- turn off device, reboot into service mode (hold power + vol up)
- connect device to PC via USB
- Device Manager, no LG modem listed **I think my problem lies here somewhere?**
- run Windows Enabler as admin, click in tray so "ON" is displayed
- run KDZ_FW_UPD_EN as admin, Type = 3GQCT
- navigate to appropriate .kdz file, press "launch software update"
- unpacks .kdz, then PORT -1, DEVICE NOT FOUND error occurs

any advice or insight would be appreciated. and Happy Holidays to everyone as well!

EDIT:solved. need to put device into Download Mode. power off. insert usb. hold power/ vol up/ vol down. release buttons when Download Mode icon apperars on screen. proceed. Cheers to boakun and l0ng0ne on the ICR channel.

My problem was not related to language, my problem was related to successfully flashing KDZ. I use the Korean stock ROM with the language setting English. Everything is in English. I don't see what your problem is. :shrug:

Check the Hong Kong KDZ thread, I think some guys were having success flashing that ROM to the F180 devices.

hi iEthos, can you provide the link?

---------- Post added at 01:13 AM ---------- Previous post was at 01:05 AM ----------

i have got a local E975 set and a korean U+ F180L, exact software version is F180L20P.

i am in urgent need to migrate the korean F180L to E975 as well. i've read quite abit in this forum but im still unsure how to proceed.

I have downloaded the required E97510D .KDZ file for my country(singapore)

may i know how can i flash it to this firmware?

the current H/LTE band on the F180L does not cater to my mobile carrier band. it is only showing 3G =(

will flashing to the E97510D enables my LTE?

no it does not activate LTE

you need your original efs and modem partition to get the 180L work with other firmware

Tablet: Kindle Fire HD 8.9
Recovery: TWRP 2.7.0.0
ROM: CM11 by Hashcode
Kernel: by Hashcode

Dear sir!
I have a korean LG F180L model phone i flashed it with a Hongkong based kdz firmware but after this i found that there is no signal and some time it shows signal strength like -103dbm 2asu so i went back to stock firmware using kdz updater tool. Now i again want to flash a fully English firmware on it. Please help me about this because i hate Korean language.
Thanks in Advance.
