Unbricking your LG Optimus Regard
So while tinkering with my phone, the LG optimus Regard, I bricked it. Then I found a rom for the LG Motion MS-770 witch works with my phone, however after flashing this rom, my phone is now on MetroPCS. I need to know how to get my phone back on cricket (NO ROMS AVALIBLE FOR THE LG OPTIMUS REGARD, ANYWHERE) so how do I hack my carrier back to cricket.
Also does anyone know how I can change my Model number back to LW-770 as opposed to MS-770
Thanks in advance, please anyone help me as I am without a phone until someone replies.
Follow these instructions to Unbrick your LG Optimus Regard
Or switch your carrier back to cricket
For all those encountering similar issues, or those in need of the stock firmware for the LG Optimus regard (LW-770) use this website: http://csmg.lgmobile.com:9002/csmg/b...2.jsp?esn=xxxx
Where xxxx should be your IMEI, it will lead you to a text page with unclickable hyperlinks that you should copy and paste into your browser. I have not tried the global version. DO NOT CHANGE ESN TO IMEI
it is not neccisary and will lead you to a blank page. Use, UpTestEX_mod2_marwin.exe to convert the .cab file to .kdv and use KDZ_FW_UPD.exe to flash it. If you need those files, they come together in a .zip file titled KDZ_FW_UPD_EN a quick google search will return proper results. In order for the above steps to work, you have to put your Regard into Download mode (Full power down, then while powering up, hold Vol Up, Vol Down & Power).
Full credit for finding the rom goes to Vosetal, I spent all day crawling the csmg.lgmobile.com and could not for the life of me figure out how to search my ESN as it is entirely inaccessible, and no FTP access permitted.
Hope this guide helps you unbrick your phone
I will update the language and the linguistics of this guide when I havent been up all night.
