Instructions to update LG Cookie Fresh GS290 firmware:

(1) Switch auto key lock ‘Off’ (Phone settings), Put Usb connection mode: ‘Always ask’ (phone Menu\Settings\Connectivity\usb connecion mode)
(2) Switch off Cookie Fresh, take out the sim & Memory card. Connect it to Computer(with or without battery, I used with battery) using Usb cable (keeping phone switched off). Computer will automatically Install Flash loader utility.
(3) Disconnect the phone. Switch it on. Press middle multitasking button, On tab ‘Running apps.’ press "end all" to end all running apps of phone.
(4) Run PC Suit and Connect the phone, select PC suit on phone popup. Pc will install automatically divers. Establish the connection between phone & PC in Usb mode. Backup your phone data (using PC Suit) for data security, Though The contacts, Memo and other data remain intact after firmware upgarde, but safety is a must. Don’t disconnect phone.
(5) Run LG Mobile Update- can be found in windows startmenu\all programs\lg mobile suppot tool. (Note B2capp requires internet connection for starting.)- Enter country and language in last tab. keep both files running. Check PC suit’s main menu displays Phone is connected.  (If disconnected, Remove usb cable for few seconds, Connect again, Establish connecion between pc and phone.)
(6) GO to C:\LG Utils & run "KP500_Utils EN".
Select Option: i <press enter>
GS290  <enter>
C:\firmware file.kdz   <enter>   (note:- if you have .cab instead of .kdz then enter V10Y_00.cab here)
Firmware file [Example V10f_00.kdz]   <enter>

The Upgrading will start. wait for 10-20 mins and if lucky you will be done on the first go. But Sometimes though every thing correct, the communication with the phone can not be established. In such a case plug out the usb cable then plug in again, select pc suit on phone, wait few seconds till PC recognises drivers. Repeat the procedure few times.
Even then If its not working then plug out usb cable, install the usb and flash driver again, switch off phone and connect it to pc as performed earlier. switch on the phone and repeat as earlier.(see from "Step 2" above).

Good luck!

The premise of the game is to control one of many champions and fight your way past hordes of spawning troops (called creep),

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your site?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures.
Maybe you could space it out better?
