Post [ROM] ROM for recovery G2X under the NVFLASH

ROM for recovery G2X under the NVFLASH

This method necessary!
If the device is not loaded and not firmware in other ways! (If you downloaded the wrong firmware in the device)

I took the unpacked program files KDZ and added to them NVFlash and created BAT file!

Download ROM: http://www.mediafire.com/?wfokxjxi7rfoaey
Mirror: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=C5LBU3DS
Download APX driver: http://www.mediafire.com/?k559zgjlqkd5ted

Installation Instructions:
  1. Download both files
  2. Unpack it to the C drive to their respective folder
  3. Remove the battery
  4. Hold Vol Up/Down (and keep them held)
  5. Insert the USB cable
  6. Install APX driver from the your APX folder

    For windows 7(and vista? please confirm):
    • Open Device Manager in Windows and you should see "APX Device" listed with an error
    • Right click on the APX device
    • Select 'Update driver software'
    • Select 'Let me pick...'
    • Select 'Have disk'
    • Browse to directory you extracted the APX Driver
    • Select the *entire* 'APX Driver' folder
    • Accept any warnings, including the big red alert (you may need to disable UAC)
    • Now in Device Manager under 'USB Controllers' you should have an 'NVIDIA USB Boot-recovery driver for mobile devices'
    • If not, uninstall the driver, reboot, rinse and repeat
    • Unplug everything
  7. Hold Vol Up/Down (and keep them held)
  8. Insert USB cable
  9. open your ROM folder:
  10. Run Flash.bat file and wait for the process
  11. After the logo appears on the LG phone
  12. Unplug USB cable
  13. Insert the battery
  14. enjoy!

After that, I recommend to firmware device with help programms KDZ or LG Mobile Update

Can't wait to check this out when I get home later. Regarding the kdz file, what exactly were you able to unpack from it? I've been able to extract 2 files (a very large .wbd file and a .dll file) but I couldn't figure out how to unpack them further, specifically the .wdb file.

Can you post the DLL for the G2X so we can use the LG Utilities to unpack KDZ files for this device please. So far we have been unable to get the proper DLL that enables us to unpack these files. If you unpacked the KDZ you must have the DLL unless you used another method to extract the files from the KDZ. Please elaborate on how you accomplished this. Both phburks and I have been working on this and so far we have had no success.

It is for people that have mucked up their phones to the point where LG Updater and KDZ Flash are not possible. This can be caused by many issues including, but not limited to, people flashing the O2X baseband to a G2X device. This method is purported to flash the entire Gingerbread ROM at the lowest possible hardware level. Hopefully this method is legit, but nobody has confirmed they have done it yet with the exception of the OP. Yes it is similar to ODIN for the Samsung but operating at an even lower level. With the NVFlash capability Tegra2 devices are virtually unbrickable.

You described it right!
This method has helped resurrect my device!

Yes. It is almost as good as JTAG flashing the device. For Galaxy S devices using ODIN you still have to have the 'software download' mode working in the ROM and it is possible to brick a Galaxy S beyond the point of even getting this mode to be accessible leaving you the only way to fix the device through disassembling it and flashing via the JTAG pads. Using the NVFlash method you are flashing directly to the hardware through they Hynix flashing chip. I had another phone with a similar capability (I-Mobile i858 - Yuhua Touchstone device) and no matter how badly I F'd it up (I was developing custom roms for it) I had the similar low level flashing tool that could reflash the phone to stock so I could start over with a clean slate. If this method is legit, this is a big boon to the dev community for this device.

After trying to firmware device with program KDZ or LG Mobile Update in folder C: \ ... \ Aplication Data \ folder appears "LGMOBILEAX" which contains the firmware files!
That's All

So you got them after the LG Updater extracted the KDZ into its component files. phburks and I didn't get that far as we didn't want to connect our already updated devices to the updater. To get to the point you did where you could grab the individual files you would have had to click the start update button. Good work.

I have 7-zip on my computer but I am unable to open up the file I just downloaded. Can you put it in another format and upload to megaupload or mediafire please? I don't want to go through that Russian site again as I got an invalid download. Also, please post the baseband file as a separate download.

I downloaded the 7-zip file to the sdcard on my phone but I won't be home to try opening it for several hours because I'm at seaworld. Lol

Hopefully you guys can get this sorted out. Sounds promising so far.
