I have big problem with my LG L5 E610 - I've rooted it with method shown above and everything went fine, it was rooted successfully but today I've downloaded some font changer from google store (can't remember the name of app, was that one with big green "A" letter), then changed font into one that looked nice for me. After that, Ive decided to return to previous, original one, but I couldnt find any "restore defaults" option in app, so I've just entered system/fonts and then taped to install one of the fonts provided. My phone rebooted, and since then it is stucked after LG logo, on my provider logo.

I was able to find some info's already, that it could be a fastboot problem, tried to flash stock soft with KDZ, but KDZ says that 'no phone was connected', and when I press -vol and plug it without battery to PC, I have black screen with code on it stopped in a:

fastboot mode started
-- reset --
-- portchange --
-- reset --
-- portchange --
--  fastboot: processing commands --

Can someone help me with that?

I'm in the same situation as you! You could solve?

I have CM 10 and I wanted to upgrade to CM 10.1.
Thing is, when I try to update my phone to v20d, I am getting a wParam = 100, lParam = 500 on the KDZ Updater.

Tried many things already, but can't seem to get past this error and can't upgrade to jelly bean, so I can put on the CM 10.1.
I am running KDZ Updater as administrator, installed the .msi file that comes with it, plugged the phone on another usb port, have all the drivers enabled, the phone is in download mode, I have selected both EMERGENCY and DIAG as PhoneMode on KDZ Updater etc. etc. etc.

I have ran out of options :/

What does this error lParam 500 stands for? Anyone got an idea?

EDIT: Now changing USB ports, I got a different error, but an error nonetheless... now it's showing me wParam 100, LParam 4010...

Try it, if it doesn't boot, u can always go back to download mode and reflash v10:rolleyes:

Yeah, just reflashing v10 at this very moment.
Gonna try install v20 baseband directly through cmw and then cm10.1.

For this I should just load the .zip files on the internal memory, open cmw and hit install from zip file, right?

Tried installing CM10.1 after installing the v20 baseband on v10 room, but now I get stuck on the animated logo from CyanogenMod...
Tried to enter the hard reset, tried many different combination of buttons, but none work. Can only enter CMW.

I did wipe everything, cache, delvik and data.

You need to format system and another folder, forgot which one. Format all except sdcard and data. It's in CWM somewhere, you'll find it.

In recovery, mounts and storage -> format /data and /data/media..
Then flash again. Don't forget to wipe.

    [GUIDE] Flash Stock Firmware

    I am not sure if this has been posted before here.
    But I am posting, do comment if you find it helpful.

    Credit goes to the website: hackmyandroid.com


    1. Download LG Optimus l5 USB Driver for Windows | Mac.

    2. Download official LG Optimus l5 stock firmware from this page. The file would be a .kdz file. Download the appropriate firmware according to your network provider and country.

    3. Download KDZ updater and install it on your computer.

    4. The zip file has a Microsoft XML parser, make sure you run it as an administrator and restart your PC. This will solve the wparam 100 and lparam 6 issue mentioned in a comment below.

    5. The next step is to put your phone into emergency mode. To do this, remove the battery of your phone and re-insert it (don’t turn it on). Press and hold Volume Up button and Volume Down button. While you are pressing the two buttons, press the Power button. So now, you must be pressing all three buttons together.

    6. Your phone will boot into emergency mode and you should see a yellow screen with Emergency mode written on it.
    Pick up the USB Cable and connect your phone to the computer via the USB Cable.

    7. Pick up the USB Cable and connect your phone to the computer via the USB Cable.

    8. Run KDZ updater as Administrator.

    9. Choose the following options in KDZ Updater: Type: 3GQCT Phone Mode: DIAG and KDZ file is the one you downloaded in step 3. See the image below,


    10. Re-check with the image above and ensure that you have the appropriate settings on the KDZ updater.

    11. click on “Launch Software Update” button.

    12. This process is usually long. It take quite a long time for the firmware to be flashed on your phone.

    13. If everything goes well, you will see “Finished” written in the log screen and your phone will change to switched off mode from Emergency mode.

    14. The next time you turn it on, your phone will take a lot of time to reboot. Stay Cool! its normal.
