Try reinstalling the drivers for your lg device. Plus when you boot up into fastboot you should here the pc make a notification sound indicating its installing on your computer. if you haven't heard anything let me know. I'll get you a link to the drivers. are you running windows vista 32bit or 64bit?

i have reinstalled all drivers and yes it makes notification noise its the newest version of vista...................................

ok try this, reboot the computer, whilst the computer is booting up press F* or F12 to enter the boot menu, select " then select "Disable Driver Signing Enforcement" option. when the computer boots up, plug your phone back in and right click on the android setup and select "run as administrator" then see how that goes.

Good Luck

Hy everybody.

I have an issue. I installed the RC3 rom, I have data2system and the V6 supercharged script runing. My problem is that since RC2 ndrive stopped working, I tryed with both versions of ndrive (10 and 11), it tries to load (black screen) but no loading image and then after a few seconds it goes out to my home screen. I tryed with the apk installed on sd card, internal memory, with overclocking settings and without them, and it keeps doing the same, just for the record, everytime I installed ndrive I made sure that no orphan files or folder were kept behind.

Can anybody help me please?

Thanks,

Hugo.

What do you mean? With the tethering? You should only need the drivers.

Hello.

Can anybody help me?

I tried to upgrade my droid but when it reach step 7 (while in download mode) I accidentally unplugged the usb cable device. Now I can only see the LG logo on my phone. When I tried to plug it in the cable, the device been recognized on my windows 7 (64 bit), but when I tried to use LG Mobile Update software, everytime it reach detecting-phone-phase somehow the phone got disconnected (all the driver gone). When I tried the emergency mode (while in download mode) the phone got detected fine. It become disconnected everytime I choose to click the launch software update button. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

EDIT TO ADD:

Finally, I made it work. First I tried to disable LG Modem from Device Manager, and continue using KDZ updater. Follow every steps and voila. Working 2.3.5.

Hey.

I just installed this update and it seems to work alright. (Haven't had time for any major testing yet..)

One question though.

Is there any quick way of changing the program titles to English?

since half the preinstalled apps keep their russian names, even after changing the system language like explained in the install guide.

(edit) nevermind.. stupid me.. reboot fixed it.

(Edit again. .)

Removed 2.3.5 again and is back to 2.2. Like other versions of 2.3 I have tried, the battery indicator is boinked, and cant give a half decent indication of how much power is actually left. One minute it will say 30%, the next 80% and then shut down.

It is a shame since 2.3 has a lot of nice little features. But as long as the battery indicator doesn't work, it's just not worth it.

Also it seems to run out of power a lot faster on 2.3.5 than 2.2.

Hi I want to flash my LG with android 2.3.5, I have official Android 2.1 update 1 on it. So I need to flash to 2.2 first (and after that with 2.3) and finally with 2.3.5 or directly with 2.3.5 ?

Just follow the instructions in the first post, making sure you follow all the steps carefully. (As you state it's the official update I presume that it is also unmodified, meaning you will have to follow all the steps anyways)

Hey guys, having a bit of a problem with this! I followed the instructions up to the "boot into quickboot" part. No matter what I do, I can't get it to do it.

The first time I tried to flash the quickboot rom, it seemed to get stuck at the android logo and KDZ reported that the upgrade was complete; so I unplugged it but it didn't finish the boot. I pulled the battery and it booted up fine. I tried to boot it into quickboot, but had no success.

The second and third times completed the reboot and KDZ reported upgrade complete with the phone sitting on the homescreen. I tried to boot into quickboot again, but still no luck.

I performed a factory reset, as per someone's recommendation and flashed again. Same thing as before.

Can someone help me out with this? I initially tried just to root and install app2sd so I could install more apps, but the app2sd packaged provided didn't work and the third party tools I downloaded just ended up making the phone almost unusable.

My KDZ logs are attached in case you need them.

I'm going to start updating in an hour or so. Will be updating from (unofficial) 2.1. Wish me luck! I'll be posting rants about things that don't go smoothly :D

Could you upload the files to somewhere where they don't nag as much about downloading multiple files, having to input captcha's and stuff? Rapidshare is probably better than this crappy site?

You mean Fastboot (Black screen after LG Logo) - Power up the phone holding the camera button in (Fully pressed in till you feel it click the second time, first is just focus); from your log files it seems that you may have left the LG Modem installed. (You should remove this before updating)

I disabled and uninstalled the modem (it's still detected as an unknown device, however). I even tried plugging it into one of my rear USB ports, but it STILL refuses to boot into fastboot mode after three more KDZ flashing attempts. (yes, I did make sure the camera button clicked twice)

WHy is it that this stuff never works when I try it? :(

Just checking....

Type: 3GQCT

Mode: DIAG

KDZ: *pathtofile*\romfastboot.kdz <--- this rom MUST be the last one flashed, or it won't have fastboot. -- Flashing another ROM will remove it. (You may also use the partition re-size kdz, which will shrink the system down to 150mb and expand the userdata up to 230mb and add a visual fastboot -- Blue screen with status text)

Personaly I suggest using the partition re-size ROM, as this not only adds fastboot but also optimizes the partition sizes. (An extra 100mb to use never goes astray)

------------------------

These files are hosted on my personal server, and are a one-click download. (Supplied as alternative download links for all GT540 users)

KDZ Updater

Fastboot - ROM

Partition Resize - ROM (150mb system, 233mb userdata, 64mb cache) -- This re-size can be undone by using any other ROM listed.

V20A_00 - ROM (LG Stock ROM v1)

OUT ROM - Boot logo restore.

V20D_00 - ROM (Latest LG Stock ROM) -- Use this if reverting back to LG Default.

Browse ROM Directory

------------------------

Flash Player for GT540 -- Swiftdroid tested, it works... but not so great. This is NOT Flash Lite, it's full 10.1

(QR Code below for direct download to phone)

EDIT: Hmm, yep my post has gone past the 5 lines it started with... thank goodness for Edit ;-)
