You must set the cmd directory to the destination of fastboot.exe. Click here for a tutorial.

SUCCESS!!!

Couldn't get clockwork, any clockwork going so in a last ditch effort I tried the 'Clockwork recovery rom.kdz'. No clockwork, but when I flashed 2.5.1.8 suddenly had it working! The phone's button combo's are the same as the tutorials now, there must be something different this rom, none of the others changed the buttons. Fastboot is different too, like in this tutorial the screen just goes blank, before I had 'Fastboot' on the screen and used different buttons.

Anyway, I suggest to anyone with the same problems as me to use the 'Clockwork recovery rom.kdz' instead of the '2.1 Fastboot.kdz' in this tutorial.

Pretty happy now! :P

hi bro
i got waiting for device pls help me!

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.

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

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

if you want the black quarx 2.1 then carry on reading.

Hi there,
I have followed the instruction for android 2.1 with fastboot but the phone was collapsing - that is after doing it I had everything doing force shutdown including setup so I couldn't use it , I managed to flush it back to it's original v20c Australia but it seems these instructions just don't work for me.

I should mention that this is the second time I've done this and the first time I just breaked my phone! (Just got another second hand to play with).

Any suggestion why it's not working for me?

you probably have some dalvik cache files from the previous rom causing the force closes. always do fastboot -w or factory reset unless you know what you are doing.

I have done factory reset before hand, Don't have fastboot the this first stage should have given it to me but it with a proper 2.1 but that's didn't happen
and this has happened to me with two different phones.
