Steps to flash LG stock Firmware (All models)
Hello everyone! Welcome back. Today, I’m going to discuss on the different steps to be followed to successfully flash stock firmware/ROM in LG smartphones/tablets. Android, being an open source provides the user to have a complete control on almost everything. We can root our device by flashing Custom ROMs and that lets us have some enhanced features on our smartphones.
But having Custom ROMs in our phones or the process of doing that is not easy as we say. One wrong step, and there you will be with your device bricked. In such cases, you should go for flashing stock firmware.
If you are having an LG phone or tablet, you can use the LG Flash Tool to install the official firmwares with .KDZ or .TOT extension to restore your device to stock. In case you’ve been experiencing some serious issue on your LG phone, or you just want to downgrade or upgrade device firmware, the LG Flash Tool is a must-have utility. Now, let’s discuss on the detailed steps to be followed to flash LG stock firmware.
Take a complete back up of data from your device as the flashing always wipes out the complete data from your phone memory.
Charge your Phone at least up to 70-75 %.
Before you connect your device to your PC by USB cable, You should make sure that any Antivirus in your PC is switched off.
- Select Type – 3GQCPT or CDMA you don’t want to get worry about selecting this option or that as Flashtool is modified only for devices with SIM.
- PhoneMode = DIAG
- Reset time = 33000
- Browse KDZ file (Rom) and Select it. (Locate to “LG flash tool 2014 Folder” There is the copied one)
Download KDZ firmwareon your LG device. Warning: KDZ firmware are different for different LG devices and model as well. A wrong KDZ firmware can brick your device.
connect your LG phone to your computer after turning it off. (usually, by pressing both the volume buttons). After connecting, it must show Download mode with the firmware update screen.
Select the type as CDMA, and then select the downloaded KDZ firmware file and hit CSE flash.
Normal Flash – “Normal Flash” If you want to install Stock Rom then you should select “Normal flash” another thing I want say, in this, you will not lost any data from applications and Internal memory and Memory chip.
CSE Flash – If you want to flash Custom Rom (Custom Rom is not official one. more details about custom Rom.) then, select “CSE Flash” as wel as in this, you will lose all your data from applications and Internal memory. CSE make a clean installation. you can flash Stock Rom with CSE too.
Ignore the message written on the next window and just hit the start button.
On the prompted window, Select your region, language accordingly and select clear phone registry and click OK.
It will take some time to complete. Once done, it should reboot automatically. Wait for some time for the process to complete.
