    All files in zip are officially from LG (DLL,BIN,LG FLASH Tools)

    I have a new method how too flash your bricked phone back to factory stock. This flash is the LG Official firmware. This flash will wipe out everything and correctly flash prl,stock recovery,all partition. So let the get the ball rolling and lets hopefully get your phone back too fully working. Please follow all steps no short cutting, or altering files may cause issues with hardware and software too your phone. Please make sure you can get your phone in download mode before doing anything else.

    Directions - Please read them carefully

    1. Please make sure you have your LG Drivers installed before you start this process

    2. Please download this file from this link provided
    Sprint Users download this zip - Dev-Host - Sprint.zip - The Ultimate Free File Hosting / File Sharing Service
    Virgin Mobile Users download this zip - Dev-Host - VirginMobileUSA.zip - The Ultimate Free File Hosting / File Sharing Service
    Sprint Only LS696ZVF download this zip - Dev-Host - Sprint_LS696ZVF.zip - The Ultimate Free File Hosting / File Sharing Service
    3. When the download is complete. Please open the zip folder and you will see a folder inside the zip called LG. take the LG folder and move it too C: drive

    4. Please have at least 60 percent battery or more and put the phone in download mode. too get the phone in download mode. Please hold both volume buttons and plug in your usb cord into the phone
    5. Now go too your device manager and look for your com ports and find your LGE Android USB Serial Port. Now double click it and look for advance and then click it. now we have too change the com port too 41. when you are done press ok and close it out.

    6. Unplug your usb connection from phone and leave phone in download mode.

    7. Now open your windows explorer go to C:\LG\LGFLASHTOOL and look for the filename LGFLASHTOOL and right click it and run as admin.

    8. The program will open up. Now we need too program the LG Flashtool Software with Official LG DLL and Firmware and Comm Port

    9. Go to port settings in the LG FlashTool program and select port 1 only. and please ok.

    10. now we need too go too model settings in LG FlashTool and we need too select dll and bin files. I know it will show that we show the bin and dll already setup. But we too remove them and re add them. So do that now by choosing manual mode. and then select your dll and bin and then make sure your action mode is on upgrade DL and Connection Mode is on USB. once all that is correct. Press OK Box

    11. Now we are ready too flash the phone.

    12. too start the flash you will press the arrow on the top left side of LG FlashTool and begin the process when you press the arrow go ahead and plug in your device to the usb cable and the program will begin flashing the device . Please don't let your desktop or laptop cutoff during the process. Please do not remove phone from usb until the phone boots up for the first time. then unplug the phone and close out LG FlashTool. Now just do a factory data wipe in your settings and your good too go

    13. Good Luck and hope this guide will help you and please show me so love and click the thanks button. I busted my hump too get these programs.

    Notes- If your phone doesn't start the flash after pressing the arrow. just unplug the phone the download mode will stay on and replug in the usb port you used and within a few seconds it will begin.

    Notes- Please use windows explorer too unzip the file so you can see LG folder too copy too c: drive of your pc. also once the phone reboots for the first time you can unplug the phone. also if you remember your msl number please do a ##786# enter your MSL so you will have a fresh voice and data.

    I did use this method and you are awesome! I had no phone for several day by the time I found you. At first, I was a little concerned because it appeared to be a downgrade, but all I had to do was use the upgrade tool once I was running again to get back up to date. Thanks again!

    select dll and bin file, make sure you open the lg flashtool as a admin user before you do anything. if you open lg flashtool as a admin. select bin and dll press ok and then check your port settings in lg flash tool make sure you selected com 1 and then on the main screen click the the arrow on the top left side of the lg flashtool and if it doesn't start right away. thats a simple one unplug the usb port and plug it in back at the same locations make sure it is in download mode

    Sendspace is a horrible website filled with ads. My guess is you clicked on one of those and it downloaded some malware / spyware software. Delete that file immediately. Go back to the page and make sure you click the link in the blue box that says "Click here to start your download from Sendspace"
