Yeah, it is exciting to watch it succeed after so many failures. Kind of warped isn't it.

This is what I did, I cannot guarantee that it will work for you!!! But, these are the exact steps I followed [EDIT: MOST LIKELY ONLY WORKS WITH WINDOWS XP OR IF YOU USE XP MODE IN 7]:

If you are on a stock, unrooted ROM, then follow the guide here. Use the V21Y.kdz HERE instead of of the one in the guide. Only do steps 1, 3 (install the APX driver), plug your phone back in and boot up, and then steps 6-9. You don't have to be in software upgrade mode to flash the ROM, the firmware flasher will boot into it for you. Be patient! It paused and threw lots of messages at me while flashing, but in the end it worked!:

If you're on a custom ROM and Recovery:

The main goal is to return to the stock 2.3.3 ROM, Stock Recovery, and then flash the new 2.3.4 firmware.

Flash the rooted stock ROM here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1179748

Flash stock Recovery back onto your phone with nvflash:

Now, follow the guide below. Use the V21Y.kdz HERE instead of of the one in the guide. Only do steps 1, 3 (install the APX driver), plug your phone back in and boot up, and then steps 6-9. You don't have to be in software upgrade mode to flash the ROM, the firmware flasher will boot into it for you. Be patient! It paused and threw lots of messages at me while flashing, but in the end it worked!:

Again, I am not responsible if you brick your phone, this is just what I did!

Man, I still getting "Your Mobile Phone Software is the latest version.
You do not need to update it."

OMG what i'm doing wrong? everything is stock 2.3.3 stock recovery, and it keeps doing it, might be because i'm using windows 7? When I try to do the update just using the KDZ and clicking direct to Launch software update the program stop working and closes, when I click read phone info and then upgrade start I it goes direct for the LG and it tells the message that I don't have to update

If I read that right, you're doing it through LG's Mobile Support Tool?

I have a 2 LG-P999DW and I update one and then this morning I dropped it and cracked the screen so I will do a digitizer housing replacement and the other one keeps saying that the phone is up to date. Anyone know why this is saying that? I am stock, stock recovery, running 2.3.3.

Below is what I keep getting.
