This is how to unlock your Lg Vu Step by step with photos guide...
Files needed for the unlock are attachedhttp://www.lg-vu.com/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=3796.0;attach=4009NOTE: AFTER UNLOCKING PHONE WILL BE AS IT WAS WHEN YOU FIRST PULLED IT OUT OF THE BOX SO BACKUP ALL CONTACTS AS WELL AS ANY OTHER INFORMATION YOU HAVE ON YOUR PHONE!
PLEASE READ OVER EVERY STEP AT LEAST ONCE BEFORE ACTUALLY DOING THIS ON YOUR PHONE, FOLLOW EVERY STEP EXACTLY AND IN THE CORRECT ORDER.
EXTRA ATTENTION NEEDS TO BE GIVEN TO STEP 4 BECAUSE THIS IS THE STEP THAT BACKS UP CONTRACT INFORMATION ON YOUR PHONE.
Go to the connection settings and make sure your vu is in data service mode, also make sure your phone is fully charged and connected to your computer with a usb cord.
Browse to the location where you saved the downloaded files from above, Run the application named "Windows Enabler.exe" VISTA USERS: RIGHT CLICK FILE AND RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR.
Now down in the bottom right corner you should see three little windows like this
Click On that icon until it says on like this
Backup your phone, go to the location where you saved the unlock files and open the folder name "Backup" and then open the folder that best suits you,
- LGMDP_EURO is for European phones
- LGMDP_H3G is for all phones locked to the 3g network
- LGMDP_US is for North American phones
- LGMDP_OPEN is for all other phones
Run the application within the correct folder, once you have that program running hit select port.
Select your phone then hit connect
On the next screen you will want to click in the NV Default box, this will cause it to blink a check in the box briefly and allow you to then hit the start button.
Hit start and then it will look like an error screen pops up, this is totally fine. You want to click yes on this window.
After that let the program do its thing for about 5 mins, your phone will reboot itself a total of two times during this process but DO NOT touch anything until the program says download complete.
Browse to your LG unlock folder and run the "lg3g.exe" application, VISTA USERS: RIGHT CLICK FILE AND RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR.
You should now see the following window
Check "DIRECT UNLOCK" and then hit "APPLY JOBS" if all goes well you will see this window.
Proceed to step 6 if you see this ^
Repeat step 3 however this time around when you get to the part where you need to check the "NV Default" box also hit browse all the way to the right in that same row. Go to the same folder you ran the backup program out of and you should see a new folder open it and there will be another folder with your com number, open it and select the .nv2 file within.
Select the file then hit the start button, wait for the process to completely finish as you did before.
ENJOY YOUR NEWLY UNLOCKED VU!!!!!
