    Im trying to update and do a custom rom for vd.. but i only have my wireless internet from the phone to use right now.. everytime i go in to update via the lg updater tool.. it makes it to 30 percent and says cant connect to my phone.. is it because i need to use an other source of internet for this part or is there a special step i need to take to make the updater work?

    I'm not sure you can download the update using the phone you are updating. I see the scenario you have set up (PC tethering to the phone you wanna update)

    Not gonna work.

    I wouldn't be so sure about that, because the update downloads BEFORE the phone goes into its update mode. I almost want to suggest using KP500 with the VC cab and see if it produces an error.

    EDIT: I meant the VD cab.

    I did the kp500 way last night with no internet. It will have a small popup window with an error but if you just move that to the corner it will keep doing the update. This was on a bricked phone thats still bricked so I cant tell ya if it would work 100% but it did say that it was the updated version when I was done
