Default [Tutorial] KDZ can see your device? No Problem!

Ok so allot of people have been asking, if kdz can’t see my phone then how do I flash.
This is a simple yet effective solution that I have found.
This will work even if
• usb debugging is off
• You made a factory reset
• Device wont boot
Before I start I need to give thanks to @mircea89fzr for providing this tutorial

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2409308

Step 1
Head over to http://lg-phone-firmware.com/ and download a kdz image for your device

Step 2
Download LG_KDZ_FW-Update_OfflineFix.ZIP (attached) thanks to @mircea89fzr

Step 3
Run B2CAppSetup.exe inside the KDZ_FW_UPD_EN folder and make sure you install the drivers then close the program
(if you get program not responding undo changes you made in the next step and give it some time)

Step 4
Open notepad as Administrator(Go to windows menu, type notepad and right-click and run in Administrator mode)


Step 5
Open the hosts file (c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc)
And add this line 127.0.0.1 csmg.lgmobile.com
Then save and exit


Step 6
Go to windows menu, type cmd and right-click and run in Administrator mode.
Drag auto.vbs over command prompt and hit enter.


Step 7
Click OK until you get this


Step 8
Make sure Type is set to 3GQCT and phone mode to DIAG. Select your KDZ file and click Normal web upgrade test.

Step 9
Click on Upgrade Start.


Step 10
Click on Clear phone Software update Registry and then click OK.


Step 11
You upgrade will start and then give you this message


Step 12
Disconnect the usb cable
Remove your battery
Reinsert your battery
Plug in the cable
Power on
Then Click restart

Step 13
Your Device will be detected for a split second and the flash will continue.
If it gives you the pop up again repeat step 12

Step 14
Flash may get stuck at 4% of update
Repeat step 12

Step 15
Remove the line in the host file

Step 16
All done

My apologies I should have made it more clear this is not a guide to flashing a kdz image as it was already discussed in this thread.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2409308

this is a guide to flashing the kdz if your computer does not see your phone. It is more about step 11 on wards.
my apologies if I am offending the forum rules but I did give proper thanks and I have mentioned mircea89fzr so that he can see that I created this thread and message me if it is a problem.

the reason I posted this is because a lot of people have asked me how you flash when your device is not detected. referring them to this single post http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...1&postcount=23 does not help people as it does not explain how to get to that point. the user would then have to page back to find the tutorial. I made this guide so that they can see step by step in one post.

I will have no problem removing the post if mircea89fzr requests but I would make a suggestion to include steps 11 on wards as an addon to the original post.
