Default Another bricked E980

A few weeks ago I installed the stock Hong Kong E988 KitKat KDZ using this guide on my E980:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...4294&nocache=1

No problems other than the known 16GB storage issue and CWM 6.0.4.4 doesn't see an external sdcard.

I kept meaning to either do the E988 clockworkmod restore method to get the full 32gb of storage or
esimon311's E980 CWM restore or flashable zip, but since CWM didn't see my external sdcard it wasn't happening.

I finally used freegee to install CWM 6.0.4.7 yesterday which does see external sdcards. I made a nandroid backup and did the
E988 restore. It resulted in the bootloop to recovery problem. Multiple attempts with LGFlashTools and the ATT Kitkat TOT
resulted in wrong dll or device error after 4 seconds.

I tried the E988 KDZ method that worked weeks ago but the R&D Test Tool crashes during KDZ extracting no matter what.

I adb pushed MadMack's hacked TWRP which I used to run when I was using CM11 or Beanstalk, hoping that it was a recovery issue.
I was able to flash it but rebooting just resulted in full brick stuck on the LG logo.

I can get the phone into Download Mode and try all of the above, but still no joy...

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

We have the same problem before.

please delete the previous LMOBILE EAX contents from pRogramdata and unimstall msxml and LG drivers from Programs Control Panel. and start again from scratch.


Take note to disable Antivirus and Enable Windows Enabler with ON.

Before you click the Marwin, make sure BOTH drivers from Windows and your phone are installed.

To fix the internal low 10 GB storage from e988 Kdz file, just simply flash the Panama Rom KDZ file Jellybean.

To answer the original question: download and use f240 dll instead. It is universal and will let you flash any TOT file, including e980 10p
