    Ok, I figured out the error. my .cab file was named something different, so I made the adjustment and it works

    Quick question though, my phone shows that I am on V9, not V9VC or V9VD, that's ok right? The only feature I care about is the wifi hotspot.

    Thanks,
    Michael

    The version # is in hexadecimal. 0,1,2,3,...9,A,B,C,D,E,F (A is 10, F is 15)

    There is no version V9VC or V9VD, only V8, V9, VC, VD. You are at V9 right now. It is rootable and your hotspot will work.

    You can go to VC if you'd like and personal hotspot will still work, but rooting could get messed up unless you follow specific sequences. VD the personal hotspot will work if you install a custom ROM, TR1.8.2

    If all you want is personal hotspot to work on stock ROM, just stick with what you have now, it is less trouble.

    Hey SFHUB,

    I just wanted to say how grateful I am to you (and this forum). This thread was a life-saver. As a newbie, I really just wanted to reclaim my wi-fi hotspot, and this did it for me. If I ever feel brave enough, I may try rooting, but for now, I'm ecstatic with this simple fix!

    For all who are curious, I have an Optimus S, and had just received the evil VD update. I followed the instructions for flashing to V9 using the kp500. And the entire procedure was painless! I have zero programming experience, and it took me about 30-40 minutes total, beginning at step a.

    The instructions were amazingly clear and easy to follow. Here is just one MINOR edit that would help newbies.

    For step k), I had a brief moment of confusion when I tried typing "KP500-Utils-EN.exe" into the command prompt, and it didn't work. I had just performed the optional checksum, and it took me a couple minutes to realize that I first needed to enter, "C:\KP500-Utils-EN-v0.4.2>dir" before I could then type "KP500-Utils-EN.exe" to run the executable file.

    Like I said, I'm a newbie. I barely I understand what I did. I'm just glad it worked! Thanks again.

    Glad you got it working. I was about to modify the instructions to reflect your suggestion but realized that what you did couldn't have affected whether KP500 ran or not. "dir" just gives a directory listing. It doesn't affect where programs are run from or whether programs can run.

    I think possibly there was a small typo when you typed KP500-Utils-EN.exe the first time and after you entered "dir" then reentered KP500-Utils-EN.exe, it was entered correctly.

    I have two Win7 x64 systems (one Pro, one Enterprise), and both complain that the LG drivers are unsigned and refuse to install the Android Platform Sooner Single ADB Interface (lgandadb.sys). Is this critical? Is there a signed copy of this driver or a workaround? I'm not exactly a Win7 expert...

    [edit]
    Found a workaround; rebooting Windows and pressing F8 to disable driver signing enforcement.

KP500 in the Unbrick thread flashes in Emergency mode and is most useful when your phone is no longer responding (bricked).

    ====

    Thanks go out to cordell, DCJoe, kingdavidbaker for suggesting this method and working through the procedures, KSmithInNY for comments making this more readable and of course zefie for his unroot procedure and archive of the firmware cabs.

    WARNING: If you received a refurbished LS670 from Sprint as a replacement, you might run into troubles trying to use the LG Mobile Support Tool to update to VC/VD. See this post for details on how to tell if you are affected by this problem. You can still revert to V9 and root. However if your refurbished unit is affected by this problem you will NOT be able to upgrade to the VC/VD using the LG Mobile Support Tool. You will need to force flash VC/VD using KP500. Instructions for how to do force flash VC/VD are in the reference section of this post.

    WARNING #2: If you recently received a LS670 from Sprint which came with VC/VD from the factory, then there is a possibility you have a newer hardware revision with different LCD hardware. Since only VC/VD have the drivers for this new LCD hardware, if you revert to V9, your display will be blank. The phone is still functional (as in it boots into android and you can still operate the phone, just with no visual feedback). Don't worry, worse case, just use KP500 to flash back to VC/VD and you'll be back to normal. However if you've come this far, you might as well get root by performing the critical function of manually installing a custom recovery (or the stock V9 recovery) even without the display being functional, after which you can upgrade to a VC/VD-based ROM and get your display back. You can also install to view your screen on your PC. See this post for more details (will be updated as more information becomes available).

