learned something new, thanks
KDZ-ing of LG's phones of late seem to be not as 'thorough' as previous, it used to be the be all and end all; or maybe i didnt mangle my phone bad enough
has he tried upgrading via LG's update tool instead?
he may need to KDZ an older version first (if available) so LG tool can sense an upgrade is necessary, and hopefully, it is intelligent enough to repartition if one is necessary.
also, LG's update tool has in-built recovery/repair option, not sure how that works though, worth to explore?
