I've got a problem. I've done everything thats been said in here I believe.
1. Installed the drivers.
2. Started the flash.bat file.
3. The phone botted stating "S/W Upgrade. Please wait while upgrading..."
4. Took out the USB cable when the CMD panel went down and placed the battery in.
5. Tried to boot the phone again by just pressing the power button.
Result. Nothing happens.
My phone wont simply start again...
Someone got a clue for what I can do now?
I've tried the same procedure about 20 times by now, with the same result happening over and over again.
Is the phone broken?
This is the correct procedure:
(If you haven't already done so, install drivers on PC. If you're using an overclocked PC, don't. Restore it to default speeds before flashing.)
o Turn phone off
o REMOVE BATTERY FROM PHONE
o Eject micro-sd card from phone
o While holding BOTH Vol-up and Vol-down depressed, plug in usb-cable.
o You should NOT see anything on the phone-display at this point, it should be black, but you should hear a sound from the computer having discovered a device.
o Now run flash.bat. (Do NOT run any commands to check if the connection is active first. If you do, you will have to unplug the phone and do step 4 again.)
o After the command-window closes, let the phone display the LG-logo, then go to black at least two times before unplugging cable and inserting battery.
If this doesn't work, then, yes, something somewhere is broken. Try to redownload files, then try again. If that doesn't work, try with a different cable. If that doesn't work, use a short path (move the directory containing the image and flash.bat to c:\2x for example) and run it from there. If that doesn't work, try a different USB-socket. If that doesn't work, make sure you have an Optimus 2x phone. If you are sure you do, check that the battery actually holds a charge. If it does, return the phone.
