    Someone has stated they had some success on that type of phone. Just please backup anything you flash before flashing it so you can start over and restore your phone at anytime. I do not have a G8X so I can't tell you anything in particulars but I can help with programming phone.

    you need to type the full path to the files. it might work without the full path if they are in the same folder as lgup but I don't use flasher. null means it can't find the file, you should move all the files to a folder on your c: drive and name it something simple like - new - so you can...

    That is correct. The correct driver is installed for download mode then. Although Download mode will be more picky as to requiring the exact firmware KDZ for your phone. You should be able to use LGUP, and if you use the command line tool you put COM4. I put LGUP_CMD in my c:\ folder because...

Sprint...
