Hacks using the MFG app (Debrand, Update, Unlock, Relock)

This is not my work just passing along the info "all info found at xda "

All these hacks worked perfectly on my LG quantum

LG "Debranding" Hack

1. Enable the MFG application by going to the dialer and dialing ##634# then pressing call.
2. Launch the MFG application and enter 277634#*# when prompted for a password.
3. Select the Engineer Menu item.
4. Select the Other Setting menu item.
5. Select the Edit registry menu item.
6. Set the input boxes on this menu as follows:

Select ROOT_PATH: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

Input SUB_PATH: \System\Platform\DeviceTargetingInfo\

Input KEY: MobileOperator

Data Type: STRING

7. Select Query and write down the result in case you need to re-brand for some reason.

8. To debrand just leave the input data field blank and select SET. The tool will say fail but it really did set correctly.You can now connect to Zune and check for updates.

Zune will update phone to pre-nodo
