How to Unbrick / Flash LG K20 Plus

Step 1: Installing the necessary programs on our computer

First of all, we’re going to install all the necessary programs on our computer

LG K20 Plus Download Mode Driver

 

Lets’ start with LGMobileDriver v4.2 installation

Double click on the setup file to start the installation. You need to install LG USB driver only if it’s not already installed on your computer.

Complete the LGUP installation but don’t run the program yet.

Step 2: Connecting K20 Plus to PC in Download Mode & installing the necessary drivers

 

The next step is to boot our K20 Plus in Download Mode

To enter Download Mode –

Turn off the phone

Connect one end of the USB data cable to your K20 Plus

Press the Volume UP key as shown above

Keep the Volume UP button pressed & connect the other end of the USB cable to your PC.

LG K20 Plus Download Mode Firmware Update

“Download Mode” will flash for few seconds then it’ll change to “Firmware Update” as shown above.

Now, wait for the LG K20 Plus USB Modem & Serial Port driver to install.

We’re expecting LGE AndroidNet USB Modem & LGE AndroidNet Serial Port drivers to install successfully.

Step 3: Loading LGUP with the help of Uppercut & Flashing the Stock Firmware

LG K20 Plus Uppercut

After the successful driver installation, we would launch LGUP flashing software with the help of Uppercut.

If you would directly run LGUP, it won’t detect the connected phone.

Uppercut aids in the detection of the connected phone in download mode.

Thanks to autoprime, there’s no need to search for the K20 Plus DLL file anymore.

  1. bonjour, j’ai le message d’erreur “error: 0x2000, MP26010v_00_1214.kdz file does NOT support “REFURBISH” process”, que doit-je faire ? merci

  2. so i got the firmware in and it still asks for a secure startup password so what password is used? i tired every password i use and now i’m at 13 of 30 so is there a backdoor password? i guess if i make it to 0 the phone is useless and i might as well sell it for parts.
