English please, I try the translation as of the following:

The problem I think is not mine to sell and I want to go back to stock if there is more than a bug by which customer can complain!

Just go to Settings >> Backup & reset >> Network settings reset >> reset settings

Then restart and probably you have to update APN settings.

still not working!

Hello, the problem related with the data connection has been resolved?
Yes its resolved..

---------- Post added at 04:34 PM ---------- Previous post was at 04:12 PM ----------

Now you can go back to stock ZVB without being afraid of losing data or signals... All you have to do after Installing MellowMallow ROM is Upgrade with Given TOT file.. You will get stock ZVB with signals and Data Working :)

Alright, far too many people are screwing their phones up. I'll write a guide.

I'll start by saying that if you're not familiar with working within command prompts, you probably shouldn't be doing this. It's not a reflection on you, personally, it's just that you really, seriously, can turn your phone into a permanent, expensive paper weight.

Ok, here we go:
• Step 1: Determine what kind of phone you have. GSM / Global? LTE? Honestly, if you can't answer this with certainty, stop here. You really, really shouldn't be doing this.

• Step 2: Install the LGUP files from the original post. I read that one should install the file "LGUP_8994_DLL_Ver_0_0_3_23.msi" first, then the file "LGUP_Store_Frame_Ver_1_14_3.msi" I can't confirm if it makes a difference, but I did as I read, and it worked fine.

• Step 3: Install the LG drivers
Download the file from the original post
Simply double-click the "LGMobileDriver_WHQL_Ver_4.0.4.exe" file.​

• Step 4: Based on the answer to the question in step one, download the appropriate ROM from the link in the original post.
Extract the ROM. (It's currently packaged as a .7z file. If you don't know how to extract a .7z, then stop here. You probably shouldn't be doing this.
End result, is that you should have the file "MellowMallow_LS991ZVB_v1.01_Global.img" (Global), or "MellowMallow_LS991ZVB_v1.01.img" (LTE)​

• Step 5: Put the ROM on the phone at the ROOT of the internal SD card:
Plug your phone into your PC with the USB.
Ensure you are in "MTP" mode. If a window pops up on your phone, tap "Allow". If not, swipe down on the phone to bring up the notifications menu. You should see a notification titled "USB connected". Tap that notification, then tap "Media Device (MTP)"
Open your File Explorer up on your computer. Depending on your Operating System (OS), you should see "G4" as one of the "Devices and Drives". Double click that.
The root folder should be listed as "Internal Storage". Double click that.
Copy the file to your phone. File only, no parent folder.​

• Step 6: Download the ZVB TOT file from the original post.
It's another .7z. Extract it.​

• Step 7: Boot your G4 into "Download Mode"
Pull the phone out of the case.
Pull the back cover off the phone.
Power off the phone normally.
Hold the button for "Volume Up" and plug the USB cable from your PC into your phone while holding the button.
Keep holding when you see "Download Mode" (or whatever it says, I forgot)
Let go of the button when it says something along the lines of "Downloading, don't turn your phone off."​

• Step 8: Start up the LGUP application on your PC.
It may say something like "Handset not detected". Give it a moment, then just click "OK"
It should bring up an entry in a field with your phone and something like "COMxx" (xx will be a number)
If not, retry this step. I read somewhere that if it still doesn't detect, don't push any buttons. Don't turn the phone off, just pull the battery, put it back in, and let it boot back up.​

• Step 9: Ok, pay attention. This is where you will end up with an expensive paper weight if you screw up. Seriously, it's not too late to back out. Just restart the phone, and walk away clean.
In the LGUP application, ensure the radio button on the bottom is set to "Update".
In the LGUP application, navigate to the folder where you have the extracted .img file by populating the "File" field. Select the .img file, hit OK.
OK... you can still walk away. Just shut it all down, and restart.​

• Step 10: Still here?
Ok, hold the phone in front of your PC so you can see both.
Click "Update" (or "run" - I can't remember what it exactly said...)
You'll see a counter on your PC. When it hits 9%, quickly glance at your phone.
Phone screen should say "COMxx" (xx will be a number)
When you see that, pull the USB cord from the phone. Be quick. You don't have much time. Mess this up, and you're screwed.
Leave the phone alone. Set it down. It should still be in download mode. Careful not to knock the battery out. Not sure what that would do.
Close the LGUP application. It will give you a warning, just do what you have to do to shut that app down.​

• Step 11: Hard part's over.
Download and extract LG_root.zip from the original post.
Extract everything to your PC.
Connect your phone again.
Double click on "ports.bat" in the extracted "LG_root" folder
The batch file will give you a bit of info. One of the lines listed will look similar to LGDIAG. It may have some more letters / numbers on it.
Next to that line will be a port number. Remember it, or leave the window open. Pressing any key will close that window. If you do that, just run the .bat again. No biggie.​

• Step 12: Running the command
On your PC, you should still be in the extracted "LG_root" folder.
Hover your mouse over a blank space in the File Exlplorer. Hold the "Shift" key, and right-click a blank space.
Shift + right click gives you an additional menu option "Open command window here". Click that.
Type "Send_Command.exe \\.\COMxx" (Replace xx with the number you got from step 11) Press enter.
You should see a "#"
In the original post, under the download section for your specific ROM (Remember, Global or LTE), there is a bit of code. copy all of it. Right click the command prompt window, and select "Paste" and hit "enter"
Wait. Approx 2 mins later, you will be presented with another "#"
Type "Leave" and press enter.
Pull the battery from your phone. Unplug it from USB. Put it all back together. Power it on. Voila.​

    THE FOLLOWING METHOD OF ENABLING SEND_COMMAND IS VERY DANGEROUS. ONE SECOND TOO LATE IN PULLING THE CORD AND YOU WILL HARD BRICK YOUR DEVICE. ( @Agimax and I have personally bricked one each already using this method)
    1. Copy ROM image to the root directory of your INTERNAL storage.
    2. Carefully open Send_Command port:
      • Download & Install the LG Drivers & LG Up
      • Download LG_Root.zip.
      • Download ZVB TOT
      • Run LG UP with the ZVB TOT file
      • Once it gets to 9% on your PC (not on your phone)(and you see a green COM# on your phone screen) -[Takes 20-30 seconds at most], disconnect the phone and close LG UP. **If you f-up this step YOU WILL have a HARD BRICK**
      • Download and extract LG_root.zip
      • Connect your phone again and run ports.bat
      • Now check which COM# for LGDIAG port
    3. Send_Command.exe \\.\COMxx
    4. Command to flash is listed next to the download near the end of this post.
    5. After you issue the command with Send_Command.exe, it should pause for about 2 minutes then go back to #.
    6. Type LEAVE then pull battery when complete.

    Regarding the GLOBAL version: If you are a GSM/Global user, please flash that version. For now, they are not a unified build. It does not work properly for Sprint/CDMA users. If you have Sprint & want to try it, go ahead, but it will probably be really buggy.

    That is good for you. Global should work for you. I've just been having issues with uploads today. I've had to build 4 versions of this ROM today. Zipping and uploading almost 20GB takes a long time and a lot of resources. The GSM version will be published, all I ask is to please have patience.
    Here's the Global version link. Ill update the OP later.
