You can now boot your Fathom into Emergency Mode!


http://forum.ppcgeeks.com/lg-fathom/145549-emergency-download-mode-code-one-realy-works.html

As per the article, here’s the juicy bit:
Turn Off phone.
Hold the “5” key
While holding the 5 key, power on the phone.
It’ll load Emergency Rom Flash mode.
Flash whatever Rom you want to your phone (V5 or V7)

This allows us to start seriously try finding a way to make custom Roms. This also allows me to feel safer knowing I can restore my phone from a botched update. Now… to find out how to make a ROM.

    Hello,
    I tried emergency mode, and then flashing. After the phone goes into “Downloading… Do not unplug!” mode, and the update fails but the LGMobile Support Tool actually detects it as
    “Model: VS750, Version: VS750ZV7” and the text box says “The Cell phone is the latest version already. So you don’t need to update.” Unfortunatelly, it does not complete the flashing process. It does not restart and still says “Downloading… Do not unplug!”. Can you recommend anything?
    Regards,
    Ozkan

      When you’ve got it in flashing mode, you need to force a Flash to it. I haven’t done it, so I haven’t yet covered it in my blog.
      There’s a thread or two on LG”s support site, along with a few on PPCGeeks that show how to do it with the Fathom.
      If you want to get out of recovery mode\flashing mode, all you need to do is use the reset button on the side of the phone.

    Hi, This is also not working. any soltuions.

    • pizzaboy192 says:

      You need to force a flash. There is a method documented on PPCGeeks’ forum if you search for it. I haven’t tried it yet because I haven’t had the time to take all the precautions.
      To get it out of emergency mode, all you need to do is either take out the battery, or press the reset button on the side of the phone.

    Hi, I have tried the above, it still remains in download mode.any ideas.

    • pizzaboy192 says:

      Even after pulling the battery? you must be stuck in flash mode then.
      I haven’t been able to find the tutorial on how to force the Flash.
      If possible you can always call LG Support and see what they can do. I’ll keep looking to see if I can find how to force it to flash.

      A few posts down there is a nice long one with how to force it to flash again. Good luck.
