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

    Optimus M + Model#: MS695

    Optimus M (old) Model#: MS690

    The unbrick guide for the Optimus M (old) MS690 is here: http://androidforums.com/optimus-m-all-things-root/364080-unbrick-phone-lg-screen.html
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    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 :D

    Which operating system you running?
    And can you post a screenshot of the error?

    That's the worst operating system to use in general. Windows vista has its own problems.....it would be easiest for me to do it...

    My phone wont turn on at all. not even to go into download mode. It never even got stuck at the LG screen. Its just completely dead.

    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

    There are no roms for the optimus m plus (yet).....what were you thinking????
    Did you try to get to emergency mode?
  12. Kiarimi13

    Kiarimi13 Well-Known Member

    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.

    FLASHING WITH ROM MANAGER, PLACES THE KERNEL OF ANOTHER ROM ON.

    DO NOT FLASH OTHER PHONES ROMs, THEY HAVE DIFFERENT boot.img's//

    You sir, now have a brick. There's no way to fix it. Better start crying to corporate~
