Just bought the singer psw 2.0 used. The converter box lights flash when I plug it in then they don't turn on anymore. And so the program won't install without recognizing the converter box. Thank you

Are you using a USB to Serial cable to communicate with the box? You need to find out what COM port the cable is on, and reset it to either COM1 or COM2. In Windows, go to Device Manager, and click on the listing for "Ports." Double-click on the device, select the Ports tab (should be set on a 9600 Baud Rate) and the Advanced Button. At the bottom of the Box, you'll see a drop-down box with the current COM port assignment. Drop down the box and select the lowest number not in use. If both COM1 and COM2 ARE already in use, click on it anyway. It will ask for a confirmation, click Yes.

LG VX 9600 Versa Firmware Upgrade


Follow these steps to reflash the firmware of your Verizon LG VX9600 Versa Cell Phone to version 4.

  1. Install the LG Versa USB driver. Download and extract the first file "LGUSBModemDriver_Eng_WHQL_Ver_4.6.rar". Once extracted, install the file.
  2. Download the "DLLs.rar" file and extract it. Once extracted add the "Right_Click_Register_DLL.reg" to the registry.
  3. Install the LGNPST 1.1 software. Download this file, extract it, install it. REBOOT.
  4. Register the VX9600.dll file. Go to the directory "C:/LG Electronics/LGNPST/models/VX9600" and put the "VX9600.dll" and the "LGNPST_GenericModel_Ver_1_0_5_0.dll" files into that folder. (These files were in the "DLLs.rar" file.) Now, RIGHT CLICK on the "VX9600.dll" file and click "Register".
  5. Get the BIN file for version v04. Download it from here: LG-Versa-VX9600-v04-Firmware-Update and extract the VZW folder.
  6. Update your phone. Now plug in your phone and open up the LGNPST software. It should be under Programs ->Phone Flashing Applications -> LG Electronics. You should see your VX9600 under the "Model" column. Now where it says "BIN File" click the folder icon and navigate to the "VZW" folder with the bin file, then select it. You may also need to go to file -> Select DLL and select the "VX9600.dll" file, although I didn’t need to when I did it. Click start and your phone's firmware will be reflashed.
I hope that helps.

How to upgrade firmware
Only Windows support:
1. If you haven't already, download the firmware file and extract the zip
2. Connect the drive to the secondary IDE channel as a master drive with
no other devices connected to that channel (Ignore if it's an SATA drive).
Start Windows and verify it can recognize the drive.
3. Close all other programs including: screen saver, and /or antivirus.
Do not open any programs or start any system functions during the
update as they can interfere with data transfer and damage the drive.
4. Open the firmware program RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR (right clock run as admin).
5. Click the update button and do not touch or interfere with the drive
while the firmware is being upgraded. IMPORTANT - DO NOT INTERFERE WITH
THE DRIVE DURING THIS PROCESS. If an error occurs during the upgrade
process, or the upgrade process is cancelled during this process, damage
to the drive can occur.
6. When the upgrade is complete the screen should say FIRMWARE UPDATE SUCCESSFUL. Re-boot your PC.

Did a soft boot on my LG Lucid by taking battery out for 12 seconds then putting it back it continually shuts itself off over and over again

Official Rooting Process LG Lucid Fixed:
Let me just first start off by thanking all of the developers for all of there hard work in writing all the these programs that make it so easy for all of us to work on, fix and modify all of our phones and devices.
I did not write any of these procedures, or programs, i will just expand on what others have already done here. If at all possible donate to those who do all the work.
You will need a set of programs downloaded on your pc to flash your device to the next to last final update. I believe the the final update is: ics 4.0.4 or VS840ZV8_05.S8_05.P58016.R5
What you need is: converted to:
For whatever reason the latest final update for ics 4.04 for LG Lucid, has a locked bootloader, will not root, it frezzes and fails every time, at least i couldnt get it and this is how i did it.
How to force phone into download mode: Pull battery Put battery back in/ Volume up+down at the same time plug usb cable into phone port to pc, wait for it to virbrate a couple of seconds, and boom your in.
Note: recovery mode is not the same as download mode, keep that in mind when flashing the os. Flashing custom roms, nandroid recovery, and nandroid backups you will need to be in recovery mode.
Also make sure your pc is reading you phone before hitting the upgrade button or flashing will fail.
In order to get the cab file for the Original LG Firmware you will need you will have to obtain the Original LG Firmware.exe program from xda developers.
Instructions to convert the cab to a KDZ and flashing it: AKA UNBRICK
1.Make sure drivers are installed
2.Connect your phone to the computer in "Download Mode"
3.Open and extract to a folder
4.Install msxml.msi
5.Disable antivirus software
6.Open UpTestEX_mod2_marwin.exe
7.Wait for the program to open
8.Look for "Encrypt cab file to kdz file"
9.Click the folder icon
10.Choose the location of the cab you downloaded for VS840 firmware
11.Encrypt cab -> kdz Program will freeze up. DO NOT EXIT until program says Done!!! Otherwise it won't finish converting.
12.Close program
13.Open KDZ_FW_UPD.exe
14."Type" choose CDMA
15.Choose in "Phonemode": Emergency
16.Click the folder icon and choose the kdz file that UpTestEX_mod2_marwin.exe just made.
17.Click Launch software update and enjoy!

