  1. this information is GREAT!!!. some computers though seem to getan error about csmg something. and easier way is to just download a program from lg called “LGMOBILE SUPPORT TOOL” and run it. before running the software make sure your phone is charged all the way and follow the instructions of putting you phone into download mode (hold down the volume up/+ key and plug your phone into your pc. on the top right click the button that says OPTIONS and select UPGRADE RECOVERY. the software will do all the rest. it downloads and installs the stock OS and takes about an hour on a 10MB connection. if you are running windows ex this tutorial works perfect however any pc OS that is newer gives the errors :). Hope this helps someone else.

  2. “compatibility mode click wundows xp” im on windows 7, this option ISNT EVEN THERE and there IS NO”service pack 3″ option either. Does this matter? What should i do? I REALLY LIKE this phone!

  3. Don’t need to do all of those steps, just download “LGMobile Support Tool from “http://www.mylgphones.com/lg-software-tools-download, and install the USB driver within the tool, and run options/upgrade recovery. All set.
