********WARNING*******
YOU MUST FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS BELOW EXACTLY, EVEN IF YOU DO I TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR DEVICE. THIS MAY BRICK YOUR DEVICE, CAUSE SPONTANEOUS COMBUSTION, OR CAUSE ANY NUMBER OF OTHER SERIOUS PROBLEMS. PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK.

Now the LONG awaited (by me at least) 3G / HSDPA, and general radio fix, for the LG V90x series of tablets is here.

Thanks go out to dabulina for finding the original bins that made this possible (http://forum.gsmhost...d-here-1035408/).

The following packages will flash the original radio firmware for that particular model by installing it in CWM Recovery.

Downloads
LGV900: http://depositfiles....files/02y9w9xqf (EUR)* V10E
LGV905R: http://depositfiles....files/0455w50p1 (CAN) V10C
LGV909: http://depositfiles....iles/3tvbkngyk� (US)* V10P
LGV909DW: http://depositfiles....iles/i4re1s8kb� (US)* V11A

*So far the only package I have tested is for the LG V905R on my own device. Feedback would be appreciated for that and the other devices.

Install Guide
Before you begin ensure your device has atleast 50% charge (just charge it right up to be safe) AND connect the power during the entire procedure)
Copy the zip file for your model to the device.
Reboot into CWM Recovery.
--Boot to fastboot mode
--Run the command 'fastboot boot [RECOVERY.IMG]'
Install the radio zip file now on the device.
Reboot system.
--Screen will go dark for up to 30 seconds, then the radio update will begin when you see
--the DO NOT POWER DOWN message. When complete the device will reboot and your
--system should boot normally but now have functioning 3G/HSPA


***UPDATE***
I have received a report that the radio install can fail with a message in read lettering appearing in the upper left corner during boot saying modem install failed. This is due to trying to install without the power connected and the battery is less than 50% charged. This will not brick your device.


You should now have function 3G / HSDPA again.

Good luck and I'd be interested to hear any feedback, especially from devices other than the v905r, thanks.

The links for these files are no good. Can someone give me a good link or email the radio file for the v909? I have moved to an area where tmobile is nonexistant so i got an at&t sim and bought a data plan but I can only receive an edge connection.

Hello, I have an LG v909 with a damaged baseband (broke it while rooting). I did a restore to stock following http://code.google.c...estore_to_Stock, and by mistake I accepted a firmware and baseband update to 3.1 and v10p (originally v11a). I really need to fix the baseband but unfortunately the files you posted are not working, could you upload them again? or guide me a little bit on how to use the files from http://forum.gsmhost...d-here-1035408/. I already downloaded the zip and got:

BIN_LGV909AT-00-V11a-OPN-US-MAR-08-2012+0_AP.bin
BIN_LGV909AT-00-V11a-OPN-US-MAR-08-2012+0_CP.bin

Googling I found they are supposed to be used with Smart Flash tool, but cannot find a guide on how to use it on v90x and I´m afraid I might damage it completely.
I cant seem to find a way to extract anything from this bin's.

Thank you

The links I provided in the OP are flashable zips you install through CWM Recovery. They contain the corresponding BIN files you have found but by using the update-binary and update-script from the 3.1 update for the TMobile devices. All I had to do was replace the radio bins for each different version. Keep in mind I have flashed each of these atleast once on my v905r at this point so I'm fairly certain they are safe for that model. Some radio bins provide different features, like SMS, or different frequencies. I never could get the SMS to work right on my model though.
Good luck.
