    Thanks for your help. I copied everything to the ADB folder, but when I try to execute the first command, I receive "failed to copy 'busybox' to '/system/bin/sh': No such file or directory"

    ugh, a catch-22.
    can't mkdir or mount without busybox/toolbox, and adb requires that some form of sh (like busybox) be in the correct location. I don't know what to do with your issue... you may have to keep trying the pst tools until it gets a full flash through.
    sorry, I'm out of ideas.

    the THANKS button is quite acceptable if you're as stingy as me, too.

    If there's a working recovery be it stock or custom you shouldn't need to go back to the unbrick methods. After flashing an update.zip it's sometimes necessary to wipe the data and cache partitions. Not wiping them can land you in a bootloop

    Yes, I have tried wiping both after flashing stock ZVD, ZVJ, etc... I still get the boot pause at the Sprint and VM logos.
    Thanks everyone for your help... looks like I'm one of the first to have a complete brick with stock recovery still intact! ;0

    Hmm OK new plan of attack. Boot to stock recovery and use lgnpst to flash one of the available cab files for Zv4-5-d

    Edit: zv5 preferably because it'll work with both screen versions and is actually VM firmware

    Yes, LGNPST fails at 27% in emergency mode with any cab/computer/OS. I'll try with recovery mode.

    UPDATE: LGNPST fails at 30% (same error as in e-mode) while starting with recovery.

    Another forum (LG Optimus firmware. - Page 3) suggests trying the "full firmware" which should be ~600MB. Does anyone know if this is true and/or if there are links to download it?

    From recovery you should be flashing a cab not bin with lgnpst.
    If I had more time I'd team viewer with you to try and help but lately I just haven't got the time required. I can say though that the zv4 and 5 cabs are the only firmware I know of for this phone and the bins were extracted from the original cabs. Also doing an emergency mode bin flash leaves no traces of previous firmware... It's the only way to get the recovery buttons switched back once flashing sprint firmware on my v

    Also what firmware is 80mb? The zv4 cab I have is 97mb I can't see zv5 being much smaller but I'd have to find my copy to be sure

    Edit:ok looked at all my files the zv5 cab is about 101mb and both zv4 and zv5 bin files are 341.6mb and zvd bin is 356mb soooo i think your lgnpst problem is you have a corupt download of the needed files. to confirm this post an md5 checksum of what files your using and i can check it against mine.

    Right, I was flashing a cab instead of the bin and getting the error at 30% not 27% as with the bin in e-mode.

    That wasn't my post from another forum... I was just googling and found another user with the same issue on that forum.

    These are the MD5s for the files I am using

    It's an LS670 that's causing all of these issues. ;0

    I do have a ZV5 bin, but I'm having trouble with LGNPST allowing me to flash it.
    VM670ZV5_07.S5_07.P61007.cab - 683ece33ad70198d5cf0fcb5a7c1681d

    I originally downloaded the ZVD bin here... [GUIDE] Optimus V ZVJ
    I tried downloading it again from there (I can't find it elsewhere) and still get my same MD5. Maybe you can post your ZVD bin somewhere for me to try?

    Well you need the vm670.dll to flash the VM firmware. But if you phones a ls670 probably better to just stick with the ls670 stuff. I'll try and find a place I can upload the zvd bin.... It's a pretty big file and I'm not sure where I can host it...

    Edit: the zv5 cab md5 doesn't match mine either... Strange

    My issue is similar, but with a couple differences. I've tried 3 other batteries from my friend's ls670s. It loops at different speeds depending on how dead the battery is + it does it with ANY of them. Anyone else agree there's a short or bad node somewhere on the board? Insight would be awesome cuz I'm bout to chuck this fu**ing thing into the stratosphere!!

    Yes, I was trying with the VM dll, but LGNPST still wasn't accepting the firmware to flash.

    For that ZVD bin... I don't know if your copy will help or not... flashing the bin in e-mode results in the same error as flashing the cab in recovery mode...

    I dunno.... Seems something is up both the zvd bin and ZV5 cab md5s don't match mine... I'm going to check the update.zips that you posted in a bit.. If those even say they flashed successfully the md5 should match mine.

    edit: Confirmed, zvd update.zip matches mine. somethings off between your bin and mine and i'm assuming yours is corrupt some how because mine worked the last time i had to use it. i need to find a place to host the bin i have so you can try it. you should also be aware that even if we do get it unbricked with the bin it will zero all your nvitems unless..... you know your msl correct? use lgnpst to read the phone settings from recovery mode and then browse to the model/mtp folder you registered the dll in and look for the COM#.NVS file and save it. it can be used to restore everything. if there are more then one delete them read the settings again and save the newly regenerated one.

    Ok, sounds good. Hopefully this is just a broken cab/bin issue. Thanks again for your help!

    I'm mostly just using this as a WiFi device, so I'm not really worried about the CDMA radio...

    So.... Sorry for the long delay since my last post. I just double checked the md5s and think I was reading the wrong number last time I checked because they match now.... Sorry. I guess I was more tired than I thought when I posted that.

    I still have a feeling it's something in your setup not playing nicely but I don't have any other ideas short of mailing it to someone else to try
