    All files in zip are officially from LG (DLL,BIN,LG FLASH Tools)


    I have a new method how too flash your bricked phone back to factory stock. This flash is the LG Official firmware. This flash will wipe out everything and correctly flash prl,stock recovery,all partition. So let the get the ball rolling and lets hopefully get your phone back too fully working. Please follow all steps no short cutting, or altering files may cause issues with hardware and software too your phone. Please make sure you can get your phone in download mode before doing anything else.

    Directions - Please read them carefully

    1. Please make sure you have your LG Drivers installed before you start this process

    2. Please download this file from this link provided
    Sprint Users download this zip - http://d-h.st/xoL
    Virgin Mobile Users download this zip - http://d-h.st/0kd
    Sprint Only LS696ZVF download this zip - http://d-h.st/WWn
    3. When the download is complete. Please open the zip folder and you will see a folder inside the zip called LG. take the LG folder and move it too C: drive

    4. Please have at least 60 percent battery or more and put the phone in download mode. too get the phone in download mode. Please hold both volume buttons and plug in your usb cord into the phone
    5. Now go too your device manager and look for your com ports and find your LGE Android USB Serial Port. Now double click it and look for advance and then click it. now we have too change the com port too 41. when you are done press ok and close it out.

    6. Unplug your usb connection from phone and leave phone in download mode.

    7. Now open your windows explorer go to C:\LG\LGFLASHTOOL and look for the filename LGFLASHTOOL and right click it and run as admin.

    8. The program will open up. Now we need too program the LG Flashtool Software with Official LG DLL and Firmware and Comm Port

    9. Go to port settings in the LG FlashTool program and select port 1 only. and please ok.

    10. now we need too go too model settings in LG FlashTool and we need too select dll and bin files. I know it will show that we show the bin and dll already setup. But we too remove them and re add them. So do that now by choosing manual mode. and then select your dll and bin and then make sure your action mode is on upgrade DL and Connection Mode is on USB. once all that is correct. Press OK Box


    11. Now we are ready too flash the phone.

    12. too start the flash you will press the arrow on the top left side of LG FlashTool and begin the process when you press the arrow go ahead and plug in your device to the usb cable and the program will begin flashing the device . Please don't let your desktop or laptop cutoff during the process. Please do not remove phone from usb until the phone boots up for the first time. then unplug the phone and close out LG FlashTool. Now just do a factory data wipe in your settings and your good too go

    13. Good Luck and hope this guide will help you and please show me so love and click the thanks button. I busted my hump too get these programs.

    Notes- If your phone doesn't start the flash after pressing the arrow. just unplug the phone the download mode will stay on and replug in the usb port you used and within a few seconds it will begin.

    Notes- Please use windows explorer too unzip the file so you can see LG folder too copy too c: drive of your pc. also once the phone reboots for the first time you can unplug the phone. also if you remember your msl number please do a ##786# enter your MSL so you will have a fresh voice and data.

    Out of curiosity, what does this do that is different than LGNPST? Does it just flash it better or something?

    Yes it is alot better and simple and its all official from LG. If you can get your phone in download mode this will unbrick it and repair partition , prl , put phone back too factory performance. and the thing i like about this method you don't have too register dll and all that long method and I have include the official dll that people couldn't get there hands on it.

    Let me guess. This uses the bin files right?
    Are you sure the DLL will work? Not all of them work with LGFlashTool...

    Ok how the heck did you get that?
    I make unbrick guides for almost every new LG phone now..but I first try to find ways to unbrick the phone if DLL isn't in the screwed cab file LG gives us..

    tjsanders Well-Known Member

    my mistake sammyz . its a bin file not cab file the tool will not expect cab had too download the bin. uploading new files now
  11. sammyz

    sammyz LG Whiz Kid Guide

    Did you have trouble extracting bin files? It shouldn't have been too hard even when DLL is missing in cab.

    tjsanders Well-Known Member

    I don't own the phone but I plan on using your files on monday to unbrick someone else's phone via team viewer. I'll tell you how it went.
    Also the VM version has ZV5 and ZV4.....why does this feel like a repeat of the Optimus V and Optimus S??? Lol...

    I did the virgin mobile file on purpose to ensure there was no issues. let me know how it goes with friend unbrick. I have the sprint version and tested and had no issues and I also viper 4g lte as well and had no issues. I just don't have the VM version of the elite.
  17. sammyz

    sammyz LG Whiz Kid Guide

    You flashed the VM version on Sprint Elite?
    And viper is Verizon's version of elite right?
  18. tjsanders

    tjsanders Well-Known Member

    No I have the sprint Optimus elite phone and tested the sprint version and I also have the Sprint LG Viper 4g lte and tested it as well. I don't have VM optimus elite phone too test the unbrick method. I put the the first release bin file that VM release in the zip folder too use too unbrick as safe proof too unbrick the phone

    Yep I am able too get the files and It also tell me which flashing software is required as well. So that help out as well. thats why I had too write the directions as noob so everyone would understand what has too be done too unbrick the phone. If the phone will go into download mode it can be unbricked.
