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?

Yep update tool was tried, recovery wouldn't work either. He wound up exchanging the phone anyways

Question for Sprint

Question, on the Sprint version of this phone, would the type be CDMA?

Also, do you think anything else would be different?

*edit* Also, when I try to download the KDZ file, it is instead a .CAB file that has an .wdb, .wdh, and a .dll file inside.

Am I supposed to rename it? convert it?

Thanks!

I can not get it to download the KDZ file either. Is there anyway to post a link for a direct download?

This should not be used for the Sprint or AT&T variants, please see instructions for restoring with LGNPST in the respective forums as we have .tot files for both AT&T and Sprint.

Thank you. I have seen that but I do not know how to flash the TOT file. I have downloaded that, but do not know how to flash it.

I wouldn't work for me until I added 1 more step
First of all, thanks again to the poster and xda in general...y'all freakin rule.

I couldn't get this to work for the longest time, though I knew that these valuable instructions were the key to fixing my device.

The difference between total failure and absolute success for me was making sure to run "msxml.msi" in the KDZ updater before running "KDZ_FW_UPD.exe"

If you're stuck, try that!!!

Thanks once again for helping me fix my device!

There's plenty of tutorials for flashing .TOT files in LGNPST, try JHoopes' thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2013067

The same instructions are also found in carret's guide: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2006946

All you had to do was actually look.
