Now you have to keep an eye on the temporary folder of the flash software.

(It starts to create the files when you see the following message on the screen -> "Running the LG Mobile Phone Software Update" steht).
Right after it created "LGP940_AP.bin" replace it with the file of the "4. Patched v20d firmware part" folder. Now you have to wait till the firmware update is finished.
• After the phone has sucessfully booted into the new os start the "root.bat" from the "5. Root" folder. It reboots the device again and roots it.
this phone is great. i love its unique style and design. but battery life is too bad. just discharged 7h ago and now it's 30%. i even turned off all connection and did not use wifi and mobile data.
does anyone have any solution for this? may ics update fix the battery life?
if you can, please share your experience of the phone's battery life. thanks!!!
I have my LG PRADA since it came out, pre ordered it at PRADA in Madrid with its saffiano leather PRADA case, and I am really impressed. I love the design with those sharp corners. I upgrade to ICS and works really great!
What I dont like its the battery life, which is a nightmare, and the back plastic housing, which feels cheap. Anyway, sometimes it gets slow as all LG phones...
I am a 20yo guy and I am really proud to have a phone designed by this company. Those who say its a girly phone just have no taste for fashion and luxury lifstyle ;)
Update/uprade to ICS worked smoothly here in Germany. No any hacks, but using LG Desktop Software.
FESP, 10 Sep 2012Anyone knows about LG and Jellybean? Are they going to update Prada to JB?Yes they will, but it is reported to be next year at Q1 and the roll out at Q4. But you know LG sucks with updates. I got my ICS update 2 weeks ago And I'm from the Philippines.

Has anyone tried to use the same rom of LG Prada 3.0 P940 with LG PRADA 3.0 (LG-KU5400) for Korea. Are they the same?
cagampan1991, 04 Sep 2012P940, thats why P940 is almost double the price of L7. Unless of course if you would buy gray units.In my country Prada 3.0 has almost the same price as L7! yeah..

In my country the price of Prada 3.0 has been reduced to half of it's original starting price..it's 270€ now..This phone is not very far away from SG2 in terms of performance,not to mention the gap between them in terms of looks..even this forum is 13 pages long while SG2 has probably 150-200...I don't understand why people are not interested in a phone that delivers both in terms of performance and it's also one of the most beautiful phones to date...
