Hello,

sadly I can not install ROMs via the FlashTool.1.0.54, I think because the LG Mobile Support Tool (B2CAppSetup.exe) upgrades itself to the latest version..

So, I open the FlashTool after WindowsEnabler.exe (turned on), open the official Hungarian or European kdz file, set the settings (3GQCT, tried CS_EMERGENCY and EMERGENCY options too), then Normal Web Upgrade Test, Upgrade Start button, but then I see the newest LG Mobile Support Tool 1.7.1.0, not the modded version with "Clear phone registry" button, see the attached pic..

Please help what to try next, the phone upgraded the Android via the Support Tool to the latest F180L20t version..

Have to revert it back to original F180L20H_00 ROM first to make it E975?

Or could I try the CWM method or another recovery tool?

Everything is working now.

I have found a Hungarian forum with a method for KDZ installing (for LG G2) and worked:

(had to use another B2C program, rewrite the file C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts with 127.0.0.1 csmg.lgmobile.com IP address to make it offline)

Was hard to found a good baseband too, this one is working for my F180L:

Almost everything is working but the sensors (proxymity, gyro and such as)..
They are working for some minutes (sometimes less) then like they are turned off.. can be a ROM problem, or energy saving thing?
Still European (Hungarian) E975 ROM on F180L

With a sensor monitoring app it seems like sensors are working until something is loaded into the Android system (if the EFS partition needs time then that) and then just like sensors are turned off 30-50 seconds after phone restart..

If FreeGee EFS restoring is the problem, how to correct it?
Or this phone is bricked now?

Sadly nobody replies, I will send back the phone to China tomorrow..

I like the phone, but I can not use it without the sensors..

Reverting back to original F180L ROM didn't help.

My advice: DO NOT convert F180L to E975, use the Korean software if you buy this phone!

It saddens me that no one has answered your thread.
My phone's sensors stopped working as well, after over 4 months of usage as e975 european version.
I've installed an app called GreenPower and my sensors died since.

Still looking for a fix, good luck!
