    Hmm... it's not anywhere on the SD card?

    And what do you mean by the extracted V5 software?

    No its not. i checked every folder i had. did a search. etc

    and the v6 software is what comes on the lg ally or it did when i got it. i flashed my phone to the v9 software and i flashed it back to the v6 software because i missed root. and i couldnt get it to work on v9. while my phone was getting flashed to v6 i went in and copied the folder the wdb and wdh files were extracted to. so i now have a folder with the extracted zs740zv6 software

    Nice! I'll download it right after I get out of the shower to take a look and then I'll pass it along to my friend who is going to assist me in making the custom recovery.

    Thanks! :)

    Please do! Is there a complete boot.img file within?

    Turns out the one from the update file you gave me is just a patch image (boot.img.p), so it may or may not work..

    Well I didn't mean that you got me the wrong file.. just that LG didn't include a complete boot.img file within.

    Thanks for uploading that..
