Default How to Update Lg Fathom to v7

Ok so lg released VS750ZV7_04 update awhile ago but us lg fathom users couldn't up date cause there is an error in their software
here is a guide on updating you Fathom

First I ran the lg software update tool from lg to make it go to the downloading black screen -- you can get the software too from here http://www.lg.com/us/mobile-phones/v...are-update.jsp --

extraced LG-Utils-0.4.2.zip to C:\

made a folder called "VS750" in C:\

Got the cad file from here http://csmg.lgmobile.com:9002/swdata....P58006.R5.cab

renamed the cab file to "VS750ZV7_04.cab" than put it into the "VS750" folder

next I right clicked on "KP500-Utils-EN.exe" and changed the compatibility to winxpsp2

and ran it as admin

I than picked "J"

and than put in "VS750" for the model

than I put in "C:\VS750\VS750Zv7_04.cab" when it asked for the cab file

than I put in "VS750ZV7_04" for the version.

and it worked here is a picture of what the update looks like now

That's very cool.

Once you have v7 installed, could you possibly dump the OS for me? I would love a copy of the OEM and SYS for my GW825.

Hmm, well I can't help you there.

da_reeseboy posted dumps of v4 and v5. Perhaps he can help get you going.

Lol this explains why both of you asked about dumping the rom.

@bhast2: I shot you back a pm.

@trueg: I'm trying to snag a usb monitoring program so I can monitor the data before I upgrade... I haven't found anything solid yet.
