    Joneidy, need ur help here. I have unbricked 2 phones using this method. Trying to do a friends and after following all the instructions to the T, LGNPST just counts progress time and it never actually progresses anywhere. It never goes past 0% and eventually says that there is a corrupted partition. Any ideas on this one.

    Open LGNSPT. Click on Data recovery. Find the File
    that Starts with your phone model and ends with
    COM and NVS. Click on it and you will have service
    and everything back in place. Make sure to Click on
    the NVS file thats marked to the time before you
    bricked you bricked your phone.:D I did exactly what you
    did last night Zeroed out my Brandnew Phone and and this
    is how I fixed it.

    I am trying so hard not to give up! I get to the S/W screen on the initial plug in. I click on LGNPST and it just says (Checking LS USB/Parallel Lockkey). By then the S/W screen goes away back to the LG screen. I only have two hands and am not sure. Am I supposed to hold down all four buttons while it's in the computer as well? Please HEELLPPP!

    This guide is the best. I unbricked my best friend's Lg Optimus with this method. Except for one tiny little user error- her phone is a Cricket Optimus C not Optimus M. I said to look at the bright side it is not a brick anymore.

    I have search every forum known or unknown (& under every brick) but I cannot find the firmware/stock rom for the Cricket. Is it possible someone has this rare golden file. Pleeeease right now my superhero status is fading fast!

    Thank you in advance for any help

    Thank you for the link but unfortunately the bin & dll file are mentioned but there are no links to those files. What i am looking for is the cricket bin & dll files needed for lgnpst.

    Again thank you

    You missed a step


    What you forgot was to place that "extra" LGNTPS.exe into the LG folder.

    This is extremely frustrating.
    I am 110% certain that I have the LGNPST.exe in the LGNPST folder and, made the shortcut to the desktop as instructed but it still gives me the "Failed to load skin.dll" and I have no clue as to why.
    Ready to rip my hair out at this point because this obviously works for others.

    Yes that can be frustrating. There could be other factors involved, such as what version of windows your running, windows vista and 7 have UAC that plays all kinds of havac on these things.

    My mom took my optimus M to try and reactivate it after not paying the bill for a while. It was rooted, they tried to reactivate but couldn't and now it bootloops. Is it salvageable?

    I believe it was on joneidy's sense rom 2.2.1

    Yes, using lgnpst its easy to recover it.
    However if the esn and other information is gone that is a little harder but still not too bad.
