Tools:
LG Updater

Click here for link

Steps to do before flashing:
1. Backup your data, I am not responsible if you lose your important data.
2. Makes sure your device have 50% remaining battery or more. Full charge is recommended as putting your phone into “Download Mode” doesn’t charge the device.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Flashing the KDZ:
1. Unzip the files in your preffered location.
2. Install B2CAppSetUp,wait for the installation to finish then quit the application after the installation.
3. Install LGUnitedMobileDriver and MSXML 4.0 SP3 Parser
4. Open the properties of the UpTestEX.exe and Windows Enabler.exe then enable compatibility mode and admin rights (Right click> Properties> Compatibility tab> Check the box “Run this program in compatibility mode for: Windows XP SP3”> also check the box that says “Run this program as an administrator.” Don’t forget to hit “OK.” (Don't forget to do Windows Enabler.exe too.

5. Double click Windows Enabler, it will go on your taskbar, left-click to enable. If it is enabled, it should look like this:

6. Open UpTestEX
7. Select “3GQCT” and “CS_EMERGENCY

8. Locate your .KDZ file.
9. Now put your phone in “Download Mode” (To do this: Turn your phone off completely, press and hold Vol Up button together with power button, don’t release until you see “Download Mode” on-screen.
10. Connect phone to the computer and wait for the drivers to install.
11. If you’re ready, click the “Normal web upgrade test.” Note: Don’t click the “Start Upgrade” option.
12. A popup window will show, just click “Upgrade Start.”

13. Choose “Different Country” and “(Your preffered language, mine is ENGLISH)” After you click OK, LG Updater will now open.

14. The update will now start.

15. Your phone will reboot after some time, don’t unplug the cable yet, the upgrade is not yet done.
16. When the upgrade is finished, just close the updater. Your phone is now Upgraded/Downgraded or Unbricked!

-----------------------------------------------------
If you encounter bootloop after the process:
Turn the phone off completely, press and hold Vol Down and Power Button at the same time, don't release until you see "Factory Reset," Press Power button twice to confirm.

It's the tool from this post. If I'm not getting this error, it'll be "Windows Explorer not working" error, there by crashing the tool itself. May be I try another system.

Make sure the LG updater is running and all drivers installed and try again.

I was getting that same error too!
But then I tried the whole procedure again on Windows 7 32BIT, and it worked!!!
So try on a 32bit OS.

Hope that helped.

Hi,

I'm having the exact same issue. I tried it with win8pro and xpPro(both x86) and got the same behaviour at every try:
After the update starts it took some havy load on CPU and HDD transfer for a few seconds while a cab file appears in the working directory. After that the CPU/HDD load reduces to 0 and the cab file disappears again. About half a minute later the "application not responding" error pops out.

I'm pretty frustrated right now. Can anyony help?

Make sure you followed step 4. Its very important. Set the uptestex and windowsenabler properties to "windows xp compatibility" and "run as administrator". Install lg drivers and msxml parser. I think reboot would be nice.

I didnt get any errors trying this guide on windows xp home, 7, and windows 8 pro (all 32bit). Try disabling your antivirus for a while.
