Ok now for all those whose LG Thrive just only goes to fastboot means you just soft bricked your phone! But don’t worry its still not fully bricked and there are ways to fix it. I also had this problem and the way i fixed it was by flashing the P500 kdz firmware. You’ll get weird distorted colors once its all flashed and booted again but just sign on your Google and go to the market and go back to the CWM recovery and flash it again and this time don’t do backup within the app! I noticed if you use anything in the app itself it causes this problem, so just do everything by rebooting your phone in recovery. LG Android Phones
First, get the LG Thrive usb driver from here:
Now, get the LG Thrive KDZ flasher from here:
Then get the the LG Thrive KDZ file to flash from here:
- V10E_00.kdz – 4shared.com – online file sharing and storage – download (If that doesn’t work you can Google for a P500 kdz file)
Ok once you decompress kdz updater there are three separate files to work with. 1. windows enabler. 2. msxml.msi 3.KDZ_FW_UPD.exe
Double click windows enabler and you will find an icon in the system tray at the bottom. Left click once and it will say on. Click and install msxml now.
Now you have to boot your LG Thrive into emergency mode, turn phone off even if it means taking out the battery. LG Phone Problem and Solution
Press power – volume up – back (this button is next to the home button).
Connect to usb now. the lap top found new hardware and installed four drivers.
Then open device manager. Left click my computer – properties – device manager. You need to disable the LG modem driver. Left click on it and disable. You might need to restart the computer for this so do that too.
Now launch kdz updater. There will be a drop box on left set to 3gspt or similar. on the right drop box set to diag. The long box just above the info box with a file at the side lets you browse to find restore file. e.g. V10e.00.kdz.
Double click the button below and let it do it’s thing. My laptop is old and slow. Took 15min. My LG Thrive shut down and came up with an error at the last minute. Anyway I rebooted and all was good.
Now the LG Thrive has all distorted colors and funky but don’t worry just Root your phone with Gingerbreak:
