Okay so I am making my first attempt at a custom rom but can't extract the cab file. Am I missing something? How do I get the files out of the stock rom to mess with them?

Update: Got it. Duh!

This will fix that.

Stuff to Download
Download Firmware: LG Spirit 4G Official Firmware MS87010a
Download Drivers: MS870 3.8.1 Drivers
Download KDZ: KDZ_FW_UPD_EN.zip

Getting into Emergency Mode (Download Mode)
From powered off,
Hold volume up and down and plug in USB.
(To get out of e-mode, hold power button for 10 seconds, or pull battery.) DO NOT DO WHILE FLASHING

Instructions:
  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 MS870 firmware
  9. Encrypt cab -> kdz Program will freeze up. DO NOT EXIT until program shows the location of the new file!!! 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 after this, from powered off:
Hold Volume Down+Power and press Power. You will lose all data not stored on SD card.

Phones don't fix themselves!
Please Donate
Then after phone reboot factory reset from settings menu. You will then be completely unrootee and back to factory

When I try step 4, Open UpTestEX_mod2_marwin.exe I get The program can't start because LGMobileDL.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem. I run the MS870 3.8.1. Driver installer again and still have this issue.

Repeat the unbrick method from the beginning only this time have your anti-virus disabled.

Antivirus was disabled when I began the process. Uninstalling it now.

Edit: Well that didn't do the trick either, or after a restart. Going to try another computer, this one is relatively perforated with LG crap after having gone through test mode fix with an LG Esteem.

Edit Mark 2: Okay, been across three PCs now, one running Win7, one running Vista and another running XP. Uninstalled antivirus on each of them just to try to get this going, as it seemed to be the driver missing (i.e. not installing) that caused all this issue. Nutshell: Still not installing on any computer. So, I went googling for LGMobileDL.dll, found it, dropped it in the folder that UpTestEX_mod2_marwin.exe is in, and the app opens. Buuuuuuut, can't do anything with it. Maybe I need someone to explain the steps to me like I am four, but I don't see what I could possibly be missing or doing differently from these instructions as they are given. Had to google around for msxml.msi as well as it was not linked here either, could this be part of the issue I'm having? I appreciate anybody's help, I'd love to have my phone back.

Edit 3, Attack of the Edits: I might add, I hear the USB connect/disconnect sound constantly as I have this phone plugged up in the emergency/download mode. It's just not searching for drivers or anything, pretty sure they are all there and already installed.

Edit 4, Dammit to Hell: Well, looks like my problem is that I followed the instructions a little too closely. msxml.msi, as well as the dll file, are all in the KDZ zip, which I didn't bother extracting yet as I'd not reached that point in the instructions.

Always extract zips. It's a standard rule most people know to follow

Always follow flashing instructions to the letter, without skipping ahead, is a rule I learned to follow after ******* up a video card about ten years ago.
Your instructions didn't even mention where the items you were describing were to be found, and I did follow the instructions exactly as you wrote them--which was the only help that I got when I asked why it wasn't working for me here. IOW, you could write that to be more clear. I had every intention of extracting your zip when I reached the point that I needed what was in it, trouble is, you didn't describe everything that was in one of your zips.

Well the only zips you don't extract is ROM zips.

Sorry you were having trouble with it.

I'll make clearer instructions when I have the time. School's almost over, got a lot to do.

After nearly two hours, I just ended the program and tried rebooting. Got the phone's stock setup-wizard. Yay! Now I can re-root and get it set up 'right' again. :-)

Please Help: I've unbricked my phone dozens of times but for some reason this time after running KDZ_FW_UPD.exe the phone gets out of download mode and goes to just a black screen. When I try to reboot it then gets stuck at the metro pcs screen. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong or if I actually broke it this time. Thanks in advance for the help!!

Hello,

This is not really a reply but a question from a newbie. Sorry if this question does not necessarily fall in this thread. I am hoping I could get some answers just the same.

I rooted my lg spirit successfully, though when I installed link2sd, it failed to mount. So, I did the steps to root again - this time, I bricked the phone. Thanks to this thread I again managed to unbrick/unroot the phone, or so I thought . I think I did --- since I did not experience any error/problems cited above.

Problem: After unroot --- I cannot download anything from google play. I am getting this message :

...... could not be downloaded due to an error . Error retrieving information from server. [RPC:S-5:AEC-0].

Help please! THanks.

Try to remember the password and username to your Gmail account because your contacts are on that account. The Gmail account is the most important account you will ever put on your phone and it seems way too many people fail to realize that.

There's a thread that tells you what apps are and aren't safe to uninstall/delete/freeze.

Mine took till 90 too..

Default Firmware not downloading correctly

Tried all the mirrors for the firmware several times, yet the downloads seem to be incomplete/damaged after finishing when I attempt to extract. Any help would be wonderful. Thanks.

How are you attempting to extract? With WinRAR?? Don't do that. Just follow the steps. Some programs will say it's a bad cab when it's not. Only when you try to flash the kdz file will you know if the download was bad.

Do not use the USB 3.0 Ports.
Use the USB Port from the back of the PC.

So if it's not rooted, you can now go to a store and get it replaced.
