God, I hate Windows. There's no Mac-native or Linux-native programs that can do this, are there?
At this point there was nothing to right click on, which I assume means that when I uninstalled the drivers through the "Uninstall Programs" control panel it left some files behind that were mucking up the process. So I went ahead and reinstalled the driver's from LG's, website, reconnected my phone to get the "Sooner Single" to show up, then right clicked on it, chose uninstall and make sure Delete was selected.
Then I went in the Uninstall control panel to make sure everything was deleted. Then I deleted anything that looked like it was owned by LG under C:\Program Files, C:\ProgramData and C:\Windows\System32\Drivers.
Then I installed your drivers, as linked in the first post and plugged my phone back in. And it showed back up as the "Sooner Single" interface, but had a "Device Cannot Start" error on it... Which I'm guessing
means that driver was actually in your package. Right clicked, uninstall, make sure I check Delete... Unplug and replug my phone back in. This time I get an "Android USB Device" that the system was unable to find a driver for.
So I followed your directions.... Update Driver, Search my computer, etc. There appears to be both an "LG Electronics, Inc" entry and an "LG Electronics Inc" (without the comma) entry. One of them has two Serial Port drivers, and two NMEA GPS Port drivers, the other has three of each. I've at this point tried all five of the Serial Port drivers.
The ones from the group of three (I can't remember if that's the one with the comma or without) required me to reboot my computer when I installed them and then, after the reboot, had a "Device cannot start" on them. The other two managed to start, but when I hit the "Connect" button in the CDMA Workshop it says "Failed to open COMx"... I tried switching around between COM1, COM3, COM5 (making sure to always have the same port selected in both the device manager and the CDMA Workshop)... I tried messing with the baud rate setting, again matching them in both locations.
I'm doing all of this on two machines, btw... An installation of Windows 7 64 bit running under Parallels Desktop on my Mac, and an install of Windows 7 32 bit running on a friend's computer with no virtualization. Getting identical results on both. Well, I did discover that my friend's computer freezes up mid-POST if my phone is plugged into its USB port while it's rebooting, which was just a little bit of extra frustration to deal with.
Any more hints?
I'd really like to get this working... I've had data outages of several hours almost every day for 2-3 weeks now, usually during prime time usage hours (i.e. around noon, and around 4pm to 7-8pm.) Would love anything that would make the stop or even lessen it.
