    I am, when i go to download the file it wont extract, says its either unknown file type or broken. I have all of the file types check in winrar
    And the LGE ports do not show up either. Idk if my phone is bricked but i downloaded the Beats audio installer and it installed a driver then it made me reboot so now it doesnt go past the boot LG screen. Ive tried the reset and all that.. No luck

    Thank you for posting this! I was trying to help a friend with rooting his LG Optimus Elite while at work. Needless to say that I am still at work a couple hours past close because the POOT ROOT had the phone in download mode after rebooting. Extremely lame.

    Thanks for this information. I was your instructions were a little better to understand for someone that has no idea about a few of those steps. ^_^

    Having some trouble getting the LGTools exe to launch. I've put the file on my c:, but getting an error when trying to run as an administrator. A side by side error... any thoughts?

    Nevermind, I didn't copy over the other LGFlashTool.exe right, it wasn't the offline one. Thanks for the tool! Came in handy so many times on a different comp, weird that it didn't work on this one lol

    If your phone rebooted after it showed 98 percent and says download fail. It's all good. Sometimes It does that.

    I've tried flashing my virgin mobile lg OE about 8-10 times now and each time It gets to 98% and gives me a download fail message. Log says: Error WM_PROGRESS_MSG, We can't communicate with specific port, FAIL. Phone does not reset and is still stuck in download mode. Any ideas?

    please help me. I am able to use the flash tool com41 is working for the flashtool . The tool issues a reset at around 78%. after that my phone goes for a boot loop.
    The tool hover progresses to 98 % and my phone is boot looping multiple times. at around 98 % i get an error . Could you please help in sorting this out
    boot loop as I use it here implies that my phone shows the LG screen and after a few secs reboots. Please help.

    Just do a factory reset using the combo buttons and wipe data/cache
