Hi,

I am new to modaco but i have come to the rescue for upgraders of the gt540.
this includes:
preparing your pc
preparing your phone
installing your rom
download links

Extra
for those who want more

Black quarx rom download + intructions
clockwork recovery
black rom kernel update and overclocking

when updating you will lose apn settings and all data stored on the phones memory. items on the sd card will not be lost.

UPGRADE
1.backup anything on the phone itself
2.download the updater package and extract to your desktop
3.run LG Driver.exe and install
4.on phone go to settings>applications>development and tick usb debugging
5.right click on windows enabler.exe and click run as administrator
5.do the same for KDZ_FW_UPD.exe
6.at the bottom right of your pc screen click on the windows enabler icon so it will say "on"
7.on the KDZ click the dropdown box at the top and it will enable, then click again and select 3GQCT
8.leave the next one. click the browse button to enable then click the folder icon next to it and find your .kdz file
9.plug in your phone but dont mount sd card
10.click the button under browse to start installing.i suggest that you close all other windows except this and stop any antivirus scans that slow your pc down
11.wait until your phone restarts completely and the lock screen comes up, now you can unplug your phone.

updater package ht*p://www.mediafire.com/?sdy95t16nex2yeo
2.1 original rom ht*p://www.mediafire.com/?y7q20212djy40ap
[change * to t]

That was for android 2.1 with fastboot, if you just want the upgrade to 2.1 then your done.
If not, the next step is to get clockwork recovery

Clockwork Recovery v 2.5.0.5
1.repeat steps 5-11 of UPGRADE with Clockwork recovery rom.kdz file
2.once the Clockwork recovery rom.kdz file has been installed switch off your phone
3.download android sdk off android developers website and extract into your C drive
4.then right-click on My Computer, and select Properties. Under the Advanced tab, hit the Environment Variables button, and in the dialog that comes up, double-click on Path (in System Variables box). Add C:\<androidsdk>\tools\; directory to the path.
5.get your phone and if its on turn it off. hold power button and camera button until the lg logo goes and screen is black
6.plug your phone into your pc while its on the black screen and open cmd
7.download recovery.img and place in C drive
8.in cmd type: fastboot.exe flash recovery C:\recovery.img then press enter. it should say OKAY twice. reply if there is a problem
9.unplug and take out battery then place it back in

links:
Clockwork recovery rom ht*p://www.mediafire.com/?4r5n1cj5v49151p
recover.img ht*p://www.mediafire.com/?zak0q95fgemo8mp
[change * to t]

if you want to have clockwork with original 2.1 rom then repeat steps 5-11 from UPGRADE with the first .kdz file
if you want the black quarx 2.1 then carry on reading.

Black Quarx ROM
1.get your phone and if its on turn it off. hold power button and camera button until the lg logo goes and screen is black
2.download black system.7z and extract to your desktop
3.and run flash.cmd as administrator then plug in your phone whilst its screen is black.
4.it should start executing commands.if it still says "waiting for device" then post a reply.
5.the phone will automatically reboot when finished. it may take long to reboot but its not like that normally, its just got a lot to load.

im sorry but this bit makes no sense to me what so ever. surely you need to point it in the right direction for it to knw where the the files are?

also if someone knows what partition the quarx rom needs to be flashed to through cmd i would love to know. really annoying me now cus i cant find out what it is.

EDIT: dont worry i found the one and its working a treat now.

Ive gotten to step 6, its on a black screen and the usb is plugged in, I have the Recovery.img in C:\Documents and Settings\Karl upon opening terminal i type the code above, and this is the output:

Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
© Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.

C:\Documents and Settings\Karl>fastboot.exe flash recovery C:\recovery.img
'fastboot.exe' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

C:\Documents and Settings\Karl>

What am i doing wrong? Im so confused i NEVER seem to be able to use cmd B)

i found it hard to do it this way to. its easier to download the android sdk and do and put all the files in their. then use cmd to luanch it from that place. i ran into all sorts of problems doing it this way.

if you have a look through the posts on here or on xda-developers there is a guide on their.

Just figgured it out!! At long last B)

Instead of putting "fastboot.exe flash recovery C:\recovery.img" I wrote this:
Command 1.) cd C:\android-sdk-windows

Command 2.) fastboot.exe flash recovery C:\recovery.img.

Again this is ASSUMING you have installed your android sdk kit directly on the cd drive like: C:\android-sdk-windows. You will have to install the files you are asking fastboot.exe to install within the same directory example: C:\recovery.img or it wont work ( I learnt the hard way 6 hours!! )
Now have a custom rom and recovery + im gonna install the new kernle to enpower me with overclocking / Underclocking possibilities :0)
Op can you add my findings please.

Hi I'm glad you figured it out
I spent 2 days figuring it out from many different places that weren't clear and missed out big chunks
But figured it out in the end
Tell others about this topic as it is the first clear tutorial

I get to the stage where you flash the recovery.img file but the device isn't loading the drivers properly while in clockwork recovery mode.

When I check the 'Device Manager' it's only showing up as 'android' under 'Other Devices' and says that no driver is loaded.

I've tried using both the LG USB Modem driver and the Android SDK driver and none of them seem to work.

I'm running Windows 7

Any ideas?

I will try to do that on another computer...