    High level summary
    1) Install the LG Mobile Support Tool () - the KP500 tool referenced below uses this to write the firmware to your phone
    2) Force flash the V9 firmware using the KP500 tool (see below)
    3) Root your phone, install Xionia CWMA custom recovery, and update to LS670ZVD. Directions here (Part 2, skip the first step).
    If you are an advanced user, you can skip some steps and do the alternate procedure in the reference section.

    Details for how to Force Flash V9 using KP500
    (BACKUP your app data if you care about it, the following assumes you already installed USB drivers for your phone to get adb working)
    a) make sure you have at least 600MB free on the drive containing your windows installation, specifically the drive that contains Documents and Settings (or ProgramData on Vista)
    b) disable standby, hibernate, and any screensavers
    c) make sure your phone is fully charged
    d) turn on USB debugging mode on your phone

    e) download the KP500 tool zip file and unzip to your C: drive (attached, windows utility, tested in WinXP, Vista, Win7(XP-compatible mode/disable signed drivers))
    You should have a folder

    f) download the V9 cab file from zefie's archive below () () and place in same folder/directory as (e)

    g) open a windows command prompt

    h) from command prompt rename LS670ZV9_20.S9_20.P60671.cab as LS670ZV9.cab

    The output of the above "dir" command should look like this:
    (make sure you have at least these 5 files, one file is named LS670ZV9.cab and the file size is 99,220,700)
    (if your directory does not look like this, STOP here, figure out why)

    i) OPTIONAL: run a checksum on the V9 cab file to verify file integrity () Unzip the fsum.zip archive and place fsum.exe in the same folder/directory as (e) From your command prompt type

    expected checksum - make sure both the checksum (1st column) and filename (2nd column) match


    j) connect your phone using USB cable

    k) from your command prompt, run the KP500 program/executable

    l) choose option J - Flash with assistant (file .cab)
    m) when it asks for model # - LS670
    n) when it asks for cab file - LS670ZV9.cab
    o) when it asks for version - LS670ZV9_20

    p) you will see "Loading..." and it should bring up the LG Mobile Support Tool in a separate window
    Step 1 - Analysis
    if you see this error, then you didn't install the


    if the LG tool gets stuck at 35% checking the phone model, make sure you are booted into Android and not the Recovery partition.

    if the LG tool asks you to restart because it can't connect to the phone ("checking connection with phone") unplug/plugin the phone, then press restart and everything should work fine. (per recent reports #1 #2)

    if the LG tool won't recognize your phone no matter what you try, try reinstalling the USB drivers from the LG tool (per recent report)

    Step 2 - Download
    if the tool aborts and you see this error near the end of the log

    then you may have renamed the cab file incorrectly or placed it in the wrong folder/directory, see if this post applies.

    q) Step 3 - Update
    After the download step (which in reality is just unpacking the cab file we specified, not actually downloading), your phone screen should switch to a red LG Logo with the text "Download is in progress. Do not disconnect cable."

    Let it run, do not touch your phone until complete, it'll take around 15 minutes

    r) when the update/flash portion is ALMOST complete the phone will reboot and you'll see Android on your screen, this possibly could behave like a first boot, meaning it'll take a while to build everything from scratch, 3 minutes or less. You'll eventually see the Android startup home screen. This may trick you into thinking the flash is done. Don't be tricked. Regardless of whether the LG Mobile Support Tool is at 100% or not, do not touch the phone yet, it still needs to reload your NVRAM items onto the phone. Do NOT touch the phone until it says Completed

    s) Step 4 - Complete
    once the LG Mobile Support Tool says completed, you should be at the standard android startup screen, congrats, you now have V9 (possibly with a VC or VD recovery partition, which will become Xiona CWMA custom recovery as part of the LS670ZVD rooting process) If you have no intentions of running VC/VD OS/Radio, then you can stop here and stick with V9. will give you one-click root. However if you ever want to get root with the VC/VD OS/Radio, you should continue with the next steps.

