    I dont have uncapped or free access to internet, so have to pay for limited access. My question, is why after downloading the required firmware from one of the above links and starting the process, does it insist on downloading another firmware package or newer one if available? This is costly for me and I am quite happy with the one I downloaded. Is there no way around this? Please help… Using LG G2 D802 Open.

    • Can you please clearly explain what the actual problem is? Have u installed the firmware or just before installing the firmware you got the message to Download the another firmware package and what is insisting you to download newer version of the firmware. State it clearly.

    I m a newbie here. My question is does my phone remain unlocked?

    I made a rookie mistake. OK, I am a rookie. I bought an unlocked phone sold to me as ATT. It turns out to be a sprint LS980 loaded with a cyanogen mod that makes it think it is a tmobile d801 which is now running on ATT. All is ok accept I cannot access LTE. Can I load the ATT stock d800 rom without bricking? By specs, it seems possible that all versions have same hardware. So, rom would be the only determining factor. I would like full access. I would like to avoid a brick.

    thank you,
