    ATTENTION: MARKET WILL STILL BE BROKEN AFTER CLEARING CACHES AFTER FLASHING SORRY BUT THIS IS HOW IT WORKS. AFTER YOU GET BACK INTO ANDROID TURN OFF. BOOT INTO RECOVERY AND CLEAR CACHES AGAIN. REBOOT. MARKET SHOULD NOW WORK! LOOKING INTO AS TO WHY THIS IS BUT BEEN PREOCCUPIED....WITH "SOMETHING"

    This is the latest radio that is included in the VS740ZVC Update.
    This is ONLY for users of custom roms (Raptor, Velocity, etc...)

    DO NOT FLASH IF YOU ALREADY HAVE THE UPDATE! ONLY FLASH THIS ONCE.

    It is possible to brick your phone by flashing a new radio.

    Flash this like you would a kernel, Wipe Dalvik-Cache and Cache,

    DO NOT WIPE DATA.

    This package is signed and can be flashed on its own via recovery without a rom or kernel.

    Download here: VS740MVC.5210.1015_baseband.zip

    Download and place on root of SD Card

    Boot into Recovery (Send+Menu+Power)

    Wipe Cache and Dalvik Cache

    Choose flash zip from sd card

    Choose the zip file you downloaded

    Let it flash

    Reboot.

    Don't forget to say thanks!

    NOTICE: If market does not work reboot to recovery and wipe caches

    The new radio may not be reflected in the about phone panel, this is normal. There is a bug in the LG Ally that prevents this change from being shown if it was not applied OTA with stock recovery.

    The usual, better signal? They never release a change log with this. i just ripped it from the OTA update.

    I flashed it, but did not wipe dalvik or cache after. (this should not effect the result, I don't think...)
    I restarted and the blue LED did not flash but it started normally.
    I restarted again and the blue LED flashed twice.
    In "About" the baseband still appears not to have updated.
    My market won't download apps. (I know this is a symptom of the flash and not wiping the dalvik or cache.)
    Does this mean it worked?

    Hmmm, after flashing this my internal memory went from 120mb free to 70mb free. Any ideas?

    I know a lot of people have a hard time reading on here so I'm going to super size it.

    ONLY INSTALL IF YOU ARE RUNNING A CUSTOM ROM!
    MAKE SURE TO WIPE CACHE AND DALVIK CACHE!
    DO NOT WIPE DATA!
    ONLY FLASH THIS ZIP ONCE OR YOU MAY BRICK YOUR PHONE!

    Sometimes it shows up, sometimes it doesn't. If the package flashed then you have the new radio.

    Dumb Question: I'm running stock rom but a non-stock recovery and kernal. The update would not install OTA. Can I flash this, or no? I read the disclaimer, but I'm not sure if that includes me or not. Thanks as always!

    If I flash this radio and the new verision of Velocity or Raptor comes out, do I have to reflash this radio img, if I flash the new ROM or is this a permanent radio?

    I know that, I'm asking if it flashed correctly. I don't want to brick my phone for flashing it again if it already worked. If About says that I still have MVB baseband, did it update? Thanks for the response though.

    Edit:
    I see, so if my market does not work, is this proof that the flash worked.
    The big question: How can I know for sure if it did flash?

    Edit x2: I don't mean to sound like a noob, I just want to be extra careful with my phone.The flash didn't seem to work right. I want to reflash it if it failed, but how can I know if it failed or worked?

    Bottom line? You won't know if it failed or was a success unless you remember what the update said when you flashed it.

    If the market isn't working then you didn't do something right. Did you clear cache and dalvik cache?

    About phone>baseband will not reflect changes! If led flashes blue it worked. If recovery says to reboot to complete. It flashed ok. If you didnt clear caches the market will not work. The led will not always flash

    Mine says the same thing as Mitchell's, my light did not flash, my market was broken until I cleared Cache and Dalvik Cache again (even though I did clear it before and after)... we're all getting similar results.

    I would say that if your phone is generally working the way you want, and you're not having major connectivity issues, don't feel like you have to flash this radio update. My daddy always said "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!"

    'Nuff Said! :D
