    Original Post:
    I just successfully extracted the .bin file for the Optimus S from the .cab file!
    Going to make a new unbrick guide for the Optimus S tomorrow!
    Can someone please send me the Optimus V ZV4/ZV5 firmware so I can extract it? I see links on xda here:
    Upgrading Optimus-V VM670ZV4 to VM670ZV5 firmware - xda-developers
    but they require passwords and I am unable to PM the guy because I do not have enough useful posts. Thank you.

    and I got a response for the p/w to the zv5 link, not saying who it is though. Unless he wants to reveal himself.

    Good luck with that. Don't think anyone has been able to extract the bin or anythimg else from those cab files. On a side note if you don't know already you can just double click the cab in windows then pull the wdb and wdh files from it.

    I'm going to write a guide once I figure out everything...

    It will be the ultimate unbrick source for the Optimus V!

    And then I will do one for the Optimus S.

    I wasn't able to flash the ZV5 at first, I found the original name of the .cab and I renamed it and BAM it worked like a charm!

    I'll upload it and PM it to you, I only want the link in my unbrick guide, although I will only be using ZV5 in it because of the different touchscreens.....

    That didn't exactly answer my question, sorry.

    The ZV9 update, basically, will it REMOVE it?

    Just a thought if someone with a new screen wanted bootloader access... Something that might work is setting up your pc for Android screencast then update to the zv4 firmware. The screen would be blank if successful but screencast should work. Use screencast to root and install a compatible rom and recovery.... Just thinking out loud really but it would in theory give zv5 owners fastboot access
