UPPERCUT allows LGUP to instantly work with a ton of different LG models. No more hunting around for specific model files or being stuck without your model being detected. Simply install LGUP. Double-click the UPPERCUT.exe and LGUP will open and detect your device.
What's LGUP? LGUP is LG's internal Windows-only tool for flashing LG devices with stock firmware in KDZ, DZ and TOT formats. Previously extra installers and unique settings were needed for each model. Many less popular devices didn't have the files needed to work with their device.Well with UPPERCUT just double-click the EXE and LGUP will open and recognize your device.
1. Windows computer or virtual machine.
2. LG's Windows USB drivers installed and working.
3. LGUP 1.14 installed
4. LG device must show in Windows Device Manager under "Ports" as a LG Serial COM port.
5. KDZ, DZ or TOT file for your device.
1. With all requirements above met... download and unzip UPPERCUT.
2. Double-click the UPPERCUT.exe every time you want to use LGUP. It's that simple.

When LGUP works for your model please post it in the thread! List:
your model (H850, D852, F600L etc..)
the software build you were on before flashing in LGUP (10A, 22C, 30B etc..)
the KDZ or TOT name you flashed using LGUP (H91810i_00_1202.kdz etc..)
126.96.36.199 - Supports LG devices using a MSM 8996/8994/8992/8976/8952/8939/8937/8916/8909/8226 chipset. Street Fighter 2 SFX.
Let me know which combos do/dont work for you... UPPERCUT version, LGUP version, Current phone software version and KDZ/TOT software version and if the KDZ/TOT is custom or official.
G4, G5, G6, V10, V20, Flex 2, G Pad X, K10 and many more!
Q: Why isn't this working?
A: UPPERCUT requires LGUP 1.14 (not 1.11) installed in its default location prior to running.
Q: Why isn't anything happening when I press the boxing glove picture in this thread?
A: Really? ...
Q: What is this?
A: This is the simplest way to make LGUP work with your LG device.
Q: Refurbish option in LGUP doesn't work, what now?
A: Boot into stock recovery after the flash finishes and perform a factory reset. This is the same outcome as if Refurbish was selected.
Q: Why does this TOT file keep failing?
A: In most cases you're either trying to downgrade and it has been blocked by your phones download mode (not anti-rollback fuse.. that is different)... OR you are trying to use a custom-made TOT file which is not official or signed by LG. Flash an official KDZ instead. Do not ask for KDZs in this thread.. not the place.
Q: Where can I find a KDZ for my phone?
A: This is not a KDZ thread. Take the KDZ questions elsewhere.
Q: Why is my anti-virus scanner flagging this?
A: It's a false positive. Scanners like Kaspersky know better and don't flag the app but some others do. See post #59 for more info.
Q: Why is my device's model not detected in LGUP?
A: Make sure your devices chipset is supported by UPPERCUT. All models and software variants may not be supported even though chipset is listed.
If using a confirmed working device with UPPERCUT but your device is still not detected in LGUP you may have a "corrupted" misc partition...
as a last resort it has been confirmed in post #70 that wiping misc then booting into download mode allows the device to be detected with UPPERCUT + LGUP 1.14. This may not always work. And without root you cannot do this.
