Flashing stock ROM on LG L Fino

Quote:

Since the device is pretty new and there is no other such guide for the Fino I decided to make one.
Flashing stock firmware on LG devices is universal (for the most part) so this guide will be pretty straight up.
This guide should be compatible with both the Dual Sim Fino and the regular one and all variants between them N/F/G etc.
I will try to make this as noob friendly as possible.

__________________
Flashing a stock ROM:
  • Can unbrick the device (only if softbricked)
  • Will remove root
  • Can Wipe user data
  • Can brick device (If done incorrectly)
__________________
STEPS:


STEP 1: Download and Install the LG DRIVER from here.
You might want to restart your computer after driver installation.

STEP 2: Download LG FLASH TOOL 2014 from here and extract it IN a NEW folder somewhere.

STEP 3: Download a KDZ firmware file from here
Quote:

BE SURE YOU ARE DOWNLOADING THE RIGHT FIRMWARE FOR YOUR DEVICE (D290N, D295 and so on) OTHERWISE YOUR DEVICE MIGHT BECOME A HARD BRICK!!! LOOK FOR THE DEVICE MODEL BEHIND THE BATTERY!

STEP 4: Extract the FIRMWARE.KDZ file IN the same folder as the LG FLASHTOOL 2014.

STEP 5: Enter DOWNLOAD MODE on the device. You can do that by connecting a USB cable to the computer and then pressing and holding the VOLUME UP button while inserting the USB in to the phone.

STEP 6: Start LGFlashTool2014.exe. You should have something like this open:
image1

STEP 7: In type ALLWAYS choose CDMA.

STEP 8: IN KDZ browse to the KDZ file you extracted earlier and select it.

STEP 9: Select Normal or CSE Flash
Quote:

Normal Flash: Flash the ROM on top of the current one ( Good for updating firmware)
CSE Flash: Flash the ROM after WIPING EVERYTHING. (Good if testing new ROM or restoring a brick)

STEP 10: After selecting either you will be transferred to another screen with data on it. Don't edit anything and just click START

STEP 11: After that you will be yet again transferred to another screen like this:
image2

Dont change or tick anything and just click OK

STEO 12: After that the process of FLASHING will begin.
Quote:

THIS PROCESS CAN'T BE STOPPED SO BE SURE YOU HAVE EVERYTHING NEEDED TO WAIT FOR 5-20 MINUTES FOR IT TO COMPLETE.
DO NOT UNPLUG THE DEVICE UNTIL IT HAS FULLY BOOTED!

If you get an error saying something about failed downloads and whatnot DO NOT CLICK ON ANYTHING! and wait about 15 minutes. The program might just display these errors but the process will continue.
Do not worry if the program says disconnected or crashes at the end of the procedure. This is normal

STEP 13: Enjoy your reflashed device

Does anyone experimented issues installing drivers? I've installed several versions and it still not detecting/recognizing the device and searching for drivers in windows update. (Windows7, D290n).

SOLVED: After disabling windows update, uninstalling every single driver version for the device, unplugging network connection and reinstalling drivers (4.0.3) it worked. Thanks and hope help if it is your case.

You can start over... But this time check that the USB connection is stable and the drivers are all updated

I have LG L Fino D295. I cannot enter to Download Mode as there is error message "error boot certification verify" and then the device goes black. By removing the battery, put it back and press power button the phone goes normally. Any solution for cannot entering the Download Mode?
I found this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2582142 but I couldn't find the files needed (sbl1.img, aboot.img, rpm.img, tz.img) which I assume the stock files for LG Fino L D295. And not really sure this will help me to enter the Download Mode.

Just as background: when I update the firmware via OTA, the system says that my phone is suspected to be rooted. since then my camera is not working. Clear cache and data didn't help.

Any suggestion would be appreciated.
