    Second, you need a computer to do this......................download and open files with a computer.

    "3. Connect phone in recovery mode (Phone off> Volume Down + Home key)(This will not work with certain recoveries, in that case you will need your MSL code here and then dial ##PORT# and enter MSL code (aka SPC code))"

    How do I know I'm connected? I launch the sw update then it gets to unpack ZD5, I let it stay that way for 30 mins, 10 mins and 7 mins on three different trys. I get to my recovery mode by holding down home, volume up and power. I tried it that way, and I tried it the way listed above.

    What am I doing wrong?

    30 minutes, I believe your battery is dead. Get a charged one.

    I've followed this to step 10. Then I get an error that says it cannot unpack the file.

    I followed on with the balance of the steps but nothing changed.

    When I power on the Optimus V, it just goes to the white LG logo and hangs.

    What should I try next?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    What does it say? Is it stuck? Try without battery.

    Yeah, got it unbricked!!!

    Finally went to my laptop and installed everything fresh from there.

    Also, I had to use the following from Upgrade/Downgrade/Return to stock directions:

    5. In type, choose 3GQCT
    6. In Phonemode, choose DIAG

    In step 5, I had to set it to CDMA. Then it all came back alive.
    Without these steps, I was stuck in Emergency Mode regardless of what I
    did.

    Thanks for all your hard work. Major lifesaver for me.

    I have done this for several times now and I get well along into the software update. and i get the error message and then i take the battery out and put it back it. Then it runs for a while the it gets to the reset phone part and the phone gets stuck on the recovery. from there the phone is stuck on that and even if i take the battery out and simply turn it back in it just turns on in recovery.

    I have done it like 10 times now with the same result.

    Any help? My phone wont wont mount the sd card so i cant install another recovery. i have tried with 3 sd cards now and it wont work. Any help will be well appreciated

    That didnt work. I am still having the same issue. It goes through it all but when the phone resets, it just resets into the recovery.

    And the sd card it is still not mounting.

    I'm having an issue like G.Monroy.92

    Steps 1-8: Okay
    Step 9: Upgrade Error / WParam: 100 / LParam: 84
    Step 10: Okay
    Step 11: "reindeer battery" = "reinsert battery"?
    Step 12: Okay

    Then it ends up at:

    Phone: CWM-based Recovery v4.0.1.5
    KDZ_FW_UPD: Step : Phone Reset(DLL Cmd)

    On phone I "wipe data/factory reset" and "reboot system now" and I get to:

    Phone: CWM-based Recovery v4.0.1.5
    KDZ_FW_UPD: Upgrade Error / WParam: 100 / LParam: 92

    And phone keeps rebooting into recovery.

    I have done the steps 10+ times both with and without the battery and either the above happens or it gets stuck on repeating "Step : Flash Burning(SDRAM to FLASH)".

    I updated to VM670ZV9 without thinking about waiting for it to be road tested then rooted as per ([ROOT] Virgin Mobile Security Update Now Rooted!!! Thanks jcase!!). I wanted to get rid of crumbs of things I installed/uninstalled and without thinking (once again) I did the Menu / Settings / Privacy / Factory Data Reset. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated, I can't afford a new phone and losing my grandfathered plan! Any other information you need?

    Yes, it bootloops into the CWM-based recovery.

    I don't know why it shows my response before your question, but yes, it bootloops into the CWM-based recovery.

    Did you try to start from emergency mode??? That would help if you haven't tried already...

    Battery seems alright, Tried that, but phone outputs as follows:

    -- Installing: /sdcard/flash_image.zip
    Finding update package...
    Opening update package...
    Installing update...
    Installation aborted.

    In the Root instructions followed previously ([ROOT] Virgin Mobile Security Update Now Rooted!!! Thanks jcase!!), it talks about "Prevent Recovery Re-Write". Is there something I need to do to enable the Xionia installation?

    Flash the flashable xionia zip (one may not exist, if that's the case I'll make one) then hit reboot recovery.
