Mine says that the “phone was not found” what should I do?

Martin on 13 August, 2011 at 8:56 am #

Worked fine for me. 5 mins and it was done. Going to test it for a week but looking good so far.

Chris Meowman on 16 August, 2011 at 11:11 am #

If it says “phone was not found” you need official “lg android usb driver”

Google it

Chris Meowman on 16 August, 2011 at 11:33 am #

If it flashes at android the android logo bootloader leave it for 15 minutes, it will start up.

Dave on 19 August, 2011 at 8:08 pm #

It’s sitting at the android logo bootloader, but it appears to have been successful.

LG optimus one, koodo up in Canada.

Dave on 19 August, 2011 at 8:26 pm #

note: Had to do remove the battery and do a hard reset – turn the phone on by holding volume down AND the home key.

@dave, … Dave’s not here. (boy, that dates me.)

Glad to see a report from a Canadian Koodo user that this worked for them. I used to ride the bleeding edge but I’ve fallen back to letting others bleed first. Many thanks.

@ Anonymous,
I just found how to fix the 3G problem with a koodo phone. The settings need to be entered manually. You can find all the infos on how to do here: http://koodomobile.com/en/ab/non-koodo-phone-data-setup.shtml

Thanks for the info, updated and phone is crazy fast! Had to manually enter the Access Point Name(APN)info to get data back, was kinda scared at first but Puerto Ricans are resourceful. LOL, copied the info from my wife’s phone and the data service started right back up, thank God. Make sure to back up your apps, I forgot to and lost some paid apps. Thanks again for this info, God bless.

gan007 on 15 May, 2012 at 11:46 pm #

I dont understand the statement
“In the place where you have to give path for KDZ file, select the Firmware a.k.a ROM you have downloaded using the link you made for your country specific firmware” what is the meaning of country specific firmware. Will the above in step1 not work?? I just went to the link in step one and downloaded the ‘Open European’ Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread firmware. Is it right that I just have to give this downloaded V20E00.kdz file in STEP6. …..Please help.
Thanks in advance