18. Once you have completed this procedure you can go on to rooting your phone using Root_with_Restore_by_Bin4ry_v15_(2).7z exe If you do not plan on rooting you can skip the rest of this turtorial and update using the ota ( over the air) method or you can use the KDZ_FW_UPD.exe and convert the latest firmware update to kdz and re- flash your phone to the latest upgrade. Or you can use the LG Program B2CAppSetup.exe Have fun either way.
19. Once the terminal comes up click on #1 for normal mode and follow the instructions. Dont worry about the code it asks you to put in, just click restore phone when it asks you to and wait for it to reboot.
Note: I will not be posting any links or mirrors. you will have to find them on your own. It is very easy to find all of the usb divers for the device and all of the software you need on xda developers web site. Or just google it.
My advise to you is to get all of the rooting files from xda, because there is a Root_with_Restore_by_Bin4ry_v15_(2).7z exe from google that is a downloadable program that simply put is a virus, the program you need is a noninstalable standalone program that opens a terminal. Just be careful where you get your stuff from.

How to upgrade lg gd510


Download the LG Mobile Support Tool. I have provided the link below to the english version. Just change the "uk" at the start of the address to your country code, for your language.
Click the big pink "Download" button in the centre.

2. Once installed, run the program. When it has completly loaded, click "Customer Support" on the top bar. From the list, choose "Recovery Phone". On the box that has just appered, type in your "IMEI", found on the back of your phone, behind the battery. From the list, choose the phone model (GD510). Below the box, it asks for the software version, so if your software version is V10G, then type in "V10G" (cAsE SEnSetIVe). Click the "Check" box next to the IMEI, NOT THE SOFTWARE VERSION!!! It will come up with a pop-up box. Just click "OK".

3. The LG Update tool will now load. It will ask for the IMEI again, and the Seriel Number. You can find the seriel number behind the battery, under the IMEI. Wait for it to download the software. When the pink text apperes, which starts off something like "Update does not start untill phone is plugged in...", remove the battery from your phone and plug it in. Now, it should update your bricked software with the normal software. Once it is all done, it will tell you that the update has finished. Click the "Exit" button in the bottom right hand corner. Unplug your phone, remove the battery, and put your battery and SIM Card (And Micro SD card) in. Turn on your phone, and you're done!

Wait until a message shows that "PRESS POWER BUTTON" Press it and wait until the phone automatically switch on.
Thanks for votes.....

WHERE Can i download pc suite for LG GM200?

The solution to this is very longwinded and even after all the trouble you go through, LG's software still won’t allow you to move java files from your PC to the LG GM205 (it might with some of the other phones).

This is what you do:

Go to this LG support site: Select your region and country (mine was Europe -> United Kingdom).

On the left hand side, click the link/picture entitled "Manuals & Software".

A new window may pop up. Click the Download button in the centre of the window. This will download an installer/update program.

After that's installed, run the installer/update program and you will be asked to enter your phone's IMEI but DON'T use *#06# to get the IMEI, get it from the back of the phone behind the battery (as the two didn't correspond when I was doing this).

Now the LG software for your phone will start to download. Mine was 214MB (!) but you cannot use a download manager so if you have a dodgy connection and get disconnected (like I did) you'll have to start the download from the beginning again.

After that's installed you may need to restart your PC. You can now connect your phone to the PC (in data service mode) but don't run what you've just installed, run the installer/update program again. This took a few attempts for me and you may have to be patient but eventually the installer/update program will download and install additional drivers for your phone. After that you may need to restart you PC yet again.

Now you can connect your phone and run the LG PC Suite.

However, I don't think it’s worth it as (as I said at the top of this) the software still blocks you from moving java files to my particular phone (LG GM205 Brio).

A simpler solution is to buy a Micro SD card and load the java files onto that instead (in "Mass Storage" mode).

My Lg Kp500 was flashed and now it has a network problem?

The mobile is flashed with an old version of upgrade.  or too many applications opened. Keep your screen free of World time also Click on the center button -> click the fwd arrow next to Favourite Apps then click End all. If you close all running apps then the mobile will work faster.
As for network Coverage -> check the firmware version KP500AT_V10b or d would be perfect on network coverage.

Can not remeber phone lock code

USB Flash Driver
XS++ 3.1 Darwin

1) Converting to CID52 (if required)
If XS++ detects a DB2020 CID49 or CID51 phone, it will automatically ask if the user wants to upgrade.
CAUTION!!! If You Upgrade To CID52, You Can Not Revert Back To CID49 Or CID 51.

2) Backing up GDFS
Backing up the GDFS isn't something whichnecessarily has to be done when flashing firmware, but it is a verygood way to ensure you don't damage your phone beyond repair.

Step 1.
Takebattery out of phone and put back in (do not turn phone on). Open XS++and click Connect. Hold down the "C" button on the phones keypad andconnect the USB cable. If this is the first time you flash your phoneyou will need to install the Flash drivers.

Step 2.
Click on the GDFS tab

Step 3.
Click "Backup GDFS" and wait (shouldn't take more than about half a minute).

Step 4.
Done i_bigsmile.gif

If 0000 and 1234 doesn't work, go to the 'GDFS' tab when connected inXS++ 3.1 and press on the button 'Phone Lock'. Then it will tell youwhat the code is smile.gif
