Most of the Android devices need some flashing tool that provides the user with several advanced features like restoring the device to complete stock, recover bricked phone, flash OTA update, and much more. For instance, the Odin software for Samsung, the RUU package by HTC, etc. Similarly, a new tool has been developed by contributors and LG enthusiasts named LGUP. This brilliant tool will detect your phone and help you install the stock firmware, upgrade LG device to latest Android OS (which is Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow at this moment), or even unbrick a device using recovery mode/download mode.
Earlier, LG flash tool 2014 became quite popular among LG users to flash KDZ firmware files. However, the software had some bugs with connectivity and recognition of device/firmware. Later, a new tool was introduced named LGUP that now serves the same purpose. It is bug-free and a lot more stable. Here we have listed the latest LGUP flash tool versions and DLL files for most of the LG devices. Though any LGUP tool can be used for any device, there have been custom versions for each LG device as well. Note that, the LGUP flash tool is not an official software from the manufacturer. This was created by LG enthusiasts and developers to make the flashing procedure a lot easier. Moreover, f you are looking for an official update/recovery tool from the manufacturer itself, then you may want to check out the LG bridge/LG PC Suite. It is an official tool and is recommended by LG when you want to recovery or unbrick your device. You will see the LG bridge recovery tool listed below.
