SOS Guys
I try to upgrade like you say above my GT540 but it is stucked with the screen say DOWNLOAD MODE.
I disable the modem from the device manager but now the software updater says PHONE NOT FOUND.
What to do ?
PLEASE quick reply.
Thanks in advance.


Ifixed the problem from before with just removing the battery, so i did the procedure again and....
Different problem now:

On the software updater last step is: Drive C Erase and the updater stop working and closes.

What to do with that?

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.

Because of different phone, computer, and understanding. This is not math 2+2=4. Hardware may fail; then 2+2=0.

Worked Good for me! Thanks! B)
I had uninstalled some of the google apps and got lots of errors because of it - the steps to flash worked and so did root method.

Because of the errors the flash failed first time.
I did these additional steps and flash worked:
-Remove SD card and Sim
-Do a factory reset before starting the flash
-Flash as per instruction above
-Format the SD card after flash (Do a backup copy if you must)

All good now and lessons learned as far as not uninstalling too many components

all I can suggest is to try running from cmd prompt (Start>Run, type "cmd", then enter path to root.bat e.g. "C:\temp\root.bat")
