Unbrick / Recover Your Dead LG G3 from Qualcomm 9008 (All Variants/Except AT&T and T-Mobile)




Qualcomm Snapdragon’s are UNBRICKABLE part 1.5  🙂

Before i begin this fix is only for those, that has “Qualcomm QDLoader HS-USB port ( 9008 )” only. If your dead G3 has LG serial net port only, this fix wont work .

I bought my LG G3 white ( best color on G3 i think ) as bricked 3 months ago, ex-owner said that he had flashed wrong recovery and phone gone dead.  Those days, i wasnt experienced that much and i thought i could unbrick this G3 with help of Oneplus’s recover files ( Oppo too ) because they are sharing same platform, MSM8974. But then i realized it was a naive thought, i always forget that MONEY rules .. Firms like LG, Samsung, HTC and Sony dont share their service files with their customers, their services need money, lots of money. Only some Chineese firms do this, we all know them. Again, thanks for that Oppo ( OPO ), Xiaomi and Lenovo, they are unbrickable links,

QDLoader 9008, this is just a corrupt bootloader, like i said before, with right flasher and files its nothing to fear. If you are not familiar with this and your g3 is bricked, you will see a QHSUSB_BULK device in your device manager, after you install right drivers ( links are down, both 32 and 64 bit ), that device will be HS-USB  QDLoader 9008 and we are ready to begin.

Double click androidbrick_G3_fix.exe in the folder ( yes yes i know :)), if your driver is installed you will see your port, if not, youll see “Not ready” in little green window.







If you see your 9008 port just click “Model Info”, if you dont see your port just unplug usb cable, remove battery, back on both, your port will be seen. Mine is All EU Global class, if yours too, just click it again, if yours an other variant choose it from the drop down menu and Boot Diagnosis tool will ask if the info is correct, after you confirm it will examine your G3 and detect QFPROM Anti-rollback issues, this means corrupt bootloader in LG language 🙂








After you hit (Y)es it will ask you to select the Recovery folder, just choose your models name under androidbrick_G3_fix > AP_Chip > MSM8974_G3 > Recovery  Folder and flasher will begin to download necessary .bin and .mbn files to phone. It takes about 3-4 minutes to finish. Mine G3 was alive after maximum 5 minutes ( it was very excited to wait ). I was hoping to have the download mode at least but interestingly my phone just booted to OS like nothing bad has happened, i did not needed to install any rom. Yours maybe different, you may need to install kitkat or lolipop again, but hey we all know how to do that, right ? 🙂  Tot 😉

PS : The things is my folder does not help all 9008’s ! With every user im learning something new. For example there are software issues and give users 9008 ( corrupt bootloder like mine) and there are some 9008’s that become from power failures ! Unplugging usb cable while flashing a rom for example, or PC freeze’s, or electricity failures. Those can, may have “emmc” failures and can’t be restored easly or even not ! In these situations Smart Boot Diagnosis seems can’t reaching the emmc and 9008 port shuts itself down and comes back (you hear it, like usb unplugged and back in). Its a shame for a flagship version phone like G3, so now i know it does not use best quality emmc’s thats for sure (or other parts that cause that, im not sure witch part is responsible for a real hardware related brick like this), so be carefull with these examples yourself too please.

If this fix won’t work, here is the second step :


BoardDiag  v3.99c :

Hey, Great guide. Been looking for something like this for a couple days now. I am currently working on a “LG-D852, Canadian Variant, MSM8974AC” My problem started with a downgrade that was interrupted by a power failure (IDIOT neighbour flipped the damn breaker in the middle of it) now all i get is a dead android guy with a red triangle and exclamation point. I can force it into DLOAD Mode, which is the only thing that seems to work on it. I havent paid attention to what it shows up as in my Device Manager as the computer and phone are not with me right now but i do know 2 of 3 device drivers installed and recognized, 1 still unknown or not working right, probably just need to use the right drivers. Will this work for my device or would you be able to refer me to someone (as mentioned above in your post) who can help me with unbricking this device? any extra info or help would be great you can email me directly @Лёлё Антипов: @Лёлё Антиповgmail.com">Drummondmike2@Лёлё Антиповgmail.com

Hey great guide, been looking for exactly this kind of thing for a couple days. I am working on a “Canadian LG-D852 , MSM8974AC” where i can access download mode but pretty much nothing else because of a stupid downgrade that was intrerupted by a power failure (idiot neighbour flipped the breaker in the middle). Havent checked to see exactly what it appears as in my device manager but i do know it shows up properly for the most part (2/3 drivers installed and recognized) and i really need to find out how i can unbrick this damn thing, because if i dont specifically boot it into DLOAD mode it just goes to a dead android guy with a red triangle and exclamation point. Will this work for my phone or might you be able to refer me to someone (as mentioned above) to help with the unbricking of my device?

i have the original kitkat TOT i believe but the XDA Tuts are another reason im having these issues LGUP & LG Flash Tool (ALL) cant seem to fix the issue. im thinking im missing something important. I can see it in those apps on the COM41 but it just refuses to actually flash the firmware properly. constantly get a fail with it loading the TOT or KDZ and then saying 0.0k transferred. near as i can figure its doing a version check and not installing. but even with the version from LG (D85230H) and the version it says its looking for (D85220E) it wont do it.
