    Is this for the unlocked US996, or the US Cellular US996? Does it matter? I’m looking for a way to fix my (unlocked) US996 to recover from a bad ramdisk, which is preventing me from booting after updating my su binary. Thanks!

    • Hi, Send to us your phone IMEI and we check. For send use contact us form.

    • Professerbutterbean

      check the region description, it’s UCL for US Cellular

    • Nick Bransford

      US Cellular firmware works on the unlocked US996.

      Use LGUP and flash a .kdz in “upgrade” mode to return to stock.

  • xiao xu

    How can I flash the KDZ after unlocking the bootloader?(us996)

  • executive_vp

    what does BPT stand for?

  • Professerbutterbean

    Can you post the UCL firmware from before December 31st?

    • We haven’t old firmwares.

      • Professerbutterbean

        well that’s unfortunate.

      • palle p

        How come theres no firmware when my phone have production date of 2016/12/01 and release date 2016/12/01. Must have had some firmware on release?

        • Maybe in your phone old firmware but we haven’t older then US99610f_00_1205.kdz.

    • Nick Bransford

      Why do you want old firmware?

  • David

    I just purchased the US996 version and will be using it in Canada. I’m shocked that there were no firmware updates needed as the phone is about a year old and was a flagship model. How do I get and install the latest version (if any) of software/firmware updates.

    • Update by OTA or send phone IMEI using contact us form and we check latest firmware version for your phone.

      • David

        The phone says there is no OTA updates which is ridiculous. This was last years flagship phone and no OTA updates and obviously hardly any support. Doubt we will even get Android 8.1 which is inexcusable. Really wanted to eventually upgrade to the LG V30 but that’s definitely not going to happen now. Who wants a phone that doesn’t get proper support by the company that sells it. Even my US Note 4 was getting security updates constantly OTA and that’s an old phone. At least they seem to care about even their older phones.

    • Nick Bransford

      You can flash the US Cellular .kdz to the unlocked US996 and it’ll work just fine. I’m in Canada with the US996 with Fido and am currently running a clean flash of the US Cellular 10k .kdz without issue.

      • David

        Thanks, I guess I’ll have to go that route. Hopefully there isn’t a lot of bloatware and it doesn’t wipe my phone.

        • Nick Bransford

          It will wipe your phone. You should also unlock the US996 before flashing otherwise it’ll “convert” it to a US Cellular phone.

          • David

            I ended up using the LG software on a PC to update the firmware and it didn’t wipe the phone. It also has a newer firmware than what’s available on this site which is nice. Current version is n and was available Dec 7th so may be worthwhile using the Samsung app to back up the phone and then use it to automatically update the firmware.

            Phone seems a little slower right now so we will see if that improved.

  • Jason Anderson

    Why are there no updates for the US996 since January 2017? One of the reasons I bought an LG to begin with was in hopes of receiving updates outside of a carrier-provided phone.

    • Because LG not release update. We firmware fun club and post firmware when receive.

    • Nick Bransford

      As mentioned below, you can flash the US Cellular firmware to an unlocked US996 V20.

  • gonzalo outerelo

    Ota says you have no new firmware, and i dont know what its the last to mi 996? Can you tell how compare this roms to the one it has installed?

    • Use contact us form and send phone IMEI we check your region,

  • Aleksandr Shlotov

    I need a advice. Now my LGV20_966 are locked. I bought on AliExp but when I set my sim I got his result. I live in Cambodia and I want know which firmware i should set up for unlock and work on local nets?
