    I think i can recover my phone with lgnpst, but i need the stock firmware file

    it should be about 300mbs or so maybe less.

    Its the file that lg mobile update tool downloads to update your phone

    If anyone can give me a copy of this firmware i would be at your feet.

    1. Download the Forums for Android™ app!

    well you need to get a phone that is new sold in store or someone that has a new phone not a refurbished phone in order to allow you to donwload, I did a lot of research because I ran in the same problem and read in several forums even at XDA that LG tends to do that for all their refurbished devices instead of allowing it like the new phone will allow me to download to restore, now I have to go through a lot just to download it , I have to get a new one to start the download then from then on once the download starts then connect my phone in download mode and then allow it to install.

    ive found some hidden lg low level screens, and metro ones as well. via programming in my own apps only, i will put them in the advanced section of my app. they could be useful to some, id be very careful though as im not even sure what half those options do, some are tests, programming and hardware related things.

    Of course you can't download it. You're not accessing the URL from the program that's used to call it thus you're missing identifier information for the URL to unlock.
    There won't be a way to get the file at that URL unless you code a program with the same identifier keys to get it as the LG tool has, and a midst four debugging programs, several screens of disassembled code, and extracted files/resources I've yet to find anything that even gives me a clue as to where their key is stored, or how it's generated.

    Hey Pg i also managed to gt hold of the bin and cab and wdb file for our phone. And also the direct download link sniffed from the lg updater tool. Here http://csmg.lgmobile.com:9002/swdata/WEBSW/LGMS840/AMTPTG/MS840ZVA_00/MS840ZVA_00.SA_00.P3026.cab . And that's damn incredible you guys got the hold of the .tot, i was planning to upload a vmware image for the recovery but now that we have this that's awesome. Also inside the cab file there is a MS840_WD_1_0_4_0.dll if you want I will upload it, but from the experience of lg esteem wont work but wont also hurt to try right. Here the link for the dll Dev-Host - MS840_WD_1_0_4_0.dll - The Ultimate Free File Hosting / File Sharing Service

    What dll are you trying to get ahold of?
  19. PlayfulGod

    PlayfulGod Extreme Android User

    the dll from that cab wont work, wont register like the ms910.dll wouldnt.

    The ms840.dll or the vs840.dll, or the ls840.dll.

    Can someone please explain what this will do to our phones? Will we be able to use the LG update tool? I feel like some of you are excited about it but I have no idea what it does so I can't join in on the excitement :(

    I found a file that when I unrooted my Lg Connect and did a factory reset. So I put my LG into the download mode. I found what it was downloading. I found the ZVA file intact. The ZVA was in a .BIN Format. I have the downloaded file all original. So if any one can work on it let me know so i can give you a link for it.
