LG Aristo KDZ Stock ROM/Firmware Update MS210 & M210 Tutorial

Usually, there are 4 reasons for going stock (Clean Unrooted State) –

  • To recover the phone from a bricked state (boot loop, stuck on firmware update screen etc)
  • Claiming Warranty
  • Selling the Phone
  • Firmware Update

With an unrooted phone no matter how bad you mess with it, a factory reset usually solves the problem.When the bootloader of a phone is locked there is nothing much to do. Thus it’s less prone to bricking.

But when the bootloader is unlocked, and the phone is rooted you’ve to do the things cautiously to avoid a brick. It’s always better to keep a backup of stock firmware to deal with such untoward incidents.

Below is an easy step by step guide to restore LG Aristo back to the factory state.

I’ve zipped the necessary files which include LG USB Drivers, LG aristo kdz file, LGUP software, and uppercut.

There is a DLL file available over the net for LGMS210 but it does not help LGUP in detecting the phone when connected in download mode. So uppercut is nothing but the replacement for the LG Aristo DLL file.  Please download the zip file from below download link and proceed with the tutorial –
