Did a soft boot on my LG Lucid by taking battery out for 12 seconds then putting it back in...now 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: VS840ZV7_07.S7_07.P58015.R5.01.cab 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 KDZ_FW_UPD_EN.zip to a folder
5.Disable antivirus software
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.
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.
