One more thing on that process I found, if the phone is functional and you can connect to your computer in debug mode, the kp500 program will reboot you into download mode without having to do the funky button press combo.

Posted Image "Security Error" Fixed!! - Credit goes to "Neph" for all the information.
"This Will Manually Update the LG Spectrum 2 to Android 4.0.4 ICS VS93010E Non-Rooted"
First downloaded the "KP500 Util tool" from http://androidfiles....ls/LG_Tools.zip and unzipped it to your desktop. "This next link gave me the latest firmware for my phone" first open up your browser, I used Comodo, but Chrome or Firefox should work, not IE, and copy/paste or click on this link http://csmg.lgmobile...k2.jsp?esn=IMEI to your browser. Now replace the "IMEI" (in the browser link) with your phones IMEI numbers (located behind your battery) Now wait for it to download. Then put the firmware download in the "LG_Tools" folder on the desktop.

Next Charge your battery to Posted Image "FULL".

Make sure you have the right driver package and LG Support Tool from http://www.lg.com/us...bile/lg-LGVS930 and install.

Next go into your Windows "Device Manager" and disable the device under Modems -> LGE AndroidNet for VZW USB Modem

Remove your battery and remove your memory card.

Now we are going to reboot your phone into "Download Mode" (re-insert your battery [not your memory card] and replace the back plate. Hold down vol up + vol down. Plug in usb cable while holding both buttons) after the download screen come's up on your phone, you can let go of the vol controls. Now open the "LG_Tools" file on your desktop and follow the directions bellow.

1. Run your "KP500-Utils-EN.exe" as administrator
2. Choose: I "Flash with assistance (file .cab)" and press enter.
3. Next it will show: "Phone Model (KP500)" enter VS930, and press enter.
4. Input the full path to your cab file including .CAB at the end (i.e. C:\Users\YOUR COMPUTERS NAME\Desktop\LG_Tools\VS93010E_05.S10E_05.P58015.R5.cab) and press enter.
5. Now Input the full file name of your cab without the Cab (i.e. VS93010E_05.S10E_05.P58015.R5) and press enter.

You will see the LG update tool pop up, and a indicator bar will start, then it will stop, and you will see a pop up that says "Restart" click on, now It will go threw extracting the cab file and then extracting a .bin file. Wait for your phone to finish flashing and let it reboot on its own. "This Took Some Time For It To Complete" Now It's Working Again..Thanks To "Neph"

Please help! I've done everything in the instructions but it's not working. The updater tool says it can no longer update due to a fatal error and I think my .cab is to blame. When I try to use the link and input my IMEI number I get this message: OK 990000762052746 LGVS930 AVRZBK 211KPYR0103274 20121107 VS93010E_05 http://csmgdl.lgmobi...5.P58015.R5.cab http://csmgdl.lgmobi...5.P58015.R5.cab GLOBAL/GLOBAL N N EG CDMA

So I tried just using this part: http://csmgdl.lgmobile.com/swdata/WDLSW/LGVS930/AVRZBK/VS93010E_05/VS93010E_05.S10E_05.P58015.R5.cab
When it doesn't stop downloading with a network error and does download fully I go through all of the steps and get tons of errors only to have my .cab say its corrupt after I've done everything. Any help would be awesome because I'm about to lose my mind.

I need the specific error messages it is giving you. It could be anything from a bad path being typed in, to that fact that some people try to extract the .cab file manually when you're not suppose to. Let me know, and I will try and help you out. I'm downloading the file myself to check if the needed .dll is inside it.

Did you rename your .cab file? You're typing LG930 instead of VS930 which is what the cab download says.

The cab is named VS93010E_05.S10E_05.P58015.R5.cab I didn't rename it. I've been very careful to type it exactly like that and not type LG anywhere.
Edit: WTH I see where you are seeing LG. I know I didn't type LG.

Going to try it once more, double checking my typing and will post log if it fails again.
