Latest Version of LG Mobile Update prevents uses from updating firmware from kdz files.
As LG Tools relay on lg webserver to provide application updates and firmware updates it's not possible to just use the old version as it force fully update it self.
I used network sniffer(Wireshark) to sniff all the traffic between application and LG Webserver i tracked the important urls and the data coming from LG Webserver. I created all the files with same names and with data from LG Webserver. I changes the LG Mobile Application from 18.104.22.168 to 22.214.171.124. Rest of the files has same data as LG.
1) Download http://smallsrv.com/
3) Go to Settings
4) Go to HTTP Settings
5) Change Port to 9002
6) Extract the Content of Attached Zip file into C:\shttps\www
7) Edit C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\host in notepad and add the following Line
8) Enjoy Flashing firmware as usual
This method has lot of advantage
-LG Is watching everything when you run firmware update with KDZ Method lg is logging everything you mobile No, SN No, OLD Firmware, New Firmware etc..
