    LG Mobile Support Tool says: Your device has the latest software available from the LG Mobile Support Tool. Please visit LG Support Website for further information on updates.

    Phone screen says: S/W Upgrade. Please wait while upgrading....

    So I guess my question would be...is something happening or not?

    There's choice under the support tool options menu located at the top right for "upgrade recovery" select that..

    I think it worked!!!

    My phone is currently booted up & scanning the SD media. I haven't see even ONE LGSystemServer error message, and that used to happen constantly when I'd reboot my phone!!!

    I can also see that the icons for my apps on the SD card are messed up, meaning I'm no longer rooted & no longer have access to them. So once I'm up & running I'll re-root & modify the build prop.

    It doesn't appear I lost any data either!

    I CAN'T THANK YOU ENOUGH FOR THIS!!!!!!!!!!!

    Which icon? Don't connect the phone until you open the app on your pc.

    Try restarting it. It could be your Internet connection

    Tried restarting program , PC ,phone
    I uninstalled lg tool installed it back .
    Could be my internet , should there be a status bar while downloading ? Does that screen look correct ?

    As far as the update tool goes I'm not sure the only conclusion I can draw is your Internet is slow or acting up..

    I tried to unbrick but lg tool keeps freezing after I conect my phone and run the first download with the phone conected. so dose the phone. the screen stops moving indicating or implying that the phone is freezing. The lg tool does not say none responsive but it just stops doing anything and it stays at 15% of something. Is this normal? what should I do leave my phone alone and see if it will work after a min. or is there something I might have forgot to do or over looked? I know this is a little vague but I have very limited time with a computer because mine crashed. Sorry, but I can use a little help on this Im not the best at this stuff

    What did you do to brick it? Try to hard reset your phone then try it again..

    I did that as soon as security error first came up. I tryed to flash a rom with out unlocking the bootloader. I thought I unlocked it but I didnt know I needed an internet conection for that.

    Ill headreset then try it again. So the phone or the computer shouldnt freeze like that during the process?
