Flashing Instructions

Charge your phone to 100% and backup all your data

Download the firmware and the necessary USB Drivers from here :
http://www.smartphenom.com/201...al-beta.html

Install the LG USB drivers on your PC

Download the LG KDZ Update Tool and install it on your desktop computer from here :
http://www.unclenet.de/files/KDZ_FW_UPD_EN.7z

Make sure the Microsoft XML parser is installed on your PC (it use to be). If it's not, install it from the .7z file you've just downloaded in step 4 then

restart your computer

Remove the battery, wait for 30 seconds then hold the "Volume Down" button and plug the original USB cable supplied with your phone (connect the phone to your PC) till the "S/W Update" appears on the screen.
now insert the battery and release "Volume Down" button

Let windows load the USB drivers, wait until it finishes completely

Unzip and Run the KDZ Update Tool (from step 4) as Administrator

Run Windows Enabler (from step 4) as Administrator and click on its icon in windows notification area on your task-bar to turn it on

Configure Type=3GQCT and Phone Mode=DIAG

Pick the firmware (.kdz) file you downloaded in step 2

Click on “Launch Software Update” button and wait for completion (it will take some time about 8-12 minutes , do not interrupt this process or you may brick your phone)

Wait until this lines appears
"1421 : CDMA: wParam = 2004, lParam = 99
1421 : Model Dll Msg Not Found(2004, 99)
1423 : CDMA: wParam = 2004, lParam = 100
1423 : Model Dll Msg Not Found(2004, 100)
1423 : CDMA: wParam = 2001, lParam = 0
1423 : Model Dll Msg Not Found(2001, 0"

When the update is complete, you'll read "Finished" in the log dialog of the Update Tool. Your phone will then reboot into the new firmware version (the first boot will take longer than usual)

If you did everything correctly, your phone must boot into the new software version. Enjoy the new features and share your experience in the comments section below!

Im an LG P880 Optimus4X HD user from Iran .
I download the European JB 4.1.2 version (V10A)
there are some improvements as i mention bellow

1- Adjustable Brightness panel and Auto correction in notification bar witch is very useful
2- Bring Android Beam combined by NFC feature
3- Native Task manager witch works just FINE
4- Native Application manager From LG that Updates Phone Features Automatically
5- Native File Manager From LG it self
6- Face Unlock feature with Liveness check
7- Fast Screen Rotation and improvements
8- New Camera app with Fast Brilliant Focus
9- New Weather app from AccuWeather
10- Email and SMS notifications become Awesome and i really mean it
11- App Info in notification bar just by holding touch on the app , that is a great shortcut
12- Rotatable Dial-Pad Screen
13- Front key lights on only by touching their area not every where else
14- Lots of new Font Types
15- Lots of new HD Background and Wallpapers
These are what i noticed so far in last 2 days

But the problems :

1- I did not notice any Battery improvements
2- i think processor power depends on battery . when the battery is lower than 20% it slows down but by full battery everything works just fine and so fast .

if any one find out any other new differences or features please inform me

thanks for reading

LG is becoming more powerful every year .
Even samsung/HTC/Sony fans are just posting their stupid comments in LG update threads.
Haters gonna hate, LG will release G2 and nexus 5 in 2013. Coz google know which is the best phone and they will give nexus manufacturing to the best OEM.

Sammyboys just be happy seeing samsung vs apple .
exynos vs tegra .. dont post ur stupid comments here ..

LG lovers .. wait for Nexus 5, megalodon ..

Since you have that magnificent Milky Way Galaxy what you are doing in the post regarding LG phone? Spreading around how much you love your Milky Way chocolate bar? Now continue to play with your toy, kiss it for an afternoon baby nap and tell it that you love it!

People who own LG phone are here to read about JB updates and are not LG fanatics, it is just the phone for god sake, but Samsung fanatics are everywhere.
