[Q] Unbricking the LG Escape?

Hi, I recently got my first smartphone, an LG Escape (P870). It recently came out on September 17. I figured out how to root it by following      I was recently using titanium backup to remove some of the stock applications I didn't want. However, when I try to start up my phone it displays "Security Error". Apparently this is because I uninstalled Google Movies (see post #20)      How would I go about unbricking my phone? The post linked to this, but it's for the LG Nitro HD (P930). Are they similar enough that it would work? Thanks.  		

                			Get the correct .KDZ for your phone, then use LG's kdz flasher.  That will return your device to pure stock.  -- Sent from my TouchPad using Communities  		

                			Thanks! but how do I get the firmware? The site doesn't seem to be giving the firmware locations.  csmg.lgmobile. com:9002/csmg/b2c/client/auth_model_check2.jsp?esn=***  Also, is this the correct firmware installer? mediafire. com/?jkk2dwewjmfz346  		

                			Honestly, I don't know.  But the KDZ file is specific to your region & carrier.  I think the flasher works for all LG phones.  Just look around the internet for the right kdz file.  -- Sent from my TouchPad using Communities  		

                			Ok, I've looked all over and I can't find a firmware file. The LG server is supposed to have them, but I can't seem to find it.  My phone is Model: LGP870 Region: AATTBK Version: V10c  So the link should be this, but it doesn't seem to work for me.  hxxp://   The BIN is on the server, so the firmware should be also, right?  hxxp://***   Does anyone know how to access the firmware, or know another place to get it?  		

                			Use at your own risk: [link][/link]  -- Sent from my TouchPad using Communities  		

                			So, the software versions are hardware independent?  		

                			I removed the ESN from your link.  Never a good idea to post that online.  		

                			I'll keep that in mind. Thanks.  		

                			Ok, I've looked around and there are multiple files with that same version number, but are for different phones, and are different sizes. That mediafire link says that file's a year old, and my phone came out a month ago. I'll need one that matches my model.
