Stuck at "Security Error" running ICSGeneral

    OK, took the update last week and rerooted and everything was great. This morning tried to bloat freeze a couple more apps that I thought were harmless -- maybe they weren't. Anyway, later when the phone wouldn't connect to ANDFTP I decided to restart. At restart, I got the LG logo pop a couple times, then finally the smaller LG logo with "Security Error" underneath.

    Went in to the "read this if you are have any issues with the ICS update" and found that a factory reset was my best option. The thread says "hopefully will boot into ICS" and if not to do the flashing of LG signed Firmware found in Rootzwiki. Well mine didn't reboot to ICS. I go to rootzwiki and from what I can see the instructs say that I need to have my phone on "set phone to Debug mode." How can I do this if I can't get past the security error.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    You need to flash the .cab file

    The locked bootloader doesn't like those being frozen either. You can flash the cab without putting your phone on debug mode. I've done it twice now. That's your only option at this point. If you plan on trying to get rid of more apps I would suggest unlocking and installing cwm.

    It's probably the drm check that's tied to the integrated drm system app.

    I still can't get this to go. Neph81 has been kinda enough to work with me on this (reminding me about all the stuff that is detailed in the rootzwiki: no keying errors, running with admin access, etc.) No matter what I do I still get the process failing at what appears to be the extract -- it seems to behave the same way each time. I am including the system messages that run, in case someone has any suggestions. I tried to get the v6 cab to try that, but the link in the instructions appears to be dead -- any thoughts there? Is there some other way to get this phone back? It doesn't appear to be totally bricked, since I do come up in download mode. Maybe I'll try on a different machine, but the drivers were a hassle to load on the one I am currently on, so I'm hoping there's a way around this before that. Here are the system msgs:

    Sorry to waste everyone's time that worked to help me. I took all of this over to another computer and it worked. I'm back on ICS and rooted.

    No more freezing play anything.

    Is there a list of safe to freeze on ICS?

    So far, you can freeze anything except Google movies and some of the core apps like system ui. I posted screen shots in another thread of everything I have frozen.... It's a list of 30 or so apps.
  13. What .cab are you referring to? I have the same issue. I froze Play Movies.

    That you got off who's download spot?

    Download one from an official spot.

    CyanogenMod Downloads
    AOKP.co: vs920
    basketbuild downloads!

    TDM didn't get us all this official support for nothing ;)

    If you're downloading from somewhere else, it might not be the right rom for this phone. If you can't use vol down + power to get back into recovery (yes there's a reset prompt, it wont really do a factory reset if you have cwm installed) then you'll have to cab flash as you flashed the wrong thing to the wrong partition.

    Why did you install CWM from Rom Toolbox? The pwnage tool unlocks your boot loader and installs CWM all in one stroke? As for the rest, yeah, .cab back to stock and retry the pwnage tool after you install Koush's Universal ADB driver being as you're running Windows 8.
