    Ok so you bricked your phone somehow and you need it ASAP!
    Just follow this. Skip to step 3 if you have installed drivers already before.

    Step 1: Get drivers here and install them
    LGUnitedMobileDriver_S4981MAN37AP22_ML_WHQL_Ver_3.7.2.exe

    Step 2: Reboot

    Step 3: Make sure phone has at least 50% battery

    Step 4: Get firmware here
    http://androidforums.com/optimus-net-all-things-root/615149-firmware-lgl45ct2_01-a.html

    Step 5: Download this and extract
    KDZ_FW_UPD_EN.zip

    Step 6: Put phone in emergency mode
    Step 7: Follow these steps in order (This is from the extracted "KDZ_FW_UPD_EN.zip" ZIP)

    1. Install msxml.msi
    2. Disable antivirus software
    3. Open UpTestEX_mod2_marwin.exe
    4. Wait for the program to open
    5. Look for "Encrypt cab file to kdz file"
    6. Click the folder icon
    7. Choose the location of the cab you downloaded for L45C firmware
    8. Encrypt cab -> kdz Program will freeze up. DO NOT EXIT until program says Done!!! Otherwise it won't finish converting.
    9. Close program
    10. Open KDZ_FW_UPD.exe
    11. "Type" choose CDMA
    12. Choose in "Phonemode": Emergency
    13. Click the folder icon and choose the kdz file that UpTestEX_mod2_marwin.exe just made.
    14. Click Launch software update and enjoy!

    This is a load off my troubled mind! I've been working on some roms for this phone and dreaded the possibility of bricking. You may have just saved my future sanity.

    It did come with one I looked. Hmmm
    I tested this process already and it worked fine for someone else over team viewer.

    It has no recovery, nothing. I didn't know much about anything when I rooted it. I've learned a lot since then though and recently decided to com back and try to get this one working again.

    That's weird.
    What's weirder is my laptop randomly stopped booting so now I have no PC till I can get windows repair to work or reinstall windows 7 :( so I can't find an alternative for you guys at the moment, will find one though :)

    Maybe it didn't download correctly???
    It's supposed to be 95.6MBs, both the cab and the KDZ.
