Well, using fastboot, I have got the LG tool to now progress past the analysis part and get to the actual update part, but now stops at 15% there. Progress, but am at a loss at what to try at this point.
To sum up, phone will not boot at this point. Can get to S/W upgrade mode on phone. Phone stops at 15% at update portion.
I have tried the offline and online update methods, along with fastboot (get through the entire steps on the computer, but at end screen shows LG logo with fastboot in corner, don't know if this is normal).
