How to Flash / Unbrick LG Optimus G Pro back to Stock

Since there is no guide about how to Flash / unbrick the AT&T LG Optimus Pro E980 back to stock anywhere (quick Google search yielded nothing), I decided to create one myself.

Disclaimer: I am not responsible for any loss or damage (including bricking) to your device. Use this guide at your own risk!

Following is the stock v10g firmware and dll file for the AT&T LG Optimus Pro E980:

How to Flash AT&T LG Optimus Pro E980 wit a tot firmware Steps:

0. Install the software that pops up when you plug in your phone.

1. Get the LGNPST Package with the GenericModels and Components Plug-In.

2. Get the driver for the phone and install it

3. Get the Stock Rom TOT file and extract it.

4. Get the DLL file specifically for the LG Optimus G Pro E980

5. Extract the "LGNPST Store & Lab"

6. Install the following order:

  • a. LGNPSTv1.2_Store_Version.msi
  • b. LGNPST_v1.2_Lab_Version.msi
  • c. Components >> LGNPST_Components_Ver_5_0_12_0.msi
  • d. GenericModels >> LGNPST_GenericModels_Ver_5_0_10_0.msi

7. Run "Right_Click_Register_DLL.reg"

8. Make a new folder called "Models" in the program’s directory

  • Default: "C:\LG Electronics\LGNPST\"

9. Grab the "LGE980_20130314_LGFLASHv151.dll" and put it in the "Models" folder.

10. Right Click "LGE980_20130314_LGFLASHv151.dll" and click on Install/Register.

  • Note: DLL WILL NOT INSTALL UNLESS COMPONENTS AND GENERICMODELS PLUG-INS ARE INSTALLED!!! IF YOU CANNOT INSTALL IT ON A RIGHT CLICK GO TO "C:\Windows\System32" and drag the LGE980_20130314_LGFLASHv151.dll on "regsvr32" and it should install.
  • Make sure you install it properly
  • REBOOT!!

11. Run "LGNPST"

12. Plug in your phone, use Internet Connection Mode,and enable USB Debugging.

13. Phone should pop up in the list

14. Select the phone and click on the Open folder button inside the .BIN query underneath the COM## details.

15. Since it wants a .bin file, you can open the .TOT file by typing "*.*" inside the File Name query and hitting Enter

16. Select the tot file and Click OK

17. Then click on Upgrade

18. Wait a few minutes

19. Enjoy

I’m not sure if this working on AT&T LG Optimus G Pro E980 since this guide is originally made for LG Esteem.
