeps on asking for a .kdz file? Where can I get this file from? I appreciate any help.

Hey Guys,, I Bought lg optimus one before a month.. I was bored with V10E 2.2.2 .. I sucessfully rooted V10E with gingerbreak 1.2 ... Then using Rom-Manager I tried to flash cynogen mod7 .... it was installed and i saw lg logo after that i saw cynogen mod7 boot animation ... at the cynogen mod7 boot animation i got boot looped... then i tried kdz but it didn't recognized my phone .... then i tried the factory reset key combination and saw the "rom manager recovery menu"..... I tried to master reset but it failed ... at the rom manager reset menu i tried kdz once again and it recognized my phone :-) ... but the installation failed and mo phone turned off .... I tried to power on but failed .... Finally i took it to the service centre and they told me that my phone is dead and needs motherboard replacement ....
** now my question is that though my motherboard is dead.. will they come to know that i tried to flash my device ?? **

Thank you for taking the time to post your experience w/ the steps. I bricked my phone after flashing Clockwork and I was stuck on a reboot loop on the LG screen. After locating the correct firmware, I ran through it just like you did and got an error, manually restarted (had to pull the battery and restart twice after finishing KDZ), and everything is now running just like stock. The result is that I saved all my programs and settings, but I lost the root. Thanks!

Also, anyone who is looking for firmware for their LG Phone...check out the firmware finder this guy made available; it was a huge help for me:

I guess I don't have enough posts to include a link yet...but here's the thread title at xda: "Application for download Original LG Firmware"

Since you cant get it to even power on, try back + vol up + power and simultaneously connect to a computer which has LG United mobile drivers intstalled via USB. Then you should reach emergency mode. Follow this thread to unbrick your phone

Default bricked optimus

i rooted my optimus one using super one click and using rom manager i tried to backup from current rom during which the mobile shutdown........i thought it was backing up the rom latter i cam eto know that it was bricked.
after researching a lot to unbrick the device i fell upon this forum and used the method as explained by an user ..
1.downlaod kdz.rar
2.unzip it
3.u will find an installer named msxml.msi install it.
4.restart the pc
5. download your original firmware
6.know open the kdz folder that u have unzipped and click kdz.exe
know comes the tricker part take ur phone and hold the power+volume up+back button untilll u seee an yellow screen stating emergency mode then connect it to the pc.
7.it will detect the hardware and installl the drives and also download lg mobiledriver and install it.
8.know open the kdz.exe and select 3gqct in the type bar and emergency mode in the phone mode..and set the path for the downloaded firmwareand double click launch software update.
9.it will take 5-10 minutes
10.when it is finished ....it is done

  1. You need to download the firmware of your device. Please check here the The_ERROR thread wich explains it very well:
    [ROMS] Original LG Firmware list - xda-developers
  2. Download KDZ updater and uncompress it
    KDZ_FW_UPD_EN.zip - 4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download
  3. Install msxml.msi from the uncompressed directory
  4. Conect your device (do not turn on disk storage) and run KDZ_FW_UPD.exe (Has administrator).
  5. Select Type : 3GQCT
  6. Select PhoneMode : DIAG
  7. In KDZ file : Choose the ROM file you downloaded in the first step
  8. Press Launch software update and wait (It will be 10 minutes or so). In your phone it will appear "Emergency mode". Wait until it reboots.
And you're done!

This is what I did:

Basically on a windows machine you download kdz updater and uncompress it as it is a zip file.


This is what I did on an xp laptop.


I had to down load the drivers from the official lg site. when here you enter the code that is on the box the phone came in or under the battery.
Chose the your county and laguage from the drop down box at the top right of the dialogue box. Then from the middle you can choose the drivers. For some reason I had to find the files and click on them to install the driver.

Ok once you decompress kdz updater there are three seperate files to work with. 1. windows enabler. 2. msxml.msi 3.KDZ_FW_UPD.exe

You will also need to download the right file to restore with. For me being in Australia with 2.2 I needed V10a-00.kdz. You can find it with google.

Double click windows enabler and you will find an icon in the system tray at the bottom. Left click once and it will say on. Click and install msxml now.

Now you have to boot the phone into rescue mode. On Lg Optimus One turn phone off even if it means taking out the battery.
Press power - volume up - back (this button is next to the home button).

Connect to usb now. the lap top found new hardware and installed four drivers.

Then open device manager. Left click my computer - properties - device manager. You need to disable the lg modem driver. Left click on it and disable.

Now launch kdz updater. There will be a drop box on left set to 3gspt or similiar. on the right drop box set to diag. The long box just above the info box with a file at the side lets you browse to find restore file. e.g. V10a.00.kdz.

Double click the button below and let it do it's thing. My xp laptop is old and slow. Took 15min. My phone shut down and came up with an error at the last minute. Anyway I rebooted and all was good.

Everything was the way I left it. Just had to re-root.

My only real problem was getting the kdz installer to see the phone.
After installing the drivers restart pc. If it finishes quickly and just before saying finished it says phone not found try removing all phone related drivers including nokia pc suite and the lg suite and remove and reinstall the drivers.

It took a bit to get it right but it was worth it. How do you tell the wife your new phone is bricked?????

Anyway I going to install android on my main pc with virtual box so I can test everything before doing on the phone from now on.

Hope this is of some help to you.
It didnt work!
After doing all the reset as you say it just stay the same, its still stuck on the android screen even i lost my KOODO MOBILE (my phone company) screenshot of welcome...
Just i dont know what to doo seems like the phone is empty!
