Hmmm...can I even remember?? My brain is still swimming in downloads and error messages!
I had tried the offline updater earlier, but the "Automatic Offline Procedure.vbs" file never would load, I kept getting an error on line 25. I downloaded it all again from other links, and this time I thought it would go through but I kept getting an error at line 70 something.
I finally read "instruction.docx" (the steps that the vbs file was going to have me follow) lol
I turned the windows enabler to the ON position.
I also disabled my LG modem first as I had read that on the .pdf file I posted earlier and it had allowed me to get Wind on there.
I disabled my firewall and anti virus temporarily also.
I opened the UpTestEX_mod2_marwin.exe set it to "3GQCT" and "EMERGENCY" and chose the V21y kdz
I hit "Normal web upgrade test"
Then start upgrade or something and the LG updater tool opened, it found my phone, I think I pressed Start upgrade or whatever again, waited, held my breath too long, passed out, woke up VOILA! DONE!
That is a VERY rough translation of what I did, I have had so many trial and error attempts and variations of settings, files etc, that I don't know what really finally worked! But thank you for your encouragement last night, because I was really about to give up for good (thus the last ditch "when all else fails ASK for help" post) and throw not only my hands up, but the phone across the room!
Now I am finally getting around to re loading my apps and all my settings, ringtones, etc etc etc. I don't know if I now love or hate my G2x!
Thanks to everyone for their replies! And everyone else who posts here and helps so many novices like me!
