    I was stuck with brick at LG logo screen. I followed the post up to the point of running lgspt. I get the dll in and the bin in but once 60% is complete it errors out. It says erase fail. I cant it any further than that what can I do. I tried removing sd card, i tried rebooting the lgspt system. Please help phone is still bricked and I dont have another one.

    Nvrmind i got it, after several attempts and uninstalls an reinstalls i finally got it. For those who are running Windows 7 or Vista and are having trouble in finding and selecting the MS690.dll on LGNTPS, make sure that when your installing LGNTPS and get to the point to register the MS690.dll that you first right click on the Reggie.exe go to properties and under the Compatibility tab Check the "Run this program in compatibilty mode for" box and select "Windows XP (Service Pack 3)" Hit Apply and OK and that should do it. Thank you so much Joneidy for this post .

    so everytime i try to register the ms690.dll this comes up:

    HRESULT == 0X80020009
    Exception occurred.

    so when i go ahead and try to select the ms690.dll file from the dll in lgnpst it's not there except for C:\LG Electronics\LGNPST\Components 2.0\LGNPST_Utility2.dll

    what am i doing wrong?

    as i was in emergency mode for quite some time, i unplugged the phone and since then it's completely dead..
    it doesn't even charge..
    any ideas???
  10. So i bricked the phone using that damned "rom manager" (if i ever get this phone to work im writing him a scolding review) so i get to the part where i select the dll...well it wont let me recover the phone it only lets me "phonebook recovery" so im in need of some help before my gf finds out i bricked my phone and hers.

    sorry wrong about that. it asks for the dll but not the bin. its looking for a PB file......dude im with mikekelso421 and about to just shoot this phone.

    Ok Im stuck and really could use some help, I called metro pcs and got my mdn, min and sid numbers and have them programmed. Then my esn and meid was all 0's so I went to the link posted earlier and used qpst to input those. I now have all the information appears to be correct but I am stuck in searching for service mode still. When I go into phone in menu I get
    Code (Text):
    2. sw version ms690zv4
    3. PRL Version 65535 (which I am pretty sure is supposed to be 3019 or 3020)
    4. ERI Version is 1003
    6. Mobile Network Type - Unknown
    7. Service State - Out of Service
    8. Roaming - Not roaming
    9. Mobile Network State - Disconnected
    Any help on getting this to work would be great

    Ok I got it to work I just used the same too that I did to flash it to upload the latest prl file and then used the all 0's guide and everything is fully functional again.

    just some info.. maybe something to try b4 using the lgnpst method.. i recently helped a guy unbrick his phone in this method.. granted.. this is really only helpful if ur planning on flashing a rom or have flashed a rom and have a backup.. but when ur phone is stuck on the lg screen, plug it into ur computer and see if it is listed as a fastboot device in your device manager.. if so you and u can copy either joneidys recovery or the getitnowmoarketing recovery to your sd card if not already there, via a microsd card reader, or another phone with sd.. you can use fastboot to flash the recovery image to your phone and then reboot into recovery.. if you have a backup you can restore it.. if not u can flash to a new rom.. this will however not do anything for people on stock and trying to get back to stock. you first have to download fastboot and then using the command prompt navigate to the fastboot folder and the command is: fastboot flash recovery recoveryimagenamehere.img when thats done.. pull your battery and hold home+vol down and power to boot to recovery

    this will get you to recovery mode

    EDIT: if your phone doesnt show up in the device manager as a fastboot device, make sure u have the phones drivers installed.. also if still not showing as a fastboot device,, try holding back+vol down and power to force it into bootloader mode from power off

    hi i had bricked my phone using rom manager and i ended up buying another one but now i read this thread so i figure i might as well see if itll work. so this is what ive done so far. downloaded the lg drivers (even tho when i plug my working phone in to the computer is doesnt show up in LGNPST) then i let my battery die at boot logo screen. now i pressed all the buttons and pluged it in and its at the s/w upgrade screen, then i plugged it in to the computer and the computer tries to install driver from windows and it says "instert disk" which i dont have cuz neither one of my phones came with a disk. and the LGNPST isnt showing up the phone under emergency. Please help

    I would just point it to the location of where you put the drivers you downloaded and see what happens
  18. toke_

    toke_ Well-Known Member

    just tried that, still said "could not find drivers" or whatever. im uninstalling all lg drivers and installing agian. hopefully it'll work

    okay so i got the LGNPST to recognize the phone under emergency and i selected the .bin file but i cant find MS690.dll . The only .dll file that appears is LGNPST_Utility2.dll . Do i need to download MS690.dll or how do i find it?

    *note- i already tried with LGNPST_Utility2.dll and it said error, so i guess i NEED the MS690.dll.

    *edit - i found MS690.dll. But its under Model/MTP . when i click to add a .dll in LGNPST this .dll doesnt show up. still need help being able to select MS690.dll in LGNPST

    You need to register the .dll file. Just drop it on top of reggie.exe. And it will be visible on LGNPST.

    PS Make sure to have Adminitrator rights when dropping the .dll on top of reggie.exe.

    i dropped it on reggie.exe and i got this

    HRESULT == 0x80020009

    Exception occurred.

    And the only thing i can click is Okay. After i click Okay , a couple new things pop up in the MTP folder. And the .dll is still not available in LGNPST

    *edit - I dont know if this helps you at all but when i hover my mouse over MS690.dll it says "File description: LGNPST_MS690 Module" If LGNPST is under the file description I would think it would be registered in LGNPST but it still doesn't show up

    You are getting that error because you don't have full admin privileges. BTW what windows are you running?
  23. toke_

    im not sure what you mean by full admin, but im running windows vista, and i am the administrator user. What do i need to do for it to work?
