LG IPS 24MP56HQ Monitor Display Quality Assurance Report

Today, when I clean up my desk, I found a piece of paper whose title is Display Quality Assurance Report for LG monitor.


It looks like LG will calibrates this type of product before the factory release.

I do not understand it right now. But, I post it here for future use, since I will destroy the paper.

How to flash the original ROM on LG P500h

Here is a record of how I flash my LG P500h android phone to the original Telus ROM.  You may use it as a reference, not a guide.



1. Download the KDZ. It is V20A for Telus in Canada.

2. Google and install the LG USB drivers if you don’t have it.

3. Download and install LG Mobile Support Tool

4. Download the FlashTools. (The link is broken.)

Use Premium download, if you want to download them faster.

How to Falsh the original ROM

1. Extract the “Flashtool” folder on the desktop, or where you want. Open the folder “Flashtool.1.0.54”.


2. Turn off the phone and connect it to the PC with the USB cable. Turn on the phone then.

3. Go back to Flashtool folder and run as administrator WindowsEnabler.exe. Go to the bar at the bottom right, and click once with the left mouse button over the icon of WindowsEnabler, so that appears the “On”message.


4. Now run as administrator UpTestEX.exe and do the following:

-Select the .KDZ file that you want to flash

-Set “3GQCT”

-Set PhoneMode “EMERGENCY”

Once done, click “Normal web upgrade test”


5. In the next window click “Upgrade Start”


6. Wait a few seconds an a new window will pop up.

– Click “Clear phone Software update Registry”

– Select different country if you’re not in Korea. Yes I select it because I am in Canada.

– Select Language as English

– Click OK


After this the LG flashing tool should start analyzing your phone and flashing the .KDZ

Once done you can detatch the USB cable and see if the phone boots up. However it will probably bootloop. In this case follow the Hard Reset Procedure below.

Hard Reset Procedure

The phone has to be off. Hold Volume – AND Power , a message will show up confirming the factory reset. Press Power Button twice , than wait. It will auto reboot.

Or, you may remove the MicroSD card, then power on the phone.

The main part of the guide is from the forum at

The way to Root my LG Optimus One P500h and LG Shine Plus C710h

It took me about 4 hours to get it rooted. The reason why I have to root LG Optimus One is that the apps came with the phone always remind me the updates. But, there is no enough internal storage room for them. I can not even delete them. To disable or delete the apps, I have to do the Root first.

OK, above is the background. Now I put the helpful records for reference, some one may need it.
It is LG Optimus One P500h. With Telus.

The tool is Super One Click 2.3.3. Download here.

TELUS LG Shine Plus got Android 2.3.3 upgrade finaly

Almost one year past. LG Shine Plus get it latest upgrade OS.
When I bought it in March 2011, it shipped with Android 2.1.
New OS brings some features I like.
1) App2SD works.
2) GUI looks more beautiful, and fonts are clear.
Because I do not jailbreak the phone, so App2SD is more important to me than others.
By move some data or programs to SD, I can install more Apps to it.
here you can download the firmware and also has upgrade instruction.
