Default [Q] fake update on b2a

Hi everyone,

I have the p970h in Costa Rica, and my current software version is V10c. I looked at this page (a page I can't post cause I'm a newbie) that there is V20a for my country, so I tried to get it through the official software updater. When I connect the phone, it does tell me there is an actualization, it goes through all the process and does the update. But, when I check the software, it's still on v10c. And, if I connect the phone, it tells me again that I should update my phone...

Is it normal?

All I want is to get the GB, for battery and speed purposes. I have read the other ways you have posted to do this; but as far as I read in the smartflash thread, the V20x patches there are are intended for lgp970, not p970h, and that can get some troubles, as far as I understood.

My phone is not rooted, and I'd really like to get the update using the program, but maybe I'm doing something wrong. I even tried to fake my country (Mexico, Spain, Germany...) thinking it would do any difference, but nothing.

thank you very much

Thank you, but the roms you posted there are intended for other countries. Isn't there a risk flashing them? Besides, my phone is p970h, don't know if that's all right.

Thank you!

I live in Costa Rica (which is, if you don't know, located at Central America). I saw there is V20a for my region, but it says it's for Telefónica. Anyways, I want the most reliable version, don't know wich is, and an easy rootable one, because I've listened there are some troubles rooting V20x (Just in case I would need to)

Again, thank you very much.

Rooting is easy. First extract the kdz file into bin and fls (find extract tool in dev section) then inject cwm with a dd command in linux/ubuntu. Then flash superuser.zip and you re done ;)

Hi there! I'm from Brazil and my device is the P970h too. I'm using Zeus v6.22 V20N Europe Open and I got NO PROBLEM AT ALL. You don't have to worry about different versions of ROMs. Install it and BE HAPPY!!!
