LG K30 Stuck on Firmware Update Screen – How to fix

A few days ago my LG K30 got stuck on the firmware update screen all of a sudden. I did a force restart to boot it again. However, I realized whenever I’m connecting it to my computer it again goes to the firmware update screen. This was quite frustrating. After doing a little research I was able to fix my phone.

In this post, we are going to learn how to fix an LG K30 stuck on the firmware update screen –

LG K30 Firmware Update Stuck

There are 2 possibilities for your K30 getting stuck in the Download Mode / Firmware Update Screen –

1. All of a sudden may be due to a Battery issue

In my case, the phone rebooted every time to the above firmware update screen when connected to a computer.

At this stage, you’ll fail to reboot your K30 using the power button. We cannot turn it off even by removing the battery as it’s non-removable.

In such a case, the only option left is to force restart the phone.

To force restart your K30, press the volume down and power button for 10 seconds or until the phone restarts.

While the phone is rebooting, release the power button but keep holding the volume down key.

Release the volume down button when you are on the K30 lock screen.

After doing this my K30 never got stuck to the firmware update screen until now.

2. Due to a failed System Update

A failed android system update on your K30 can also bring you to the Firmware Update Screen.

During an update, the phone should not be interrupted at all. In some cases, the firmware file can also be corrupt.

Whatever is the reason, our first try should be a force restart.

Let’s try to force restart our K30 by pressing the Volume Down & Power button for 10 seconds.

If this brings your phone back to life, well and good, else we need to flash a firmware file via LGUP.
