Re: LG Fathom V6 ROM release thread.

1- Install drivers
- LGUnitedMobileDriver_S4981CAN33AP22_ML_WHQL_Ver_3. 3
- LGWindowsMobile_USBDriver_WHQL_ML_Ver_1.0
- LGSmartPhone_ModemlinkDUNDrive_WHQL_ML_Ver_1.0

Translated: Google each of those nasty strings and download what you find.

2: Get youself a copy of a patched version of LGNPST. We can't provide links for it, because you need a copy that allows you to write to the phone. I have a copy somewhere, but don't count on me to find it. If you have trouble, PM Me and i'll get you sorted out.
There is also a .dll file that you need to register. (you can google for how to do that)
It's the one linked to on the XDA thread. it's called vs750.dll

3: on your phone, go to settings, connections, switch usb and choose VZAccess mode.
then plug the phone in and wait for windows to see it. Load up your copy of LGNPST and see if it sees your phone.

4:
- Launch LGNPST.exe, it should detect your phone (filename on the top right panel should be "VS750.dll").
- Click on "phone settings", wait a few secondes for a new window to appear
- Click on read button
- It will create a VS750_COMx.nvs in C:\LG Electronics\LGNPST
copy that file to as many places as you can. if your flash goes wrong, this file will be what keeps you from having to RMA your phone.

5:
The files listed (The SCR and PRL) need to be gotten from a decrypted ROM. I can upload those later since I forgot you need them.
if someone else beats me to it, i'll throw them on my site.

- Go in provision Tab (should be selected by default)
- Select Upgrade
- BIN file : "c:\VS750\BIN\VS750XXX5.BIN"
- Check SCR File, then select "C:\VS750\SCR\VS750VZ7_04.scr"
- Check PRL, Nam1 (uncheck nam2), select "C:\VS750\PRL\58006 - EVDO OEM Factory Default.prl"
- Don't check Eri file
- Click on "start"
- Keep fingers crossed for approximately 10min. The phone will reboot a few times, this is normal.
- Enjoy your 1st VS750 custom rom

The reason the phone reboots is it first flashes the ROM, then it flashes all your user content back, then it flashes your radio settings. The last one is important because if it doesn't flash them you're left with a brick unless you backed up your .nv file. If you did, and the flash goes sour, all you need to do is place a copy of your .nv file back in the LGNPST folder and pray it works..

I hope that clears some stuff up. If it's a little murky, it's because my brain is murky right now too.

Re: LG Fathom V6 ROM release thread.

To flash, here are the steps and files you need. Follow all the steps in the readme.txt to flash a new ROM. It worked on my XP computer, I haven't tested Vista, or Win7.

Re: LG Fathom V6 ROM release thread.

Pizzaboy, I really appreciate your putting this together. I flashed V6 b2 (not manilla) and I'm experiencing a few issues.

1. Opera Mobile doesn't seem to get on the internet even when wi-fi is connected.

2. I can't get the cell data to work. I tried adding a new network for Verizon with the number #777 and that didn't help. I also tried the ota programming by dialing *22891 with no difference.

3. The last thing is I'm having an activesync error when trying to sync with my exchange server. It says it is out of memory but there is obviously more memory now than before. The post below mentions some missing files could cause this. Is anyone else experiencing this.

Activesync Out of Memory error : 8007000e - ACER Users / ETEN Users Forum

Thanks again for blazing the trail Pizzaboy.

Re: LG Fathom V6 ROM release thread.

Hi Pizzaboy,

Just to give you an update, the v6b2 manilla also had the same problems mentioned above, but the da_reeseboy "LG Fathom ROM stripped clean.7z" ROM mentioned in post #12 seems to work with activesync and 3G data access.

Thanks again for your work.

Re: LG Fathom V6 ROM release thread.

Flashed my own B2 ROM. No issues so far. Was able to properly restore a backup I made pre-flash and it is more stable than before.
To get 3G working on Verizon, you need to dial *22899 and reprogram your data.
I'll see what I can do with Manilla. I'm currently split between getting a second Fathom or getting a new GFX card for my desktop.
i'm leaning toward GFX, but I'll see if I can get a cheap Fathom.
Anyone got a spare?

Re: LG Fathom V6 ROM release thread.

I think I'll keep waiting for a more stable Sense build...

Since ya wont be removing these from beta, perhaps then once ya get a good stable working version (reported from both you and users) you could title them RC, RC1 and RC2 et cetera.

I'll honestly probably go with a numbering system once I get a few more kinks ironed out.
v6.0.1' 6.0.2 6.0.x etc
