    *Please make sure you read the instructions properly!! People are replying to this post saying the problems they're having when the answer is that they didn't read the post properly. If you are having problems, then refer back to the instructions and make sure you followed the steps EXACTLY as they're written. Thanks! :)

    Please can you all sign this petition: LG GT540 Official Cyanogenmod Support Petition It's to get CyanogenMod officially supported by the team so we get proper updates from them and full support with no broken features. The more signatures the better! :D

    To install this ROM you need to have fastboot enabled on your phone. If you have Android 1.6/2.1 installed from LG, then fastboot is not enabled, if you have Android 2.2/CyanogenMod6 installed from my previous post then you have fastboot enabled so put your phone in fastboot mode (hold Camera on power up) when needed. I will explain how to enable fastboot on your phone (this involves re-flashing/replacing your currently installed firmware):

    KDZ Updater CarphoneWarehouse Unlocked.zip - A link to a zip archive with all the files needed to flash Android version 2.1 with fastboot (Carphone Warehouse Unlocked)

    KDZ Updater Europe Open.zip - A link to a zip archive with all the files needed to flash Android version 2.1 with fastboot (Europe Open)

    Download the version that best applies to you, if you live in the UK, I'd recommend you download the Carphone Warehouse Unlocked version, whereas if you live in Europe, I'd recommend the Europe Open version (simple right? ;) )

    Now, how to flash these versions; I'll explain in detail how to flash the ROM's from starting with backing up.

    Instructions to install ROM with Fastboot:

    1. Before you start, make sure you backup all your data by installing the z4root.1.3.0.apk file onto your phone, then open it and choose 'Permanent Root'. Your phone will root and reboot. Then go to the Market and install 'MyBackup Root', open it and do a backup of your apps and personal data (contacts, sms, call log etc.) Once this is done, go to Settings>SD Card and Phone Storage>Unmount SD Card, a notification in the notification bar should appear saying 'SD Card safe to remove'. Remove the battery cover and remove the SD card and store it in a safe place. Then continue to step 2.

    2. Extract the .zip file you downloaded to your computer (e.g. your desktop). Open the folder and install MSXML 4.0 SP3 Parser (msxml.msi).

    3. Once that has finished, install LGAndroidDriver_WHQL_ML_Ver1.0_All_Win7.exe which are the drivers so your computer will recognize your phone. Windows XP Users download this driver, extract the contents anywhere (e.g. desktop), right-click on the 'android_usb.inf' file and click 'Install'.

    4. Next, open KDZ_FW_UPD.exe
    (ii) Make sure 'PhoneMode' is set to 'DIAG'
    (iii) Browse for the 'V20B_00+Fastboot.kdz' file.

    5. Prepare the phone by enabling USB Debugging by going to Settings>Applications>Development>Enable USB Debugging and connect the phone to the computer via USB cable and wait for the drivers to install for the phone.

    6. Click 'Launch software update' and do not use your computer until the update is complete. The update will take roughly 10-20 mins to complete.

    Instructions to install CyanogenMod:

    Once the update is complete, your phone will reboot, what you need to do is power off the phone and whilst the phone is off, press and hold the 'Camera' button all the way and power on the phone, make sure you hold the 'Camera' button. The phone will display the LG logo and disappear, then display a blank screen. The phone is now in fastboot mode! :D

    Now you want to download this file: Official Link
    Put in the c:\ drive in a folder called Android

    1. Now open CMD with administrator privileges (Search for CMD in the start menu and right click on 'cmd' and click 'Run as Administrator' )

    2. Connect the phone to your computer via USB cable and wait for the necessary drivers to install. If the drivers can not be found or installed then download this and extract it to somewhere on your PC, then plug your phone into the computer and when it asks to install the drivers, point it to the path where you extracted the drivers to.

    3. Then go back to the cmd window and type:


    cd C:\Android

    Then type:

    fastboot.exe -w

    Once that's completed, type:

    fastboot.exe erase system

    Once that's completed, type:

    fastboot.exe flash system system.img

    Once that's completed, type:

    fastboot.exe flash boot boot.img

    To install recovery type:

    fastboot.exe flash recovery recovery.img

    Once that's completed, type:

    fastboot.exe reboot

    4. Your phone will now reboot with CyanogenMod 6 (Android 2.2.1). The first boot might take longer than a normal boot.

    5. You can now re-insert your SD card and go to Settings>SD Card and Phone Storage>Mount SD Card


    Make sore you do a nandroid backup before updating and backup you app with titanium backup if you want to keep them.

    How to restore the boot logo's so you can get into recovery:
