Fw Refusing to flash please help!

Hello,

I’m trying to flash LG GDR-8160B with fw GDR-8161B0102(ED) in MS DOS mode
The file was made for MS DOS flashing only with boot disk
It reports “download file GDR-8161B0102.dld not found”
But the file is sitting next to it with MS DOS 8-character filename limitation GDR-81~1.dld
What should I do for the fw installer to find its truncated file?? GDR-81~1.dld
Where should I put GDR-81~1.dld for the installer to find the truncated filename?
please help!!!

Hi,

try this: Rename the .dld file to something 8+3 compliant (like 8161_102.dld) and change the JD2.bat file accordingly.
Then try again.

rpc1.org is offline for maintenance at the moment. Just be patient, and wait until they will be back.
