    Hello i have been trying to revive dead G3 for 3 months.
    My hard bricked device is D858HK.
    I have downloaded the firmware required then extract using LG firmware extractor.
    The problem is, it won't boot into download mode after i flash the partition using Boardiag v2.99a.
    Only 1 version of firmware found on the internet which is LGD858HKAT-00-V10d-HKG-XX-SEP-15-2014-32G+0.TOT
    When i flash partition using different firmware like VS985, it can boot into download mode.
    Now i am clueless, is the file corrupt or something since it won't boot into download mode.
    If i proceed with VS985 with LG UP, it give me another error.
    I also try hex editor method, no success.
    Can anyone suggest me what else i can do aside from dump this device into garbage.

    The download partition may be the same for the D858HK and the VS985, but the Android partition isn't.

    Look on eBay for a JTAG service that can handle the D858HK, and have them flash it for you. (A JTAG can flash a hard bricked phone as long as there's nothing physically or electrically damaged.)
