[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 http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1886460 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) http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1783324 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. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1597488
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 csmg.lgmobile.com 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://csmg.lgmobile.com:9002/swdata/WEBSW/LGP870/AATTBK/V10c_00/V10C_00.kdz The BIN is on the server, so the firmware should be also, right? hxxp://csmg.lgmobile.com:9002/csmg/b2c/client/cs_auth_model_check.jsp?esn=*** Does anyone know how to access the firmware, or know another place to get it?

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.
