Loaded bootloader on my old p500 to see the lines displayed:
Fastboot starting
udc start ()
So I searched for udc start, and got a few references of Samsung owners who were flashing in download mode (laf) , and were concerned, because they got that message: fastboot starting udc start
If unofficial flash, they got message in red. I know that Sammy is not LG, and may be set up totally different. But I wonder if there is a possibility that our laf controls fastboot mode, or is it only one way to access it.

Edit:
So I opened the laf ramdisk/sbin/ adbd in hex editor, and found messages towards the end (1f8d8):

ro.product.name�ro.product.model����ro.product.dev ice���bootloader��setting connection_state to CS_BOOTLOADER
��device��setting connection_state to CS_DEVICE
��recovery����setting connection_state to CS_RECOVERY
����sideload����setting connection_state to CS_SIDELOAD
(Sorry, couldn't seem to copy in ascii)
But I think that this says that laf controls these connection states(but not necessarily the only way to control them).And I just looked at boot and recovery, which both contained the same adbd file (158kb)

Edit 2:
Possibly the connection state is determined by which mode the phone is in (which would make this information useless) .But this may hint that there is , in fact, an accessible bootloader mode. and we just haven't figured out how to access (without the oem keys).

Hey, I found last_kmsg (kernel message) . Seems that they tucked it away inside /data/footprint/
We may be able to glean information from it.

Still haven't found a replacement LG L34C.4 I live in Vermont, so its not like I have hundreds of Walmart's to check within a 5 mile radius.

Both of my local stores (both in NH actually) said they had some in stock, but none to be found when I got there. Either they aren't putting them on the shelf, or they aren't staying there for long.


I know, I could order one, but meh.

Yeah, I went to buy a spare yesterday, and they had none. Guess I'll have to keep trying.

I did a fresh install on another Windows 7 PC to document the installation. I am newbie and pardon me if I am stating the obvious or I cant help. My phone is rooted with Towel Root, have ADB Toggle to enable USB Debugging and PC connection is set to MTP.
I copied my folder with the adb programs and drivers to the new PC.
I opened the folder then clicked Shift together with right click the mouse and clicked option: Open command window here.
Typed adb devices at prompt
C:\platform-tools>adb devices
* daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
* daemon started successfully *
List of devices attached
No devices listed because of no adb drivers.
I go to Windows Device Manager and I can see the LG phone not installed correctly and I update the driver by pointing to my C:\platform-tools folder.
C:\platform-tools>adb devices
List of devices attached
LGL34C2a13525 unauthorized

Now with correct drivers I get unauthorized, I need to click on the authentication pop up screen to allow the adb access. Make sure to check Always allow from this computer. (When you brick your phone, it will now automatically connect.)

Thanks so much for this! This seems to be the only thread anywhere that is working on this little phone. Keep up the good work folks. I am wondering if a working recovery could be copied into the phone with these ADB partition commands...maybe the recovery from a Verizon Optimus Zone 2 phone, I seem to have read somewhere that it is the same hardware with Verizon Firmware. ??? I am almost ready to go buy a Zone 2 to test for recovery, but money is short for the time being.
