Hi guys!

I am posting a guide to upgrade/downgrade to any newer/older versions of Android (if present).

If your phone is listed here use this guide! If your phone isn't listed here you can use UPPERCUT Software!

Currently Supported Phones:
LG K420DS
LG K420N
LG MS428
LG K425

PM me if you want your phone to be supported.

(1) Download LG Drivers from here.

(2) Download LG UP from here.

(3) Download the required files from here.

(1) LG K420DS : Link
(2) LG K420N : Link
(3) LG MS428 : Link
(4) LG K425 : Link

(4) Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\LG Electronics\LGUP\

(5) Create a new folder inside the "model" folder.

"8916" (K420DS & K420N)
"8909" (MS428 & K425)
(without the double quotes)

(6) Copy the dll file (from the zip you downloaded in step 3) to the folder you created in step 5.

(7) Run the ".reg" file which is provided in the zip file. Select "Yes" if you see a prompt and then select "Ok".

(8) Put your phone in download mode and connect it to your computer using USB.

(8) Open LG UP application in admin mode.

(9) Select the "Upgrade" option. Click in the blank space under "File Path". You will see three dots. Click on it. Select the KDZ file for your phone.

(10) Close LG UP.

(11) Open LG UP again in admin mode. Choose "Refurbish" option (if you want to completely wipe your data) or "Upgrade" option (if you don't want to completely wipe your data) . Select "Start". LG UP will start flashing your phone.

*** Don't disconnect your phone until the progress bar shows 100% ***

You have successfully flashed the KDZ.

    So can the 428 tmo variemt be downgraded? And if so is there a custom recovery available? As in should I use the metro twrp or the international twrp. Tmo sales rep said it has a Qualcomm 410 processor I believe. Sorry just wanna get this straight. Be nice to have another phone to develop roms for in my time. As I'm buying a g3 friday.
