I'm encountering issues with KDZ updater. Either it stops working (windows dialog) or get an error saying that my phone is not connected by launching .kdz file. Installed drivers provided with the package. Tried different USB ports. Nothing. Can't get past the first step :/ I'm on Win 7 x64. Any help would be appreciated.

If you find your USB Locks on 'Launch Software Upate'

1. Boot into "Recovery'

2. Using 'Volume button' scroll down to 'mounts and storage' select

3. Using 'Volume button' scroll down to 'mount /sdcard'

4. Using 'Volume button' scroll down to 'mount USB Storage' select

DON'T PRESS 'UNMOUNT' just stay in that screen!

While sitting there....

1. Run 'kdz_fw_upd' from PC/Laptop

2. Choose '3gqct' as the 'Type'

3. Choose 'Diag' as the mode

4. Click 'File icon' and select 'Europe Open+Fastboot.kdz'

then hit ‘Launch Software Update’

I can't boot into recovery mode because I'm running official LG 2.1, no recovery.

Hi, I have GT540 with Android 2.1

I downloaded the files mentioned, and could flash with the kdz_fw_upd

But after that, i'm stuck... pressing camera button + power up don't do nothing. And normal boot lets the phone in a very instable state ! I cannot go to settings : get a message com.android settings shut down (or equivalent from french :) )

Is there someone who could help please ?

Thxs
