    Chocolate Firmware All Flavors! V4 Red, Green, White, and V5 Black**

    **Strawberry is the only I dont have yet. I know I swa alot of posts for people looking for these. Here they are! Mods PLEASE DONT DELETE PEOPLE WANT THESE.

    PLEASE DO NOT PM ME ASKING FOR HELP OR HOW TO DO SOMETHING OR HOW TO FLASH YOUR TELUS CHOCOLATE TO VERIZON.

    You will need LG Download 1.6 to flash these. Install LG Download then PATCH IT with the V2 patch so the program wont ask for eri. Then flash the software! Its cake!

    http://rapidshare.com/files/15424090...VZV05.zip.html




    HOW TO INSTALL THE FIRMWARE:

    Install LGDownload
    Install the Patch (Included, in the Patch v2 folder)
    Install the VX8500DLL
    Reboot if you are asked to
    Connect the phone to the PC
    NOTE: either have a fully charged battery, or if you have the MEK, make sure you plug the charger into the data cable so you are powering the phone while you flash...
    Note: the less stuff on the phone (i.e. pictures, ring tones, etc) the better!!! it will go faster...

    Start up LGDownload (it puts icon on the desktop, you can use that to start it)
    Make sure the VX8500 DLL is being used (see the lower right section of the screen, it tells you the model/version)
    Click UPGRADE, hit F8, or use OPERATION pull down and select UPGRADE.
    Use the ... to the right of the BIN box... and browse to/select your T85VZV04.bin File
    Leave the rest on that screen UNTOUCHED...
    Click the UPGRADE DOWNLOAD START button.
    If prompted for SPC, enter 000000 and click OK

    so is it a bad idea to upgrade to the v05? and im just saying this cause i didnt know but maybe someone else out there doesnt either but if you are going to upgrade to a differnt color firmware for a differnt phone IE. white phone, cherry firmware, you have to rename the color in the bin to fit the phone color you have IE. white to cherry firmware T85VZR04 -> T85VZW04 then you can update

    Only thing I have seen bad about 05 is it just locks the picture and ringtones directories

    Nice szeny - I added these to my humpa.com/vzw page with a link to this thread.

    BTW, some of the old timers recommend LG Download 1.3.6.3 over 1.6 - I only use 1.3.6.3 too. But we aren't supposed to discuss how to obtain or google for these .rar files.

    I have V05 on the strawberry and Bitpim is locked down tight. I would not suggest flashing to this version.

    "Just"? Lame. Sounds to me like just another cash-grab from Verizon, forcing everyone to do everything, even changing your ringer, through Get It Now.

    Sticking with v04 unless someone can tell me why not to.
