    I was trying to update my Lg esteem from metro pcs. I followed the download and instructions from LG Esteem Update - 03/07/2012 - Official LG Phone Forum. The program finished analysis and download. When it got to update, at 7%, my lg esteem screen timed out and then this appear on the screen "Download is in progress. Do not disconnect cable." Afterwards i waited for more than 30 miuntes and the program stayed at 7% of updating. Then i decided to disconnect the cable and the phone remain in the "Download is in progress. Do not disconnect cable." screen. Even when i take out the battery and place it back in, the same screen appears. I try using the Lg mobile support tool again, but it stop at 40% on analysis. Can someone help me save my phone!

    Hello and welcome to the forums . Sorry to see that u are having trouble with the esteem . Now i see that u are saying its Bricked. My question is what would make u think its bricked. Second question is why would you unplug the device while it was downloading this process takes from 15 to 30 minutes depending upon your internet . Now to be on the good side of things i hope the Ravens win this weekend don't you and i don't have gieco nor allstate . Let me stop playing your device can be repaired let me ask you which build are you running zvb or zvd

    The reason i think its brick because the phone won't charge the battery anymore every since i tried the update...so basically is fully discharge now. Yet the phone screen still turn on with the "don't disconnect the cable" when i plug it in the USB from the computer or outlet. When i load up the lg mobile support tool, it says ZBA build.

    Try the second part in this thread Emergency PB(phonebook) recovery.
    http://androidforums.com/showthread.php?p=3775233
    When finished it will have ZVB firmware then just make sure the phone has a charge over 60% and you can upgrade to ZVD:thumbup:

    The error message i'm getting is "device not supported". Btw, when analysis get to 40%, at that moment is checking the phone number and i'm not sure if this phone uses a sim card because metro phones is known for not using sim.
    name: LG esteem(metro pcs)
    Make: LG
    Model: LGMS910
    and my my internet connection is excellent.

    Correct-that's why I suggested to use the second document in the post-Emergency PB(phonebook) recovery. That is the fix you need:)

    Hmm..have never seen that error before in 50+ times helping people/or doing the procedure myself.
    At this point you might as well take it to a corporate store and return it. It happened while trying to update the firmware/not root related so they should exchange it for you.
