Stock firmware flashing on Android devices could be carried out in different ways. For example, in Google Pixel/Nexus devices case, the fastboot tool can be used to flash the official factory images. If we talk about Samsung Galaxy devices, users can use the Odin Flash Tool to flash the stock firmware.
Just like, one can install or backup stock firmware on LG mobiles using the LGUP Tool or LG Flash Tool with UPPERCUT. Not just this, but also this tool can also be used to downgrade or force-upgrade (with restriction) any LG device to a particular software model.
LGUP Tool earlier known as the ‘LG Flash Tool‘. However, it is a Windows-only firmware flashing software for LG mobile devices. Also, it is used by LG internally or in service centers to backup stock firmware on LG devices when required. If you want to detect the LG device, the user would need the device-specific DLL.
UPPERCUT is an extension used in LGUP Tool, designed by XDA Recognized Developer autoprime. It enables the flash tool to work and detect lots of LG devices without the need for the device-specific DLLs.
As the LG Flash Tool still works. But oftenly it is dodgy when it comes to the latest LG devices. And thus, we suggest you use LGUP Tool with UPPERCUT. As it is much more convenient and easy. Rather than that, we have still given links to download or install LG Flash Tool in case you want it, with the MegaLock DLL.
NOTE: If you want to use this tool, you must also install LG Android USB Drivers on your Windows PC (downloaded link are mentioned below).