    t) exit the LG Mobile Support Tool and KP500 (option Q)

    u) You MUST have this step (install CWMA or stock V9 recovery) completed if you want to preserve your ability to root. You will NOT have permanent root at the end of this step (because you will lose root when you upgrade to VD). You WILL, however, be set up to have success following the rooting thread instructions. If you don't care about root and just want to run stock V9, you can skip this step completely.

    Root your phone, install Xionia CWMA custom recovery, and use LG Mobile Support Tool to install LS670ZVD. Directions here (Part 2, skip the first step). Installing Xionia CWMA custom recovery (or stock V9 recovery, or any custom recovery) will preserve your ability to root after updating to LS670ZVD. Installing LS670ZVD using the LG Mobile Support Tool will get you the latest stock VD Android and VD radio/baseband while keeping your existing CWMA custom recovery. After that you can choose to stick with stock VD Android or update to your favorite VC or VD-based ROM. If you are a more advanced user who doesn't need specific instructions, you can save some steps by jumping to step 2 of the alternate method in the reference section below.

    v) re-enable standby, hibernation, and/or screensavers if you need to

    i feel like a noob <8-)-k

    It could affect the updating of the prl, but i had no problems (after using qpst prl from another phone, x-fer to optimus, then dial *228 on cricket) getting new prl updates
    when i was on sprint it also still updated by dialing *228 or *22800 and or (ymmv) *22801 *22802..... - *22809

    Ok, I think it is actually easier to get rid of the update message by clicking more info, then pulling your battery. It doesn't require MSL and it doesn't affect Update Profile and Update PRL.

    Sprint does there updates a little different than cricket. PRL is not as big a deal as Update Profile because as you mentioned, you can load it with other tools. Update Profile though is nice to have working because you if you mess up your data logins, that is the worse time to figure out Update Profile doesn't work.

    Anyway, I'm not really opposed to adding the info you provided, but if there is an easier solution which doesn't even require MSL, I think that will be best for most people.

    I have a few questions

    last week I updated my phone and the hotspot widget stopped working so I read around on the forum and found this post and reverted back and everything works great now, but I now keep getting the system update reminder to update to LS670ZVC. Is this the update that killed the hotspot widget? If the LS670ZVC update is what killed the hotspot widget how can I get my phone to stop wanting to update. I am currently on android version 2.2.1 and SW version LS670ZV9. thanks for any help in advance

    ZVC killed root, but left hotspot. ZVD killed root and hotspot.

    When it tells you there is an update, click on more info, then pull your battery. People report that stops the nag message.

    Don't know what is up with that. I just downloaded it and the ZV9 link was ZV9. Which link are you using?

    As to why it is unpacking, you probably have a handler defined for .cab files. Try using ctrl-click

    Ok... this is driving me nuts. Ive been fighting this thing for 3 days now. I have spent the past 3 yearsjailbreaking my iPhone, and never had trouble. This is almost confusing, but in the end, I still cant get a valid result.

    I have followed the instructions here to revert back to V9, had to use the bling method of doing everything from there, as I have a new phone withthe new display. I managed to get z4root to report that it had rooted, yet executing an ADB SHELL in cmd promot still returns a $, not a #. So Im guessing it actually isnt rooted. From there in the instructions Im stuck. I cant go on without a proper root.

    Ive fought to this point 5 times, and have run out of time and had to revert back agian to VD. What am I missing?

    No it actually IS rooted. You will get a $ symbol upon entering ADB shell, that is normal. You need to type "su" within the ADB shell and allow the Superuser prompt. This requires that your screen be on and not at the lock screen.

    Don't worry, the su prompt thing is job security for folks around here
