LGL 41C in the microwave !
« on: November 01, 2016, 01:19:34 pm »
 Good afternoon from downtown Phila PA .  First off,  I wanna applaud and support Mr. Cunningham's energy in providing options and a fun time in this Android pool . Seems to be the point for any serious knowledge about the Ultimate2 . Well, I've rooted w/ TowelRoot and put TWRP 2.8.7 in place . Laid your G3 port into place and, that's some smooth ROM you've got there, Ryan .  At this point, I thought almost anything was possible inside the learning curve of Android . Wanted to see how good Lollipop was.  Tried laying Mr. Dodson's  Warp 4G Lolli ROM and TWRP went with the Binary Updater error that seems to be very common .  Found a way around it and actually got it to load !  Was told that it was important to reboot into Recovery to exit properly and, then wipe cache. When I rebooted into Recovery, it crashed that Ultimate as Hard as I've ever seen !  No Power, no Recovery, the best deckjam I've ever seen as a Tech !  I find it almost impossible to believe that Mr. Dodson's Warp would ever load onto a w5c.  I think that ROM applies to either a Realm or an Optimus Exceed2 .  They're w5's but not a w5c !  Didn't realize how specific these ROM's can get . Thought that my only option would be QPST and QFIL .  But, where to get a TOT file ?  Answer -  you don't for a w5c !  If LG has one, they're not showin' it on the Web !  Would've bet my soul that I could hit that Snapdragon Dual Core chip just rite and wake it up. Apparently not !  The unit went back Priority Mail and, I feel like a pansy. Except for the research on how tuff it would be to debrick this thing. Can't use a Zip file or even an IMG on  QPST .  these people are very serious and high security !  Too much to say - I'll leave it at that for right now.

The funny thing is It's actually not possible to unbrick the L41C if you can't enter recovery,  TracFone removed the bootloader mode from the phone. I know how you feel. I has to mail my phone in about 10 times I bricked it so much, then when there was a working recovery from power off I never had a issue.

 And, here's where the deckjam REALLY begins !  I did stick it into a Tracfone mailer and sent it back to Libertyville IL . However, I got this fine unit from a cell dealer and not Tracfone themselves. And, because the dealer doesn't tidy up things, I sent Tracfone a return that, eventually, will not line up as me being the most current Owner. In other words, a paperweight.  Spoke with Corporate and walked away feeling dirty.  Might be one of the most challenging issues I've ever had with Tracfone.  Just luv speaking with Corporate.  They're almost as bad as Xfinity !
