    I have installed the necessary drivers and software. I can see my phones MED and phone number on the LG recovery tool. It looks like it will work. I have a new phone that I bought and same number. If I restore my phone, will this conflict with my new phone. I want to be able to use this LG phone as a BROWSER, but not a working PHONE. ..

    My original problem was that I could not get past the setup wizard. So I bought a new phone.
    Now I would like to use this as a Browser, not a Phone.

    Many thanks in advance:eek:

    Dude, you are a god. Thanks for this. I bricked my sister's phone trying upgrade her to a more recent version and your guide got me out of feeling like a ******. I have a Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3 running a JellyBean rom, so I'm not used to a garbage phone like my sisters. I have a degree in MIS and still I struggled to get this right because of not being able to register the MS690.dll file in LGNPST. What worked for me was the running the cmd prompt as an administrator and putting the path in quotes. The .dll file registered correctly and was in the LGNPST program as an option. Worked like a charm. http://www.androidforums.com/images/smilies/biggrin.gif

    Are you sure your trying to open the cracked exe? the one that comes with the download is not useable, the download also supplies the cracked one.

    They look identical

    I usually don't lose patience and post because I always figure it out but maybe someone can make my life way easier before I get home today. I sold my LG Optimus M online and realized it has the blackscreen bug so I tried to flash the kernel fix and ended up on the LG screen boot loop. So I came here and have been trying to get LGNPST working but mediafire doesn't host the files anymore so I found them elsewhere on the forum but the files were newer so I couldn't follow these instructions verbatim and still can't get LGNPST to work with my phone. I use an LG Esteem and have the drivers on my pc so when I try to install the drivers again for the LG Optimus it basically tells me they are updated and I shouldn't install old drivers. Can't find the Esteem in Device Manager to uninstall its drivers so I can get this going. I need to ship this Optimus by Monday so hoping to fix it tonight so I can relax tomorrow. Thanks in advance (because I know you rock) guys! Oh, p.s. the LG Optimus is running CM7...not sure if there has been an updated version but it's been over a year since I flashed anything on that phone.

    I should also note LGNPST does recognize A PHONE when the Optimus is plugged in with the S/W Update screen on. I am not sure what the OP means about the Emergency Tab showing if the phone is connected.

    This is for the LG Optimus M. Not the lg esteem.

    I know, which is why I am posting about the LG Optimus M. Please read the post before yelling at me. I also have an LG Esteem. The problem I posted about is that I think my LG Esteem drivers are telling my PC that they are the updated version of the LG Optimus M drivers, so I have to find my LG Esteem drivers to uninstall them so I can fix my Optimus M which has the LG Screen problem right now. Thanks!

    I just plugged my LG Esteem in to attempt to uninstall the drivers so I can install the LG Optimus drivers. It is telling me I have no drivers for this device! I am going to try to work around this by using a different computer. I am mainly concerned about making sure LGNPST is working with the Optimus before I move to the next step. Question: Can anyone clarify what the OP meant about the emergency tab proving LGNPST is working fine? When I plug in the Optimus, it shows a phone is connected in LGNPST but I'm not able to tell much else and clicking the Emergency button does nothing.

    Uninstall and reinstall LGNPST. That will remove the drivers that are installed.

    The simplest way to do this: don't plug in any phone, go into the add/remove programs, find the lg drivers and un-install 'em. Then download the driver for the Optimus M and install it. It's that simple.

    Edit: You won't find any thing in the add/remove that'll say Esteem. You just need to look for lg.

    Thank you for trying lol my Esteem decided the drivers would be screwy when I plugged it in trying to find the driver and I don't know a whole lot about drivers so I decided on a work around: I fixed my problem by using a different PC that has never had a phone plugged into it before. Thanks again!

    Could you please re-post the ".dll"? It's the only file I need. I've done this process before but on my dad's laptop and I no longer have it. It stupidly wrote a clockworkmod as a recovery.img and now my phone is stuck on the LG screen.:(
