infinite bootloop freeze and crush rebooting for ever

Maybe I hard bricked mine:

Flashed with uppercut in download mode but with every KDZ file in UPGRADE mode I tried , after the second lg logo with sound of wellcome, it freeze and reboot over and over, it seems that crushes in infinite bootloop.


Is this hard bricked?
It won't pass the step cannot boot in OS

I changed the battery and repeat the same operation with H85030a_00_OPEN_EU.....kdz over three times, then leave it in loop reeboot for almost one night under fast recharge original cable and power. After one hundred of rebbots it works fine thanks to UPPERCUT.

I install updercut but cant flash LG G6 H873g version it was install sucessfully few month ago ..i was currently on LG G6vH873i version..

and also i have dump how can i reflash dump on my phone using lgup ???:confused:
 
Is there any way to flash an LGK50 (LM-K500um) from boost mobile? Mt6752 cpu with Android 9. I have not been able to get it to work at least on Windows 7. I just finished upgrading to Windows 10. I'm not sure if that'll make any difference. Basically I need to try and wipe the storage partition that contains the data for a three-letter abbreviation beginning with F and ending in P. Normally with a mediatek device I could use SP flash tool and be done in a jiffy, however there are several factors which do not allow for SP flash tool to work, for example the scatter file is not written in the proper form.

Also when using uppercut with LG up, I get a .dll error. Saying the device does not match. I followed the instructions in the op from a fresh install of Windows 10. I haven't done much else because I just got this up and running. Pretty much what I need to do, and I'm going to try and say this without getting myself in trouble, I need to bypass the three letter abbreviation that begins with the letter f and ends with the letter p. So I need to be able to flash every file inside of the stock kdz firmware.

I wanted to upgrade my lg k10 m250 with lgup 1.14 on Windows 10, but I have gotten the error .
This application has informed me to install the version 1.16 or higher.
Can you help me?

I actually believe the reason why we can't is because your device probably like mine, does not have any kind of fastboot on it whatsoever. And given the fact my LG came from boost Mobile you can pretty much put money on the fact they didn't care whether download mode functioned properly anymore. so far I have yet to find a single way to be able to flash anything to this device stock or not.

I have used this application (lgup 1.14) with my smartphone LG BUT on Windows 7 .
I have upgrated my Android ( .KDZ file ) and my phone worked properly.
Unfortunately, I cannot do it on Win 10 now.

Maybe, somebody has a working version LGUP 1.16 or higher for Win 10 :confused: .

I don't know if anybody really can. At least it's out of my reach of knowledgeability. If I'm not mistaken I might have something to do with the way LG gives permissions to certain parts of the device in order to allow firmware to be flashed. Anytime I try to use a tool that's based off of Linux, all I get are permission denials. This could be something they set up in the last kernel update in April when they patched LAF because it was exploitable this way. Of course that's all just skepticism because I don't know what's going on . But if I had to guess that would be my answer.

Doesn't the OTA update work? I have stayed using android 7.0 v10o as some said 8.0 might eat more battery...
LGup 1.14 not working with win10? Good to know...

i have tried the steps but my lg g600lr is stuck and uppercut is requesting for dll

Uppercut should just extract an oldish dll to its place and an exe file that might be used.
(and then after LGUP is done removes them without any good reason whatsoever...)
That oldie might not work with your device.

Try the dll that comes with LGUP v1.16. See my post above. It has the installer too.
And if that fails too, extract the dll from the kdz file. It's always the right one.

I have installed LGUP_Lab_Frame_Ver_1_16_0_3.msi from your reference above. But after this I cannot run LGUP on my Win10 :( .

LGUP Frame version is lower than v1.16. Please install v1.16 or higher.

Okay, it seems that the common dll is now asking for a newer version of LGUP. In our case (I have m250 too) it happened after the first oreo version. Dll version 1.0.36.10 works with LGUP 1.14, newer 1.0.38.0 doesn't...
I tested the v.1.16 in win10 64bit. Worked okay - at least dumping did. v.1.14 probably works too - if the dll, that is, the firmware is older.
If you cannot get it working, maybe you could use an older dll with that newer oreo??
M250n20b_00_OPEN_EU_OP_0813.kdz <-- v1.0.36.10
M250n20d_00_OPEN_EU_OP_1031.kdz <-- v1.0.38.0
M250n20e_00_OPEN_EU_OP_1217.kdz <-- v1.0.38.0

:fingers-crossed:

I have LGUP_Common.dll in my C:\Program Files (x86)\LG Electronics\LGUP\model\Common directory after installed.
It was created 06.08 (august).2020 and its version is 1.0.40.2
My Window 10 Home is also 64 bit.

