oh and yes i followed each step to the letter haha.........but no success :/
You change the COM port yourself. If it's 8, you change it to like 1 or 41, I don't remember, it's been a while since I've had to do
Yeah, change the port number to 41 manually. The video will have to wait until tonight when there's less stuff going on.. Sorry for the delay.
Does anyone have a backup to the Firmware or lg870-flashtools.zip? Both links are dead and my optimus f7 is currently unbootable due to an amateur error I did :/
Why don't you use mega instead of these off-brand sites?
I'll see if I can upload my copy to Mega.
Here ya go buddy
Thanks a million for the mega links! I managed to get my phone fixed. Woot!~
Haha. You're welcome dude.
Does anyone have an version with all the links in one file? The original one is a dead link.
Look a couple of posts up from yours, there's two.
thank you so much for the mega links.
Thank you nice people, as I have restored my F7 successfully several times with this guide after it would get into bootloops, but I am now stuck. When I plug it in to download mode, the LGE COM 1 thing does not show under Ports in Device Manager. Ports don't show in Device manager either.
Just in case, I did read through other posts and I installed "the latest USB driver for this phone ... LGUnitedMobileDriver_S52MAN314AP22_ML_WHQL_Ver_3.14.1.exe " (post #179). As my phone is bricked I don't think I can do the "USB Debugging & Unknown Sources" step 2 that is asked for in that post. Not sure if any of that matters.
I do not know what to do from here in order to get my phone working again. Thanks.
Hi I dont know if its me but some of these links are not working.. =/ I clicked the first one to get the drivers and it just is not working..
how do i switch the com ports please? lol im on win xp
ok i have tried numerous times to flash this phone and i cannot get it to recover. can someone please help me??? i cannot get plast the boost logo and the 4g screen. i try the fg tool flash thing and i get no errors it says ready i unplug the phone and its still in download mode and i have to either pull the battery to restart the phone or hold the power button to get it to restart but its allwas the sat bootloop. i cant get past it. any other phone in download mode has animation while downloading. does this one actually do that??? please help??? im stuck
nobody wants to help me??
You're either not doing a step or missing usb drivers. Using flash tool or uppercut etc. Is extremely easy. Post your exact personal steps. Not from a guide and we can see if we can do magic lol.
ok i figured out how to use the program but now i get an error. My LG Optimus F7 fails after 5 sec and said device module is different check phone or dll. My phone can't get pass the startup wizard and I am trying to flash back to stock. I am using a windows xp pc. What should I do?
I saw your p.m. I've been extremely busy today. XP is a 32 bit system so the drivers would conflict as I'm almost positive the device uses 64 bit drivers. These tools are made for a PC that does have the capability to run 64 bit.
I love Windows XP i made a pile full of joy flashing phones to boost using XP as the tool required a 32 bit OS. Use a friend or family members PC. I'm more then willing to help you fix your device.
ok best i can do is a laptop i have running windows 7 64-bit. ill try that and let u know what happens
tried twice with the laptop and same thing. download fail 4 sec device model is different. check phone or dll fail
Are you using the correct files? Laptop or desktop? And have you tried different cables and or usb ports?
Post some screenshots of the files you're using.
I downloaded the files from the original post from Sammyz. Tried on desktop with XP and laptop with Windows 7 64-bit. Screenshots will have to wait till the morning
