I have a LG GT540 phone that had Android 1.6 on it.
I tried to upgrade it to Android 2.1 with the official program (I downloaded from the official web page) but it failed. :/
It started the upgrade but on 4% it stopped and now I can't use my phone. When I turned it on it has a blue background and it says Emergency mode.

Can someone please help me getting this phone fixed?

I had this EXACT problem.
What to do:
Disable LG Android modem drivers
Download KDZ_Updater (Google it)
Download KDZ (Google Europe open GT540 KDZ)
Flash it.
It should work
If you need anymore help, just ask!

Thanks for the answer, but can you please explain me a little detailed what I need to do.
I downloaded everything, now? :)

Right... here we go...
Open the kdz folder and open the instructions text file. Then follow them

Open the KDZ updater (right click, run as administrator if in Windows 7)

Open windows enabler (right click, run as administrator if in Windows 7) & click on its icon in the taskbar (bottom right)

Click on all the disabled boxes in kdz updater. And select 3Q whatever in one box and EMERGENCY in the other

Click open and select the kdz

Click start updating

Wait until it says update finished and your phone should boot 2.1

Good luck!

I have WinXP, SP3 - 32bit I think..what's the difference?

Sometimes software doesn't work properly on some versions, like KDZ Updater didn't work for me on XP SP3, but LG Utlis did...
But in W7 Starter it was the other way around.
To find out your version, right click on My Computer and Click Properties. Everything is there. Don't post a picture though, as it contains stuff like a serial number...

Help at last?

I get the same error with LG Utilis too. It get's till 4% and it stops. It says that the phone is disconnected....

Are you plugging the phone into a USB drive in the BACK of your computer (USB 2.0), as this may solve the problem.
Have you also installed the correct drivers?
Try this: Driver set 1
And how to use them Instructions
Some files in here may be useful also.
And some help from another topic here