The 1.0.40.2 is the one that came with that LGUP 1.16 installer. Yep, that worked too.
What is says when it doesn't work? Where it stops?
Maybe you should reinstall the drivers?

    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.


    Information:
    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.

    Requirements:
    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.

    How-to:
    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.
    Ldo2KEF.png


    Downloads:
    UPPERCUT | LGUP | LG G5 Files | LG USB Drivers

    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..)


    Versions:
    1.0.0.0 - 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.

    Devices Supported:
    G4, G5, G6, V10, V20, Flex 2, G Pad X, K10 and many more!

    FAQ:
    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.

    H840 model upgrade to Nougat

    For people who could not update the model mentioned in the title:

    Good afternoon friends, as my first contribution with XDA, I want to make available here how to do the original rom update of LG G5 SE H840. I bought mine on tim, my rom is linked to the carrier, I searched on various forums and did not find anything about whether I could upgrade to rom pro Nougat, and it can. I tested it here, it worked perfectly, I did it in the upgrade mode, I did not even have to format the cell phone, and then there was no connection with the ROM operator.

    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! First of all I want to make it clear that I do not take responsibility for damage to any appliance, carry out the steps down on its own!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I would like to leave here the credits for the forum XDA, autoprime, and Kevin Gaan.

    First step:
    Enter this link: forum.xda-developers.com/lg-g5/development/uppercut-lgup-loader-g5-variants-t3511295

    Download the UPPERCUT | LGUP | LG USB Drivers

    Install the LG USB Drivers first
    After that, install the LGUP
    After installing LGUP, extract the UPPERCUT folder where you installed your LGUP
    After that, download the KDZ (Rom Nougat from the device): drive.google.com/uc?id=0Bz-wrJOZFR3ba0RYWHByVkF1LVU&export=download
    After downloaded, plug your LG into the pc and put it in file transfer mode
    Then start the UPPERCUT that is inside the LGUP folder (which you extracted)
    Soon after, it will recognize your LG, and will open a window, first select the UPGRADE option
    At the bottom where it is written .BIN, click on it and select the file H84020a_00_OPEN_SCA_OP_0426.kdz (which I made available on the google drive link)
    Shortly thereafter, click Start and let the program complete itself
    After this, be happy with your LG G5 SE H840 with android Nougat free carrier.

    Jotti scan shows a Trojan, however no mention of having to disable antivirus software in order to use UPPERCUT in the initial thread. Just looking for confirmation that this is normal behavior, perhaps a md5 hex?

    it's a false positive. using virus total, the detection ratio is 18 / 55. Which means more AVs find nothing wrong with the file. I personally base my checks on Kaspersky for most things.

    currently hosted UPPERCUT_1.0.0.0.exe md5 = 80ba7ee6db475c0540509b3286fee232

    EXE doesn't touch any Windows system files despite what others have suggested... but if anyone is suspicious of my intentions they can choose not to run UPPERCUT.

    Anyone have a mirror this one says im blocking ads and im not.

    perhaps something is being at HOSTS level... or @ router level etc. You should see 2 banner ads on each CF page... if not then they are being blocked somehow/someway. They are currently always google ads so if someone is blocking google ads somewhere.. that'd do it.

    Thanks a lot for this wonderful tool.
    Now UPPERCUT Version 1.0.0.1 file removed, can anyone please give the link for version 1.0.0.1, i want to downgrade from nougat to marshmallow.

    everything from original 1.0.0.0 + 1.0.0.1 is added into NEW final 1.0.0.0 which is now added to OP.
    if you cannot downgrade with the current 1.0.0.0... then using 1.0.0.1 wouldn't have worked either.

    some users have reported downgrading directly from N to M working. I have seen H850 users in other threads say they can downgrade without unlocking the bootloader or needing TWRP to flash the old M bootloader. Can anyone else confirm? What about other G5 models? What about other non-G5 devices?

    I can confirm that H830 CANNOT downgrade from N to M without unlocking the bootloader, rooting, installing TWRP and flashing the M bootloader/bootstack first. I've used UPPERCUT to flash everything.

    Hello, I tried downgrade my LG V10 H960a from Android 7 (H960A30b_00_0616.kdz) to Android 6 (H960A20e_00_0213.kdz) using Uppercut. I got error message "Error 0x2000 file does NOT support REFURBISH process" at 4%. My anti-rollback is 0. So I guess there is no way to downgrade to MM from Nougat or did I do something wrong? :confused: Thank you :)

    Switch from REFURBISH to UPGRADE.

    Make sure all your data has been backed up before.

    When you reboot, a lot of system errors will occur, because your /data will not jive with the new "old" MM /system. You'll want to do a factory reset asap.
