Once you are using an OPEN version of the rom SIM's shouldn't be an issue. Though a couple people have problems with 3G networks, so you can read up a few of those threads to get a better Idea of which rom would be better suited to your needs.

I would just like to say thanks to the creator of this thread

I thought i had totally bricked my phone i got this error

19:00:02 : Call fn_StartUpgrade

19:00:11 : 3GQCT : wParam = 4, lParam = 0

19:00:11 : Step Complete : DLOAD Change

19:00:51 : 3GQCT : wParam = 3, lParam = 0

19:00:51 : Step Complete : C Drive Erase

19:01:34 : 3GQCT : wParam = 100, lParam = 6

19:01:34 : Step : Upgrade Error error code = 6

19:01:34 : ResetStartInfo() Call

19:01:34 : _DetachDLL Call

19:01:34 : _DetachDLL Call End

19:01:34 : FreeLibrary Call

19:01:34 : FreeLibrary Call End

19:01:34 : ResetStartInfo() Call End

19:01:34 : ===FINISHED===

And it just wouldn't get past the LG logo, i attempted the emergency solution but my pc would not keep hold of my phone for the update, i figured out that it connects the LG modem again even tho it is disabled, so once you plug it in you have to disconnect the LG modem straight away after the usb is connected before it boots it off again. After that it proceeded with the update to 2.1

Happily playing with 2.1 thanks :rolleyes:

After some reading i put the phone manually to download mode (Power & Volume down button).

I disable the LG Modem right after i conect with Pc.

i did again the procedure (it took about 30minutes to finish) and everything went fine until the end, then it gave me:

UPGRADE ERROR

WParam :100

LParam : 6

What does it mean? Is my phone ok?

Thank you in advance guys and sorry for the trouble.

Do you know that you can edit your posts, right ? You dont have to post a new response every couple of minutes to report something, just edit your post. Anyway if you are capable going into phone settings, Try to do Reset Phone to Factory Defoults. If not, try to reflash it. IF you got so many trouble doing it, im pretty much sure u didnt readed or fallowed everything.

Like i said many times, we dont owe you guys anything. If you need help, be patient... If by advice you get rage attack, I really dont want to get into this, good luck. And if my post sounded like an insult, im sorry for this.

This started to happen a lot lately, you help people, they get angry.

Hello again,

I have to say i'm sorry if my message seemed like an attack to you.

It's just there are ppl like me that they are not experts and we try to follow the instructions anybody give but sometimes not everything goes as planned. So since you do want to help be a bit patient with us (stupid in these kind of things).

Finally I have to thank you becouse reseting my factory settings like you said fixed the problem and now my phone works great.
