As of July 30th, T-Mobile and MetroPCS have released KDZ updates for the LG K7 . This is all official LG Firmware.

If anyone has firmware for any other model please PM to me.
USERS ARE IN NEED OF LG K7 AS330 KDZ If you have this model or know of KDZ file PLEASE PM me.

I have obtained the stock boot and recovery imgs for the AS330 from user maxmotos!
I have obtained the KDZ for the Walmart Family Mobile version of the K7 from user theseeker2654!
I have obtained an unofficial version of the AS330 firmware from lechicuong creation credit goes to tungkick!

Downloads and guide below.
*I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY LOSS OR GAIN AS A RESULT OF THIS GUIDE*

This method may cause FAILURE or HARDBRICK (as always with flashing firmware) Use at own risk.

LG Has made it harder for us to download KDZ's from their website. So now we have to glitch it out for KDZ to download.
TO INITIATE DOWNLOAD OF MIRRORED KDZ DO THIS
Click link. Refresh the page. Then your download should start after that.

If that does not work try pasting the link into this website.
Then rename the file to *.KDZ.
Or if you have Linux, you can copy the link and run wget command to download.

Download drivers & tools HERE
LG UP MIRROR

DRIVER MIRROR

Please DO NOT flash a KDZ that is not meant for your model. It may lead to a hardbrick. It may flash fine but will be irreversible.
Download KDZs here (Each file can be downloaded individually, don't click the top button that says download, it downloads ALL the KDZs in that folder. It's 23 GBs! Please try not to kill my servers by downloading unnecessary files!)
Mirrors for KDZs

I have both MetroPcs and t mobile. If you want you can try using LG Bridge to update the phone, basically does same thing but it's more user friendly and it always downloads right package. But to recover from brick I think LG UP only way to it.

i wanted to give the t mobile firmware a shot and i don't think it would work though any official tools, 1) i haven't got the update that t mobile has as far as i can tell(is it just a security patch? or a os update?) 2) i'm really hoping the flash will let me bypass the metro hotspot check, right now i can only use pdanet+ works great but i want proper hotspot past my 8GB. it's up to you i'm just asking if i can be posted, any help is good help dont want to ask for to much.

That does not seem safe at all. That sounds like you could brick your phone. You should never try firmwares for different models. If you want upgrade use correct model. MetroPcs is k7ms330.

yeah i know thats why i wanted to use twrp, i already have the version with the button combo and as long as i dont flash the recovery i wont have a issue with restoring, hardware wise they are the same and i've done the same with galaxy s3's and 4's between [email protected] and T-mobile also done this with some LG optimus F(and some number 90?) between boost and sprint so i know it's possible and as long as recovery is accessible it should be alright

Do you want boot and system? I can only give you a rooted and with xposed. I have twrp backups and that's it. I don't think there's a way to flash stock with twrp.

Yeah it would be really hard to get system image from kdz.

yeah i know that's why i was asking if you had one you had backed up before you logged into google, on another note no one else has posted "stock" recovery flashable zips and it would be helpful for people that dont have backups and have become soft bricked without having to re-root flash TWRP and unlock the bootloader.
