I want to download its software how can i do it?


By software do you mean the phones software/firmware?
If so...
you will need to download EFS, find that here and an alternative version here (use this one if your pc flags the first one as a virus)
  • First, on your pc's desktop, create a new folder by right clicking in an empty space and choose new - folder, name this LGAPP or something that you will remember.
  • Now open the EFS program, but don't connect your phone yet. You will see a large empty screen with an "explore" button on the top bar, press this.
  • A smaller empty box will open in the middle, click cancel on this one.
  • You will notice that the screen is now split into 4 sections. In the bottom half is your Pc's files, the top half will show your phones files once we are connected.
  • In the bottom left section, find your desktop where you saved the new file that you named before. Open the desktop folder and then open the newly named file, the bottom right section should be empty.
  • Now, put your phone into "Data mode" by going to Settings-Phone settings-Connectivity-USB connection mode-Data mode. Return to the home screen.
  • Now on EFS close the first window so you are back to the empty screen with the explore button at the top. Click "explore" again, the small empty box will reappear.
  • Now when you connect your phone you will have about 3 seconds to tick the box that appears in the top left of the small box and then hit connect in the bottom right of the small box. If a warning appears and says something about a port, just disconnect and reconnect your phone.
  • Once connected you will see your phones files in the top half of the screen.
  • Make sure that the bottom half is still showing the folder you named earlier.
  • In the top half, right click LGAPP and click re-name, LGAPP(text) should turn blue. Now type TOTO and click in an empty space until it is no longer blue
  • Right click TOTO and choose refresh. This enables you to copy the protected files in your phone
  • DO NOT RENAME TO SOMETHING BLANK!!
  • Your phone will disconnect itself
  • You will get a yellow screen don't panic, just reconnect
  • You will notice that a "ghost" LGAPP folder has appeared, ignore it
  • Now right click on TOTO and choose "read", after a few seconds your files will start to copy to your pc, this will take about 40 minutes, so sit back, go watch tv or somethin just don't turn off your pc or your phone, in fact, don't touch either.
  • Once this has finished you will have a copy of your own firmware backed up. Save this at all costs, put it on a memory stick or something.
  • In the top left section scroll all the way to the top and click the folder with no name (very top one) you should now see TOTO again in the top right section.
  • Right click on TOTO and rename back to LGAPP, then right click and refresh again.
  • Now click on "Disconnect" on the middle bar and choose "yes" from the pop-up. Your phone will now reboot. Thats it your done.
Or go to the LG website if it's Sync software you are after.

O2 icon on main screen lg ku990i


its a hard coded part of the phone dependant on your network, however, google "viewty theme manager" and "EFS Mediabuilder" and download them. The next bit is a bit long winded, but bare in mind that once this has been done, any theme you pick with the theme manager (even the default one that the viewty comes with) will remove the O2 icon.

Run EFS Media Builder, and navigate to "LGAPP/Media/swf/theme". BACKUP "theme_bg2.swf". If you really don't want to **** things up, just backup the whole damn "theme" folder. You don't have to back it up but its strongly recommended you do,
I'm a phone flash modder, so i take the risks and can tell you ive had no problems with it whatsoever, but make sure you read the installation readme's you get with the theme manager and efs builder. If you google "installing viewty theme manager" there are also a few video tutorials on how to install the theme manager correctly. Once its been installed though you never have to worry about it again.

from the KU990.co.uk forums - a tutorial on how to install it:

To install it if you have a memory card:

1) Install "theme_bg2.swf" into "LGAPP/Media/swf/theme" using EFS Media Builder then restart the phone once done.
2) Navigate to Settings, Phone settings, Connectivity, USB Connection mode and pick Mass Storage from the list then connect the phone to pc
3) Switch USB connection mode to Mass Storage then browse to the Memory Card/Removable Storage.
4) Drag and drop the "Themes" folder from the rar file directly to the root of the memory card.
6) Navigate to Settings, Screen, Handset theme and pick Silver from the list.
Installing to Phone Memory
1) Edit the "ThemeList.txt" file to make all custom themes point towards the phone memory (//LGAPP/Media/swf/theme/Themes)
2) Navigate to "LGAPP/Media/swf/theme" with EFS Media Builder.
3) Drag and drop "theme_bg2.swf" file and the "Themes" folder into this loction then restart the phone.
4) Navigate to Settings, Screen, Handset theme and pick Silver from the list
You need to edit the ThemeList.txt if you install to the Phone as it currently set to the memory card location. Change the '0' to '1' for all the themes in the ThemeList.txt file.



All you have to do once it's been installed is pick your silver theme and click your "c" button twice on the home screen to bring up the theme manager.

I know its long winded to get rid of the o2 icon but unfortunately its the only way without removing hard coded files from the viewty and potentially breaking it =/

Now if only your screen is damaged then you can make an connection via USB.

conect your phone with the usb port.
start in windows the program EFS MEDIA BUILDER by AKOM1976

you have to see that the folder already exist on your phone
LGAPP now make a swich. Rename LGAPP >>> TOTO.
Now the hidden files will apear in the EFS exporer.

Now you can backup the folder TOTO to your pc. Choose a
folder where you want to place TOTO. Stay on TOTO click right
and choose read. When its finished. The folder written to your pc.

So this you can do vice versa to Fix the backup of the files.
after that reset automatic by the EFS explorer the phone start up
normaly. A new screen you have to find it at google I am sure there
will be a loal dealer where you can buy new parts for LG KU990.

The files you need to see on your phone with EFS explorer looks like this:

This software update is at your own risk.

Choose your model of your mobile phone and download it.
Fallow the instructions by the software update be patience
if you don't see anything it take a few moments.
Comment posted on May 04, 2009 No you have to see that the folder already exist on your phone
LGAPP and a nother folder TOTO if the phone starts up and you didn't switch the folder it make a new folder LGAPP without the programs so all the folders in the folder LGAPP are emty.

So thats why you have to be sure that the folder TOTO is already exist on your phone.

And if you have a backup of the folder TOTO you can check if the maps are empty or not.


These files have to be in the map toto on your pc.
These are the file names that is logged by EFS explorer, you can see the folder names and the files that are in the folder map exist

Check if these file are located in the folders of your phone if not
delete the emty folder LGAPP and make a new folder named TOTO open that folder.

Now read the files that is on your pc in the map TOTO.


This folder have to be the files in it and doesn't suppose to be empty.


The files you need to see on your phone with EFS explorer looks like this:
