How to Update LG Arena KM900 With UptestEx

Recommended Posts

Here i am going to explain how to flash your LG Arena KM900 with UptestEx tool.

First you need to have LG pc suite installed on your PC and updated to the latest version

You can find LG suite here: LG Mobile Phone Support

Caution: Follow these instructions at your own risk. I will not be responsible for any damages, injury or death resulting from use of these instructions. However, if you complete all the steps as given, you won’t encounter any problems.

The UptestEx tutorial:

1)  Download uptestex tool (the one i use) from here: UpTestEX_1.0.4.8.cab

Windows Enabler: windows_enabler.zip

If you arent satisfied with this, google it and u will get the latest version.

2)  Make a folder  ( name you want ) ( save where you want ) and then extract both  UptestEX and Windows Enabler on that one folder folder.. you will combine the two when you extract.. so like this

P.S: If firmware is changed, but there are bugs, then go into the Service Menu by pulling up the dial pad and typing "1809#*900#". Select "Factory Reset" WARNING: there will be no confirmation message, once you press "Factory Reset" the phone will erase everything.
