Thanks a lot for this! It really helped! :) official updater stopped and bricked phone, then lg told me I'd have to send it away and pay for it! Thanks to this though I know have 2.1 and a rooted phone! :)

I just sent a note to Paul asking for this thread to be pinned to the top of the forum.

Excellent work here - should be recognized, IMHO and all that....

Sorry for this stupid question. Is this update will work even if your moving from country to country? Will it work if I insert sim card of different carrier from which ever country?

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.

Great reference thread. Installed the Greece rom, this one has Dutch in it. Android 2.1 works great on my GT540. And trust me, I know what to do with a rooted device.

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:
