    Download mode doesn’t show up on H502(TV) aka Y90 model, no matter how I try. Phone just boots up normally.

      Pls read new instructions.

      This particular model is sold in Brazil as LG Prime Plus HDTV and differs of most phones to enter download mode.

      After some trial and error I found a way that works for me:

      – Connect both devices (PC running, and phone off) to the USB cable;

      – Push the Volume Up button and keep it pushed. Forget the Power button.

      – Download screen will come up, release the button and start flashing.

      But there’s no way to cancel the upload screen out of taking the battery off, wich I never tried.

      Also, I suggest you don’t waste time trying roms made for other models in a 502TV phone, Flash Tool will simply check your hardware and refuse to start. That’s a good safety measure by LG’s developers (you would lose Radio and TV, or even brick your phone).

      Conclusion: Wait for a localized FOTA or LG’s support page download, if available sometime.

      Good luck!
