Here we introduce an excellent tool for LG Thrill 4G, the “All-In-One” that is made by XDA member, OS_Hacking. This tool is based one on “fastboot” mod, it is a mode by it we can flash Recoveries , kernels & bootloaders

Functions of the “All-In-One” tool:

  1. GB Bootloaders (some people call it “Berni’s files”)
  2. GB RZ Recovery
  3. GB TWRP Recovery
  4. GB CWM Touch Recovery
  5. GB CWM Normal Recovery
  6. ICS Bootloaders (wkpark’s 1.25a Bootloaders)
  7. ICS TWRP Recovery
  8. ICS CWM Recovery
  9. ICS 4 Keys Fix Kernel

How to use the “All-In-One” tool to root LG Thrill 4G Android 4.0 ICS:

  1. Install omap drivers , download it from here: http://d-h.st/b7h [mirror]
  2. Download the “All-In-One” tool: [Mirror]
  3. Launch “[All-In-One][P920].bat”
  4. Connect the phone without battery, when you connect it the tool will show a lot of details and give 5 seconds, in this 5 seconds insert battery immediately.
  5. Install the ICS Bootloaders (wkpark’s 1.25a Bootloaders)
  6. Install the ICS TWRP Recovery or ICS CWM Recovery
  7. Now you have your bootloader unlocked and recovery flashed.
  8. Download the Su_Bbox.zip and place it to the root of your SD card
  9. Reboot your phone to recovery and install the Su_Bbox.zip
  10. Congratulations! You are now rooted

My experience:

This tool really works on my LG Thrill 4G. Once you open the all-in-one tool and it says wait five seconds, count to five then put your battery back in. If you do it correctly it will vibrate when you insert it. If not, then restart the procedure. From here you can install the WKparks bootloaders and custom recovery. I installed the TWRP recovery manager, I like it way better than CWM. Easier to use IMO. After you install the recovery boot into it and make a backup. Install the Su_Bbox zip file on your SD card then boot back into recovery and install the zip. That’s it.

Follow the instructions and you will have CWM on the phone

4. Copy the “Su_Bbox_1.20.2_gazhead_signed.zip” file to memory (either internal or external SD card)

5. Boot into Clockwork Mod, shut the phone down all the way
a) hold down the 3D button, the VOL DOWN and POWER at the same time. (some say hit vol up but this didn’t work for me)
b) when the backlight comes on the screen, let go of the power and vol DOWN ONLY, keeping the 3D held down until you see the clockworkmod touch interface come up.
c) choose install zip from sdcard, find the Su_Bbox_1.20.2_gazhead_signed.zip file using the vol + and – keys.. then scroll down past the No’s to the YES and tap it on the screen.

Since there is no guide for how to flash / unbrick the LG Thrill 4G with a kdz firwmare / rom anywhere (quick google search yielded nothing), I decided to create one myself. There are tips and references for each step at the end of this post in case you get stuck, but if you read all the instructions and follow this procedure carefully, hopefully you won’t need them.

All things you will need:

  • USB Driver – [Download]
  • KDZ_FW_UPD_EN.zip – [Download]
  • Shttps.rar– [Download] (your antivirus can show it as a virus or infection but after the process you can do a full system scan and there will be no virus in your system)

How to Flash / Unbrick LG Thrill 4G back to Stock:

  1. Download and install USB Driver
  2. Edit your hosts in C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\ ( you can use notepad for this) and add at the end , 127.0.0.1 csmg.lgmobile.com
  3. Download shttps.rar unpack and run http.exe, a server status window will open “IGNORE IT BUT DONT CLOSE IT” and you will also see a SMALL SERVER icon in TASKBAR
  4. Right-click ON ICON and click on “Settings” >>> A “Configuration” Box will open, Then click on “HTTP” section >> Scroll down for a line “TCP/IP port for HTTP Server” and change Port value to “9002”. Click ok and minimize server window.
  5. Download and extract KDZ_FW_UPD_EN.zip
    • Install B2CAppSetup.exe
    • Launch Windows Enabler.exe, and switch to the “ON” position( left click on icon)
    • Install the “msxml.msi” file
  6. Open Device Manager
    • Windows XP – Right Click “My Computer”, click the “Hardware” tab, and select “Device Manager”
    • Windows Vista/7 – In the Start Menu search bar, type “Device Manager” and select it at the top
    • Unplug your phone
    • Take out the battery
  7. Check Device Manager for the current active “COM Ports”
    • Boot into DOWNLOAD MODE
    • Plug the phone into the computer without the battery inserted
    • Hold [VOL UP + POWER]
    • Put the battery in and wait until it vibrates or for 3 seconds
    • Check Device Manager for a NEW “COM Port”
    • If there is not a new “COM Port”, restart Step 6
  8. Launch the “UpTestEX_mod2_marwin.exe” file, select your KDZ file.
  9. Set emeregency, 3gQCT, and press “NORMALL WEB UPGRADE TEST”
  10. Now “Read Phone Information” box will open with blank information, Just press “Upgrade Start”
  11. Now “Select country and language” small box will open Select “Different Country” and “English” and press “OK”.
  12. Now actual flashing will start, and if your KDZ file is good flashing will end without any issue.
  13. Congratulations! Your LG Thrill 4G should be flashed successfully now.

If your phone boots properly, ignore this.

Part 1: Booting into recovery
If your phone does not boot and you are stuck in a boot loop:

  1. Boot into RECVOERY MODE
  2. Hold [VOL DOWN + 3D]
  3. Press the POWER button until the phone vibrates

Part 2: Wiping data in recovery

  1. Use VOL DOWN to navigate to “wipe data/factory reset”
  2. Press the “3D” to select it
  3. Use VOL DOWN to navigate to “Yes”
  4. Press the “3D” to select it
  5. Restart the phone

Caution: Do this at your risk, I will not be responsible for any damage or brick on your phone. And good luck.
