  1. When I run LGUP it says Model is Unknown, then gives an error telling me I have to choose a known Model. Drivers are installed, USB debugging is enabled, not sure what else there is missing. Please help.

  2. Hey Devon. I might as well ask you because it doesn’t look like anybody gives a sh#+ about your question. I have the same exact problem. It’s really getting to be effin frustrating. I’ve tried everything. This method seemed to be simple enough and looked like the answer to my prayers but, as my luck would have it, you have the same problem and nobody has helped you y out 6 months later. Have you found a solution?? Fughhgghhgggjhhhgggg?!!!!!

  3. Thank’s.
    I’m on 24B and I have TWRP recovery ..
