Default LG P509-T completely return to stock?

Is there any way to get ahold of the KDZ stock firmware for the American LG -P509 T-Mobile version? Personally I don't care about whether my phone claims it's a European P500 or an American P509, but should I ever need to return the phone to T-Mobile they might have an issue with it...
I used a tool I found in another thread that is supposed to use your phone's model and serial number to download the proper firmware, but once again it identified my phone as a P500 and downloaded a European firmware. The thing is, I'm considering trading my phones in for something with a hard keyboard (Probably the HTC G2) and I obviously can't turn the phones back in to T-Mobile with custom firmwares and recoveries on them.
I do still have nandroid backups of the original firmware from before my first flash about 6 months ago. If I were to nandroid flash back to stock, is it possible to remove the Recovery and then unroot the phone? I'm sure this has been covered adnauseum elsewhere, but I haven't found anything specific to the LG P509-T.

I think you can use google to find/download 10l firmware. If not when I get home I will post a download for the us p509 firmware.

Thanks, you're awesome. I've been tearing up the internet trying to find the firmware I need, but so far no luck. I suppose I could have flashed back to stock and got the build name and used that as a starting point for my search.

Here's a link to v10s. It's the most recent 2.2.2

http://csmg.lgmobile.com:9002/swdata...00/V10S_00.kdz


Follow this guide to flash it:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&highlight=kdz

This will bring you back to Tmos stock recovery, baseband, firmware, etc. Good as new.

It works, that's why I posted it. I've tried more roms and basebands more times than I care to admit.

Hi Lawful123, it seems the links that exist everywhere on this forum for v10L US P509 firmware have been changed by LG. Any help you could give on getting me the firmware would be a huge, huge help. I've spent a couple of days searching with my p509 holding down paper in the meantime.

Is there any reason why v10S won't work? It's the latest 2.2.2 release from US T-Mobile for the P509.

If you're bricked the links I provided above will get you going.
