SmartFlash Tool completly erases device memory during flashing.
Phone will make Factory Reset at first boot after flashing!
You can upgrade and downgrade. You can downgrade from V20N too!

This also will remove phone lock if you forget unlock code or pattern. (phone lock, NOT simlock or network lock...)

This method doesn't need internet connection.
If you want to flash an LG P970H download correct ROM from link below.

With this solution you can unbrick LG Optimus Black P970.
It fixes bootloop, "ERROR LG Security Team", and BSOD - blue screen with green writings (untested).

Only requirement is ability to enter in to S/W Update mode and not broken hardware.

Tested on: Windows 7 Ultimate x86, x64 and Windows XP Pro SP3.

5) choose COM port.
6) choose LGE Mobile USB Serial Port in Communication Driver

It takes about 3 mins to flash.

After successfully flashing, phone will reboot and make Factory Reset.
And that's all!

Now your phone should be unbricked and working.


I will not take any responsibility if something goes wrong when you trying this solution. For me and many others it worked well.

To add, it is a fast flasher compared to RDTT.

AFAIK it's the safest & quickiest solution for flashing Black.
Now we only need newest firwares in bin/fls format, eg. V20N. Didn't find that yet.

Yeah, I used this one when I had BSOD way back. And I hope there'd be more. What I'd like to know is are they extracted or came from source? The method how to extract is interesting if they are.

Thumbs down
be careful using this i have a 3 day old brand new bricked paper weight using this software, my optimus black still boots on desktop but not responsive with blinking button light, cant enter s/w mode or desktop, even the pc cannot detect it. i should have had contented with it just because i wanted that led notification to work.

im back my old sony x8, good thing this phone can enter recovery very easily unlike that LG phone, im not gonna buy LG anymore.
