Fastboot key combo

Recommended Posts

Has anyone found it yet?

I can get 'emergency mode' but not fastboot...

P

No, no luck. But I only got it this morning... so I'll keep trying!

I'm new to this -- I presume I need to get into fastboot/recovery mode before I can put Android 2.1 or 2.2 on the GT540, right?

It's a brand new phone with almost no info about it... so I'm slightly out of my depths :)

Is there anything I can do to help find the fastboot sequence/key combo?

okay, so emergency mode is vol - and connect usb cable

reading a russian forum that has got V10d firmware available from here: v10d here or here http://narod.ru/disk/21918471000/V10D_00.kdz.html

it's a 144mb download just to warn, it's a bug fix update to the v10c the v10d ships with

update: v10e is here http://csmg.lgmobile.com:9002/swdata/WEBSW..._00/V10E_00.kdz

Volume up + Camera and power on should apparently also work...

Confirmed, that combination works.

I now have a bright blue screen with '! Emergency Mode' on the screen.

That firmware link above is broken, by the way.

(What do I do now...?)

Have a look here for the ROM upgrade http://android.modaco.com/content/lg-gt540...pdates-from-lg/

Please be aware that it's for the Baltics, some Cyrillic regions and Romania, but it also has English and Korean.

I had to use KDZ_FW_UPD to get it to install and there's no need to place the handset in Emergency mode to install the firmware.

By pressing 'Call Button' and 'Home Button', then power on, system boots up in a 'Safe Mode'. I don't know if this is known mode or not, just telling. (Maybe I've just f*cked something).

camera button + power button, leaves screen blank, 4pda.ru have reported this to be fastboot mode.

going to try without battery, as the gw620 goes to fastboot mode without battery, screen dim lit then press menu and space

a destructive way to get to fast boot on the GW620 would be:

1) cat /dev/zero >/dev/mtd/mtd2

2) reboot

LG left /proc/config.gz on the GW620, can someone check the same file exists on the GT540

answered my own questions here http://android.modaco.com/content/lg-gt540...94/cpuinfo-etc/

the above on the GW620 is pkg, GW620 only has MTD1 - MTD6, GT540 has MTD0 - MTD 8

ok plug in usb without battery attached, you get a please put on battery cover animation

hold camera button, insert usb cable, screen dim lit but nothing else

ok just done dev/zero screen goes to lg boot screen then dim lit black screen
